Winter 2017/2018 Preview November 14 2017
Hello Fashionistas! Hope you are staying warm out there if you are in the NYC area! If you are in LA sooo jelly! Just left there last week and came back with plenty of new inspiration.
Along with a new do done by my lil sister @jacquiefetchhair on IG!!!
Wanted to share some of my ideas for my Fall 2017/2018 new pieces to come! Have been dabbling into some new material. As you already know I LOOOOOVE art and love bright colors along with mixing fabrics and textures throughout my hand crafted pieces.
Came across some very cool textured fabrics in some of the hidden treasure fabric stores in the Garment District in NYC. Also found some fab colored and textured beads!
I have been seeing quartz EVERYWHERE!!! Rocks, rocks, and more rocks, the "druzier" lolol the better.
Started out by making the Moondust choker that's currently up now on the site!
I don't want to give away all of what's in store for the upcoming Winter season . . .BUT I will give a sneak peek on another accessory idea I've been dabbling with . . .
Found a really cool pair at a local shop and added some black and white accents! Stay warm this winter season and stay tuned for more one of a kind pieces to come!!!
Summer Brights! May 28 2016
One of my inspirations for my newest collection Summer Brights is definitely Coney Island and the energy it brings when visiting on a hot summer day, grabbing a hot dog from Nathan's and enjoying the cool breeze off the ocean.
Cooling off in the museum seeing some gorgeous sights, this one is from the Rubin Museum in NYC when I visited a few weeks back . . .
Nature and beautiful colorful flowers that have sprung this Spring. . .
Wares from artisan markets scattered throughout the city . . .
As well as summer fashions from the many shops are also an inspiration.
After seeing these many colorful sights around the city how can one not possibly be inspired to create? So I went to work . . .
Created a few pieces to start and am currently busy designing and creating more pieces for this Summer! Starting with stretch bright blinging bracelets! Some as stacked sets, others sold separately to make a statement on their own or mix and match with others on the site!
Don't forget about the brights already on the site . . .Statement Earrings!!!
Wearable art, hand designed and crafted bracelets with inspiring sayings to make your day a little brighter!!!
Experimenting with handmade tassels and mixed fabric and beads. . .
One of my favorite creations . . .
Thank you for taking the time to see what has inspired me this summer and what my Summer Brights collection holds. Check back to see other pieces that will be added! Check me out on Coney Island rocking the necklace pictured above. Hope you have a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend!

Mixed Metals Fall 2015 September 28 2015
So as I was walking through the concrete jungle I call home in NYC I saw plenty of steel beams, construction scaffolding, brass, along with random regal golden accents . . .I thought to myself why not take the city to my newest collection? That's when I decided to make a beeline for the garment district and explore what kind of supplies are available for mixed metals . . .
I came home with an array of beads, metal findings, charms, lockets, keys, and wire ranging from bright silver, to a sunny gold, to dirty brass mixed with black. I started with the antique inspired pieces
Then moved to some modern bright designs
Some of my favorite pieces from the Mixed Metals collection are shown below.
Hope you enjoyed seeing some behind the scenes and inpiration behind my pieces. Don't forget to stop back to see what newest creations I have designed! New pieces come out often and are one of a kind so don't miss out of your favorite piece today!
Astoria Market September 20 2015
Come check out Uptown Lux at Astoria Market in NYC!
China: Through the Looking Glass, Day at The Met May 24 2015
So as I was wondering the city on my staycation in the city for this beautiful Memorial Day weekend . . . I thought why not make a stop at one of my favorite places in the city . . .The Met of course! A continuing source of inspiration for Uptown Lux, I never leave the museum without tons of photos to reference for inspiration for collections to come. Last night's inspiration comes in the form of beautiful silks, patterns, and prints from many designers, houses, and artistans including Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, and Tom Ford. Below are some of my favorites from the exhibit, not everything of course, come visit NYC to see the rest of the exhibit for yourself!
Join me as I take you on an adventure, China: Through the Looking Glass . . .
First walking into the exhibit I was immediately blown away by an evening gown by Tom Ford for YSL autumn/winter 2004-05 collection . . the bright yellow color made of satin fabric and dramatic red, white, and blue details with sequin embellishments was absolutely amazing, not to mention the contrasting color found within the train of the gown . . .
Next stop is Tom Ford yet again for YSL, this time a bit more classic with black satin and chiffon fabric, autumn/winter 2004-05 collection . . .This gown was my favorite from the exhibit last night, absolutely stunning!
Switching gears a bit, I entered what I referred to as the "Day" room . . .lace and lightweight fabrics combined with beautiful intricate veils and head pieces filled the room with gorgeous finds from talented designers including John Galliano for House of Dior . . .
My favorite piece in this room, ironically, was a gorgeous long black silk evening gown complete with butterfly details down the back, designed by Jean Paul Gaultier autumn/winter 2001-2 . . . Imagine making a statement at your next event or gala in this showstopper!
Last but not least is my favorite day dress of the evening, designed by John Galliano, House of Dior autumn/winter 1998-99. This dress was made from a beautiful yellow silk damask fabric accompanied by luxurious navy, cranberry, gold, black, and white thread embroidery. What I would do to have that dress in my collection!
Ending with my best fashion muse face lol hope you enjoyed my take on the beautiful exhibit at the Met which will be avaiable this summer in NYC through August 16th! Also, don't forget to check back out Uptown Lux end of summer to see what inspiring pieces I crafted from this experience! Xo
Hope everyone has a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend!
Coachella Inspiration . . . May 16 2015
After seeing all of the chic, airy, fun, free-sprited looks that came out of Coachella I was immediately inspired.
What better way to make a "now" statement for SS15 than to make some Coachella inspired pieces for Uptown Lux? So I hit the Garment District in NYC and came back with some fab finds for the next upcoming collection! The materials I came back with are made with beautiful colors, soft fabrics, flowers, brushed gold and silver metals, and inspirational words and phrases loved and cherished by those living every day feeling the LA cool vibe!
Check out some more of what's in the works below!
Stay tuned for the finish product Summer 2015! Xo

Resort 2015 January 24 2015
In preparation for Fall 2015 Fashion Week around the corner, I decided to take a trip down Memory Lane and into Saks Fifth Avenue to explore with some friends. Bundled up and and after my daily dose of Starbucks, the trip was exactly what I needed to get some "warmth" into my life and brighten my day. Upon entering Saks I proceed to the 3rd floor and was greeted by beautiful bright intriguing colors, detailed accents, and garments that were just simply to die for as part of the fabulous Resort and Cruise 2015 collections gracing the floors. Made me want to charter a yacht and head out to a private island somewhere . . .
Photo above from polopixel.com found on Pinterest
After snapping out of my daydream, with a smile on my face, my first stop was the Stella McCartney Resort 2015 collection. I was immediately wow'd by the beautiful colorful stones accenting many of the pieces in the collection. Attention to detail was key! My favorite piece from the collection was the Kasey Dress shown below. Added in the collage are some of my favorite fun, brightly colored Uptown Lux pieces.
Shown above clockwise from top left: Saks Fifth Avenue, Stella McCartney Resort 2015 Kasey Stone-Embroidered Dress; uptownlux.com Uptown Lux various accessories
I then turned my attention, to Moschino. Being bubblegum pink is one of my favorite colors currently, I was hypnotized and like a magnet was drawn into the department. Girly, fun, and flirty are the best ways to describe the current collection represented at Saks.
Clockwise from top right: Saks Fifth Avenue, Moschino SS15 Collection; uptownlux.com, Uptown Lux Pink Clutch, Uptown Lux Pink Drop Necklace; Saks Fifth Avenue, Moschino Pink Clutch from SS15 Runway Capsule Collection, Moschino belts
Going out with a bang, I decided to browse the always chic and timeless Chanel collection. I absolutely adored the bright use of color and hardware in the 2015 Cruise Resort collection. Below clockwise from top left is my favorite piece from the collection found at Saks, along with a closeup of the gorgeous detail and mint buttons used to accent the cardigan. Also shown below are gorgeous samples from our Uptown Lux scarf collection and Multicolor jewel necklace both found at www.uptownlux.com

So the weather is getting colder . . . a chill is in the air. Leaves are beginning to turn colors. Bright orange, red, and yellow; such beautiful colors, can be seen all around us.
Hot chocolate and pumpkin spice lattes are steaming from everyone's To Go cups. Bundling up will soon be the way to go.
These are some of the things that have inspired the Uptown Lux Fall transition collection, Boho Chic. Along with the changing of the seasons, the California cool, laid back look, deep colorful jewel tone hues, floral, and brushed gold were pieces that put together our inspirational puzzle.
Here is a sneak peek from our new Boho Chic collection!
Below are some of our favorite looks pulled right from Pinterest that we have pinned that inspired the collection.
The first screenshot emphasizes beautiful bold color. Images and links below can be found on Pinterest within our Beautiful Colorful Fashion folder on our Uptown Lux Pinterest account.

Gaga for Gold August 24 2014
The air is becoming crisp and the days of August are slipping away. Before we know it Fall will be here. Equipped with a summer glow and bronzed skin what better way than to keep the summer alive by adding a golden touch to your ensemble?
While walking through The Met the other day browsing through an array of vases, tools, and other bronzed ancient home decor, I stumbled on something modern yet golden. What hit me like a ton of bricks, or in this case a pair of fancy golden brass knuckles was the seashells combined with the leaves mixing both Summer and Fall seasons. What a perfect way to transition I thought! Gold! Ps. . . I come in peace . . notice the peace signs and flags ;)
With that in mind I hit my closet looking for a perfect piece to bring out of the archives and I found the fun sequin jacket below of which I paired with a piece from our Summer 14 Collection, the Ivory Jewel Pendant Necklace (seen below). What better way than to spice up your Fall wardrobe with some sparkle and a piece from our collection?
Looking at our Summer collection combined with our transition into Fall collection I pulled out some fun pieces for any fashionista to add to her collection. Whether you like to make a bold statement, or add just a touch of sparkle we have a piece for you!
Shown above from top left: Clear Jewel Chunk Necklace, Gold Iridescent Necklace Set, Gold Chain Triangle Necklace
Trend alert! Add some gold studs, spikes, or gemstones to your outfit paired with denim is sure to be a hit this season! (Clothing and accessories in photograph are from our own personal collection)
Have fun with gold this Fall season . . .we know we will! Shop our collection and see how gaga you become over gold! Happy Shopping!
Splash of Color August 05 2014
It's almost that time again! Time to say "Goodbye" to Summer and "Hello" to Fall. Time for transition, watching the leaves turn colors, and the temperature drop. . .but hold up fashionistas!
Before you eliminate Cold Stone from your life for what seems like forever . . .
Turn that frown upside and take heed! Look closer. What do you see? Besides calories that will cling straight to our thighs?
Color! Beautiful bold color! What looks better on sun bronzed skin than a pop of color?
Color never goes out of style! Ask anyone who has recently made a visit to the Charles James exhibit at the Met and were graced with not only design creativity, style, and grace, but beautiful bold hues of color!
We can effortlessly make our way through decades of style and see that not much has changed.
Do not be afraid to take color above and beyond your comfort zone. Command a room with your fashion ensemble as well as the perfect accessories!
Let's take a closer look . . .
Green and turquoise paired with a fuchsia patterned wrap dress.
Shown above: Half Sun Green with Turquoise Accent Necklace, Green and Turquoise Statement Necklace (Set, comes with matching drop earrings) Wrap dress our own
Partner a bright polka dot print with a bold solid hue necklace in your choice of color. Staying with a solid necklace in this case is key to looking polished.
Seen above: Hot Pink Drop Necklace, dress our own
Do not be afraid to layer necklaces of different materials and hues. The key to achieving the look below is to add a pop of color, in this case a belt, and use that to compliment the look in a necklace as well. Layer with a second piece that matches the hues found in your outfit.
Shown above: Peach and Pink Statement Necklace, complimentary necklace, belt, and dress our own
Other fun pieces shown below: Statement Flower Jewel Necklace, Multicolor Flower Jewel Pendant

Aztec. .More than Just a Print May 31 2014
When you think of Aztec and fashion what do you think of? Your first instinct may be a print, but I'm here to let you know Aztec is more than a print. Check out Uptown Lux's current take on the Aztec trend. We have incorporated print yes, but also a fabulous triangle cutout necklace shown below. And this is just the beginning. Check back to see how we update our line to incorporate more of this trend into our collection. Also, read below to see how we have been inspired to incorporate Aztec into our collection.
I love art . . . and fashion is just that, an art. Fashion and beauty lie in the eye of the beholder. As one to appreciate art I love exploring the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. As I'm exploring I take in my surroundings and let them inspire me to choose how I can incorporate such art into my wardrobe. On a trip to the Met I snapped a few photos and collaged them below of some tribal and ancient art. The blue is just beautiful, and the prints amazing.
Exploring the city further I browsed a few street fairs. Upon browsing I took in all the bright colors. I absolutely love bright colors for Spring, Summer, and Fall transition. Browsing a street fair in New York City, or in any town for that matter, is the perfect way to become fashionably inspired.
On that particular trip, I purchased a handmade bag from a vendor. I fell in love with the bright colors and the Kokopelli print which adorns the bag.
I knew that I needed to incorporate more tribal and Aztec print and inspiration into my wardrobe. I had a meeting to go to so I decided to be daring and wear a strapless black and white jumpsuit, with an ivory crop jacket, black cutout lace low top shoes, accompanied by a snake choker necklace, and triangle drop earrings (All pieces my own). Not exactly Aztec but the inspiration of incorporating shapes and contrasting color was there.
After getting numerous compliments on my ensemble I decided to continue my quest for tribal and Aztec inspired pieces in my exploration of the city. My travels and my Starbucks Caramel Macchiato just happened to lead me down Fifth Avenue from the Met to Saks Fifth Avenue. At Saks I just happened to stumble upon some amazing shoes done by Christian Louboutin.
I must say those shoes are some fabulous inspiration! Take some time to shop around our site. See what inspires you!
