Five Reasons You Should Attend The 2016 Shuzz Fashion Show 


The annual Shuzz Fashion show is quickly approaching and being that we have been fans ever since the first time we have covered the fashion-filled night, we have compiled a few reasons as to why you don’t want to miss this year’s show, which will be taking place at The Seminole Casino on March 12th at 7 p.m. with featured designers Veronica Beard.

1. Over-the-top fashion

From live performances to runways with jets as backdrops, everything about a Shuzz fashion show is over the top especially the style. Our first time attending the show we were wowed by Zac Posen’s latest collection of gowns as they glided down the runway. The organization has had our loyalty ever since.

2. A night filled with bubbly

General admission tickets include a cocktail reception that you don’t want to miss.


3. You get to give back in style

Proceeds from the show go directly back into providing children with shoes all over the world. So you can take comfort in the fact that as you enjoy a night of style and cocktails, you are giving to a worthy cause.


4. The record speaks for it self

In our opinion, there has never been a dull year. Each year appears to be better than the previous year. From an intimate affair at Jet Cafe to Mizner park to the latest confirmed location The Seminole Casino in Coconut Creek, everything from the venue to the amazing sponsors come together seamlessly to create a night you don’t want to forget.

5. Shuzz is an amazing organization taking on a worthy cause.

“SHUZZ (pronounced shoes) is a South Florida based non-profit organization that functions off of support from volunteers only, existing to provide new shoes to children in poverty-stricken areas around the world. We distribute thousands of shoes free of charge to children – regardless of race, religion, class or any other criteria – who are in need of a very basic tool to prevent them from risk. Their needs are simple: a pair of shoes that fit properly. This helps protect from injury and prevent disease, enhancing safety when playing, doing chores and going to school.

When Rita Lombardo founded the SHUZZ Fund, she made a promise that she would use 100 percent of public donations for shoe distribution projects. We find other ways to cover operating expenses to ensure our 100% Model. We depend on private donors, foundations and sponsors to cover staff salaries, basic office systems, office rent and supplies, etc. These donors are some of the most dedicated people we’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. Their investments fuel our long-term mission and our ability to scale as an organization, allowing us to remain true to our mission of using 100 percent of public donations for shoe projects.”

YOUR WORDS, NOT MINE: MSNBC Host’s Rhetoric Questionable

Editor's Journal, News


In an odd segment of HARDBALL, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews asked “Who wants to watch a debate with the two cubans (Cruz and Rubio)” when responding to news that Donald Trump was threatening to pull out of the next Fox News Debate, scheduled for Thursday 1/28/16. The segment was noticeable as Mathews, who has been accused of disrespecting prominent women in the past, also seemed to bull-doze a female colleague reporting live from a Donald Trump Rally. The host repeatedly spoke over the reporter, cutting her off at various points. Mathews went on to use what could be deemed an offensive term when referring to Presidential Contender Ted Cruz and his closest senatorial colleague, Mike Lee. Matthews referred to Lee as Ted Cruz’s Sancho Panza (the name of the squire and help meet in Don Quixote). The hosts interviewee retorted to Mathews “those are your words, not mine”. Why, Mathews chose to use repeatedly ethnic references when speaking of Cruz is up to individual interpretation.

Editor's Journal, Fashion, Featured

Olive + Piper, a fun and playful online jewelry boutique and collection, started from a dream and a few risky decisions. Founder Tania Yan grew up as a quiet and artistic young child, immersing herself in her studies, ballet, singing and piano. Like most young girls, Tania made her own beaded accessories, including jewelry and headbands, to express her own individual style. Taking a detour in college, Tania found herself studying cell biology and genetics, and it wasn’t until after graduation where she worked at a large ecommerce company that Tania was inspired to work with fashion jewelry. With a desire to start her own business, a personal fashion blog and a passion for designing, Olive + Piper was born.

imageOlive + Piper officially launched in October 2012, selling curated pieces made ethically in China. But Tania soon developed a bigger dream, a dream to design her own pieces.

All pieces are inspired by Tania’s every day life, including color schemes or patterns she is exposed to.

Channel Your Inner ‘Mad Men’ Character with the Vivienne Pash Collection

Fashion, Featured

imageBy: Nina Monroy




It’s time to bring back the 60’s; fashion that is. We’re talking knee length dresses, skirts and shorts, midi belts and big collars. Vivienne Pash brings these styles back to women, leaving all that other 60’s “men are in charge” nonsense behind. Women are bigger, better and bolder today – just like her SS 16 collection.
As a Jamaican native, Pash grew up surrounded by delicate materials, draping everyone in their own way. Inspired by the different elements that come together to make a garment, Vivienne began sewing pieces for her life-sized doll. Taking motivation from this, she decided to begin creating her own personalized collection. After fashion school, New York became home for the creation of her line. “I brought my designs to life because they deserved to be seen,” Pash explained.
Right she was; her line has become a conversation starter. What sets Vivienne Pash apart from other designers is that she does not follow any trends and creates her own classic sets of garments for today’s fashion. Inspired by style icons like Twiggy and Tilda Swinton, the feel she exerts from her clothing is of a fashion risk-taker. Her designs are bold, simple and dynamic.
Meant to stand-out, the first official collection launched is heavy on black and white with some coral, grey and nude accents sprinkled around each corner. The dresses, skirts, tops and pantsuits are classy punk with a full-on retro vibe. Classic-cool, Breakfast at Tiffany’s anyone? Stepping out in the fan-favorite being the polka dot pantsuit with a midi tie belt would sure make a mother proud.
Cropped tops are seen everywhere, but not like this. Made with bold fabrics, each are simple and outlined perfectly along the shoulders and collar. The statement pieces will be sure to catch an eye along the way to work, lunch or a night out on the town. Major street style. With features on Vogue.com, we will be sure to see more of Vivienne Pash along the way.
The pieces can be worn individually or together, each making a statement on the sleek, classy, modern lady. Fitting each woman comfortably throughout her day, the clothing is made with cotton, silk, scuba, chiffon and jersey knit materials.
Pash inspires us to channel our inner ‘Mad Men’ self to take the more refined style of the 60’s American upper-class to our day-to-day wear. She also reminds us how much fun fashion can be. The prices for her collection range from $59.00-$800.00, it is available at ViviennePash.com.
