« Happy Thanksgiving | Main | Ice Ice Skinnies »

As much as I love wearing Stella, Chloe, Miu Miu and Marc Jacobs, at times I get an even bigger thrill from wearing a design produced by an up and coming fresh faced fashion designer. Maybe it's my competitive edge, perhaps it's the Project Runway fan in me, but I always want to be the first one wearing the next big name on the fashion scene.

Meet Shavonne Cooper, a budding fashion designer based in Philly who recently launched her own sleek, sophisticated and completely wearable collection of super chic staples that will keep a girl looking posh, pristine and perfect all autumn and winter long. The Shavonne DeAnn AW collection offers a timeless sampling of bodycon dresses, cozy separates and more pieces in a signature black and grey color palette that will go with just about anything and everything in your closet.


I was lucky enough to get to try one of Shavonne's featured pieces, the Kiasha Tunic, a versatile colorblocked autumn/winter essential that can be worn as a dress or a top when paired with tights, leggings, or your sleekest pair of skinnies. This one piece wonder is just begging to be layered with a thin tissue tee or turtleneck underneath, a black leather moto jacket, military parka or wool cardigan thrown over on top.

What I love - At my present state, I can rock this tunic all through my second and third trimester. My favorite look is worn belted with skinny maternity jeans for the ultimate bump flattering basic. Then I can stilll show it off next season with a pair of opaque tights or leather leggings after I've returned to my pre baby bod. *[wishful thinking]

Ask me what I'm wearing and I'll proudly state, "It's a Shavonne". Just give her some time folks, this girl's got everything it takes to become a common fashion household name.
