Mail Bombs: Rihanna’s J Brand High Rise Skinny Jeans & What’s My Name? Missoni Shorts, Sanaa Lathan’s NAACP Striped Alice + Olivia Dress, and Trey Songz MTV VMA Gucci Boots!

Hey Guys!
So I’m finally recovered from my birthday festivities. Thanks to all of you for your lovely comments and well wishes…I was smiling like a Cheshire cat all day:) At any rate it’s back to work for me and preparing for Fashion Week. Oh yes, and Mail Bombs!
Let’s go:
First up Jaranne said, “I am in love with Rihanna’s high-waisted jeans and I wanted to know where I could find them or something similar.”

“I‘m a curvy girl, so stretch would be preferable. Thank you!”
Rihanna attended the Clippers vs. Heat game in a pair of $215 J Brand High Rise Skinny Jeans.

The jeans are a cotton/lycra blend, so should be perfect for your curvy frame. I’ve personally ordered J Brand jeans before, and generally have to go up at least one size from what I normally wear. With that in mind, get a pair below:

Some very avid Rihanna fans have left several comments on this post, asking where to get the shorts she wore in her video for “What My Name?”

Rih Rih paired a striped H&M jacket with pum pums from Missoni’s Spring 2011 Resort Collection:

Visit for store locations and buying details.
Kamilah was intrigued by yesterday’s Beauty step-by-step post featuring Sanaa Lathan…but was more interested in Sanaa’s dress.

She said, “Who is her print dress by? You showed us how to get the look but not her dress! Lol … Please let us know!”
Sanaa wore a red pair of $735 Christian Louboutin Bianca pumps with this striped dress by Alice + Olivia:

Unfortunately the dress is no longer available for purchase online, but if you can find it at your local Saks, it’s on sale right now for $138 (marked down from $330). Visit for store locations.

In a male Mail Bomb, David asks, “I would like to know what boots Trey Songz wore to the MTV Video music awards??”

“… I was wondering if you guys can help me identify them for me I think they look hot and I would like to buy myself a pair. I’ve tried looking for them myself but no luck and I live in NYC (can you imagine?)”
We feel you! After a quick search, we found that Trey was wearing these $690 Gucci Black Leather Boots:

In a beauty bomb Allana says, “I am a dark skin women (mac NW55) and often find that the foundation, concealer or powder I’d like stops short of my color.”

“… I was wondering if you knew what makeup counters offer customized makeup? “
Danielle says, “Pretty sure I did a post over the summer called “Foundation for Very Deep, Dark Skin.” Prescriptives is the only consumer company I know that does custom mixing, but they’re currently only sold online for now.”

Lastly, Max says, “Since you guys are so good at giving us the inside scoop on everything fashion and beauty, I’m wondering if you can help me with a question. I love Kelly Rowland’s lipstick in the Wildfox Love Potion photo shoot….”

“…You guys already schooled us on her sweater, any chance you can tell me what lipstick she’s wearing?”

Danielle says, “I don’t know the exact lip color Kelly is wearing in that shoot, but you can get a similar look with either MAC A Quiet Roar Lipglass, MAC C-Thru Lipglass or MAC Spite Lipglass.”

That does it for today. I’m going to hit up the gym, then enjoy my weekend.
Hope you guys have fabulous days.
Until Monday…
