I donâ€™t know what possessed me, but put me in a room with friends and childhood toys (hell, just put me in any room) and things are bound to go off the rails!
So, I recently had the honor of presenting the United Negro College Fundâ€™s â€œ2013 Evening of the Stars.â€ Â It was a great night, and I met the MOST inspiring young people! I love the teens! Iâ€™ll be sharing a lot more in the dayâ€™s to come, but go ahead and mark your calendars and set your DVRs now because the show airsÂ JanuaryÂ 27th on BET! Â Thereâ€™s music, inspirational stories, and so much fun. Donâ€™t miss it!
But the point ofÂ thisÂ post, is to talk about the shoes I wore to this event. Â Well theyâ€™re not so much shoes, as they areâ€¦foot sculptures. Â There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING comfortable or wearable about these shoes. Â They are, however, gorgeous. Â So I just thought of them asÂ jewelryÂ for the feet, and hobbled and winced my way down the red carpet. Â I have a secret though: I didnâ€™t just bring these shoes to the event.
Alright you guys, I have a confession to make: I LOVE this look! Â I wore it to one of Clive Davis’ Grammy parties that I attended with my gorgeous siblings and delicious mom. Â We were just missing Rhonda, who was busy putting her son to bed, but she joined us later. Â The dress was a vintage piece of my mom’s, the clutch was a vintage Judith Leiber (alsoÂ courtesyÂ of my mom), the earrings were Prada,Â and the hair and eyes were inspired by some of my favorite tear sheets. Â So come in, and browse this very special edition of Tear It & Wear It!
