How Independent is your Closet - Accessories-Part1

I love independent fashion designers. They are fresh and not easily influenced by fashion trends. Today I am going to talk about some of my favorite indie accessories that I found out about via twitter. Yes Twitter! Who would have thought this micro blogging service would lead me to some chic and unique fashion lines from all over the world. The only question I have for you is - How Independent is your Closet?


Funk Eyewear
I found out about Funk Eyewear when they started to follow me on twitter. I checked out their website and fell in love. Now I am following them too! Funk eyewear is sick! They are unique and stylish. Though I love the entire line, my favorite eyewear collections are the Sashee Schuster and the Funk Food. Fink Food is just that - funky and stylish frames. The Sashee Schuster collection has a great vintage look. Funk Eyewear is not available in the US. I know I am sad too. I hope that the Funk eyewear will have them available to us Americans in the near future. Some good news - Funk eyewear is in London! So if you are traveling to see Big Ben or would love to shop at Brick Lane Market or Harvey Nichols, than make sure you get yourself some funk eyewear. They are too hot to pass up! For more information on Funk Eyewear please go to http://www.funk-eyewear.com/

BoutiqueDeBandeaux

I love handmade accessories especially for hair so had to show some love to BoutiqueDeBandeaux at Etsy.com. BoutiqueDeBandeaux hair accessories have some great piece for headband lovers. I think the entire BoutiqueDeBandeaux is worth buying especially the Fascinator Bridal Natural Hair Wedding Headband. When I renew my wedding vows, I am using this as a veil. I also love the Black White Feather Rhinestones headband. So cute! The entire shop is handmade couture headwear. The best thing about BoutiqueDeBandeaux is that their accessories work with any type of hair. Go and check out BoutiqueDeBandeau at http://www.etsy.com/shop/boutiquedebandeaux



Shocking Goat

When I first saw the name Shocking Goat as a follower on my twitter page, I was like WTH is a Shocking Goat but I was pleasantly surprise. Why do I love Shocking Goat so much, the are water resistance, colorful, and the faces of Shocking Goat Watches are interchangeable/fresh swap - see video below:


Shocking goat has tons of colors available so you watch can match any color scheme. SO check out Shocking Goat at http://www.shockinggoat.com/

I hope you enjoyed part 1 of How Independent is your Closet - Accessories


Side Note:I did not receive any compensation for writing this either I do not work for or affiliated with any of these companies. I just love their work and wanted to spread some stylish news to all of you!

Heavy on Fashion at Shecky's Girl Nights out in NYC - Fall 2011

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…

Heavy on Fashion Goes to The Alex Soldier Showroom

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…
