I had a cocktail, meet some new people but that best thing about the event was the Lumete shades.  Everyone who attended the Cocktails & Shades: An Evening with YPI & Lumete Eyewear had a chance to try on and ask question about Lumete Eyewear.  After speaking with Clara Herrera, Co founder of Lumete Eyewear and trying on several styles, I was hook.    Here are some photos of the Cocktails & Shades: An Evening with YPI & Lumete Eyewear!

Heavy on Fashion Events: A Style Doubter goes to IFB Conference..Help!

Photo Courtesy  I just brought my ticket for the IFB Conference and I am so excited! The only issue is, what am I going to wear. I mean I am a fashion/beauty blogger after all and I do not know what I am going to wear? How crazy is that.  When it comes to my own wardrobe, I am a style doubter. You probably wondering what a style doubter is? It is when you doubt or criticize everything you wear. I mean I am a chronic style doubter, I usually change my outfits at least 3 times before I leave the house. I know that is a problem! Until I get over my seriously self diagnosed style doubter syndrome, I am going to leave the choice up to you. Yeah you!   For the next 3 weeks I am going to post some potential outfits and you guys can vote on what I will wear for the IFB Conference in NYC!  Live,Style,Write Malanb

Heavy on Fashion: A Look at ImaniLia Designs

Hello all my Heavy on Fashion   confidantes. Today I am happy to present a great new designer line called ImaniLia Designs.  Imani Whyte is the fashionable and creative mind behind ImaniLia Designs. Born and raised in Harlem, NY Imani began designing and making clothes at the tender age of 10. After graduating from Savannah College of Art and Design with a Bachelor in Fine Arts in Fashion Design, Imani developed ImaniLa Designs. Today Imani created a great clothing line and branched into other areas in fashion  including   Couture, Evening Wear, Handbags, and Hair Accessories.  Today I am going to show one of my favorite collections from ImaniLa Designs  called Royal Jungle.  The use of   African  prints and other tribal patterns with the combination of bright colors makes this collection is a summer must.   I fell in fashion love with  this 2010 collection.  Here is a glimpse Royal Jungle by ImaniLa Designs.  Photography credit to:  Matt Borkowski -
