I started the cruise wedding series with a story about how I have been saving my gorge. BCBG gown for a special occasion, but never told my Ranis & Rajas about the ACTUAL wedding. (I was waiting for the profesh. pics OBVI)
The wedding was on St. Thomas which was green, clear blue waters & extremely hot! Super beautiful though.
Since I didn't know what adventures were in store for us when we boarded off the boat, I decided to wear a romper. I love the print & material (which reminds me of sari).. Romps are good for both hot and cold weather & am completely I am completely obsessed with them ( I own 30+).
Love your fashion. I live in Trinidad and I plan on opening my clothing store in September so now it's research time. I don't want to spend my limited time when I get to LA getting confused, so I need your help. My store will be a small sq. footage firstly and I know some brands that see well here. e.g. naked zebra, levers, lost april, codigo, ja ja, and so on would I get some of these in San Pedro Mart? And do you think $5,000.00 US will be sufficient this one is extremely important since I have to start buying US dollars from like today in order to have enough. Can you help me with any suggestions at all? Anything will do. I am green at this new business endeavor.
Sorry for the delayed response. The fashion district isn't really known to sell brand clothing items (I have never seen any of the brands you mentioned above in the district)..ESP. in bulk. I's mainly fake designer wear. The beauty of the the district is that you can buy in bulk for cheap and change the tags to make it into your own brand. Another perk is that the district is usually ahead of most fashion trends. There are a lot of famous boutiques and such that buy in bulk from the showrooms and stores in the district.
Since I have never bought in bulk/know exactly what it is you want to buy I can't tell you if 5k is enough money or not.. however I do have a friend who just opened a boutique and she said it was about a 10k start up price for her.
Hope this helps.
One of my besties decided to have a cruise wedding this year, and with cruises comes formals.
As a mid-to-late twenty year old & never going to formals anymore, I have been saving this BCBG Gown Gem for a special occasion (and at least 3 years). What better place to wear this chic piece than on a cruise wedding?
My fave. part of this gown is that you can lightly see the patterned material under the black fabric, only if you are paying close attention of course.

I'm interested in buying cute chic wholesale clothing, any ideas on where I may start? I know your familiar with the fashion district, any recommendations on where I can buy in discount prices, direct from the seller, where I may get more reasonable prices vs buying from a boutique. Any information helps. Thank you, your time and effort is highly appreciated.
Your best resource for finding stores in the LA Fashion District is the actual Fashion District Blog. They have a whole list of stores that will sell clothing items to you in wholesale. Do you live in LA? If not I have listed other resources on my last Ask Karish Post.
It's been seriously freezing in LA lately - and thank god there are solutions to keep yourself warm & chic in winter.. my favorite being Fur Lined Leggings! Of course I discovered these in Santee Alley (my favorite place in LA) while I was on this mad hunt for stretchy pants.
I bought them in this forrest green color and then realized as it was getting colder I should have bought them in every single color they offered!
Normally you wouldn't wear such things to work, but of course I had to find a way to do it to keep warm inside & outside of the office! I paired it with a sweater (with an attached shirt), scarf, and pointy heels.
