Adriana's Favorite Things

So we have some uber fashionable folks here at the Fashion Bomb!
Today A-Plus intern Adriana....
...steps in to tell you guys some of her favorite stylish picks.
"Hey my FB people!
Right now, summer’s got me in a bit of a feminine tomboy phase, so fitted graphic tees (especially my N.E.R.D. concert t-shirt), cute shorts, and my Liberty Fabric high-top Nike Dunks are in heavy rotation...

"...David Yurman’s Thoroughbred earrings are one of my constants as they’re a great wardrobe staple and go with either gold or silver jewelry. I’m almost always toting my Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 bag - there’s no other purse that can hold a pair of shoes, a book, and a bottle of water, and still look as small and uncomplicated. I’m a hat rather than sunglasses person, and for the last several months it’s been my Eugenia Kim Muffy cap. I’m obsessed with chunky platform shoes, and Marni’s platforms are a favorite. What’s great about this style is that I can easily swap the Dunks for the Marnis, add a silk tunic top (my favorite for a summer night on the town), accessorize with a necklace, and –voila! – I’ve got my evening look without having to give up my shorts."
Featured: Nike Womens Dunk Shoes, $105. Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Speedy, $685. NERD Seeing Sounds Shirt, Price Upon Request. David Yurman Thoroughbred Earrings, $275. Rory Beca Cuffed Short, $109. Eugenia Kim Muffy Hat, $165. Marni Calf Patent Leather Platform, $334. Tibi Palm Grove Beaded Tunic Top, $298. Urban Outfitters Charming Beloved Cluster Necklace, $17.
"I’ve only got a few beauty must-haves, but they’re ones I can’t do without:"
"...I’m into skincare and lotions, and have used Creamy Petroleum Jelly for a long time daily on my skin. It’s heavy but the results are well worth it (my skin’s now so well-moisturized that I can miss a day or two of lotion sometimes). Jo Malone’s Vitamin E hand cream is a decadent treat as well as the best lotion I have ever smelled, period. Bumble and Bumble are hands-down my pick for hair care products. For evenings, I sometimes brush on a bit of shimmer powder, like Sephora’s Luminous powder Trio, swipe on some M.A.C. Lipglass, and I’m usually good to go!"
Featured: Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, $4. Jo Malone Vitamin E Nourishing Hand Treatment, $40. Bumble and Bumble Deep Conditioner, $25. Sephora Luminous Trio, $16.
What are some of your favorite things??

Thanks, Leslie! I got the tee at the Glow in the Dark concert. I know Kanye's tees are available on his Web site but haven't seen the N.E.R.D. shirts anywhere else. Maybe try e-Bay as stuff like this often pops up there?

THOSE DUNKS ARE THE BIZZ! I got a fit that would go PERFECT with them. Your flavor is hot, I Love it! I'm more of a "feminine tomboy" myself. Hey! You know what? Since you're so heavy on the fashion tip, I know that you would get a kick out of Bianca from Toyota's "IF Looks Could Kill" series. Now THAT is a bad broad! She takes care of her business and looks fly doing it.

She plays the role of an aspiring fashion designer, played by Femi Emiola, Wicked Wicked Games, who is a prime example of a woman who’s got it going on. I’m talking the dream job, a handsome dude by her side , and the spice to keep it all together when hell hits the fan. Think James Bond meets Sanaa Lathan in “Something New”. Check her out and see why she's the one AND the two. LOL

The fourth episode-Family Jewel- has been available as of 7/7, but it's not too late to catch up and tune in. I work with Toyota, so take my word for it.


After you get reeled in don't forget to hit me up and give me the scoop about your thoughts on the webisodes okay?

Looking forward to the chit-chat!

'Love those Marni platforms! I work the tomboy look during hot summer months, but come fall I can't resist a pair of hot pumps. Work it!
