Toms now has eyewear! I was introduced to the Toms movement a few years back and I absolutely loved what they stood for! Â If you aren’t familiar with the brand, TomsÂ is a for-profit Â a companyÂ founded in 2006 byÂ Blake Mycoskie, an entrepreneur from Arlington, Texas. TheirÂ business model has been referred to as the “one for one concept” business model, referring to the company’s promise to deliver a pair of free, new shoes to a child in need for every sale of their retail product. The countries to which the free products are sent have included Argentina, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Haiti, Rwanda, South Africa, and the United States.
Toms expanded their brand and now sells eyewear as well in a similar philanthropic fashion as their shoes. For every pair of eye wear they sell, part of the profit is used to save or restore the eyesight for people in developing countries.
Each pair of eyewear has a stripe and a significant meaning. Every strip tells a story:
The front part of the temple representsÂ youÂ â€“
a pattern and color that you chose.
The stripe in the middle isÂ TOMS.
The color tips represent theÂ individual
whose sight you help restore.

9 Fall Handbags Under $100, how fab is that?! I just found this fabulous article that was writtenÂ for The Average Girl’s Guide by Tara,Â who blogs over atÂ Mix and Match FashionÂ and she wrote this really nice article showing readers where to findÂ super stylist and cute handbags all under $100. Most of the time we have to hunt down really good deals but Tara did all of the work for us and gave us a quick go to guide to find Â 9 Fall Handbags Under $100!
Now, I know NYFW is wrapping up but most of the designers ruling the runway aren’t necessarily the most affordable so I thought I would post something that every #fabandfly girl could afford. After some searching,Â I ran across Tara’s article and I thought it would be the perfect post for a Sunday.
Accessorizing any outfit with a remarkable bag is always Continue Reading →
Who Rocked the Black Thing High Givenchy PeplumÂ Dress Better, Kim KardashianÂ or Ciara? I was very shocked when I found this picture of CiaraÂ from the Spring 2013 Givenchy Paris Fashion week from earlier this year. It’s interesting because her sometimes bestie, Kim Kardashian wore the identical dress, well, almost identical, toÂ theÂ Fall GivenchyÂ fashion show for Paris Fashion week a few days ago.Â Â It had a Â few slight variations of course. Maybe they thought no one would notice. The creative director for Givenchy, Ricardo Tisci obviously didn’t want them walking around with the exact same dress so it looks like the variations are subtle but obvious.
Kim actually had shear paneling showing her new mommy cleavage and Ciara’sÂ was partially see through withÂ sheerÂ side panelsÂ and partially sheet sleevesÂ and his signature a peplum top.Â Ciara’sÂ split was a bit higher than Kim’s. Even though Ciara is much taller than Kim, I think her slit show much more leg.
Both ladies looked sexy, but I would like to hear your opinion of what you think. I think Kanye’s bestieÂ RicardoÂ TisciÂ could have put them in different dresses entirely versus just changing some of the detail. I wonder if Kim knows? I mean, she did hang out with Ciara during Paris Fashion Week back in March so I’m assuming she does.
This spring and summer we’ve watched the likes of Kim Kardashian, Ciara and LaLa, Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Chastain strut their stuff in these super fab Givenchy Knee-High Sheath Boots. When I first saw them, I Kim was wearing the black ones with the gold shark lock with a short leather skirt in Hawaii with her boo, Kanye West, and from the looks of the photo, it was super hot outside. So, unfortunately I wasn’t feeling them all that much because of the surroundings. I’m not a fan of leather and tall boots in the summer time. But hey, that’s just me. It just didn’t seem like appropriate attire. But now, they’re totally season appropriate. I think these are best paired with something short, either shorts or a cute skirt or with a cute pair of skinny jeans.
So far I’ve seen them in black, tan, brown and even a suede and leather version, with a few slight variations. The red pair, however hasn’t seemed to be as popular as the other colors like tan or black but the red isÂ by far my favorite. Brandy actually rocked the red pair back in Sept/2012 for a performance when she released her Two Eleven album. She looks cute. (pics below) Continue Reading →
Solange Knowles “Lovers in the Parking Lot” is actually a really dope song. I’m loving the tempo and I’m loving the cameos. I’m feel her old soulfulness. It’s so nice and refreshing. Go Solo! We’re routing for you girlie! #fabandfly
