So I’m fresh off yet another international flight! Had to come to town for TWO weddings and of course Fashion Week!
I am exhausted, but Mail Bombs are always live. Let’s go!
First, Corinne says, “I am so in love with Solange’s earrings.”
“… Where can I get them?”
Solange’s melting Chanel earrings weren’t on the Chanel.com website, so we figured they were ‘inspired.’ Adriana found the lucite lookers in gold for $38 at www.hellodrama.com:
And I found these melting CC monogram necklaces for $32 a pop at www.kikastyle.com:
In another Knowles bomb, Nikki asks, “Who is the designer of Beyonce’s skirt?”
“…I love it!”
According to Red Carpet Fashion Awards, Beyonce is rocking an amalgam of these looks from 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Spring 2009 collection:
Next, Meghan says, “Can you please tell me who makes the shoes Kimora is wearing?”
Kimora jumped on the Camilla Skovgaard train with Halle Berry and Keke Palmer, rocking the brand’s $395 T Strap Sandals with Diane von Furstenberg’s Jeanne Wrap Dress. Get her exact look plus a few affordable alternatives below:
Now for some wardrobe queries!
Samantha says, “I am going to the Urban League Black College Football classic on the 18th in New York. There will be tailgating and performances. I’m basically trying to meet a man. LOL. Any wardrobe suggestions?”
LOL indeed Samantha! Here’s to keeping it real. I’d say that you should mix comfort with femininity, look saucy without trying too hard. Emphasize your bust in a casual v-neck or button up top, and pair with on trend dark jeans. Play up your accessories (sunglasses, necklace, bracelets) to stand out, and opt for comfortable, practical shoes. Fall is on its way, so I picked out a few plaid top picks along with flat boots:
Lastly, Theresa says, “I am looking for a pair of hot knee high boots in black or gray!! Price range??? Anything a college student will be able to afford. “
Here are 10 knee high black boots under $100:
That does it for today!
I am beyond exhausted, but will update just a bit more before hibernating.
Have amazing weekends and enjoy the three day holiday!
