Don't you just love a good street runway show! The relaxed style in the French Riviera proved to be effortless resort wear perfection. It's obviously a vacation destination where good fashion sense is appreciated.

Happy June fellow Mavens!!! Well I must say May was so eventful that it seems to have flown right past me without stopping to say good morning and how are you today, would you like a cup of coffee?? But in actuality, I had so many wonderful experiences during the month of May that I wanted to do a quick recap of it all. 

It all started out with conversations of mental health issues due to Charlemagne The God's phenome...

As Wedding Season dawns upon me and Innovative Arts Photography kicks it's gears into hi-speed, I still love to be engaging with the fashion community keeping an ear to the ground whenever possible and I'm soooooo glad I caught wind of Fashion Takeout! The Black Owned fashion boutique boasts of high fashion that will "break necks not your pockets" so you know I had to pop in and see for myself. Co-owners Bettyna Theo...

Hey Glitterdolls!

So let's TALK! This is such a "MUST-HAVE" conversation. Everyone wants their Beyonce moment, and I am sooo delighted when you come to me to fulfill that request. But truth be told, "the moment" costs! As it should! I have discovered that many do not understand the cost differences and breakdown between shopping at the mall and custom designs. Some, have never had anything custom made before, and othe...

Here's a special shout out to the most epic Black History Month I can remember in recent years. I started my #BlackHistoryMonth with a bang at the Historic Ali Cultural Arts center in Pompano Beach at the amazing exhibit of 3D original art by prolific Nigerian Artist Adewale Adenle whose work addresses important figures in African Diasporic history {~on exhibit through March 29, 2018~}. Then my friends and I bought o...

After over a year of anticipation, in just a few days,  we finally get to visit Wakanda. Marvel’s Black Panther is hitting theaters on Thursday, February 15th, just in time to make this the most lit Black History Month ever.

Black Panther is already outselling every previous superhero film in pre-sales. Theaters everywhere are already sold out for opening weekend and scrambling to add more showings to keep up with the...

When I think about Aguy Smith of DezignNationProductions the words clever, prolific, innovative & avant-garde all come to mind instantaneously. A creative genius in her own right not only as a fashion show producer but also as an exclusive celebrity stylist, she and her team have taken fashion shows in Miami to another level raising the bar of runway slayage to a height only she can hurdle. I arrived to the Hallandal...

If you know the phenomenal sisters Simone & Trudy (Yanique) like I do then you know how magnetic their personalities are, and magnetism like theirs could only amount to the growing levels of success that they experience in their business Natural TrendSetters. Natural TrendSetters is the first natural hair care center in south Florida & has become a driving force and proven trendsetter in the industry. As one of the f...

The reigning Queen of black & white glamour is one of my biggest fashion heroines. I first saw the amazingly talented Janelle Monae in a video on my Facebook timeline in about 2010 when I immediately became hooked! A beautiful young Black woman with a soulful voice like Lauryn Hill had a baby with Michael Jackson & James Brown was naturally The Godfather! Monae's multi-faceted talents are leading her in a phenomenal...

One of the greatest fashion icons of our time is also a Caribbean Queen born & raised in the tropical sun, surely surrounded by good food & unbeatable work ethic. As a fellow islander how can we NOT look to her regularly for inspiration on how to be unapologetically US!!! Some of my fave looks are when Riri rocks out like "straight BBHMM cuz I'm a rockstar" Riri. We haven't met yet but I take the way she endorses...

As a self-employed Wedding Photographer I get to meet with many prospective clients face to face in coffee shops or the privacy of their homes. When planning my business #OOTD I most enjoy emitting an aire of class, artistic style & intelligence. So when I saw these "I'm A Smart Chick" socks on sale at Jo-Ann's they seemed to pulsate with a golden halo while softly calling my name...along with a jelly bean pair just...

When my friend Taj McGill of Talk Is Chic Radio invited me for a 2-day fashion outing last weekend I was truly ecstatic. Especially since I've been working my head off this wedding season, I was sooooo glad for the mental break Mavens, now...WHAT TO WEAR?! I kept seeing red in my mind so I went in red crop top with red high waist skirt, red flower crown, Elouinia Exantus' wired-wrapped red glasses and for a Spring to...
