Happy Wednesday, folks!
I am headed to Philly for the day on Friday to do a little promo for our upcoming Fashion Bomb x Better than Success Brunch on August 18th! At the brunch, we’ll be chatting with designers Lovello Elizabeth and Iris Barbee Bonner of These Pink Lips, followed by a Better than Success live podcast moderated by my co-host Nicole Purvy!
In case you wanted more intel on Bomb Philly Designers you should know, read on about our top 5 picks:
1. Lovello Elizabeth (@LovelloElizabeth)
Specializing in athleisure pieces, Lovello Elizabeth has onesies and separates in a range of colors, made for relaxing in style.
Slip on Lovello Elizabeth with sneakers for day, or pumps or sandals for a cool yet casual night on the town.
2. These Pink Lips
Iris Barbee Bonner of These Pink Lips creates jackets, dresses, and custom catsuits splashed with graffiti style writing and cartoons, sporting phrases like, “She’s the Boss!” “Pussy Not War,” and “Pussy Power.”
Her bold colors and unique designs have found fans in Mary J Blige, Alicia Keys, Cardi B, and more.
I’m a fan!
