So I’m in lovely Cleveland for my college friend’s med school graduation! I’m off to participate in the ceremonies, so had just a little time for Mail Bombs. Let’s go!
A lot of you were interested in Kim Kardashian’s sunglasses from This Week in Chic:
Kapri_H said, “Kim Kardashian is always well put together. Who makes her sunglasses?”
A quick search found that Kim was wearing a $420 pair of Nico Sunglasses by Tom Ford:
Get them at Madison LA.
Lisa says, “I want to know where I can purchase Kelly Rowland’s sequined dress in the music video “Gone”…”
“.. And whether there are any alternatives to it?”
Hey! It’s hard to see the full front, but you can get a sequined black tank dress at any of these retailers:
Ashley asked, “I was wondering if you knew who made the dress Shaunie O’Neal was wearing at the Basketball Wives Reunion Show?”
According to her stylist Mr. Bradshaw (who we interviewed earlier this week), Shaunie was wearing custom Gasoline Glamour heels with this $156 Deryn dress by LA based brand Supertrash:
Get yours here.
Ashley says, “I know this dress is way out of season and I know I’m breaking a rule of the Mail Bomb…sorry, but I really would like to know where I can buy a dress that is similar to the one Monique Jackson (the one to the right of T.O.) is wearing.”
“… Thank you soooo much for your time.”
No problem, Ashley! Hey, gold star for even reading the rules:) At any rate, I found you these options, hope they work:
Lastly, in a wardrobe query, Tedisha says, “What should I wear with this Bebe Foil Print dress?”
“… I am beyond lost. I have an XXL magazine event to go to tomorrow night and I have no idea how to make this dress look red carpet worthy.”
Cute dress! I’d say it’s such a standout piece, you can get away with a platform black pump or sandal. Keep it simple! Get sultry with a smoky eye. Though I’d normally advocate a red lip, I think you can get away with a plum or even a deep berry.
As an aside, Kim Kardashian has worn something similar (as a matter of fact, your Bebe dress might be a little ‘inspired’ by her Sass & Bide).
She paired hers with Proenza Schouler sandals and a black clutch. It works!
That’s all I have time for today.
Hopefully once we find our intern, we can solve a lot more!
I’ll be announcing internship candidates next Wednesday. There are a lot to consider…
Until then, have great weekends.
