The Best Runway Looks from Milan Fashion Week

October 28, 2020

It’s hard to believe that Spring/Summer 2021 looks have hit the runway. With the year coming to an end, it’s a great time to look forward to inspiring looks for a more hopeful, positive end of year. If there’s anything that 2020 has taught us, it’s that we are resilient, and stronger together.

This year’s challenges have made us really reflect on the choices we made from every aspect: socially, financially and fashionably. Many designers were thoughtful about the obstacles we’ve all faced together this year when designing their Ready to Wear Collections for SS21. Some featured elevated pieces with a relaxed ease, and others, more dreamy, voluminous silhouettes, alluding to a hopeful, positive outlook to our social culture for the future, so that when we are all able to enjoy a night of socializing, we’ll be dressed better than ever before. I’m thrilled to be sharing the best runway looks from Milan Fashion Week in today’s blog post.

Top Skincare Products for a Healthy Complexion and Glow

May 4, 2020

For a really long time, I envied all the women with a flawless complexion and gorgeous natural glow to their skin. It is something I have wanted my whole teenage to adult life, but I was long before I made it a priority. About 5 years ago, I moved to Santa Monica, Los Angeles and had started suffering from massive breakouts. While I had some breakouts in the past, they were minor in comparison.
