Weekend Fash Killers!!

I love seeing Big Sean and Naya Rivera together. And I admire the fact that they both look appropriate and are not overdone in the matching department. Big Sean is sporting a gray bowtie with black tux and Naya is wearing a form fitted brown suede panel dress and stiletto sandals.

Amber Riley is all smiles in an houndstooth-esque and black panel dress with cute black boots and a top bun. And yes, Congratulations are in order to Amber for winning Dancing With the Stars this season!!!

Last but not least, The Obamas looked sophisticated and savvy at an event last evening. Michelle Obama stole the show in an emerald green and chiffon number that had straps that draped perfectly on to her toned forearms. The President Barack Obama looked flawless in a black tux with black bowtie.

Let's offer a round applause to a few of the best dressed Fash killers of this past weekend.

Cakes and Lace!

These two things possess intricate details, quilting, lace, gold accents and more!

I love the way that the skirt and dress is satin with lace accents. The headscarf just adds a touch of class to the already sophisticated look.

The cake is a 4 tiered, gold, confection with red flower additions and pearls.

Beyoncé' Gisele Knowles - Carter!

This morning a well known fashion and celebrity blog posted this pic of Beyoncé carrying Blue Ivy and discussed what she was wearing as they normally do. And I am not saying there is anything wrong with that as I often do the same thing.

But when I saw this pic, the fashion is not what stood out for me. What I saw was a woman, a woman carrying her big girl toddler, so that she doesn't have to wake her up to walk. I saw a mother, who is not single but is very independent, that works her heinie off performing, dancing, creating and producing more than 8 hours a day traveling the world with her toddler. I saw a woman who wasn't born with a silver spoon but took what God has blessed her with and worked her way up and is still working.

I see a woman who probably asks herself if her life is the best life for her child or wonders is she being the best mother that she can be? When I looked at this pic I saw me, me in this woman we have come to know as Beyoncé. 

Just a human, that looked a lot like myself. I know what it feels like to carry a toddler and want to shield that baby from the public. I know what it is like to work hard and not have an end in sight. Minus the private jet, the clothes, the blonde extensions and the public perception of Beyoncé she is a struggling mother, just like you and I. Her struggles may not be financial but no ones life is perfect.

So, if you can remember I ask you to look at people with a human eye a loving eye. Think not so much of what you see, but sometimes it's what you don't see that really matters. We were all born the same way and we will all die. Let's restore some humanity to the community.

Peace, Love and Happiness!!

50 Shades of Grey

Here is a look at the two actors who will be taking on the roles of portraying the two infamous 50 Shades of Grey characters Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

I personally, have not read this book but have read numerous Facebook statuses and have over heard many conversations about it. The book is about a blooming erotic relationship between Christian and Anastasia which entails steamy scenes rooted in bondage, dominance and sadistic sex.

The movie which will be based off of the novel was previously set to release August of 2014 but has since been rescheduled to an unknown future date.

Are you excited there is a movie on the works or would you rather just enjoy the book???

Notable or Not?

Spied this image on Kelly Roland's Instagram page and she looks quite amazing!

The aquamarine colored taffeta long skirt is bundled and ruffled at the waist reminding me of a flower in bloom. The diamond bodice (if a dress) or bodysuit (if a separate) is like a diamond flower bud blooming from the skirt dress petal.

This look is not only fashion but visual art!

Do you think it is Notable or Not?

New Music from the History Makerz!!

The History Makerz are back, with another hot collaboration on Jacob Latimore's "This Is Me 2" mixtape. The mix can be downloaded by following this link. The song, New Girl, Track #9 is actually produced by Lee Major and credits songwriters the History Makerz, Reuben McCray and Sauce Boys.

This mix is good body of work and this song is a favorite of mine. Jacob sounds as if he has taken some of his life experiences and growth and put them into the sound of his new music. What a refreshing gesture of a young artist! Jacob Latimore is a very talented young singer, dancer and artist and "This Is Me 2" just reiterates that fact even more.

Keep your eyes and ears open for more to come from the History Makerz and Jacob Latimore future collaborations and individual projects!!!

Isabel Marant for H&M Preview!

Isabel Marant made an announcement back in June that a lovely collaboration with H&M would hit stores this autumn.

Well, ads are now in rotation and fashion media are on the prowl checking out the pieces in person in preparation for the November 14th release date! What good would a high powered fashion collaboration be without validation from the fashion media supremes?

The box blazer pictured below is visually captivating with all of its color and seemingly tribal inspiration. The piece definitely caught my attention. What do you think? Will the collection be Notable or Not?

Notable or Not? I C U!

This leather, zippered eye pouch by Kenzo is very eye catching to me! I can see the luxurious quality of the leather and very detailed embroidery from the image.

I think that Kenzo is very well known for the way that they combine creative and out of the box fashion ideas in a modern and stylish way.
