As brand representative to luxury skin care brands Laura Mercier and ReVive, Liah spits her time between Vancouver and travelling around the globe, to create flawless faces. She utilizes her creative background to generate spectacular outfits.
Liah continually shifts her style with her personal development. Her creative essence is what drives her looks forward. A master of interior design, Liah likes to play with shapes and accessories. Collecting vintage handbags, and adding new classics, like her Hermes shoulder sling in signature orange, Liah keeps her look current and original. Always on trend, yet looking completely natural.
Her current incarnation looks effortless, but I am sure she takes time to choreography each look. Liah says that her latest secret to shopping, is to shop everywhere; she doesn’t discriminate based on brand anymore. Once a label whore, Liah now loves to find a good deal at J Crew, while still mixing-and-matching with Phillp Lim.
It’s a lot of fun checking out stylish cities of the world, and attending famous fashion week schedules, but I live in Vancouver. In my own little city, known for many amazing things, fashion is not always one of them. However, we have been blessed with a handful of stylish designers that have earned a place in our city and internationally. Jacqueline Conoir’s designer, Rozemerie Cuevas, is one Vancouver designer on top. Established in 1985, Rozemerie Cuevas has taken her collection, named after her grandmother to extraordinary heights.
This Spring Rozemerie created a new exciting younger collection named, JAC, which is edgy and fresh. Both collections, Jacqueline Conoir and JAC, service modern women fashion needs, but each reflect individual flare. JAC is full of fun and interesting fabrications, while Jacqueline Conoir, still fun, is upscale sophistication.
I have used both collections for styling jobs, and it’s always a home run when I hit the studio to pull. From print ads to red carpets, Rozemerie has proven that she is a stylist dream, while dressing the everyday women. Her new 8000sf boutique studio services clients and wardrobe needs with personal stylist that are always on hand to guide you through your shopping experience.
Here are some looks from her Spring/Summer 2012 collection, and a Muse Closet exclusive video from her Fall/Winter 2012 runway collections.
The shoe seen round the world, Willow Smith sporting the Y3 high heel shoe, which was captured by every photographer for Spring 2012. I love the shoe!! Most talk shows and “news” shows kept talking about the price. Who cares, real fashion lovers don’t care about price, only style!!! Fuck the price, credit cards take care of that problem.
What Willow Smith’s fantastic shoe choice made me think about was Yohji Yamamoto. Before Rick Owens ruled street style, Yohji Yamamoto was giving us exaggerated shapes, while blending 80’s Punk into high fashion. Today, he uses Hip-Hop’s shapes, layered with 80’s Punk, and Hipper chic, if we can blend all those together. Well he did.
Yohji Yamamoto’s Y3 collection, is a connection to street style. Willow Smith is a great example of how we can take apart what is on the runway and make it our own. Labels have become a thing of the past, as every Tom, Dick, and Sally sporting an LV logo bag. Today, real fashionistas still like designer fashion, but look, shape, and context mean so much more.
Y3 takes all of Yohjo Yamamoto’s main ideas and makes them practical. Made in part with Adidas, Y3 can not be looked at as the little brother to Yohji, but a full on individual brand. Not made for everyone, Y3 take guts and confidence to wear. Goal for Spring, something Y3 to ignite my Spring wardrobe. What about you?
Hate her, love her, you will know her name, Madonna. Tonight, Madonna will cast controversy at the Super Bowl, not for what she will do or sing, but simply by her presence. Why does she always cause so much chatter? Adopting a child, music videos, and kissing girls, Madonna is always on pop culture edge. Pop stars come and go like newspaper headlines, today hot, tomorrow not. However, she is always moving forward, while other major names drift to obscurity, Madonna is still building an empire. Most people want to dismiss Madonna because of what is printed and written about her every move, but after tonight’s game I hope there is one thing to say—amazing.
Pop stars half her age are doing anything to drum up publicity and sales, Madonna is still marching forward. The diva set—Mariah and Whitney—are trying to stay relevant, but Madonna is still selling out stadiums.
In 2008, Madonna graced Vancouver, Canada with a concert, and I was fortunate to finagle a ticket. She shut our city down, almost 2 hours late, no one minded waiting for her to grace the stage. I am not celebrity obsessed and I don’t go to concerts, so I really had no idea what to expect, I knew I had to go because she had never been to Vancouver, and she is Madonna.
She kicked my ass; fifty and I could keep dancing with her all night. I had to sit down. People tonight will see her energy and passion for performance and music, and I hope her critics take notice. For over twenty-five years, Madonna has kept current. This is something that is worth applauding because in an industry were women are always pushed out at a particular age, she is still kicking.
I am not a football fan, so I don’t even know who is playing, but I will be watching. Go Madonna!!!
The second most popular post on my blog, thus far, is my shaving tutorial for men. Jamie had great advice for men, but unfortunately he does not sell products for women. Well, I guess you could swing by and ask; I am sure he would pull something together for you.
One of my blog followers, and close friend, wanted to know why I hadn’t done anything for my female viewers, well here we go. I meet with beauty and all around lifestyle expert, Liah Anderson, to discuss great tips for skin care. I’ve always felt an art piece needs a great canvas, and I believe that your skin is that canvas. Therefore, before you touch brush to make-up, you need to get your skin flawless.
Liah invited me into her beautifully custom designed home, interior design done by her—I hope she lets me do a tour for everyone—for now she has great advice to activate your skin and turn back time—no, not while dancing to Cher.
Liah is a skin care expert with plenty of background knowledge about each product and its usage. We all need a little after-glow to start the day, even if no one, uh…um… gave you some last night. Her daytime routine is all about protection, while nighttime is about tricking the clock.
