merry christmas

Merry Christmas to you and your family! We wish you nothing but the best this holiday day season. Enjoy this time with your family and friends. It is not about the presents that you receive, but about the memories you create with the people you love. So keep CHRIST in CHRISTmas and remember that Jesus is reason for the season. May this day, and the days to come, be filled with love, peace and joy.

Hey dolls and gents!

 As the blog continues to grow I want to make sure that I give you all what you love and that is the latest on fashion, beauty and entertainment and keep you up to date with what’s new with HGB. Because the blog/brand is growing and I have a full-time job I haven’t been able to post as often as I did before. So when my homeboy Mush, the designer of Fly Credentials, hit me up about a friend of his who wants to get in to blogging I was excited. I’ve known Mush since my college years so I trust his judgment.

I would like to introduce the newest member of the HGB Team, Camilla. With the exchange of a few emails and a meetup at Barnes & Noble we immediately clicked. She shared the same ideals and she understood where I wanted to take this brand.

Camilla has been hard at work! She’s been delivering great posts on Spring Hair Styles, Spring Trends, and much more.

So welcome Camilla to HGB!

Once again, Thank you all for your support!

Ok I believe this is my first set that I have created for a guy. My forte is dressing women, but I am giving the guys a little attention. I have been getting requests from a lot of my male friends to do more for them on the blog. I played it safe with this look but let me find my groove fellas. 🙂

So the inspiration behind this look was really the Sebago Spinnaker Boat Shoe which retails for $80. Boat shoes are essential for men for the summer. What are you going to wear on your feet if you get invited to a yacht party…some Jordan’s?…I don’t think so. There is always a time and a place for the Cool Grey’s or Tru Blues, but I think a boat shoe on a yacht is more fitting.

Boat shoes can be dressed up or dressed down. The look above is very casual.  You have a plain v-neck t-shirt, casual trousers, a nice watch, belt, and rosary beads. The boat shoes and aviators pull it all together for a great casual yet stylish look.

I was expecting to see some amazing looks this weekend from our favorite fashionistas but there weren’t many. Maybe I just wasn’t looking the right place…who know. I did however find a few photos that I did get some inspiration from. Check out Kelly Rowland, Tika Sumpter, and Selita Ebanks.

  • I just love everything about Kelly’s looks now. Whoever is doing the styling *kudos* Keep up the good work. What I love about her look are the boots. The perfect pop of color for a classic look
  • Tika Sumpter is definitely headed to the top of my fashion list. I love the simplicity of this floral print dress. Perfect for summer.
  • Selita didn’t wow me, but I love the red pumps and the hair. The dress could have been in a different color but for the lack of pictures of other celebs, she made it to this edition of Style Files on the strength of her shoes.
