The NYC Fashion Runway “After Dark” Fashion Show at The Empire State Building Featuring Designers Maria de Guzman , Boho Designs and A Being Born Again Couture. The Show featured famous artists from MoMA, Artspace and MCA including Eliot Porter, Willem de Kooning and Barnaby Furnas. The overall location was excellent, The Empire State Building for a fashion? Yes, Yes, Yes who could have asked for more. The house was packed and the clothing was showcased by designers that has vision and well made clothing on their models. The village style runways setup was a bit off, as the big gap between sets allowed the crowd to become uneasy, but nothing a drink could not fix. Spotlights for the runway path would have increase visibility on the fashion to media, buyers and audience. (Understanding it's a "After Dark" show), but, the main purpose was always to showcase the runway fashion, and for clothing to being seen properly.

It’s fall! And yes, colors are so in

Hello again lovely readers,

It’s fall! And yes, colors are so in.

It is a general concession that the economy is slowly moving out of a great depression, so many people are not so quick to splurge on seasonal shopping sprees but are still looking forward to setting trends in their own individual and unique ways. This is where I come in! I am here to try to help you work with what you already have and spend much less in new accessories so that you may be able to save. One of the first things to know about fashion is that it always comes back in style, mostly in different variations of the original look to showcase another perspective. So have no fear, I am sure we can work with what you already have to try to help bring relief to an already tight budget and still keep true to who you are!

There are different ways to save on shopping when working with a tight budget, such as individual/unique combinations from already existing wardrobe, saving by shopping at second-hand stores, shopping online to save through discounts and sometimes no tax sales…….and so many more. Our focus though for now is the first option, and that is working with what is already available. This is a chance to find out individual styles through the experimentation's involved when trying to come up with a look that best represents us when we put them together.

Many seem to feel more comfortable with wearing colors only in the spring and summer seasons, yet allotting the more somber colors to the fall season. Fall is a very colorfully seasons with different tones of yellows and oranges, and the fallen autumn leaves eventually turning into a rich chocolate toned brown color that seems to glow with its richness. The fall yellow and orange colors seem to range from a brightness so stunning it could only have been expected in the seasons of a high summer and yet, at times the falling leaves come down in a gentler and more subtle shades that would be flawless on any skin tone. Fall season shouldn’t be a time to abstain from colors, but an opportunity to bring together not only the bright colors of spring and summer but also the darker, gentler and more subtle tones that make fall so perfectly unique and beautiful. So don’t be afraid to play around with the colors you already have in your closet to come up with your very own individual and personal style.

So, feel free to experiment with your colors to figure out what styles best suits your individuality and/or personality. Be aware that this is about you, and the goal is for you to combine who you are with your fashion statement to (in some cases) help the individual find their voice. Here is an example I believe might be a door opener to many closet fashionistas: A quick assemble is combining your bright colored skinny jeans, dark tone top, a blazer jacket and a scarf matched with a closed-toe pumps, and you have a nice, simple yet classy outfit. This is just an idea to sought of “get the ball rolling”; It is important to know that you don’t have to be afraid to experiment with different ideas, just because your ideas might be different/unique does not make it wrong. Accepting ourselves for who we are is a great path towards confidence and might even help others to have a more open mind toward individuality!

The story is yours to tell, so what will it be? I hope you are as excited as I am at the endless possibilities of styles, ideas and we will like to see pictures of some of your combinations. Some of these pictures could be posted on the Longe magazine website as a Longe favorite. So please email your pictures to us at JLIB_HTML_CLOAKING and your picture might be chosen as a favorite to be posted. We can’t wait to hear from you and thank you so much for stopping by, we appreciate your visit and hope you come back. So until next time, I wish you adieu!


Yours faithfull

Fashion Around Town 2

The simply but classy look is the Multipurpose wrap/scarf. Everyone women should at lease have one of these in their closet. This look adds a bit of Chic to any look. Giving you're into colors "Blue, Pink & Red" are great colors to get for the winter as it will bring a bit of life to any Outfit.


Kingsley Osei for Catching Wreck Marketing is wearing the signature Burberry Tie with a Classic Suite that make this Business Owner Stands out among the crowd. There is nothing more attractive than a man that knows how to put himself together for every occasion. Kingsley definitely ranks highly when it comes to presentation to events both for the street and corporate events.

A night out at the Lounge brings out all different kind of flavors when it comes to fashion. Ms. Terrelonge Second from left is wearing a Ann Taylor white jacket, with a Banana Republic top and pair of BCBG Maxiza leggings. The combination gave Ms. T a cool look for the night, as she added jewelry to accent the style for the night. Terrian Walker Dicks CEO for the Power of Five Productions is wearing the signature look from the Runway Collection of BCBG, this dress is so classic but very difficult to wear again because it's such a stand out piece.

The Boston Proper look on Ms.Terrelonge is AWESOME. The hand beaded black sweater dress stands out. The only way to wear this piece again is with a jacket, but even then it would be very difficult for this not to be notice.

Fashion Around Town 3

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes... The one thing most women loves more than sex is probably shoes. Yes we said it, we are not into uggs here, as matter fact we find individual who wears uggs to lacks style and class. Uggs are one of the most ugliest shoe we have seen in history. Yes we understand they are warm, but can they not look like the moon.  But lets get on to more important items on the shopping list.  Having the right pair of black pumps is essential to any lady closet, and we are recommending Valentino or Charles Jourdan. Valentino is a great pair of shoe to have, but very expensive for the Average women, but if you want to look chic with class without the high price tag, we recommend Charles Jourdan. Longe found that fur is big for the season, and at this point, getting a pair of fur shoes in the closet should be high on the shopping list.  Fur gray heels also by Charles Jourdan


Sitting in Nordstrom, and of the shoes in the world the average college young man seem to love the Adidas. Why? it can be worn with jeans, sweats and suite.


Longe cannot say it enough about getting someone a watch for a gift. It's a priceless jester.  This is the perfect gift for many occasion especially when you get the a classy TECHNOMARINE watch. When buying a watch for a gift, understand the person's personally and find something that defines them on their level. Yes its that serious. Getting the average watch such Fossil, Guess, Coach, Ann Klein, Calvin Klein and alike lacks thought. In Longe category these watches are consider starter watches.

A night out with friend in Washington DC in the right look. Longe Loves nothing more than VIP treatment which was exactly that from the moment the touch down was made in the Washington DC Metro Area.  Something sparkling in the Lounge simply works. . Ms. Terrelonge is wearing a dress by Michael Kors, so simply but yet so classy.  When you do anything sparkling be very careful on the material and brand, it matters!!!!  if you get something cheap,  it will look cheap as the details and feel on the body will not be same.

Avery is rocking a classic look that only a few can pull off with taste and class. Thumps up to Avery for the "Brook Brothers Suspenders" wrap with the Black Tailor suite. His suite fits his body type perfectly, making him have a cool and fresh look that stands out among the crowd  at the Regional Conference for the Society of Black Engineers in Jackson Ms.

Melody Ortiz chic and trendy look was appealing and fit the format at the Pink Party. The Look can be carried over to other events as she piece her Jumper look with a belt. So for the next occasion she can switch out the belt, use different accessories and have a who new look with this trendy piece.  Shani for Shani Accessories is wearing a smashing purple/pink dress that was popping and eye catching, Longe cannot see this dress at a next event without being notice.  Except for possible belting the dress or adding a jacket, but that may take away from the beauty of the dress.

Renee Terrelonge is in a look of complementary colors that looks good together but do not match. This outfit is eye catching and each piece can be wore again with a different concept in mind.  The skirt can be wore with a pink blouse, no vest and blue shoe. This will give a new look to the skirt and not that noticeable at the next event. The second look is a classic piece and very hard to add anything outside of jacket to give this dress a entire new look without it being noticeable if Renee wears it again soon.


Favorite items for 2012 Christmas is "Swarovski Chrystal", wearing any piece by swaroski will provide a glow that draws attention as the crystal made by this company is simply beautiful. Can you ever go wrong with a watch? the invicta, Lancaster, Mavado Collections are classic pieces that's timeless.

Outside of the production on "24hr Catwalk" a VH1 show in New York City, 2 of the attendees walk through with a conservative fashionable look.
