Summer Style 2014

Welcome to Summer!

I’ve been enjoying free screenings (I even got to attend the NY Premiere of Edge of Tomorrow, with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt in attendance!), BBQs, potlucks, blockbuster movies, outdoor on location photo shoots, World Science Festival at Washington Square Park, Farmer’s Market and some great dinners out… All in fashionable style!

Some of my favorite women’s summer wear styles are full skirts, lace, aqua, biker jackets, skater skirts, florals and bright colors. And on men: Nautical stripes, white, chambray, messenger bags and fitted blazers.

One of my all time prettiest shirts is a pop of mint green color in lace, which I like to wear accented with a bright pink flower.

Then there’s aqua blue, that beautiful color between green + blue really stands out!

Another great summer trend is bright colors. This hot pink top really dresses up the black full skirt.

And of course, floral print which can be paired with biker jacket when it gets a bit nippy on those summer evenings out!

New York Fashion Week Recap

chrishabana1

This past New York Fashion Week, I had the chance to model for CHRISHABANA fashion jewelry line, Spring/Summer 2014 Collection — “TecTonic.” Each of us models had to hold a strong stance on a raised platform for the entirety of the event, displaying the jewelry beautifully to all the guests and look good for the countless photos taken. Half the models were painted in silver and the other half, including me were painted in rose gold glitter on our arms, legs, combed through slicked back hair and forehead, with rouge on our cheeks. It was a chic futuristic alien-esque look and my particular look consisted of a silver arrow-like jewelry piece glued between my eyebrows, sparkling silver earrings and a gorgeous glittering silver and pale purple necklace that the crowd ooh’d and aww’d over, proclaiming it the favorite piece of the night.

This TecTonic CHRISHABANA jewelry collection “drew inspiration from linear seismic readings, geomorphic shifting plates and joy’s division’s unknown pleasures album, presenting a sophisticated jewelry collection evoking primitive futurism.”
