Who Wears The Pants?

21 Oct

Jada Pinkett Smith does! Jada and her family have been spending much time in the big apple promoting the youngest Smith’s new single, “Whip My Hair”. It is clear where Willow Smith gets her bold taste, her mother has impeccable style. Seen walking the streets of New York with head to ankle Chloe and Christian Louboutin pumps she looked perfectly perfect in a stylish fall look. After months of super skinny jeans and leggings (I refuse to use the term jegging) wide leg pants have come back in a big way. The tweed pants Jada was wearing were extremely flattering on her small frame and made her stand 10 feet tall. If you are petite a wide leg trouser will instantly make you appear taller and slimmer.


Shoe “laced”

Recently Rihanna was seen wearing a pair of Mui Mui patent leather studded Oxfords that would make any shoe crazy women like myself look twice. I am a huge fan of Oxfords, so as we gear up for fall I am sure we will see more of them.

I try my hardest not to like Rihanna but with her impeccable taste (and by her I mean her stylist) in clothes and accessories how can I be a hater?  The shoe retails for $650 and is also available in nude.

Leopard print is back, again! Leopard comes around at least once a year and stays with us just in time for the winter months. Designers from Balmain to Hermes have repeatedly used leopard print in their collections but still have the ability to keep the trend current and up to date according to the season. Like with any bold print wear sparingly, and never from head to toe. A tasteful leopard print dress can be sexy when paired with a bright shoe to punctuate the outfit. You can also try a leopard print shoe for a wow effect. It’s rare that prints are considered a classic but leopard is classy and necessary in a true fashionistas wardrobe.

Lyric Love

2 Jul

There is never a time that the lady Jill Scott does not have lyrics to express any emotion that I am feeling. Philadelphia born singer Jill Scott has words for my love, lust and even my anger. I have loved Jill Scotts music since her very first album but “The Real Thing Words and Sounds Volume. 3” did a beautiful job of expressing Jill’s feeling of hurt and heartache after ending a longterm relationship. Purely coincidence that I was also ending a serious relationship at the time of the albums release date, I felt as though she had written these lyrics for me. “My Love” is perfectly written. Enjoy!

“My Love”

By: Jill Scott

Yo, I’m tripping right,
I heard you got married.
You got married?
No I mean, make any
It don’t really make any sense
I mean, it’s not like I, I didn’t think you were seeing other people or whatever,
I mean I was seeing other people but
You know what this is,
You know what it was, you tsch
I can’t say I really understand though

You chose her cause she’s sweet as pie
Take what you give, even your lies
But baby, are happy without me?
She scrubs your back, washes your clothes
Gives you everything that ask for
But don’t you ever want more?
’cause my love

My love is deeper
Didn’t you know this,
Or didn’t you notice?
(My love, my love)
My love is deeper
Didn’t you know this,
Or didn’t you notice?

Mmmm, what we had don’t need no words
Deeper than anything you ever heard
I ain’t reaching baby,
I know I should be your lady
You say you’re happy
You say you’re great
But you know and I know you really ain’t
You need to come be with me
That’s the way it’s supposed to be


Cause oh,
All I ever do is think about you baby
I hold you in my arms inside my dreams
And I know what I know and what I know is
That no matter where you go
You will always think of me


Who Wears The Pants?

Kimora Lee Simmons does! Seen here in South Africa for the opening of a new Baby Phat store (who knew Africans enjoyed Baby Phat) Kimora wore J’Brands Houlihan cargos to the event. We all know I love my cargos and apparently so do the celebs because everyone from Khloe Kardashian to Jessica Biel has been seen in these pants. The cargos retail for $228.00 and according to my trusty Anthropologie.com reviews they fit true to size, are machine washable making them worth the money.

The cargos are available on http://www.anthropologie.com but most sizes will not be available to order until early August because of their popularity.

Kelly Rowland does! I will do my best not to comment on Ms. Rowlands ever-changing lace front wig but I do adore her outfit. Seen here in London with khaki colored cargo pants, bangles, statement necklace and shoes that would make Carrie Bradshaw weep, she looks perfectly put together. I wear cargo pants at least once a week so I may be biased  but Cargos should be a staple in your summer closet, long or cropped. Kelly pulled this look off well by paring a masculine pant with a feminine and sexy shoe. Adooooores it!

What Lies Beneath?

What Lies Beneath?

Unmentionables, undergarments, underpants, briefs or bloomers, whatever you may call them wearing proper underwear is more important than the outfit itself. Your bra and panties is the first thing you put on so these items should have a proper fit, setting the tone for that days ensemble. Ill fitting underwear is the most hurtful thing you can do to a beautiful dress and a disturbing panty line can cause the most expensive pair of pants to look cheap. Before you can put on your favorite pair of skinny jeans or the Marc Jacob dress you saved up for, you must decide if a thong or boy shorts will be more appropriate. Something short and sweet calls for nude underwear for the split second you uncross your legs and want to prevent the world from seeing anything stripped and unsuitable. Wearing very tight jeans without pockets will look best with a thong, making the pants have a seamless appearance.

An exceptional outfit should be approached in the same way that you approach a recipe in a cookbook, follow the directions and you cannot go wrong. A racer back tank calls for just that, a racer back bra. Unless you are trying to achieve a “Carrie Bradshaw” lingerie moment only the women who sold it to you and the person you decided to bring home that night should know what style and color your undergarments are. Think of your underwear in the same fashion you would with what you are wearing for the day. Is it appropriate? Does it fit well? Does it compliment your wardrobe? If you can answer yes to all the above questions then what lies beneath will be just as stylish as what is above.
