Lillie Couture x Fall 2014 Collection

Image

On Friday, February 7th, Latasha Hall, the talented fashion designer behind the fabulous line “Lillie Couture Designs“, previewed her fall 2014 collection at W Studios in Philadelphia, PA.  The line debuted a glamorous collection of jumpsuits, dresses, with details of gold and ruffles which made each look stand out on the runway.  The theme of the evening was “Welcome to Wonderland”, and truly the collection was a wonderland of chic fashion for today’s modern woman.

I love the detail in the beaded golden bodice and the flow of the floor length gown.

Image

This chic red ruffled top jumpsuit is absolutely fabulous!  I would love to pair this with a white blazer and wear it to the office during spring, then drop the blazer and head on over to happy hour in my heels!  The gold accents add the perfect touch to this look while keeping the collection cohesive.

This ruffled black dress and gold beading is stunning!

This golden gown is glamorous and full of amazing details!

Image

I love the simplicity of this white long sleeved gown paired with a very intricate and couture shoulder piece, this look captures your attention with elegance and grace.

The pieces in this collection are chic, elegant, and most certainly fabulous.  I love the entire collection, however my personal favorite is the red jumpsuit!  The gold accents throughout the line add the perfect touch to each piece.  The miniature hats and face masks bring the fantasy to the collection from the theme “Welcome to Wonderland.”  Truly, as you can see from the photo recap, this was a wonderland in fashion.

It’s Awards season and all the stars on the red carpet are setting trends and style standards.  While it’s Awards season, do you have your look?  Galas, formal events, and Valentine’s Day are just right around the corner.  Check out some of the designers represented by CreativPR below to check out their lines and find out below how to contact them to schedule your personal fitting today.  You can look just as good as the stars in Hollywood with these gorgeous looks from the designers shown below!  (All images are property of CreativPR.)

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!

Change is Evident

Much like the fashions and styles of the runway…..

………life is always changing.

As I look back over the years, I am amazed by the changes that have I have encountered. From being a timid college student, to being a social butterfly. From being overly religious, to finding a balance in life. From being fearful that I wouldn’t graduate from college to being a college alumni. From being totally single to becoming a fulfilled full time mom, who also works full time.

It feels like yesterday when I was 16 and endured my first heart break. Or being proud that I was a continuous honor roll student. I remember the childhood home that my younger brother and I grew up in and all the memories that we shared. Life seems to be just that….full of memories made and new memories to make.

Every time that I look up….it seems as if another relationship, another career, another home, another way of life is changing. Well….what can we do but embrace the changes that come our way? Some changes are good…others are not….and some seemingly good changes can be tough in the beginning. Well as for me….all I can do is trust God during these changes and have a positive attitude.

Change will come….whether we like it or not….and sometimes it’s for our best in life….even if we do not see that in the beginning. God reveals everything in time.

A change can save your life, change your perspective, and even humble you. I’ve experienced change in all three of those areas in my life recently. I will not deny the change that has come, instead I am embracing it and producing and moving forward everyday.

As always….thanks for stopping by 😉
