Loving these printed leather and vinyl pumps by Sophia Webster!! The mixing of prints in fashion today is really addicting and inspiring! I love how Sophia Webster has mixed polka dots and classic tortoiseshell. You could wear these pumps with pretty much anything and they would kick your style up a notch in a really playful way.

How would you style yours?

Taking Points: Is Fashion Racist?

Hosted by: Marc Lamont Hill | Guests: Beverly Johnson; Supermodel | Brandice Henderson-Daniel; Founder & CEO of Harlem’s Fashion Row | Julee Wilson HuffPost Black Voices Style & Beauty Editor | Michaela Angela Davis; Editorial Brand Manager @ BET/Image Activist | Shiona Turini; Fashion Market Director; Cosmopolitain Magazine

This in depth interview takes a look at the intricate relationship between fashion, race and culture. There are many points brought to the forefront of this conversation that need to be discussed throughly amongst ALL people in the fashion industry.  More often than not, these issues are pushed aside, which allows things to continue on in the way that they have for years. The video is 30 minutes long, but anyone who loves fashion, wears fashion, purchases fashion (which is basically every one of us) needs to at least be aware, and alert to these issues. I have witnessed many of them myself during my 15 years in the industry, and this is the first time I have heard them all put on the table in a way that searches for solutions as well as a way to educate people on what is really going on.

Girls, let’s keep the dialogue open. Let me know what you think of the video!

Happy Friday!

The biker jacket is being re-interpreted in so many ways. These days there are tons of options to choose from! Decide if you want to go classic with your style or choose something a little more unexpected. Most importantly, make sure you love it!

Next week I will share part II in our ➌ KEY PIECES series, in which I will focus on how to choose a great tote.

Happy Shopping!

Last Thursday I attended the Blogger Babes private screening of 5 new clothing lines at the Cooper building. My favorite of the 5 lines was Yoze, by David Odia. Yoze is a beautiful contemporary line, launching with 5 initial styles using muted digital prints and color blocking. I love the idea of prints on winter white. Keep your eyes out for Yoze. The line will be debuting to the public this month.

Happy Monday friends!
