Born Free Fashions


The aim of Born Free is to raise awareness as well as funds toward a surprisingly simple solution to one facet of the AIDS epidemic in Africa — that it requires women take only a pill a day to stop mother-to-child HIV transmission during pregnancy.  “The wonderful thing about Born Free is that it already is a solution,” said von Furstenberg. “Usually, you work toward these incredible breakthroughs. Here, if women take a pill a day, every day, their children will be HIV-free, and that is unbelievable. It’s not just hope — it’s a reality.”
With the support of Anna Wintour and Diane von Furstenberg and 22 other designers that are also mothers, this merchandise is available at Shopbop.com. “It is something the fashion industry has always been behind, right from the very early days when we got together to support 7th on Sale,” said Wintour. . The list of participating designers are Carolina Herrera, Miuccia Prada, Marni’s Consuelo Castiglioni, Alberta Ferretti, Chloé’s Clare Waight Keller, Céline’s Phoebe Philo, Isabel Marant and Vera Wang. There is nothing more important than a healthy baby. It gives HIV-positive mothers hope for a great future for their children.”
So let’s go shopping to help.  http://www.shopbop.com/

Snooki's Fashion Line

When do reality stars turn into designers?  Really?  Let's leave fashion to the designers.


That’s right, the leopard print-clad reality TV star is making headlines again. But this time-it’s for her brand new clothing line.
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi recently debuted her fabulous first fashion line, SnookiLove by Nicole Polizzi, at the Magic Market Week clothing convention in Las Vegas last Tuesday.
Polizzi joined forces with clothing manufacturer Double Zero for her new women’s sportswear collection.
“After trying a few companies I realized Double Zero was the best fit for my line,” she said. “Hard working people who understand where I wanted to go in terms of fashion and designs.”
While her clothing is available for sale on her website, Snooki still hasn’t announced who will be carrying her new collection.

Olympic Style

The 2014 Olympics are over.  The gals at SoHo Accessories want to congratulate all the athletes that took part in the games.
But on to the style of one host who made the Olympics fun and stylish, former Olympic skater, Johnny Weir.

This man takes fashion seriously and has so much joy in doing it.  Though he has worked with many stylists like Rachel Zoe, he said, " No one is going to style me better than me.  I know myself best."
He went to Sochi with 4 huge suitcases, the size of Ford Focuses.  He claims that he always over packs. 
Fashion at the Olympics are generally the ice skaters with their memorable costumes.  So it is not surprising that Johnny Weir has stood out whether on the ice or off.


Tara Lipinsky and Johnny won't say what they will be doing in Pyeongchang for it is to early to tell.
Hopefully, they will be back.

Gold Braid

What an innovative idea for a new twist.  TIGI Creative from London makes hairstyling an art form.
Love it!


Fashion Week Strange Events

Strange happenings at Fashion Week 2014. A streaker in an animal-print G-string, crown and bright red socks attended the Prabal Gurung show. And for the record, his skimpy piece of cloth included animal ears, googly eyes and a red tongue. The model maintained her cool and didn't even flinch.



A woman sticks her finger in chocolate syrup that was dripped down a wall during the presentation of the Fall 2014 Opening Ceremony show during Fashion Week Sunday, Feb. 9, 2014, in New York. How can you concentrate on fashion with all that chocolate? Designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim were inspired by a trip to Belgium so that's where the chocolate comes in.

Kate Moss Fashion Advice

Everyone knows the English model Kate Moss who rose to fame in the 1990 is a style icon. Well now she has a fashion column in The Irish Independent. The first line of her column clearly states: “If you find a look that works for you, stick to it.” Her next words of advice were: “The pencil skirt is one of the most useful items to have in your wardrobe, as it’s always saucy – especially in black – and seems to work for almost everyone.” Here are 5 more tips from Kate.
Look to the Past “It’s important to have some inspiration or a reference point when you’re dressing.” Work Your Style “It’s often only other people who notice you have a signature style. I don’t think I’ve got one, though other people tell me I do. But it doesn’t matter – even if you do tend to wear the same things all the time, it’s how you wear them and your attitude that counts. Dressing is like modeling – you can constantly adapt and change.”
Dress for Your Mood For the most part Moss says she wears whatever she feels like at the time. For example an all black ensemble denotes she may be having an “off day.” Events are a completely different story. Moss plans ahead and she suggests that you do too. “If you’re going to an important dinner, you should plan what you’re going to wear, as you don’t want to look silly. If I’m going to an event, I make sure I plan ahead, so that I don’t have a fashion crisis.”
Prepare to Suffer Now we all now this to be true. “Sometimes, it’s more important to be well-presented than to be comfortable.”
The Finishing Touches Moss says she always has a pair of Ray Bans in her bag. “They’re a real staple.” She reminds us that it is important to accessorize and utilize scarves, hats, and sunglasses. Her husband Jamie Hince advises her not to pair hats and sunglasses because it looks like she is trying to wear a disguise. As for jewelry, the more the merrier. “I don’t think you can ever have too much.”

Fading Fashion Trends of 2013

Fashion comes and goes as we all know.  These fashion trends are no longer stylish for 2014.
Peplum tops were seen everywhere from blouses to jackets.  Save your money they are on the way out.
Once again ripped, torn or colored jeans should be no more.  We have said that before but they keep coming back.
Wedge sneakers and flatforms.
Cutouts.  Personally I don't know how this became popular.  No lumps or bumps in order to wear this trend, and as you know most women have some.  Cutouts will be around but now they will have lace inserts which makes it a little more flattering to wear.
What fashion trend from 2013 do you think should fade?
