Since last fall, sneaker wedges have been a really hot trend. We’ve seen Beyonce sporting them while toting baby Blue around, Alicia Keys rocking them at the NBA games, and they even come in handy to some of the top street style photographers.
So it’s no surprise that they are making a cameo this summer. Similar to the neon trend, I am also swooning over this one. (Sidebar — I’m currently taking donations for a pair of Marc Jacobs.)
Anywhos, I got this email from a readie last week about the new trend:
I’m a huge fan of sneaker wedges but I am clueless on how to style them. I feel like they would make me look extra tomboyish and overshadow my girly style.
So I’ve spent all morning searching for sneakers wedges. From Jeffrey Campbell, DKNY, and (my favs) Blink, I’ve highlighted my top 8 brands and how to style ‘em.
Find a cute pair of tight skinny jeans, a quirky tee that shows your personality, then accessorize yourself and you are all set for your 1st date with Mr. Right Now. (I think I need to add this tee to my collection)
Here’s #2 post featuring my blue mini (read #1 post here). I originally thought to wear this to my Shop and Swap event, BUT if you read my blog you know that plans change. I say this to say, don’t be surprised to see me out in this look, which I’m calling Peplum Blues, since it has not made a cameo at an event yet. Continue reading →
The above title should pretty much explain what this post is about. It was also the cute quirky name of the event I was invited to hosted by Motions Hair and their Global Brand Ambassador, celebrity hair stylist — Ursula Stephen.
In case you don’t know, she’s the hands behind Rihanna’sfabbbuuulooouuus hair. Here recently she’s done the red carpet looks for KerryWashington and GabrielleUnion. So I was pretty stoked and I will brag and say that I sat next to her. We chatted it up about hair tips, relationships, and we even got a chance to get a sneak of VH1′s Storytellers with Jill Scott before it aired.
During the event, Motions asked us “When did you first fall in love with your hair?” Check out my video of some of the blogger’s answers and chime in (via my comments) and let me know when YOU 1st fell in love with your hair. Continue reading →
Oh readies! .. what I grand few weeks I have had. I’ve been to NY at least 4 times in the past 3 weeks. (insert big big huge sigh here!) I know, I know — move already right. It’s coming. I’ve got that post already set up in my drafts folder.
I managed to finish 1 of the 2 videos from my visit to The Makeup Show last weekend. The video below highlights a few great moments during the Beauty and the Blog panel, a new and extremely informative discussion about beauty blogging.
Disclaimer: I am new at doing videos so bare with me. I only captured a little .. so sorry to Jen James Beauty who actually had a lot of great points but I was too busy listening and I forgot to hit that red record button. Le sigh.
ANYWHOS — Here’s a peek at what you missed or perhaps a recap for you. Hope to see you there next year! Continue reading →
Beyond my love for fashion, beauty, and well .. life, I love to relax and be social with my besties. My work week can be hella crazy. I spend all week at my FTJ answers questions, filling out tons of repetitive paperwork, and clicking on screens. When Friday comes around I am ready jet out of the building and head to my favorite hour(s) of the week. HAPPY HOUR! Continue reading →
In case you haven’t noticed, I am trying to do more videos on GIG and really get more familiar in front of the camera. I’d like to even maybe have a cool weekly video segment sponsored by some fabulous brand. Y’all keep me in your prayers.
I had the opportunity to visit the new LOFT store in Pikesville, MD. I made the announcement on my blog a few weeks ago about the new store concept (read that post here). So I was super geeked to be able to shop the new spring collection and even document it for you guys.
Check out my 1st of many style videos. Let me know if you guys think of any cool names to call this addition of my blog. Continue reading →
