For Denim Lovers Alike (F.D.L.A.) #fdla

"I have a dream …where denim is appreciated for all its comfort, uniqueness and durabiity. Where any wash, fit or brand is respected and exhaulted for what it brings to its host, but not how much it retails in stores. Where no matter the color or detail of the denim, they should not be frowned upon…I have a dream"!

Like Martin Luther King Jr. (or ralphlauren )…I too have a dream. This fall season is going to be one where the versatility of denim is praised for many reasons. You start to see the oh so tight trend begin to relax again and take a cooler approach. The length of pants get shorter, legs become wider and fit becomes the desire you feel at the moment, and not what hugs you tighter than your mother. Designer Labels like jbrandjeans , @Levi and @Luckybrandjeans (just to name a few) already have been catering to all types of people’s denim preferences, will start to see an increase in more unique styles of denim beginning this fall.

For those of you who are like me and like experimenting with whatever you like at the moment, I have another blog challenge for you (yes YOU!!!). Pair your favorite denims( any wash, any style, any color; pants, shorts, cutoffs or daisy dukes) with WHATEVER YOU WANT and style it to your liking. When you are all dressed, take a nice quality photo ann upload it to your social media pages and hashtag #myclosetspeaks #daOriginalHeir #fdla and also tag me @daOriginalHeir. You have until Friday afternoon. Ready, Start, GO!!!

Kenneth Cole*Innovative Influencer

With just two weeks before New York Fashion Week, kennethcole launches a plan to shape the way we shop—without ever having to leave (well kinda but not really) Instgram.

As major fashion houses prep the premiere of their S/S 2015 lines, Kenneth Cole has released its new Instagram page for viewers and shoppers alike. The official handle for the page is Kennethcole_instashop. The page is specifically geared toward their Fall pant guide for the launch, but I’m sure it will evolve to host all of the design houses collections, season by season.

The idea to launch this site was the smartest one from the @kennethcoleprd team. We spend so much time on social media and instagram that why not make our lives easier by giving us everything we need all in one place. I for sure am just waiting for one of these restaurant owners to join the wagon n let us order through instagram ( is Chic-Fil -A listening). For more info stop on by the page and find out what all the buzz is about.

Everything Beyonce does is careful and thought out. Her entire image is perfection crafted from planning ahead. She does not ‘wing it’ or throw things into her performances and public appearances ‘just because’.

What she did at this award show was amazing, especially because of how intentional and thought out it clearly was.

Feminism is a scary word for a lot of people. Many women are afraid of calling themselves feminist because they think it implies anger, hatred of men, or a rejection of traditional femininity. 

Beyonce presented everyone watching with two distinct images of what many viewers viewed as two very different women. There is the strong, independent FEMINIST. She is the woman who likes being in control and being in the spotlight. Then there is the WIFE and MOTHER. She is soft, sweet, smiling at the husband and child you can tell she loves and values so much.

For every girl watching who was afraid to be a feminist, afraid to be powerful, because of what she thought she would lose, this is an incredible message. You can be all the things you want to be. You can be both. Feminists can have amazing happy, full lives full of both traditional and modern womanhood. 

Feminism means gender should not be a source of persecution or a restriction of your choices. Feminism mean the type of person you should be is based on what you value, not what outside forces pressure you to value because of your gender or biological sex. Shout at the top of your lungs that you are a feminist and proud. Then go and be the exact person that you want to be. 

True definition!

Monochrome×Tartan #myclosetspeaks

As Fall Fashion Season approaches, are you frantically trying to find transitional pieces to pair with your statement pieces? Well you have lucked up (if you are reading this) and come to the right place.Listen to my testimony of how sometimes your wardrobe speaks to you…

Friday morning I went to my closet, flicked the light and gazed at my wardrobe for nearly ten minutes, with the search of something or anything. As I reached my hand to divide a few shirts, my @fashionsbyguy tartan tank (my very own clothing brand) fell off the hanger to the floor and to my surprise it fell on my True Blue @Zara Sneakers. Instantly I reached for my Super Skinny Blue @TopMan pants and my Blue @Zara Strap Button Neck Shirt. As I began walking out the door I looked at my hat rack and grabbed my thrifted blue skully to enhance the look. My closet spoke to me!!! And I chose to listen, I hope it speaks more this fall for I am constantly looking for more ways to revamp my wardrobe.

See you two can do the same thing with your closet. Grab a monochrome outfit and pair it with one of your statement pieces and see how it works out for you. When you are done, Tweet/Instagram me @daOriginalHeir using the hashtag #myclosetspeaks by Friday afternoon. The winning look will be chosen on Saturday and will receive a personalized shout out from me on my Social Media pages. Good Luck and look forward to seeing all the cool outfits you guys come up with.
