Firmoo Eyewear

Over the summer I received eyewear from Firmoo and finally got the chance to wear them out this weekend. I've become super obsessed with Beyonce's round framed sunnies but refused to pay the price tag so I opted for a more economic brand that was still fashionable and still gave me a feel for how round frames would look on me. I'm pleasantly surprised how well they fit me versus the traditional cat-eye frames. Who is Firmoo? They are ( the world's most popular online eyeglasses store.

Solange Dishes on Natural Hair & Fashion to Lurve Magazine


Solange tells it all the Lurve Magazine in their most recent issue. I've always admired Solange's honesty and "tell it how it is" personality. Below are photo's from the interview as well some quotes about her natural hair-do and of course her fashion sense!
On Natural Hair:
"I’m actually really trying to navigate my feelings on the entire hair issue and it’s tough doing that publicly." - Solange
After a twitter rant a few months ago about her natural tresses being "un-kept" she says, "At that point I thought to myself, ‘This is really crazy. That these people know more about my hair than the human that even carries it!’ I went to my Twitter and sort of impulsively expressed that. I don’t regret it one bit, but sometimes trying to put how you feel in an one-hundred forty character structure is not really successful."
Former Carol's Daughter spokesperson (Solange ended her partnership) says that she was, "constantly fighting for the right message to be heard. The message that the way we wear our hair is a personal choice, there’s no right or wrong way."

On Fashion:
When asked about fashion she says, "never really been that interested in fashion."
She also says, "Once I really defined my expectations in terms of how to navigate through the fashion world without getting myself too invested, I’ve had a hell of a lot of fun."

We hear Solange is gearing up to release her 3rd album, can't wait to hear what she's been working on!
