Runways on a Rainy Day

Okay so I lied, it really doesn't rain much here in the desert.  I've been here 10 months already and I can count on one hand how many times its showered.  One of the many things I miss about to East Coast.

Usually on my liberty days my boyfriend and I just chill around the house and relax.  I'm watching Fashion Network from sun-up to sun-down, surrounded by my glossies (old and new), while he's laid out on the couch usually watching old school cartoons on DVD, surrounded by his own glossies which usually consists of The New Yorker, Foreign Affairs, and Running.  These are our "rainy days".
Well not today.  We're going to spend the day at Al Bander Resort.  Fun in the ssuuunnn.  I can't wait to see some results from all my many days in the gym rockin running shorts, sweaty shirts and headbands.

For all of my fellow fashion lovers that are stuck in the house today, I wanted to leave you with some of my current favorite runway shows.  Hopefully you'll enjoy them just as much as I do.  I notice everything from who's sitting in the front row to which model has the best walk to even which model seems to be just starting out all while enjoying the show.  Multi-tasking at it's best!

This is Massimo Rebecchi MIFW Fall/Winter Collection

And this is Gaetano Navarra MIFW Fall/Winter Collection

I hadn't even heard of these designers before I came across these videos on Fashion Network.  I'm so glad I did though, they both have great things to offer us in the wonderful world of fashion!

So what do you think? Did you enjoy them as much as I?? What designers have you newly discovered lately??

Until next time

Memory Monday

While at work today my mind went into complete reminiscent mode and I went back to middle school in my thoughts for a little while. It was actually kinda nice. Friday afternoons on the school bus, having the sleep over we planned all week at lunch and passed notes about in Math class, allowance. Ahh the good times. These memories also brought me back to the atrocious trends. I just knew I was too fly in my Limited Too bellbottoms and my Sketcher platform sneakers. Ooohhh yea! Ladies you remember those days, don't even try to deny it. When we all wanted to be a certain Spice Girl.

Well now the bells are gone and its all about the skinny leg and the platform has become a wedge.

What are some of your favorite memories in fashion? Don't hold back on the embarrassing moments...lets get a good laugh together!

Until next time

Keeping up with the Times

I can't really say I've been "busy" but there have been a few other things that have taken my attention away from blogging. Studying for my upcoming advancement exam, staying consistent in the gym and of course my contributing fashion editor duties to GAZ and Shout magazine. I will do better I promise. Here's a quick recap of the things I would have blogged about if time permitted:

*Yay for Lebron!! It's nice to know who your fans/friends really are once you make a decision that is better for you and not what other people want. I don't care where he goes, just keep doing what you do best! I mean that is why we love him in the first place right??

*Congrats to LaLa and Melo. I really like Lala, always smiling, always with her son and she always walks with her head held high. Im so happy she's gotten her happy ending!

*Zoe Salanda is the new face of Calvin Klein underwear. YYYEEESSSSSS!!! LOVES that woman, she just ozzes grace, glamour and femininity. Actually, I know I'll be blogging about this one, her campaign is FAB and I love her too much not to.

*Bahrain Fashion Week. Well it means more to me than anything. You won't find coverage on it on any of the fashion websites but you will find it here on GL'AMore. I will be working it and it's another experience that's going to better me in my career. It's not until November but I will be updating on it...this is year 3 for the Kingdom and it's already gone international.

I know this wasn't much but I just wanted to say SOMETHING today before my workout. Swimming today...we shall see how that goes.

What are your thoughts...comments...agreements...disagreements?? I'd love to hear your feedback!!

Until next time
