From London With Love

Arguably the second most iconic family in Britain right after The Windsors are the Beckhams. They have had an eventful couple of days as Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) was named entrepreneur of the year and Romeo was featured as the face of the most recent Burberry campaign named “From London With Love” which was inspired by inspired by “the golden age of romantic musicals”. It is breath taking to see an iconic brand with so much heritage presenting to us a short film that just fills us with emotion.

P.S. Victoria and David when are we signing my adoption papers?


I don’t know why I haven’t blogged about this before. (Insert slamming my head) I have to actually keep up with my blog I cant keep work taking over like this. Hopefully the next two days will put me back on track.
Well let’s go back in time and talk about the second day of Milan Men’s Fashion Week.
After being able to access the runway shows the day before we decided to try to get into the other shows as well. We ended up going to Ports as well as Etro. The first show we went to was Ports and trust me it was a spectacular day, Ports’ venue was just magical. A small show room that is pure Italian that created this couturier ambiance.
After Ports we decided to go test our luck with going to Gucci, but of course it was tight as Fort Knox and there was no way to enter but luckily I got to meet Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist.
After the show started we decided to head to the next fashion show event, Etro. We got there early and waited and during the show we saw Anna Dello Russo again and Franca Sozzani. The Etro fashion show was just pure genius, I loved every moment of it as well as sending a signal as they are a multi-generational brand where both old and young models went down the runway together. Sending the message that they are still relevant to the consumers no matter what their ages are.
And like that we ended fashion week, as we had to catch up on so much work we didn’t do during these two days.
You can find the pictures below and stay posted so I can update you about my trip to Verona, discuss the couture shows, and the random people I meet in my life. I hope you enjoy the images!

Happy 4th of July!

Yesterday I had to wear red, white and blue but I had to add the cowboy hat, I couldn’t be more American. Yesterday was a really long and busy day but the good thing about it was that I got to catch up with a couple of friends. At first, I met up with two friends around The Washington National Cathedral we went out for lunch and then walked around.Then later on in the day I met with two other friends and we ended up going to The Kennedy Center to watch the fireworks.

The cowboy hat I bought when I was in Dallas, TX visiting my aunt, Shirt is from Joe’s Jeans, Shorts are from Armani, Sunglasses by Burberry, and the loafers are by Barney’s

Burberry Prorsum – Fall 2013

What I loved about this collection is how they used the plastic/PVC material to create some of their looks, you can see it in coats, skirts, dresses and shirts. Take a look at my favorite pieces from the collection:
