Blogger Meet & Greet with Leah V.

Lakeside Mall: Lord & Taylor

Sterling Heights, MI

DSC02167

(I’m searching for the perfect fall ensemble for my model for the event.)

I was contacted by Nicole, store manager of Lord & Taylor, to talk about their new and improved Plus-Size section including brands from Jessica Simpson, Calvin Klein, and Michel Kors, just to name a few.

(My beautiful model, Amanda Sweet, in her 1st outfit.)

This was Lord & Taylor’s first blogger meet and greet in-store. I decided to get two models and style them live. I also was able to style myself from head to toe in L&T’s plus section.

The Fillmore

Hour Detroit’s Best Dressed

Downtown Detroit

I heard about Hour Detroit’s Best Dressed for two years in a row and somehow never got a chance to attend. I called Somerset. I emailed and even called Hour Magazine. And no response. Maybe it wasn’t meant to be, I thought. Finally, a few days before the event, their PR firm contacted me with a press pass. I was ecstatic.

SAM_3904

I felt like an all black dress would’ve been too blah…I wanted to make a splash at the event. I decided what better color to wear: red!

Hawt like fire.

Explosive like lava.

Spicy like peppers.

I adore this photo. It says curvy fashionista conquers the world.

By the way: hat and sunnies from Forever 21, neck piece from Burlington, and belt was from Rainbow Clothing.

Close-up. Tried new foundation from Lancome. Lipstick by Kat Von D. No, Madinah didn’t beat my face. I had to do it all by my lonesome. My wing liner is getting a little better.

Oh, Hey at Lil Miss JB Style and Colour and Grace.

Bumped into these rowdy youngins’ outside the venue.

When bloggers get together, it gets a little crazy. We take random usies.

SAM_3748-0

We pretend to act cool. Haha.

SAM_3769-0

We even stick our tongues out.

SAM_3764-0

But deep down, we genuinely share a love for fashion and art. We strive to inspire through our creations.

SAM_3727
We come from different backgrounds.

SAM_3705

Somehow we just fit together.

SAM_3696

Creating new friendships.

SAM_4218

I am always the crazy one. Lol

Shout out to Bobcat Bonnie’s for housing us rowdy bloggers. Food was good and the service was on point.

Detroit Does NYFW Series

Eastern Market

Detroit, MI

Sept 16, 2015

Q: What was the inspiration/story behind your look?

Jordan: This look was actually inspired off of a few different NYFW shows for this fall/winter season and was spotted on Olivia Palermo shortly after. 

Q: How would you define your style?

Jordan: Honestly I can’t define my style, I’m a Jill of all trades, well…of all styles.  I think the crux of my style revolves around ease, comfort and wearing what makes me feel confident regardless of if I am dressing for work or the weekend.

Q: Who are your style icons?

Jordan: I honestly draw inspiration from so many people, but if I had to name a few they would be: Esther Quek, Olivia Lopez, Mary Seng, Christina Caradona and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. 

Q: Where do you like to shop?

Jordan: Everywhere! Lol no really, I don’t like to limit myself because you can miss out on some gems that way.  My favorite places to shop are definitely ASOS, H&M, and TJ Maxx.

Q: Have you ever been to NYFW, if so when and what was your fave part?

Jordan: Sadly I haven’t been yet, but I’m saving up for next year 😀

Q: Who is your fave designer?

Jordan: Gaaah, honestly I don’t hang on designers like most fashion people but I definitely enjoy Altuzzara. 

Q: Whose show are you most looking forward to this year?

Jordan: I really am interested to see Pyer Moss, especially since he’ll be showing a video addressing racism. 

Q: What do you like about NYFW more, the runway shows or the street style and why?

Jordan: Street style hands down!  Unless you’re a fashion maven or celebrity a lot of the ready to wear clothes just don’t seem functional to me, but the street style always gives me awesome ideas on how to re-wear what I already own.

Q: Links to any social media pages?

Novi, MI

1st Fashion Blogger Alliance Brunch

I ordered a sweet latte with fancy sugar stick.

Me, Lil Miss JB Style, and Mel

So we were just about ready to quit–well, I know I was. “The style blogging industry is dead in Detroit,” I whined. I’d had enough. I was invited to the Style Expo and was a style judge. This is where my stylish fate was sealed…I met Jordan. We took some selfies, and then she explained to me what she was trying to do. I was interested.

Eden, myself, Jordan, and Mel

We talked, and talked some more. Then we began brainstorming. We met some other cool bloggers along the way. We all complained how there wasn’t enough or this and wasn’t enough of that. We made up our minds that we needed backup and decided to put a call out for other creatives.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

A lot of cool style bloggers from the D!

We only expected it be us four…plus two or three others. To our surprise many bloggers were available and interested!

Eden photobombing. Ha!

Shout out to Toasted Oak Grill and Market in Novi for accommodating us rowdy girls.

So our goal is to create a support system and creative platform for Detroit style bloggers to connect to with each other as well as business.

Empowerment: Fashion Blogger Style

DSC08917(Photo: Worldiction)

Life is funny. The right people kind of just fall into your lap when you least expect it. I met these crazy fashion bloggers at different times, but it is like we’ve known each other for years.

DSC08859(Photo: Worldiction)

I’ve been blogging for about 2+ years now and didn’t even know there were other local bloggers like myself floating around the city. We’ve bounced around from fashion show to fashion show, colliding at the last step. And this happened.

DSC08925(Photo: Worldiction)

We decided to do a silver and black themed shoot, geared towards empowerment, strength, and entrepreneurship. Basically, everything we aspire to be and want to inspire others to partake in. Scott M., Worldiction, a local art photographer allowed our creative juices to flow without interruption.

Each of our personalities and styles are different, yet we all have a common goal of wanting to empower each other through our blogs and vlogs as well as our audiences by encouraging creativity and individuality, a strong sense of self.

Shall we do a wardrobe breakdown?

Turban/Scarf: Borrowed

Neck piece: I made it, booyah!

Lace Dress: F21 Plus

Snake Bracelet: Deb’s

Earrings and Ring: Joanne’s Fabric

Lace Hand Piece: Claire’s

Ballet Flats: Pay-Less

This year has been a whirlwind of successes and failures. But as I keep pushing and meeting new people who inspire me every moment, I find the failures shrinking. Life is about living through our experiences and finding out what we’re supposed to learn from them. I am thankful to have a set of empowering women–and men–who push me to be something more, something greater than myself.

It’s been a while since I was in the area of Downtown Detroit near the previous Tiger Stadium. It has been refurnished for the better, yet still has that ‘old’ Detroit feel to it.

The power of social media and how it can connect people from all over the world. Eden followed me a few months back; I had no idea who she was. I went to a fashion show, and she was there! She came up to me like, ‘Hi. I’m Eden from Instagram!” I’m like, “Heeeeeeey, girl.” The rest is a short history.

I love my new camera. It has taken everything I do to the next level. And I am learning how to edit.

Shades from SunniesMania!

I was going for an eccentric laid back look. I really love how you can play with fashion and switch your style up. I added a fuzzy turban and a pair of cat-eye shades from SunniesMania. My new fave shade store.

Thanks Eden for capturing these beautiful moments. I love, love, love them and I hope you do, too!

Here to brighten up your Sunday timeline with lewks and a story 🙋🏾‍♀️ On Friday, I was about ready to run away from it all. Emails. Folks messaging me with nonsense. Having to deal with book tour stuff. I was irritable and didn’t want people talking to or looking at me. I took a good ole depression nap and woke up with such a bad headache. “I’m leaving!” I told myself. I started looking up rental cars to go somewhere, anywhere. But no rentals were available. I slammed the laptop, wondering how the hell I was going to get away with no whip. The next day, I told myself that I wasn’t going to do any work or social media for 24 hours (we gonna start small. It’s hard 🤷🏽‍♀️). And that all of the work can wait. I asked me, “what would you like to do today?” I took an almost 2-hour train ride by myself to Coney Island and with my rolling luggage, I created editorial images in the amusement park, I ate chicken fingers and fried Oreos, I got my fat ass on not one but three scary rides (I’ll make a post later about how to navigate amusement parks as a fat person). One was a rollercoaster, bitch, that almost took my hijab straight off 😂 I took my shoes off and walked on the beach. I watched the sunset. I found a random party on the boardwalk, parked my luggage, and danced with strangers. I’m proud of myself because I get anxious going places I’ve never been alone. But I did it anyway. I had fun. I was spontaneous. I went on an adventure. And was my own company. Have you ever felt the need to just “run away”? What do you do when you are just overstimulated and overwhelmed? What solo adventures have you embarked on? Let’s chat. P.S. Can’t wait to show y’all these fire pics! #newyorkblogger #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #bgki #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #fashion #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #bodyconfidence #plusmodel #feminist #intersectionalfeminism #turbanista #bodydysmorphia #fatacceptance #selflove #goldenconfidence #wamfam #editorial #hijabi #beautyblogger #covergirl #monochromatic
