My Entire Thoughts On Boycotting Target

Altuzarra For Target (Image via Target)

I was online today doing some browsing when I saw a hashtag #BoycottingTarget and I had to find out why. So apparently, designer Altuzarra is collaborating with Target to release some pieces, but none of them go past a size 16. Therefore, the plus-size community is furious, reasonably. Disclaimer: I don't like the word plus-size, but I'm using it here because that's what they use. Maybe it's because I'm not in the fashion industry, but I tend to assume that not all brands will come in all Continue Reading

Shoe Crush: Aminah Abdul Jillil Bow Pump

Aminah Abdul Jillil Bow Pump - Black & Blue

My Sweet Potatoes, these shoes have been chasing me in my dreams. I dream of owning them. I dream of wearing them. I have a pair of black panty hose that in my head will go perfectly with a short skater dress or skirt ... and of course these pumps. I want them in black and in blue. Oh, my good Lord, I want them BADLY. But they cost $215. Each. If you are reading this post right now, please know that this is a sign from the good God Almighty that you should buy me one (or both) of these shoes. Continue Reading

What I Wore To Sade’s & Pelumi’s Wedding

What I Wore

I blogged about Sade's and Pelumi's wedding, so you have already seen what I wore. But I drove to Funmie's house to take these pictures, so you're gonna look at them, damn it! Because Igwe slept at the hotel with the wedding party on Friday night, I had no one to take my pictures on Saturday afternoon, so I drove to Funmie's house (about 10 minutes away from me). These pictures were rushed cause I had to drive an hour and 28 minutes to the wedding in Washington D.C. I forgot to take an up Continue Reading

What I Wore To Dinner At Morgan State University

Wasn't sure how formal or informal dinner would be, so I was trying to stay in between

Yesterday I told you about the infamous dinner I attended at Morgan State University. Today, I'm showing you what I wore. By the way, the reason why I'm doing these outfit posts is because it's something I've always wanted to do but never really had any clothes I wanted to show you because as you know, I'm currently going through a fashion disaster. I still haven't updated my closet, but I decided to start where I am with what I have, and then we can grow together, no? Anyway, the dinner was Continue Reading

What I Wore On Easter Sunday

Feature-what-I-wore-Easter-Sunday

First of all, Happy Easter. Yes, I realize that it's Friday, but see, what had had happened was that I didn't go to bed early on Saturday before Easter. I was up till about 2:00 AM and I typed up a Happy Easter post, and I thought I clicked publish. But apparently I didn't publish it. Why is this important now? Because (1) I just realized that the post never came up and it's still draft and (2) In the post, I mentioned that I don't get new dresses for Easter anymore, but that I would endeavor to Continue Reading

A Love Letter to My Reebok Skyscapes & a Giveaway

Reebok Skyscape 3

Dear Reebok Skyscape, In how many ways can I love thee? When the beautiful people at BlogHer asked if I wanted to get to know you and write about you, I obliged - mostly because I was excited at the prospect of wearing new shoes and taking pictures in them. I didn't know much about you, other than you being pretty. Then you came in the mail, and then I put you on --- and all of a sudden the pendulum swung. I was no longer wondering how to these shoes, I was wondering why I hadn't gotten to Continue Reading

Does Being A Gay Man Make You A Fashionista?

Derek J

There's a trend going on. I don't know when, why, or how it started, but it's out there and it might be here to stay. There are gay men, and there are gay men who think they are fashionistas. And well, both of these things can in fact be mutually exclusive - contrary to what popular media may think.  It's like anything that's fashion related cannot be complete without gay men. Really, really gay men. You know who has inspired me to write this post? It's Derek J. Derek J, the celebrity Continue Reading

Kim Kardashian In A See-Through Dress. Do We Like?

Kim-Kardashian-See-Through-Dress

Recently, I have found myself being very attracted to see-through clothes. I can't wear them to work (without a camisole under), but when I'm not going to work, I wear the heck out of it. Not too much, but I do love it. Anyway, I saw pictures of Kim Kardashian in this see-through dress, and I just love it! I may not have the guts to wear see-through top to bottom, but maybe just the top. I don't know who made the dress, but it's beautiful, and Kim Kardashian wears it well. Maybe it's the Continue Reading

Well, depending on what the clothes look like, but the starts of the 86th annual Oscars are just adorable.                     Absolutely Continue Reading

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Talks Fashion In Elle March 2014 Issue

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on Elle March 2014 Issue

There I was, reading through my Elle Magazine March 2014 issue, and there she was: Chimamanda --- my favorite best friend who doesn't know it yet. The title of the article is, "Why Can't A Smart Woman Love Fashion?" And yes, why not? I know that people typically think of fashion magazines as picture books, but I quite enjoy reading the articles. I don't read everything, but when I do, I enjoy it. And I especially enjoyed this one. Read it Continue Reading
