Celebrity Inspired Fall Fashion Looks

I've had multiple requests to do a post regarding fall fashion, similar to my previous fashion/brand name post. See my previous summer fashion post HERE . Every time a new season arrives, I make a list in my phone(i'm a geek I know) and I list all of my must have/next purchases for the season. Most of my looks are celebrity inspired. I frequent websites that break down a celebrities outfit by brand, making it easy to seek these items to purchase. I never purchase anything that isn't on my list. Impulse buys are usually a waste and I never end up wearing the items. I buy one or two things on my list per month (unless the items are inexpensive, then I'll purchase more). Each time I purchase an item on my list, I cross it off and continue to go down my list. This might sound a bit OCD but I'd prefer to have a few key pieces that I LOVE and can wear with multiple looks all season. In my fall fashion post(see HERE) I added a few items on my wish list which included leather pants, helmut lang sweaters, motorcycle boots, fur etc and I've already purchased these items for fall/winter and it's only September lol. If you love fashion as much as I do, try this method and see if it's useful to you!
Here are a few looks  I've put together. Most of these looks I haven't even worn yet but I will definitely be rockin as soon as it cools down and actually looks like fall (I'm so ready for no more sun!!!)

First look is Kim Kardashian in Report Signature OTK boots, Siwy jeans & Paula Bianco Scarf. I've had these Report Signature boots for over two years now and ADORE them. I wear these the most during fall/winter.
Here's my version of the outfit! Report Signature boots, Paula Bianco scarf and Siwy Jeans. One of my favorite items to wear during fall/winter is my Paula Bianco scarves. I have a white and black but I plan on getting a few more colors soon. They are SO comfy, cozy and warm!

I posted this picture in my previous fashion post. Report Signature OTK boots. These boots will be in the majority of my photos. Definitely a favorite of mine. So easy to walk in and looks amazing with any outfit.


YSL logo t-shirt. I love love love this shirt! I`m wearing the same one Justin Bieber is wearing. Black with a black velvet YSL logo.

I LOVE wearing a t-shirt with a blazer and motorcycle boots! YSL logo T, J brand skinny jeans, Hermes belt, H & M blazer, Gucci motorcycle boots

Gucci Edie ankle motorcycle boots. I`m wearing these in the majority of my photos, as I will be all fall and winter. I have a tall pair of coach motorcycle boots but I`ve been obsessing over an ankle pair.

Kim K in Report Signature OTK, black jeans, white blazer & scarf

Here`s my version! Report Signature OTK, J Brand black jean leggings, white Zara blazer and Alexander Mcqueen scarf

Olesya Malinskaya, Russian model and total fashionista. Her wardrobe is unbelievable!
My version. Armani Exchange jacket, Christian Louboutin gazolina OTK boots and leather pants

Helmut lang silk, asymmetrical knit sweater. These were the top items on my list. I`ve purchased two so far and would like to get a few more, preferrably black. I have grey and beige. I love, love love these sweaters. One of my favorite items and will wear these all the time. I love that you can dress them up or down and wear them with multiple different looks.

Here are the two Helmut Lang sweaters I purchased. The only down fall to these is they snag so easy :( I haven`t even worn the one on the right but even just trying it on I`ve already snagged it. They are a silk, knit material so they are very delicate.

Here`s one look with the Helmut Lang sweater. Comfy and dressed down with LNA leggings and Jimmy Choo Uggs. I highly recommend purchasing the LNA leggings. They are on the expensive side(around $100) but worth it. I wear them all the time and they`re still in perfect condition.

I discovered these LNA leggings on Monica Rose`s blog (celebrity stylist) visit her amazing blog HERE
The far right photo of Kim wearing these leggings shows the material best, thick spandex( I don`t know how else to describe it lol)

LNA zipper leggings, this is the pair that I own
rosie huntington-whiteley in helmut lang sweater, leather pants

My version. Helmut Lang sweater, Guess leather pants, Tory Burch flats. I wore a pair of American Apparel leather leggings last year but I prefer the look of leather pants over leggings



Here`s a few differen`t looks, all with the same items. Knit sweaters, leather pants and motorcycle boots(in first pic)


Beige Helmut Lang sweater, Guess leather pants, Gucci motorcycle boots

My version of the photo above. Paula Bianco scarf, Helmut lang sweater, Guess leather pants, Tory Burch flats. I would also wear this look with motorcycle boots.
This is a cute, comfy, casual look. NY hat, Wildfox sweater, LNA zipper leggings, Adidas high tops
Gucci hat, Gucci scarf, LNA leggings, Jimmy Choo uggs.

Celebrities In Jimmy Choo Mandah Uggs. I purchased these last fall and wear them all the time.

Burberry scarf, BCBG sweater, LNA leggings, Sam Edelman jackson OTK boots


Kim K in leopard print blouse and leather pants

My version. BCBG leopard print blouse. Guess leather pants, Christian Louboutin daffodil pumps

Nicole Scherzinger in a lace top, black fur vest, skinny jeans and christian louboutin daffodil pumps
My version. Black lace tallula top(aritzia) Michael Kors faux fur vest, J Brand skinny jeans, Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps


These last two looks are my favorite. Fur vest, printed blouse, leggings and OTK boots. The first look is Kim wearing the Report Signature OTK boots, the second is the Christian Louboutin Gazolina OTK boots
My version. BCBG leopard print blouse, Michael Kors faux fur black vest, Guess leather pants, Christian Louboutin Gazolina OTK Boots.

J Lo in the Gazolina thigh thighs


So that`s a little preview of my fall fashion, celebrity inspired looks. As you can see I wear the same items in different ways to create different looks. That`s why I prefer to spend more on a few key items and get more looks out of one item!

Heiress Swimwear 2013 Collection At Vancouver Fashion Week!!

As most of you can see, this is my new banner for my blog. I'm very proud of my new collection which was showcased at Vancouver Fashion Week on Friday, September 21st.

Let me just start off by saying this show exceeded my expectations by far. I was happy with my show last year but this was honestly amazing. My 2013 collection blows my first two collections out of the water. It's still sexy, but ultra luxurious and glamorous. The two high waisted styles were the biggest hits of the night! I LOVE that high waisted/retro bikinis are back in style!! They are flattering on any shape or size! The accessories that were used this year compliment the bikinis so well. I've used chain in all three collections but for 2013 it looks much cleaner and classier. Simplicity is what makes a bikini sexy in my opinion. All of my bikinis represent that this year. Simple, seamless(this is the first year using a seamless finish and it looks amazing and classic)glamorous, luxurious, sexy and classy.
The feedback backstage, on stage, from the models, press etc was unbelievable. This night meant so much to me and all the wonderful things everyone said made it unforgettable. For a designer and a new business owner, I can't imagine a more effective way to get your name out there. I can't thank Vancouver Fashion Week, Jamal and my models enough for this experience. My models were perfect for my designs. They were beautiful and had perfect bodies!! Complimented my swimwear perfectly. My friends and family being there meant the world to me. I have such an amazing support group around me that makes it all worth it.

I'll be adding photos, videos and any press related material to my blog as I receive it. For now, this is what I've gathered so far.


With my gorgeous, VERY TALL models lol I'm wearing 6 1/2 loubs and I still look like a midget up to them!

Happy girl!

High waisted bottoms with a strapless bra top, adorned with silver studs. The most popular look from the show
Another black, seamless style adorned with silver studs! Halter top with side, tied bottoms

Silver sequin bikini. I used these sequins last year(on showgirl) and the chain(chain reaction) so I thought it would be fun to combine the two! Top is super simple, sliding triangle top to go with the amazing bottoms!
Royal blue halter top with booty short cut bottoms. Adorned with silver, crystal like hardware
Sexy black one piece

Soft purple, strappy bikini.

One of my favorite colors for this year! Teal/mint/turquiose seamless bikini with silver hardware

One of my favorite styles. A gorgeous blue/grey color with silver, crystal like hardware
I have a lot of favorites, but this is one of the top faves! This burgundy color is amazing. It looks perfect with the gold hardware!

Using the same teal color because I love it so much. This chain is the same I used on Temptation last year. Temptation was one of our biggest sellers so I wanted to reinvent it!

This style was another popular one on the runway. This is the same sequin fabric I used on Diva from my 2011 collection but it's my favorite from that collection so I thought it would be perfect for the high waisted look!

I'm probably over using the word favorite lol but the word is completely necessary for this style. So simple yet so classy and sexy! The simplicity of it makes it a favorite of mine.

I created three simple, silk chiffon tunics for this collection. An ombre purple, a black with silver hardware down the front and an open white style (you'll see in the video I'm linking below)


I LOVE this backstage shot!!

And this shot of the models being interviewed backstage!
