Just a Pop Up with Young & Able for the Holidays

By Akela Moore

So about three years ago I discovered Young & Able, a curated online store and seasonal pop-up shop representing emerging brands in fashion jewelry, ceramics, home, beauty and art objects. I knew the brand when it was just starting out so it was great to learn of his temporary space at the Refinery Hotel. This 4th Annual holiday event was celebrating women-owned businesses and connecting artists. In partnership with Pop Up Nation, you can stop in at the pop at Refinery Hotel located 63 W. 38th St will be open until December 31st.  (more…)


September New York Fashion Week is upon us! Every fashionista’s favorite time of the year. The Fashion Plug celebrated with the Luxury Vintage shop with designer apparel, What Goes Around Comes Around as they held a anniversary party for 23 years of business and kicked off NYFW. We were in awe of some of the Chanel jewelry pieces and timeless bags. See me and Amber’s favorite picks for the night.  (more…)

So three more days to buy items at 50% and trust me ladies and gents its worth every penny. Visit and check out the inside of what was 122 Prince St. (more…)

Emma Roberts x Bauble Bar

Emma Roberts 1Julia Roberts niece, the lovely Ms. Emma Roberts was recently on E! News showcasing her new jewelry line collaboration with Bauble Bar. The collection has 20 pieces filled with fashion bracelets, necklaces and earrings. The 23-year-old actress states she always loved fashion and was always into jewelry, but was just waiting for the right fit that made sense and was true to her. When Bauble Bar approached her it was pretty much a win-win.  I know I’ve told you guys I used to work for Liz Claiborne when I started my career in fashion and I was a Junior Account Executive for the Jewelry Division of Kohl’s, so I definitely have a passion for this specific accessory. My favorite piece from the collection is the statement necklace. Just how Emma wore this necklace you too can dress up a very casual outfit.
