If You Can’t Get Into the Fashion Club, Create Your Own: Wearing a Balmain Blazer, Alexander McQueen Skirt, and Givenchy Sharktooth Boots at Paris Week

I was THIS CLOSE to writing a post about how the fashion industry loves our culture but does not love us. I was naming names and providing receipts! But instead of lead from a place of WTF, I decided to do all things with love, and talk a bit about the beauty of creating your own lane. I’ll tell a little story. When I was 16 going to Paris, there was this club called Les Bains Douches. All the girls…

Parisians are Conservative: Day 1 à Paris Wearing an Alexander Mcqueen Sweater Dress and Givenchy Boots

On my first day in Paris, I met up with some friends for brunch, then we walked to the Marais for even more revelry. For the day, I kept my look ‘simple’ in a sequin addled Mcqueen sweater dress and Givenchy boots. I honestly had forgotten how conservative Parisians are. Yes, they are well dressed. I saw so many ladies slaying the streets today! But it’s about subtlety: neutrals like all black and all gray. The statement bag. Simple but…

Claire’s Life: At the Atlanta Hawks Game with Kim Blackwell, Kandi Tucker, and Don Juan + Gucci Mane Proposes to Keyshia Ka’oir + Toya Wright’s Book Launch at Cru

So when I come to Atlanta for Thanksgiving, I typically keep it low key and kick it with my family. Making runs to the grocery store are the high points of any given day. So I was excited when my mentor/shero Kim Blackwell invited me to watch an Atlanta Hawks vs. Pelicans game last night. Isn’t she fly in her Gucci sweater and Brogue Pumps? She stays DRESSED! I didn’t have any expectations aside from watching the game! And because…

New York Style Diary: At Samsung’s Mashable Fashion Dinner in a McQ by Alexander McQueen Tiger Print Dress and Gianvito Rossi Black and White Pumps

Hey! So yesterday, I had a series of great meetings! I’m trying to scale Fashion Bomb Daily and help it achieve its greatest potential! Doing so takes many talks. Because I was in business mode, I went for a conservative look with a Brooks Brothers button down and a McQ by Alexander McQueen tiger print dress. I added some kick with black and white Gianvito Rossi pumps. This look brought me back to my junior high and high school days.…

New York Fall 2015 Fashion Week Style Diary Day 3: A McQ by Alexander McQueen Dress and Alice + Olivia Thigh High Boots

So I guess that by Day 3, I was tired of freezing, so I wore a McQ by Alexander McQueen Dress and Alice + Olivia thigh high boots. I also gave full on fur a rest, slipping on an Andrew Marc coat I’ve had for years. Tom Ford Carrie shades, and my look 3 ensemble was complete. I’m curious to know which outfit (if any) is your fave thus far! Let me know in the comments;) My laptop is at…

New York Style Diary: A McQ by Alexander McQueen Gray Paillette Embellished Sweater Dress, Gianvito Rossi Suede Thigh High Boots, and a Stella McCartney Falabella Bag

Happy Thursday! So yesterday I had 3 meetings in the city, so I decided to get a little glam. As I said here, I love sweater dresses and thigh highs in the winter. I’m a simple woman! So for yesterday’s series of rendez vous, I paired my Gianvito Rossi cuissards with a McQ by Alexander McQueen paillette embellished dress. One of the pitfalls of my job is that I see all these gorgeous things then somehow justify buying them. I…

Happy October! As the season changes, my lust list continues to grow, sadly. So I’ve been eyeing Alice + Olivia’s Dae Over the Knee Boots for a minute! On the eve of a recent trip, I decided to go ahead and get them, so now most of my fall outfits are going to be built around my new thigh highs. I’ve been drooling over Alexander McQueen’s white shirt dress since the summer, though at $1,295, that’s going take some time.…

Day 1 London Fall 2014 Fashion Week: A McQ by Alexander McQueen Tiger Dress, Duckie Confetti Fur, and Balmain Thigh High Boots

I told you I’d be getting some good use out of my Balmain boots, didn’t I? I wore them on the plane coming to London, and wore them yet again for my first day at the shows. I have been a stress ball since I touched down! I had shows/speaking engagements almost as soon as I arrived, so kept my look simple on day 1 with a McQ by Alexander McQueen dress and a Duckie Confetti fur. Though I have…
