I love fashion label Kaelen. I went to one of the brand’s first major shows during New York Fashion Week a few seasons ago. The line is young, yet sophisticated. It is also very fresh and hip. These are the kinds of clothes I want to design for plus size women. I want to make clothes that look modern like these garments in the picture above. Kaelen is such an inspiration to me.

Malaika Firth was photographed by Steven Meisel for Prada’s new Fall/Winter 2013 ad campaign. Malaika Firth is the first black model to front an ad campaign for the Italian fashion house since Naomi Campbell was the face 19 years ago in 1994! Wow! This is a big honor. Prada usually only has one black model in each fashion show if that, so this is really big. Photo from Models of Color.
It is finally layering season. For me, living life in the south, I am experiencing mild fall weather. Hurricane Sandy has also brought about some cold winds. Now is the time for me to bring out my sweaters. Finally! I love dressing for fall weather. Check out last year’s tips on how to layer and check out these photos from FYStreetStyle. I’m so excited. I have been planning outfits already. SMH!
Ummm… Beyonce definitely gets this week’s Bad Bish honors for all the style and flare she possessed at last week’s Revel concerts. This is a complete comeback after losing 60 pounds and getting the guts to sing and dance again just four months after giving birth to Blue Ivy or Fair Oaks as my daddy calls her. Photo from The Cut.
P.S. This is the last day to enter the Leading Lady Bra contest.
