Sharon Yumeng Wang graduated from Parsons the New School for design in 2013 with a thesis collection chosen by professionals for the Parsonsʼ Annual Runway Show. She launched her eponymous label the very same year. Inspired by the myriad of decorative arts that impacted the architecture and landscape of the metropolis with a clean overall style, Sharon’s works can show great levels of sophistication while displaying elements of playfulness at the same time. She believes firmly in the detail, craftsmanship and material of her design and is proud to present her own custom prints every season. [Read more…] about Get to Know NYC Fashion Designer Sharon Wang
Fashion and New York City go together like Peanut Butter & Jelly in so many different ways, and it is always an incredible thing to see a brand go from zero to 180 in such a short amount of time when developing what they are doing and having a great response from it. That can be said about the amazing brand called Leota. Launched only five years ago, retailers took notice of what makes this line so special and great in their easy-to-wear fabrics, fashion-forward silhouettes and so much more. Whether you are looking for a beautiful dress to enjoy in the springtime, or want to rock a maternity dress in style, Leota has you covered. Carried not only in its New York City base but in over 300 fine retailers nationally, Leota promises to craft each dress for a woman’s body with a touch of glamour that will leave you feeling stunning and happy. We recently spoke to their fabulous founder, Sarah Carson, about how this all began and so much more. [Read more…] about One on One with Leota New York Founder Sarah Carson
HonestFrugalChaos decided to have a little fun with how to be and signs you are a Frugal-Fashionista. Humor and no filter honesty is what HonestFrugalChaos is all about. If you can’t laugh at yourself and at life, well then, buckle-up babe because life is going to be a lot bumpier ride than need be for you. Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s the truth.
A ‘bit too much’ jewelry styled outfit is a love of HonestFrugalChaos… called the Gaudy Grandma style. If done right (by avoiding the ‘I’m wearing all the jewelry I own’ look) it can actually be a very fabulous look. Think of it as if your Grandma raided your closet but still piled on the clip-ons and pins for the early bird special! It flirts with ‘over the top’ which is why I love it!
