• Mail Bombs: Keke Palmer’s Taffeta Skirt, Kanye West’s Tom Ford Velvet Blazer, and Miley Cyrus’s Pilates Class Two Tone Leather Sleeve Zara Jacket!

    Happy Friday!
    Faith and I hit the town last night, so Mail Bombs should be…interesting. Put it like this: We’re gonna put you guys to work a bit towards the end with unsolved Mail Bombs. But let’s see what we can do!
    First up, Tierra writes, ” I was trying to find out where to get this skirt or something similar?”

    Since when does Keke Palmer sing (do I live under a rock?)? At any rate, not quite sure where Keke got her skirt, but you can get a similar look with this $365 Elizabeth and James Pratte Taffeta Skirt:

    The color doesn’t match up, but the silhouette is spot on. Get it here.
    Next up, Bianca says, ” My boyfriend has been looking for a velvet blazer. We came across this picture of Kanye with the blazer he liked PLEASEE tell me what this blazer is and where we can get it!”

    “… Thanks soooo much!”
    According to several sources, Kanye was spied out with Kim in a Velvet Blazer by Tom Ford (similar to the middle option):

    Kanye West has impeccable taste, and Tom Ford blazers can cost as much as $3,000. If you can swing it, inquire at www.tomford.com.

    Talise writes, “As a motorcycling riding, Helmut Lang loving, Lisbeth Salander type of gal I had to find out about Miley Cyrus’s leather army jacket.”

    .. It’s just so me. She wore it [the other day] after leaving her pilates class. It’s pretty hardcore. Who do you think it is? but most of all I hope its still available.”
    Lucky you…it is! Miley covered up in what looks like this super cute $150 Zip Parka from Zara:

    If you don’t have a Zara near you, shop online at www.zara.com. I’m about to order one of my own…
    Erica says, “Evelyn and her daughter Shaniece were out at an event and her daughter has this amazing peekaboo multi colored mesh dress on.”

    “Where can i find it please!!!”

    This picture is very old, which means the dress is most likely sold out. At any rate, Shaniece was fitted in a dress by up and coming designer, Charles Lynch of Charles Chic.

    Lucky you, the dress recently became available again! Get yours for $300 at www.charleschic.bigcartel.com.

    Travis writes, ” So I came across Jaden Smith’s page on instagram and saw these pants.”

    “… Never really been a fan, but the color makes them stand out. do you know who makes them?”

    Jaden Smith? Sure…! We couldn’t find his exact pants, but you can get a similar drop crotch look with these:

    Danielle says, “I love this pic of Kelis.”

    “… Could you help me find a dress like this or help me with some suggestions?”

    Yep! Get a similar wrap maxi dress look with these:

    In a wardrobe query, Ophelia says, ” I’m hoping you can help. I have a upcoming dinner party to attend & need some help on the type of shoes & accessories to go with this dress..Thank you :)”

    With such a simple dress, you can go crazy with shoes. If you don’t want to wear black or a neutral metallic, you can have fun with animal print. Try these on for size:

    And now for a few Mail Bombs that I didn’t have time to find:
    Kaycee says, “ I’ve been looking for 3 months for this dress with no luck.”

    “I’ve looked high and low, google, asos, tpf, polyvore and I’ve come up with nothing! Please help and thank you in advance for whatever help you can provide.”

    Tiara says, “I’m in love with her sunglasses, who makes them????”

    And lastly, Aria says, “Please help me find the leggings Ashanti wore in this pic this year!!!”

    “…I need them in my life!!”

    Well, help the woman!!!
    I’m off to upload today’s Bombshell and then relax.
    Have great weekends, y’all!
    *Just for fun, check out a few fun pix from last night:

    With Blogger Micah Jesse

    With celebrity stylist Ty Hunter

    With 106 & Park host Rocsi Diaz

    Rocsi Diaz is a fan of The Fashion Bomb! She’s super sweet (and actually way prettier in person).
    I’m wearing a one shoulder dress by Sachin & Bibi with one of my favorite wardrobe pieces: a zebra print Ralph Lauren trench I copped at a thrift store (I took it off later in the night, natch). Melody Ehsani Earrings. Rocsi’s dress is by Torn.
