An Interview with a Baltimore’s Emerging Accessories Designer Award Nominee

I’ve published my first article for my News Reporting class.

I wrote about Jessica Dove, who I met through Facebook. She has her own accessories (and bikini and crop top) business called Made With Love By JDove.

A fashion blogger nominated her for Baltimore’s Emerging Accessories Designer contest, which is incredible!

Jessica was sweet, funny, and charming. Not to mention, her stuff is ADORABLE. You can find her on Facebook, Instagram, or Etsy.

In honor of Oscars weekend, I’m posting my top four fashion moments from the red carpet. My favorite show on E!, Fashion Police (okay, maybe not my favorite…I do keep with the Kardashians thanks to my DVR), does it much better than I, but why not try!Image

The red dress with the cape can only work for a classy, gorgeous gal, and that she is. The green!? Oh man, she knocked it out of the park. Perfect! Her makeup for the SAG awards is also flawless- just a little bit of color to match the dress but otherwise minimal. It doesn’t get better than these two looks. She Imagegraced the red carpet for her first hit movie and proved that we not only want more Lupita on-screen, we also want more Lupita on the carpet! (Plus, her SAG acceptance speech? “Well, I don’t know him personally…” Obsessed!) I cannot WAIT to see what she wears to the Oscars, because the woman is an icon. It’s her first movie role and red carpet season and the woman is an icon.

Numero dos: My girl Katy. I’m outwardly obsessed with Katy Perry. My grandma thought I legitimately knew her because of how I talked about her at Thanksgiving. (I refer to her as “Katy,” because we’re on a first name basis like that.) Image Continue reading
