Today’s blogger crush: If you are not familiar with with amazing style and knowledge of Patrice Grell-Yursik of Afrobella, I ask that you get on board immediately. Patrice is a beauty expert with a specific focus on natural beauty (specifically natural hair) that makes her hands down one of the best ladies in our game. She is a beauty MAVEN, people. Get involved and follow her heartfelt, gentle advice.
Music video on steady repeat: Inspired by fashion’s return to a more feminine silhouette from the 60’s and 70’s with a MUCH NEEDED return to glamour, I’m having a moment with Cher (actually, when am I NOT having a moment with the ORIGINAL style icon?) To quote Cher with the beloved (and missed) Sonny Bono, it’s times like these we must remember that “The Beat Goes On.”
Fab image that’s inspiring me: In case you weren’t aware of the ridiculous sensation that Kate Moss’ wedding photos have caused over the Internet, the world is agog at the images of the style icon/model/designer/all-around super muse’s big day. I cannot get over the image of her and her new husband, The Kills’ Jamie Hince, together. Can we talk about Kate’s Rodarte crimson sequined robe?
Can we talk about how AMAZE Jamie looks in red? Can we speak about how HOT this wedding night must have been? The minute the September issue of Vogue comes to your house, hibernate, draw the curtains and DROOL over these images.
Item of the moment: Again, loving the 70’s ladylike glamour moment for fall. This means a nice return to moody nails and the ultimate color du jour for all is Butter London’s 3Free Nail Lacquer in La Moss. No shimmer, no disco, just deep brooding goodness that stops just short of goth in the best way possible.
Style Icon of the Day: To close our our fabulous 70’s theme, here’s a moment with former spokesmodel (and Charlie’s Angels actress) Shelley Hack as one of the beauty favorites of the 70’s – Charlie!
