Going Purse-less

IMG_4180

Recently I’ve noticed a surge of women not taking to purses, leaving more at home, and only bringing essentials. You may think the items in my photo below are my essentials. They are not actually. Or the cigarette box and lipstick are not, haha. The box and lipstick are shipping necessities for the Motovest. As […]

Wine & Scrape

IMG_4120

Didn’t feel like taking out my cheese board last night….And I’m this close to drinking wine out of solo cups (not like I haven’t done it before) but I’m scared I might offend some readers… I have this cheese wheel that I’ve used before. It sits inside my fridge, wrapped in a garbage bag. Whenever […]

Leather Scarf

DSC_0122

I’m still on the hunt for concise ways to style for fall. And my focus is now around the neck. I knew that a leather scarf would be a necessity for my wardrobe, but design wise I had to come up with a concept. In my last post, someone left a comment about how the […]

Modern Wedding Ideas

IMG_4016

My mother and I text quite often, now it’s gotten to the point where she sends me pics of food all day long. (ANNOYING, mom)…but then she also sends me pics of cool things too. She recently went to her friend’s daughter’s wedding, and they had a modern setup. My mom of course immediately sent […]

Black Crocodile

DSC_0425

This updated design is another spinoff on those crocodile bags, remember those? When I went to Staples for inspiration? Well this time I had to go all black on black on black, with those crocodile style wallet necklaces… Now I had to follow a similar design strategy to that same post, to treat this crocodile […]

Weekday Entertaining

DSC_0298

So it’s after 7, you’ve had it with just about everyone and everything. You wonder, I’m going to have to repeat the same set of actions tomorrow, and just the thought of that may haunt you on your commute back home. If you are planning to have friends over for the night, that just may […]

Nude on Nude

IMG_3684

Recently I experienced a really nice coincidence of sorts. This Celine shirt has this nude strip running down the center front closure, and of course I had to pair my harness in raw leather (also nude) with it. And on top of that my friend created some artwork for my Rick Ross album (but actually […]

Chinese Take-out

DSC_0349

Yes you heard it here first. My favorite fast chinese dish is not something you’ll find at your regular old americanized take out joint. Lo mein, chicken with broccoli and moo-shu pork, easy to find. This dish I’m preparing now, Dried bean curd with yellow chives and pork is one of my ABSOLUTE favorite chinese […]

Netted & Pleated

DSC_0432

Took the liberty of taking a pleated knee length skirt and just wearing it as a mini dress. The nice thing about this harness is that it gives the dress straps and an empire silhouette which I really like. Just for the sake of harnessing a lumpy tent shape… Unfortunately this Luxirare cage purse below […]

Harness Remix

DSC_0265

I meant to include this 2nd way of styling these harnesses, but it was a photo overload. I think I’m done with posting 9 million photos in one post, unless I really have to. This one includes one of my absolute favorite blazers by Raf Simons. Truly brilliant the way he has the lapel tucked […]

Luxirare Harnessed

DSC_0284_2

After experiencing the reaction for the minivests a while ago and how well they were doing in the shop, I had to introduce something similar but maybe even more reduced in design. Starting off very slow, simple, and casual here. ¬†One of the first requests I received after presenting these minivests were to re-produce them […]

Luxirare Motovest via Alexandra Spencer

Miss Spencer’s photo (above). I just had to share these photos self styled and shot by Alexandra of 4TH&BLEEKER. This might be a strange coincidence but I’ve been meaning to reshoot this vest because it is one of my favorite pieces that I’ve not been able to wear as much…And what do you know… I […]

Love to take my time with certain projects but I also like how Instagram moves like lightning. Photo above, fried oysters with a kewpie mayo based salad at Goat Town in the East Village. They were really delicious. And the salad had fennel in it, oysters + fennel = perfection. To the right my friend’s […]

Hooters: the new work lounge

DSC_0342_2

The last place I want to go nowadays for work outside of the studio is Starbucks. Sometimes I like to be outside of the studio to do some work, it is nice to be surrounded with a couple of friends, check e-mail, show each other stuff… This time I was uptown for some meeting and […]

iPhone Wallet Necklaces

DSC_4087

It has been quite a long time since I first thought of the idea behind this post. Do you remember when Steve Jobs passed? (Yes that was rhetorical, sorry)…. I planned on doing this whole tribute post, designing accessories around all of the beautiful gadgets he’s created. But I can’t rush such things, everything needs […]

Mobile Accessory

DSC_0407_2

When I first created this wallet necklace style, I just had one simple idea in mind. To find a solution for a personal problem of mine. Always running around like a crazy person, or working like a crazy person, I need to have important things like a credit card, keys, and cash close by. And […]

World of Whiskey and Leather

Lapel cut with perforated leather. Ever since this post, I’ve been getting requests for that particular style jacket. The thing with this first draft of the quilted biker jacket was that, well it was a rough draft. There were details I wanted to edit and comb over perfectly. And yes because I know that there […]

What is it about dogs that makes you feel like everything will be okay when you come home completely stressed and drained from work? My dog, she is always home to greet me with a wagging tail and genuine happiness. Humans don’t act this way, we tend to conceal our emotions, or we exaggerate them […]

Breakfast with Luxirare (Recession Style)

IMG_1261

Ikea food, what can I say? The only place that is less expensive than McDonalds. Ikea is probably one of the most powerful brands in the world, I’d have to say in terms of power, McDonalds takes the cake, but just imagine how many young struggling families Ikea has helped, from couples who have had […]
