How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
Who wears short shorts?
As everyone know I am the resident fashion and beauty queen here at BB&W and although I love everything beauty and fashion, I want to address another side of the industry, health.
Sometimes looking HAWT isn’t worth the high cost to your health.
Why do you have to change your clothes when you wake up in the morning? Why can’t one double their sleepwear as daywear? Throw on some heels and add a cute hair accessory and walk out of the door. Well, this micro trend, a throw back to the roaring 20s, allows you to do just that. Right off the runway at Stella McCartney’s show and a few other designers, straight to the red carpet and your door, see why sleepwear has become all the rage for daywear.
It is not necessary to constantly spend money on fashion. The rule of thumb is that your wardrobe should be 90% classic pieces and 10% trendy pieces. The bulk of your money should go towards items that will last you the lifetime of the garment with a few pieces that are one trend.
Don’t know if you’ve taken Tanisha, our beauty and fashion editor up on her offer for a free “ask a stylist” consultation, but you dang-well should. Her recent posts about what reds to wear according to your skin tone FINALLY helped me find my personal ‘red,’ Make Up Forever, No. 42.
It is the Wimbledon of America–of course Wimbledon is Tennis but man do they love their hats; a place filled with amazing horses, fashion, and HATS!! Yes, hats! And old school tradition and fun.
RED, the hottest color of the season and my fave color is all the rage and on at least one page in every fashion and interior design magazine this year. This powerful girl has made amajor comeback and she isn’t letting lose.
Ever wonder why you FEEL thinner than you look in your photos? Ever scurry away when someone pulls out a camera? Ever wonder if those Victoria’s Secret models have to see chiropractors after their photo shoots?
Being cute a preppy is the beginning to your ticket into the yacht club. If you look and dress the part than obviously you ARE the part. With shows like Gossip Girl paving the way for us fashion mavens, I have put together a few looks to inspire you on your journey to preppy style, but before that, here are a few dos and don’ts.
After May 15, I’ll be expecting to be on your Christmas, Kwanza and Hannukah cards because the mother of all book signings is happening in Los Angeles, and boy oh boy, we’ve got some goodies for only the first 25 people who arrive at Eso Wan book store–you know that one, where BARACK OBAMA and BILL CLINTON came down from Heaven to sign their books. And because I know people, I’ve got some folks really, REALLY excited about getting all of your First Date Ready (FDR). We want you to be FDR inside AND out, so get a relationships book like “Swirling” to get your mind right, and I’ll take care of the rest.
While finishing May’s chiczine, conducting interviews and contributing posts as the new fashion and beauty editor over here at BB&W, I have come to the realization that many of you chic women are parents who wish to look chic without the fuss or some fo you aren’t parents and honestly and realistically cannot run around in stilettos all day.
In anticipation of tonight’s episode I have put together two looks just for you from the ‘wardrobe’ of Olivia Pope. On a side note, what do you guys think of the show so far and who do you believe is setting the President up for a fall? I for one do not believe Amanda Tanner’s story, in fact I was suspicious of her from the start. What do you guys think? Discuss..
Happy Friday BB&W crew. To continue on my quest to make you ladies a wee bit more fabulous than you already are, I am bringing you the Trend Alert of the Week.
In honor of the launch of Ask A Stylist on BB&W, Christelyn has asked me to do a blog post on career wear doubling as cocktail wear. I am often approached by businesswomen as well as engineers, lawyers and doctors who ask how to be fashion forward in an environment that is very conservative. In most cases, their closet is filled with dark colored clothes that are not only depressing but that does not portray they personality at all. It is almost as if they are all drones, clones even, of the person in charged creating an environment of Corporate Stepford Wife-ism.
Inspired by the hustle-ish-ous-ness of KimmayTube, I am going to wear my boring grandma’s auntie-bun with a new-found flair.
I know you like your boots and all, but spring is here and it’s time, chicas.
