Got the Look? : Awards Season Style

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.)


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!


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.


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.


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!

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!


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!

If you’re looking for something to wear to a formal or semi-formal event, definitely contact CreativPR, they will not steer you wrong with these talented fashion and jewelry designers on their roster.  For more details on setting up an appointment, click on this link for details.

Couture from the Runway floor!


(Philly Fashion Week fall ’13, Bishme R. Cromartie designs)

Featured above is one of the beautiful avant garde designs from fashion designer, Bishme R. Cromartie. Bishme’s intriguing designs have been featured in Vogue magazine and in other top fashion publications. He has had the opportunity to show his work in shows in L.A. and in the illustrious New York Fashion week.

Bishme is a young man, age 22, from Maryland. He learned to sew as a young boy from his aunt. Today, at this young and tender age, Bishme is making some major accomplishments.

Age and resources should never be an issue when it comes to accomplishing goals. You can be young or old, the fact that you are still alive is a testament to the fact that you can still do amazing things in this world! I just found out about Bishme R. Cromartie a year ago, and he has truly grown and perfected his work.

His couture pieces are full of geometric shapes and designs that a woman can feel ‘haute’ in.

Dark Pasts and Future Lights


I’ve been there already….


So why look back? The past is just that….the past, and it’s behind me now.

There are times when we reflect back on life and wonder why we did or didn’t do certain things or why events happened as they did. When it comes down to it, the events of our past are history and there is nothing we can do to change them. A love lost, a job gone, a place to move on….the events of our history are unchangeable.

If some of us could hit the rewind button, we would. I know that for a fact that I would for certain historical events in my life. But the irrefutable truth is that I cannot go back into my past, no matter how hard I try to. So why not live in the present and build for the future, instead of spending valuable time regretting the past?

Since we cannot relive the past and change the facts of our past, then why look forward to go backwards??? The reasonable choice is to move forward with a plan in mind for the future. A plan to build and execute those goals. There really is no time like the present to plan and move forward.

As I move forward….I choose to make wiser decisions and choices that will effect my future, as well as my child’s. In my life, things happened the way they did and I am to the point where I thank God for every bit of it. Because of my past, I am the woman I am today and much stronger than ever, thanks to God and the love of family and honest friends.

I could’ve keeled over….but God lifted me up and strengthened to what I am now becoming. So….don’t regret the past. Be thankful for the unique experiences that you have encountered that make you, you. Don’t let hurtful past events take you out, rather hold tight and be strengthened to move forward. Let it be your ammunition to keep pushing and be diligent towards reaching your goals.

Fear of Landing….


Unlike this runway look from “Birds” by Catalin Botazeau from NY Couture Fashion week fall ’13….some of us have a fear of landing.

When various circumstances and situations arise in our lives, we react out of survival. Whatever event happens that calls for a change, we fly high seeking for that change. Sometimes….we may go back and jeopardize our survival….but if we are smart enough, we take the opportunity to fly off when it arises again.

So when we do fly away from events that are no longer helpful to us….seeking change….the process seems daunting. When we do finally find the answer, we are sometimes afraid to move forward. This fear can be paralyzing or we can choose to operate against it and move forward to the unknown.

Although the unknown seems like a scary place….it can actually be the the remedy for a situation. We cannot allow fear to paralyze us…rather we need to pull on the strength that God gives us and move forward into our blessing. For we do not know when the opportunity will present itself again.

So be like the bird in the picture above and fly across the runway of life and land for your pose. Because where you are going and moving forward into….will be fabulous. Continue to move forward and remain hopeful for the unknown in your future.

Change is Evident

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


(“Birds” by Catelin Botazeau NY Couture Fashion week fall 2013.)


………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 😉
