Borris Powell Grand Opening

Fashion

Last night I attended the grand opening for Borris Powell retail location at 216 S. Jefferson in Chicago. It is located on a great street with plenty of parking 👏and it is in amazing retail space with big store front windows that proudly display mannequins dripped in Borris Powell. I fell in love with Borris Powell all over again as soon as I stepped foot into his space.

I was able to chat for a few hours about patterns, garments, sequins and he shared details of his up coming projects. He will be headed to Omaha on 8.21 to show a small teaser collection on 8.22 and headlining their finale show on 8.24. Then a shopping event on 8.25. Chicago will have yet another chance to show love and support on 10.20 for his last show of the year titled BorN 1920. You can find more details http://www.BorrisPowell.com

I had to try on his leather trench from the Borris Powell Trapped Collection which was shown at the Drake hotel in Chicago. This coat is SICK AF!! It’s custom embossed hornback. Genuine leather. I think I dreamed about it last night. It is on MUST OWN list ❤

Mini Take Over

Fashion

There hasn’t been a mini takeover since the early 2000’s when most fashionistas were looking for a mini LV monogrammed barrel wristlet like the one sold on fashionphile.com

Here we are halfway through 2019 and the mini/micro bag obsession is back amongst us. With fashion designers like Jacquemus, Phomaz and Louis Vuitton leading this craze with the most amazing designs of minis and micro bags.

If you are a trendsetter they are a must-have item in your closet. These mini bags will add an extra dash of oomph 💃to any outfit but if you’re looking for storage room the minis might not fulfill that need. They are obviously a fashion bag and a conversation starter.

Noor in the city

Fashion

Noor hits the city streets in some killer looks. Colors from this shoot give me life even on such a grey day. I’m obsessed with this clear raincoat. Everyone should have a clear rairaincoat their closet.

It was an exciting shoot we prepared for the rain and it didn’t even affect the shoot at all. It was the first time I used my portable changing and that was a funny experience. I believe there is actual footage of me in a physical altercation with it 🤣
