What could possibly be the best part of summer, but new clothing and beautiful weather?  Earlier this week I had the opportunity to meet the creative genius behind the uplifting lifestyle brand, Peace Love World, in her tranquil home.  Alina Villasante built what may seem like an overnight sensation, but one can feel the genuine positivity and love through her personality which she has headlined her brand to make it what it is today.  Upon a lovely welcoming into her home, I had a chance to preview the Peace Love World Spring/Summer 2014 collection during a private editor's event over mimosas and a light brunch.

The luxury lifestyle brand incorporated a combination of its signature and new symbols in the Spring/Summer 2014 collection, featuring Love Poet, I Love Sundays (a personal favorite), Love Hippie, Peace is Powerful and Happy is the New Black.  The new collection focuses on heavenly fabrics, feminine accents, and incredibly comfortable pieces for an effortless style.  

When asked what the inspiration was behind this collection, Villasante says,

"This Spring I was inspired to use the gentle colors of the earth that express hope and life.  Each silhouette revolves around clean lines and textured fabrics.  This season was developed through my roots and love of European style using lightweight fabrics with a hint of loose knits.  I believe elegance is an attitude.  And our apparel empowers people to feel comfortable and confident with every move they make."

Fashion for a Cause with Bloomingdale's - Event Video + Photos




Last night, over 20 fashion bloggers and I rocked the runway as bloggers against breast cancer for Fashion for a Cause at Bloomingdale's.  We began working on the campaign last month and teamed up in a collaborative photo shoot at the Sagamore, Art Hotel in Miami Beach along with talented photographer Alexander Tamargo to create a video installation that was unveiled at Bloomingdale's at our event.


As I mentioned in my previous post about the campaign, special guests Marisa Acocella Marchetto (Glamour cartoonist and author of Cancer Vixen), Bob Carey, and Luis Valenzuela were available to meet and greet with guests while the fashion bloggers were prepping for the runway.  Guests also devoured gluten-free cupcakes by BunnieCakes, fro-yo by Pinkberry and sips by Perrier.

SoBlo styled our hair while Bloomingdale's newest cosmetic area, Illamasqua gave each blogger a fabulous pink-inspired look to pair well with our Peace Love World shirts.  As a runway blogger, I pre-selected and styled my look courtesy of Bloomingdale's and had an amazing time supporting a great cause.  As a niece of breast cancer survivors, this particular cause was close to my heart and I will continue to support breast cancer awareness.

Taking Shape with Cameo and Rhythm of Grace

In the fashion world, geometry becomes a statement with both fresh and minimalistic pieces or bold standout items.  The key to pulling together a chic geometric look is to create balance in the overall appearance.  Therefore, I've teamed up with Rhythm of Grace boutique to showcase some of its best designer pieces to create this look.

To balance out the boldness of this Cameo Arthur Cape, I paired it with a sleek and clean Cameo Better Days Romper and minimal accessories.  Although I kept accessories at a minimum, I chose an intricate Venice Multi-Chain Watch by La Mer Collections.  What I love about this bracelet is that it weaves various metallics (gold, silver, bronze) to pair well with any outfit.

One of Rhythm of Grace's best kept secrets is its gorgeous handbags designed by Dareen Hakim, which have the most unique details and shape.  This Citrus Le V Clutch balances out this look perfectly, with its silhouette and bold color.  I love a great standout piece that I can pair with neutral tones to polish everything off.

As one of the top 30 fashion and beauty bloggers, I recently had the pleasure of joining forces with Peace Love World and Bloomingdale's to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer through the Fashion for a Cause Campaign.  The campaign was photographed at the Sagamore, The Art Hotel over a two-day period by photographer Alexander Tamargo, where we teamed up with homegrown brand Peace Love World to model their breast cancer collection.  I wanted to take you with me for the experience, so I compiled this behind-the-scenes video from the Fashion for a Cause Campaign photo shoot:


Photos from this campaign will be on display at Bloomingdale's in Aventura Mall and The Falls Shopping Center through the month of October where you can also buy Peace Love World's collection.  Not only am I thrilled to take part in such a great cause, but the photo shoot was so much fun and Alexander was an outstanding photographer to work with!
