No caption needed. Rihanna killed this video. Its different, bold and she is truly going against the grain #love
Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of chatting with the fabulous, Tyrina Lee. If you don’t know who she is, she’s rapper, Nayvadius D. Wilburn, better known as Future Hendrix, exclusive wardrobe stylist, personal shopper and friend. But there is so much more to Ms. Lee than just being the stylist to one of the hottest rappers out .
I had the pleasure of interviewing Tyrina after going through her Intragram. Or shall I say, “insta-stalking” lol. So, after sending her a request (yes, sorry, her Instagram is private, for obvious reasons) she kindly accepted and I immediately went through her photos. After seeing a few, I really wanted to know more about Tyrina. She was pretty, had a nice slim yet curvaceous body and had a head full of beautiful hair that touched the middle of her back and if that wasn’t enough, her style was the epitome of fab and fly! All I wanted was to interview her to find out exactly who she was and about her personal style. Even though she is probably known for being Future’s personal shopper and stylist, I knew there was so much more to her!
I had only planned on the conversation being about an hour but after the first 15 mins., I felt like we were home girls. She’s extremely well spoken and is very easy to talk to. She isn’t the type of girls that likes to keep her beauty secrets to herself either, she gladly shared how she keeps her body super fit and her hair long and healthy!
I asked Tyrina to give me a few facts about her that probably wouldn’t appear in the media
She is born and raised in Harlem, NY and she’s 27 and she graduated from Georgia State with a double major. Majored in Biology and minored in Sociology. She’s also in medial school at Emory University!
I asked how did she get into styling. Continue Reading →
Here it is, Pills N Potions. I just watched the video for Nicki Minaj’s “Pills N Potions” and noticed she was wearing a pair of Tom Ford Ultra Feather Over The Knee Boots. She rocked them perfectly! Those boots are such a statement piece, you have to be simple in your attire. These boots retail for about $8,000 and are extremely rate but I found them here for less than half of the cost.
Ms. Minaj never disappoints. This subtle looks she’s going for is absolutely working for her. I loved the crazy Nicki but this new mature Nicki is even better. She effortlessly wears thesee fab and fly high end designers without the piece wearing her. She definitely knows what works and what doesn’t These Tom Ford boots are super fly but Onika Minaj is even Flyer! #FabandFlyApproved #PillsNPotions
Meet #FabandFly chick, Shyra Ely-Gash, retired WNBA player turned fashion stylist and CEO of Styles By M.E. I had the pleasure to interview, well actually chat, with Shyra Ely-Gash, formerly of the WNBA team, Indiana Fever. Shyra has a unique story because she knew exactly what she wanted to do when she retired from the league. She knew that because actually, fashion was her first love, even before she learned to play basketball. Shyra’s company, Styles By Me has styled the likes of WBA Coach Nikki Caldwell, LSU Head Coach; Tasha Butts, LSU Asst. Coach; Alysha Clark, former MTSU Asst. Coach/ Seattle Storm WNBA player.
During our conversation she spoke so passionately about her love for fashion. I outlined a few questions I felt would be good “get to know you better” questions that I wanted to share. It really was a fun talk. The call ended up being like a talk with my good friend! It was definitely a pleasure
1.) How did you go from WNBA to styling?
I initially targeted the women’s basketball community, in an effort to, merge my two loves of fashion and basketball. I always knew I would have a career in fashion, I just didn’t know in what capacity. I started out wanting to be a designer but eventually found my home in wardrobe building/styling. I have a degree in Fashion Merchandising from the Univ. of Tennessee, so for a long time, I thought I would be a buyer for large department store or something. No fun! My ultimate goal is to be a celebrity stylist. As a pro athlete, I figured I could Continue Reading →
Detroit Pistons NBA player Brandon Jennings posted a cute instagram photo of his fiance, the beautiful Tae Heckard and her fabulous Pink Valentino Leopard Slingbacks. Of course he always posts really cute pictures of his boo rocking all of the latest and greatest. I’ve been following Tae for some time now and she has great fashion sense. I love the way she pairs tomboy chic with high end designers.
For instance, in this picture that Brandon posted of Tae, she has her foot propped up while smoking a hookah. What I think is so awesome is, HE posted the shoes on HIS instagram page and not her. He is so proud of his new fiance! ( in which is should be!) Tae’s style is cool and laid back with a splash of haute couture.
This season Valentino’s Continue Reading →
