The Bomb Life: Speaking at the Westminster Schools of Atlanta + Interviewing Tameka Raymond in 3.1 Phillip Lim and Manolo Blahnik Hangisi Pumps

Today was such a full day!
I’m actually flying off to the Bahamas in a few hours, but wanted to recount the events of the past 24 hours.

So I’m in Atlanta! I try to come down every year for my mom’s birthday (which is the 28th), and then I typically stick around and kick it. A few teachers at my high school, The Westminster Schools of Atlanta, wanted me to come speak to students, so I decided to do it around the same time. And I figured since I was down in the A, I’d try and get some great content for Fashion Bomb TV!
I was supposed to shoot with Derek Blanks (who is ahmazing), but my schedule was way too crazy to find time to fit it in. So here’s my day via Iphone shots.
It all started with getting my makeup done by Jeremy Dell.

Jeremy Dell is the truth. He does makeup for a lot of Reality TV stars (Cynthia Bailey is one of his clients), and I always try to book with him when I come home. When I walked into his location today, I was pleasantly surprised to see Erica Dixon of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta just finishing up. Of course, I asked for a picture:

She is gorgeous and sweet as a Georgia Peach.
Then it was off to my alma mater!
My first stop was an Economics class, where they asked me a litany of intelligent questions about the business of blogging.

Then I took a break for lunch, then spoke to another group of students about issues of diversity at the school, in the fashion industry, and in the world.

My message to both groups: follow your passion and be the change you wish to see in the world!
After all that fun, I headed to Tameka Raymond’s house to do a Closet Confessions video for Fashion Bomb Daily.

The video should be up next week, but let me tell you: her closet is beyond fabulous, and she has more clothes and accessories than you can imagine! She was also a very gracious host. We had a great time, and I hope you can see and feel that in the finished product.

At any rate, for the day, I repurposed a few items in my closet. I’d already worn my 3.1 Phillip Lim sparkly number as a dress with my Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps for LuisaViaRoma’s blogger conference in Florence:

For Fall, I decided to just slip a pair of jeans underneath and wear the dress as a tunic/top.

Sometimes you gotta recycle!
At any rate, I am pooped, but I must pack for my next adventure!
More to come!
Love & Light,
Claire
