Not gon' lie - not BeyHive πŸ, but when it comes to Black music, sound, fashion, and visuals; there's not many who do it like Queen B !

Yonce got us 'back outsiiidde' with Break My Soul, an uptempo dance track, which samples Robin S' Show Me Love and features Big Freedia, a New Orleans Bounce Artist.


What many thought would be a single, turned out to be a surprise album!  Literally.

Last week, Beyonce released RENAISSANCE, a Disco, Soul, House, and Funk inspired project paying homage to legendary musicians.  



Fans detected an album was coming when Bey's team removed photos from her Social Media avatars, but never guessed; RENAISSANCE merch would include an actual vinyl record!  

Mrs. Carter ain't come to play!


Let's talks about RENAISSANCE.

Not the sassy lyrics, seamless transitions, secret Drake collab, or the Milkshake sample that had Kelis spazzing off Energy (althoughwe don't entirely disagree)....  

Let's focus on the dance beats, nostalgic vibes, and iconic fashion sense incorporated in the album imagery.  

The Dresses, Cat and Bodysuits set enough thirst traps to get you a COZYFlight Booked to Bridle Path. πŸ›«




Bey's visuals feature looks from Mugler, Alaia, Schiappareli, Gucci, and more high fashion designers....


Loving the creative curations, but can we talk about this Gucci look for a sec'??

Beyonce slayed !!!  And not just the dress - the whole production set!

I don't know where Miss Sasha Fierce took this photo, but the background reminds me of the lounges my Grandmother and Great Aunts used to work at in 1970's, Brooklyn, NY.  Clubs like the Bamboo Lounge and the modern day Black Flamingo.

Heres' a photo from our Lewis/Jamison/Clark family album.

From grooving to Cheryl Lynn, Ralph MacDonald, and Donna Summers, to thrusting wit' Prince and voguing with RuPaul, WE been outside! πŸ˜„


Clears throat * getting back to the fashion, I watched the Gucci Love Parade live when the retro-inspired collection premiered, last November on Hollywood Boulevard's Walk of Fame, and immediately knew the girls were gonna eat it up.  

Alessandro Michele, Gucci's Creative Director; gave CBS 60 Minutes an inside look at the inspirations for his designs, and RENAISSANCE fits right in!

A F--- it, it's Friday, era....  Careless, fun and free!  


Beyonce wears custom Alaia Catsuit 

Don't this fit look like the dress my Grandma flexed in above? ↑ πŸ˜‰


Not necessarily in that order, but the  playlist'll get you up out your seat!  


It's giving visions of Gucci Sunglasses and Versace Shades ....

...  Clogs and Platform Shoes!  

Yep! Platform Shoes - suede and velvet.... Coincidently, I watched Kelly Ripa's new show Generation Gap 'All About That Booty' S1 E2 last month and peeped Ripa, wearing some bad  Velvet Peep-Toe Platform Sandals!  

Come to find out - they're Christian Louboutin!


....  Sold out now!  But catch these Louboutin Booties below....  
Or the chic Dolce & Gabbanas, we found in Neiman Marcus!







We saw these JW Anderson Sandals in Neimans too, and nearly lost it....




Can't go retro without calfskin and fur!  

If I could rock these Blue Long Hair Calf Skin Marni Fussbett Clogs, with that Bethany Cordwell Bodysuit , my Summer would be complete!  

It's giving DIVA!

Shiiii, if I got a pair of  JENNIFER LE's heels, I'd be a set for the year, honey....  
Mary J, Ashanti and Kelly Rowland all wear JENNIFER LE shoes!
