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.
