"Reflections of Creativity"

Hello again to my runway rippers, just want to encourage your creative sides today. Beauty is found in our uniqueness and charm. Once you open yourself to what might be, you can be! In other words your creative side opens doors to a mirrored world that wants to reflect color, difference, and a sight that has never been seen. So I encourage you to go  into your closets, dare to shop into a local boutique and mix up your life with vibrance and creativity. Because it's your scene, your moment, your pavement. Now Rip It!

Block Runway Features "The Flip"

   "Get It While It's Hot"

      Block Runway features
The Flip-A Convertible Shrug Dress

Now I 'fave' this piece for it's one piece with many possibilities. Every girl should have this apart of their fall wardrobe collection, so ladies get it while it's hot. I simply love designer Lauren Urstadt of New York. She invented this look and has ripped the "Block Runway" with many of her collective pieces.

From the Designer,

 "The Flip", is a unique hand knit item which had to be Patented because of so many other designers checking this out.This item is not only an accessory that can be worn as a shrug, or hood, or simply a cowl neck-but if flipped upside down, you can wear it as a dress! Yes, a dress.....see all the images on how to
wear it and the image of our press we got in Lucky Mag.

Once again, another unique product created on one of those creative and wild nights in the home of Lulu and Shash!

Sizes avail: Small/ Med, and Med/ Large. May I recommend that if you are tall and want to wear as a dress, please go for the med/large, because there is more length to this one.

Purchase yours today ar:  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_1&listing_id=32299720

Shorty Clothing

        Block Runway Features

"Shorty Clothing"

~About Shorty~

 I enjoy this designer because of her Urban Couture appeal. Her items can be found on a blcok near you, magazines and various boutiques.

1. A girl/woman, an attrac­tive woman with atti­tude.

2. An attrac­tive woman that you want to meet.

3. A vibrant, pio­neer­ing star brand that goes to great lengths to cel­e­brate and inspire effort­less glamour.

Shorty’s mis­sion is to inspire effort­less glam­our. We cre­ate well-fitting, impec­ca­bly made cloth­ing with thought­ful atten­tion to detail. Our style is inspired from by-gone eras, our her­itage, pop cul­ture — such as movies, clas­sic icons and music. Most impor­tantly, we are inspired by each other.

When a woman wears Shorty, she feels gor­geous, glam­ourous and totally put together. The brand illu­mi­nates the essence of who we are. It is a lifestyle, a way of being, a van­ity affair.

Shorty gives us the oppor­tu­nity to project what we love, and who we want to be.
