THOU SHALL GIVE.. Give unto others

                                  I just posted this on my facebook- decided to blog about it:


"Instead of being such a selfish person in general, why dont you go to your closet pick out all the clothes you do not wear, shoes, etc and give to the less fortunate- try homeless or the ones who are mostly at need.. Dont be greedy and take them to good will to get some money back.. think about others.. Thats how God blesses you, for blessing others.. "

I have a huge heart to give to others, the ones that do not have anything. Since this is a fashion blog.. I sure can write about this... Since I was younger I have always been the one to give. People always say do some "Spring Cleaning", but most of the time they mean clean your house, or closet and throw things away. Well why not try cleaning out your closet of the things you do not wear anymore, have been left in your closest just to take up space, or those clothes that you look at for years, say well I just cant get rid of it, because I will wear it some day.. but you never do.

Food for thought- go to your closet, pick out all the items or accessories you do not wear- fold them up, place in  a box, find someone who is homeless or a family who can not afford to buy their teens or whatever age group you believe your clothes can fit and are appropiate for and give them away.. I have always been a person to do so. God has blessed me with so much and why would I not be a source to bless others.. I SPRING CLEAN every season. I will not GIVE MY CLOTHES TO THE GOODWILL or SOMEONE WHO LIVES A GOOD LIFE AND DECIDES THEY WANT TO PICK OUT THE GOOD ITEMS FOR THEMSELVES AND THEN GIVE THE LEFTOVERS TO OTHERS OR SALE. I can stand a person who has a heart like that.. Stop being selfish and give.. Homeless people are always in need.. Start this winter season and start giving.. you will be blessed in return.. Never fill your heart with Greed..



JUST SAYING... PREACH

Fallon Favors

Shoot out- to Dollface Fallon Favors- You all should remember Fallon from the hit BET show "College Hill Virgin Islands". Fallon is an incredible singer and is taking a hold of the music business. I had a pleasure in consulting looks for her show she did a couple of months ago. She is very kind, sweet and a beautiful girl, and her voice goes along with it.. I see great and properous things happening in her career... Her voice I havent heard since the days when people actually sung and truely had a voice..


 She is greatly influence by the 1920's era. I love the 1920's as well. its the old hollywood glam.. We focused on bringing that look into the new generation now, but show inspiration from the past. We talk about peplum dresses, knee lenght high waisted skirts, Sheer skirts with a sexy body suit showing through, leather studded gloves, laced gloves, veil hats that the women of that era wore all the time, wrapped dresses,  lots of beautiful pearls, and high heels of course.. It was fun to think about how we can make the inspired threads come to life.. I think Fallon looked very cute for her performance. And her audience of course loved her and showed her much love..



I look forward to fully styling Fallon for her next performance on New Years. Check Fallon out and listen to her hot mix tape.. Google her... You definitely will not be disappointed.. XOXO Fallon..

Write my LA RAW

I just decided to post these two coloums I wrote for a great Magazine called LA Raw- def check them out... I support this mag to the fullest and it was fun to write for them.. Check out LARAW.NET ...


XOXO

Dress Me in Me..

So this is really the first post ever of Bfreestyle that I have posted pics of outfits of myself, I usually only post another route .. I have stated that I do not want to make this blog about me. But here is a little sample of how I dress..

 My bday dress- decided to go really girly this year.. So I did.. matched with a long fringe silver and blk necklace and wore blk open toe heels.

 Love this dress- vegas totally.. this dress is very comfy and fits the body to perfection. Wore blk wedges with it..
 My cute moth green jumpsuit- paired it with beige heels and a small clutch- this was summertime so of course I paired it with the oversized feather/beads earrings- NOTE: Big oversized or feather earrings have ran its course.. this is why I say do not be a trend addict, you waist your money and the trend is gone within one season.. If you do, buy in small amounts or one item at that..
This was my bday #1 outfit- I am obsessed as you all know with brightness, so I am definitely noy afraid to wear any type of bright slacks/clothes. I paired it with a stretch cotton blend tank and took a leopard hankerchief and tide it into a bow..

Aww I wrote about these shoes in one of my first blogs- Julian Louie african print wedges.. These shoes are to die for and can add a lot to any outfit ... well depends on what type of outfit you wear... lmao I paird this with a rose colored blazer and a blk high waisted skirt with a white tank

My heart thigh high boots.. these were wore by kourtney kardashian. fell in love with them when I saw them on her. I paired it with one of my fav vest, wore blk leggings and a blk long sleeve cotton blend shirt.. Iheart this vest the texture in it is amazing- looks completely like a rug. lmao keeps you warm- change up from wearing furs... See up close pic for texture of my vest above..

And that's a wrap

I choose not to state the brands that I am wearing, with close, bags, and shoes.. I told you before do not want my blog about me..

" Love and Emily B" or " Love and Hip Hop"

Hey Barbies- ahhh its been a long time since my last blog. I apologize to those who've been sending me messages about when is my next post, looking forward to my next post and etc. I have been extremely busy with life, my company (Cha'Ren Consultants) - blog post coming soon for info.. and busy working..

 So I decided to start off my next post with a Fabulous chick who I admire- She was a young mother, single, had a passion and achieve her goal as a celebrity stylist. This is what I am trying to Achieve right now - Styling is my gift and I have the deepest passion for it..

Emily B- the mother of Fabulous.. A star of my favorite reality show- "Love and Hip Hop".


Emily B definitely has some major style, what I love about her is that unlike other celebrity stylist- she does not always necessarily go for the major brand name fashion threads all the time, as other stylist only stay in the designer wear and people who look up to them, struggle at making their wardrobe up to par. This makes Emily B a consumer friendly stylist and more relate-able in the since of people who can not afford the major designers all the time. She is someone to look up to and know that hey I can dress and buy just some of her cute fits she wears as well.


But do not get her wrong...  Her show game is amazing.. LOUBOUTINS GALORE- Below is a spread she did for PYNK MAGAZINE.. They decided to focus on her Louboutin collection- and believe me the ish is fierce.. Not only is Emily B a beautiful woman, she has a beautiful collection of shoes.. Iheartfabulousshoesimprobablyashoewhorenowdontjudgeme....



 Emily B has been styling looks of many celebrities for a years and although she has made Fabulous look on point along with many other celebrities, she is dope at styling herself as well. Even the fits she wears on the show are so freaking cute, and I want everything she wears... XOXO



                        

 I look up to her because she is an independent chick who has a name for herself outside of her man. Even being with him she had her name and is able to hold it down by herself. not to mention the apartment she just bought screams fabulous, she is an all around chick from what I see on TV. She not a " I need a man to make me somebody, or buy my expensive wardrobe or shoes to validate my existence in life as a somebody".. I respect women who are like this because I am that myself.. Let a man compliement you and you compliment him, and him not make you.. Bring something to the table instead of just a cute face and sometimes nice body.. This is a huge pet peeve of mine..

Emily B is actually in the mist of creating her own Fashion Line- Called "Emily B". I truly can not wait until her clothing line comes out, she will probably be the next designer I buy up..

 Here are a few candid shots of Emily B- note: I love her dress below, I just bought it.. getting ready for Miami of course duh !!!! LMAO ..




Love it luvergirl..

XOXO...

Goodmorning- lets check out some XOXO looks that def caught my eye and threads that I would def have in my cloest...

So this dress designed by Dominique Auxilly is such an XOXO dress to me. It is fun and exciting. Love the complimenting fabrics that are spandex and mesh.. and all know that i am obsessed with neon colors..... Short sleeve worn by Adrienne Bailon, long sleeve wore by video director and shoe designer - Vashtie Kola.. WHICH ONE WOULD YOU PREFER????
Love the stockings rihanna has on. I love this outfit, even though most would be like ummmmm IDK Maya... Im loving her jean jacket with fur, of course she is sporting the runway dreamz american flag shorts... This is why I love this girl so  much, she will wear anything and stunt it as if its the everyday fit mot women wear... XOXO
I love Malaysia Pargo, She is one of my favorite BBW's period and on BBWLA beside Draya maylasia is the only reason why I watch that show-  Personal note: I think they should swap out susie from BBWmiami and replace her with Malaysia.. Just saying.

Anywho I love this two piece middle eastern inspired outfit.. I love everything about this outfit. NOTE: When you are in NY and Chi town, go to consignment shops. You wil find all types of designer clothes, some new , some vintage. Id say shop at the consignment shops in those towns, if you are looking for the best of the best. LA is a little whack to me. But that is probably because I dress with that east coast inspired swag. I dress like a eastern instead of a western.


Til next time.....

Dsquard2 Skate bootie- Would you dare?? I would..

Dsquard2 has always been known for the outrageous shoe designs.. This may by the newest trend and other designers have picked up on the idea- Alain Quilica Payson has a skate boot out- Seen on beyonce..SEE BELOW

June Ambrose stunting the Dsquared Fall/Winter 2011 collection bootie.. These are something fierce..

 I love this look way better because it looks more like a wedge and an everyday bootie. This bootie has the more vintage skate boot feel. Like something in the 1920's.. The old leather that was seen on all boots made back then.. Very plain with no texture.. Definitely the true leather look and feel.. I am truely obsessed with the heel..



                                                          Beyonce stunts them with her belly

Lanvin- YOU melt my heart..

"I wish I knew how to enjoy it more"

Overweight, uncompromising, plagued by self-doubt, Alber Elbaz is an unlikely fashion icon. But when he took over as head designer of Paris fashion house Lanvin, sales soared (and so did his anxiety levels ...)


        Alber in the middle of all the ladies.. You would of never guess huh???? Mi heart him


 Love Lanvin Childrens line.. So happy Alber debut it earlier this year. I think it is soo cute when a high end designer, designs collection for children. Although most can be very pricey and seem a little unrealistic to buy a child a $500 dollar jacket when they will be out of it in the next two months, But hey if the parents are in style, so should thier children.. It should always go hand in hand.. RIGHT????


Watch Lanvin Spring 2012 Ready to wear

WWD: Lanvin RTW Spring 2012
I am soo obsessed with the sheer dresses this up coming spring season, Although I dont know if it would be appropiate for the everyday use. Id say only for night time outtings. Lanvin is amazing to me.. I will always heart Lanvin

This chick had impeccable style to me- Solange Knowles

Solange is def coming into her own and making her own icon statement through her fashion game. She is def the best dress chick out of the knowles family. Her inspiration is Diana Ross and you def can tell by her hair and the threads. She is all about color, just as I am so im sure you can see why I love her fashion sense. Patterns are another thing that alot of women are afraid to wear. I assume they dont feel confident enough to know that they can pull off a strong pattern material. African prints are the best when trying to find a print only because they are always enriched with fabulous bright colors. This is probably why missoni made their trade mark in their signature pattern because its like no other. You know that the jig saw patterns only belongs to missoni.. I am soo in love with patterns and colors..






Read it from her own words from an itnerview she just did


On her personal style
I definitely gravitate toward prints and color. I love to play with prints on prints, but I try to have a good instinct about what to match. Like, if I have a Pendleton print, mixing that with a tribal African print will give off National Geographic-gone-bad vibes. So if I wear an ethnic print, I contrast it with a bright top, or maybe stripes.

On her style inspiration
Diana Ross is the quite obvious one. If you look at pictures of her in the ’60s, ’70s, through the ’80s, she embodied everything about that era in such a timeless way. Her hair is a whole other conversation! And seeing photos of my mother from the ’60s and ’70s, she was a total rebel with her style. She had extremely fine hair and washed it with detergent to coarsen it up and had this amazing Afro.

On her favorite colour
Yellow is my absolute favorite color to wear. I also love hot pink. When I match my prints with those colors, I feel it’s a “me” outfit.

On her most recent purchase
I’m not a huge jacket girl because I grew up in Texas where we wear Daisy Dukes on Christmas. Then I lived in L.A. Having just moved here, I am understanding the importance of a real jacket. I bought a black Helmut Lang blazer and three coats from J. Crew. Now I’m moving on to walking shoes.

Style is truely AMAZING to me...
