Isossy children clothing with dirty celebrity jewelry

Isossy Children creates global awareness for children by mixing textiles with bright colors and bold prints. The designer of the brand, Amanda Rabor attributes her global awareness to her parents raising her in different countries notably UK (london) and the U.S. (New York). Since its launch in 2010, both locations have embraced the brand.

Isossy Children was part of the global children’s fashion week in London last year and the online store was shortlisted as “Online Retailer of the year” by a prominent children’s wear magazine. The success of the brand has made the industry recognize Amanda Rador’s talent as well.

Amanda Rador honoured as fashion designer in 2013 and 2014 for
Women 4 Africa and the GAB Awards respectively in the UK. Still, the best part of the brand is that it is active in increasing children’s global awareness by launching its own campaign ‘I AM POSSIBLE’ in 2013 which saw amazing young global citizens sharing their passions with us online. For Amanda Rador, she sums up what she wants her brand to say:

My ‘Ted Talk’ to kids would be around self acceptance, the importance of self love, understanding diversity in these global times and embracing what’s already around them.

I wasn’t too sure I would like this new trend as I always think of Sport Slide sandals as bulky and unflattering and something only skate guys or jocks wear; so when Victorias Secret Pink gave away a pair with a $50 I jumped at the chance to try their updated version, (which is a sleeker slightly wider version in pops of color with “PINK” written across the front) It was love at first sight;  and now I am obsessed as they look so cute thrown on with skinny jeans and a tee or even with a jersey maxi skirt! Now I am seeing more feminine versions everywhere so here are my picks!

I was soo excited when I walked into Macy’s and feast my eyes on a gorgeous Linen backpack (that I thought was straw) from Lucky Brand that I quickly snapped it up and now use it almost everyday! I was so happy to see another style that can be used for Summer and all your Boho styles besides the ever popular straw tote! These backpacks make you feel like your traveling through some exotic local and they are roomy and go with anything! So I scoured the Internet to find others in raffia and straw materials as well.. enjoy the #bagporn !!

Style file: Boho Romo

Bohemian Romance has slowly creeped into the our minds with the slow addition of lace and flowing dresses we have seen from such designers like Rachel Zoe, Rebecca Taylor and others. The look adds elegance to the carefree spiritualism of bohemian fashion.

image

Clothes

Most clothes of this style has flowing sleeves, crochet detail, lace and bold floral prints. The design always flows and there is nothing tight or figure grabbing. No spandex or polyester blends here.

image

Accessories

Sandals are a must and the strap kind not slingbacks. A little heel is fine. They should be earthy tones and not bright colors. Jewelry is simple chain and cord combinations similar to bohemian styles seen in every store. Satchels are the preferred bag shape but totes can also be used.

image

Hair

Braids are a must-have to complete the look. The messier the braid the better to fit into the carefree lifestyle.  Floral hairpieces are bolder; going beyond the flower reef we know as a bohemian staple. 

Let us see your bohemian romance looks on Instagram with #bohoromo and we will pick the best ones to feature on our new blog url, thefashiongoddessnyc.com.

We reported last week that Charming Charlie, a mega accessories store located mainly in the South and Midwest, was no longer opening their NY flagship store after we noticed the pink wrapper was removed from the store front. Oddly, two days ago, @charm_charlie  (the instagram handle for Charming Charlie) announced a   contest to win a shopping spree in June and July at their “5th ave” flagship store.  We also stated another smaller store on the next block was being renovated. There are no coincidences. Evidently, they switched to a smaller store and pushed the opening 2 to 3 months. Stay tuned for pics of the possible store location in our instagram account – thefashiongoddessblog.

Update: In response to my twitter post, Charming Charlie has given a store open date of May 26. Location still unknown.

We all love the dadbod movement but we can not help but notice actors like Seth Rogan (“dadbod” pioneer) playing opposite a thin woman who somehow bore three kids and still looks like she stepped off the pages of playboy magazine. Or did she outsource her pregnancy to him? I mean look at his wife!
image

The “mombod” composed of muffin top or small tummy, thick thighs and droopy breast has never gotten any love. Women are forced into spanxs, and pushup bras so why shouldn’t men have the same ordeal?Are we really a double standard community where we approve of men being lazy and shun women for having children?

I am a single, non off-spring producing female who would get and has gotten beef for hating the gym. I assure you a “dadbod” male would not get caught with a “mombod” girl who hasn’t had kids. I mean look at Seth Rogan’s wife…

image

In case you do not feel like scrolling up again. I am just saying if I appreciate “dadbod”, will he in turn appreciate me?

Weight in below and let us know!!!
