Hey Guys!So since I’ve been back, I’ve been pampering myself a bit, ya know, getting fancy:)In preparation for New York Fashion Week, I decided to treat myself to a Minx Mani/Pedi (if you don’t know what it is, check out this vintage post).I was intrigued by the design options and the fact that it looks fresh for up to two weeks. But after a run in with a salon that didn’t have enough foils in stock, then paying close to $150 (!!!) at another salon, I knew there had to be another way to get the look without running all around town or draining my bank account.Introducing Nail Rock (www.nailrock.com):Created by artist Zoe Pocock, the fun nail foils are designed for budget fashionistas who want the look of Minx for less. The process is the same as Minx. You take an adhesive design, place it on your nail, then file it down. After letting the design set for one minute under a hair dryer, you’re done!They’ll be available soon at Asos and Topshop. Find more information at www.nailrock.com and on Nail Rock’s Facebook Page.Until I can try Nail Rock out for myself, I’ll have to be happy with my Minx:What do you think?

Hey Fashion Bombers!Today, I wanted to give you guys a peek into my closet.Most of the time, I dress up for school regardless of occasion or weather:1. Blackout Sunglasses, 18.  2. Guess Duran Blazer, $168 CAD.  3. Sperry Top-Sider Bahama deck shoe, $50.  4. David Yurman Thoroughbred Bracelet, $395.This summer is all about my Sperry Top-Sider Bahama deck shoes.  They ooze versatility and have a classic appeal.  My David Yurman Thoroughbred Bracelet rarely leaves my arm, as it goes from day to night easily and pops with anything from sneakers to dress shoes. I got it for my 21st birthday, and it’s become a staple piece for me. A classic black jacket, like this Guess Duran Blazer, instantly upgrades a pair of jeans. And my Blackout Sunglasses add the necessary dash of cool.5. Levis 520 Blue Steel Jean, $54.  6. Thierry Mugler A Men cologne, $55.  7. Holly Readers, $14.  8. Lacoste Crew Neck Cable-Knit Sweater, $102. 9. Nike Dunk High Earthquakes, $90.I absolutely love Levis 520 Blue Steel Jeans! I’m a slim guy, so they strike the perfect balance between not-so-skinny and not-so-baggy.  Bonus: they’re very easy to dress up or down.  Thierry Mugler A Men cologne is a must have for any guy.   It’s light lavender scent with musk, tar, and vanilla undertones makes it perfect for the entire year.  The cracked pattern and the colors of my Nike Dunk High Earthquakes add the right amount of quirkiness to any casual outfit. And I love to chill in my Lacoste Crew Neck Cable-Knit Sweater (worn with wayfarers!) and my fresh eyewear swag (love my Holly Readers).What do you guys think of my faves?Keep it fab!~Vuitton*Read here for Claire’s Fave Things, and here for Adriana’s!

Model Jourdan Dunn is known for her cool street style, no holds barred commentary on the ins and outs of the fashion industry, and impeccable bone structure. So it’s no surprise the Brit mannequin held nothing back when she chatted with Net-A-Porter’s The Edit magazine for an in-depth interview on racism in the industry, her son, and so much more.Though just 22 years old, Jourdan has accomplished a great deal for her age, most notably walking the Prada runway at age 17 (the last to do so before her was Naomi Campbell 11 years prior), gracing the cover of Vogue Italia, appearing during the Olympic Closing Ceremony in her hometown, and fronting the campaign for fashion houses including Yves Saint Laurent and Burberry, among others.Despite her long list of accomplishments, Jourdan’s career hasn’t been without struggle due to racism in the fashion industry. She’s been turned away by a client who “didn’t want anymore black girls” for a casting and a white makeup artist who didn’t want to touch Jourdan’s skin on a photoshoot. Naturally, these instances upset her, but she didn’t give up, thanks to some very valuable lessons learned from her mother: “I grew up wanting to be my mom. She always seemed to make things work without ever complaining. She whips me into shape.”It was big news in the fashion industry when Jourdan became pregnant with her son, Riley, at the age of 19. Riley’s father was her long-term boyfriend of five years, who was sent to prison for possession of cocaine with intent to sell just a short time after Riley’s birth. Riley also has sickle-cell disease, which is one of the reasons Jourdan has become an advocate for it, giving her time and support to the Sickle Cell Society.Regardless of some of the setbacks in her life, she has an amazing support system including mentors Pat McGrath and Edward Enninful and friends Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, and Jay-Z: the latter whom Jourdan works with on his YouTube channel, Life + Times with her cooking series, Well Dunn with Jourdan Dunn.Jourdan has long been one of my favorite models and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for her.Check out the entire article at www.net-a-porter.com.Thoughts?#gallery-1 {margin: auto;}#gallery-1 .gallery-item {float: left;margin-top: 10px;text-align: center;width: 33%;}#gallery-1 img {border: 2px solid #cfcfcf;}#gallery-1 .gallery-caption {margin-left: 0;}/* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */

TGIF!!I’m finally back in cold NYC after a wonderful trip to the West Coast. I took a red eye last night, so am a little groggy…still, let’s see what I can crank out (before I pass out).Mimi types, “ I’m a lawyer by day and am always looking for ways to spice up/not stifle my flair for the fierce without ruffling work feathers. Saw this skirt suit and died…”“…would be beyond perfect with my nude Tribtoos for those days when my blue wool suits aren’t getting it! Can you tell me who is the designer of this skirt suit?”Yep! Evelyn paired $1,395 Christian Louboutin Zoulou sandals with a $818 Diamond Shape Jacket and a matching $500 Jacquard Skirt by Ekaterina Kukhareva:Purchase both pieces at Kukhareva.com. Azjanae writes, “Where can I get this jacket? I love the color.”“P.S I hope they have my size…XL is so hard to find these days.”Though it’s hard to see C Milli’s full jacket, based on my research, it could be Iro’s $1,195 Anabela blue leather jacket:Jason Wu also has a $3,795 blue leather jacket with similar zips and buttons:I’m not sure about the XL status for either option, unfortunately. Get them, plus options for less (in more sizes) with these:More Jason Wu…Suzi writes, ” I absolutely love the look of these leather sweatpants.”“…However, I do not have a bank account like Beyonce’s and cannot spend over $1,000 on pants. Is there any way you guys could find some alternatives to these pants that are a little more budget-friendly?”Sure thing! Real leather pants are going to still cost a pretty penny, but I did find a few for under $1,000:More Lulu…Christie writes, “ Hi I was wondering if you knew the designer of Kim’s knee high boots or if you know anywhere I could get a similar pair of knee or thigh high suede boots?”Not sure, but you can get the look with these:More Report Signature…Tallena writes, “Can you please tell me who made the jumpsuit that Lauren London wore to the 2012 BET awards?”” Thank you in advance.”Lauren appeared on the red carpet in a $675 Alexander Wang White Jumpsuit with Extended Lapels, similar to this:The BET Awards were a while ago; Lauren’s jumpsuit is no longer available. Peruse current Alexander Wang styles at AlexanderWang.com.Jamelia says, “Hello wanted to know if you could tell me where I can find the outfit Keyshia Dior had on in this pic?”Keyshia Ka’oir’s 155,000 fans collectively lost their minds over her $94 cross strap crop top and $110 landing strip leggings by UK designer Simon Preen:You can buy the combo at ASOS’s marketplace. Cop her crop here and her leggings here. Siobhan wrote, “Toya Wright posted these Jeffrey Campbell shoes on her site. I live in NY so I can’t go to the boutique she said was selling them. Do you know the name of this shoe and where I can get them?”I contacted the Press Rep at Jeffrey Campbell, who wrote, “That is the style ALLTHEWAY and is available at Envi Shoes, Tilted Sole and Solestruck.”Get Toya’s exact pair for $165 at Tilted Sole here.Lastly, Ayana types, “Where did Cynthia Bailey from the (Real House wives of Atlanta) get those glasses? Those are absolutely fabulous!!!”I was unsure, but Yakini of RealityTVFashion.com tipped me off to Cynthia’s recent Instagram post, which said, “Who wants a pair of my black fashion glasses? New fashion eyewear line coming soon! Stay tuned.” So it looks like in addition to launching a line of spirits, Cynthia will be designing eyewear. Follow her on Instagram @CynthiaBailey10 for updates.Now for Unsolved Mail Bombs!Yaya writes, “Thank you for always teaching me about fashion n trends! I have a favor of you. I need your help to find where they sell this dress.”Lastly, Cynthia says, “Hi I wanted to know if you could help me find this bodysuit that Amber Eunquie wore please.”….At any rate, we’re having a Bomber and a Bombshell today, and I think you’ll love ‘em!Stay tuned!Smootches.
