I hear it's suppose to rain all weekend in the DMV area, and while I prefer sunny and 70 degree weather, I'm just hoping "April showers [really] brings May flowers." Have a fantastic weekend!

BUMP OF THE WEEK: Kourtney Kardashian

Happy Wednesday!
We are officially on the "hump" of the week and I decided to spotlight one of theeeeee flyest fab-mommie's on the scene right now. Kourtney Kardashian is a super fab-mommy because she knows what works for her body, shape, size and most importantly how to be effortless. She is far from boring and has a pretty dapper team of men: Beau Scott Disick & son Mason to keep on her toes. Kourtney is due late July with a baby girl...we know she'll be just as fly as her parents and big brother, Mason! Check out the BUMP-OF-THE-WEEK courtesy of Ms. Kourtney Kardashian:

Countdown to the weekend!! Make the rest of your week GREAT <3

It was only a few month's ago when she gave birth to "the most beautiful girl in the world" according to hubby Jay-Z. Not only is she a Fab-Mommy, Actress, Singer, Beauty Icon and a RWifey but she is also a great Role Model for young women.

Sooo Coachella 2012 officially ended this past Sunday, April 22nd and my oh my was it quite the fashion ruckus among the crowd (i really loved the individual style)! Last week, I spotlighted many celebrities that made their 70s style debut at the beginning of the festival. And this week even more celebrities and spectators took the whole "boho-chic" and rocker look to a whole new level. From retro sunnies, cropped tops, short shorts, funky hats and headdresses,boho dresses and a mix of colors/prints they got in the festival spirit of Coachella. Words cannot express how inspired I'am, especially because I'm a lover of 1970s fashion. So check out the pictures below:

(R to L: Denisha, Krystle, Terrin & Yours Truly posing on the streets of DC)


Did everyone have a great weekend? I kicked off my relaxing weekend with some girlfriends last Friday post-work. We had lots of girltalk over cocktails & great food from The Park Restaurant & Lounge on 14th Street then went to see the movie "Think Like A Man" in Gallery Place Chinatown. I haven't laughed that hard in awhile and it was the perfect way to start my weekend. Have a great week people....and if you havent saw "Think Like A Man" you're definitely missing out (scored $33 milli in ticket sales over the weekend while coming in at #1)!  

RUMOR HAS IT: Betsey Johnson Gets Reality Show!

Fashion Designer, Betsey Johnson will star alongside her muse/daughter Lulu in a show entitled Betsey + Lulu on the Style Network. Lucky reports the show’s premise is that “single mother Lulu wants to launch her own fashion label and finally step out from Betsey’s shadow”. The show is scheduled to debut later this year and I'll be sure to let you know first!

SHOEGASM: Casadei Shoes Spring 2012 (VIDEO)

I'm obsessed with Casadei Spring 2012 Collection! Christian Louboutin makes some beautiful shoes but so does Cesare Casadei himself. Those bright pink heels are LOVE and those neon wedges have me clutching my little heart.

Beyoncé Gets 'Print Happy' For Spring!

Celebrity Fab-Mommy, Singer, Wife & Designer, Beyoncé seems to be so happy these days...and she's seems to be showing it off with her style! The Fab-Mommy has been spotted all over the country (literally) rocking one-of-a-kind printed blouses, dress, skirts and even has her beloved daughter, Blue Ivy Carter wearing a silk scarf on her head. Although blouses never "went out of style" per say, it seems like the bold and beautiful prints from Versace and Gucci (seen above) has stolen out Bey's heart as well as many others. I love how Beyoncé pairs her print tops with casual jeans or shorts while on vacay or just perusing the streets of NYC.  She looks very chic and most of all effortless. See more pictures of Beyoncé's very 'print happy' style below:  

Beyoncé and hubby, Jay Z were in St. Barts for their 4 year anniversary. She wore a Etro Printed Silk Paisley Blouse over her bathing suit.

The Fab-Mommy looked chic in a Thakoon Ikat print silk crepe shirt dress while taking a stroll in NYC with her baby girl Blue.

Not only does Beyoncé love her printed blouses but she isn't afraid to wear her Etro Abstract Maxi Skirt while handling her business.

STYLISH COUPLE ALERT: Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

Not sure if you've been hiding under a rock, but it's official my favorite dash doll Kim Kardashian is dating Rapper and Fashion Designer Kanye West! They have been spotted in and around NYC this past weekend and happened to really look happy together. The couple looks comfortable and fashionable of course while perusing the streets of NYC. I'm a lover of both Kim and Kanye because so I'm excited to see more of them even if it maybe a publicity stunt. Check out a few pictures of the Stylish Couple taking over the city for the weekend below:

Kim tweeted/instgram: "Money tall like Jordan"

Kim is a smitten kitten with initials "K W" on her ears! Oh she fancy.... 

The Stylish couple had dinner with the Kardashian/Jenner/Odom/Disick gang....and we hear they love Kanye already! #TherafluLovin
