Fashion Bombshell of the Day
Fashion Bombshell of the Day: Iris from Philadelphia
By Claire

We’ve gotten some great submissions lately for Fashion Bombshell of the Day!
Could it be because a national retailer* was recently scouting for fresh faces in the Bombshell section? Maybe!
At any rate, today’s Bombshell is fab-u-lous. Her name is Iris and she hails from Philadelphia:

She was submitted by her friend Chelsea, who says, “Iris Barbee Bonner is a well known artist from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.”

“If I had to describe her style it would be artsy, laid back funk :)”

“…She is like the sweetest girl EVER and makes hand painted t-shirts.”

“I know she’d be PERFECT for Fashion Bombshell of the Day.”

“She has a blog at www.thesepinklips.tumblr.com.”

“….She also customizes ANYTHING from t-shirts to even shoes!”

“…Contact her at thesepinklips@gmail.com for price and buying info.”

Cool, funky, and creative? Definitely a Fashion Bombshell. And I’m gonna need one of those shirts, a painting, (and that dress) ASAP!!

*KMart was looking for diverse men and women with great style for their next print campaign. One of their first stops was the Bombshell of the Day section!

  28. Coldplayer says:

  40. Meka says:

    Love!!!! Something fresh not a copy!!!!

  41. LivvyV says:

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her style. You go girl have no suggestion nothing negative to say. She looks like she has a blast everyday and thats what style is about. Loving those shoes, is she selling them?

  42. sun.kissed says:

    Loves it! Her tees and all of her artwork are fly; Teyanna Taylor wish she could…

  43. U really don't know me says:

    Her artwork is great. I just refuse to take denim cutoffs and graphic tees as “fashion/fly/bombshell” or anything other than just rolled out of bed in my dorm room, late for class and will just wear this crap out the door.

  44. Miss Moon says:

    Those painted boots are the stuff that dreams are made of! Love ‘em!!! Excellent Bombshell!

  45. Brittany says:

    Oh no no no. I do not like this at all. Where is the fashion? On top of that, her makeup is really bad. There’s no cohesiveness in any of her looks. I don’t think random clothing choices and a bold shoe and lip equal fashion.

  46. dayuum_chelz says:

    @LivvyV yes she does! hit up her email for buying

  47. Gigi says:

    Definitely working her creativity. Love it

  48. jihan says:

    she is AMAZING love love love! I need that dress!

  49. Oh Ms Iris is DOING THE DAMN THING! Can we say VINTAGE COLOR BLOGGING? Mama you are a Picasso after my own heart.

  50. missTIAUNDRA says:

    This post gave me LIFE! I LOVE her hair!!! And her style is SICK! I gotta head to that site and get me a painting AND a t-shirt ASAP!
