Minkoff-tacular, Wang-A-Licious, Whole-Lotta-Hoffman

Earlier this month was the ever alluring New York Fashion Week.

A fantastical time of year where creative spirits collide in a frenzied week of fun, fashion, flirtation, & fabulousness!

Scanning the images of various stylish runway fashion shows I came across my all time favorites! I’ve included looks from all three designers: Rebecca Minkoff, Alexander Wang & Mara Hoffman.

I love the versatile looks created in all these fashion forward collections.

Specifically, however, the colors & prints found in both the Minkoff & Hoffman collections speak directly to my style esthetic. I just love how bold & bright their designs are!

As for Alexander Wang, his Spring line is daring.  An edgy exploration of menswear inspired fashion, made with the most delicious feminine twist and a lusciously simple color palette; featuring structured  pieces to be combined with your favorite everyday looks or put-together for a work-friendly, business approach or finally, dolled up for a glamorous night out!

Get carried away with these whimsical fashion designs! Enjoy!

Fashion Inspiration of The Day

Free People Fall Shoes

I found this FAB photo of some scrumptious shoes while peeping the Free People website. Instantly I began to ponder the various outfit opportunities!

Cute everyday boots made of distressed suede in the most perfect and versatile color: Slate. Accentuated by the very best caramel toned leather straps… Pair these Paperback Ankle Boots with some dark denim skinnies, a cozy oversized sweater in a luscious winter cream & add some fabulous, punchy accessories to personalize, as well as brighten up, the look– picture a colorful arm of bracelets, a few gemstone pendants dangling around your neck and small or medium hoop earrings…

Next up: the Desoto Cut Out Oxford. If you feel like keeping it posh while still rocking just the littlest bit of edge, this is the shoe for you! These high-shine flats are sophisticated and polished; an updated nod to the ever classic brogue design. When I saw these beauties my mind immediately thought they would be the perfect pair of Oxfords to wear with a crisp, classic, white button-down blouse & a sleek, sexy black pencil skirt; keeping the accessories simple and refined, with pearl or diamond studs and a few dainty necklaces…

The Lonesome Fringe Ankle Boot & the Perspective Heel are two adventurous style choices! If you are down to wear these fancy feet around town, by all means: GOD SPEED Personally, I find these two pairs to be striking. It’s hard to go unnoticed when your shoes have personality & charm that stands all on their own! With the alluring peep-toe, lace-up sandal I am compelled to throw on a textured mini dress (fab pattern or embellishments, please!) while wearing the bare minimum in accessories; brazen without going overboard… As far as the fringed bootie is concerned, this is a spunky & sassy style choice that is much easier to weave into everyday fashion planning. Wear these boots with leggings, a flowy tunic and make sure to incorporate some Native American inspired accessories: feathers, gems, animal talismans, you get the idea…

No matter what shoe best describes your fashion esthetic & identity, wear them with confidence and pride! You look fabulous, sassy, classy, sexy, spunky, funky & fresh in everything you do, BELIEVE IT!!!!

lots o’ love, StonerChíc

Honoring Guruji & The Lineage

BKS Iyengar & Krishnamacharya

BKS Iyengar & Krishnamacharya

I am a yogi. By no means enlightened, although making a humble attempt to learn more, grow more and be present, more. 

The only way I know how to go about this slow, challenging, fulfilling and yes, sometimes frustrating, process, is to: practice, practice for all is coming… 

Whenever I notice myself falling into the perils of my mind, I search for my breath, I slow down my thoughts and I think…I am not the first, nor will I be the last to go through self created struggle, instead redirect the  inner conversation, notice the beauty around you in the present moment, breathe, let go and m o v e on. This is by no means an easy task, it is time consuming for it must be done everyday; as well as humbling, and at times, painfully revealing. No matter, I feel deep gratitude and eternal blessings to be on this path. This is where I am meant to be, right now, living this experience, learning from this current teaching. In my heart and in my soul I have profound admiration and reverence for Krishnamacharya–also known as the father of modern yoga & BKS Iyengar–one of the foremost teachers in the world who has developed a keen mode of practice that infuses intelligence in the body and calmness in the mind, creating healing for any body that looks to search the self.

This posting is to honor, appreciate and ultimately recognize the efforts of all yogis: past, present & future. Yogis who diligently and genuinely work their shadow places to harness more light, more breath, and more life… May all beings be happy & free.

Lots of Love, SC

Supermodel Seduction

The 90’s were a blast!

Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Linda Evangelista, Kate MossStephanie Seymour: Supermodel Icons at the height of their fashion careers…

Fabulous, stylish & glamorous, these babes epitomized effortless and natural beauty. Not only were each one of these women drop dead gorgeous, they each possessed a unique personality, making them witty, charismatic and loveable.

Seemingly untouchable, these stunning ladies acted as though they were exclusive members of a Pretty Girls Only club… And they were! Together these fashion divas were unstoppable– their faces graced the covers of every fashion magazine of the 90’s; while they all took turns playing dress up for the best fashion designers of the time, walking the catwalk with elegance & poise.

A tribute to the flawless 90’s Supermodel… An era of sexual fashion curiosity, portrayed by the biggest names in Supermodel history!

Fab Faux Finds

This Fall the new trend is eco-friendly, animal-conscious, faux, vegan leather goods…  Leggings, jackets, dresses, vests & more! Thick, rich, and decadent vegan leather gives any outfit instant sex appeal and edge. Think: rock n’ roll chíc mixed in with a little wonder-woman/dominatrix…. The style is smooth, skin-tight, and flattering; showing off all the right curves and giving your confidence an extra peak as you  s t r u t  your stuff!

Some of my favorite, most coveted vegan leather pieces are from Sanctuary Clothing. The maidens of design have come back with yet another sophisticated, modern, LA inspired take on vintage clothing; comprising of elegant and sexy ready-to-wear staple pieces. Effortless and cool, I adore the Sanctuary Mixed Vegan Legging–made in a fabulous combination of vegan leather panels covering the frontside (like chaps! in a good way)… while the backside is a beefy, stable Ponte Knit– which is thick and luxe, providing a beautiful, flattering shape that is sure to keep your lady parts well covered and looking flawless! These leggings are radical– paired with sky-high heels, a sultry blouse and some crystals, this outfit just begs to be worn out on the town!

Additionally, the Rebel Vest by Sanctuary and the Hooded Bomber Jacket by Thread & Supply are fantastic additions to this ever-growing faux leather (insert: vegan!) trend. Worn nicely with  jeans or a dress, these outerwear items are perfect. The Rebel Vest has zippers and snap closures that give you instant pop, rock glam, while the Hooded Bomber Jacket is another wonderful design: casual and urban. A great look for Fall, the jacket and vest can be worn in the daytime with denim and a simple tee, or for nigh time fun with a sexy black dress.

Below you will find these items styled to perfection, providing just the right amount of fashion creativity & inspiration… Dare to try something new, it may suit you!

Be bold, be beautiful, be different, be YOU! Hugs & Kisses, StonerChíc

Shivers & Goosebumps

Every once in a while a band comes along that BLOWS. YOUR. MIND… & SOUL.  Efterklang is one of those bands!

A Danish group–based in Berlin–this dynamic 3-man collaboration crafts musical magic… Cool synths, heavy bass beats, horns, and beautiful yet eerie vocals, Efterklang is a unique band with an original sound. When performing live the band grows to include more musical talent than should be legal! Here, I have included a short video featuring a live radio performance in Vienna where their songs Between The Walls, Black Summer & The Ghost are rendered beautifully and majestically… Luxurious builds, haunting harmonies & brassy undertones… Enjoy!!

Peace, Love & Music, SC

Hat Head

Hats! Hats! Hats!

I LOVE Hats!

Fun, stylish, sexy, mysterious, hipster, chic, and the list goes on…

Wear them with dresses, skirts, jeans or trousers, this bold fashion accessory adds glamour to any outfit…

No better companion for textured, cozy sweaters or layered jewels, hats also look effortless with simple looks: dark denim & a white tee or your favorite sexy black dress…

Step out of your comfort zone and try a hat on with your next outfit! Once you find the one that fits your style and feels good on you, there is no holding back… Have fun, get creative and dare to be confident & sassy!!

I have chosen a series of pictures that combines various fashion stylings, all paired with the simple and refined HAT.
