Hello, all my divas and gurus! My name is Malan. I am divorced suburban Jersey Girl. Heavy on Fashion is a lifestyle blog that I started over seven years ago. The main reason why I started this blog was to highlight new designers and products. The mission of Heavy on Fashion has changed. I am talking about damn near everything from my favorite foods, music, and all that my life has to offer!

Fashion Writer & Blogger Meet and Greet and launch of 214 magazine@ Top Shop
Ok so I found out about this Fashion Writer and Blogger Meet and Greet @ Top Shop in NYC from one of my former Meetup groups! With little time, I zipped up my Kenly Uggs, put on a huge pendant necklace my mom gave to me when I was younger, and ran out my apartment like a bat out of hell! I hopped on the Path Train, transfer to the F train to see Indigo Clarke, Karen Blanchard, and the launch of TopShop's magazine 214. The things I do for fashion!
Here is what went down at TopShop in NYC
Fashion Writer and columnist Indigo Clarke and Karen Blanchard -blogger of the Where Did U Get That. The best thing about this Meet and greet event was the Q&A section. Many bloggers and writer got a chance to pick the brains of Indigo and Karen. I learned tons about how these ladies got their start by doing what they love to do. Very inspirational
Here Indigo Clarke talking about her great article in the new 214 magazine. 214 was launch by Topshop. The magazine was full of great looks for spring 2011.
There were tons of bloggers, journalists, and freelance writers asking great questions about how to attract more readers, what is the best way to get into the forefront of the industry, and more.
Please tell me these are BakedByMelissa Cupcakes! You know I had one, red velvet, so good!
I love this dress, which I believe is from Topshop. I looked for the dress online but it was no where to be found so check out your nearest Topshop store for this dress. Love the Necklace and dress combo!
These platforms shoes from TopShop's Unique collection, very cute.
At the end of the event,the ladies Karen and Indigo, continued to take pictures with fellow writers and bloggers. They were very nice and dished some great advice for everyone! Side Note: Love Indigo's outfit - the Blue Embroided Pinafore Dress is from Topshop. At the end of the day, the event was really great!
Hey guys! As you all know, I had a chance to cover Shecky's Girls Night Out in New York City. I am a fan of Shecky's event but this time around I found some great fashion, a celebrity sighting, and of course some great cocktails. Here is Heavy on Fashion at Shecky's in NYC!
Vh1's Tough Love Miami @ Shecky's
Host and matchmaker Steve Ward along with fellow match maker and founder of Master Matchmaker Joann Ward (also Steve's Mom!) was at Shecky's giving out some great dating advice to all the ladies in New York!
Don't you just love this dress. Fabulous!
Here is a look at the crowd for Steve and Joann. Many ladies had some awesome question about relationships and dating. I have to say that Steve and Joann gave some grand advice.
Sidenote: I am really loving Joann's style!
When Steve took off his jacket, I knew he was about to get down to business! He did and gave out some much needed Tough Love! Check out their site at http://www.mastermatchm…
Hey everyone! I had a great opportunity to visit the The Alex Soldier Showroom in New York City. I became familiar with Alex Soldier at a private showcase in New York City. When I received a email from Maria Soldier, Executive Director of the Alex Soldier Showroom, to come and check out the Alex Soldier collection in New York City. I was honored.
Alex Soldier has a vast collection of jewelry and artwork that is exceptional in craftsmanship and quality. From unique luxury jewelry with exotic diamonds and precious stone designed for the rich and famous to awards for Royalty. Alex is a creator and a example of true artistry in the world of luxury.
Here is one of my favorite piece from Alex's collection. This starfish ring is full of precious stones including diamonds. The best thing some of Alex Soldiers' pieces is that are interchangeable. Each piece has a custom key for each interchangeable piece. They can be a ring or a pin. I believe the company is also working on making these…
