THAT ONE TIME I WAS A STYLIST

THAT ONE TIME I WAS A STYLIST 22‚ÄúFashion is mute. ¬†Style gives it voice.‚ÄĚ _ June Ambrose

.

.

 

I served as the stylist for Vivian Sinya; the video director for the¬†music artist Isaiah Jones. ¬†It was the amazing. ¬†The video was for a great¬†song called “Statue“. ¬†Statue is a song about a woman so perfect she’s like a work¬†of art. ¬†The guy in the song is in love with her however he can’t have her because she a Master piece. ¬†She’s only to be looked at and not touched.

The call time for 9A.M. and I was there with bells on.  As the models filed in I made sure to greet them.  I let them know I was there to help them.  All the models were beautiful.  The video focused around curvy women.  Each model offered a different look at the curvy body.  I often caught myself looking at them and thinking you all are simply gorgeous.
Doing a video is hard work. ¬†At one point I stepped in as a frame girl. ¬†Good thing I did my makeup,lol. ¬† I had on my weekend uniform which consist of a customized tee, a pair of jean (often times¬†Rachel Roy Girlfriend Jeans) and matching hat. ¬† I call it comfy chic. ¬†The experience I had was wonderful. ¬†I’m honored that the director and artist trusted me with their vision. ¬†I can’t wait to see that vision completed.

The video is currently in post production when it’s finished I’ll update this post with links to it. ¬†Until then you can check out¬†Isaiah’s¬†soundcloud here.

M¬∑A¬∑C’s Justine Skye Iridescent Pressed Powder | Reviewed

JSkye“Never frown because you never know who might be falling in love with your smile.”_¬†Justine Skye

 

M·A·C has teamed up with a visionary group of women shaping music’s future in a series of limited-edition collaborations.  M·A·C teamed up with Brooklyn native and violet-haired R&B singer Justine Skye woos online audiences with her velvety voice and unstoppable presence. Her easy glamour and confident eclecticism come together in a bright purple-pink Iridescent Powder for those ready for as much colour and charisma as Skye herself.  Justine SkyeXMAC iridescent pressed powder is now available.

Lately I’ve been obsessed with everything¬†iridescent. ¬†So when I saw the new Justine Skye by M.A.C. iridescent pressed powder I know I had to try it. ¬†Pressed powers can be used in many ways. ¬†I’m choosing to use this press power as a highlight. ¬†The color is called Justine Skye¬†offers¬†a hint of soft purple along with shimmering pink pearl sheen. ¬†This fun shade is long-wearing with buildable coverage and shimmery finish. ¬†It comes¬†in special packaging that features a purple glitter design with holographic silver accents and Justine Skye’s logo.

 

 

 

I love it. ¬†It ready pops without having to use a ton of the product. ¬†I used a slight hand and it showing up well on my brown skin. ¬†I can see myself putting this press power on wet to get an extra glow. ¬†This is a limited edition item from M.A.C. so I’m going to run out and get another one so I can have a backup. ¬†I like it that much! You can get your own here.

 





As for the Starbucks’ unicorn drink. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm don’t waste your money. ¬†It taste like food coloring and whip cream. ¬†This is the first special Starbucks drink I purchase and didn’t like. ¬†Unicorn are everything good and sweet and this drink simply wasn’t. ¬†Sorry to report such bad news. ¬†However I hope this save you money and taste buds, lol.

 

 

Beauties will you be getting Justine Skye iridescent pressed powder?  Will you trying the unicorn drink from Starbucks?

 

Product purchased and all opinions are my own.

HOW TO DRESS FOR BRUNCH

Brunch OUTFIT
‚ÄúBrunch is not a meal. Brunch is a competition. And I‚Äôm winning. ‚ÄĚ _Matt Bellasai

.

.

 

Brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch eaten usually during the late morning to early afternoon, generally served from 11 am up to 3pm.  The word is a portmanteau of breakfast and lunch Brunch originated in England in the late 19th century and became popular in the United States in the 1930s.

For me it’s a reason to dress up, ¬†eat well and slip champagne with my girls. ¬†Dressing well while having the goal of eating and drinking can be a little hard when it’s not a dinner event. ¬†Daytime fashion can have you thinking am¬†I overdressed? ¬† Am I underdressed?
Well here’s my example of dressed up causal. ¬† The top is trending while the distress look. ¬†The skirt is encircled with knife pleats, an effortless midi skirt fashioned from blush-colored lam√© gleams with molten shine and is available up to size 3x or 24w. ¬†In this¬†Rachel Roy Pleat Lam√© Skirt¬†I’m wearing a size 2X. ¬† I could have gotten a 1X. ¬†It’s not to big because of the hidden zipping detailing. ¬†I added a patent leather belt, neutral metallic¬†shoe and a fun bag. ¬†I’m ready for the required snapchat photoshoot or shopping after brunch.
.

What’s your favorite place to have brunch? ¬†Do you dress up? ¬†Do you dress down?

#PlusInPastel | Curvy girls wear that too!

plus size in pastel 2
‚ÄúI can have more than one kind of dress? What?‚ÄĚ _Smurfette

Plus in pastel 2

 

Pastel colors are usually described as “soothing”, “soft”, “near neutral”, “milky”, “washed out”, “desaturated”, and lacking strong chromatic content. ¬†Pink, mauve, and baby blue are typical pastel colors. ¬†Often times plus size women feel that they can’t wear pastels and choose to stick to black. ¬†Here are 5 quick tips to wearing pastel for the plus size girl ready to step out their box.

I worn this pastel dress with silver.  Silver or gray goes great with the muted colors.

Pastel works well with bright colors.   This would great time to add playful accessories.

Use pastel as your pop of color by pairing pastel with neutral colors.  Try wearing pastel jeans with a nude top and shoe.

Wearing two or three pastel colors together is a great look.

You can also wear one pastel color in different shades. ¬†That’s a great way to rock the Spring style.
