I am so excited to be covering Cocktails with Claire Sulmers & Miss Diddy this weekend, here in Atlanta! These girls are doing big things, and they have been for awhile now. Sulmers, who is a Harvard graduate, and is fluent in French, has an AMAZING resume. You can read it here. Miss Diddy is equally impressive, a self made woman, who happens to be the ONLY woman party promoter in Hollywood. She is also a Hennessy (my favorite drink) Key Account Manager.
And while these ladies live two different lives on two different coasts, they both have one very important thing in common–fashion. They are INCREDIBLY fashionable.
Every once in a while, you’ll have the pleasure of meeting someone who’s super talented. Every now and again, you’ll have the opportunity to meet someone else who is extremely passionate. At some point in life, you’ll meet someone who really, truly cares about people and their well-being…and occasionally, you’ll find someone who puts a smile on the face of any and everyone they come into contact with. But it’s rare–very rare that you’ll meet someone who possesses all those qualities and more. Today, that’s why I want to introduce you to Fashion Expert, Shayla Courtney. Thank me later.
(LOS ANGELES, CA) Draft day has finally arrived and it’s one of the biggest days in the lives of many NBA hopefuls, but in the lane of fashion the guy you want on your team is designer Waraire Boswell.
Last night, the internet was in a tizzy as we all frantically posted pics to social media, itching to give our two cents on celebrity ensembles as they graced the red carpet at this year’s Met Gala. The Met Gala has been popular for some time now, but some of you didn’t even know it was a “thing” until you got wind that Solange was in an elevator beating Jay-Z like he stole somethin’ last year. While I enjoyed the fashion, and the pomp and circumstance, some of you just didn’t seem to get it. Let me explain.
In case you missed it, Serena Williams is gracing the cover of next month’s issue of Vogue, and she is serving Black girl magic per usual. Her mane is blowing in the wind, and her barely there makeup gives us a chance to admire her beauty and her impeccable bone structure. Basically, she’s SLAYING!
This hasn’t been a good two weeks for Kanye. He’s acted an ASS at the Grammy’s once again, and now, he’s put out a fashion line that almost nobody likes. Including me. Now normally, I’m a Kanye fan. I’m the first to run to his aide when he’s gotten a little out of control. Personally, I’ve always felt he was a misunderstood musical genius. But today, I surrender. There’s no way I can defend his constant assault on other artists, or his horrible attempt to step into the wonderful world of haute couture.
I came across a beautiful image of a little baby girl via Twitter. And of course, like most things on Twitter, the moment was ruined when I saw this caption: *Born with 2000 unread text messages* This is something that I’ve seen happen time and time again. Cute kids being assigned grown up lifestyles, implying that they do grown up things. I can’t help but wonder why are we in so much of a hurry to assign children adult roles? Babies don’t have cell phones.
Y’all. I’m back. And I’m just a tad bit annoyed. It’s happening again. The appropriation of Black culture by White mainstream culture. Feels a little like Deja Vu. You know, first there was that whole calling Elvis Presley the creator of Rock and Roll thing, and now this. Appropriation of Black culture has always been a “thing”, but I don’t think it reeeallly started getting on my nerves until now.
