The Bomb Life 101: Take the Time to Reflect on How Far You’ve Come Wearing a Dress by Persepshen Clothing + Hanifa Neon Suit

Twice in the past couple weeks, I have returned to 'where it all started' for me in my career. Back in 2006, when I started Fashion Bomb Daily, I worked as a Researcher/Reporter for Time, Inc. Researchers were in charge of fact checking a magazine, because once something is in print, you can't take it back! At any rate, I worked at 50th and 6th avenue for 4 years at a 9-5 before deciding to start my blog, quit my job, then embark on the...

5 Few Things You Should Know Before You Take Photos at Brooklyn Botanic Garden

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a hidden gem, perfect for admiring beautiful blooms, cozying up to flowering trees, and if you're an influencer, taking pix (hello!). It's almost as if the flowers, particularly resplendent in the Spring, are quietly beseeching you to strike a pose in front of their gorgeous petals. Taking professional photos inside the expansive garden is possible, but you'll need to know a few things before you go: You have to...

I’ve Worked from Home for 10 Years: 5 Ways to Stay Sane and Be Productive During the CoronaVirus Quarantine

After quitting my job, moving to Paris, then moving back to New York, I found myself self employed (read about my journey here). My basement became my office, and it was up to me to create work--and entertainment--for myself. Was I bored? Hell yeah! And I missed the water cooler conversations. And while I got human interaction from going to parties and industry events, when times were slow, I was beside myself with boredom. But I have survived,...

It’s OK to Take a Social Media Break: Self Care and Mental Health in the Digital Age

Happy Saturday, folks! As I type, I am sitting here in my cornrows and pajamas, watching TV. I was sick as a dog on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day--bedridden with the chills, a headache, the works. Since then, I have been on the mend, but definitely taking it easy (save a trip to LA for the Golden Globes--I had to get it together to go to that!). Whenever I get sick, my mother always presumes it's because I'm doing too much. And I must say,...

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...

Bomb Life 101: Be Patient and Trust Your Journey + If One Method Doesn’t Work, Try Another

It's been two months, but it looks like we have finally had somewhat of a breakthrough with our Instagram situation! It's been 2 months of anxiety, stress, shifts, and transitions, but I am happy to say that we have a glimmer of hope and our situation will hopefully be resolved soon. We were doing things one way for 8 weeks, and one shift in strategy, and we're back in the game. I'll be honest: I felt totally discouraged. I felt like there was...

Today, we have an "Ask Claire" Query! @Zudoaririkameishi types, "If It's not too much to ask, with the removal of FBD, how do you stay motivated with such a big piece of yourself and brand being taken away? Major love and peace to you Miss Sulmers!" Major Peace and Love to you! I'll be honest, it's been a REALLY tough month. An issue I thought could be resolved in a week or so is dragging on, and a major part of our business as we know it has...
