Duke & Winston x Valentine’s Day Specials

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner…or rather right at the end of the week!  Ladies, I know that we love to get our flowers, chocolates, and jewelry…but what about the men in our life?  Well, Duke & Winston is having a great sale going on right now up until Valentine’s Day- 25% off of all items that are red, white, and pink in store and online.  Duke & Winston has a lot of great items in store for the men in your life from ties to tees to baseball caps, they have it all!  They even have the cutest dog hoodies for your pets!  In all this cold and snow…it’s nice to have something for your pet to snuggle up in when they go outside.  I had the opportunity to stop by their store in the Northern Liberties section in Philadelphia, PA and I was able to take a few product shots to share with you.  They really have a great selection of t-shirts, sweaters, polos, long sleeve tees, baseball caps, beach tanks, dog hoodies, ties, and more in store!

These silk ties will complete your man’s look for your special night on the town for Valentine’s Day!

All the tees at D &W are definitely dope and a must have for any man’s wardrobe.

I love their baseball caps with the D & W shield and the embroidery of Duke on the lower picture is adorable!  I think I want one too lol!

Image

I love this long sleeved red and white tee and the quote on it “Sincerity- Use no hurtful deceit, think innocently and justly.”  Ah if we all lived by these words…as you can see with D &W…not only are you getting dope clothing, but also positive messages through the brand.

These dog hoodies are just adorable!  The hot pink and red hooded sweatshirts for the doggies are on sale as well!  They are too cute and they come in smaller and larger sizes, depending on the size of your furry friend.

This was just a snippet of what D &W has on sale for Valentine’s Day, for a full listing of items be sure to check out their site or stop by the store!

Yvette

These haute couture looks in the Yvette collection are simply fabulous with the color palette ranging from deep dark fall colors to pastel.  The embellishments are just right on every look!

O'Blanc

The O’Blanc collection is reminiscent of classic looks, A-line, and sheath.  These looks drape perfectly and every body type can find a style to fit them on the red carpet.  I love the use of the classic pan-tone colors and bold hues.  Anybody looking to be classic Hollywood chic can’t go wrong with this collection.

Lum

The Lum collection is very reminiscent of old Hollywood, the looks remind me of old films such as Cleopatra, and the looks of actresses Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly.  These looks seem as though their inspiration has derived from there and they are full of classic and strong lines and structures.

DR

Drenusha Xharra brings the glam with these sleek metallic looks, soft lace, and a golden yellow glow in the line.  If you’re looking to be chic and modern, this is the way to go.  My fave look is #84, it’s fabulous…you can wear this on the red carpet and mix and match the pieces for a night on the town. You can’t go wrong with #84 or any of these looks!

AdolfoSanchez (Numbered at 1) 900px

Adolfo Sanchez’s collection is mesmerizing.  I love the soft teals, white, the entire palette!  I especially love the way that this collection builds up from modern/ chic to bring the drama with couture on the last picture #22.  The model is especially fierce, rockin’ her golden fro mohawk!  I love it!  The designers concept is clear and striking from onset to finish and this collection speaks volumes.  If you’re looking for anything bold, eye catching, dramatic, couture, or fabulous then you’ve found it all in this collection!

CHANDRA

After you’ve chosen one of the looks from above, take the time to style it with one of these fabulous pieces from Chandra Jewelry.  In one of my older posts, Walk the Talk Event, I had the opportunity to meet one of the designers behind Chandra Jewelry and view their beautiful collection of accessories.  Trust me, you cannot go wrong with one of these pieces!  They are fantastic!

Holiday Shopping x Brand Bazaar at the Trocadero

This past Saturday, after going to the Macy’s light show in Center City, Philadelphia, baby girl and I stopped by the Brand Bazaar, sponsored by Heineken that was happening at the Trocadero theater.  There were many different local brands at this event to represent Philly and they did it well.

Out of all the brands that were in attendance, I was excited about meeting the owner of this one and speaking to him for a few minutes. The brand Kings Rule Together is one that I have admired for sometime now and it was great meeting the creator of the brand, Curran.  He is humble and cool, and had no problem having a few words with me.  I love his line of shirts and what they stand for.

Image

Image

Duke & Winston had plenty of inventory from their brand that was selling quickly to guests who were in attendance.  I love their vintage/ preppy style of clothing for men.

Image

Image

Local artist Ivben Taqiy had a variety of sweatshirts on sale that he personally painted and screen printed himself.

Image

Super Fly Mom line of t-shirts is a super fly line for moms and those who appreciate their hard working super fly moms!

Image

I love this line of t-shirts!  The same creator of the line also has a brand for musicians entitled “I am a musician.”

Weirdo Clothing line definitely caught my eye with their innovative logo and dope clothing designs.  I love their members only jacket!

I love the designs that Babylon Cartel used in their line of intriguing items.  They have hats made from ostrich leather too!

Image

Image

Image

I really enjoyed the creativity behind this brand, NativHype with the use of the teepee to promote and make their brand the center stage at this event.

Image

I love the concept behind the brand NativHype, it’s not about them being Native American but rather being native to their home city, Philly.

Image

NATRL BORN HEARTBRKERS had a bold line of t-shirts and sweats with children sizes available too!

Image

Live Girls was in the house vending their one of a kind vintage wear in the building.

These one of a kind candles smelled so fragrant!  The ladies of “Candelights” make each of these beautiful candles by hand!

Charmed in the City

Remember the Pandora bracelets that all the major fine jeweler retailers carried?  Well, here’s one better, a bracelet similar to that style but represents the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia.  City Charm, based in Reading, PA, has created seven charms in their line that are significant to the city of Philadelphia.  The charms are readily available and will make great gifts for the holidays.  Even if you’re not from Philly, these charms still carry a great deal of history and they’re stylish.  With seven charms to choose from, there’s a style for everyone. 

If you’re interested in purchasing these for some stylish arm candy, you can visit the Pennsylvania General store, which carries all seven charms at their two locations in the city at Reading Terminal Market, located at the intersection of 11th & Market sts. in Center City, Philadelphia.  Their other location, which is their holiday store is located at 8518 Germantown Ave, in Chestnut Hill, PA.  The best part about shopping with this brand and supporting a local business is that they will donate ten percent of all proceeds to Project H.O.M.E. in Philadelphia, PA.  Project H.O.M.E., is an organization that is actively working to help end homelessness in the city.  The charms are currently selling for $79.99 a piece, and are created with quality and love of this historic city!
