Sultry Simple Style!

Even good girls can do it!

Sultry Olivia Swiadek

Rock stars made faux fur, edy look famous. But torn fishnets and battered six-string aren’t prerequisites for the sexy, rock glam look.

Winter White and Blush

Model Olivia Swiadek

Even the most clean-cut can simply tone down the color (do it in blush or pure white) and rein in the faux fur stardom and the attitude. This all-winter, light-glam look flatters almost everyone. The make up should look natural, and hair should be down and free. This is a perfect night out look so skip heavy boots and instead wear nude sandals or pumps to keep the mood soft.

Why did I pick this particular jacket? Just when I thought I had the hemline thing down and that I possessed a certain eye for proportion, a new, hot silhouette that I suddenly can’t live without had appeared: the half jacket. Half the coverage, double the exposure :) That is if you like bare midriffs of course! While it looks like a slashed jacket, it most definitely isn’t. And I am in love!

Check out BCBG faux fur jacket that Olivia is wearing, it makes the white cropped trousers look that much racier. It would also look fierce with a tight skirt and top. So flaunt your assets- but don’t think that just because half the jacket is missing, it will cost half the price.

Chloe Smith: Beautiful and Magical

An unexpected crowd is usually enough to pause or even shut down the photo shoot that requires a little bit of focusing, especially when you are working with limited space. But while photographing models in the warm, velvety Chocoloate Lab in Bethlehem we were greatful for the gorgeous backgrounds and managed to work around the frequent crowds. Place gets really busy quick and we’re not surprised!

Out On A Balcony

In a fall season that is going to be packed to the rafters with references to the Mod era, it’s only natural that we linger just a little bit longer in summer, Hamptons-like style moments.

Out on a balcony

Summer was all about long skirts. Cropped tops were indispensable because they continued the line or color of a high waisted pants or maxi skirts.

For this look, AFP didn’t have to look elsewhere- we dipped into Free People’s and BCBG collections for inspiration. We decided to go for some doses of black and white.

However, it was through Danika’s make up work that this look received the boldest blast of high-octane color: rasberry lips looked extremely sexy with almost blinding white skirt and ribbed jet black top.

High above bustling streets of Bethlehem, PA, our team with John Rounds, our photographer and makeup artist Danika Clevenstine, and of course our beautiful model Chloe Smith was enjoying another amazing photo shoot.

A great photo captures such light and depth that you can never tire of looking at it.

Discovery runs through the fashion stylist’s veins but also it runs right through photographer’s lens! It’s that sense of discovery that’s important to my work.

These days my styling emphasizes balance, from symmetrical to bold-style.

Back to this outfit. This season the ribbed knit material is getting an update for a more polished flair. So forget strict stripe, rainbow styles and opt for sleeker lines and a more minimal look.

How can you turn this look into a full fledged early fall outfit? Add adidas superstar sneakers and ADIDAS ORIGINALS BY ALEXANDER WANG

Photo Ready

I look forward to writing this blog every month. And I am deeply disappointed that I have missed couple of months. Fashion styling business can become very intense at times and lately it's been especially crazy. 

We're back at our favorite vintage spot in downtown Bethlehem; The Attic, and still with our lovely model Faith Garavaglia. As usual, I was stunned by the beautiful photographs by John Rounds. 

untitled-3022-8.jpg

I was also enthralled by the edginess and raw passion that leaped off Faith's outfit that she picked out herself.  In photos of Faith striking a pose, John Rounds offers the most startling and compelling images of any fashion blog today. 

untitled-3022.jpg

"If you've got it, flaunt it," is the motto of this particular photo-shoot. And "flaunt it" she did, showing that women continue to find distraction, indulgence, perhaps even solace, in uniqueness of vintage fashion. And this time, our joy is all about this dress by Romeo and Juliet. 

untitled-3024-2.jpg

Faith's outfit is a pitch for the party girl in modern/industrial mode.  We're shifting from spring's palette of pale, dusty shades to a moody black and from frocks with major flow to a highly constructed shillouettes. 

untitled-3025-2.jpg

In fact, strong boho inspired silhouettes were a big theme behind 2018 Fall Fashion shows. Brands like Self-Portrait, Balmain or Tom Ford appreciate the value of more and kind of fashion that can exude modern and futuristic romanticism. 

If you are one of these girls looking to deliver controlled fashion drama just start by eliminating multiple chiffon layerings in favor of chic tailoring in black. 

untitled-3024.jpg

Other elements to look for in the near future are black lace, white satin embroidered with flowers, studded black leather- capturing moods from elegance to S&M.

As always the result of our creative collaboration with our wonderful make-up artist Danika Clevenstine, photographer John Rounds and super talented model Faith Garavaglia was a fabulous photoshoot.

Once again we need to acknowledge The Attic boutique for letting us roam their wonderful and chic supply of magical clothes and accessories. Everybody who loves vintage treasures will go gaga over The Attic's selection, and here we're making it official.

70s Dreamin'

The Attic's amazing clothing and accessories collection isn't the only reason we should be forgiven for having an attack of Seventies deja vu. 

December 2017

A decade that’s been revitalized time and time again on the runway, 1970s fashion was courageous and inflated in a good way.  And this year's 70s influence in fashion was a treat, as usual. 

pop tarts

Nevertheless, it seems to me that it is a very trying time for some of the designers who are trying too hard to reinvent themselves this time around, but trying to win consumer's sympathy as well.  So if something feels too manufactured and prescribed to me, I am just not buying it.  I like pulling trendy pieces from the past decades but I do like to keep it as natural and unforced as possible. 

ice storm

J'adore J.Crew's sheer genius! From the sublime to the meticulous, their trousers- once out of favor- are captivating again.  Long, cropped, striped and spotted, chic, gloriously high-profile trousers peppered department stores earlier this year in variations that delivered raw feminism, charm or sporty flair. 

 

Below are just few of our favorite picks:

Trousers Affair

At A Fashion Page, vivid color and balancing proportions were the focus of this photo-shoot by John Rounds; we emphasized color with playful, cropped pants, and went characteristically steamy with ultrasexy graphic top and leather jacket.  

Tennis shoes have been neglected in the past few years. Now they're not so simple or straightforward. They're more evolved, with fur trim, chunky hardware or lacing. 

Few of our favorites below:

Top Row: ADIDAS,  Seychelles ,  Nike ,  River Island ,   Bottom Row: Dune London,  Ed Ellen Degeneres,  Aerin,  Cole Haan

certainly hot

Certainly, our love affair with the three-quarter-length sleeve or half sleeve lends itself to a stylish leather jacket- it's the perfect way to top off a unconventionally ladylike look. But pastel color- mint- or a graphic pants pattern provides a fresh take. At the same time, supersleek, cropped leather jacket can turn up the sex appeal of a graphic Tee or flirty top. 

It's a return to elegance.  Current runway fascination with past and lost decades is a reintroduction of a lost sophistication and an opportunity for a younger generations to enjoy classics.

Let's not forget that fashion is all about fun.  It is bringing the whimsy back to our life.
