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!

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, and now…

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!).

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…
