The Bomb Life: The Importance of Building a Network

Happy Monday! It’s been a little while since I’ve written here. I’ve been laser focused on building my personal business in the wake of our temporary IG hiccup. I am happy to report that things are on the upswing and we might be close to getting back to business as usual! In the meantime in between time, I’ve relied heavily upon my network. People willing to promote the new page, friends happy to offer an ear, and family looking to…

The Bomb Life 101: 5 Big Mistakes Designers Make

Happy Tuesday, Bombers and Bombshells! I’ve been working in fashion for over 10 years, and in that time, I’ve encountered numerous designers–some who ‘get it,’ and others who get in their own way. In my experience, I’ve encountered 5 big mistakes designers make. Read on: 1. Not investing in marketing When I had @FashionBombDaily, I had a huge platform, so I never had to pay to market myself.

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…

Go Where You Are Celebrated, Not Just Tolerated: New York Fashion Week Spring 2019 Day 1 in a Kimberly Goldson Suit and Gucci Crystal Sandals

Happy Saturday, from Las Vegas! Last week, I popped into Fashion Week for just one day to attend the Discount Universe show. 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…

The Bomb Life 101: Don’t Chase Money, Chase Greatness

Fashion Bomb Daily was born out of a desire to fuse my love of passion with writing. My initial musings to myself (and friends and family) gave me life and so much joy. I’ll never forget the first time I ever took analytics for the site and realized we had gotten 300 pageviews. To me, that was HUGE. Who were these 300 strangers reading my quibbles about trying clothes on and returning them, stopping by Manolo Blahnik sample sales, and…

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

I first met Arian Simone, CEO of Fearless Mag and Public Relations guru, while on a shoot for Ford during Essence Black Women in Hollywood. 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…
