Heavy on fashion reads - The Bloody Shoe Affair by Joy York

100_0421


Hello all my fashion divas and gurus! As you all know, I love books. I am a huge book worms so when I received The Bloody Shoe Affair by Joy York to review on Heavy on Fashion, I was excited. As a young kid in the 90's, I loved Nancy Drew novels and any mystery books for that matter.  So when I first cracked open, The Bloody Show Affair was suspecting a Nancy Drew type of novel. I am happy to say, I received so much more much more. 


The Bloody Shoe Affair is set in 1968 about a shy teenager named Christi who visits her charismatic seeking Lily in Roselyn, Mississippi. Lily is a jailer's daughter and a great sense of adventure. Though this book focuses around a mysterious pair of bloody shoes found at a murder scene, it also about Christi coming into her own. In one summer, two girls learned how strong and brave they could be. I don't want to give too much away but it was filled with action, suspense, and teenage hijinks that are laugh out loud funny. I also found myself reflecting on my own teenage experiences though not that as excited as The Bloody Shoe Affair. 

I also loved that Joy used her real life childhood experience to find inspiration of The Bloody Shoe Affair. It gives a great and realistic feel to the novel. This book gives a real look at finding and exposing oneself to new experiences.   If you have a mystery novel lover and you need to buy a gift for the holidays, I would suggest adding The Bloody Show affair.  It is a great read for any age.

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…
