Yesterday my best friend of 27 years (yes, we go waaaaay back) texted these pics of her with the Time Out Mag I sent her in the mail. She seems more excited that I did! I think it’s cuz she thinks that once I hit it big time, she will quit her job and become my assistant. But I’ve already fired her. Ha!
And one more pic from the mag. In my haste to turn to page 23, I didn’t even know I was on the Table of Contents page until 3 days later. I’m a mess!
P.S.- I just checked the rest of the mag to make sure I didn’t miss anthing else!
This weekend I received a printed copy of my Time Out NY Magazine feature in the mail. I was so surprised that I got the whole page to myself!!! Usually they create a collage of all the people they feature and make it a 2 page spread. But they only featured me, which was odd but wow! I’m loving it! Forever excited and grateful.
Now I have to run and buy like 5 copies and send them to my family and frame this one!
woke up this morning to some lovely pics in my email. my boy matthew anderson used some of our garments this past summer to style to wonderful photo shoot for applause africa. :)
guess you would have to pick this up in print because this photo shoot is not on applause africa’s site yet.
dookie bracelets made the front cover! nice!
the every leggings jumper (love how matthew styled the top as a head wrap. werk!)
and it’s nice to give credit where credits do:
photography: ryle watson
make-up: natasha denis
styling: matthew anderson
model: titalayo mutushi
kerry washington doesn’t make too much noise in hollywood. (which, honestly, can be a good thing.) but i would definitely put her on my top best dressed celebs list. 98% she is always on point. the silent killer. lol love her.
though my halloween night was kind a bust (long story), i am happy with the way my costume turned out.
i was a circus ring master. and of course i made my costume. (my new obession- leotards. u may see them pop up in naKIMuli soon. lol)
i was featured in essence mag’s street style gallery. you can see my pic + other dope costumes here:
here i am with my girls in my showroom. rasheda, the devil, and tammi, the navy captain (i made her outfit too.)
we took like a million of these pics. lol
happy (late) halloween. :)
alyssa was featured in vogue italia today as “the look of the day” wearing our now sold out true essence skirt with petticoat.
you can see it here:
just when i think i am over twitter (social network anxiety kicking in), something dope happens to remind me why i am still on there. ghubar mag’s translator, tiffaniie, tweeted that we are in their newest issue that came out today! yeah! this is kinda a big deal people. :)
never heard of ghubar mag? well u must be living under a rock! (joking kiddos.) but they are a dope fashion web mag based in france. me + kelly are always drooling over their online issues so for them to acknowledge us with a 2 page spread is amazing!!! i am so grateful!
make sure to check out their newest issue today!
the cute + cool online mag that is n.e.e.t. magazine just published the interview i did with them. it is a cool interview about my style + about the blog. and they posted maaad pics, which was very unexpected but oh so wonderful! so check it out here:
