How To Make Basics Not So Basic

I overheard someone say.. 

"The Girl in the White T-shirt and Jeans"
although I thought i'd be invisible in such a simple silhouette I realized that you could even use the basics to stand out.

In the look demonstrated below we have a white off the shoulder basic white top and denim jeans.
What makes it pop a little extra is the three part dressing method.

Get your pop from your accessories whether it be shoes, earrings or a necklace.

Its important to pair the basics with an unexpected showy item that will demand the attention & you can put with almost anything. Like a conversation piece almost.

I chose the striped shoes because the heel is slightly dramatic and the ankle cuff elevates the look a little as if its an accessory.

My Experience With the Charlotte Unconventional Film School

I had a fabulous time reading for the Charlotte Unconventional Film School.
I had an awesome experience learning with all of the student directors. The Location was 301 E W.T. Harris Blvd · Charlotte, NC. If you ever get the opportunity to work with Julie McElmurry I definitely recommend it, I learned so much about film in the allotted time.

KEY DATES
Shooting Starts: Saturday, October 26th at 2:00 pm
Shooting Ends: Saturday, October 26th at 4:45 pm

Synopsis:
This was a very short scene we shot as part of a class. The class was learning, among other things, how to direct actors. We will had four groups setting up the scene and four different student directors.
This was a conversation between two people about a third person who is not in the scene. This will be shot a variety of ways that day as the purpose of the day is to give people hands-on experience on a film set. All students were 18+


I had the pleasure of reading the part of Amanda, and Melissa read the part of Kacy.

Cardi B Kills in Press Music Video

Once again Cardi B kills it in more ways than one. In the music video for her greatly anticipated single press she came through with killer visuals per usual.


Cardi cocked one back in the opening of the video and clearly got her point across. 
The lighting pairs well with the smoking cigarette and stark white nails. 
Give her creative team their flowers. 


The pandemonium the crowd shows further pushes the narrative that Cardi is the most controversial character in hip hop at the moment and she embraces that with open arms.


This white moment with the veil is giving us the avant garde realness we have to come to expect from Cardi B.


In this day and age we wonder if we will ever see something new, and then boom... here comes Cardi B with  naked choreography.



We got a clear message from the courtroom scene when Cardi shows she represents and chooses to represent all women.


Cardi looked like a cast member in orange is the new black and i'm totally here for it.


I loved the Press video, I love the visuals and Cardi killed. What are your thoughts?

Would You Do Anything For Clout? Offset Featuring Cardi B Clout Video Breakdown


The long awaited video for Clout from Migos Member Offset featuring his wife Cardi B dropped today... and it did not disappoint.  It gave the perfect blend of simplicity and excitement.


Let's start with the color scheme. The bright yellow and black placed throughout the video tied everything together. Each scene married with the other effortlessly.


The outfits Cardi wore are a nod to Madonna, Janet Jackson, and even Lil Kim with that unique splash of Cardi that we look for to add some spice, she did just that with the heels and chains. 



At this point what will Cardi and Offset be able to do to shock us?


Cardi looked flawless on the piano in Money, so Offset was like anything you can do I can do better....


The masked moments really popped. The hair and the Jesus Piece really worked well in this scene.


The lone model in the video was flawless. Period.


I'm here for Offset's style regardless of what he wears... who thought loose leather could rock like this? Impeccable.


Offset let it be known he would not be left out of the patent leather party. Yep I'm here for the perfectly placed patent leather. Jacket, Shoes and Belt are the only appropriate places to put patent leather. 


This video really popped.... Check out the rest of the visuals below:

Kim Kardashian VS. Fashion Nova ... Is Imitation the sincerest form of flattery?







Kim Kardashian is pissed after a replica of a one-of-a-kind vintage dress she wore this weekend suddenly was up for sale on another site, and the model who wore the dress accidentally supported Kim’s take.
Kim rocked a black cutout dress on Sunday night from infamous designer Thierry Mugler’s vintage collection to the 5th Annual Hollywood Beauty Awards. After seeing the dress for sale online, Kimmie Cakes took to the internet and went on a rant, calling out the perps and denying any relationship with them.
“It’s devastating to see these fashion companies rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas,” she began. “I’ve watched these companies profit off my husband’s work for years and now that it’s also affecting designers who have been so generous to give me access to their beautiful works, I can no longer sit silent.”
She stated, “Only two days ago, I was privileged enough to wear a one-of-a-kind vintage Mugler dress and in less than 24 hours it was knocked off and thrown up on a site – but it’s not for sale. You have to sign up for a waitlist because the dress hasn’t even been made to sell yet.”
Kim Kardashian is obviously talking about Fashion Nova, where the dress is listed as being “sold out” in all sizes.
She claims the websites that do this “make people believe there is some kind of relationship between me and this fashion site. There is not.”
Kim continued, “My relationships with designers are very important to me. It’s taken me over a decade to build them and I have a huge amount of respect for the amount of work that they put into bringing their ideas to life.”
She says she plans her looks for weeks and even months or a year in advance, saying she is “grateful for every fashion moment those designers and their dresses have helped me create.”
Kim Kardashian concluded by saying, “So, as always, don’t believe everything you read and see online. I don’t have any relationships with these sites. I’m not leaking my looks to anyone, and I don’t support what these companies are doing.”
The model  Yodit Yemane ( @The_jodiejoewho ) wore the dress for Fashion Nova posted a video to her Instagram Story last night, showing various snaps from the photo shoot. It’s worth noting … the file name says “Kim dress.”

The Kardashians seemed to have some sort of business relationship with Fashion Nova. Last year, the clothing site had a few outfits worn by the sisters to Kylie Jenner’s birthday party … on the same day as the party. So who gave them the Tea?

Do you agree with Kimmie or is imitation the sincerest form of flattery?
