Fran Drescher “The Nanny” is Making a Comeback with Cardi B’s Help

Written by Samantha Skinner

Many of the outfits that you would find in the 90’s television show, The Nanny, are starting to come out in the clothing catalogs for this year. Those tight leopard prints and the changes that might have seemed long gone, are back to stay.

Micro-mini skirts and blazers are also a must-have, but who is behind this force when it comes to the fashion industry and those changes being made? Who is the one that is fueling the fire and bringing the 90’s Nanny look back?

While Fran’s wardrobe seems to have been hitting the catalogs, even the 90’s has brought back some of the old favorites on the runway. Versace dug up a bright yellow plaid outfit that seemed to get the attention of everyone involved.

Speaking with Cardi B, there plans to be a lot more going on behind the scenes. Not only with the outfits that are going to be shown off, but in a reboot of the series.

Many think that Cardi B would be “fine” as Fran’s daughter, though this is just speculation, though some of us cannot wait to see if this mix up is going to happen.

Don’t you worry though, Cardi B and Fran are going to dress for success if it does, and Cardi will make sure that there are no mishaps in the dressing room of what should and should not be on the set. Since they both have pretty awesome fashion sense.

There is a lot more to this story, one that is developing, but for the excitement of the Nanny in all of us 90’s lovers, you can be sure that the styles are still going to be “to die fah, ladies!”

It might just be the comeback sitcom on television that we have all been waiting for!

Modern Muslim Women’s Fashion on Display at San Francisco Museum

Those that are always curious to know what the fashions around the world are like can benefit from seeing what is being offered inside one San Francisco fashion museum. One of the biggest pieces of the fashion that is worn by these women is the head covering that they put on. Covering almost everything but their eyes, it is something that is thought of as restricting, but it does not have to be for those women that prefer to wear it.

This new exhibition shows that these women can express themselves with the right fashion, while also being able to conform to the standards that they want to uphold.

Dolce and Gabbana have some of the most beautiful scarves and when a woman wants to pair one of these with her outfit, she can do this to cover her hair and face. Adding a beautiful hood to a dress is also easily done. Going with lighter colors, yellows, roses, champagnes, can also bring more light to their outfit. There is no restriction on what she is able to do when customizing the outfit, she puts on. She can still feel beautiful, which is what the display aims to show those that come out to see it.

Being shown as the “Contemporary Muslim Fashions” it is going to show off around 80 different ensembles that come from 60 designers. They have put together something really special for those that want to either come see the ways they can show off their fashion, or just those interested in learning more.

Some of the designers are from the countries where these fashions are actually worn, which makes them more ideal for those that want to wear something beautiful, but also that follows the law and rules of their religion.

Muslim women should feel beautiful and not targeted. With many options being put on display, they have something to look forward too.

 

Stella McCartney Is Back At It and Right Back to Her Roots

Written by Samantha Skinner

Presenting her first runway show of the year after having complete control of her design house, she is back being who she is and what she is known for. This is all very good for the fashion world, or those that don’t mind going fur-free.

After buying out 50 percent of the stake that was once held by the luxury giant, Kering, she is now the only owner of her design house and label and is ready to make a change in the world of fashion, runway by runway.

Going back to her roots and sparking her independence as a designer, she has been showing off those moves that were once being held back. She can now freely let everyone know how she feels and one of the biggest issues on the table currently is the use of animal hides and furs in fashion.

She feels like they are so close and so many designers have banned with her on this. However, not everyone has taken the full leap and this is where she is going to come in and hopefully change their minds and make them move forward.

As the runway was bold, fresh and washed away those colors that might have been dragging everyone else down, she was able to make a change in the way that she strutted those models down.

Being able to be a designer is something that empowers her. Now that she has complete control over everything that is done in the powerhouse of the company. Being able to make decisions, but also getting other designers to go along with her can prove to be one of the best moves she has done.

Everyone is interested to see where this designer house is going to go. Off or on label, the activists for animal rights are happy to have her onboard.

Michael Kors Obtains Versace for a Small Fortune

Its official! Everyone thought it wasn’t going to happen, but it did and now everyone cannot stop talking about it!

Michael Kors Holdings Limited has officially announced that they purchased Versace. Held by the late Gianni Versace’s sister, Donatella Versace, it was purchased for over $2 billion.

Following the merger, Michael Kors Holding will be changing their name to Capri Holdings Limited.

This is a big and very exciting moment for everyone involved, even Versace. In a statement, Donatella Versace said, “It has been more than 20 years since I took over the company along with my brother Santo and daughter Allegra. I am proud that Versace remains very strong in both fashion and modern culture. Versace is not only synonymous with its iconic and unmistakable style, but with being inclusive and embracing diversity, as well as empowering people to express themselves. Santo, Allegra, and I recognize that this next step will allow Versace to reach its full potential.”

For fans that are unsure of what the future of Versace would hold or what would come next with the company, they are keeping many of the previous Versace owners, such as Donatella on board as designers and their CEO, Jonathon Akeroyd. They want to grow and build and paired with Michael Kors, they have a better chance at doing that.

John Idol, the CEO of Capri Holdings Limited is excited about this merger and is allowing Versace a lot of control to corner the market and provide them with a way to have the market unrivaled with this new brand that is going to hit the ground running and take off.

Versace is still a brand name that so many know and love, but with the merger, everyone can get to know and love another brand, that is set to be as good, if not better, than the Versace fashion.

Choosing a Spring Dress That is Perfect For You!

Written by Samantha Skinner

Shopping for a spring dress might seem simple. You know what you like and what you don’t, but what if you could find something that completely made you stand out? What if you could find something that fit you in all the right places and also made you feel confident to wear it, as well?

We have so many tips and tricks when it comes to fashion so when you go to choose something from the shelves, consider these tips and also consider what it is that you like. Even though those runways are blazing with hot new fashions, always make sure to choose something you are comfortable wearing!

The Skinny on Stripes

If you feel that you have a little more to love, then stripes are going to be your best friend. Not only are you going to be able to feel good in what you’re wearing, but you’re able to know you have what it takes to rock that look, as well. This is something that not everyone is able to do. However, throw it on, see if it is for you and rock it!

The Neckline Matters

If you are a bit on the busty side, then you want to stay away from extremely plunging necklines. You might lose…yourself in them. You want to wear something that is flattering so go with a neckline that is higher up, but also curve skimming and not clingy in that area. This will help not only make your bust seem more proportioned, but it shapes the body better.

For Those Curvy Mama’s Out There!

If you’re curvy then you want to wear something that is going to really make your waist stand out. Choosing a comfortable spandex-made dress that has a belt around the waist or another type of tie can really help out those curves and get you the looks that you want and need. Unlike some of the other options out there, being curvy is not something you have to hide with a bag – wear a belt and make it look classy!

Small Bust – No Problem

When you have a smaller bust, you don’t have to worry about a higher neckline as much. You can easily go with something that plunges and gives the illusion of a bit more. You want something that cinches cutely at the waist, but also flows freely towards the bottom. This is going to give the illusion of having more curves.

If you want a cute spring dress, then try on something that is ideal for your body type. You don’t have to worry about not being able to wear something worth wearing, and that looks cute! The choice of dress you go with is going to look good since you picked it out!

 

Spring Has Sprung! The Top Must-Have Fashion Trends 2018

Written by Samantha Skinner

Spring time is upon us and with it comes many different fashion trends that follow. When it comes to this, you want to make sure that you’re also the best dressed one showing up to the party, as well.

Here are some of the best and top must-have fashion trends for the year so you can stay one step further when it comes to being fashionable and chic.

The 80’s are Coming Back
You probably didn’t see that one coming, but the 80’s are making a comeback when it comes to the spring fashion trends you’re likely to see. Think wide shoulders, suede and cinched waists that follow. The 80’s had some pretty cool things with it, so you can expect to come up with something unique and original with many of the fashions.

Sneakers, Sneakers, Sneakers
We all love a good game and now you can wear your sneakers with just about anything that you’re wearing for the day. You can benefit from a good look with the sneakers and your jeans, or sneakers and that skirt and be daring when you pair them with a cute tennis dress.

Large Belts
Large belts are also in fashion and with them comes the need to wear them with bright colors and beautifully large buckles. They can be paired with a long shirt, jeans, a dress or anything else that you can think of.

Pencil Skirts
Pencil skirts are back by popular demand this spring, though they really didn’t lose out on anything before. They’re still just as beautiful as ever when it comes to wearing them out to a party or to a business meeting, you can have both.

Sportswear
Sportswear is something that is not only comfortable, but also fashionable. It is turning into a fashion statement come spring time. The jumpers, track suits and more are there to use when it comes to putting them on and heading out for a good time when the weather warms up a bit more.

Denim, Denim and Even More Denim
If you thought that denim was in back then, just look at it now! This season many of the denim made jeans, dresses, skirts and more are going to have denim on denim with them. This is a big leap of faith since we are unsure of how the world is going to take this denim craze once again.

Of course, you could also go with something personalized, something specifically designed for you and one of a kind with Creationz From a Dove, so you will stand out this spring and look beautiful.

Happy Spring!

How To Clean Your Closet and Make Money with Poshmark and Mercari

Written by Aysha Chaudhry

As the New Year approaches, a lot of us are tempted to re-vamp things in our life that we’ve grown tired of. That may include our beauty routine, our exercise regimen, and even our wardrobe. However, it can be difficult when our wallets are tight, especially right after all of the spending that comes with the holidays.

A great way to make some spare money and to free up space in your closet simulateneously is to use a re-sale app like Poshmark or Mercari. These apps allow you to buy and sell gently-used clothing for great prices. So those high heels you bought for last year’s holiday party and haven’t worn since? Sell ‘em.

A tip for getting the best bang for your buck: While the buyer pays for shipping, you are responsible for extra costs for the shipping materials, etc. If you are planning on selling a lot of items, consider buying silver shipping bags in bulk (Amazon has some great options) so that you aren’t paying so much when you get to the post office.
