1) Guest Post by Robin Avidor

The snow finally melted and sun came out. What a great day to go shopping Soho NYC!! You never know what you will find.

Well, I found a fashion education at Madonna & Co in Soho!

When you walk into Madonna & Company your first feeling is homey. A very luxurious home, like the most awesome closet ever! There is so much to see, things you won’t see anywhere else. This is what they have to say…”It’s completely and uniquely about you. We figure you’re tired of seeing the same old, same old so we’ve put the thrill back in shopping.” and it’s true. It’s definitely not a shop for only the wealthy woman. It is for every woman who loves to have a unique, edgy, NYC kind of style. That’s ME! The shop is very inviting and the staff is super friendly. I absolutely recommend that you visit them. Allow yourself plenty of time to take it all in, don’t worry there are comfy seats if needed! …….. Read more.

No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart.-Anonymous

 Yes, we admit it, we have been missing in action for a while now. If you know us well, you would have guessed that it was an ” enhancement break”. That short span of time where we just stop and re-evaluate the quality of our ezine. The good news is, we are back!

Since July is the month of weddings, we decided to create a series of guides for the bride and just about everyone else involved.

Learn how to look flattering no matter what your body type may be and how to choose the right materials and colors.

Keep reading to find out more.

Chic and Defined:

Nice to meet you! I’m Kyle, a recent grad of  the University of Michigan who’s obsessed with all things fashion and media.This is a fashion and career blog, that’s also here to document my steps, and missteps, as I graduate, begin navigating through the world of PR, job hunt and just try to be a 20 year old! It won’t just be about fashion or just about PR and Lifestyle stuff; it’ll be a mix of both and how they fit in with my at times crazy life. Sometimes a quote is all that’s needed other times a whole page.

The Styleseer:

I’m Lauren, a passionate photographer. I love fashion, food, far-flung places. Aspiring to be West Coast’s Bill Cunningham.

Vogue&Heels:

I’m Anngelik Mary Martinez. The word “Fashion” does not mean to go out and buy everything that one sees as expensive. Being fashionable is an expression that one creates to be unique and different from everyone else. To stay up to date with fashion is very easy and it should not be expensive. My goal is to inspire every woman out there and to show what’s in style and where to shop for it at good and affordable prices because every woman out there deserves to be and feel beautiful!
