During the interview (which was supposed to be all about my collection for WantMyLook but somehow wasn't lol), our beautiful model Amanda came out in one of the looks from my collection, "The Skater Dress"
|Runway Models, us other girls can only dream of being that tall...|
My inspiration for the fall collection comes from my very own closet. I have over 20 years, and likely millions of dollars, in research from my own shopping that went into my designs lol. I basically made things that I love. Silhouettes that I feel flatter a woman's body, and are sexy while still staying classy.
|I changed into The Skater Dress right after the interview for lunch!!|
If you like The Skater Dress that was revealed today, you will likely love the rest of my collection as well. And, if you don't like the dress, don't worry, there's plenty more :)
Since we revealed the dress, WantMyLook made it available today as well!! You can be the first to grab yours before it even hits the runway. Click Here to link to the dress.
As for my own look for the interview, I went with a beautiful green tunic dress (its called the "Rue Tunic" from WantMyLook). I paired it with gold Jimmy Choo heels and a black and gold Chanel Boy Bag.
Ironically, when I showed up on the KTLA set, the model Amanda was wearing THE EXACT SAME "Rue Tunic" from WantMyLook lol. We did NOT plan it, in fact we didn't even know the other owned the tunic. The good news was that Amanda was changing for the segment into the Skater Dress, so it didn't matter. Twinning!!
|Rue Tunic Twins!!|
|Lilly Lashes baby!!!|
The great part about Lilly Lashes is that they all come in invisible bands, meaning there is no thick band at the base of the lashes like most other companies. This not only makes the lashes more comfortable to wear, it also allows you to STACK them, creating your own unique, glam styles.
You can wear 2-3 pairs and it will only feel like 1 pair since all you are really adding are lashes. I'm obsessed with my own product lol.
For the hair look, I am wearing Lilly Hair clip in extensions in color 1 or Jet Black. I am wearing a FULL PACK!! I don't always wear a full pack (at 260g it's A TON of hair!!), but I wanted to be extra fabulous today, so I went for it all.
Here's a fun photo with my hair stylist Francisco Pinto, he's amazing. This photo was before I switched to my black Chanel Boy Bag (in this photo I'm using a red YSL bag).
For the accessories, I kept it simple and sexy. My engagement ring of course, paired with a gorgeous gold and diamond serpent bracelet from my line of fine jewelry, The Lilly Ghalichi Collection by Avitan.
Although I decided to make affordable clothes, with jewelry, I went with fine jewelry, using only REAL gold and diamonds. The reason I did is simple, it goes back to my theory on shopping: SAVE with clothes and SPLURGE with accessories.
Real Jewelry has real value, meaning resale value. If you ever need money, or you decide you don't want the item anymore, you can always sell fine jewelry and recoup almost all your cost, if not even make money since precious metals and stones are always appreciating!
With clothes, you don't have the same luxury. Even the finest fabrics or most sought after designers, clothes will not appreciate and have almost no re-sale value once you walk out the store.
Well, that was my MORNING y'all, now I'm at the WantMyLook office, back hard at work finishing up my collection.
