Currently, fashion has made a total overhaul and given an overall transfusion to those items that made style in the past, so stylish.  Lets bring forth Exhibit A, the magic of tights A/K/A panty hoses — yes that name makes everyone cringe – but lately, little by little tights have taken over fashion and have become a vital accessory to any outfit. Panty hoses became fashionable as they were introduced in the 1960s to provide a convenient alternative to stockings.  Now tights come in so many colors and forms: neon, graphics, lace, leather, metallic, they are so incredibly chic and they perform their role to perfection.  I guess granny is not old-fashioned anymore.

Now lets focus on Exhibit B, headbands and barrettes.  Besides Gossip Girl, these accessories were only stylish back in the days, mainly in private schools, where girls were obligated to use them in order to keep their hair away from their faces.  At the present time, hair accessories of the best caliber will easily sale for amounts as high as $400! They are so cute that simply it is worth the splurge.

And finally Exhibit C, brooches, yes those little “clip ons” that really had no real purpose but signified heritage and class.  This decorative jewel dates back to the Romans, Greeks and research has even found some as late as the 800 A.D! Today, brooches are used as a way to express your style and creativity.

So look around, do you see any fashion revivals?

Last night we surely enjoyed a wonderful night filled with fashion, friends and excellent people.  We gathered at Green Grass Boutique for their annual Art & Accessories Bazaar and gawked at some truly excellent works of art!

Firstly, image and style consultant, Marisol Gomez, welcomed us.  She offered her services and gave us a color analysis on what palettes complement our skin types.  What a revelation!! I was surprised to learn that the colors that best suit me are burnt colors, especially coral.  Well I better do some smart shopping now!!

Later, we walked around and discovered amazing jewelry and art displayed all around the boutique.  The fantastic art exposition was from artists Isa Zapata, Cristina Boter, Jamie Gershen and Rosaura Perez.  The jewelry designers were Citrine by the Stones, Mishky, Crish, Silvana Danies, Equinoccio + Equinoccio, Lola James, Strada di Gioia, Jenny Salinas, Astrid Poletti and Katch.

Now the pointing finger lands on the second team member, Paola De Castro, the creative talent behind Mandrake Public Relations. A fashion publicist for the past couple of years, she lives and breathes for fashion. Nothing comes short as to describe how fascinated she gets when setting her eyes on a new and original fashion talent.  She is always on the prowl for that special “Je ne sais quoi”.

Paola De Castro

Paola has worked non-stop with a diverse array of fashion PR agencies and is happy to say that she has cultivated a descent set of tools that makes her a valuable asset to Mandrake PR.  Give her a theme and let the magic begin as she creatively sets out to write about it, even those subjects that lack the wow factor.

There is no time or space for her when she is set out to reach a PR goal and the beauty of it is that she actually loves what she does, as no challenge is too big or too small for her.  Paola thrives at challenging endeavors as it fuels and nourishes her creative engine to excel in anything she sets her mind to.  Now, wouldn’t any new potential client want to take advantage of that?
