A Rebecca Minkoff cross body and Ted Baker wallet in lavender and pink, bring on summer!

Accessories - alimackin@gmail.com - April 3, 2017

Spring is officially here, though it may not feel like it at times. But rest assured in another month or so it will be time to finally shed the winter coats, boots and black bags for maxi dresses, sandals and pastels. I bought this bag last year at a Rebecca Minkhoff event I attended through the New City Style Collective.

Spring is officially here, though it may not feel like it at times. But rest assured in another month or so it will be time to finally shed the winter coats, boots and black bags for maxi dresses, sandals and pastels. I bought this bag last year at a Rebecca Minkhoff event I attended through the New York City Style Collective. The event was wonderful; filled with bloggers, influencers, champagne, photo ops and shopping. So of course I did indulge, and I picked up this bag and a lovely bow-tie blouse.

The event was held last fall and this being a spring bag, as you may have guessed it was on sale. I got quite the deal on it. I took this bag with me to Florida and it was perfect for walking around sight seeing and shopping.

as this is a cross body bag it is not huge so right before my trip I bought this pink mini wallet from Ted Baker. And I am so glad I did, an excellent choice for a on the go wallet.

It felt so good to be in the warm sunshine and getting to wear summer clothes and use this oh so chic bag for the first time. I just loved using it. It is easy to open an close, big enough for my phone which I kept in the back slot on the outside of the bag and this is with it being zipped up in this cat pouch which I got in Paris last fall, plus a wallet, sunnies and this mini shine spray from Oribe.

And as this is a cross body bag it is not huge so right before my trip I bought this pink mini wallet from Ted Baker. And I am so glad I did, an excellent choice for a on the go wallet. I just wish my trip was longer. I returned to a cold, dreary snowy rainy New York. Ugh, not fun!

And just a heads up, this is the first photo I shot with my Limo Studio lights. Or should I say light. I set up one light and then realized that the battery on my camera was dying. So I fired off a few shots and then had to stop. But not bad considering I shot with one light and did this in five minutes or so. I spent more time setting up the light and working on the image in photoshop.

These lights shoot kind of blue. I had my white balance on “day light” which they are balanced to be, but it was definitely blue. You can adjust your white balance settings or adjust this in Photoshop or Lightroom. But for $75 I am super happy with the soft box set that I purchased. And stay tuned for more product shots using these lights. I have much to learn, but I enjoy the process so it is all good!

Yes this is a Rebacca Minkoff kind of week. Today we are looking at Rebecca Minkoff’s fall collection for 2016. A youthful romp of flirty, just girlie enough looks filled with florals, lace and knits. Denim also has a moment in this collection: from asymmetrical mini skirts to distressed skinnies and subtle flares to a gorgeous patchwork bag it is all about the denim. Throw in a seventies inspired drawstring top, a what can only be described as a rippling water patterned maxi dress and a fringed “duffle” handbag and wow this collection is a refreshing celebration of fashion zeitgeist. And speaking of bags, Rebeca Minkfoff has really knocked it out of the park with her affordable and super fashion forward bags. With their perfect balance of form and function and impeccable style a Rebecca Minkoff bag is the bag for fall.

Rebecca Minkoff’s New Designed Home With One King’s Lane

Interior Design - alimackin@gmail.com - March 16, 2016

I have sometimes thought I have missed my calling and should have gone in to interior design. I work as a graphic designer and art director, but be it graphic design, fashion design or interior design a good eye is a good eye. So one of my favorite things to do is to look at the homes of fashion designers.

I think it really is a desire we all have—to create a space that is truly are own and for this space to be the place we feel the most at home. Allie of ALLIE NYC

I have sometimes thought I have missed my calling and should have gone in to interior design. I work as a graphic designer and art director, but be it graphic design, fashion design or interior design a good eye is a good eye. So one of my favorite things to do is to look at the homes of fashion designers. It is no surprise that their homes are just as beautiful as the clothing they create. And creating a beautiful home is also a wonderful expression of who they are as people. I think it really is a desire we all have—to create a space that is truly are own and for this space to be the place we feel the most at home. Yes some people have more of a knack for this, while others struggle.  But with the web, blogs and even remote design services it is now easier then ever to have a gorgeous space.
