Hey Mercury… BYE GIRL

Y’all it is about MF time – I mean I am not sure I could take anymore! Between my stomach virus two weeks ago and my hangover this past weekend, Mercury really had me F’ed up!!!! I am so happy that is officially May and can start off fresh this month.

WHICH MEANS #FIRSTDAYINMAY aka Met Gala Monday PEOPLE! Can you tell how pumped I am??? We all know how I love a red carpet, so this is probably the best day of my life. Being that mercury is OUT of retrograde this means I should be able to enjoy tonights red carpet without any interruptions, correct? Probably not but here is to hoping!

Two years ago I was one of those super fans freaks who stood outside waiting to see people walk the red carpet outside the MET. Even though I got some AMAZE shots and saw a ton of celebs – I WILL NEVER DO IT AGAIN. Thankfully, ENews will be covering the MET Gala red carpet for the first time LIVE! See, I told y’all this month was going to be 10x better!!!

So, get ready for a great month since last TOTALLY sucked! And to start off May right go take a listen to my new podcast episode on iTunes! Don’t worry I have a guest this week and we talk all about Vanderpump Rules!

Xx,

J

Emmy’s Red Carpet

Unless you live under a rock – last night was the Emmy’s! Now I don’t always watch the awards, I usually care more about the red carpet. BUT when it comes to the Emmy’s I have to because I am a crazy TV watcher. Also, depending on the host I can judge if I will enjoy it or not. Last night I was more than pleased with Jimmy Kimmel’s performance and just the night over all.

Now back to whats important, the fashion! When the night started I wasn’t too happy with what I was seeing. I felt like I was at my junior prom all over again – it was a lot of sequins. Little by little it kept getting better and there were many that shined like stars last night.

Here they are:

Anika Noni Rose – I have no idea what show she is on  but this white is beautiful on her! It is simple but still makes a statement.

Emmy Rossum – FYI she doesn’t have a stylist she dressers herself and works with designers. Emmy always looks beautiful but why hasn’t she been nominated for Shameless??? The white was the hot ticket last night – it works for the ones who are not nominated because even though it wasn’t their night you will remember what they wore!

Allison Janney – Always a bridesmaid never a bride. Last night she was the Belle of the freaking ball!! This Badgley Mischka dress was stunning and she looked amazing in it!

Kristen Bell – Secret garden is that you? This Zuhair Murad with the deep v-neck makes this dress sexy while still staying elegant.

Sarah Paulson – I am a believer of “less is more” but last night was Sarah’s night to shine and she killed it in The People vs. OJ and she has to step on that red carpet and turn heads. That is exactly what she did in this Prada ensemble.

Traci Ellis Ross – When you are Diana Ross daughter you can’t help but slay! Traci really glowed on the carpet in this Ralph Lauren one shoulder cut out.

rs_634x1024-160918163543-634-tracee-ellis-ross-emmy-awards-2016

Priyanka Chopra – Sometimes red on the red carpet is a little too much for me but Chopra really made it her own in this Jason Wu gown. She is definitely  one to be watching out for – she was every where during fashion and even though she wasn’t nominated for an Emmy that hasn’t stopped her.

These are some of my favorite looks from last night! Who was your choice?

Until the next Red Carpet.

Hello #NYFW

It is official, New York Fashion Week is happening people! Models are running past you on the street, traffic is backed up more than usual and everyone is looking their best – hoping to get a street style shot or the very least in the background of one. This particular Fashion Week is bittersweet for me because it is the first one I will not be working any shows. I have gotten use to running around with a head set on, clipboard and cell phone in hand. I miss the public relations side of fashion shows, it may be hectic and stress you out to the point that you may need a therapist but that’s what I love about it!

Enough about me… let’s get back to the wonders of Fashion Week! So it all started with Kanye West and Tom Ford, talk about starting out with a freaking bang. #YeezySeason4 was the only hashtag that mattered on Wednesday – besides the #AppleEvent of course. Whether they were praising him or bashing him, Kanye was the talk of the city (media) for his outrageous show.  A few hours later that chatter became all about Tom Ford and his presentation hosted at the Four Seasons. His guest list read like an invite to a night at the Oscars with nothing but A-Listers (See New York Times Article).

It is clear that even though  NYFW’16 has only begun it is off to a crazy start! I can’t imagine what else is in store this upcoming week. And if you are someone who isn’t into Fashion Week or think you are “too cool” for it. Then why are you even on my page ?

5 Work Essentials – For the Working Girl

Being that I have finally gotten a “big girl” job, I have had the pleasure of waking up at 5am every morning to pick out my outfit. I thought that I should share my essentials for the new working girl. For me-  I think it is important for your personality to shine through with specific pieces but to also be professional. These pieces work for someone and you can make them your own and put a twits on them. So here are my 5 Essentials for the working girl!

  1. First, the Medium Transport Tote from Madewell – I literally ordered this just last week! This tote is perfect for anyone, especially someone who is on the go all the time. Also, the fact that you can monogram it to make it more personal.  Screen Shot 2016-09-05 at 5.47.33 PM.png
  2. To me you should always have the perfect pant! This Skinny Ankle Pant from Vince Camuto is it. A great pair of black slacks that you can throw on and dress up with a cute heel and shirt never goes out of style. _12875977.jpg
  3. Third – if you already don’t have – a fitted blazer. This isn’t just a work essential its an everyday one! A blazer can take your outfit to a whole new level. I am OBSESSED with this ZARA blazer with elbow patches – you can’t go wrong with an elbow patch ladies. Screen Shot 2016-09-05 at 6.14.27 PM.png
  4. We can’t forget about a heel – most importantly a COMFORTABLE one. Nothing is worse than a girl who can’t walk in her heels! This Vince Portia Suede Pump is perfect to slip on when you get into the office right before an important meeting. Screen Shot 2016-09-05 at 6.49.26 PM.png
  5. Last, but definitely not leasts the go-to button up. Every girl should have one because you can do so much with it. J.crew‘s New Perfect Shirt is the ideal shirt – you can pair it with any type of pant, skirt or heel. Screen Shot 2016-09-05 at 6.52.00 PM.png

Okay, so those are my 5 essentials that every girl should have – especially the working girl! If you like any of the pieces I have selected just click on the photo and it will take you to where you can buy them!

You’re Welcome,

J

BBMA Best Red Carpet Looks

Just incase you didn’t know – I am not sure how you couldn’t – but the Billboard Music Awards was on last night. Unfortunately I didn’t not watch the awards #sorrynotsorry, but I did keep up with all the red carpet looks.

Since I am on this new spiritual journey I am only going to focus on the best red carpet looks and not the worst! I know, I am growing up it’s a proud moment for my parents. ANYWAY… let’s get on with my favorite outfits from last night.

Britney Spears

 rs_634x1024-160522154135-634-britney-spears-2016-billboard-music-awards.jpg

I mean let us all take a moment that she has come a long way from 2007. She is in shape and a hot mom of two!

Zendaya 

rs_634x1024-160522170815-634-zendaya-2016-billboard-music-awards.jpg

Aaliyah vibes all around! She just has a glow about her – it is sexy but still age appropriate.

Kelly Rowland

Even though it is very prom-ish – I don’t mind it and think she looks amazing

Lucy Hale

She is so petite and so cute that she makes anything work! The lace skirt paired with the leotard is a fun twist.

 

Who did you guys think looked the best last night?
