Heavy on Fashion Fashion 101: Vintage Classic: The Delphos Dress

There are many dresses in the world that are wonderful to wear. The sheath is a classic. The sundress is a wonderful classic. The Maxi dress is a must have for this summer. Recently I have a great appreciation of the Delphos Dress. The fabulous ancient Greek inspired dress created in 1909 by Mariano Fortuny. 




This dress is beyond fabulous. Look at Clarisse Coudert a.k.a Mrs. Condé Nast wearing this classic Delphos tea dress. Its a bit hard to find a orignal Fortuny Delphos Tea Dress and pricey too. The famous Christie's Auction House sold a rare Fortuny Dress for $8,752

 Though the modern interpretation of Fortuny's delphos gown is great nothing beats a vintage Delphos Dress by Mariano Fortuny. You can never go wrong with a classic!  So here is a huge thank you to Mariano Fortuny for the Delphos Dress. One of the many dresses that has changed the world of fashion!

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…
