Killer Heels Exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum

Earlier this month, the Brooklyn Museum has begun hosting the exhibit “Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe. It runs from September 10, 2014 – February 15, 2015. As someone who loves shoes, fashion, and museums, it seems like a must do. “From the high platform chopines of sixteenth-century Italy to the glamorous stilettos on today’s runways and red carpets, the exhibition looks at the high-heeled shoe’s rich and varied history and its enduring place in our popular imagination.” Not only will we have a chance to look at various types of heels and learn about them from centuries ago, the exhibit will also feature six short films specially commissioned for the exhibit.

So if you don’t have a chance in the upcoming few weeks, you have some time to make it at the top of the new year. I haven’t gone yet but I will be going in the upcoming few weeks and updating this post with all of the amazing things I saw.

Below is a link to the museum page with the exhibition details. Take a look and go learn about the art of high heeled shoe: http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/exhibitions/heels/

It is sponsored by Nordstrom and W magazine.

Get to the Brooklyn Museum by taking the 2/3 trains to Eastern Parkway Brooklyn Museum.

New Shoes. Make them fit.

TalurSo I recently got a new pair of shoes and they fit when I tried them on but I was so excited to wear them to an event, I decided to skip past the part of breaking them in. Needless to say, within a few short hours, I was ready to make a necessary wardrobe change. Enter ballet flats. I knew I shouldn’t have done it, but now that I have worn them, I have to find a way to stretch them out just a little to make my life easier. Below are some Style Hacks I have read about and learned over time. Hopefully, they help you too!

Stretching Shoes

One of the annoying things about shoes, as if, is when you are in between half sizes. The whole size is too small and the half size is too big, you have to create your own way to get them to fit just right. If you want to save yourself a few bucks and not take your new leather goodies to the shoemaker, try one of these ideas:

1. Fill a plastic bag with water, putting it in your leather show, and let that bad boy sit in the freezer and chill out. When the water turns to ice, it will expand the leather and give your shoe a good stretch.

2. Spray the inside of your shoe with rubbing alcohol. Stuff your show with newspaper/paper bags, or some other crumpable object until it is stuffed in there nice and tight. And then, put in some more. Let the shoes sit overnight and you should have a better fit in the morning.

3. Put on some extra thick socks and get some heat on those shoes. Try using a blow drying on your leathers while wearing them. Walk around a bit to stretch it some. Once it cools, keep the shoes on and walk some more. Do it until your name is Cinderella, or the shoe fits!

New Music Tuesday – Jennifer Hudson ‘JHUD’

Every week, we listen to the radio and check the airwaves for new and upcoming artists. We wait to hear the new music drop to know what songs we should be learning for the next party. This week, we look at a long time favorite, Award winning, Jennifer Hudson. From way back in her ‘Dreamgirls’ days and her proving her worth on American Idol, we all knew JHud could belt out a tune. With her third studio album, produced by Pharrell Williams, JHud, brings us soul and an upbeat theme. She performed the first single ‘I Can’t Describe’ at the 2013 Soul Train awards, months in advance of the album release. Today, we get to listen to the full album, which features guests such as R.Kelly, T.I., Iggy Azalea, and Timbaland.

Check out the music below and let me know what you think! The album is available in stores today!

Fashion. Fall. Fun.

Now that the season is changing, it is time to switch up the wardrobe. If you have been following, you know that my recent obsession with Poshmark App has been a little crazy. The site allows you to not only post your clothes, new or gently used please, but you can use your funds to purchase new clothes. With this, I realized that once I sell enough clothes, I wont need to swipe a card anymore because I can get all of my coveted items for less than expensive.

In either case, the season is changing and now it is time to switch out the summer essentials and fall back into autumn. This is one of my favorite times of year because I get to pull out my comfy cozy sweaters, layer my garments, and bring out my missed jackets. I think this year, I am definitely in need of a clothing haul and to get rid of some of my older and outgrown items. I find myself noticing that “i just don’t want to wear that anymore” and pushing it further back into the closet. So this weekend, I am going to be pulling out all the old items and making room for the new stuff. How often do you usually pull out your old items? Leave a note in the comments below!

COOL ASS COVERS: Lorde Covers Kanye West’s “Flashing Lights” (VIDEO)

Our favorite bitchy resting face pop star Lorde covers our favorite bitchy resting face rap star Kanye West’s  “Flashing Lights.”

During her tour stop in the City of Brotherly Love, the “Royals” singer took a few moments to cover a few of her personal favorite songs, including Kanye’s Graduation smash and Bon Iver’s “Heavenly Father.”

Channeling her best Kanye mood, Lorde dramatically sang the Dwele-assisted single while rocking a camel-colored cloak as lights rapidly flashed around her. Lorde’s vocal take on “Flashing Lights” is definitely different from the original.

Watch the performance in the video up top. Also, find out if the 18-year-old Kiwi will be in a city near you.
