Kim Danielle is Founder and Editor of TheEmpressLife.com, I’ve always had a love for fashion and recently discovered a love for publishing. Fashion is an art within itself, and writing about it allows me to express both my creativity and love for fashion! Again, I have had a true love for fashion since I was a young girl, and was always the daring type to set her own trends and paid immensely for it early on, needless to say now is different. I must say, since I have started blogging I have been in touch with some really great people, and it has made blogging just that much more exciting.
You will find me subscribed to many of the top fashion magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, ELLE, WWD, InStyle, Nylon, Marie Claire, W, and Vogue . I also tend to get a fix-for-fashion through other fashion blogs, shopping, and sites like NY Times Fashion and Huffington Post Style.
One thing I have learned is that great fashion, personal style and makeup can simply make a woman feel like the Commander- in- Chief! I can’t wait to share some of the trends I truly enjoy with you and hear from you as well. Enjoy!
Well Done Bey ! We approve. The athleisure line co-founded by the Queen herself alongside Topshops’ owner Sir Philip Green is definitely going to be an in demand item. The collection is a deliberate mixture of active and leisure wear that of course caters to women in different shapes and sizes (Thanks Bey!).
Leave it to Bey to empower women to feel sexy while working out or in “a la leisure” mode. Surely, I will definitely be picking up my favorite pieces from the collection! The sexy and versatile line officially launches April 14th and can be picked up at your nearest Topshop location or online. You can also visit IvyPark.com for more information on exclusive retailers.
Still not feeling empowered by that bodysuit? Check out Elle.com, where Bey is all things Ivy Park in an interview for the May 2016 issue!
“These boots are made for walkin”…. actually the entire collection is. Freda Salvador designers Megan Papay and Cristina Palomo-Nelson wanted quality and style, but comfort above all else . The high-end footwear line features leather, metallic and animal print styles that can be perfectly paired with your favorite pair of shorts, jeans, or any casual look! Ladies Freda Salvador is also available at ShopBop.com Take a look!
It’s true. We are very fond ofthe Alison Lou emoticon jewelry. Actually it rocks!!! The whimsical jewelry line puts a “new face” on jewelry that is oh so familiar. C’mon you’re guilty of using this expressive languagetoo 😉
Although we are all fluent in this language, seeing it on 14k white and yellow gold makes it just that much better doesn’t it? The fall 2013 line of bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings allows for simple but fun creativity when accessorizing . Who wouldn’t fall in love with such a fun way to be so expressive with jewelry?
Yes ladies, be honest we all love a casual day every now and again, and I don’t mean a tragic pair of yoga pants, sweats or an over-sized tee. Casual can be just as sexy as any other polished ensemble. 19 4t designer Linda Monaskanian nailed it with her line of chic casual knitwear. The line has been featured in publications like WWD, Nylon, and Elle to name a few, and celebrities spotted rocking the laid back look include Emily Blunt, Anne Hathaway and Kim Kardashian. Here’s a look at the fall 2013 collection.
That it is, and one I suggest you dabble in. Designer and Co-Founder of C&C California Cheyann Benedict embarked on a journey of rediscovering after three years of building the successful brand and it being acquired by Liz Claiborne in 2005. Upon deciding to create a new brand that not only carried her name but was inspired through her travels,experiences and yet true to her vision, Cheyann launched her new line.
The collection features dresses, tops, bottoms, and sweaters.We really love the easiness to dress this collection up or down. Versatility is always welcomed. All I will say is… Vega, Teenager, Windflower, The Crop Tee, ( we know about her tees) and The Tuk Tuk. Oh, what am I talking about? Just our top five from the collection!
P.S. Did we mention the curated vintage? Well it’s just another reason to pop in to her boutique.
Talk about setting the bar!! Hunting Seasons’ Fall 2013 collection is pure handbag excellence. With top leather and exquisite skins like python, lizard and ostrich, designer Danielle Corona’s desire for quality and detail is immeasurable.
We love the simplicity paired with rich bold colors and exploration of skins…it’s just… Timeless Luxury. Stay tuned, I’m pretty sure my favorite Hunting Season bag will make it on our Fall Must have list, but until then head over to hunting-season.com for more info and a complete list of retailers.
I’m always obsessed with something and right now it’s sweet arm candy… cuffs are great statement making pieces and so fun to grab when accessorizing! Here are the bracelets that are at the top of our “wrist list”
There’s nothing that makes a woman feel sexier than the perfect swimsuit, and Aqua Di Lara definitely delivers. Canadian designer Reyhan Sofraci’s passion for swimwear is clearly communicated through her designs, with her inspiration coming from her world travels and cultural experiences.
The Spring/Summer 2013 collection is complete with bikinis, monokinis, and exquisite cover ups for the White and Black labels. Women who desire beautiful, electrifying hues in high-end swimwear would love White Label designs. Black Label kicks it up a notch boasting bold prints and colors, metallics, and cutout designs.

Since it’s Manicure Monday I felt obligated to share … I just received my Illamasqua UV Glow nail polishes in the mail (huge online shopper) and can’t wait to use them! The new UV colors are part of the Paranormal Collection. This is one of my favorite nail items because the colors are so rich, bold, and last a long time. I’ve been a big fan of the Faithful,Bacterium, and Charisma nail varnishes in the past and absolutely love them. You can find your favorite Illamasqua hue and other beauty goodies at Sephora.com
Surely a girl after our own heart, Rihanna loves M∙A∙C. Today (May 2, 2013) the superstars RiRi Woo lipstick hit M∙A∙C. retailers.

In one word…. Sexy! Thanks to Tom Ford, Altuzarra, Gianvito Rossi, Jimmy Choo and a few other shoe genius’ we have something else to go completely nuts over. The Gladiator Knee High Sandal. These babies didn’t just pound the runway, it’s one trend we will see quite a bit of this Spring/Summer. Some celebrities that have been seen parading in them include Jennifer Lopez, Rita Ora, and Nicki Minaj. While definitely making a statement as a heel, don’t under-estimate these show-stoppers as flat, as they really take a classic pair of shorts up a couple notches…. Enjoy!
Ahhhhh!!!! Spring is here and so is the need for new pieces, jackets to be specific. Intermix is one of my favorite places to buy jackets, blazers and accessories and this seasons picks are of no exception. Let’s be honest, it doesn’t get better than a great jacket to compliment an overall look or be the statement piece. Here are a few jackets you can find on intermixonline.com and while there take a look at the 2013 Summer Look Book …. Haute! Haute! Haute!
