One of my dearest friends in the whole wide world, Phire Dawson, has just penned a new book on etiquette. Not just any etiquette…”Hot Girl Etiquette.” It’s a modern girl’s guide to manners and a properly fabulous life! Check her out: http://www.hotgirletiquette.com/. Follow @HotGrlEtiquette.
What makes Phire an EXPERT? Well, her whole life. Let me give you the “Cliff Notes.” Connecticut-born, she began performing as a dancer and cheerleader at age eight. Phire attended Spelman College in Atlanta, GA. While in Atlanta, she cheered for the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons. After receiving her B.A. Phire soon moved to Los Angeles to pursue modeling and acting. Within a year, Phire was gracing the pages of magazines, commercials, and getting her first job on “The Price is Right.” Since moving to Hollywood she has appeared in several magazines, commercials, t.v. shows, and films. Here are some pics I took of Phire at a downtown LA happy hour during June. Phire sports an AllSaints beaded skirt and wears her fav denim jacket – a big trend this season. Watch out for more from me on Phire Dawson!
Fashion Femme Fatale Feature: Above is a video from AllSaints Spitafields showing the journey of a handmade embellished dress, from the sequin market in Old Delhi, to the hand drawn concepts in house which are intricately hand beaded. Gives me even more appreciation for the beaded garments!
PS: Listen to her podcast, In The Lady’s Room, where she & LA besties Lanisha Cole and Nora Moore share secrets about love, life, sex & style with tons of great interviews (like below). Follow @IntheLadysRoom
I'm a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I've been "reporting" from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL!
