Alina’s Resort 2014 Inspo

Written by , Posted in Alina's World, Behind the Scenes, Coming Soon, Fashion, Get the Look, Live in Love, New Arrivals, Style Watch, Trend Watch

cover 1 Alinas Resort 2014 Inspo “I always enjoy telling love stories. For our Resort collection, I wanted each piece to exude a romantic softness. Like love itself, I wanted whoever wears it to feel a sense of lightness and excitement. I chose pastel colors and delicate fabrics to achieve this. Strong messages of eternal life and peace mingle with an array of symbols to create a cohesive collection that expresses kindness, romance and imagination. I believe a woman should always be confident, comfortable and elegant everywhere she goes. Elegance is an attitude.”~ Alina Villasante

Give Miami Day

cover 1024x682 Give Miami Day

Give Miami Day is a 24-hour giving event that gave Peace Love World and Alina Villasante an opportunity to give back to the community and help build a greater Miami. Alina has had the chance to inspire many young individuals as a powerful woman and a designer. Today, she took the time to visit Kinloch Park Elementary and inspire these children to do what she loves to do everyday. The children were given Peace Love World t-shirts and the chance to connect with Alina on a personal level through their own designs and creations. What a beautiful way for her to show her love for giving back and fashion in honor of Give Miami Day. Get involved with The Miami Foundation here.

Love is Timeless

Written by , Posted in Behind the Scenes, Events, Featured on, Get the Look, Live in Love

generation cover  Love is Timeless

Peace Love World is about more than just peace and love, it’s about family. We understand what true passion, love of life, and family can bring to your life. Behind the scenes of Peace Love World is one large family tree connected through both blood and love. Peace Love World and Alina Villasante, my mom, are the heart that brings life and love to the bigger picture.

Our team put together a photo shoot with my mom, my grandmother, my great grandmother, and myself. Doing the photo shoot really hit home and embraced the beauty of having four generations together. As a company we have been able to accomplish creating a lifestyle brand with ready-to-wear pieces that work for all of us. The pieces feel good, look good, and bring out the youthfulness in a person. “If you look at my grandmother who is 94 years old, dressed in Peace Love World, it’s like she took 20 years off of her. There’s something special about what the clothes do for you. The clothes give you life,” said Alina. This gave us a whole new appreciation for the brand and what it means. It’s truly special to share passion through four generations, and it is even more special to be fortunate enough to have those four generations unite and share the experience.

For Alina, hands symbolize wisdom and living for today. Our life experiences show through our hands and our hearts. My mom is the epitome of growing up without growing old and it shines throughout our family. She is the heart. Family is home, friends are too, and no matter how hard it gets, peace and love bring us true happiness.

And the winner is…..

Written by , Posted in Behind the Scenes, Celebrity Sightings

P10402751 300x200 And the winner is..... Oh, what a night!

Last night on “Dancing With the Stars” the judges were passing out 10’s like candy – and much deserved!

Having just returned home from watching the finals performance live in Los Angeles on Monday night, the race was too close to predict.  William and Cheryl set fire to the dance floor with their sexy Latin number while Donald and Peta took a chance on a country song.  Who says country doesn’t pay off? Drew Lachey and Cheryl Burke took home the mirrorball trophy with a country song Season 2. It was a risk that paid off when Donald and Peta were announced as winners for Season 14!

Peace Love World is proud to dress the cast of “Dancing With the Stars” each and every season.  The comfort and style are favorites of both the stars and pros.  For a re-cap of all the styles your favorite dancers wore this season, view the album here.

Congratulations to Donald and Peta!

Behind the Desk of Juani Valdes

Written by , Posted in Behind the Scenes

Take a closer look “Behind the Desk” of Peace Love World employee Jauni with some questions that’ll give you a feel for what a day in her shoes is like. Dillen Photo Shoot 109 200x300 Behind the Desk of Juani Valdes

“Desk? What desk?! I don’t have time to sit at a desk!” – Juani Valdes

- How long have you worked at Peace Love World?
Almost two and half years now.

- What is your job title?
Peace Love Retail! I’m the Retail Coordinator for our retail stores located in Miami, FL.

Dillen Photo Shoot 103 300x200 Behind the Desk of Juani Valdes - What is a typical day at work for you?
Well, I pretty much visit all the stores daily and make sure they all look perfect and the same! They need to be nice and tidy at all times, have enough of the latest product, and I also make sure our staff has everything they need at the stores.

- What is your favorite PLW garment to wear?
I love to wear a white Boheme Swing top with White Wide leg pants. It’s perfect for Miami weather (when it’s not raining of course). I look and feel light and fresh all day.

- Give us your most enjoyable moment when you were at work.
I think when I’m able to leave work and feel like I’ve accomplished a lot are my most enjoyable days. I love the days when there are very few kinks and I feel like I’ve conquered all my to-dos. We have to write a daily task list and send them to our boss at the end of the day, and when I see my list is long and complete, I have a huge smile on my way home from work.

- What’s your favorite food?
Italian. I love spiced flavors and herbs. I’m all about flavor!

Dillen Photo Shoot 108 300x200 Behind the Desk of Juani Valdes - Why do you love working for Peace Love World?
Because I’m helping my friend make her dreams come true. I’ve known Alina since our daughters were three years old. She’s always talked about starting this company and it’s great to be a part of it when she’s talked about it for so many years. It also inspires me to do more, give more, and to make people happy.

Housewife to Entrepreneur

JZ at Juvia 300x226 Housewife to Entrepreneur

Last night was a girls night out at the newest rooftop restaurant in town, Juvia, with Peace Love Friend and Fan, Jill Zarin.  Jill joined Alina Villasante and me (Peace Love Boss) with a few girlfriends for a night of catching up on all the latest business adventures.  The conversation was lively as both of these entrepreneurial women dished about upcoming projects, new designs, and tossed around the idea of a collaboration. Stay tuned, you never know what could happen with a pair like this! Follow both of these lovely ladies on Twitter @peacelovealina and @jillarin.
