Q: Where do you like to shop?

 

Mel: Forever 21 and online. Most of the time I really have something in mind that I want and it isn’t always “modern” and I don’t want to be bound by that, so I search the world wide web!

 

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

 

Mel: I have not been, but they won’t be able to keep me out for long.

 

Q: Who is your fave designer?

 

Mel: There are so many to pick from really! I just like a designer who stays consistent. I consistently like what they produce.

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

I had a photo shoot planned that morning that I’d been working on for the last few weeks. Tamara of Ashley Stewart emailed, asking if I’d like to cover the event and be a special guest. I couldn’t refuse.

The fashion show was awesome and the energy was high.

Here are my top “Three” picks:

1. The tulle skirt. It can be paired with a cami, a denim button-up, or a blazer. Such a versatile piece.

2. A tribal print dress.

3. The Fringe bag. Basically anything with fringe on it is this fall’s trending detail.

It isn’t an event unless you have paparazzi.

As a special guest, I was able to join Ashley Stewart’s “Runway Competition”. I did win! Ha. But I had to take a pic with one of my fiercest competitors.

It’s not about having the perfect picture, it’s about having the perfect attitude.

It’s another celebration 🎉 I hope y’all aren’t tired of me sharing my wins. Sometimes I think like am I doing too much by sharing these things? Am I making other people feel bad? But, at the same time, I don’t only share my wins, my accomplishments. I share my heartbreaks and my failures, too. I’ve had a lot of them. I’m not on here trying to make you feel like you can’t. I’m on here to show you that you most certainly can. And I hope by sharing, you get the jolt to do what you thought or were told that you could never do. If you aren’t a hater then just roll with me on this wave, because who knows, maybe next month I won’t be hot shit anymore 🤷🏽‍♀️😂 It has been a month since my book baby has dropped in bookstores across the U.S. and y’all have shared your copies and attended events and told friends about it. Some of y’all even wrote some reviews—if you haven’t then get to it! Amazon, Goodreads, whateva. Pretty please. *Tongue pop* My friend sent me this article from @theoaklandpress and guess the fuck what?!? Ya girl is #3 on the Michigan Independent Bookseller Best Sellers List for the month of October 😭 I may not be number 1 or even number 2 on the list but I am number 3! A damn list! Like each and every one of y’all who has bought my book and promoted it have directly caused a chain link reaction. Every book counts. Every share. Review. Every time you tag me, like something on my page, or shout me out, directly goes into boosting this platform. This may be the only list I ever get on, maybe. I may not sell not one more book. Either way, I’m grateful and I’m honored. Do you feel the need to share every accomplishment? Or are you one to hide your wins from people? What’s the thin line between boasting? Let’s chat. 📸 @alexis.devaney #newyorkblogger #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #bgki #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #fashion #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #bodyconfidence #plusmodel #feminist #wiw #intersectionalfeminism #turbanista #bodydysmorphia #fatacceptance #selflove #unashamedleahv #streetstyle #queen #ootd #animalprint
