The One Designer Laptop Accessory Every Girl Needs This Christmas

December 15th, 2014 by Christen Rochon

If you’ve recently purchased a new smartphone, next generation tablet or laptop then chances are – you’re looking for stylish designer accessories that will protect your tech and reflect your sense of style.  I truly believe that a woman’s technology collection is an extension of her personality and I take accessorizing my gadgets very seriously! (LOL)  Did you know that many of your favorite designers are taking their talents to technology? Designers like Kate Spade, Nanette Lepore, Ana Sui and Isaac Mizrahi have a bevy of “techcessories” for every fashionable techie on and off the runway.  Discover one of my favorite designer laptop accessories and see why it’s the designer laptop accessory every girl needs this Christmas below.

I found the CFDA designer collection of accessories at Best Buy and I just couldn’t resist a new Isaac Mizrahi gold trim laptop sleeve for my MacBook Air.  When it comes to durable accessories that can protect my investment (plus add a little style to my closet) – this is it!  Not only is it a chic sleeve but it can also work with practically any look as a stylish oversized clutch bag.  (In the clutch, you better believe I’ll wear this as a cute envelope clutch bag and go!)

Undoubtedly, what I love most about this laptop sleeve is the distinct details.  From the gold trim zipper to the gold zipper handle “I” – everything about this accessory compliments the overall sleek style that any girl wants to have while traveling with her laptop in tow.  Leave the briefcase and big totes behind when you’re carrying this sleeve (I mean, something as chic as this deserves to be out and center, relishing in all the attention that it deserves.)

Even if color is your thing, the Issac Mizrahi laptop sleeve offers a bevy of floral colors on its interior padded pocket, and also comes in vibrant pink and black with gold polka dots.  All three designs/colors are available for $39.99 and makes the perfect stocking stuffer gift for any stylish girl on your holiday gift list.

 

In addition to stylish laptop sleeves, Isaac Mizrahi, Ana Sui, Kate Spade and Nanette Lepore has a variety of smartphone cases and tablet covers for the iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S4/s5, iPad mini and more!  Discover more CFDA Designer smartphone accessories you can only find at Best Buy online and in store and buy it in time for Christmas today!

Keeping My Holiday Style Chic Without Breaking The Bank With Dryel

December 10th, 2014 by Christen Rochon

Let’s face it!  Holiday season is great time of the year!  It’s actually one of my favorite times of the year simply because everyone is so hopeful, cheerful and the bounty of holiday parties are endless.  Keeping up with the holiday invites and chic attire can be a challenge during the holiday season.  You have to make strategic style choices that keep you looking fabulous while avoid overspending on new holiday-inspired fashion and mountainous dry cleaning bills at all costs.  That’s why I’m so happy to share my secret to looking amazing during the holiday season, as an official brand ambassador for Dryel I’ve been able to save, while keeping stylish all season long!

Dryel

With brand new red packaging and a new, improved bag Dryel is the go-to for every stylish girl on the go this season!

 

Dryel is the at-home dry cleaner that uses the power of steam to clean and deodorize clothing – all in your own dryer.  The patented Dryel cleaning system truly fits my on-the-go lifestyle!  From last minute travel, to dressing for a special occasion Dryel quickly refreshes and renews clothing in as little as fifteen minutes.  Dryel safely and thoroughly cleans clothes, protects colors and preserve shape without using any harsh chemicals.

 

Dryel

Dryel can be used on most dry clean only items, but its also great for cleaning other items like stuffed animals, table linens and more.

 

I love mixing and matching patterns, textures and colors – all in the name of holiday fashion and with Dryel quick cleaning, it makes remixing looks easier than ever.  Dryel is definitely my secret for keeping my looks fabulous all season long. The starter kit (MSRP: $6.99) cleans up to 10 garments while the refill (MSRP $8.99) cleans up to 30 garments – cleaning my favorite sequin and satin frocks for a fraction of the cost of a typical dry cleaner.

Not only do I use Dryel to clean and freshen up hard to clean frocks, but it works wonders on eliminating wrinkles in hard to iron pleated skirts/dresses and livening compacted clothes fresh out my suitcase too!  Can you believe my favorite sequin dress went from suitcase-to-camera ready in minutes?

 

Christen Rochon Dryel Ambassador

From holiday parties to filming on set – Dryel keeps my favorite clothes looking camera ready, no matter what!

 

Dryel is easy to use, cost effective and it extends the life of your closet – what more could you ask for?  Clothes look newer, longer, with no fading, shrinking or stretching.  You’ve seen how I keep my holiday style chic without breaking the bank with Dryel, now how about you?  You can find Dryel At-Home Dry Cleaner at retailers like Walmart and Target or get social and connect with Dryel on Facebook and Pinterest today.

The New Apple Watch Lands On The Cover Of Vogue

October 16th, 2014 by Fashion Staff

If you wondered if Apple’s newest venture in fashionable technology would be accepted by the fashion industry, your answer is here!

There are actually two mega stars on the cover of Vogue China’s November issue. There’s supermodel Liu Wen, one of the world’s highest-paid models and Victoria’s Secret star, and then on her left wrist, the Apple Watch.

Check out the cover shoot below, after all, it might be the frontrunner for the most wearable of the high-end techcessories we’ve seen so far.

 

apple watch

 

 

On the November Vogue China cover, the gold Apple Watch is styled with minimal accessories, and with its colorful interface, it definitely stands out and holds its own. Wen appears to be wearing the 18-karat yellow gold Edition Apple Watch, which features a red Modern Buckle Band. She’s also featured wearing other Apple Watch models on a spread inside the magazine.

The smaller 38-millimeter timepiece+ is outfitted with a thin red band to coordinate with the bold Ikat-style stripes on Wen’s Céline shirt dress, which earns it points for personalization — remember, this wearable broke from the one-style-suits-all camp with its collection of customizable, interchangeable bands. But what really wows us is its overall ability to fit right in with a cover-worthy ensemble.

 

 

According to Vogue, it’s definitely a step above many wearables on the market today, but could you see yourself wearing the stylish smart watch daily?  Share your thoughts on the Apple Watch and the cover below.

Sharing #StyleOn10 Moments With Iman Cosmetics and HelloBeautiful.com

September 18th, 2014 by Christen Rochon

Christen Rochon

 

Recently, I was asked by my good friend Ty of HelloBeautiful.com to spill the beans on my style and beauty secrets. Upon arrival we talked about the importance of beauty from head to toe as well as how to transform office chic looks into after work flyness. We laughed, danced to ratchet music and had a blast during the photo shoot for Iman Cosmetics.

Since I don’t have a typical office-wear wardrobe, (My real-life office wear consisted of a rainbow of Calvin Klein shift dresses and suits from The Limited.) I really enjoyed showing off my double-duty style and how I can take two very different office looks from daytime to night.

 

Office Wear – Day

 

office wear Christen Rochon

Dress:  JoyTheStore.com

Cardigan:  Express

Necklace:  H&M

Watch: Michael Kors

 

One of my favorite pieces found over the pond was this lace and pleated chiffon dress I found in London a few summers ago. I love how the feminine elements of lace and chiffon paired with the baby-doll cut exudes “girly-girl” to the tenth power. I added a jeweled cardigan and my favorite jeweled accessories to the mix to complete this office favorite.

 

Office Wear – Night

 

Christen Rochon

 

Necklace: J. Crew

Leather Moto Jacket: H&M

Leggings:  20 Legz

Shoes: Christian Louboutin

 

Christen Rochon

 

In true “diva” form, the quickest way to turn a “sweet” look into a “fierce” look is to add leather baby! I paired my favorite leather leggings, Moto jacket from H&M and studded Louboutins to transform into a rocker-chic look perfect for Happy Hour or late night/date night fun.

Another way I love creating day-to-night looks is by adding (then removing) layers to compose an entire day of style using key pieces. I used my latest (and greatest) find from the Altuzarra for Target designer collection as the base for my second daytime to night look.

 

Office Wear – Day

Shirt:  Forever 21

Peplum Top:  Forever 21

HelloBeautiful.com

 

I layered a double POP of neon green with a sheer collared shirt and peplum top. (You can never wear too much neon! #NeonMakesMeHappy) I really wanted to liven up this monochromatic moment in living color and bring it to life. (I could’ve easily substituted this librarian-inspired look with a classic white blouse and black sweater – but if I’m going to be a librarian then I’m gonna be the jazziest librarian you ever did see!)

 

Office Wear – Night

 

Altuzarra For Target

Dress:  Target

Shoes:  Forever 21

Night time, is the right time to shed the layers and take it all off! Once I removed the extras and added a red hot rouge lip, I’m left with this va-va-voom glam look, compliments of the Altuzarra for Target silky maxi dress.

 

Christen Rochon

 

These are just a few ways that I have fun with beauty and style from day to night. What about you? What are your must have pieces/accessories to create a polished look from day-to-night?
