Katya Leoncio debuted her newest collection of swimmer for “Dolcessa” at Style Fashion Week LA Friday evening.

Some girls are satisfied with swimsuits made by the masses and sold in major retailers across the country. (Don’t knock a Target Swimsuit until you’ve tried one.) Then there are the girls that only live for the finer things in life. Those girls are most likely destined to be fans of Katya Leoncio’s luxury swimwear line “Dolcessa.” Pronounced Dol-chess-ah, it is a high class swim label that “incorporates European craftsmanship, Italian fabrics, and custom embellishments, accentuated by body flattering silhouettes.” Aka it’s for the girl who takes lounging by the pool as seriously as football enthusiasts take the Super Bowl.

This commitment to flattering a women’s silhouette in the finest fabrics and accented gems is what distinguishes the collection apart from the competition. Perhaps this also is the reason the label has been featured consecutively in prominent publications such as People, Maxim and Sports Illustrated. Umm, and let’s talk a second about those amazing head pieces by Clutch Jewelry! I would want to wear one of those with my gym clothes just because I assume I would feel so epic with a headpiece that grand. But take it from me, sometimes it is possible to go too big with accents and accessories. With this collection however, the styling with the head pieces and other accessories make total sense in the non-over dramatic way. Each and every piece perfectly compliments the bright colors and bold prints of the swimsuits. After all, a girl who seeks the finer things in life traditionally doesn’t shy away from being center of attention. And that is exactly what a girl who wears Dolcessa is destined to be: center stage and perfectly accessorized.

As much as I love getting all dolled up for a red carpet, I was itching to get back to rocking out a good ready to wear outfit. Perhaps its because I’ve been seeing so many promos for Sons of Anarchy (seriously, is it September yet?) But today I was definitely feeling like a rebel without a cause, thus the little motorcycles on my cute little biker shorts. Enough with the cocktail dresses, give me some jeans!

This summer I’ve seized every opportunity to catch up on as many style books as possible. Currently taking up occupancy in my bag is Victoria Beckham’s style book “The Extra Inch.” In addition to reading it in a British accent, I’m actually learning a lot about some of her techniques on looking, and most importantly feeling fab. I never really bothered to affiliate looking good with feeling good, but since taking this advice into consideration I’ve altered the way I shop. Nobody likes admitting they’ve had to go up a size. But alas, I suppose it was bound to happen especially when for most of my life I was a size 24 or still fit into kids clothing (hooray for being short!) So what’s a girl to do when life is telling her to go up a size and her ego says just stick with clothes that say small? Just say screw it all and remove the tag! It’s not like anyone ever walks past you and says that outfit looks fab, what size is it? ┬áThat happens all of never! And I have never been so happy in a pair of jean shorts. Thank you so much for your posh advice Vicky!

“You Can Go Naked, But With The Right Shoes.”

Since I ventured out on this exciting path of being a fashion blogger, I have essentially started taking mental notes of interesting fashion ambassadors if you will. And this woman is no exception.

Labeled the “Lady Gaga of Fashion Week” and more importantly Editor for Vogue, Japan, Anna Dello Russo is the epitome of a fashionista and deserves a shout out. Girl! I like your style. Not only does she own a closet full of haute couture that even Carrie Bradshaw would drool over, she possess a sincere passion and love for every piece she owns. This woman knows her personal style and owns it! And that my friends is what loving fashion is all about. I simply adore her! Not only does she inspire me to save up for the next Paris Fashion Week, but she inspires me to continue investing into this lifestyle of being a fashionista. “Fashion for me is a communication of my soul.” Amen to that!

My favorite part of this interview, the end when she is asked if there was a fire in her building which piece of clothing she would try and rescue. Dello Russo’s response, “I would get the shoes, gold shoes. I tell you dress, I can be naked but with the right shoes.” Classic, answer for a classy gal.
