On November 9, 2013, I attended a fashion brunch at Luxe Boutique in Newark, NJ where me and other sophisticated ladies preview a holiday collection as well sipping and shopping. Luxe Boutique, owned by the beautiful Newark Native Linda Jumah, was brought to life in 2011. The boutique sold fashions for today’s modern fashionista who wanted to go outside of the norm but still be chic (contemporary).
When I first started this blog, I wanted to show that black models do exist because according to commenters on other blogs, they never saw any. But no matter how many times a blog features a black model (male or female), individuals will never be satisfied. And that is why the show must go on.
In 1983…CBS was the BOMB Tv station…it topped NBC and ABC before Cosby and Roseanne shut it down. As my father told the story, Thriller came on CBS…but the way I remember watching Thriller was at a Tv/Record Store in Downtown Newark when I was just 3 years old. SHORTLY AFTER THAT, my father (God Rest His Soul) came to my mother’s house. He was in the kitchen with a black shopping bag. He was amazed…so excited….so happy. He pulled out of the bag this long white tube…unrolled it…and there it was in glossy paper…a wall to ceiling poster of Michael Jackson looking dapper in a white collard shirt with tailored white pants with a bright yellow vest and bright yellow bow-tie to bring the satorialism out of the future King Of Pop…and then…
I have been taking longer breaks from blogging. I kind of lost my way a bit. Blogging is truly hard…especially when you are trying to be original. It’s more hard to concentrate on your site when personal issues surface and it takes priority.
I have not written a blog post in a long time. I have not been out for a long time. On the night of April 13, 2013…I gave myself a night to remember.
