SATC 2 Hollywood Premiere

Last night I had the pleasure of attending “The Glam Squad Remixx” a Sex in the City 2 VIP premiere; sponsored by Liquid Soul Media, BET Beauty Lounge, and Honey Magazine. It was a fashionable evening filled with food, cocktails, and a cute little gift bag filled with film paraphernalia. It truly was an awesome movie. I love the life stories of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda; but I have always been in love with the goosebumps and  butterflies I get from Patricia Field’s genius work. Some have expressed that they were not impressed by the films fashions, but everyone has their own opinion, right? Well, the ladies looked stunning on the red carpet Monday evening for their premiere- Sara Jessica Parker in Valentino, Kim Cattrall in Naeem Khan, Kristen Davis in a vintage Jean Desses, and Cynthia Nixon in Carolina Herrera. I hope you all will go and support the film and come back to chat about it with me. The night was fast paced, but I was able to get a couple of shots of my attire. I would apologize for not always knowing where my pieces come from, but I’m not! I enjoy venturing into other’s closets and seeing the treasures I may find. So, send me pictures of what you wear to see the film and I will post them! Have a wonderful week everyone!

"I am Samantha" VIP wristband. This was such a cute idea. We had to wear these to have access into the movie and for the mixer.

The cutest gift bags.

This year, for my birthday, I had the pleasure of sharing the day with my Mom. My birthday tends to fall on Mother’s Day every so often; but I don’t mind it. My family and I took a trip to Columbus (Ga), where my Dad is from, to spend Mother’s Day with my grandmother as well. It was a beautiful day filled with love and lots of hot weather, so a few (I say that loosely) pictures were in order. Sunday’s already speak “pretty” and “carefree” to me, so my birthday and Mother’s Day meant all the more feminine beauty. I picked this dress up earlier in the week at Target for a steal. I saw it and immediately thought it would be fitting for the dual tasked day. I was also sold when I remembered the turquoise braided belt I  had just purchased, and knew it would add a little spice to the dress.

I know you all are used to my afro, but I tried something new. I originally planned on taking the twist out for a curly afro, but decided to keep them. I pinned them up and added a gold butterfly pin for an extra touch. I needed something that made me feel pretty without taking my hair down. It took me quite some time to get used to it because I am used to having what feels like a foot of hair standing on top of my head.  The oh so cute girl in the pics is my 19 (almost 20) year old sister, Kerri. She’s so fashionable that many times I wonder where she came from. She’s the light of my life and she’s home for the summer so this should be fun. Stay tuned for our adventures 🙂 I hope you all had a wonderful day showing your moms the appreciation they deserve everyday; for putting up with us lol TTYS
