Diversifying Industry Standards | MARZ Master Class

It’s time to EDUCATE, ERADICATE and TRANSFORM the industry!

There are countless talented models in the world, but often times they’re blind to what being a model really means and what it takes to conquer the fashion industry. So, they lose weight, bleach their skin and alter their gifted beauty to fit in. Many women and men don’t realize that the sky is the limit and that they don’t have to submit to those industry standards. But unfortunately, this cut throat industry is boxed in by the capacity of a preconceived notion.

Often times we’re comparing ourselves to others through the world of media, forcing ourselves into society’s beauty standards, and creating a negative mindset that tells us that we’ll never be good enough. Models who struggle with this tend to forget the sole purpose of fashion, modeling, and the likeness of their journey.

The Marz Enterprise LLC team will serve as the liaison for all clients with a passion to create an outlet of opportunity in the fashion industry. Their core business is the management and industry development of models, photographers, designers, makeup artists and stylists.

Their goal is to revamp the fashion world by creating an inclusive environment that will not limit someone based on their gender, size, ethnicity or height. Marz will take a new approach to managing and marketing talent brands by building a network of prosperity. They plan to build a community that will use a models talents to add to the fashion industry without altering their identity. They will create a pathway for the next super model and diversify the industry.

MARZ is also the reliable team for any project whether fashion show, production, and creative directing. They will provide an outlet for individuals to build their self-esteem and create a safe place for the next generation to thrive on the east coast to build an international platform.

Our First Publication | #Girl Magazine

Our work has officially been published!

IMG_5731img_5566-1_33003863583_o

We recently teamed up with Eliza Romero, the photographer behind Aestheticdistance, to put together a visual for an online magazine publication. This was our second time collaborating with her since our first photo shoot back in early May. “Girl About Town” had to have been one of our favorite shoots yet! If you haven’t seen it, go check it out.

img_5395-1_33687604071_o

For this particular shoot, she brought together a team of female creatives who brought their A-game. We were able to shoot 2 different models with 3 looks each in just 2 hours. From the hair to the makeup, each models look was cohesively unique.

This was our first time providing this many pieces of clothing and jewelry for a shoot compared to our normal 3-4 looks. Most magazines require you to submit at least 5-6 different looks to qualify. It wasn’t as bad as we thought since we organized everything prior, per usual.

Elizza plans to submit the other photos to another online magazine as well so, stay tuned for those!

Accessorizing is Key | The Secrets of Styling

It’s one of those morning’s where you wake up on the wrong side of the bed. You’ve slept through your alarm clock and now you only have 30 minutes to get dressed, eat breakfast and still make it to work on time.

UGHHHHH!

15 more minutes to spare and you’re running out the door to hop in your car. As you pull off, you start checking things off in your head to make sure you’re fully prepared to take on anything your job throws at you for the next 8 hours. When you realize that you’re all set and ready for the world, you glance in the mirror to give yourself the “I’m THAT b****” look and notice that you forgot to put on your earrings!!!

…along with your watch…and your favorite necklace…and ring. You’re eager to turn around but barely have enough time to spare.

Forget it…

You’ll just have to be basic at work today.

We’ve learned that accessories can either make or break an outfit. Your personal style not only shows in the clothing you wear, but is also represented in accessorizing. It’s one of the keys to styling that can take your look from one level to the next.

You can either make your accessories the vocal point of your look or tone it down with simple, dainty pieces. But jewelry isn’t the only way to accessorize.

Shoes, purses and even jackets are great ways to take an outfit from basic to fab. Jackets are our absolute FAV. Just like jewelry, you can pair any statement jacket with a simple look and let it speak for itself.

Accessorizing a look isn’t always easy. Sometimes, you’re not sure what goes with what and are left with an incomplete look. Well, we came up with a few easy tips to help you accessorize your everyday look, taking them from drab to fab!

Accessorizing Tips

Before leaving the house, a lady should stop, look in the mirror, and remove one piece of jewelry.

A Day with Bae | Cylburn Arboretum

SATURDAY, MARCH 25TH

DOWNTOWN BALTIMORE

So we finally crossed something off our to-do list this weekend!

We love trying new things, so we recently made a pact that we would eat at new restaurants and explore some new spots once the weather broke. Today was surprisingly warm, so we decided to go on an adventure.

First stop, Cylburn Arboretum!

If you’ve been to Rawlings Conservatory and Botanical Gardens than you know what we were expecting. But it was actually nothing like that. Everything was outside and there weren’t many plants or flowers to look at. They did have a mansion that was kind of cool but it was closed to the public due to a private event so we weren’t able to go all the way inside.  I think a wedding was actually taking place.

These were literally the only flowers we got to see 😩

Next up, food!

There isn’t much that we don’t like when it comes to food. We found this cute little spot on the @eatmorebaltimore instagram page. If you don’t follow them, you should! They showcase a bunch of low key and popular food spots in the Baltimore area.

8 Ball Meatball specializes in all types of meatballs and serves them 3 different ways. First you choose your meat, then your sauce and lastly, how you’d like like them served. They also have a selection of specialty pizza’s.

Jordan ordered the 8 Ball aka The Meatball pizza and I got the Chicken Pesto and Spicy Pork and Parmesan Cream meatball sliders. Everything was soooo good. We would definitely go back!

Be sure to look out for our next day out. I wonder where we’ll go next…

The Look


Knit Top and Legging Set: Boohoo

Baby Pink Adidas: DSW

Suede Clutch: Mark and Graham (gift)

I call this the “girly sweat suit” lol This look was extremely cool and comfy; perfect for a day outside with a lot of walking and drinking involved. I’ve also been utterly obsessed with pastel colored sneakers lately for the spring, so I knew they’d be perfect with the grey set.

A clutch is definitely my go-to kind of bag so this one paired perfectly. I tend to gravitate towards suede accessories so don’t be surprised if you see me rocking this combo again!

See why we love pastel colored shoes on our recent post,  Top 5 spring Essentials 

After lunch, we met up with our friends for drinks! Check out the vlog here

Spring Essentials

Spring is finally here and you know what that means?!

WARM WEATHER

A change in season calls for fresh, new styles and trends. So I stopped by to fill you in on my top 5 essentials for the spring that will make your wardrobe one to remember.

The Essentials 

Frayed Denim

IMG_2807-1-2

Frayed denim has been trending since the winter season and is still standing strong! This effortless detail adds just enough flare  to any pair of “plain jane” skinny jeans. You can either go full on frayed to the point where it almost looks like fringe or keep it cute and simple, similar to the pair worn above.

Daytime Look:

  • Tee shirt and sneakers
  • Leather jacket and pointed toe flats

Night Out Look:

  • Silk blouse and heels
  • Light knit sweater with funky ankle boots

Pastel Colored Shoes

IMG_2951-1-2.jpg

Pastel colors are the new neutrals! If you thought you couldn’t wear a lavender sneaker with any outfit, you thought wrong. To make it a little easier, try matching your shoes to your bag or your jacket.

Daytime Look:

  • Monochrome look with any color pastel sneaker
  • Joggers and a bomber jacket

Night Out Look:

  • A midi dress and the perfect pastel pump

A Statement Jacket

IMG_2792-1-2

If you were browsing for a new spring jacket, I’m sure a light blue leather wouldn’t be the first one you’d grab. Believe it or not, a statement jacket like this one can easily be worn multiple ways. If you’re having trouble, try finding a statement jacket that has more than one color in it. That way, it’s a little easier for you to pair it with a bunch of different items.

Daytime Look:

  • Simple white button up and jeans
  • Cargo pants and an oversize tee shirt

Night Out Look:

  • LBD and a simple black pump
  • Sexy jumpsuit

A Denim Skirt

IMG_2898-1

Season after season, denim has been and always will be a wardrobe essential. Denim skirts on the other hand are back and even better than ever. Whether you’re going for an edgy or a sweet look, denim skirts are now deemed appropriate.

Daytime Look:

  • An oversize button up with a suede bootie
  • Light weight sweater layered with a trench

Nigh Out Look:

  • A denim top and matching skirt (denim on denim)
  • A fun printed top and a melatic block heel

Fun Accessories

IMG_2783-1-2

I’m not really big on accessories but I’ve learned that a fun necklace or a dainty clutch can definitely complete a look. The silver jewelry and accessories worn for this outfit accentuated the silver details on the jacket. When deciding between what color metals to wear, I usually feed off of the hardware on my shoes, outerwear or handbag. Even though some people like to mix metals, I try my best to avoid doing so for a cleaner, more put together ensemble.

Daytime Look: 

  • Bouquet necklace
  • Silver studs
  • Watch

Night Out Look: 

  • Tassel earrings
  • Choker
  • Bangles
