Veronica Sheaffer SS 2022 Runway Show

Last night’s fashion show was short, sweet and filled with high fashion! A perfect night if you ask me. If you aren’t familiar with Veronica Sheaffer, her top can be seen in my lastest Harper’s Bazaar Editorial and not to mention her entire collection is magical, fluffy and gives me bad B vibes. The new collection displayed last night at Soho House Chicago didn’t disappoint one bit.

The night started with cocktails at 9 at the beautiful Soho House Chicago followed by the fabulous show for Veronica Sheaffer SS 2022

We arrived early enough had great comfy seats for the show. Which is very important considering I was wearing heels.

2021 NYFW Recap

Finally caught up with all the fabulous fashion shows from NYFW 2021 that I would’ve attended IRL had I received my invites but I completely understand things get mixed up and mail gets lost – No worries!Β 

Thank the fashion gods I was able to watch most of my favorites shows on my NYFW app where I went each evening from my backyard in Skokie, IL and binged in my best looks on ALL things New York Fashion Week 2021. I personally love the BTS ( behind the scene) videos, designer interviews and the fact I can pause a show because kids need me or dogs need walking. Here are my favorite screen grabs from Bronx and Branco, Laquan Smith, and Christian Soriano.

I then headed to to watch The Bomb Fashion Show online and Claire Sulmers never disappoints. I felt like I was there and I was not! Here are a couple of my favorite screen grabs from the LIVE on Instagram during the Mahjong Wong show but you can go watch right now. I absolutely love how Fashion Bomb Daily is opening up runway’s for designers that are not typically seen.Β 

Which were your favorites? I’d love to know πŸ™‹πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

Fall Trend Predictions for 2021

As the world turns and seasons begin to change. We try to regain normalcy in our lives but there is still so much out of our control. One thing I know we can control is how we dress which goes hand and hand with how you feel before y’all call me vain. So let me help you look the flyest with this upcoming seasons hottest predictions & maybe a little nostalgia with a couple of 90’s trends I see making a big return this Fall.

Oversized denim – It’s nice to have breathing room in our denim. I can remember wearing my jeans 5x my size back in the 90’s. Give this trend a chance with a bodysuit, fitted top, or a graphic t-shirt. Don’t forget a belt πŸ˜‰ Cue in Rhianna

Suits – A suit can be dressed down simply by adding a hoodie under the blazer or dressed up by adding a lingerie piece and a sexy heel. Think Bella Hadid

Sequins – Make everything better. I’m not telling you to wear it head to toe but definitely incorporate a little sparkle with your denim. Everyone should have a sequin hoodie in their closets. Kendall & Celine had the same thought.

Cut out details – a peek a boo effect always adds mystery to every outfit. The perfect way to spice up any piece of wardrobe. From a midi dress with cut outs to a bodysuit. From runway’s to city streets.

Puffer Fashion – Jackets, Bags, and Shoes but let’s try to keep it one puffer piece per look. If not it’s going to be a puff puff pass on that. Kanye sold how many Puffers?? We will see these EVERYWHERE

Crops – Yes, I know these aren’t the most practical of tops but keep reading. When paired with a high waisted bottom like wide leg pant, skirt or shorts they can upgrade any look from cute to HAUTE!

Lug Soles – Ankle to Thigh Highs. Bring them out. Pair them with shorts, skirt or pants. You know these boots were made for stomping.

So there are my fashion predictions for Fall 2021 Do you love them or hate them?? Which do you have in the closet or plan on adding? Hope this helps you while you’re out/online shopping πŸ›οΈ

Shoe upcycle with

I am extremely excited to show you the collaboration that I have been working on with

I had a couple of pairs of shoes that could use a second life. So, I knew it was time for an upcycle. It’s also been a long time since my last upcycle. So I took the rubber stamp, some ink and went to town.

Use code SBSENTME at for a special discount πŸ’Œ

I stamped the entire boot and then moved onto the shoes. I created my very own unique print. I am so happy how they turned out. How do you think I did?

Disclaimer: I tried several inks but I did have to wait 24hrs for ink to dry and then I sprayed a clear coat over then.

Stamped boots

Ad: I did receive the stamp at no cost for my post.
