Xpandasox Revisited

Xpandasox Revisited

Last November I introduced you to a fabulously clever and stylish hosiery brand called Xpandasox. Read my original post about Xpandasox that I styled with an Amanda Valentine tunic, and this outfit is also featured in their 2016 lookbook. The concept of an expandable calf was originally conceived for plus-sized and athletic women with wide, muscular calves. But Xpandasox has earned a place in the adaptive clothing market as well.

Baciano

Baciano

As big as I am on shopping locally whenever possible, sometimes circumstances dictate otherwise. Los Angeles based clothier Baciano recently contacted me to try two pieces - the Mallory and the Eleanor -  from their online collection and do a little show-and-tell for my readers. I received these pieces for free to showcase and review, but the opinions are my own.

O'More Fashion Show 2016

Connie Richardson, co-founder of Nashville Fashion Week, often reminds us that, "Nashville Fashion is more than just a week." So, before I show you any more of NFW2016 (and there are still scores of looks from gifted designers to peruse) I want you to see the kind of talent coming from Nashville's prestigious O'More college of design. This year they held their annual fashion show in a hanger at John C Tune airport - on my birthday. Talk about a party.

The Fashion Is For Every Body Fashion Show

The Fashion Is For Every Body Fashion Show

I've have befriended so many of Nashville's talented fashion designers and boutique owners that fully support the idea of inclusion and body positivity. When I wear their clothing and accessories I am raising awareness that fashion isn't just for young, able-bodied supermodels. It's for all of us. To that end, I've partnered with my bff Krystle Ramos, of Pura Vida Vintage, to co-produce Music City's very first evening of inclusive runway segments featuring male and female models of all ages, races, sizes and abilities. And I need your help to make it happen.

Wear It Out By Manny Cuevas

Wear It Out By Manny Cuevas

Talent is not diluted by circumstances or eclipsed by someone else's shadow. It endures, waiting for the right moment to emerge again - because, of course, it never left. For Manny Cuevas that moment is back on the horizon. He will soon be re-launching his label, Wear It Out by Manny, with a fresh take on iconic wardrobe staples all with his trademark style. I've seen the sketches and the pieces are undeniably chic, yet retain that edginess so prevalent in the editorial runway lines.
