Woman Crush Wednesday: Rihanna Bares it All

Hola, Spiiirits!

At the CFDA Fashion Awards on June 2nd, Rihanna bared it all in a completely sheer crystal-net floor length gown that was custom made by designer Adam Selman. Well “bared it all” may be a little too forward…she did have a flesh tone thong on that beautiful bod. Talk about shining bright like a diamond, Rih!

Rih paid homage to the Josephine Baker era in this floor length frock, which hosted 230, 000 Swarovski crystals.

Now of course Rih’s bold, nude (or at least mostly nude) expression, has brought much backlash. (Instagram even, to my knowledge, removed her page because of it, TUH!) However, I am here to say that I am in support of this fashion choice!

First of all, Rihanna looks beautiful and her body is to D-I-E for in this dress. Second, why is it that women have to be ashamed of their bodies? These bodies (male or female) are blessings from Source, so why is it we cannot honor them as such? Rihanna is a young woman in her prime finding strength in her femininity, versus the shame that is so readily taught, and I applaud her for that. (BTW this is not the first time Rih has worn something sheer in public that exposes her breasts nor that she’s been photographed topless. So I don’t understand why this time is SO much more of a big deal than the others).

Also, I am a believer in the #freethenipple movement. It is simply the gender roles set by a patriarchal society that allow for a man to freely be topless, nipple exposed, but shame a woman for the thought of the same thing. Even though the chest scientifically contains the same visible make up. While I love clothing, I just don’t think nudity should be so frowned upon. It is after all, our original form. We are taught to be ashamed of and hide our root physical form and then we wonder why we find it hard to love ourselves.

Remember, God made the naked form. Man, made clothing. That’s all I’m saying…

BUT…I’m really curious to know you guys’ opinion on Rih’s outfit and public displays of nudity as a whole. Do you agree with Rih’s #freethenipple approach or do you think she should have covered up for the awards?

Let me know!

TheFashionerrd’s Very Own : Free Spiiirit Clothing Co.

FreeSpiritFinal

Free Spiiirit Clothing Co. was began by two women, myself (Jasmine A. Brown) and Philichell Pewitt-Hemphill. Here is our story….

Once upon a time I wanted a clothing line. Most of my life I knew I wanted to be involved in fashion in some sort of way, but I also wanted to help people. Around April of 2012, I decided I was going to go for it. I didn’t know exactly how it was going to happen or what the line would embody but I knew it was going to happen. Philichell and I began to get closer as friends over this time and I began to notice that she was a wondrous creative mind, with skills in crafts and DIY. I asked her to come on board and help me with the project. Time passes and Philichell comes upon this video series called TheSpiritScience on YouTube. She passed it along to me to watch as well. Watching this series changed our lives for the better and we began to adopt many of the ideologies that were purposed in the videos. Once enlightened, we wanted to enlighten others as much as possible. “Other people need to know about this stuff!” we said. And we began to think of ways we could spread the message. It came to us, to combine the clothing line and our newfound lifestyle as a way to express ourselves and enlighten the masses. Thus, we formed an equal partnership and Free Spiiirit was formed.

As with any business, teamwork makes the dream work and we needed a team to keep pushing this dream forward. We very carefully selected the best, brightest, most talented and fashionable people in our area. In support of the idea our friends decided to come together with us to form a team…the Free Spiiirit Tribe. We honed their specific talents to fit in the places that would benefit our growth most. Together….we will bring up the world, one vibration at a time.

New Site Design: Your Thoughts?

Hello my lovelies! As many of you may have already noticed I have changed theFashionerrd site design a lot in the past few days. I liked the page before, but I felt it needed upgrading. I chose to design it as I have now in an effort to make the page a little more unisex and all-encompassing.However, I love my followers and I want to know what you all favor better. Your opinions definitely matter! So, I ask that you all take a moment to answer the poll below in relation to the changes to theFashionerrd. If you guys have more detailed observations to make, please feel free to do so in the comments.

Until Next Time!

Birthday Nails !

Hello my lovelies, I know it’s been a minute since the last time I blogged, but I’ve been uber busy (so bear with me). But guess what today is guys???? My birthday!!!! I am making 21 today and I am excited about it!!! I got my nails done and I wanted to share them with you all. I bought the pink color in a hair store for $1.18 and its called Pastel Pink. It looks like more of a “barbie pink” in my opinion, though. The ring finger color is Champagne (fitting for 21, ehh?) and I have a gold glitter with light pink hearts coating the Champagne nail. I chose a mix between a natural and stiletto shape, because I didn’t want my nails too pointy (no witch nails here!). The same pink color is on my toes. I thourougly enjoyed my super deluxe mani/pedi and I personally lovveee how my nails and toes turned out. Pictures are below, tell me what you guys think! 🙂

P.S. : There will be other birthday related post to show you guys my hair and my various birthday looks (there will be a few, SO STAY TUNED!!)

Until Next Time!

XOXO Jaz’
