Of the three music videos that have come out this month, "Party" is my favorite. Trailer park Beyonce wears orange pro nails, gold door-knocker earrings, Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Nicholas Kirkwood, Rodarte, Dior Tahiti wrap around sash heels and other expensive designer looks. While on set of this video she was shooting a Dazed & Confused cover shoot and editorial, that issue dropped in June. She was photographed as she was shooting the video while holding an ice cream cone and stepping out of an RV in a custom Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci jumper and vintage Pucci pants in an Honour latex suspender belt, giving you the most drop dead gorgeous ''SSUP?" look ever. Solange's Top Shop American flag shorts are to die for and that yellow fur that B is wearing with a bodysuit and bunny ears is EVERYTHING! B likes to party with a few familiar faces Shaun Ross, Coco & Breezy, Dai Burger and spotted a few of Rembrandt Duran's ADEEN accessories. I will mention that I'm a bit disappointed that she swapped out Andre 3000 for J. Cole, either way she looks stunning!

This morning while on the Vogue Italy website I stumbled upon one of my best friends model Kayla Mayhew featured under MUUSE. For those who are not familiar, MUUSE is an amazing website that produces fashion design graduates collections which later become available for sale. She's no stranger when it comes to posing in front of the camera, and was the latest muse for designer Nancy J. Park and photographer/creative director Alicia Martin of ASM Photography. Nancy Park is a graduate from Parsons the New School for Design. She draws her inspirations from finding the beauty in the world around us in the most unexpected places. The "Human Mind" collection was inspired most by the human organ, the brain. The brain is an infinite storage that processes information, forms interpersonal connections, creates memories, but most importantly dreams. With each minimal silhouette and structured embellishments are designed to imitate the layers of the cerebrum.

If you are weighted down under a sense of oppression, look for light and hope. If you are bothered by fears of poverty or want, inhabit the sensation of prosperity and abundance. If you can continuously strive for the things you crave and do not have, you will eventually get them.

I've been obsessed with sheer maxi dresses and leopard print as of late. Last Tuesday I was invited to attend the Lily & Migs fashion show in the tents at Boston Fashion Week. This was the first year that the local designers of Boston would be showcasing their collections in one place. I have to admit that I wasn't expecting it to go as smoothly as it did, although there're some things that need improvement. When I arrived to the Mandarine Oriental hotel where the tents were located, I stopped for pictures and drinks while mixing and mingling with my fellow Boston bloggers before the show started. I was seated in the third row but was moved to the front row near the press pit by the Boston Fashion Week founder Jay Calderin, he then asked to take photos of me. It must have been the huge bun and colorful sheer maxi that caught his attention! When the Lily & Migs show started and the first model walked down the runway, the fishtail braids and make-up immediately caught my attention. I loved the ruffles, sheer fabrics, and feminine pieces; although, the styling could have been much better. After the show I stopped for more pictures and then headed to the Lily & Migs after-party in their showroom on Newbury Street.
