My Trip to Denver, CO!

Recently, I traveled to Denver, Colorado for some fun and relaxation. While I was there all I did was shop and eat... my two favorite things!

Day 1: 

And of course this was seen on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives! Yummyyyy

Day 2: 
The day in Evergreen, CO

At a cute little boutique called Sweet Water Boutique.

 A Native-American shop. They had very beautiful (expensive) jewelry!

Day 3: 

Greek Burger! 

Didn't go here just wanted to take a picture of the sign. 
We were trying to spot places that sell weed and i'm guessing they do. 

 Urban Outfitters! (we don't have one in Des Moines *sad face*) 
Can't wait to show you all my new awesome things from here. 

Best burger joint ever! (there's not one of these either in Des Moines *another sad face*)

Black History Fact in Fashion: Tamara Dobson

Tamera Dobson was a high fashion model turned movie star in the 1970's.

Dobson modeled for Vogue Magazine and went on to play a star role as Cleopatra Jones in Cleopatra Jones (1973) and Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold (1975)

She passed away in 2006 at age 59.

Tamara Dobson "...struck audiences as a high class inaccessible black woman who stepped high with head help even higher. She was a living wonder to behold, but impossible to possess", according to Brown Sugar: Eighy Years of America's Black Female Superstars by Donald Bogle. 

For that I thank her!

The Style of Coretta Scott King (Happy MLK Day!)

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

His beautiful wife and right hand, Coretta Scott King's style from way back when.

There's no doubt that to Coretta King, Martin was a hero just like he is to us. When everything was so wrong in the world with him everything was right and you can tell by looking at these pictures. 

Best Dressed: SAG Awards 2014

Notes before we begin: 

Lupita Nyong'o and Sofia Vergara are on my best dressed list again! They are on a roll.

And of course Jennifer Lawrence worked it with a body hugging gown with lots of sparkles by Dior which is a great turn around because for the Golden Globes she wore a very unflattering gown by Dior.

Camila's body in that gown is

Hannah Simone's gown and makeup makes me think of butterfly's and light colored flowers. *gentle sigh

Awww Kerri Washington and her baby bump!
