EoE Creative Accessorizing Challenge

It's only the second week of Miss Essence of Ebony and I already feel whipped. This challenge required us to take a simple mesh dress created by Mad Diva and make it into our own style. After spending sleepless hours tearing through my inventory and shopping around for accessories, I came up with a creation that truly represented who I am.

EoE Style Challenge - 70's Fashion Icons

Yesterday marked the beginning of the Miss Essence of Ebony pageant, and man was I nervous! The day started out rough with a laggy sim and a show delay but eventually 17 finalists were able to present themselves for the first time in public. Our challenge was to emulated a 70's fashion icon, and I chose the first black model to grace the cover of Vogue in 1974, Beverly Johnson. I really identified with her effervescent spirit and sophisticated fashion sense. I was inspired by her Jackie O-influenced style and the colors representing my country, Congo. Each week the top three styles are chosen, and while mine wasn't up there, I do want to give a special congrats to my friend and fellow contestant Miss Togo Ngozi Faith for being the favorite of the day! She absolutely rocked her outfit inspired by Diana Ross from Mahogany. To see the other contestant looks, check out http://essenceofebony.wordpress.com/.

After Party

I'm a girl who just LOVES to party, which is exactly what I did New Year's Eve 2011. Alas the new year will not contain one of my favorite shopping pastimes, Fifty Linden Friday. The final hurrah was everything and more, with an epic list of top designers selling quality items for a deep discount. I think the final list put a couple of Greatest Love Group admins out of commission since they went silent after about 2 hours of shopping. They're such lightweights (kidding, luv ya). Tres blah really went all out on this glittery disco dress which was just perfect for the New Year's parties I attended. When everything was said and done, I finally took myself to bed at 8 in the morning after cleaning up the festive mess in the kitchen. All in all, 2011 ended on a splashtastic note, and I can't wait to see what 2012 has in store!
