LA Art Show 2015 Premiere Party

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On January 15th I attended the 20th Anniversary of the LA Art Show Premiere party.  Located at the LA Convention Center, the show kicked off with a star-studded benefit for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, which is close to my heart. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. When treated here, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for medical, travel, housing or food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. I had the opportunity to visit the hospital last April to see first hand what is provided for these children and it’s amazing!

Hosted by Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo, the opening night premiere party welcomed more than 5,000 celebrities, philanthropists, collectors, and art patrons.  There was so much beautiful, cool, unique, mesmerizing art to look at that you need the full 3-4 hours to go up and down every aisle to catch it all an absorb it!  Anything colorful caught my eye, along with things I had never seen before or things that look unreal.

One of my favorites was the acrylic paintings of Eugnia Song. Her mixes of color were spot on and they were very unique!

Staying true to my colorful self, I wore an ASOS watercolor paint dress that made me feel like a walking piece of art!  I kept an eye out for other stylish fashionistas, but it seemed many opted to wear black (where’s the fun in that?)

Other celebrities and tastemakers that attended include James Franco, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Melanie Griffith, Nixx Sixx, Seth Green, Olivia Holt, Yara Shahidi, Dania Ramirez, and Josh Bowman

The LA Art Show took place from January 15-18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, South Hall. If you were able to attend, what were some of your favorite pieces? For additional information about the LA Art Show, please visit www.laartshow.com.

Touchscreen gloves: Yes, we need them!

Living in Los Angeles I never thought I would need gloves.  I left them all behind in Chicago. Fast forward to now and for someone who works outside with a laptop and touch-screen phone, gloves are a necessity.  It has been rather cold here in LA lately and I remembered that a friend gave me a pair of touchscreen gloves last year that I never used.  I have worn them all this week and what a lifesaver they have been!  My hands and feet are the first and last body parts to get cold, so having these gloves in the elements have made my tasks much easier. Using my cell phone has been a breeze! So for my last post of 2014 I thought it would be nice to highlight where you can buy a cool pair of touchscreen gloves (all in my favorite colors)!  Please note these might not be suitable for extremely cold conditions!

Wear It How You Want It

This ASOS dress went from long sleeves to short sleeves - which do you prefer?

This dress went from long sleeves to short sleeves – which do you prefer?

I always love a colorful in-your-face print on clothing.  This ASOS artwork dress I bought while in Chicago from my favorite fashionista-on-a-budget store Crossroads Trading Co. fits that description spot on. I purchased this dress a year ago and was waiting for the perfect event to wear it too, and finally I wore it to Art City LA.  But a week before I wore it out, I stared at it and felt I needed to alter the dress by changing the long sleeves to short sleeves.

Fits perfectly and love the sleeve chop!

Fits perfectly and love the sleeve chop!

Living in LA has me spoiled all year round with the beautiful sunshine and warmth.  Seeing long sleeves on this dress didn’t feel right, and I wanted some arm exposure and room to breathe!  Once the change was made I was so glad I did it! I enjoy wearing bracelets, so this allowed me to showcase some fun silver jewelry.  The sleeves were now the perfect length and I was ready to wear it out and feel my best.  My takeaway from this is, if you feel an article of clothing needs a change to adjust to your lifestyle or fashion sense, go for it!  Now what else should I alter in my closet?

The Limited Water Tower Place in Chicago

On Thursday October 24th, The Limited at Water Tower Place in Chicago got fancy and celebrated it’s 50th Anniversary of creating chic styles for women.  I just happened to be in town that day and was invited to attend the celebration!

The evening began with champagne and hors d’oeuvres while attendees sipped, savored and shopped!  Next there was a fashion show featuring the latest looks from The Limited, co-hosted by Senior Vice President of Design, Elliot Staples, with local fashion expert, Corri McFadden.

The Ultimate Celebration Dress: The Riley Dress

This was also where the Ultimate Celebration Dress was revealed, that was voted on by the public.  There were three dresses to choose from and the Riley dress was the winner.  It’s the perfect dress for a wedding, holiday party, anniversary or whatever you want to celebrate!  I spoke with Elliot about the dress which he designed and he mentioned that the movie The Great Gatsby was an inspiration along with the fact that he wanted to create a dress that women of all sizes could wear.  There are limited quantities, so grab yours before it’s gone!

Another highlight of the event was The Limited donating $50,000 to my fave organization that I volunteer with, Dress for Success.  Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success was on hand to accept the check which will be of great help!  I was so happy to be a part of this great evening of style and giving back.  Here’s to another 50+ years of The Limited!

Who Has It?

Jennifer Colli, Founder of Who Has It? App

Jennifer Colli, Founder of Who Has It? App

“If you have great style, share it with the world!”  No matter who you are, tech entrepreneur Jennifer Colli wants you to post what you like and look for what you like with a new app called “Who Has It?”

I sat down with Jennifer to discuss her new business and learn more about who she is.  Having her clearly point out that this will be no 30 minute meeting (can’t know about her in such a short period of time), it was great to talk to someone who is very passionate about what she wants to do.  She’s young, driven, and ready to work with anyone who says yes and sees she is serious about creating something many can use and benefit from.

Who Has It will allow you to share images of your style and you’ll also be able to get information on things you want. Love a jacket that you saw Jessica Alba was wearing?  The app will not only tell you what brand it is, but it will also let you know where to buy it, or buy something similar at various price ranges.

This app is also for retailers as well.  Taking a trip to Toronto but want to check out styles available in boutiques near your hotel beforehand?  Just hop on the Who Has it App and do a search near your accommodations and get a peek on what’s in store – window shop on the app.

Jennifer is really excited about celebrities latching on to this as well as retailers and you. She might be young, but she is quite the businesswoman sharing this advice for other young entrepreneurs – “There is always room to negotiate if your passion for your company is inspiring. People don’t mind helping entrepreneurs when they see there is drive, ambition, persistence, & dedication. No matter who tells you no – there’s always one who will say yes. So many entrepreneurs give up & don’t realize just how close they were to breaking through.”

Aiming to launch this September, it will be the perfect app with you in mind where you are the star of style!

Anthropologie Crush!

On my day off on Wednesday, I decided to stroll around 3rd St. Promenade.  One store I stopped into is Anthropologie.  I must say I love the unique clothing they bring into their store!  They offer so many colorful options it’s crazy.  2 things I am crushing on right now:

Lacepaint dress by Hunter Dixon.  $228 at Anthropologie

As soon as my eye caught this dress I wanted to try it on.  It was so eye catching, feminine, and yelling SPRING!  I would pair this with silver pumps, pearl earrings or silver simple earrings. You can wear this to a wedding, brunch or even a baby shower.  I wasn’t familiar with who Hunter Dixon is, but then I saw she is a current contestant on Fashion Star.  I hope she wins!

Rafe Tote

I love the colors on this tote! It’s perfect for the weekend, the beach or a mini getaway!

Both of these would spice up any look and the key is to have these as the focal point since they are both busy prints.  Enjoy these looks and if you buy them feel free to share your looks!
