So as you know, last weekend, I was chillin in the ATL. My girls and I went out to Piedmont Park…


..and came across this lovely young lady…
…who looked summer ready in a form fitting white shirt dress, gold platform Mary Janes and a colorful bag.
Simply chic!

Fashion, News, and What Nots

*Here’s a Real Talk quickie.
Last week the weather was beautiful, so I decided to pull out one of my fave silk shirtdresses to bless the day. I steamed it up, threw it on, but was dismayed when this happened:
…that’s right! SERIOUS static cling. The men were loving the look…but the cling was so bad it was almost comical (well I thought so)! No amount of tugging could stop the dress from sticking to my legs.
I asked around and one of my coworkers recommended rubbing a dryer sheet on the inside of my dress and on my legs. Voila le resultat:
…problem solved!
My colleague also told me that hairspray sprayed on the legs can work as well.
You might’ve already known this trick, but I was clueless!
A dryer sheet totally saved my day:)

*In other Louis Vuitton news, the house is suing an artist for creating this image:
Artist Nadia Plesner created this image to satirize the lack of media attention a genocide like Darfur gathers compared with the relative overexposure of skinny women with little dogs and designer bags.” Read more here. [Make Fetch Happen]
*It’s confirmed! The Independent reports that Vogue Italia’s July issue will contain almost exclusively black models!
Regarding a possible backlash in Italy, Franca Sozzani, Italian Vogue’s Editor in Chief says, “Maybe in our country it is not the best idea. But I don’t care. I think it is not my problem if they don’t like it – it’s their problem.” Amen! When oh when will American Vogue follow suit? [The Independent]
