Valerie, A World Class Belly Dancer

20130822_213413x

Valerie teaching me a few moves

New York City is known for many things but I don’t think many people can boost of having met one of the world’s best. I was lucky to find myself at Casa La Femme restaurant in New York City during a birthday celebration where Valerie Levine had us all gazing with our mouths on the floor. She’s definitely not your everyday performer. This talented lady is so well rounded in all types of dance ranging from Belly Dancing to Ballroom. Valerie skillfully combined them during her belly dancing routine at the restaurant. For instance, when was the last time you saw a belly dancer do a full split while balancing a tray of burning candles on her stomach? It’s a walk in the park for Valerie!

Be sure to check her out at Valerinadance.com. You won’t regret it. She was kind enough to teach me a few moves too! Très bien Valerie!

See some of the pictures I captured on my cell phone below.

Fashion: Neons & Whites

20130822_221812xI believe dark skin people (like me) pull off bold and “loud” colors better than any other type of skin tone. So if you’re dark skin don’t be afraid to use your body as a perfect color palette to show your bright wardrobe. I particularly like neons, especially for a night out. What better way to be seen! It worked perfectly well with my Dior mini gold saddle bag. 🙂

Fashion: Floral Impression

20130821_111927xSpring in the summer, but why not. Many designers are showing floral frocks for fall season but retail giants like Zara rushed to the “gate” ahead of them and I didn’t waste anytime in grabbing a set. Sold as separates (jacket & pant) but I decided to cut mine into a pair of shots! I hope you like the look as much as I do. I think it works. 🙂

Fashion: Demure In A Sundress

20130820_120500x copyA perfect day to burst out the sunny “good girl” dress. I acquired the Escada leopard & floral print dress and matching scarf (secured in place with a vintage pin around my face) a few years ago and just now getting around to wearing the set with a pair of Dior slides and cowhide leather Gucci bag I bought sometime ago as well. Well made products never goes out of style as they say. Good investment to say the least.

Sorry guys, just not a big fan of makeup. 😉

Oprah Winfrey Turned Away At A Boutique!

article-2389798-1B382B7A000005DC-310_634x798

Oprah wanted to see the orange crocodile skin “Jennifer” bag the store owner Trudie Goetz is holding in the picture.

The one and only Oprah Winfrey was given the Pretty Woman “It’s too expensive” treatment in Zurich recently while in Switzerland for Tina Turner’s wedding. Who in their right mind would turn away a mogul billionaire from looking at a $38,000 Tom Ford “Jennifer” bag? Apparently one dumb numb skull dim wit sales clerk in Zurich did the honors! Mind you, it won’t be the first time the media mogul experienced such a treatment. Who could forget the infamous Hermes shopping experience where she was turned away! Some people need to be put away for good for redundancy! This is 2013, wake up! Click here to read the store owner’s apology to Oprah. What a shame! BIG MISTAKE!

You definitely don’t want to miss watching Oprah Winfrey’s video interview below! WOW!
