Peace Love Oprah

Written by , Posted in Alina's World, Behind the Scenes, Celebrity Sightings, Events, Featured on

 

OprahSocial 1024x1024 Peace Love Oprah Peace Love World is thrilled to announce the creation of the “Peace Love Oprah” collection available exclusively for guests attending Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend multi-city tour event this fall throughout the United States. The “Peace Love Oprah” collection features women’s apparel and accessories, including tees, tote bags, a hoodie and iPhone case that combine Peace Love World’s signature peace and love graphics with Oprah Winfrey’s iconic “signature.”

The two brands together is an organic collaboration that makes sense on every level. Each brand represents positivity and soulful inspiration.  We both have a mission of love and empowerment. For Alina Villasante, this collaboration has been a dream come true – something she manifested through her intentions, she put this goal out into the universe!  Like Oprah said, “It is very true that the way you think creates reality for your self, there are other factors going on, so it’s not everything but you can really change your own reality based on the way that you think.” Oprah’s team selected Alina and Peace Love World to design the official tour merchandise because it was the right combination of fashion with a message for Oprah’s Life You Want Tour. And we couldn’t be more thrilled! Alina Villasante hosted 3 Peace Love World fashion shows on the O Town stage last Friday in Atlanta and will continue to do this in select cities throughout the tour, to kick-off the weekend experience of powerful transformation. O Town is a pop-up town square filled with booths, lounges, and photo kiosks available for all event attendees to enjoy throughout Friday from 10am-6pm and Saturday from 7am-4pm.The tour will now travel to seven more cities across the country to inspire thousands of people who are looking for a message and inspiration on how to create the life they want. The tour ends its run the weekend of November 14-15 in San Jose, California.  Each city will be a full weekend of positive energy, meditation, motivation and inspiration for YOU to write your own story – live the life you want! On Friday evening, attendees are treated to a welcome by Oprah.  Saturday is a full day workshop with Oprah and her trailblazers such as Deepak Chopra or Mark Nepo, Elizabeth Gilbert, Rob Bell, and Iyanla Vanzant. You will only get back as much as you put in.

Peace Love Oprah merchandise will be available exclusively to The Life You Want Weekend Tour ticket holders in all eight cities beginning on Friday, September 5th in Atlanta. Peace Love Oprah merchandise ranges from $20-$60. Tickets are available at www.oprahweekend.com.

BLOGCOVER Style Statement

 

The pattern has developed and tribal is trending.. AGAIN! When it comes to style, it gets personal and tribal is the epitome of you. From bold graphic prints to simple shapes and from earth tones to bright shades, bohemian chic is taking over the runway. It is a state of mind to be bohemian and is a style that will never fade.  This season our accessories were inspired by Aztec prints that are bold and detailed. We took it back to our roots and put our classic symbols together to create an exclusive Peace Love World Aztec print. Shop our bold, fun and flirty accessories available now in stores and online! Follow the trend here.

Kindness is Cool

Written by , Posted in Alina's World, Behind the Scenes, Giveaways, New Arrivals, Press, Video Posts

Kindness is a quality that a person possesses. It is warm, friendly, generous and most importantly considerate. By definition, cool means fashionably attractive or impressive therefore, cool is a personal opinion. In today’s generation, there is a significant amount of pressure to be “cool” in order to fit in. This pressure can lead to self-doubt, judgment and ultimately bullying. Unfortunately, throughout every stage of life we learn that some people believe that being cool is acting in a way that consciously or subconsciously may hurt others. It is important that we practice kindness and make it a habit. It is essential to the future that we teach the younger generations that kindness is cool.

In honor of our  back2school campaign and those who have been affected by bullying, our staff has taken the time to pledge to be kind. Join our team and take the pledge. Those who honor kindness with us will enter for a chance to win a Be Kind Hoodie and Pant.

Enter below by commenting how you will pledge to be kind.

Fall ’14 Inspo

Written by , Posted in Behind the Scenes, Fashion, Get the Look, Live in Love, New Arrivals, Style Watch, Trend Watch

COVER1 1024x614 Fall 14 Inspo

 

 

Fall is a time of transition. As the Peace Love World story unfolds, I am always looking for new avenues of inspiration. For this collection, I looked for the spiritual connection between love, the cosmos and the power of nature. I spent many nights looking at the stars, thinking about how we are all connected on a universal level. I chose symbols and words that express inner strength and cosmic love and brought it all back to Earth by putting them on elegant, cultured fabrics. This translated into beautiful apparel fit for falling in love, feeling free and harnessing the power within. There’s a lot going on beneath the surface, too. Many pieces contain hidden messages and symbols sewn and printed on the inside for personal inspiration -just for you- in the hopes that you’ll feel connected to us, to the Universe and, most importantly, to your soul. Love is the power that connects us all to each other and to the Universe itself. ~Alina Villasante

She also has this way of bringing out the best in everyone around her, myself included.

My Little Angel

Written by , Posted in Alina's World, Behind the Scenes

BRIANA 1024x1024 My Little Angel Briana found me; I went to visit her. Just when you think you are doing a good deed for someone else, the deed turns around. Briana brought so much to my life. She changed me in so many ways and elevated my spirituality to another level. I truly believe with all my heart that she is up there protecting me as my angel. She promised me this and I believe her. She brought her family to me so we could stay close. Briana had a purpose for so many. May she rest her little body in peace, and love us all from up above with her beautiful smile.
