The Fashion Bomb Life: Our Staff Dinner at Da Silvano
By Claire

So The Fashion Bomb has grown significantly since I started waxing poetic about the perfect black pumps and vintage shopping back in 2006. To show appreciation to the ladies who write regularly, provide interesting, entertaining commentary, and contribute to the success of the site, I decided to treat Jihan, Faith, and Cliché to a dinner at Rihanna’s favorite restaurant Da Silvano (I felt it was very fitting) and also snap a few pictures for an updated, beautiful masthead.

Of course we had to dress up:)

Celebrity style whiz Faith opted for a peplum top and ASOS skirt, punctuated by Seville Michelle Anastos earrings, a Jewelmint cuff, Nine West sandals, and a Paranee Ongwat ring.

Jihan worked a summer ready Boxing Kitten for Urban Outfitters Magic Eye dress, neon Aldo flats, Asos earrings, and an Urban Outfitters necklace.

Intern contest winner Cliché looked chic in a pop pink dress she snagged at Urban Outfitters.
And as for me…!

I tried the colored suits trend in a cobalt blue two piece by Aqua accented by a Topshop necklace, Cashhimi bag, and United Nude sandals.

What do you think?

*True Story, we ran into industry fixture Andre J on the way to the restaurant:

He’s a fan of the site and wished us many more years of fashion fabulousness. Thanks, Andre!

    In the 3rd group photo, y’all are looking at Jihan like she said something crazy, lol. Looks like fun times.

  6. loverly says:

    Oh, and after seeing these pictures I’m like 90% sure that I saw Jihan at JFK last week. She walked past with a girl who had just been on my flight from T&T. I was waiting for my ride, nearly delirious and thought, “Hmmm, that looks like the funny girl from Fashion Bomb,” then promptly forgot about it til now. Random!

  7. Meka says:

    Very nice ladies…I need those United Nude sandals in my life!!

  40. Claire says:

    Thanks y’all!
    @LawyerChic The sandals are comfortable *now*, though I can say that the first time I wore them, I was limping:
    @Nehl Vuitton and Danielle have been gone for a minute! Vuitton is off studying fashion in London and Danielle is spending time on her own site. We’ve had several of interns/staff members past and present….this is the current crop. xoxo

  41. Dom says:

    You ladies look GORG! I love those heels Claire, and Cliche is working that dress! I saw it in Urbans and tried it on–looked odd on me. But she’s killing it!

  42. Jihan says:

    Thanks for the compliments, guys!

    I actually don’t know why my calves look like that, as I haven’t been to the gym in several months *covers face in shame* I will return!

    and re @loverly yes, that was me picking up my cuz from T&T! Small world!

  43. mi manning says:

    ask that MAN where he got his weave from! gotta get it!

  44. Faith says:

    Glad you guys liked all of our outfits, we had a lot of fun! Yes, we did spend most of the time laughing hysterically at Jihan. She’s cray in the best way possible!

  45. Cute! You ladies are the bomb! Thanks for all of your hard work, as you should know by now, I love the site! I have been rocking with Claire for a long time now. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!

  46. Lani says:

    Jihan looks so adorable the necklace could have been wrapped twice.

  47. Angie says:

    Love Claire’s outfit! I’ll definitely have to try this trend.

  48. Marsha says:

    Congratulations on all of your success! You all look beautiful and I saw great poses mixed in. Fashionbomb is a daily staple for me, thank you.

    Thanks for the update on past interns and Danielle. I do miss her beauty posts.
