What I Wore: Pizza and a Pool #OOTD 

Glamazons, I posted earlier about full-time blogging and some of the benefits. One of the best gifts to come from working for myself, and from home, is the ability to spend time with my family and travel. I enjoyed both a couple weeks ago when my aunt, cousins, niece and nephew got away for a […]

4 Ways To Make Culottes Flattering (And Even Sexy!) 

Glamazons, I’m in serious denial that it’s already August. Why? Because that means summer will be ending in just a few short weeks and I’ll have to put away my mini skirts and short shorts for pieces that are more fall-appropriate. The silver lining is that some of my favorite summer staples can be worn […]

Trend Alert: The Most Comfortable Heels We’ve Ever Worn (Seriously.) 

Glamazons, I am a self-proclaimed shoe addict. So much so that when I was younger, my motto was “The higher the heel, the better.” I can remember pounding the gravel on my college campus, sashaying from class to class wearing footwear that was always more stylish than practical.

What I Wore: Summer Brights #OOTD 

Glamazons, Things have been really dark lately. We’re burying unarmed youth who were killed by police, we’re having to face the ugly truth of rape culture as more of Cosby’s accusers come forward, and cancer is taking people from us before their time.

Celebs, Makeovers and More at the Samsung Galaxy Experience at #EssenceFest 

Glamazons, Believe it or not during my super insane schedule at Essence Festival, I somehow found the time to stop by the Samsung Galaxy Experience at the Convention Center.

Empire Fashion Recap: Cookie’s Gucci Fall 2013 Dress and Moschino Fall 2015 Jacket 

Glamazons, Finally – Cookie is back! Well, not completely. We just got a sneak peek of the Lyons family matriarch in the trailer for Empire‘s much-anticipated second season. I don’t know if it’s the upcoming guest appearances (Kelly Rowland! Ludacris! Tyrese!) or the fact that I met Bryshere Gray (Hakeem) on the street at Essence […]
