Talent Queen : Solange Directed Her Own Calvin Klein Campaign

Solange Knowles has grown and evolved over the years into a huge creative takent that we see today

We clocked Solange’s rare eccentric talent all up and through the visuals of her album A Seat at the Table, and I remember being super hype when I learned that she’d be directing SZA’s music video for her single, “The Weekend.” 

Well, Solange has changed the game again!

The artist recently dropped photos of her new Calvin Klein #MyCalvins campaign on social media!

You already know that that this isn’t going to be your classic white undies look, because of course Solange is going to add her unique flair to it! And not only did she shine in front of the camera, but she directed the campaign as well! 

Solange rocked her Calvins in some solo pics, but she also enlisted the help of R&B singer Kelela, singer Dev Hynes, musician and songwriter Caroline Polachek and musician Adam Bainbridge (also known as Kindness) to join her in the beautiful pics, Bustle reports

In case you’re wondering, YES you can buy these looks for yourself. The prices range from $10 to $148. 

Solange DOES it again!

The GLOW Up 7 : Paint The Town

To: All

From: myself and some amazingly dope sistas

Subject : Paint The Town

________________________________________

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!

Eccentric FIND : Suspenders


Kikirajx0

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!

Eccentric FIND : Ruffle Coat


Model Stafani Milano

A lot of us are intriguly in love with this nude ruffle coat style it screams Im HERE and I OWN the scene.

I love the length of the coat worn with the length of the boots or heels. Not too long that it drags the ground either well depending on your height. The soft fabric seemingly are important components to my eye. You want the coat thats not bulky, and moves in motion. A straight sheath does not create quite the same elegant, graceful and sensual effect. This ruffle coat can easily be dressed up or down.

Its the conversation maker for sure! I located 2 boutiques Swankaposh and Snazzy Clozet thats selling it….Now. Only difference is 20 bucks…so no big difference.
