Sparkle Style

Good Evening all!
I am excited about this style post because it was a challenge for me. I have had this skirt for weeks not but I was not sure how to style it, considering the unique material. It's such a summer-early fall type of skirt but the material is very thick cotton and seemed like it is meant for late winter-early spring. I paired it will a black silk shirt, white pumps, and red lip and nails, details are at the end of the post. Please leave feedback! I would love to know if you all were feeling it! Enjoy!

Silk Shirt: Calvin Klein, Skirt: TBA, Shoes: Scence, Rings: F21 & Swarovski, Earrings: Aldo

Kanye West Alleged Assault on young man that "Verbally Assualted" Kim Kardashian.

We have all heard this story but just for those who missed it! 
According to the Beverly Hills Police Department, they are currently investigating a misdemeanor battery incident, with the subject named as Kanye West.
 A source tells The Monae Group the events leading up the alternation, which allegedly occurred between West and a teenager, whom the insider described as an "around 18-year-old white man."
Kim and Kanye were meeting for a design appointment Monday, January 13th. Kim arrived later than Kanye as was swarmed by photographers. En route into the building, some sources say the 18-year old tried to help Kim into the building as he started screaming,  "F**k these fa**ot-ass n****rs"" -- referring to the paparazzi.  Kim then told him it was not appropriate to use use racial and prejudice slurs and he turned on her and verbally assaulted her. TMZ says he said screamed at her saying, "F**k you bitch.  Just trying to help you.  Shut up n****r lover, stupid slut."

Apparently that got Kim livid and as she tried to defender herself as they were walking into the building, the guy continued berating her into the stairwell telling her to "shut the f--k up" before continuing to use the N-word while aiming his insults at Kim. Kanye called Km on her cell because she was so delayed and when the guy realized Kanye was on the phone he allegedly said, "F**k you N****r."   Kanye -- who was already in the building heard Kim hysterically crying as the 18-year old threaten to "Kill Her" -- he then rushed to met up with Kim.

Sources say once Kanye and Kim meet up, they rushed into the waiting room of chiropractor Richard Hill to confront the the 18-year-old and the teen started once again to insult the couple. A live source said. "He was in Kanye's face and wouldn't stop. He was taunting him. Police were called to the scene." 
Witnesses say Kanye punched the guy and Kim screamed, "We have it all on tape." 

The Beverly Hills Police Department has yet to release any further information, and, according to the second source, Kim is currently "talking to her counsel and considering her options."
Yesterday, Kanye (pictured below) flew to Paris for the men's Givenchy fashion show and sat front row with actress, Noomi Rapace.

LATE NEWS! 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington

Good morning followers! My footage from this event was misplaced and has just been recovered. I know this is VERY late but here is some early morning late news! 

On August 28th, 2013, we celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington. This is a huge event in not just Black history but in American history. Citizens from across the country came to the nations capital to recognize and celebrate this historic march that happen 50 years ago on August 28th, 1963. This event was a groundbreaking nationally recognized moment that changed this country.  

          Barack Obama marked the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech on that Wednesday with a powerful declaration that economic inequality has left the dream unfulfilled for many Americans. On the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, where King delivered his resounding address in 1963 at a pivotal time in the battle for racial equality in the US, the president said the civil rights leader's words "belong to the ages, possessing a power and prophecy unmatched in our time".

         The president's speech ranged across gay equality, women's rights and immigration reform, but focused on what he called the continuing "shadow of poverty" – the aspect of King's dream that was furthest from being realized. "For the men and women who gathered 50 years ago were not there in search of some abstract ideal," he said. "They were there seeking jobs as well as justice. Not just the absence of oppression but the presence of economic opportunity."
Obama did not dwell overly long on King, choosing also to pay tribute to the thousands of demonstrated in the March on Washington five decades ago. Their achievements had benefited not just African Americans, but all minorities, he said.
 Other distinguished activist gave speeches including, Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton. 

          Obama has often said King is one of his heroes, and he keeps a framed programme from the 1963 march in the Oval Office. I honor both Martin Luther King, President Barack Obama and all the courageous people who marched in 1963 and in 2013. It was an honor to do press at this distinguished event and I am prod to call myself and African American.
