Macy's Celebrates Black History Month



I attended this year Macy's Black History Month celebration in San Francisco at the Union Square location. The Special Guests were Celebrity Fashion Stylist June Ambrose, Costume Designer Johnetta Boone and Renel hosted the show.  

As I stepped off the Macys elevator I was greet by this sign directing me to the right for BHM "The Soul Era" event. 

As I walk the direction towards the event I saw beautiful Black women and very few men in line to attend this awesome event. 
I checked in the VIP line and received a couple of VIP perks: VIP wristband, a red Macy's cosmetic bag, (inside the bag was a $10 gift card, and a "Choose your own Sale day" coupon. 
I had to hurry up and get a seat before the good ones were gone. The event was expected to a full house due to massive response. 


The show opened up with one the sponsors: Steven Sterling from "Esterlina Vineyard and Winery" in Healdsburg, CA. They cater the delicious riesling wine for the evening. 

Macy's store assistant welcomed the host for the night, Bay Area's most loved radio host Renel. It was a delight to have her as the host for the event. Renel grace the stage wearing a "Fringe" Dress which is make a coming back for this upcoming season.

Renel welcomed June Ambrose and Johnetta Boone to the stage. The two fabulous ladies gave us 70's fashion thru their outfits. June wore a men's inspired suit and Johnetta wore a tunic, and cropped flared bottom. And they both wore a pair of fabulous platforms. 

Johnetta Boone, Lalai and June Ambrose 
 
The conversation begin with discussing Black Fashion, Music and Beauty thru the Soul Era (60's and 70's). The audience were given notecard to ask the ladies questions. Here is my question:

Renel read my question and the ladies gracefully answered with a lot inspiration: 
Listen to the video on my Facebook page and hear June and Johnetta's response. 
I felt empowered and inspired by their encouraging words. 

The event didn't stop there, Macy's delighted us with little refreshments, wine and a fashion show. I meet some incredible people on this night!

Happy Easter

It's Resurrection Sunday! 

I hope you enjoy this beautiful day, today! 

Spring is here and I decide to wear this white eyelet A- line dress around town. 
Wearing white from head to toe is not the usual for me. But I could not resist adding my BJ cream/black love satchel and deciding if I should wear black heels or cream wedges. I decided to wear my never worn before cream wedges and added a hint of color on the neck with a water blue necklace. 


Also never leaving home without my glam shades. Those shades complete any outfit, an occasion and on any day of the week. 


Dress: Nordstrom 
Handbag: Betsey Johnson Love Quilted Satchel
Necklace: Forever 21
Bracelet: Aldo
Shoes: Agaci 
Glasses: Istyleherboutique

2014 Color of the Year



It’s time to roll out everything Radiant Orchid, 2014 color of the year.
We can now put away everything Emerald, because Radiant Orchid is ruling!  
 
The Pantone Color Institute has been designating a Color of the Year to express in color since 2000. Pantone Institute says they choose a “a color that will resonate around the world, the PANTONE Color of the Year is a reflection of what people are looking for, what they feel they need that color can help to answer. Not necessarily the hot fashion color of the moment, but a color crossing all areas of design which is an expression of a mood, an attitude, on the part of the consumers.”
 
This color is magnificent! I can not wait to wear it on my lips, as a beautiful lipstick!
