Happy Black History Month!!!! During this month we celebrate all things Black; Black culture, Black innovators, Black entrepreneurs, Black entertainers etc. For this month I am devoting my blog to everything & anything BLACK OWNED. Today I am listing PT 1 of my “Buy Black” series. We all should be buying from Black businesses more frequently not just because it’s Black history month but why not start it up now.
Below are 6 Black owned clothing brands that you should know & support. Products range from $25.00 – $100.00.
1. God is Dope
2. HGC Apparel
3. POWER IN BLACK
4. Gifted Apparel NYC
6. Kashmir VIII
Lala Anthony hit the streets of NYC yesterday rocking a Camel teddy coat by Mistress Rocks. Retailing at $110. I’ve been searching for an oversized teddy for a while now and I think I just found the perfect one. I swear I love nothing more than when celebs rock items that I can afford. It gives me a hope that one day I too can have my Dior bag next to my basic Zara back.

Stumbled across this brand last year and fell like love with their bags. Orijin Culture bags are 100% cow hind leather. Originally retailing at $250 but is currently on sale for $199. Recently seen the beautiful Dawn Richard and Nicole Ari Parker rocking their bag. Would you splurge? Click the link below to check it out.
I have a small obsession with boots. Instead of becoming a “sneakerhead,” in high school I was the one with every type of boot. The beauty of a boot is that you have so many different option. There’s the blocked heels, skinny high heel, no heel, and lace ups. You can get so much wear out of ankle boots too, they’re a great transitional piece going into the cooler months. Ankle boots are one of my favorite boots next to the thigh high boot.
I feel like everyone should own at least one pair of these fall essentials. You can rock it with some booty shorts or styled with a over-sized leather. These are a must have staple in every fashionista’s closet.
Take a low below to see a few trendy boots this season.
MONTANA DETAIL STUDDED ANKLE BOOTS $54.99

The beautiful Toya Wright rocked this Luxe Protocol ‘Powder Blue Blazer Jumpsuit’ in her promo video for her new book “You Just Don’t Get It.” Retailing at $135.00. I just love when celebs wear items that us regular degulars can actually afford and still pay our bills on time.

Rihanna is already stealing NYFW’s spotlight with her Fenty X Puma SS18 collection schedule to show this week and her new beauty line launch. Rihanna’s highly anticipated makeup line Fenty Beauty just dropped and of course, she did not disappoint.
People can’t stop raving about this “new generation of beauty.” Rihanna was very keen on creating a makeup line that worked for all women. Rihanna’s collection includes 40 shade liquid foundations, four highlighter duos, 30 shades of stick cream that contour, blotting sheets, and one lip gloss shade. Once I saw the commercial I just knew I want the lip gloss. I always have a hard time finding a gloss the doesn’t look nude or pink on my lips. I absolutely love this lip gloss, it doesn’t go on too glossy and the applicator is very soft. This gloss also has a peachy smell and goes on super smooth. You can get Fenty Beauty at Sephora and Fenty Beauty.com.
Take a look below.
