Kimbretta – ” My Fashion”

Fashion 

Woo-Hoo!  I love fashion ‼️I believe fashion includes not only clothes and shoes, but also hair, nails and facial grooming.

“I have so many styles, I am a group”.

Like, I don’t have one way of dressing or one style I wear in my hair; me personally, I like to switch it up!  And I also tend to dress how I’m feeling at the time….so if it’s a chill, bum mood kind of day, I honor that sh!t by fully committing-Ball Cap over un-styled hair, sweats, old ratty tee shirt and flip flops. When I’m feeling bright and chipper, or cool and rhythmic, I typically honor those vibes with flowy maxi dress or skirt.  Jeans!  Jeans can be rocked any day and anytime, for any mood, dressed up or down.  MmmmKay!  I also love statement pieces;  the kind of clothing items that are memorable and unique.

I feel sexy no matter what I have on, so I don’t have a go to style for that.  You know what though, the one style that really makes me beam with pride and feel absolutely untouchable…is when I’m in Office Professional attire-That is by far my FavoriteBut the way this FL heat is set up, I ain’t just jumping into no slacks & blazers-all willy nilly…I don’t care how much I love it. 

Fashion is also my most favorite area in life to “push the envelope” or “break the rules”….by like not being so matchy-matchy or mixing opposite prints, like stripes and polka dots.  I love the edge of doing that.  However, LADIES, when it come to undergarments there are Rules that should NOT be broken.  HUGE pet peeve 👀to see a lady in a nice ensemble and then she passes and you see she has on the wrong underwear.  #EpicFail #FormerLingerieStoreEmployee

WILLIE VIVERETTE RELEASES VIVERETTE TIES

This past Sunday the newest entrepreneur from Indianapolis, Indiana released his anticipated line of bowties to the public. WILLIE VIVERETTE threw his designer hat into the fashion realm circle with his line of VIVERETTE TIES and to celebrate, he took over the Bella Marcia Event Center and invited every dream chaser in the city to not only celebrate his achievement, but to jumpstart their respective journey into entrepreneurship.

Viverette Ties Release Party Flyer

I spoke with Willie about his line and how he got the inspiration to create this unique line of bowties. Being a fashion connessuer, Willie got the idea while preparing to attend an event. “One day I was getting ready for this party that A Few Good Gentlemen we’re doing when I wanted this specific type of tie. I searched and searched and couldn’t find anything. A little voice in my head said “ Create it!”. I started the process and here we are now.”

Viverette Ties Logo

Willie also shared how his upbringing played a role in his decision to create Viverette Ties. “I grew up with no mom, no dad, no sisters or brothers, so my resources were limited. In my younger years, I’ve never really had anything to call my own or nothing that I felt like I could be proud of. When I use to go school, people would crack jokes on me because my clothes were old and outdated.” His love for fashion grew into a personal mission to be the freshest person in the world.

Willie Viverette

The name Viverette is not only his last name but is also French. “I’ve always been told that I have a unique last name but I never really entertained the thought of actually having something unique enough to carry the name. Once I started designing my bow ties, I then knew that this was a perfect opportunity to brand me and my son’s legacy for future generations to come.” The ties are made from a premium velvet and includes a lapel pin, cuff links and a pocket square.

I asked Willie what will make Viverette Ties stand out from the competition. The process and production are just a few of the selling points he spoke on. “Viverette separates its self by a number of reasons. One being the fabric quality that we use. We choose from over 75 different fabrics which means that we are hands-on with the designs. There are a lot of other people and companies that hire some one to do the choosing and I feel like that takes away from the innovation of the overall brand.”

Midwest Fashion Week (Photo Cred. Pride Photography L. White)

With his line already making huge noise at Midwest Fashion Week, I asked Willie about his future plans with Viverette Ties. Without hesitation he replied, “My plan for Viverette Ties is world domination! I don’t want anyone wearing anymore neck ties. Those are a thing of the past!” One of his visions was seeing his line featured overseas and this month, he will see another vision come to life as Viverette Ties will be featured during Midwest Fashion Week in Paris, France next month.

Shop with them at www.Hairfeenz.com

Had some questions for the Ceo Tamika V.

What made you want to be apart of the hair business?

Over the years I have spent a lot of money on hair extensions.  Being a female who suffers from Alopecia I have always been self-conscious of my hair.  After realizing how much money I had to spend to cover up my thinning hair, I decided I wanted to help others like me and those who really invest in their hair by being able to offer high grade quality human extensions at an affordable price.

How long did it take for you to get your brand off the ground?

I started my brand in 2015 and over the years I have worked hard at being able to provide the very best quality of 100% Human Extensions.  I tried many vendors before finding the vendors I work with for my product.  Being a person who is so familiar with extensions, I wanted to sample the different vendors myself to determine if the quality of the product was good.  It took a lot of time and money, but I am proud to say I have worked with the same vendors for the last 3 years.

Where did the name hairfeenz come from?

When I decided to launch a website, I wanted to get my best friend on board as a business partner.  He is a male so he really had no knowledge of hair extensions.  His neighborhood name is feen so when I came at him like “hey bestie we can call the business hairfeenz” He got super excited and jumped on board that same day.  Plus think about it… its really catchy LOL

Do you guys specialize in man pieces?

Unfortunately, we have not branched out to the men units yet, but I am, very excited about being able to offer male unites in the near future.

What do you feel about competition?

There is plenty of competition in the hair game and what I tell people is research pricing and read reviews to help determine the best products.  I feel we need competitors, so we can show the world what makes us different from others.

There are many hair vendors in the game, so I want to know why should they shop with Hairfeenz?

I’m passionate about hair because it has become such a big part of my life even before the business.  I’m the type of person who doesn’t feel at my best when my hair isn’t done.  I refuse to offer hair that I wouldn’t wear myself and I only wear the best of the best.  I feel the biggest competitor I face are stylist who also sell hair.  These stylists are able to install the hair and give you the overall look and that great, but I also tell people be mindful because a good stylist can make some terrible hair look great.  Its what they are trained to do.  I am not a stylist so what I share about my experiences with my brand and our quality is straight from the horse’s mouth.  I give it to you straight no chaser LOL.  Side note we are also one of the only sites to offer 6 different strands of hair (Brazilian, Filipino, Peruvian, Indian, Mongolian and Malaysian)

If you can have a celebrity to be the face of Hairfeenz who would it be?

OMG it would be my BFF Beyonce.  Ok fine she’s my BFF in my head, but I feel her beauty, class and grace mirrors what I see for my brand.  Hairfeenz is about quality and investing in yourself and I feel Beyonce has become an ICON not only for her talent but for her reputation of being an amazing human being.

What do you have coming up?

Well the relaunch of the site happened a few months ago and I just plan to work really hard on marketing.  We will possibly participate in some vendor events this summer and I will keep that info updated on social media.

Describe being the owner of Hairfeenz?

Its amazing to create a brand and it feels even better to nurture it.  I feel we have come a long way but I know we have a long way to go so I will say it is very exciting.

Where can they find you on social media?

Summer Pop: Glow All Season Long With These Highlighters

My favorite makeup look this summer has been very natural.

With the summer heat, sweat dripping down my face, and my pores more susceptible to being clogged, I’ve shied away from heavy products.

Thick day creams; I’m good on it.
Full coverage foundations; I think not!

Honestly most days, I just like a little mascara, some lip gloss, and a quick swipe of one of my favorite highlighters. It gives you the perfect “I’m confidently glowing in this sun and my skin poppin’ look” and spares you skin from unwanted breakouts.

So, after cleaning out my makeup and recognizing the slew of highlighters I own, I got the idea to pass along some of the best I’ve used to date for you all to add a bit to your collection.

 

Nars Illuminator (Orgasm)

COST: $30

I don’t have these highlighters in any specific order, but I think this subconsciously came first cause it was one of the first liquid highlighters I started using.

It’s so smooth, perfectly pigmented, and has an amazing smell. (Odd pro, but it really does smell like citrus.) My favorite part about this product is that you can layers it a bit. With a tiny dab, you can add a sheer illuminance to your skin, or use a thicker layer for a more noticeable pop!

 

 

 

Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter (Liquid Champagne)

COST: $9

So clearly there is a big difference in cost here. Mainly due to the fact that NARS is a high-end brand and even their smallest travel sized items are on the pricey side.

Yet, fun fact, Make Up Revolution is actually completely cruelty-free and most of their products are vegan! (This highlighter falls under that category, pretty cool right?!)

It comes with a cute dropper and is great not only as a highlighter but also as an additive to your foundation. I like mixing my foundation, a bit of Clinique’s Moisture Surge Moisturizer, and this together to create a tinted moisturizer with an added glow!

 

ColorFX Glitter Drops (Aurora)

COST: $44

This highlighter also comes with a dropper as an applicator and for good reason. Out of all of these highlights, this is hands down the most pigmented.

That can be a blessing and a curse. If used properly, you will look like a blossoming unicorn from the fairy forest, get too glitter happy and you will look like that unicorn’s sparkling poop walking around on two feet.

Again, you can use this as a highlight, an addition to your foundation, or even use it as a cute pop to your eyeshadow!

This product is also cruelty-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, fragrance-free, and vegan!

 

Milk Highlighter (Everyday Dewy Highlighter)

COST: $24

Vegan. Smooth. Moisturizing. Multi-use.

This product is good for any skin type and its ingredient list explains why it smells so yummy! Mango butter, coconut oil, avocado oil and other cruelty-free products were blended up for this light reflecting concoction.

You can use one easy swipe and add a subtle glow or layer it up for a more intense look.

This is the only highlighter on the list that isn’t liquid, so if you prefer an easy stick applicator, this is for you. Don’t forget what’s inside though, it emulsifies easily and blends well.

 

Out of all four, I would say:
-Milk is perfect for every day as advertised and looks great even on a fresh face with no other makeup.

-Revolution is a wonderful choice and being that it’s $9, it is a great deal. If you are looking for a cheap version of NARS grab this one, or even the liquid highlighter from NYX.

-NARS is a boujee brand people love so if you can afford it, get it. It is a wonderful quality and leaves behind a sheer luminance you will love.

-ColorFX the priciest, yet the product that will last the longest. I was nervous to purchase this, but even 2 months into using it I am not even halfway through. A little goes a long way.

I hope you guys glow all summer long, enjoy these suggestions, and comment below what your favorite highlighter is!

Make sure to check out my post from last week on my favorite Aveda products for the summer!
