*sings in falsetto*
“ICE…..I.C.E. feels so… nice. …”

That’s my jam!! lol I was scrolling through my Instagram (@leopardkissez) to see Ms.Kelly was serving up something fierce on The View today. Click here for a recap. She also did a performance with Big Boi of Outkast. Not only does she have remarkable talent but she always looks so well put together. She can rock any hairstyle from her short coif during her Destiny’s Child days to big voluminous ‘natural’ curls to long flowing tresses. Her new album Year of the Woman is due out early next year. She opened up about her new album during an interview with Sister2Sister Magazine. Kelly is on top of the world these days with her hit single ICE, and I wish her much more success in the New Year! 🙂

Thrift Crawl with FashDet: Recap!!!

Ok I apologize for being tardy for the party, I’m just now posting the recap for the  Thrift Crawl with FashDet this past Saturday! I was so looking forward to this! Everyone met at Caribou Coffee of Royal Oak. I was able to sip a tasty smoothie and chat with the founders of FashDet before the rest of the guest arrived. I would like to say Inez and Erika are the sweetest ladies you could ever meet! I felt like I’ve known them forever!

 

Shortly after, a few more guest arrived. We all snapped pics and tweeted about the excitement of thrifting! First stop was Paris Antiques. There I purchased a really cool owl necklace. Afterwards we shimmied next door to the Salvation Army. They had some nice things there. I got a skirt by J.Crew. Then we fought the wind, it was vicious, and headed to Chocolate Shop Vintage. This is where the madness begins! Most items were marked $5. I purchased a sweater,dress,and blouse! Last on the roster was Lost and Found Vintage. Their collection was awesome! I got an 80’s peplum dress from here.

 

I had a blast, and I’m looking forward to more meetups! Below you’ll find a list of all the attendees and their blogs. Pics can be found >>>here<<< on my facebook page!  

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! / Hair Talk

I haven’t OFFICIALLY said Happy New Year to all my readers, shame on me! Well Happy New Year Ladies and Gents!!!! We have made it to another year! Whoo-hoo! New Years Resolutions anyone???

Since it’s the start of a new year it’s time for a length check! So stay tuned for pics and my new regimen. I like to update my products on a monthly basis. That gives me ample amount of time to trial new products to judge if it’s winner-winner chicken dinner lol I may finish a product and need to rotate in something else. So stayed tuned for that as well.

I have some new followers here and on Twitter! yaaaay me!!! Thanks so much for the support!!! I also linkd up with other Detroit Fashion Bloggers >>>>>check the button in the sidebar! So that’s pretty cool 🙂 Check out the website for other great bloggers!

Ok folks that about does it. I’m excited for new things happening here at LeopardKissez!!!

Kerry Washington – Style Icon

I have always been a huge fan of Kerry Washington, from her early days in the movie Save the Last Dance. Her neatly coiffed natural curls were to die for!!! Not only is she a talented actress, but she is always dressed to the nine! With her trademark coveted high cheekbones, her makeup is always flawless. Never a victim of a fashion disaster (at least in my book). Kerry is the epitome of class and elegance! That’s why I chose her as my Style Icon! With such effortless beauty, no wonder she’s one of Hollywood premiere celebs!

Glamour.com listed her as the Top 40 Best Dressed of 2011, and Essence.com best dressed of December 2011.She has countless recognition for her keen sense of style.  Not only is she a fashion vixen, but she is also an advocate for  Americans for the Arts along with other organizations. For latest updates and photos check out her website. KerryWashington.com!

From time to time I’ll feature my choice for Style Icon that represents the best fashion sense !
