Hey loves!!!

I hope you all had a great weekend and were able to keep cool from the blazing heat! So every year for the 4th of July weekend, Essence has their music festival. People from all walks of life spend a few days in New Orleans listening to great speakers, attending awesome concerts, eating incredible food, and a whole lot more. I have yet to attend an Essence Music Festival, but I’m thinking next year may be the year. I had to live vicariously through those I follow in Instagram and Twitter, and of course my Facebook friends. It seems like everyone really enjoyed themselves! Thank God for pictures because we can see a small snapshot of what we missed.

Vanessa Williams attended the season 3 premiere of Ru Paul’s Drag Race in this AMAZING green jumpsuit! Definitely compliments her eyes. The burgundy lip is a nice touch also. I wish she would have chosen a different shoe though. Maybe a classic black pump or maybe metallic bronze, but definitely not an awkwardly shaped tan sandal. Those are my thoughts, but how do you feel?

She should rock it or drop it?
