The Happiness Prescription: Expressing Gratitude Every Day for Life and Good Health

It’s been a dark past few days. In addition to today being 9/11, one of the deadliest days in New York and US history, a few days ago, the fashion world lost two beautiful souls: style influencer Kyrzayda Rodriguez and stylist Michael Mann. I was shocked and saddened by their passing–both were young, vibrant, and gone much too soon. Many times in life, we can get weighed down by all that’s going wrong. When I tell you life has not…

Inspired by Harlem’s Fashion Row, I wore one of the featured designers, Kimberly Goldson, along with Gucci Accessories: I was recently quoted in New York Magazine’s the Cut, thrusting a spotlight on the lack of black bloggers on the front row during Fashion Week: I’ve been going to Fashion Weeks internationally since 2007, and it always seems to…

Photoshoot with Arian Simone: Appreciation and Admiration for Women Who “Makes it Happen” Wearing Nichole Lynel and Simone I. Smith

Her story of bootstrapping her career, going from sleeping in a car to working with greats such as Will Packer, Chris Brown, and more, was inspiring–and reminded me a lot of myself. We got along swimmily and were each other’s ‘wing women’ during the BWIH festivities, acting as each other’s camera woman while snapping every…

Finance & Finance: Save Up For Items On Your Lust List (Don’t Steal; Reflections on the Clermont Twins, SimplicityxStyle, and More)

Yesterday morning, we reported that Shannade Clermont of the Clermont Twins was arrested for allegedly stealing a dead man’s identity and using his credit cards to spend thousands on clothes, rent, and flights. This incident is the 2nd time I’ve heard of women we’ve featured on Fashion Bomb Daily being arrested for stealing–seemingly all for the love of labels and the limelight. One of the most talked about cases featured was one of my favorites, @SimplicityxStyle, who was submitted by…
