How do you pronounce HAUTE COUTURE?


Apparently, it’s NOT Hottie Cuteratie… although close!  =)

Timeless Pieces

pearl necklaceTimeless pieces are items that it doesn’t matter what era you’re in, they will remain stylish, valuable, and essential to your wardrobe without losing their uniqueness. It does not have to be from a high-end or a well-known brand. As a matter of fact, many pieces in fashion museums are from designers who are no longer existent. But what does this mean to you? I will tell you what it means to me. My first year in college, I went to FIT, was a full-time student with a part-time job and I fell in LOVE with a beautiful tissue leather lab coat. Yup. How weird is that?! A beige soft leather lab coat with no buttons, light as air, and beautifully handcrafted. It was on sale for $400. I thought about it so much. Remember the keywords: student and part-time job. Not to mention one spends hundreds of dollars per month in art supplies. But I caved in. And am so glad I did. Almost 20 years later (yes, I’m that old!) I’ve yet to see anything like this jacket on the market. Every Spring season, I like to give my clothes away to Salvation Army, churches, etc., when doing my spring cleaning. And after 4 years, got tired of wearing it and gave it away.

Silver Sulfadiazine to treat Burns

silver sulfadiazine

As beautistas we’re no strangers to heating products from flat irons to curling wands. You name it, we guarantee the hotter the iron the better the hair results. However, there comes a time when those tools slip out of our hands and burn our skin. This happened to me not so long ago where I was in utter pain with a huge burnt mark on my neck. I went to my PCP (Primary Care Physician) and she prescribed Silver SulfadiazineWithin days I healed completely and was left with NO scar behind unlike other ointments I’ve used before. Silver Sulfadiazine is a cream that contains usually about 1% silver sulfadiazine to treat infections and burns. It is also given to patients taking radiation to treat those heavily radiated areas. This stuff is amazing! Especially, if you’re a bad cook or baker like me, burning yourself more often than you’d like to admit. *ahem* SS is not meant for those allergic to sulfa, newborns/infants two months old or younger. Once you apply this topical cream (until healed) you cannot put over it cosmetics, bandages, lotions, etc. You must allow the wound to breathe. Just like any drug it has side effects, none that I experienced when I use it. It is for External Use ONLY. As always Fashkiddos, you know the deal: Before using any product we rave about ask your doctor or dermatologist about it FIRST and make sure you’re NOT allergic. And if using this product I also advise you follow up with your PCP and inform them of your progress. Overall, I think it is a great product to have in your medicine cabinet.

Former Miss Universe, Stefania Fernandez brings awareness of Venezuela’s Frail condition

Venezuela Queen gagged 3

Former Miss Universe (Venezuela 2009), Stefanía Fernández, was photographed crying bloody tears, bruised up, covered in dirt, bound, and gagged with a grief-stricken look in her eyes while wearing her crown to illustrate the raw pain the people of her country of Venezuela are currently undergoing. This image is part of a photo shoot by fashion photographer, Daniel Bracci for the Un Mundo sin Mordaza campaign (meaning a world without a gag indicating that *Your Voice is Your Power*). Un Mundo sin Mordaza is an organization promoting freedom of speech by paying tribute to Venezuela’s fallen (killed when they were peacefully protesting).

Venezuela Gagged 2

There’s nothing beautiful about the atrocities being practiced by Venezuelan President, Nicolás Maduro enforcing the law by annihilating those who do not support his political views and oppose his human rights violations. Since he took office Venezuela’s condition has only gone downward with inflation up by 57%. Maduro demands his soldiers terrorize those who are not with him. And the people have had enough. Daniel Bracci (see image below) is pictured holding a sign with four hashtags that read #rediseñandounpais (redesigning a country), #fashion4peace, #prayforvenezuela and #iamyourvoicevenezuela.
