Shhhh…Designing Exclusive Pieces for XO, Avery

wpid-photogrid_1400259842657.jpg

This is what I’ve been working on for XO, Avery. I’ve started designing interesting and exclusive neck pieces beyond the jewelry line. These are created for the woman who wants to change the look of her favorite LBD or just wants to be chic and fabulous. I saw Barbara Walters’ last show on The View, and wouldn’t you know it, two women showed up with the same dress on stage. UGH! A super easy fix is to always have a Plan B…so you don’t look like an A and turn into a B ;)  These pieces can be your “A” Game, or a Plan B, if necessary. I only make one-of-a-kind, so no one will ask….”who wore it better?”.

These are not online for sale at this time. If you would like to inquire about this line, please email me at:  XOAveryDesigns@gmail.com

XO, Avery    Exclusive Jewelry and Accessories

“Couture statement pieces for those who strut life’s runway” ~ Avery.

The above collage is a small taste of what’s happening in my new online store. I design and create everything in my collection, and it is all one-of-a-kind. I like to mix it up with Vintage and new, reuse and repurpose when I can, and keep in mind the unique shapes and styles of my clients. I want the XO, Avery line to be an extension of my fashion styling business. Those who wear it will feel special, look proportionate and dynamic, and won’t see the look on anyone else!

First, I introduce jewelry. Take a sneak peek at:

 http://XOAvery.etsy.com   and see these pieces (and more) in living color.

The Accessories debut is coming soon, along with my Private Vintage Collection!

Enjoy!

XO, Avery

Oscar Best Dressed 2014

wpid-PhotoGrid_1393860287627.jpg

Three things I like in a gown. Details, drama, and dreaminess.

There were sooooo many great dresses last night, I really must applaud the ladies. I didn’t see any major fugly missteps. Amazing! Some don’t photograph as well as others to show the stunning detail work, but you get the gist.

These are some of my top favorites and honestly, many more that were worthy of a photo. At this point, there are so many Best Dressed lists and commentators and panels and talks on TV, blogs, Social Media. Ugh. I’m already over it myself!

If I were to tweak anything, I would have taken that pink chiffon wrap off of Lady Gaga. The dress was everything and that wasn’t needed. You look fab, Gaga!

Cheers to all the Beauties!

P.S. I would have worn Kate Hudson’s Versace gown in a heartbeat. Old Hollywood glam. Perfection head to toe.

Kristin Chenowith in Cavalli, Jennifer Lawrence in Dior, Lady Gaga in Versace, Lupita Nyong’o in custom Prada, Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive, Charlize Theron in Dior.

Balmain FW2014 Brilliance

wpid-PhotoGrid_1393542686518.jpgwpid-PhotoGrid_1393542739769.jpgwpid-PhotoGrid_1393542952829.jpgwpid-PhotoGrid_1393543031976.jpg

Balmain and Olivier Rousteing get it right again with their FW2014 collection, Jungle Fever, during Paris Fashion Week. What I adore about Balmain is the consistent eye for detail, the belted and nipped in waists, the femininity with an edge, and substantial designs. You never feel that Olivier phones it in, like some other top design houses I’ve seen this season. I want to see fine pieces of art, not just fabric flung over hangers with a heartbeat. These pieces (a few of the 46 looks) were some of my favorites.

Whether hardcore, fun and funky or outright beaming chic, Balmain hits the high notes and take you to places that make you breathe heavy and moan with excitement.

MAGNIFIQUE!

Men, Is Your Shoe Game Tight and Right?

wpid-PhotoGrid_1391522724770.jpg

Fellas, How’s your shoe game? Like it or not, women  do check out your shoes. Why? They speak volumes! Have you ever heard the phrase, “Its in the details”? It most certainly is, and that includes dressing. Specifically, footwear. This is where so many men fall down, image-wise. Maybe you need a shoe makeover.

My pet peeve is a guy wearing athletic performance shoes with his jeans. Add insult to injury, they aren’t clean or in good shape! Shoes meant for exercising have no place outside of the gym or off the playing field. Unless you’re wearing track pants or silky basketball shorts, leave the running and crosstrainer shoes at home. Basically, if you sweat in them, that’s disgusting and don’t wear them anywhere else. Yes, there are “athletic” shoes that crossover into fashion. There is a fine line and you need to know the difference. That’s why you need me!

Most men hate shopping, so let me streamline this for you. Beyond athletic shoes, there are 3 main categories of shoes you need in your shoe wardrobe with a plethora of levels beyond that, if you dare.

#1. The sporty fun shoe. A very casual shoe to wear with jeans and relaxed clothing. Made of canvas, suede, or leather material and can be funky or cool. A step above the athletic shoe. Great for running errands, stopping for coffee, a beer with the guys, or even….jeans, red Chucks, shirt, tie and a jacket to an informal dinner. Uber casual vibe.

#2. The driving shoe, loafer, or casual boot. A heavy tread sole, streamlined upper, or smooth chic. These are perfect for upping your casual game. They are super comfortable and look amazing.

#3. Dress shoes. Figure out your style. If you prefer trendy, like sleek European, or keeping it classic, there is a dress shoe for any type man. These are a necessity even if you want to fight it.  Wear with dress pants, a suit, or tux. Grown man attire.

See, wasn’t that easy?!

To finish, the most important point after you have your shoes, is to maintain them. Keep them clean, keep them shined, keep them in good condition. Make that a part of the daily routine of getting dressed. Whether it be work related or social, your shoes can make your break your image, so why not protect it?

Tip: Your shoes are a reflection of how you tend to other areas of your being. The ladies are watching ;)

All above shoes featured are to be used as a style guide, these are available at  http://zappos.com
