JP's 3

Question 1: What's your go-to mantra in life?

LittleMixico: My go-to mantra is “Pray, hustle, repeat”. I’m a Christian, I believe my faith has gotten me where I am today. You should always hustle and go after what you want, and repeat that mentality always.

Question 2: I understand it was your first time in NYC & you went for NYFW, how was your experience? Also, who was in your opinion the best dressed in NYFW?

LittleMixico: New York City is amazing, New Yorker’s know how to dress, and it inspired me to dress better, be better and do better. The highlight of my trip was when I saw one of my favorite chefs, Wylie Dufresne at a donut shop and he waved at me! There were two people who I felt was best dressed, Sazan Hendrix and Angelica Blick. Sazan has stuck with her style beautifully while she’s pregnant. Angelica has a similar style like myself, her cool street looks during NYFW were gorgeous.

Question 3: I consider you a skincare/make-up maven, tell us about your routine & any new products that you've fallen in love with?

LittleMixico: My routine is short, less the better, I love doing the vampire facial from Novopelle Med Spa. The vampire facial helps with acne-scarring, preventing wrinkles and build collagen. I do love to get regular facials and use a cleanser daily. As far as new products, you should check out Clean and Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment. The product helps make the spot go away if you pop a pimple, plus it’s affordable.

Question 1: I see on your Instagram, you love PRINTS! What is it about prints that draws you to wear it?

Amelia_Blake: Prints are the best way to add pizzazz to a simple garment. I also love mixing prints like stripes with polka dots, it’s a sure way to make a statement.

Question 2: How does it feel to be featured on Bravo's Real Housewives of Dallas this season & work for housewife, D'Andra Simmons?

Amelia_Blake: It’s fun, weird and nerve wracking seeing yourself on TV because I didn’t sign up, it just came with the territory of working for D’Andra Simmons. My work responsibility has increased with D’Andra traveling doing press for BravoTV.

Question 3: Which one do you love the most, Fashion or DYI?

Amelia_Blake: I’ve been designing fashion, since I was 14 years old. I remember when I was younger I would create handbags and sell them in my neighborhood market. I love thinking of new ideas in my head and be able to literally translate it to real life.

Question 1: What is it about photography that you love so much?

Blink_300m_photography: I love the fact that it creates a vulnerability regardless if it’s a person, place or thing. The ability to capture a moment and freeze it in time is absolutely priceless.

Question 2: How did it feel being on the other side of the camera?

Blink_300m_photography: Sometimes it can be challenging because it allows people to see me. It’s almost like I have to create a character, so I’m able to stand in front of a camera. I guess you can call it acting.

Question 3: Name a famous person you would want to photograph?

Blink_300m_photography: I would pick Rihanna, she has this mysterious aura about her. She’s unique (she’s not like any other music artist out there today). She takes risk and she knows how to evolve.

Today, I'm collaborating with my favorite client, Kimberly Dobbs, to ask her JP's 3, photograph her & discuss why her outfit makes a fashment.

JP's 3

Question 1: On your Instagram bio info, you call yourself an "Handbag Addict". What is your favorite handbag in your collection?

KimberlyDobbs: I’m going to have to go with my Chanel flap bag. It’s soft, roomy and it’s the perfect balance for everyday usage. I love it!

Question 2: Is there any advice you would give potential entrepreneurs who are thinking about starting their own business like you did?

KimberlyDobbs: I know it’s cliche to say, but ‘Find something you love to do and be excited about doing it’. That was the sole reason why I decided to start a design business, I wanted to bring my glamorous touch to my clients. Also, educate yourself; I’m self taught, learning is fundamental to allow your business to flourish.

Question 3: What is it about fashion you most love & discuss why your outfit makes a fashment?

KimberlyDobbs: I love how fashion makes me feel, it’s a way to present yourself to the world. It allows people to discover who you are without having to say anything. What I love most about my outfit is my cold shoulder top, it’s a bit of reveal without it being over the top. I threw in some edge by wearing my Valentino shoes.

Question 1: How does it feel to be nominated for best fashion blogger in our community?

Question 2: What's one skincare/beauty product you cannot live without?

ChristianCraven: I cannot live without my Lab Series eye cream, men age in the crows feet region. Eye cream is a preventative measure to ensure no deep wrinkles form. Start now, the earlier, the better.

DashinglyTurnham x Hello_Francois

Today I'm collaborating with Hello_Francois, one of Dallas' top fashion/lifestyle bloggers to ask him JP's 3, photograph him & discuss why his outfit makes a fashment. I promise you we didn't mean to match hahaha.

JP's 3

Question 1: Whose closet would you like to raid and why?

Hello_Francois : I would pick Adam Gallagher because he’s someone I get inspiration from. I’m curious to see his closet because he lives in NYC, so his space is probably small.

Question 2: Which city is the most stylish that you've lived in?

Hello_Francois : I’m going to have to go with London because it’s one of the fashion capitals of the world. The Brits are aware of the latest trends and they love to dress up. Also, the weather is usually cold and foggy, so layering can be key to help make an outfit stand out.

Question 3: What's a current trend you love?

Hello_Francois : I’m a fan of exposing the ankle trend, I think it’s sexy in a subtle way. I would recommend men and women to go to a tailor shop to get their pants hemmed allowing their ankle to be shown.

Today I'm collaborating with Jackielike_whoa, who is also my best friend to ask her JP's 3, photograph her & discuss why her outfit makes a fashment.

Fashment: A combination of fashion & statement, where the person makes a BIG statement based on their fashion style.  Ex: "WOW, your outfit makes a fashment!"

JP's 3: I ask 3 questions to the interviewee to get a better feel of who they are.

JP's 3

Question 1: Which city would you attend fashion week at? NYC, London, Milan or Paris ?

“Jackielike_whoa: I would choose Paris because everyone who is anyone attends Paris fashion week. I wouldn’t make the same mistake LC did, when she was known at the time as the girl who didn’t go to Paris. ”

Question 2: What's your guilty pleasure?

“Jackielike_whoa: I love watching foreign films on Netflix because I’m hoping one day these films will help me learn more languages and information about places I will one day visit. I recommend watching “Instructions Not Included”, it’s a Mexican comedy-drama.”

Question 3: What's your favorite piece from what you wore today?

“Jackielike_whoa: I love my jumpsuit because I found it in the Harajuku district in Tokyo, Japan while I was studying abroad. Surprisingly the jumpsuit fit me like a glove in a place where clothing is typically modeled after petite women.”
