Street Style: Gabi of Young, Fat & Fabulous

This past weekend over brunch, a group of friends and I were discussing fashion (no surprise there) the subject evolved to fashion blogs and we started naming our favorites. We all had our iPhones, Driods and Blackberrys out so we quickly started googling sites to view each other's recommendations. Hands down the unanimous winner was Young, Fat & Fabulous. If you don't know, please get to know. Gabi Gregg is the blog's savvy and fashion forward author. Not only has she been featured on Vogue Italia's site, she's also MTV's Twitter correspondant. Don't sleep on this talent. Her style choices are to die for and she proves time-and-time again that women can look fabulous at any size! I've gotten so many ideas from her already. Click here for details on this photo's outfit.

Tie Up Top

June Ambrose in one of her line's turbans.
Solange, Estelle and Chrisette Michele all recently wore turban inspired head wraps to red carpet events.

So how many of you have tried wearing a turban-inspired head wrap? I'm not talking about the time you made a quick run to the grocery store and your hair was deep conditioning under there. I mean to an event where you had to dress up. It takes confidence to pull off but the celebrities above have mastered the look. If you're convinced and think you have the courage, check out Jun Ambrose's new line of turbans. Once you have your fabric in tow visit YouTube for countless tutorials on how to wrap it in style.

Update: Beyonce is also wearing a wrap in the promo photo of her new single over on iTunes.

Style Spotlight: Solange

Solange has evolved into her own. Now I will admit that I've been hard on her style choices in the past but Ms. Knowles has developed a truly unique style. She had me convinced after she debuted her shaved head... how many of us could have done the same thing whilst being in the public eye? As her hair has grown some, her style choices are become even more pronounced. From the bright colors, layered textures and unique accessories, Solange is a style icon in the making. Apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks so. WWD's style magazine put Solange, Selita Ebanks and Cassie on their latest cover and Carol's Daughter named them their newest spokes persons. And I know I'm not the only one who loved her album "Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams." I still listen to Sandcastle Disco.

Cash, Check or Charge?

Cash: Heavy Ruffle One Shoulder Cocktail Dress, $35.86,
Check: Light grey one shoulder dress by Red Herring, $83,
Charge: Curvaceous satin dress, $270,

Ladies please forgive me. I had a crazy, albeit it, life changing year in 2010. I bought a condo, found a new job and processed a green card. Needless to say it became difficult to blog while all this was going on. But I'm bizzack! I was reading my blog the other day and was so disappointed with myself for letting it go. Even if no one else read it, I'd still enjoying clicking through numerous sites to find the best clothes to bring a vision into fruition. Be patient with me as I'm still pulling together ideas, but now that I have far less responsibilities, I know I'll be back to normal in no time! The above post is self-explanatory to regular readers but if they're any newbies since my last post, check out the new site and category navigation to catch up.

Much love,
Sylvia xx
