Friday's Fabulous Flick

This week’s flick is a nod to the gentlemen!

Richard Fredrick (pictured left is St. Lucia’s Minister of Environmental Affairs) and Stephenson King (St. Lucia’s Prime Minister) are super sharp representing their country at the Lingerie New York event. The event was sponsored by Freedom Bay St. Lucia and benefited the Seven Bar Foundation. It was held at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.

St. Lucia is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL island. If you haven't been there, I encourage you to check it out!

Can I get an Amen somebody?!
So start up your 60-Day Plan NOW! The time is right to dive back into to “the lab” to  brush up on some soft skills that will make you a social superstar! Okay, I know you’re probably thinking, “How? And with what funds?

Klode and Regine M. Roumain (right), Executive Director of the Haitian Cultural Exchange, Inc. were photographed attending “Saving Grace: A Celebration of Haitian Art” at Affirmation Arts in New York City.

I featured the two flicks above because simplicity is key good people for this season. Notice how gaudiness appears to be out and clean sharp lines with quality fabrics is in. All of three of these ladies look wonderful while out and about!
