The Essence Festival is just a couple days away. *squeal* I’m so excited to be attending the festival for the first time. Since I’ve shared my tips on the essentials for a head to heel look it might be a good time to talk about what to pack for the Essence Festival. I’ve been keeping a running list of things to take with me for the holiday/festival weekend and I can already tell I’m going to have a few packing woes. Regardless of what makes the cut or gets left behind, there are just some things that YOU CAN NOT travel to New Orleans without.
Watch my second, quick tip video listing the 5 must have items to pack for the Essence Festival
By now, hopefully you have seen the Empower U video on essence.com, if not here on KK with me detailing the 5 fashion essentials you need for a stylish Head to Heel look. The Video is one of three to help Empower U in a #StateofStyle with the best fashion and style tips. While the first video highlights five stylish essentials, I can show you way better than I can tell you. Here are five layouts with five of the essentials you need, 25 pieces in total to help you accomplish that head to heel look for the Essence Festival and summer in general
A recent log on to Essence.com and you may have seen a pop up video with yours truly highlighting fashion needs to “Empower U” for the upcoming Essence Festival. If not then, let this serve as an announcement and run over to the site AFTER you read the details on my good news.
Hey Kuties if you’re anything like me you love a great jewel. I tend to mix-n-match the same pieces over and over again- a few investment pieces (my hermes click clack bracelets) with less expensive pieces (forever 21 statement necklaces) that I interchange with each day’s outfit.
One investment piece I’ve been wanting to add to my collection is Lulu Frost. Her designs blend old world charm with modern day glam, spinning tut some hella chi jewels. She’s been around for years and has even done a collaborations with J.Crew-a testimony to the kind of price tag attached to her baubles.
Enter the fashion Gods with a a sample sale to save my wallets. And this isnt one of those NYC only sample sale. You can visit in studio or go online and check out the sample sale happening this week. Pieces are suppose to be 40-80% off jewelry and I’m hoping that the right piece with the right price will avail itself.
