Janelle Monáe is a 360 degree of soon to be a legendary iconic artist ball of “DAM!”. A queen from Kansas City that literally pushed through her blueprint of life. Who would have thought she would go from the cliché of New York City Broadway To Hotlanta (Atlanta ) Stardom . Capturing the eyes of Big Boy ,joining a local circuit band . He was admirably impressed. From there she created her own collective compilations of music catalogs. From Sean P. Diddy , Prince , OutKast (group) , Erykah Badu, Esperanza Spalding, Solange, and Miguel. Ms Monáe is a force to be reckoned with . Standing outside her box , because she would not let you box her in . I would say she rolled out her own dam red carpet without permission .
She was honored at the CFDA Awards earned the nickname of “fashion’s Oscars” for its star-studded guest list and attendees’ elaborate fashions. She listed a few A-listers as being her sheros Gloria Steinem and Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, Monáe was honored by the CFDA Board of Directors for her contributions to January’s 2017 Women’s March .
She also paid tribute to her family proudly boasting and humbly praising the fact that her mom was a janitor and father a trash collector and step father a postal worker . Which lit fire to her iconic fashion sense . she stated ”My family wore those uniforms with pride , dignity while continuing to provide for herself and sister “. My tribute to Ms. Monáe is not enough to add to her never ending accomplishments . She is not just a woman she is a movement .
So i finally got my DSQUARED 2 heels! Just like the one my girl crush Ms. Rhianna Fenty had on . I waited 24 days for these beauties to arrive from Germany . And they were worth the wait .
When they arrive they were heavenly! The light busted through the box , while my jewels sparkled like it was Christmas ,the light literally burst through the box (kidding ) . As my heels slept in a pair , I noticed my heavenly heels came with a shoe bag in black . I tried my 10 1/2 heels on and it was like butter in bottle. The shoes also came with extra crystals to add , just in case a crystal falls off . Overall I am very pleased with my shoes .
By the way I added a funky pair a fur kittens from The Rainbow store in Harlem. they added that Hollywood touch to the scene.I must pair these fur girls with the perfect ensemble for a hot night of fun .
priced at $115/ fur heels $40

I recently attended the shoe launch of the double debonair Von Boozier twins February 17, 2017. Though , I have always wanted to meet them , Their accolades are covered in celebrity credits. I was excited this time to show up . As i walked into The Refinery Hotel the Quero store sat cozy in the corner of the Hotel. The ambience was serene and quaint . The shoes were planned out like soldiers in formation . The most delicious pairs of shoes I had ever seen . Each shoe hand crafted /custom done. From the rich colors of browns , reds, blues, greens . There were custom leather bags ,and wallets satchels to name .
The very thought of it being created by two successful men was not surprising to me . My people (black people) created almost everything . (research with shade lol). I am definitely gonna purchase this well made product, Once I have save my coinage . The night was filled with socialites , spectators and fabulous folk like myself ha!. I enjoyed the company of the Atmosphere , wishing the twins the best in all their endeavors.
Hey Guys ! Its has been a minute since I have written a blog . How ever this one is special , because It’s not about Fashion . It’s about a talented man , black man who didn’t always believe in himself. Terrence Terrell; model, actor, and added; Arthur . Terrence Terrell did not always believe himself . You may know him from major video plays with Beyoncé , Lady GaGa , Nbc ,Showtime, Fox show appearances. And currently Criminal Minds.
But Before the bright lights and big stars , Terrence has not always love who he was , like most of us ,(women). Society will have you believe that only women have self-love issues . He grew up feeling awkward and known as the ugly duckling . Well we know what happens in that story . She /he turns into the swan . Terrance was teased about his nose , head, his voice . All the negative drama is enough to stagnate ones life. But he manages to overcome all theses adversities into triumphs . By rising bigger than his flaws . Terrence has released his new book called ”Blacky’. An uplifting story about a young boy’s journey to self-confidence . It’s about a young man realizing how to appreciate himself . This was a much-needed positive piece of love to add to our children and adults of our society.
Terrence just wrapped up his feature in Arianna Grande’s video ,”Everyday”. And still appearing on new episodes of ”Criminal Minds.”
Sometimes being nosy can bring you pain or redemption. For instant i recently snooped through my significant others phone , yup i did it . I was that old gut instinct feeling i had in my stomach for months and months . Well curiosity killed the cat . I caught the same text messages from the same old lady he swore he would never reach out to . A woman knows , it’s just something we do . Well although I am furious with this asshole . I am going to say it was God relieving me from this nightmare . I thank you God for giving me redemption . I am from this lie . Ladies follow your gut .It never lies .
