It’s a crucial moment…you have an important meeting and you discover that you’ve left your entire make up bag in your gym bag at home. Now you’re in a panic because how are you going to put your best face forward and all you have in your purse is one lousy lip gloss?

New Artist, New Album: Rashad – The Quiet Loud

Have you ever listened to an album and you felt like it captured every feeling that you had experienced in the last year? I found a Soul artist, who I refuse to call an R&B artist, when I was trying to find another song all together. Every song on his album has so much soul. If you’re wondering who he is, he is Columbus, Ohio native Rashad and his album is ‘The Quiet Loud’. This producer/singer is giving you 15 tracks of life’s experiences that we can all relate to. He’s found the perfect way to fuse R&B/Soul with Hip-Hop. Who said R&B was dead?! Listen to Rashad’s ‘The Quiet Loud’ here or in the new music section located in the middle of

Take Flight: Pack Light, Dress Comfortable

4-pieces necessary for the spontaneous girl’s escapade.  Light Leather Jacket: It’s much easier to get sick when traveling with all of the new germs you’re expose to and the change in temperature and not to mention the air conditioning in airports and on airplanes. Keep the cold at bay by wearing a jacket to keep you warm. Flats: Bunions and corns are not attractive. The stress that heels put on your feet when traveling is unnecessary. Give your feet a rest and wear a pair of chic flats. Backpack: A weekend trip does not require your entire closet. Grab a few light items and go! Joggers: Those tiny airplane seats are already uncomfortable, so why wear anything that will make matters worst? Joggers are great for comfort. Primeboots clothing $495 – S/W/F white pants $135 – Alice Olivia sneaker Balenciaga backpack

P.O.W.:Tommy Hilfiger Flag Cropped Sweatshirt

My first thought when I spotted this cropped top was the Tommy Hilfiger 90s ad campaign with Aaliyah, Kidada Jones, Kate Hudson, Mark Ronson, Simon Rex and a host of others in an effort to urbanize the brand. I can even think of the Macy’s in-store campaign with Destiny’s Child. We didn’t have the in your face, over saturation of social media to keep the brand on our minds… just the artists we loved in ads to influence our fashion sense. It was the 90s…the good ol’ days. In an effort to revive the brand and revisit the 90s I have been seeing the wind breakers, bubble coats and underwear up and down my timeline in retweet after retweet. And of course, like everyone else you click the link to see where you can purchase those items and nothing! I happened to bump into this piece and figured I would share the wealth. So, here’s to nostalgia. Tommy Hilfiger Flagged Cropped Sweatshirt Available here.
