Happy Monday, Bombers and Bombshells!
As I type, I am staring at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis Missouri! Yesterday, I gave a keynote at St. Louis Women who Brunch! The day prior, I had a book signing at Nesh NYC (15 Gansevoort Street), with a conversation moderated by June Ambrose.
Guests sipped Belaire mimosas and nibbled on treats by Chef Jeff, all the while indulging in any nuggets of wisdom June and I had to impart about the fashion industry, entrepreneurship, and life.
Tamiko White, who, along with Nesh owner, Bree Chambers opened the space to us, remarked that ‘God was in the room.’ I couldn’t agree more. If someone had a question about their next step or had fear in their hearts about fulfilling GOD’s purpose for them, they received direction, advice, and support.
June and I are not life coaches and don’t profess to be life experts, but one thing we have in common is that we both left corporate environments and stepped out on faith to live the life we chose. My only hope is that our courage and drive inspire others to follow their dreams. We want everyone to win!
You guys came armed with great questions, and also fly outfits!
Black and white with sheer and fringed elements were on tap for this fashionista.
Fringe is certainly in, as witnessed by this attendees fringed jeans.
A handful of Fashion Bombers did come to slay! I say yes to everything!
A floral kimono was the perfect accent to rose chrome sneakers.
This Bombshell stopped traffic in gray tones.
Fashion Bomb Daily staffers came to represent! One of our latest additions, Cassandre, will be handling interviews and exclusive content! She killed it in a black crop top, leather jacket, reflective sunnies, and a pleated metallic skirt.
Our senior writer, Marsha, worked a printed set.
We mostly communicate via email and GroupMe, so they were happy to finally meet!
And speaking of Group, I grabbed one with staff members Cassandre and Marsha, along with Creative Director Kelley Carter.
We are small, but scrappy, and growing at a fevered clip. As I run around, these ladies keep everything running!
At any rate, it was a fun time!
Thank you to everyone who came, purchased a book, and offered a gift. I appreciate you!
Thank you to June for moderating, and to Tamiko and Bree (not pictured) for opening Nesh’s doors to us!
Lastly, thank you to Chef Jeff, Belaire, Ampoé, and Cantu for providing treats and eats for our guests.
Next stop? LA for Cocktails with Claire x Ty Hunter. We’re gonna have some Bomb panelists and special guests. Stay tuned for the reveal later today. Get your tickets here.
