Need Some Sick Apparel? Occhio Black Has It All…

IMG_2654

Us fashion crooners are always looking for a new hot exclusive line to welcome to our closets. With summer approaching, we all want to be fresh from head to toe. With apparel lines on a major rise, our closets are looking for some attention from different clothing lines. It seems as though underground lines are the “new thing”, Me personally I love rocking apparel, a fly t-shirt or hoodie with some sneakers are always a go to for me when I want to dress it down, but still be one the best dressed in the room while not wearing the normal sexy dress and heels. Us keyholders here at Society Keeper are always on the look out for the hottest trends as well as the hottest up and coming designers.

IMG_2656IMG_2655We recently came across the Atlanta based clothing line, Occhio Black. With the name meaning “The Black Eye of Success”, it gives a fresh, refined, but urban appeal. Looking through the various pieces, this line is definitely worth mentioning, or spending money on rather. The line was founded in 2011 in Savannah, GA by Brooklyn native Eric Poole who now resides in Atlanta, GA. According to Mr. Poole he had been selling clothes his whole life starting with his mother owning a store. It all started with $60, some tees from Walmart, and paint; things flourished from there. Sounds like a humble beginning doesn’t it? The line began when Eric attended Savannah State University in Savannah. It was then he started to sell his clothing out of own home and the line was instant hot commodity among the campus which later became relevant in the music and fashion.

IMG_2659After being around for a few years now, the line carries some notoriety. With stars like Teyana Taylor wearing the apparel, and appearances on notable television shows such as MTV’s Black Ink, Occhio Black is definitely a line to look out for. It reminds us of the likes of other apparel lines on online boutiques such as Karmaloop. However, this line offers something different, it is fresh and cutting edge along with it’s nostalgic logo of a bleeding eye. The CEO, Eric Poole, describes the line as “Eclectic, different, street…”. ECLECTIC! The perfect adjective to describe this brand. We can’t wait to see what more this brand has to offer! We’re absolutely confident the next collection from this brand will blow us away!

It’s #FashionFriday! Met Gala 2016: Make A Statement!…Balmain Sure Did!

museum-nyc-exterior-night

As you all know, last Monday was fashion”s biggest night, THE MET GALA! All of us lovers of fashion look forward to this very night to see all of the leading-edge statement ensembles the most notorious clothing designers used their creative minds to stitch together. This year’s theme was “Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology”. The focus was on handmade couture and machine made fashion. When we first heard about this theme, us “keyholders” here at Society Keeper were absolutely excited. This meant endless detailing, colors, prints, fabric, and the list goes on! If you’re a fashion crooner like myself you know exactly what I mean. On this lovely evening we were given the pleasure of seeing the amazing works of art that graced the red carpet under the stars of New York City at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute. Of all of the incredible pieces from top designers, there was one designer who stood out the most. It was no surprise this designer was a stand out. It was none other than one of my absolute favorites, BALMAIN! The dresses that graced the red carpet from this line were astounding! Nothing but red carpet perfection! All of the detailing, beading, cut out details and so much more were to DIE for! Creative Director Olivier Rousteig really showed us that Balmain is the red carpet royalty. Check out these ravishing red carpet numbers from the designer!

Cindy Crawford looks AMAZING in this cold shouldered, long sleeved, form fitting, silver number!

Jordan Dunn MEt Gala 2016

Jordan Dunn did this Balmain dress very good justice! With cut out mesh detailing and gold fabric adds edge, but still keeps the class of the dress constant with the longs sleeves and high neckline. Kudos!

hbz-met-joan-smalls

Joan Smalls is definitely wearing this Balmain piece. The cut out detailing, the thigh high slit, and the bustier effect on the dress give her the right amount of sex appeal for this night of top notch fashion on the red carpet!

hbz-met-kylie-jenner

Kylie Jenner is also making a huge fashion statement with this Balmain number. It’s obvious this dress is stunning with all of intricate beading and detailing on the dress. This cut out sides also adds just the right amount of sex appeal while not taking away from the “wow factors” of the dress.

hbz-met-alessandra-ambrosio

Remember the Balmain dress Alessandra Ambrosio wore at the Vanity Fair Oscar’s After Party? Flawless right? Well, the supermodel has done it again. This is actually our favorite look from the designer for the star studded night. The crochet detailing and the form fitting silhouette compliments her ridiculously amazing body and her taste in fashion![slide id="Slider_id"]

Why Downsizing Your Life is an Upside

Good afternoon readers! As you may have read in some of my previous posts, I am undergoing a major downsize at home. There are many reasons why I am doing this. My efforts will be doubling tonight, and until it’s complete as I’m watching mother nature ravage Fort McMurray, Alberta with a severe wildfire. […]

I had to sure this article with our readers, simply because downsizing can save your life. Internally we are effected by the things that we add to our lives that we think we need but don’t. Downsizing is just another way of saying “declutter your life” or “getting organized”. It’s time to let go…let it go. As my spiritual mentor would say: “if it isn’t beautiful, useful or you can’t give it away…throw it out!” Downsizing can set you on the path to your happiness.

What Are Your Financial Health Stats?

Did you know that business, finance & health have one thing in common…you guessed it YOU!!! Your overall health IS EXTREMELY important when it comes to business and finance. The lifestyle of an entrepreneur is filled with ups and downs, highs and lows. To my business owners as we embark upon this entrepreneurial journey, consciously making an effort to manage business and finances better. I couldn’t help but wonder how many of us truly understand that in order to maintain a healthy business and financial life we must ensure that we are first mentally and physically healthy.

Ask yourself this question…are you taking care of your overall health? Are you ignoring that nagging pain? Have you constantly been forgetting to schedule those important doctors appointments. When was the last time you made an appointment to see your internal medicine doctor and obtain a complete physical?

Think About It Thursday: CHALLENGE!!

thinking

Hello my beautiful KINGS and QUEENS! It’s Think About It Thursday! I want you to stop what you’re doing right now and pay close attention to what I am about to say. It is extremely imperative that we think on levels of strengthening our communities, supporting our businesses and creating generational wealth. Today I want you to pledge that you will make a conscious effort to think on these levels on a daily basis. We must walk in confidence knowing that we are capable of accomplishing these things. Every Thursday I am going to challenge you to think outside of the box which in essence will hopefully help us rebuild our community. The challenges will be broken down into two categories: Business and Finance. I want you to always remember that as I am challenging you I am challenging myself. We are all in this together. NOW LET THE FUN BEGIN!

Business Challenge:

If you have been thinking about starting a business, had a business that you gave up on, or currently own a business and need a little push to get your business to the next level. This week I challenge you to schedule some time out of your busy schedule to sit down and do a little mind mapping. Put the vision on paper in great detail. For those of you that are not sure what mind mapping is…google it…not trying to be rude just want you to put forth a greater effort in being passionate about learning something new daily.

Finance Challenge:

This challenge is for my KINGS and QUEENS who think it is beyond impossible for them to save money. This week I challenge you to take a look around your house for an empty container, shoe box, anything! Now, at the end of each day I want you to take all the change you have collected throughout the day and put it in that container. Once you have gotten comfortable with doing this on a consistent basis I want you to start throwing your change and one dollar bills in the container and so on and so forth. You will be surprised at how much you start to accumulate. OH, and please me say this DO NOT I repeat DO NOT remove any of the money that you place into that container. I have faith in you that you have the will power to put forth a conscious effort to saving your money!

Baby steps KINGS and QUEENS…baby steps!

Until we meet again next Thursday make every day a great day on purpose!!!!

Kimisha J.
