Talk about bright lights, big city!
Eager fans lined up for the chance to see the ‘Camp Rock’ and ‘Jonas’ star, Nick Jonas.
“More is more” is how a representative from Macy’s gallery showroom explained the collection that will be on the Macy’s sales floor in November.
We have come to a day and age where the common person with a day job does not want to be bothered to go change before going out with their friends after work. Why not innovate work and play wardrobes to optimize time? With the metallic fabrics, jewel inspired colors, “winter white” themes, paired with silver and gold jewelry, your all day outfit will fully cooperate with the daytime and nightlife.
The showroom also displayed Givenchy necklaces and earrings that will make any lady feel pretty, and velvet, jewel embroidered chokers for a chic, edgy vibe. Luxury fashion inspired pieces also took the cake while I was browsing the showroom.
Ankle boot heels that looked very similar to Margiela (without the Margiela price tag!), a silver metallic aviator jacket that could easily be mistaken for Acne Studios and many more pieces stood out, even for men! Also, if you’re looking for holiday sweaters, look no further than your local Macy’s! Playfully coined phrases such as “Snowtorious” and “Straight Outta North Pole” adorned the cheeky Christmas sweaters. Make sure you hit the stores in November when they drop to get your Fall/Winter wardrobe in tact!
On Thursday November 17th Mexican star, Thalia, hosted an event to introduce her Holiday 2016 collection for Macy’s at the Dream Midtown in New York City. It was a joyful evening with laughter and dance moves surrounding the Latin star, who just finished her US Latina Love tour.
For their Spring 2016 campaign, INC International Concepts [Macy’s private label brand] turned to instafamous couple Murad and Nataly Osmann to take the lead in a travel inspired line.
In celebrating Black History Month, Macy’s locations in nine cities are hosting panel discussions with black celebrities in art, music, film, television, literature, culinary arts and journalism throughout the month of February.
Macy’s recently kicked off the first of eight panel discussions on Wednesday (February 3rd) in New York City in which Grammy Award winner Monica, Actor, author and Former 106 & Park Host Terrence J, and actress Jurnee Smollett-Bell (who stars in upcoming show Underground) were on hand to participate.
Essence Fashion Editor Joiee Thorpe served as moderator during the panel discussion where Monica, Jurnee and Terrence talked about a variety of topics including their personal influences and overcoming obstacles and giving inspirational words of advice. “God blessed all of us with something in us that’s great, it’s just up to us to tap into what it is find out what we’re passionate about and use your passion in order to become that success that you want to be,” Terrence J told the attendees as inspiration to follow their dreams and goals.
Those in attendance were also given the opportunity to ask the three celebrities questions during a Q&A, and also had the opportunity to pose for pictures with the stars during a post discussion meet and greet. Attendees also had the opportunity to win tickets to see the Brooklyn Nets vs the Charlotte Hornets.
Following Wednesday’s kickoff event Macy’s will hold Black History Month panel discussions in Chicago, Philadelphia, Aventura, Los Angeles, Miami, Atlanta, San Francisco, Washington D.C. Other celebrities who are participating include Taye Diggs, Chef G. Garvin, sports reporter Rosalyn Gold-Onwude, Black Girls Rock! founder Beverly Bond and social activist Eunique Jones Gibson and illustrator Shane Evans.
Triple threat, Thalia Sodi (singer, actress, and designer), celebrated the launch of her Holiday 2015 Collection with Macy’s. The launch party was held at the Hotel Americano on Tuesday, October 27th. The collection includes apparel, shoes, and jewelry. Majority of the items are under $100, with the highest price being $139.50.
The collection has great separates that are festive for the holidays but can still be worn throughout the year. One of my favorite dresses is the Longsleeve Gather Skirt Surplice Dress. The dress hugs curves perfectly and shows just a hint of skin with a high, mid thigh slit and a sweetheart neckline. It comes in fun prints like a mixed animal print and retails for $89.50. I’ve also been searching for the perfect fur vest. The collection has an ivory Collarless Faux Fur Vest that also retails for $89.50. For holiday party looks, the vest looks great paired with an evening cocktail dress. For a more casual look, the vest can easily dress up jeans and a blouse, perfect with the tall Alma Black Boots that retail for $139.50.
