How Women are Revolutionizing 'Grillz'

         First off let me just say that no, I have not disappeared. Life happened. In other words, my college classes grew tougher, work became more challenging, bills grew larger, and I am overall exhausted. Who feels like blogging when their brain is ready to explode? I'm back though. Hopefully you guys didn't miss me too much. In any case, there's a new "trend" rising from inner cities and filtering its way through good ole social media that I'd like to talk about; something that every rapper loves, every mom despises, and every jewelry lover drools over. Today's topic of discussion concerns women's latest obsession with......gold teeth.

The Era of Cute: Fashion's New Fixation with Everything Adorable

    Cuteness is having a moment in fashion right now. In countries like Japan, it is simply a natural part of their culture but here in the Western World where sex appeal reigns supreme, we are starting to embrace the aesthetic.
          Today we are experiencing the era of cute; a time where cartoon phone cases and kitschy clutches are for both grown women and little girls. British designer Sophie Hulme was ahead of the curve when she released toy-inspired charms for her structured handbags, which became a hit in recent years.

Coach Slays for Spring 2015 at NYFW

          Every empire rises and falls, and Coach may be on the rise again since it's heyday during the 1990s. We got a glimpse of what's in store for Fall 2014 (check out my post here) which is an edgier version of the classic American brand's aesthetic, and now the Spring 2014 is revealed. It's quirky, sexy, and effortlessly cool with shaggy pastel jackets, chic mini bags, leather mini skirts, cartoon emblazoned tops, and everything in between. It is quite reminiscent of the 60s and 70s but not too retro or boring. Thank Coach's newly appointed creative director Stuart Vevers for bringing a fresh perspective and modern sensibility to our mom's favorite handbag brand.

12 Classic Kicks That Will Never Go Out of Style

Classic kicks
 Originally Posted on Vibe Vixen.

         Like a little black dress or a fresh white t-shirt, classic sneakers will always be au courant. Although new cult favorites are born every few years, there are some heavy-hitters in the game that stand the test of time. What constitutes a classic kick, you ask? It can be one that has made it through multiple generations or even one. Either way, this shoe looks good on darn near everyone or in every color way, fits seamlessly with any style, and has a silhouette that pretty much anyone can recognize. Oh, and we forgot to add that probably everybody and their momma owns a pair but hey, you can say the same about Michael Kors tote bags and mermaid weaves. We digress, though. Here is our list of 12 classic kicks that will never, ever go out of style on the next page.

Why Balmain's Fall/Winter 2014 Ad Campaign Rocks

          Balmain's Fall/Winter 2014 campaign is nothing short of stellar. Once again, Olivier Rousteing delivers an amazing ad-campaign starring Jourdan Dunn and the overrated Cara Delevingne for next season (yes, shade). As seen at his runway show in Paris, the campaign features some of his most anticipated Autumn pieces including Zebra separates, Khaki jackets, and bright fur coats which I can't help but fawn over. I would include the ultimate ode to urban culture aka bamboo earrings which set the looks off but y'all know damn well you can find those for one dollar at a wig shop near you. What stands out most in the ads though, is the beautiful range of shades represented; something you are hard-pressed to find on any runway or fashion ad these days *claps*. Check out the full ad-campaign after the jump.
