The “Not so Maxi”

4 Sep

The “Maxi dress”, a very popular trend for the summer has found a way to transition into the fall. It lost some fabric, became a skirt and finally, under went a little residual shrinkage. And the result, The “Not so Maxi” skirt. It includes a skirt that goes past the knees, or lower. It can be fitted or flared and found on all THEE trendsetters this fall. My suggestion, wearing the “Not so Maxi” with cute boots or a chunky wedge, (4 inches or higher!).

Step Into the Future of Fashion With Classic Inspiration From Ms. Jackie Kennedy

31 Aug


We all know the beautiful Jackie Kennedy, (later to be named Jackie Onassis) as first lady to the charming Mr. John F. Kennedy. Us ladies also know that Jackie Kennedy was a prominant figure in fashion, revamping the White House by bringing style into politics and yes, making it look good. She set the stage for what the ideal “American” woman should look like; sophistcated, classy, and of course fun. I have always admired Jackie for her strong-willed, independent and witty personality. I read a few short excerpts in the book, “What Jacki Taught Us” by Tina Santi Flaherty and something that caught my attention was after the first day she was selected to work for VOGUE MAGAZINE, she turned it down claiming the women worked to hard and were tiresome. Ha! How about that? She made fashion something fun and exciting, not something that consumed her.

Sticky.Vinyll would like to inspire Jackie’s look on to all the ladies approaching the future of fashion, who are looking for something new, but still classic. Notice how less is more and how pearls, a simple hat, and good pair of gloves will change a girl into a whole new woman …AND don’t forget the shades! Thanks Jackie.

Put Some Bows on it.

4 Aug


For any one who knows me, they can validate I’m genuinely obsessed with bows. I’m convinced that they’re thee most adorable, cutest, and sweetest thing that was ever created. Once I saw what VALENTINO did for his 2010 Fall/Winter collection, I instantly became plagued with bittersweet emotion. Bitter because my finances don’t support my exorbitant taste, but sweet because that’s exactly what this collection is. It’s girly, fun, fantastic and of course, filled with bows galore!

Of course, if I was in love with the clothes, my obsession with these gloves is probably going to be on the next level. If I could get my hands on these for the fall, I would be one of the happiest girls on the planet. Fashion heads have been saying that the gloves are tacky, and tastless. However, I one hundred percent disagree. I believe they are hot S@#! Over all, this is one of my favorite collections for Fall/Winter 2010 thus far.

The Nocturnal Approach.

31 Jul

Sometimes it’s hard finding the rite piece that completes an outfit. Especially when it comes to evening wear, it can be somewhat overwhelming . Am I under dressed? Am I overdressed? Both these questions can daunt us when finding the prefect outfit. Well, don’t sweat it. ELLE Magazine has you covered. They did the perfect spread on women’s evening wear, finding the prefect styles, garments and ideas to create the perfect look for a night on the town. My favorite piece from this entire collection are the Wool Pants by VALENTINO, (pictured above) priced at $1,690. Hey, I didn’t say I could afford them, however they fill the void of fashionable inspiration I was itching for. Check out more pics I LOVED from this spread!

Hop On The Cheese Wagon!

23 Jul

The Creator –

The Creator of The Cheese Wagon, Jamar James AKA Skely is taking men’s fashion to a whole new level, exploring what it really mean’s to look and feel luxuriously fly. During our very informal interview, I really got a chance to question and understand the whole idea behind “The Cheese Wagon”, which I am sure a lot of people may ask: “What and where exactly is this name inspired from?” Well, with an increase in energy and a reminiscent laugh, Jamar was sure ready to give a story. “As a youngster, “the wagon” was a term used as a joke or slang to poke fun at something, just something we grew up saying. People knew us for that name. When we got a little older and mature we put “Cheese” in front of the “Wagon” as a stamp of growth and entering man hood. It was like, we ain’t boys no more, it’s time to hop on the money train!Hints: “The Cheese Wagon”, it’s a lifestyle.”

Since early adolescence, Jamar has helped run the Brooklyn fashion scene, creating a buzz for his smooth, classic & clean cut style. While already obtaining a good eye for fashion along with natural artistic skill, it was not hard to bring his vision of men’s apparel to life. Teaming up with life long colleague and friend, Julius Ben, The Cheese Wagon clothing line was introduced to Brooklyn. The “I Love BK” T’s were the first Cheese Wagon creation and it was an instant hot commodity. Now, celebrating it’s five year anniversary, The Cheese Wagon line of classic, luxurious, swagged out apparel has been on the backs of many. Have you hopped on the Cheese Wagon Yet?

This is only the beginning! Stay in tuned with what The Cheese Wagon has in store!

The Cheese Wagon is available at The Wagon Boutique in Brooklyn, NY or online @ www.thewagonbk.com.
