Inspected Trend: Put A Belt On It

Inspected Trend: Put A Belt On It featuring Creatures of the Wind, BCBG, Edun
Inspected Trend: Put A Belt On It
I love it when a belt can cinched anything together. During the Spring '15 shows, brands as BCBG Max Azria belted a long caftan dress which gave a slight emphasis on the waist. While Marni and Edun opted for a more thicker obi belt style. Needless to say, this trend shows a creative way to wrap a belt around the waist.

Celebrity Trainer Kira Stokes to Bring Her Signature “Stoked Series” to BFX Studios
It's the Holiday season creeping up on us and with all the holiday travel and eats our regular fitness and diet regime can be placed on the hold.  However I think it's best to get stoked before and after the holidays. I recently got stoked not that long ago and it was worth it. What I mean is that, I took The Stocked Method class instructed by celebrity trainer Kira Stokes. I took the Fusion: Ride & Stoked LX (Lean  X-treme) class which is a hybrid of spinning and aerobics. All of Kira's classes will be held at the BFX Studio in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. The Stoked Method consists of her “Stoked Series” of classes and is based on the principle of muscle confusion and progression of movement, using a unique combination of resistance training and cardiovascular conditioning.  The Stoked Series includes:  Stoked360, Stoked C3BarreMAX, Stoked Primal, StokedAbs, Stoked Cross-Core™, Stoked Uptown/Midtown and Stoked F.I.T. Camp. I took a quick video of the  Fusion: Ride & Stoked LX class I took with Kira at BFX and you can see you that she's very interactive and motivating with her students. See the video here.
