Well since it’s Throwback Thursday! 😍💃 Claire Huxtable was my first TV Style Icon and oooooohhhh how I absolutely love everything about her !!!! I was wearing high waist pants at 12yrs old because of her…..and Whitley Gilbert!!! Lol…and special thanks to my aunt that would give me all of her Ann Taylor, Liz Claiborne and New York and Co. Hand me downs. I wanted to be a lawyer when I “grew up”…all because of Claire Huxtable!
In lieu of “Shoesday Tuesday”, I decided to check on one of my fav shoe designers, Brian Atwood. I am completely floored! His Fall/Winter 2014 Lookbook is presented on the homepage, and it was love at first site!!! The “Lindy” boot is absolutely impeccable. I couldn’t help but to post all of this “amazingness!” BTW, I LOOOOOOVVVEEEE the entire Editorial Concept! See for yourself….
I can’t deal with Elise Neal wearing this FAKE balmain dress! Elise made an appearance on the new hit show, “The Real” with her costars to promote their new show, “Hollywood Divas”. I don’t have a problem with “knock-offs”. Everything is a knock-off of something, but come on my girl. This is clearly a mess!! Not to mention the beading isn’t even as intricate as Balmain!! Who is her stylist!!?? If she even has one!! They should be slapped!! Then to add insult to injury, it’s on national tv! Smh Charlemagne should give her donkey of the day!!!!! See Kim K in the “REAL” Balmain dress from the Fall 2012 Collection below
Angela Simmons covered Rolling Out Magazine recently! I love her look now!….it’s a Huge change from the tomboyish days when we were first introduced to her on “Runs House”. No shade, but “the face of fashion”???? #iCant
Sooooo many awesome collections!….I couldn’t choose just 1 to feature….
Spring 2014 Collection
“Overboard and into the deep blue sea, the whirlpool of Charlotte Olympia’s Spring/Summer ‘14 collection pulls you towards the shores of a desert island far far away where mermaids and nautical inspired designs swirl amongst crustaceans, blooms of jellyfish, glimmering starfish and other natural wonders.”
Reminiscent of Ariel the “Little Mermaid” to me…..the pump with the letter in the glass bottle as a heel and the shipwreck wedges with the mermaid on the back of the ship and ocean waves at the bottom of the shoe did it for me!! Love at first sight! And the pumps with the imitation seaweed and the wedges with the little red crabs are amazing also! BTW…the postcard, treasure chest, pineapple and fish are all clutches to match! 😍
The “Cruise 14″ Collection Continued
Inspired by the Comic Book “Archie”
I loved watching “Archie” every Saturday, so it’s absolutely no question that I’m in LOVE with this collection! Comic Book wedges and Betty and Veronica pumps with clutches to match!…Perfect! BTW…the jukebox, telephone, and record player are all clutches also! 😍😍😍

While many can argue that Ms. Franklin has had a few questionable fashion choices……well a LOT, she still keep the heads turning whenever she enters a room and that’s the way it SHOULD BE! She remains in her own lane, well, sometimes, but even with that, she has made a lasting impression on us all. I LOVE her confidence! Who came up with Fashion Rules anyway? There should be NONE RIGHT!? but whoever it was, this Diva has manage to break them ALL and set her own standards!
Jasmine Guy as Whitley Gilbert…One of my Fav TV Characters…NEVER disappointed me!….in the Fashion Category at least!!! So it only makes since that I would choose her today for “Throwback Thursday”….. Ever since I could remember I’ve ALWAYS tried to emulate her style! I’m in LOVE with this look! The Houndstooth skirt and the turtleneck tied together with the chain belt is EVERYTHING! ❤️
