This evening, Thursday, August 30th, Africa Fashion Week Los Angeles (AFWLA) will host “Africa Is Rising”, a networking social highlighting Africa’s fashion and textile industries, at The Standard Hotel (550 S Flower Street) from 6-10pm. Tina Tangalakis of Della LA is our special guest, and proceeds from all ticket sales will go towards the MacDella Cooper Foundation.
Unfortunately, I already have plans for this evening but if I didn’t I would be there! Hope you all get to enjoy the event!

[still] on the rise.

Most recognized for his Oscar-winning lead role in The Pianist (2002) as well as other notable films like Cadillac Records (2008), Adrien Brody is a phenomenal actor but a handsome gent too! Often he’s not the first to jump into mind when thinking of a fine man but he sure is sexy.
Today Brody, was spotted in Milan at the Diesel Black Gold Spring/Summer 2013 show looking GQ!

Today Canali showcased their entire Spring/Summer 2013 Menswear collection at Milan Fashion Week. I loved many of the pieces but the dinner jackets were my favorites. The gents look sharp and dignified yet playful. I love a man with a sense of humor and I love these looks!

I’ve been keeping up with the Milan Fashion Week Menswear Spring/Summer 2013 shows and I’ve fallen head over heels for many of these man bags. Seriously, not only am I bag lady but I’d love to add a few of these runway spectaculars to my closet or perhaps give one or two as gift. As, I day-dream about purchasing a few of these take a look at some of my favorites.
