This holiday season Escape Artist bracelets were featured in the “Working Your Style” segment, hosted by fashion, beauty & lifestyle expert Daisy Lewellyn for Black Enterprise. Lewellyn shows us how to put together last-minute unique gift baskets including wine selections from Bed-Vyne Wine, and chic homeware finds on a budget.

One of my dear friends of several years just happens to be the “Queen of Effortless Chic”, Ms. Daisy Lewellyn (yea, I’m bragging. She’s so fly though!). “Daze” – as some choice friends call her after an unforgettable South Africa trip (inside joke) – has returned to New York from her LA hiatus to do another one of her fabulous style segments. Thankfully the two of us could catch up and do some good ole’ NYC “arts & culture” day drifting through Meatpacking and Chelsea…we met at Chelsea Market and couldn’t resist popping into Anthropologie…they always look AMAZING!!and what would an afternoon outing be without cocktails & lunch at La Bottega?off to see some art (at a gallery), but nyc street art catches us along the wayand finally we arrive to the main event: the Malick Sidibe’ exhibit at Jack Shainman Gallery. Daisy did a whole exhibit day (coming from the Met earlier to check out “Savage Beauty” while in town), and Sidibe’ is one of my all time favorites! The only thing that could’ve made us girls happier is if some generous donor would have stepped in and bought us everything off of the walls for our own collections…a girl can only dream!
At the top of this new year I was fortunate enough to be a guest at the OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) launch brunch in Los Angeles. A dear friend and talented producer – JaSaun Buckner, hosted a select group at the kick-off of the much-anticipated network.
We got a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the OWN offices, which were decked in the brand colors of purple, green and orange and included inspirational affirmations in unexpected places. Messages like; “boldness has genius, power and MAGIC in it” and “whatever you can do or DREAM you can, begin it” are indicative of the positive atmosphere that the network has set out to produce in both content and environment. There’s already been a positive buzz about programs such as “Masterclass”, which takes an intimate look at the life and times of celebrities from Diane Sawyer to Jay Z.
and of course there was fashion! From beauty & style expert – Daisy Lewellyn‘s cotton candy turban, paired with chic neon toned knits to the intriguing pick-stitched and studded blazer worn by a random stylish security employee, the color palette and fashion was a great kick off to a delicious 2011!
