A Quick Note About Glowing Up: Wearing Aminah Abdul Jillil Crystal Bow Pumps at ATT’s Humanity of Connection Event

This was me, yesterday. Same woman, 10 years ago. Many times, we get frustrated because we have big dreams that we’ve yet to attain. Sometimes, it’s all a matter of time, and perfect timing. The Claire from 10 years ago was walking these same New York City streets, in cheap shoes with broken heels. I was made fun of for wearing cheap shoes.

The Bomb Life 101: It’s Important to Remember Why You Started; Wearing a Balmain Blazer, Striped J.Crew Pants, and Givenchy Sandals

I’m a creative person, though I think it’s taken me a while to ‘claim’ that. I always feel like I’m more practical and business minded…. creative isn’t an adjective I’d use to describe myself. My life is busy (y’all see me popping on and off of planes and moonlighting at various events). But this Memorial Day weekend, I had a rare moment of silence. I didn’t have one backyard BBQ or late night bashment to attend, so I started planning…

J. Lo Style Diary: A J.Crew Collection Floral Top, Rag & Bone Gold Skater Skirt, and Jimmy Choo Rose Gold Pumps

Happy Monday! So the ultimate highlight of my weekend was meeting Jennifer Lopez at a listening party/brunch for her new AKA album: Wonderful, gracious, fierce, and flawless are just a few of the words that resonate after meeting her! I kept my look short and sassy (in tribute to la Lopez) in a Rag & Bone skater skirt and a J.Crew Collection Floral top: I completed my look with a YSL clutch and Jimmy Choo Gold pumps. I’ve worn both…
