Bringing the 80s Back: Eyewear Edition....

By Kendrick Scott ..

For some reason it seems like everybody and their mama are trying to bring back the 80s with the high top fades, skinny jeans, colorful outfits and throwback sneakers. I personally am a big fan of the 80s inspired vintage eyewear. Vintage eyewear has set the platform for today designs are being imitated by some of your favorite designers. Whether they are reading glasses, aviators, wayfarer, 80s inspired and the list goes. I personally love the Cazal 607’s with the clear lenses. Run from DMC really put them on the map in the 80s and they have made their way back on the fashion scene.

Here are some of the Hottest styles by Ray Ban, Cazal, Carrera & Boeing, Ferrari, Zeiss, and Persol.

We all know that everything isn’t for everybody. Just because you see Jay-Z wear a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarer doesn’t mean they will have the same look on you. Have fun shopping for the right pair that fits “You”.

A Beautiful Discovery……And Her Name is Micabella!

By: Anita F. Hill..

Oh my gosh!!!!....As a lover of all things beautiful, I have discovered something truly AMAZING. The other day, I’m minding my own business, walking through the Lenox Mall, and I hear this guy trying to urgently get my attention. So I turn around, and he asks me, “What type of eye shadow are you wearing?”……And that’s when I was introduced to Micabella Cosmetics.

For those of you who haven’t heard of Micabella …… get ready to be enlightened!.... For those of you have heard of Micabella, SHAME on you for not telling me.

So…..this guy, the one that got my attention, he shows me this absolutely beautiful , beautiful, shimmery brown eye shadow, called Nature. Then within seconds, (This is the amazing part!) he showed me how I could use that same eye shadow as: mascara, blush, lipstick, body shimmer, and even nail polish. I was truly amazed, and all of the colors were so gorgeous. But, what’s even better about Micabella is that it is 100% mica and minerals, hypoallergenic, fragrance free, and lasts for about 18 hours, and most of all, its’ AFFORDABLE!!! . OMG! For someone like me, who is really into natural beauty , who only uses just a touch of make-up to enhance what I already have, and NOT to completely make me over, Micabella is the perfect product.

So, after I made my purchase of the shimmery brown eye shadow, called Nature, I went home to do immediate research. I found out that Micabella was actually founded in 2001, and was sold in malls in both Europe and North America. I also found that they actually have a full line of cosmetics that includes great anti-aging skincare products. The other products are a bit more expensive, but the eye shadow is very affordable. It is also better to purchase it in person at the mall, rather than on the website, because the salespeople work out great deals.

Well, I’m headed to Lenox Mall right now , as we read , to pick up at least 3 more colors of this amazing eye shadow………Until next time, stay beautiful!!!!

My Clothes Encounter... Secondhand Chic

By: Contributing Writer
Keren Charles

This weekend I finally had a chance to attend Kaira Akita’s A Clothes Encounter. We know her talent on screen in Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married & The Family That Preys, but A Clothes Encounter is her best performance yet. She has developed a luxury consignment concept that truly re-defines buying new-to-you fashion.

The selection of fashionable items including shoes, accessories and clothing, was just the right mix: from trendy to classic. So there was something there to suit everyone’s style.

Professional wardrobe stylist, Erica Dias, is also available for VIP shoppers to get assistance and advice as they shop for items that will complement their style & budget.

Not to mention the complimentary food, drinks, and great networking….this is one event that a budget fashionista should not miss. It is truly an upscale, chic and guilt-free shopping experience at its best.

One satisfied shopper, Jane Washington said it was her second time attending A Clothes Encounter. “I brought 10 friends with me this time,” she said. “It is a fabulous event with great networking and quality clothing”

I was also excited to see my sorority sister Amy, one of the VIP Bag Sponsors, promoting her new clothing line Good&Brown- Expressivewear for the hued wonders of the world. Check out her online store at

Amy GoodBrown






The next A Clothes Encounter is scheduled for Sunday, Dec 13 at Like The River Salon, 240 Highland Ave. 4pm-7pm

The Recreation of The Live Mechanics...

By Contributing Writer Ken Scott

I know many of you guys can wait for the winter weather to come along so that you can go shopping for that winter gear. Winter is my favorite season for fashion. We get to wear those scarf and beanie sets, Timberland boots, pea coats, flannels, bomber jackets and the list goes on. As you go on your journey to find the right winter fix, you must definitely have to look out for the Live Mechanics winter collection.

Created by Osa Odiase in 2000, the brand started of by printing t-shirts and sweatshirts to pretty much build a strong following in its home based state California. As time moved forward so along did the brand. These guys have done a remarkable job of reinventing their brand from mainly creating graphic tees into a full scale clothing line.

Take a look at this amazing 2009 Fall/Winter Collection.

It's a Tight Situation.......

By Kesha Denise of Funky Flair Boutique

Babes and Dolls, I know you all absolutely love the legging as it’s very comfortable and quite edgy, but there is an alternative trend – TIGHTS!

For the Fall/Winter Season, opaque tights are feminine, stylish, and chic and are a must have for your wardrobe as they can enhance legs (like the America’s Top Model you are!) and give you a sexy yet classic look.

Tights are fabulous and versatile as they can be worn with tons of different looks! Here’s a few tips to rip your runway at work, happy hour with the girls, date with the beau, etc:

  • Try them with a sweater dress or a (denim) mini skirt. Talk about hotness!! Try it with black opaque tights with cute ankle boots
  • Colors & Shoes. Remember that if you rock brightly colored opaque tights, keep the rest of your outfit simple, by wearing your tights with flats or heels in the same color,your legs look a mile long!
  • Remember: Opaque, not semi opaque! There IS a difference. Opaque is hot this season, while semi-opaque tights just look dated and are also much less slimming for your legs.

Ok Divas, walk to your closet and pull out that dress you haven’t worn in awhile and “jazz it up” with your tights. I guarantee it will look like a different outfit. If you still don’t understand, peep out these pictures of celebrity Solange Knowles; her fashion sense is BANANAS! I heart her.
