Fashion Friday: Fashion Week 2015 News, Trends and Highlights

In New York, everything is coming to a close for Fashion Week. But since we are here, and not there, we don’t generally get the news about Fashion Week hounding us like they are in New York and LA, etc.  Unless of course, you are a Fashion Maven like me. I love Fashion. I love hearing about Fashion and I have been to Fashion Week twice now and am dearly wishing I was there again.

 

Since, I can’t, I follow all the fashion news I can. There are a variety of ways to do this, a Google Alert, signing up for Fashion week news. I have been watching and collecting various stories I thought might interest you.

 

What was being talked about

 

A little tidbit of recent info to share that showed up in this news was about Banana Republic who for the first time in a long time, showed up and shined for Fashion Week. Check out the story here, as well as many other stories to follow…

Joint Venture: Daisy Girl Bath and Body/Be Fabulous by Trisha Trixie

I always wanted to have my own line of my scent “Be Fabulous by Trisha Trixie”. It has a luscious scent that is a sensual, feminine, enticing , alluring and beguiling with aphrodisiac and goddess oils hinting at floral notes and a spicy musk.

It is a scent that started long ago. When I was younger, my mother use to have this “Attraction Oil” she called it that she would rub on her wrists and neck before going out or meeting with a client. I loved the way it smelled and how it wafted gloriously through the air after she left the room. When I was older I remember hugging her after getting off the plane to visit and I said “You smell like my mommy!” and we laughed and she asked “What does that mean?” I responded, “That scent, I remember that scent. That is you, that scent reminds me of you!” When we got home she handed me a small bottle and told me it was called “Passion Oil” but it was no where to be found. She called it “Attraction Oil” because it seemed like every time she wore it, she attracted people, things, followers, like a magnet! She said she kept adding olive oil to it to try to make it last longer. Then she gave me the bottle and said, “Here, enjoy. I’ve attracted more than my fair share though I am sure with or without it I will attract more, I always do!” and then we laughed (if you knew my mother, you would know how VERY true that statement is!) . (Also funny is when I had my fiancee’ smell the lotion I created he nearly said the same thing)

For years I carried it around and one day when I was in an eclectic mysteries shop I was perusing and saw some oils. After smelling a few I found some that almost smelled like my moms passion oil. I took them home and made up my own mixture and let it ferment or sit in the dark for awhile. After a few months I opened it and to my happy surprise, I had found the mixture that smelled like my mother’s passion oil.

I bought some tiny bottles and used washi tape around them for decoration and added a cute ribbon and attempted to sell these vials of Be Fabulous scent. But, it didn’t really take off and wasn’t QUITE what I wanted. So I put the oil back under the cupboard and pulled it out every now and then to wear.

Then one day, at a vendor show, I met Carrie from Daisy Girl. She was selling amazing soaps, lotions, candles, etc with these great scents! I bought Little Black Dress scent from her and through the show we chit chatted and  exchanged info. I contacted her to further find out if we could arrange a Joint Venture with my scent to make up some items. She agreed and after discussing back and forth what I wanted, how much scent is needed, Carrie even packaged it , labeled it, and sent it to me. Now we are working on having one of her lip balms customized for me and some wedding favors done for me as well. ( If you are desiring bulk custom orders, contact her, she would be happy to oblige for personal, weddings, business or anything you might need. I know after working with her, she is a great person to work with and does everything she can to assist you.)

Yesterday, I received my FIRST shipment (as I just know I will be ordering more) of my new scent “Be Fabulous by Trisha Trixie” and I am so excited, I squeeeee!!

This scent embodies me in so many ways….

“I am a lover of life. I savor it and I find passion in it. My father passed when I was young so I learned early, life is short, so live it while you can. My biggest inspiration is my mother, who instilled the desire within me to make a positive difference in the lives of those I meet and to leave a positive feeling on the world. There is a song by JJ Heller that talks about living life this way that I made a video of here… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBA1y2WKRx8

“When I leave I want to leave something behind. I want to be known as someone who made a difference. Not something small, but a significant difference. I want to be that person that people remember. I want to be one like my father Art that everyone remembered and none will ever forget. I want to be like my Mother Mary who left a fragance of love and compassion behind her always. Just like the song says… I want to leave my fragrance behind. A positive fragrance that will have touched the world and hopefully your life will be better for being in mine because I made a difference to you 🙂 Someday when this life is over…I’l fly away…I’ll fly away..when I leave…I wanna leave a memory….(Will You Remember Me?)

I want to shine wherever I go. I want to leave a positive fragrance behind. I want to make a difference. I want people to know they can count on me. I want to share my story and my life with others, so that I may help them along their journey. I want to leave a legacy of love. In the end, this is what inspires me the most.”

Mostly the line “I want to leave a positive fragrance behind.” really stuck with me. Anytime after my mother left a room, whether she was wearing her oil or not, people always talked about her, how great she was, how much energy she had, how good they felt about themselves because SHE made them feel that way and they would say…

There is something about her. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but she exudes this way about her, that is simply magnetic and magical, that you are just, drawn to her

 

Many women would hate to be like their mother, but if you tell me that, I find it as a complete compliment! I have lived my life following her guidelines and teachings, her ways and holding to high values and morals like my mother.

This joint venture for my own line is more than just having a line with my scent. It is my vision to honor my mother as well as create a lasting legacy for myself as well. I wish we were able to be closer, talk more and laugh and enjoy life like we used to. However, she lives far away and at over 60 years, my mother is just as energetic and alive as she was when I was younger, busy as well and constantly doing things to help others. As the baby, of course I want her time, but knowing that to this day she still helps others and does everything she can to help her fellow man, I can’t be mad or annoyed at this because I know one day my kids will probably be saying the same. She is my inspiration. She is amazing to me. I honor her in every way. I love her to the moon and back.

To create this line with Daisy Girl is my way to always have my mother with me, in my mind, in my heart in my soul and now, just like she always does, to share my life with others. Life is amazing. It is Fabulous. My mother is Fabulous. I am passing forward from her, to you, this legacy to Be Fabulous, where you go, whatever you do. Now I share the legacy with you…

Like the song says,

I want to leave a legacy of love,

I want to leave my fragrance behind 

Be Fabulous
