Are U Bossy?

Today, I was listening to Spotify and came across the song “Bossy” by Kelis. Now for those of you who have not heard this song, you have to listen to the lyrics. It’s contagious. With that said, I thought about all of the GlamCurvy divas that is a BOSS. Check out these bossy looks at the office, afterwork, and nightlife.

Lyrics from the hit song “Bossy”

You don’t have to love me
You don’t even have to like me
But you will respect me
You know why?
Cause I’m a boss!

February ’14 Tribute to Black History

Not sure if you feel the same way, but the month of February went by super FASST.  February is a such an historical month with the celebration of “Black History”. However, I couldn’t let this month end without highlighting some of America “black royalty” icons. For many of us, its just history.  To those people who ancestors fought, protest, and died to fight for equality, freedom, and justice for blacks in America this is “heroic” history.

Before we sign off on February 28, 2014,  let’s take a step back into time and remember a few of our famous black american female icons.

1. Ella Fitzgerald (1917-1996) – Jazz Singer

2. Etta James (1938-2012) – Singer/Songwriter

3. Eartha Kitt (1927-2008) – Singer, Actress, Dancer, and Cabaret Star

Can we say CONFIDENCE. Every since the diva MJ arrived on the Bravo network show Shah’s on Sunset her plus size have been a conversation. Good or Bad. I have read several blogs where MJ is the subject matter of controversy because of her carefree spirit showcasing her plus size curvy body. Well I am hear to say,  she gave me inspiration to embrace YOU.

My Jewelry Box Must Haves

The New Year is here and its time to start planning out what my fashion accessories would consist of for Spring 2014. I am looking for some unique, semi -trendy pieces that are timeless  and cross functional across multiple looks. As usual, I started a jewelry box  visionboard on Pinterest capturing some of the must haves I have to hunt down. Now some of these, I can find but the budget is not there to own it. But searching for a similar look is just as exciting.

Happy GlamCurvy Friday!

Ending Racism on the Runway

model2

In the many years  of watching designers display there collection, I rarely saw models that look like me.  Even while reading the  fashion magazines I never saw a lot of diversity in the ads from designers such as Versace, Calvin Klein, Donna Karen, Gucci, Louis  Vuitton, Moschino,  and many more.  I never understood why there weren’t more black, asian, or latino models gracing the ads and runways.  It always seem the white female models were the norm.

Recently, I came across an article where a formal model agency owner name Bethann Hardison  is campaigning to increase diversity on the runway. Bethann has been reaching out to several fashion councils in Britain, Milan, and Paris with the letter below.

Screen Shot 2013-10-03 at 9.36.34 PM

Bethann’s also stated “Calvin Klein, Marc by Marc, Proenza Schouler, Victoria Beckham, Rag & Bone, BCBG, Rodarte, Mulberry, Preen, Prada, Versace, Marni, Celine, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, among many others. Designers called out include Calvin Klein, Marc by Marc, Proenza Schouler, Victoria Beckham, Rag & Bone, BCBG, Rodarte, Mulberry, Preen, Prada, Versace, Marni, Celine, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, among many others. It’s immediately apparent that, far from being leaders in the industry, big-name designers are some of the worst offenders.”

Also, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), headed by Diane von Furstenberg, is preparing for talks with Bethann Hardison and The Diversity Coalition’s accusations of racism.

I commend Bethann’s and others attempt to bring awareness and push for more diversity on the runway. It’s just sad that this topic even exist.
