Claire’s Life: Bevelations with Bevy Smith Wearing a Nicole Shante Black Dress and Azzedine Alaia Sandals + What We Could All Learn from Bevy Smith


Happy Friday!! A few days ago, I was honored to appear on Bevy Smith’s Sirius XM show, Bevelations. A lot of you might know Bevy from Bravo’s Fashion Queens, but I came up in the industry knowing her as one of the most connected, most beloved fixtures in media, fashion, and entertainment. I remember I first met her back in 2005. I literally harassed her to meet with me (I e-mailed her several times, and pulled every card out of…

The Bomb Life 101: Remembering My Aunt Andrea in an N. Natori Kimono from Lord & Taylor


My Aunt Andrea has passed away and joined the angels in heaven. She was battling illness for quite some time and may now Rest in Peace. While reading over her obituary, one thing that stood out to me was her love of shopping. She loved to shop! Her favorite past time was perusing the racks at Lord & Taylor (it runs in the family, apparently). Perhaps it’s eerie or just coincidental that my event last Saturday was at Lord &…

The waitress, for some reason, thought it was ok to disrespect me. I’m generally a sweet and nice person. But in that moment, I had to check her and be a little…curt so that she could understand that I’m not the one. A lot of times…

The Bomb Life: Woe Magazine’s Cover Event at Lord & Taylor in Balmain, It Factor Boutique, and Gucci


Today was the very first time I allowed a staff member to recap an event honoring me! Behold, Charise’s recap here (you can spy her on the right in lime green!). It was lovely to have a different perspective and edit other people’s thoughts. Behold, another step towards letting FBD run on its own, so that I can live the Bomb Life! Long story short, Woe Magazine had a great event celebrating me! Bombers and Bombshells gathered at Lord &…

Lobster with Lemon Gate: Don’t Eat At Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse In Washington D.C’s City Center (950 I St NW)


Sometimes I wonder if I’m getting old? Why does so much stuff bother me? But then I think: I don’t complain that often. I complained about Marriott when housekeeping spilled liquid on my laptop (this does not happen everyday). And now I’m complaining about Del Frisco’s at 950 I St NW at City Center in Washington, D.C. Because my experience was bad enough to blog about it. I had a long, full day today. I celebrated my Woe Magazine cover…
