Happy first day of Summer! #HelloSummer!
Fashion girls know that some of the biggest summer trends right now are from the 90s – mom jeans, mules, and fanny packs to name a few.
Thin-strap dresses are taking a trip from the 90s into 2018 and I am loving this look. I guarantee this trend is going to be huge and seen on all of your friends because it’s easy, comfortable and can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with some fire sneakers.
Remember when Sarah Jessica Parker wore one in 1997:
Sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid wore one recently (2018):
I can see this trend lasting all summer long. I will be rocking some flats, heels, and sneakers with my thin-strap dress this summer.
Off-White designer Virgil Abloh’s first ever Louis Vuitton show as the Artistic Director of Menswear took place on Thursday in Paris and was attended by all the cool kids (aka his celebrity friends).
The celeb attendees included models Bella Hadid and Naomi Campbell, as well as, Kim Kardashian West and hubby Kanye West. They all showed up rocking off-white or brightly hue-themed outfits to the show.
Virgil definitely stuck to his “off-white” roots for his first collection with Louis Vuitton:
Kim Kardashian West is being mommy shamed again… This time for doing what all moms do – allow their daughter’s to straighten their hair when they reach a certain milestone. That’s right, KKW is being shamed for allowing North West to step out with a straight ponytail on her 5th birthday Friday, June 15th.
I remember the first time I got my hair straightened (with a hot comb, before I gave into the creamy crack) it was for my 10th birthday and I begged my mom to let me wear it lose with a headband instead of in pigtails like a little girl. I was experiencing my rite of passage as black girl and so is Northie.
Recently, I took my curly-haired 4-year-old daughter to Milk and Cookies Kids Spa to get a braided hairstyle and in order for this to happen, the beautician had to wash, conditon, and then blow dry the hair straight so that it was easier to braid. My baby girl loved her hair straight and I would do it again when she’s much older because I love her curls. Selfish, I know…
Kim straightening North’s hair is no big deal to me because the girls in this family are known for their slick, straight, mermaid-like hair.
Let Northie enjoy being a 5-year-old and leave Kim alone! She’s doing what mommies do for their little girls. I would do the same!
Beyonce and Jay-Z aka The Carters dropped a surprise joint album on Saturday, June 16th and the Beyhive went WILD!!!
The album is called “Everything is Love” and features banging tracks to get turnt. I heard the first track “Summer” while shopping in the Bape Store on Saturday afternoon. I heard the song and was like – “wait a minute. Is this new?? I’ve never heard this from Bey” – Immediately I had to check online to see what was happening, I thought my ears were playing tricks on me.
Along with the album, the Carters released a music video – filmed at the Louvre for “Apes**t” and the visuals are a masterpiece.
Both Bey and Jay are getting some things off their chest on the album including Jay’s beef with Kanye and Bey not giving two fucks about Lemonade streaming on Spotify.
Great album. My summer has been made (almost)! Just waiting for Drake to drop later on this month.
