Can I Be As Fly As The First Lady?

Flowing hair to the side. Check. Flawless makeup. Check.  Sultry, black classy dress. Check.

Over The Line: Viola Davis is Everything

I’m gonna ignore the hate and celebrate this woman to the fullest because she honored so many women of color in her speech but stepping up to the plate and using her power to make a statement. And making history while she was at it, becoming the first Black woman to win the honor of Outstanding Actress in a Drama. She said what she said, and it needed to be said. And that is that.

New York Fashion Week SS16: The Stealth Watch

So I sat quietly this week, watching, noting, indulging. If there was one word I could use to describe this week, it would be disruption. From Kanye throwing everyone off by staging a last minute show, to Givenchy presenting their iconic collection in New York, to Marc Jacobs and his vaudeville nod at the Zeigfield – #NYFW definitely kept everyone on their toes. Here are some of my faves from the collections.  (Click to enlarge)





Gabrielle Union is Perfection: #NYFW

This is why Gabrielle Union is one of my favorite style stars. Here she is on her way to Wes Gordon Fashion show, looking absolutely fabulous in this wrap dress and a clean cut bob. I would rock the hell out of this outfit any day.

Lavish Home: A Perfect Serving


Platter, $150, ABC Carpet & Home

My daughter and I were walking down Broadway the other day, and I had clearly forgotten about the wonders of ABC Carpet & Home. I still have eclectic kitchenware from over a decade ago that I had scored there during one of their famous sales. Circling back, I fell in love most recently with this wonderfully handcrafted platter. Hand-carved with intricate Indian motifs, its white-wash subtly brings out the details in a non-flashy, but intimate way. Plus, anything you place on it will instantly pop with color.

CelebStyle: A Splash of Lime For Bey

I love the simplicity of this outfit. The super-flattering diagonal color of this skirt adds just enough punch to keep the look slick. And that lime. I love lime. Perfect!


Style Inspiration: September Blues


The beginning of the month came and went. I didn’t do my typical beginning of the month rituals, eager with excitement for what the month would hold. I admit it was because I refused to recognize that summer in New York was coming to an end with the opening of September. But on a bright note, that means I can look forward to the brisk, less humid air, sumptuous cardigans, rich denims, and deep hues. Below, some inspiration from some of my favorite bloggers, all rocking blue in one form or another.

Trai Byers in Saks Magazine

I usually don’t post about male fashion on here, but Trai Bryers from the Fox dramatic series Empire is so damn fine. Peep his spread in the latest catalogue for Saks Fifth Avenue, where he helps plug the new Empire-inspired curated selection, launching at the start of the show’s new season.

Venus Williams: Smarts, Style, Strength

Congratulations to Venus Williams for not only being one of the baddest in the game, alongside her sister, but for also securing (for real) her Bachelors in Business Administration from Indiana University. I love it when celebrities, despite their wealth and fame, still take the time to emphasize the importance of working through and getting a degree. Good look Venus.


The Hotness: Alexander McQueen Ear Cuff

I love the simplicity and badd-ass-ness of this cuff.
