Contest Winner + Friday Real Style

[R. Kelly jury selection hearing]
Dave Chappelle: Listen, lady, the burden of proof is on the state. [shouts] On the State! You have got to prove - *to me* - beyond a reasonable doubt whether or not this man is a pisser.
Prosecutor: Aren't your doubts unreasonable?
Dave Chappelle: No, it's not unreasonable. We're talking about a justice system that had 500 people whose cases were overturned by DNA evidence. I seen a tape where five cops beat up a n*gga and they said that they had a reasonable doubt. I got my doubts too! All right? How come they never found Biggie and Tupac's murderers, but they could arrest O.J. the next day. Nicole Simpson can't rap!

Hey Y'all!
So jury duty...

... was only for one day, but it was a loooong, boring affair. I'm *so* glad it's over! If you haven't served yet, I'd recommend:
1. Comfortable Clothes
2. A good, thick book...I'm reading a great one called, "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" by Dave Eggers--fab!
3. A sense of humor. Seriously.
But it's over, huzzah, and now I can retreat back into my warm fashion cocoon.
While I was gone, I received many (correct) entries for the Fashion Bomb's Contest. I had to decide the winner based on who contacted me *first*...
And the lucky recipient of the fab Boutique Finesse earrings is....Toni Wills, a self described 'Washington DC ultra fashionista,' who correctly guessed that Ciara's jeans...

..are these Grey Ant highwaisted head turners...

...available for $330 at shopbop.com

Congrats, Toni!
How exciting!
I'll end this post with The Fashion Bomb's second Real Style submission...

...from faithful reader Nora. Ms. Thing looks fly-y-y-y in a piped trench, matching bag, tights, and hot cream boots. Note the cell phone for dramatic effect. Pimpin'.
Keep your real style submissions coming!
Smootches!
PS I heard through the grapevine that Target's next Go collection designer is none other than...

...black designer Patrick Robinson. Keep your eyes peeled for his frisky frocks in Target stores this summer!
PSS It's been a decade since Biggie passed away...

...Still love Big Poppa? Cop his Greatest Hits CD in stores today.

I don't think I could pull off high waist jeans, but Ciara always seems to get the look right.

High waist jeans are gross...they remind me of mom jeans.

I think she looks cute. It's nice to see her make a more fashionable statement than just her usual baggy sweats and baby tees, However (I gasp as I type this because I looove a good hair weave/wig) she needs to remove at least 1/2 bundle of hair from her lace front wig. It's waay to mauch hair for her. Stay Fierce
