The Hotness: The Geometric Print Dress

I’m always one for an off-the-shoulder anything, since I love my shoulders more than anything else. Add in the print, and its the perfect date night dress for a gallery opening and dinner. It’s a curvy girl’s dream dress.
Dress, $50. Pre-order at MyEleganceBoutique.com

2015 White House Correspondent’s Dinner

Caption this picture.
I love that the president can laugh at himself. This year, Keegan-Michael Key from the hilarious Youtube duo Key & Peele got to have some fun with the President as his Angry Translator.
And of course, the stunners:

Cover Swag: Wendy Williams For Ebony

I remember listening to Wendy Williams waaaaay back in the day on 98.7 Kiss FM in New York. I followed her religiously on the radio, from Hot 98 to WBLS where her legendary gossip destroyed names with a flick of a microphone. I remember all the crazy interviews including the infamous Whitney meltdown. I even remember back in the 90’s, when she had that falling out with Angie Martinez. I think it was Bugsy on the turntables and he forgot to turn off his mic while a song was playing, and all of NYC got to hear the juicy details of what went down. I even had the chance to call in, and jokingly called her a drag queen. Those were the days. 
Of course Wendy has moved on to bigger and better things, and I congratulate her.
How you doin’, Wendy?




Weekday Swag: Rihanna for V Magazine

The Hotness: Antik Batik Pouch

Nothing touches my eclectic soul like intricate beading and embroidered mirrors, the likes of which remind me of my times in southern India, where I came across a band of talented crafting gypsies in Goa. Worn as a clutch or a low slinging bag, it is a bohemian delight.
Bag, Antik Batik, $224

Zoe Kravitz: Stained Beauty

 
Zoe Kravitz was absolutely glowing at the premier of Good Kill at the Tribeca Film Festival on Monday. Her makeup was a fresh and soft approach, easily replicated with beauty’s secret weapon: the stain. Not as shiny as a gloss, and not as deep as full on color, the stain delivers because it gives you just a hint of hue, leaving you looking dewey and pleasantly flush.
As always, the best tip for a fresh face is clean, glowing skin, so always start out with a cleanser and moisturizer. Then add in your concealer, and gently contour, as Zoe does. After your face is primed, add in a dab of these makeup touches to give you that stained glow!

Tarte Cheek Stain in Yummy Rose, Sephora, $30; Perfect Eye Pencil in Desire, IMAN,  $10; Kimmel Soft Kohl Kajak Eye Liner, $4, Drugstore.com; Man Luxury Lip Stain in Pink, IMAN,  $9; Ultrabland Facial Cleanser,  LUSH, $17;

Retail Sunshine: Zuvaa

I just found a ray of light online. Zuvaa, an African design marketplace, is taken from the word Zuva, which means sunshine in Shona, the language of Zimbabwe. I’ve always loved anything using the colorful West African fabrics known as ankara, and this is an amazing one-stop shop for eye-popping African-inspired fashion.
