Holiday Hip List 2018: Aisha RTW

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino recently met with Aisha, owner of Aisha RTW. The Aisha brand is based in NJ and consists of hand made, ready to wear dresses, coats, capes, scarves and handbags. The items are all made with fine Italian materials offering superior quality. Aisha explains that she completed her master’s in Italy and grew to love the Italian fabrics, which is why that’s all she uses for now.  

“We want women to put on the dresses and feel amazing”, Aisha says.

These products are made for women who want to be comfortable, yet luxurious and fashionable. They are for women who want simplicity with a pop of pizazz. The versatility of the clothing appeals to just about any type of woman there is. 

Aisha told Lisa, “When you feel amazing, you look amazing. Its not just about the dress, its about how you feel in the dress.” 

This resonated with me because I’ve always been told, “When you look amazing, you feel amazing”, but I like the way Aisha puts it much better.  How you feel is more important than how you look. Anyone can throw on a beautiful dress and look extremely beautiful on the outside while feeling uncomfortable and self conscious on the inside.  

Every woman should have at least one Aisha RTW item in their closet if they want to be comfortable, versatile and fashionable! For more information, visit AishaRTW.com.

Interview with Nashville’s Libby Callaway

 
Hey #HipNJ! Lisa Marie Latino recently had the pleasure of speaking with Nashville’s own Libby Callaway, Founder of the Nashville-based consulting agency, The Callaway. Libby was so kind to inform us of all that this city has to offer!
 
She told us that Nashville is a fantastic place to get some BBQ, specifically hot chicken! Gallatin Pike is the hub for great BBQ as there are several spots near each other.
 
In addition to great food, there is also fantastic coffee shops, concerts and shops located near Marathon Music Works. It is a thriving area with very friendly people and a great variety of things to do!
 
If you’re looking for a place to stay in Nashville, Libby recommends the Noelle Hotel. A cultural mecca, this hotel is near several shops owned by local designers and artists.
 
Nashville is definitely a fun place to grab some drinks and see some live music. Libby recommends Robert’s Western World—“the honky-tonk to end all honky tonks!” Her two top country music venues are the Grand Ole Opry and the Ryman Auditorium, which used to be an old church!
 
Fashion, of course, is a hot commodity in Nashville. East Nashville is the place to be for great fashion and Libby’s recommendations include Black Shag Vintage and High Class Hillbilly.
