The day for fear and fierce is upon us, and I must admit I’m not into Halloween much! Nevertheless , Halloween is a way for both kids and adults to get creative, Im especially excited to see all of the dope Halloween looks blessing social media today. Take a look at some of the favs Ive spotted :
Not only does it seem like bae Yasiin Bey (the artist formerly known as Mos Def) has completely abandoned the idea of retiring from the industry, but now the legendary lyricist is reuniting with fellow Brooklyn MC Talib Kweli for a 3 nights of Kweli’s 10-show tour this Halloween weekend in California.
The duo, who perform together as Black Star, are following up another reunion of sorts from over the summer, when they were both guests on Dave Chappelle’s Radio City Music Hall run. The Black Star performances come ahead of Kweli’s forthcoming album, Radio Silence, due November 17th.

Things have been super mute for Chrisette Michele ever since she performed at Donald Trump’s inaugural festivities.
Well, according to Chrisette herself, she’s been dropped from Capitol Records
She wrote on Instagram,
I complete an entire album and my label decides to walk away from me. Capitol records. I was quiet for a few days… I go into the studio and literally poured out my heart and soul and the label decides to walk away from me?
In what seems to be an social media vent session she also revealed she had a miscarriage
During the Fall and Winter months sleek mesh turtlenecks , bodysuits and floral 2 piece sets are an absolute go-to! It’s an easy base to work with, looks effortlessly chic and might I add is pretty flattering. Leather/Pleather bottoms adds the power of the versatility to a look. I love how Kristin and Ms. Bling paired their tops with these hip-hugging bottoms. Anayal8ter and Tina’s looks are conversations makers ,they refused to play it safe….and definitely paid off as. Just look at that sweater dress on Anayal8er thats a statement piece. Tina’s 2 piece set is bold and different , the red bag and heels ties everything together perfectly.
All these Queens are ready to paint the town with style , poise and confidence!
This webseries hits very close to home with its makeup and breakup scenarios we all know too well. I literally watched it twice in the same week.
On the outside looking in, Brooke (Nicolette Ellis) and Blake(Omar Salmon). appear to be the epitome of #BlackLove until Brooke decides to ditch their two-year relationship for good for her old boyfriend from back on the day.
Being the catch that he is , it doesnt take Blake long to fall for someone new and move on. Once word gets back to Brooke of Blake’s new love interest from her homegirl, she decides to resurface and tries to get her man back. Putting Blake all in his feeling of who to be with.
Also stars Sean Dominic, Emilio Evans, Kamel Goffin, Karmia Berry, and Olivia Gray
Directed & Written by Eric J. Dickens
Catch up episode one and two of Makeup and Breakup Season 1 below before season 2 starts
After watching the second episode, I was convinced that Makeup and Breakup is a amazing web series that I would love to see on Nexflix or Hulu. Dickens has created a masterpiece for the culture. We need to see more of this on tv and less reality shows with club fights and twerking.Dickens is bringing back quality shows.
Season 2 begins Nov 1

For years people have slept on suspenders but I lowkey love them. Plus I’d like to think I have a a great eye for fashion.
These high waisted suspenders trend is growing relentless these days, and actually quite practical for Vegas ( now its getting cooler). Covering the oh-so-alluring ankle while flaring provides a fresh look for Fall and Winter. It also means covering not cute but comfortable shoes, which has its pro and cons. So many of my friends and followers along with myself are choosing to wear suspenders this season.
I copped my suspenders from Touch Dolls for $52 (pictured above) , but Draya got hers for $59 from BDonnas. Dont sleep get your suspenders while you can!
