Fashion and Flattery: Donna Morgan Fall 2012 Collection

Donna Morgan continues to deliver fashionable and flattering womenswear for the chic urban woman. The Donna Morgan Fall 2012 Collection features looks ranging from bold colors and prints to subtle and muted tones. Classic silhouettes such as wrap dresses, sheaths, maxis delight in brilliant colors and playful prints. As with all Donna Morgan’s dresses, much attention is focused on a great fit and flattering of a woman’s natural curves.

Standout looks from the Donna Morgan Fall 2012 Collection include the very elegant color block Peplum dress, a colorful 60’s-inspired sheath with Nehru collar and a very sophisticated muted gold faux wrap dress. The collection also focuses on lots of details, from strategically placed shirring, sweet peter pan collars, cap sleeves, lace inserts, etc.

Whether you go for a style that’s more curve hugging or a more relaxed silhouette, the Donna Morgan Fall 2012 Collection will not disappoint you. We loved every single look from this collection and we know you will as well. The range of options the collection offers to the stylish fashionista is stunning. We promise you won’t find a look that you won’t love. We are and will continue to drool over our favorites. Do you ladies see some Donna Morgan looks you’d love to add to your wardrobe? Which items from the Donna Morgan Fall 2012 Collection is your favorite look?

American Eagle Summer 2012 Collection

For Summer 2012, American Eagle continues to bring bold colors, soft feminine styles and lively patterns. The American Eagle Summer 2012 Collection features fun and flirty looks that capture the exciting and carefree days of summer. Expect to see lots of girly styles, silhouettes and fabrics, light layering, mixing of prints and colors – not a surprise since this summer’s collection is inspired by the theme “live loud” and the Coachella Music Festival.

Crocheted and lace dresses were belted, shorts were paired with wide knit tops, thin spaghetti strap crop tops and crocheted tops; Rompers were seen in floral prints, summer scarves in various prints, colors and lengths were paired with dresses, shorts, etc, lacy tank tops in bright colors, floppy wide brimmed hats were paired with just about everything (a must have sun-shielding accessory for women at Coachella); relaxed silhouettes, fun looks and playful colors are the essences of this collection and I’m sure we will see many pieces from this collection throughout the summer. One of my favorite looks from the collection wasn’t a piece, it was the fact that the fun graphic prints were seen in shorts, tops and accessories.

Avon Launches Advance Techniques Professional Hair Color Collection

I’ve stated how many times that I love and not afraid of color – that goes for all color, not just in clothing, shoes, and accessories but in hair as well. I may not keep my hair short (I don’t think I have the right face shape for it) but I do love to color it. I’ve been honey blonde, chocolate brown, a ravishing redhead, a devilish blue-black and several colors in between – even now I’m sporting a color called chocolate cherry, so when I got the invitation to get familiar with Avon’s new Advance Techniques Hair Color Collection with the amazing Lorri Goddard, Celebrity Colorist and Avon’s new and first-ever Global Hair Color Expert. I was beyond ecstatic to attend and not ashamed to say, the first to arrive.

This is Avon’s first hair color launch in the US and they have partnered with Lorri to help empower women to achieve healthy, salon-beautiful hair at home. The Advance Techniques Hair Color Collection is a complete hair color system that equalizes porous damaged hair prior to coloring for even, true application and lasting results. The three-step system primes (a pre-treatment mends damaged, porous areas), colors and treats (with Shea Butter and Lock-In Technology) hair to deliver rich, radiant healthy looking color that provides 100% gray coverage. The collection includes 25 hair color shades (10 blondes, 4 reds, 9 brunette and 2 black shades)

We got some amazing tips from Lorri on how to select the correct shade (she advises that you go no more than 3 levels darker and 2 to 3 levels lighter than your natural/uncolored shade), properly color our hair at home (something that was always a battle for me with this thick hair of mine), and tips to help maintain our color – which includes getting your hands on a great product from Avon – Avon Advance Techniques Color Protection Lock-In Treatment, a product she uses on her celebrity clients

Moliabal Milano Luxury Hair Accessories

Everyone who knows me can hardly find an instance where I’m not wearing a headband (yes I wore them before they were as fashionable as they are now) and I’m always on the lookout for new fashionable hair accessories so when I was introduced the the very chic collection of luxury hair accessories from Moliabal Milano, I instantly fell in love.

Founded/designed by Monica Masini, the chic Moliabal Milano line of hair accessories, whose name is a combination of the first two letters of hers and her friends first names – Licia, Abele and Alberto – was established when Monica couldn’t find anything exciting in hair accessories. Deciding it was time to create her hair ornament collection, she became focused on finding new materials and inspirations from everything she saw around her, thus creating the first Italian line completely dedicated to luxury hair accessories.


Moliabal Milano offers many styles of French pins, snap pins, ponytail holders, combs, claws which retail between $10.00 – $50.00 each. The line features products made of silk, cotton, beads and chiffon, etc. The concept of the entirely Black & White Collection is “easy chic and classic style”. This concept gives the line the ability to satisfy women of all ages, making it perfect for every occasion, day or night. Each item is presented and sold in a branded organza bag (pictured above) which comes in three sizes – small, medium and large, matching the size of the accessories.

A self proclaimed perfectionist, Monica notes that she has re-made a sample 10 times until she found it perfect, sometimes driving her suppliers crazy but it’s all done in the name of her passion and love of her brand. Monica herself has a very rich history in fragrance and private label accessories. From the age of five, she was travelling around the world with her father, a distributor of cosmetic brands and fragrances in the Italian market.
