| Love Never Fails |

Happy Valentine's Day      "Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;  does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;  does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;  bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails" (I Corinthians 13:4-8)     Me, being single I used to HATE this day especially if I had to go to work. I can't tell you the amount of Valentines gifts I watched my co -workers receive. An assortment of flowers, candies and balloons. OMG I wanted to throw up! lol BUT thank God that has changed. Yes I'm still single , but my perception...

The Beauty of L’AGENCE

Chic, sophisticated and timeless are the words that I would use to describe L’AGENCE’S F/W 2019 collection. L’AGENCE is a high-end California based women’s wear company that was started in 2008. The brand is available in 300 stores including Bergdorf Goodman, Barney's New York, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom. The brand recently opened a flagship store on Madison Avenue in New York City. During New York Fashion Week (NYFW) I had the wonderful opportunity of sitting down with Mr. Jeffery Rudes the CEO/ Creative Director to discuss his role and what’s next for the brand.     Kia Danielle: How long have you been the CEO of L’AGENCE? Jeff Rudes: I have been the CEO/ Creative Director for a year and a half now. I am...

| Winter Pastels |

For some reason people think you can't wear pastel colors in the winter months. Well that's just NOT true! It's like that old saying “You can't wear white after labor day” That rule is simply outdated and no longer true! The winter months are dreary enough without your wardrobe being dull and boring. It is time to add some excitement to your look by adding pretty pinks, lavenders, mint greens and yellows. I love pastel colors they make me think of a sunny Spring day, and who wouldn’t want to think about that.   If you ever taken a psychology class, you know that colors can affect our mood. Subconsciously of course, but its so true. When we feel upset or...

| Happy 2019!!! This is the year of MORE!!! | You say more of what exactly? | Well more of what God has for you | More peace, joy. love, happiness, success, and most of all more blessings than ever before! | Maybe 2018 was not your year (mine either) as I previously mentioned to you in another post 2018 seemed liked my worst year ever. | So many negative things going on, but I made it through them ALL by the grace of God! | With it being the beginning of the year (day 5 of January) which is significant because the number 5 means grace, and since it's the year of more it means MORE grace than before! | I...

| Hello December |

  "Therefore I will look to the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me." (Micah 7:7 NKJV)   Today is the beginning of a new month and its also my birthday! Honestly this past year has not been the best for me. I have faced challenges and heartache like never before! My faith was tested time and time again, but what I am starting to realize is I am a survivor not a victim. Life has its many challenges this is true, but it is how you overcome those challenges that's what truly matters! To be victorious does not mean you will not go through trials and tribulations it means when you do, you are not defeated by...

Karl Lagerfeld, Jimmy Choo, Versace, Alexander Wang and Enzo just to name a few. On 11/8/18 the highly anticipated collaboration hit the store racks and are currently almost sold out.

NYFW | The Shows | Recap

On 9/5/18 the brand KUR by Sri Lankan designer Kasuni Rathnasuriya kicked off fashion week with their SS19 collection. Simplicity Redefined are the words that I would use to describe this collection. Clean white silhouettes with handmade Dutch and Portuguese lace, A-line skits and crisp cargo pant suits were worn by the models while carrying oversized leather bags. Comfy mules completed the look of the collection which Rathnasuriya named “Compact Traveler.” The collection was a mix of business casual and leisure. Perfect for any women on the go or just staying at home and relaxing. Kur is an authentic women’s ready –to –wear brand that expresses a sense of freedom.
