Aleida Rhode is the creative force behind *Aleida* formally known as Fashion Nomads.  She is an accomplished model, photographer and now designer, opening her first store in March 2009.  I met up with Aleida at her store and what a delightful lady.  I was absolutely thrilled when gave me a sneak peek of several of her designs for Modavia Fashion Week.  All I can tell you is, they are fantastic!  You can see Aleida’s  wonderful new designs September 15th at 3:00pm SLT during Modavia Fashion Week.  You do not want to miss it!

Aleida Jinja top & konge pants

Here I am wearing Jinja II Flower Top in nougat and Konge pants in creme paired with Kampala stilettos in cocoa.  Notice the delicate floral on the fabric, so feminine.  The top comes with all layers and can be worn tucked as well.  The Konge pants have two options, loose fit and tight fit and include prim cuffs accentuated with tiny buttons.

Aleida spring jacket_001

I am already getting into an autumn mood and this casual outfit is perfect.  The days are warm and the nights are getting chilly.  Aleida’s Moroti Retro Spring Jacket is the answer to those chilly fall evenings.  I love this jacket as it comes with all layers, prim cuffs and collar.  I am wearing black, however I will get one in each color.  If you’re feeling a little warm, remove the jacket and show off a cute  little tank top, Mengo II in the color blood.  The low cut top is adorned with a tiny dainty bow, lace in front and back and paired with the low rise Glamour Jeans shown in dark blue.  They are a must have for your wardrobe.  I love the stitching detail.  It includes two layers and prim cuffs.  You could also wear these jeans with your favorite boots as well but I like Aledia’s Kampala Stilettos in classic red.  They are available in 12 colors or if you’re like me and must have every color, get the Fat Pack.

Aleida Xai Xai

It was love at first sight.  I stopped in my tracks and saw this beautiful dress!  There was no stopping me now.  I thought I must move closer and I knew I had to have the Xai-Xai mini dress in white. This is the perfect party dress and includes two skirt options and a darling attachable bow in the back.  You can chose the plain skirt or the lacy floral underskirt, which is my favorite.  The low cut bodice is laced up the back.  There isn’t a party or occasion you won’t be the center of attention in this sexy, flirty mini dress with Aleida’s Kampala stilettos in classic white.  I must have this dress in every color too.
