Happy Friday, friends!!
Last night was a late one, but I must prepare for a talk I’m giving at Columbia Business School’s Black Business Student’s Association conference today! I am beyond nervous, so I’m going to get my thoughts together.
Before, though, Mail Bombs.
Kei says, ” I know these are basic jeans, but I really like the dark grey color, fit and simplicity of them.”
Get her full look here:
Bria types, “Do you know where I can get a shirt like this?”
Chris Brown is a fan of DNine Reserve’s $38 Marilyn Monroe ‘Smoked Mortenson’ shirt:
Get yours in white, black, or green at www.d9reserve.com.
Alexis writes, “I saw this dress that Elle Varner was wearing and was wondering if you guys had any idea who it is and where I can purchase.”
Of course! Elle posted up in a $188 Lotus Dress by Ekineyo:
Get yours here.
Rachelle says, “ Hi, I saw 2 Chainz video featuring Nicki Minaj and I fell in love with her sequined crop top.”
“… I assumed there was no hope of me getting it since it was worn by a celebrity. Then weeks later I came across a picture on Tumblr with a regular girl wearing it!!!”
“I know it’s achievable; can you tell me where to find it? Or at least who makes it?”
Yep! The ‘regular girl’ is none other than Former Fashion Bombshell Shayla of the blog All Things Slim. Shayla gives outfit deets on her blog, and thus divulged she (and Nicki) were wearing a $129 beaded bolero from Zara‘s Accessories collection. Shayla posted her outfit back in August, and as we’re almost in November, I don’t think the top is available anymore.
Try your luck on Ebay to see if you can find someone willing to hand theirs over.
Cici is known to rock a mean Louboutin! Though I couldn’t find her exact boots, you can certainly get the look with these:
In a wardrobe query, Tasha types, “Where can I find faux black leather legging pants?”
Sure! Get the look here:
Kai writes, “I’ve searched all over the web trying to identify Fergie’s studded crossbody, but have had zero luck.”
” Any idea who makes it?”
Not sure, but it looks like it could be an iteration of this Givenchy studded mini bag:
It’s obviously not exact, so if you know, please chime in.
Which brings us to Unsolved Mail Bombs!
Jerry writes, “Hi i saw this picture of Christina Milian on one of the blogs and was wondering if you could tell me who her sweater is by. It’s sooo cute!”
Natasha screams, “HELLO, MY NAME IS NATASHA.. MY BIRTHDAY PARTY IS NOV 24.. IT FITS THE PLACE IM HAVING MY PARTY PERFECTLY!! I TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHERE DID LAURA GET THAT DRESS SHE HAD ON IN THE PICTURE WITH NENE IM DYING FOR THAT DRESS.. OR SOME A LOT SIMILAR”
Lastly, Abbie had a question for all of you. She wrote, “Can you please give some feedback on websites like romwe.com or sheinside.com? Are these trustworthy sites to shop for great fashion finds? The sites look fishy to me at times, but some of their things are ULTRA cute? I’m sure many people (on a budget!!) like myself are thinking the same thing.”
I’ve personally never shopped at those sites, but if you have some insight, let us know!
Now let me get my speech prepared. Wish me luck!
And stay tuned for more F Bomb fun.
