Balance.Real Friends.Where are they?

Loves! In the mist of covering events for LA Fashion Week ( Vibe Magazine/The Curvy Fashionista),Tora Bedgood, an amazing Music Journalist hosted a pre-bday party at Rush Lounge!Can you say ..'FUN'? Also one of my very best girlfriends, I made it my personal duty to make her day as amazing as possible. Needless to say, I missed a few events on this day in  return.

Despite the flexible definition of 'friendship' and the many careless ways it is tossed around nowadays, I can truly say that this woman is my 'real' friend.We met a little over a year ago when I was assisting on a shoot for Angela Simmons. I suppose you can say it was 'love at first sight'?


As LA Fashion Weekend comes to a close, I will be updating via Twitter & posting a few cool looks on here.Until then- Happppyy birthday Tora B!You can follow her on twitter @Charlie_Danger !

Fashion Exhibit: Coming to life!

The past year I have been working with Woodbury Universities Fashion Exhibit which holds some of the most beautiful historic pieces I have ever seen ( In my lifetime). From YSL to Courreges, I am always blown away by the taste and aesthetic of the designer brands we hold.Since this past summer, we have been preparing for this years Fall exhibit- with a theme of geometric shapes and beauty.

In Social Media class.. Socializing? ( Do not try this at home)

Aside from trying to change the world one fashion article at a time, I also enjoy going to school.So.. for the last 3 1/2 years I have been attending Woodbury University with a focus in Communications and Fashion.

The best part about school is it's social construct in a classroom: you never really know what you're going to get ( Life is like..a box of chocolate?). In this particular case 'you never know what your going to get when putting a Power 106 fashionista (Jess) and a Vogue inherited Journalist ( That would be me)  in a Social Media class...together.'

The outcome? We "Get Social". Basically, although extremely long, this course is doing wonders for my communication strategies and social media love affairs.

Deemed:The Curvy Fashionista!


As I prep for the Los Angeles arrival of Bougie Magazine and the shoot for Dope Magazine, I have recently been adopted into the Curvy Fashionista family as one of the many amazing Fashion Editors! Bringing both a personal and professional admiration to my 'to-do' list, The Curvy Fashionista is one of the most highly proclaimed plus size fashion sites in the webworld. Owner of T.C.F and Style Director of Plus Model Magazine, Marie Leggette, has been a great inspiration for myself and fellow fashion addicts.

I am so very honored and excited to be working more closely with T.C.F!
