How-To: Happy Halloween!


    Like every glamazon on the planet, I was obsessed with Miss B's make-up in the Kitty Kat video. Call it fierce ambition, but my girls and I were determined to re-create the look for my Halloween costume, Cat Woman.  The process ended up being simpler and shorter than we ever anticipated! Even the most uninitiated beauty girl (like myself) can achieve this look by mastering three easy steps, so graciously outlined by my cousin, Tish and executed by none other than Beautylicious.

    1 -  Apply gold pigment powder (on top of a matching cream shadow) to the crease of the eye, the eyelid and below the eyebrow as your base color. L'Oreal has an amazing pigment powder that looks beautiful against any complexion!

    2 -  Use fluid black liner, like Revlon's Colorstay Liquid Liner, to draw small C's (some forward, some backward) and D's a similar length apart. *TIP: Remember it doesn't have to be perfect! The look is funky and fierce, not polished. A little variety in size and shape goes a long way.

    3 -  Shade within the C's and D's with mahogany brown shadow. 

    Voila! Instant glamourization.  

    The finished product:


    Love it!

    Have a safe and happy Halloween!



Kelly Kapoor I Love You

    Most people know that Mindy Kaling is pretty much my ultimate girl crush of all time. I still check Things I've Bought That I Love once in a while even though I have an RSS reader and I know she hasn't updated since April. Last nights episode of The Office brought my obsession to a new level.

    Kelly Kapoor as Carrie Bradshaw. I DIE. These are the best images I could find. I love the idea of an ethnic girl unapologetically rocking the SJP costume.

Fashion Scoop: African Vogue and Diddy buys Enyce

    Hope you all had a GLAM weekend! I floated from every bar (Hookah!) to industry event (Mont Blanc! Commes Des Garcons for H&M!) in the city and here are the scoops I got along the way...

    African Vogue?


    The geniuses behind this year's wildly popular "all-black" Vogue Italia are planning to launch an issue dedicated to Africa for L'Uomo Vogue. I, for one, am ecstatic! There has always been a hungry audience for beautiful black models and designers, and it's about time the industry caught up. The best part? They're donating half of ad profits to African charities. 

    Franca Sozzani who created July's "all-black" issue of Vogue Italia, which addressed the lack of black models in fashion has another groundbreaking idea for the November issue of L'Uomo Vogue, of which she is also the editor: The magazine will be dedicated to Africa , and half of the advertising revenue will be donated to Africa-related charities, reports Robin Givhan for the Washington Post.



    Next, Diddy, who owns Sean John and Zac Posen just bought the struggling fashion brand, Enyce from Liz Claiborne for $20 million according to the New York Herald. 

    “Enyce is a brand that I have always admired, and they have been a very important player in the young men’s sportswear arena for over a decade. I am really excited to bring it into our portfolio of brands that already includes Sean John and Zac Posen. Given our track record of success in marketing products such as Ciroc Vodka, Unforgivable by Sean John, and all of our television titles, I look forward to adding our expertise to an already hot fashion line. Our long-term plan is to grow the Enyce brand through innovative marketing, expansion of the menswear and boy’s lines, and launching into new licensing categories. The current economic climate may be challenging, but we believe it is also an opportunity, and we are really excited to add Enyce to our lineup.” - the world according to Sean

    Umm...the last time I took the bus to Broad and Market Street (in Newark, NJ) and shelled out two weeks worth of Aldo store paychecks for a tacky bright orange Enyce top and skirt with the logo so un-fashionably sewn across the front was 2001. I've since graduated from high school and college and moved out of my parent's house...



    Yet I have faith that Diddy will do something exciting with the brand, I just pray he doesn't publicity-whore out all 6 of his children (or himself) in the ads. 



    Glamazons, are you even excited to see this come back?! Which leads me to my next question, if you could resurrect any defunct fashion brand, which one would you choose? I personally think Eve's Fetish could have been so much more, but Mecca (remember that?!) should stay dead and buried.

SPOILER ALERT: Halloween Costume

    The current plan is Parker Posey in Party Girl as dressed during the Dewey Decimal getting shit done sequence. Not quite sure you remember the outfit? Well I've got screengrabs.
    Gabbing with Leo about his gig at Rene's Getting chewed out (note the paperclip necklace) "A trained monkey learned this system on PBS in a matter of hours." Sad Mad drunk
    Getting shit done... dancing on the table all done.
    UPDATE: Check out my costume here.

Can Someone Tell Me.....

    why these Real Housewives of Atlanta ladies can't afford good weave?! I mean, one would think that with all the money and connections they claim to have that their weaves would not be looking a hot mess, right?!
    During a rare moment of downtime, I finally had the chance to watch the Bravo show...the episode about the birthday party that Nene (pictured below) did not get in. How tragic. What do you think?


    Kim Zolciak....the wanna be country singer/single mom who lives off of her sugar daddy that she so fondly calls 'Big Poppa.'
    Can you tell where her real hair ends and the weave begins?

    Nene Leakes...that's a wig, right? Either way it's still a sizzling, burning, electrifying mess.

Cubical Funtimes

    I can't even begin to explain the about of ridiculousness that happens in my cubicle during any given week. Sometimes I worry that if that I will die in an avalanche of stuff. (Did you see Help! I'm a Horder on TLC?) At least I don't have to worry about earthquakes in NYC.
    Here is an attempt to document some of the objets that I am blessed to coexist peacefully with. I wonder if I will ever grow to hate stuff. I think my relationship with stuff is still going pretty strong. I mean I love stuff, cute stuff in particular, creepy stuff, weird stuff, but I don't know sometimes it can be too much.
