Make Sisterhood Great Again Brunch + Day Party was a VIBE! Over 120 women of all ages, races, and backgrounds filled in one space to celebrate life and unity. No particular agenda, just woman meeting and supporting other women. An event for women by women. We had over 20 women connect in creating the launch party for Make Sisterhood Great Again, from our caterer, photographer, bomb vendors, to our DJ; everyone was a female business women and entrepreneurs.

Live DJ, mimosa bar, dessert station and the cutest selfie props where no match to the amount of love and connectivity that filled around us. We got the opportunity to meet and connect with so many of you. We can’t wait to host our first event under the Make Sisterhood Great Again platform. We can already tell from the launch party there will be more connections, more opportunities for collaborations, and a wider spread of unity through sisterhood.

I believe in women uplifting other women. The only thing that makes our gender weaker, is the fact that we are the gender less likely to stand up for the other. We are the gender more likely to try and make another look bad, and when one of us is already bad, instead of being kind, we pound them into the ditches. And that’s what makes us weak, nothing else. If we can change this, we can change the whole structure of our being female, I truly believe this. – C. JoyBell C.

Make Sisterhood Great Again Launch Party

There was so much dopeness involved in creating the launch of Make Sisterhood Great Again including our caterer Gabrielle Mcbay, she is the real MVP for creating an awesome menu to feed over 120 women: french toast bread pudding, waffles, bacon, southern cheesy grits, and fresh fruit. Our favorite photographer Marrica Evans, banging DJ Nikki Nicole who had us vibing to everything from Beyoncé to Cardi B. and our vendors + interactive stations can’t go without being mentioned:

Rose Styles Studio provided a complementary style bar and provided express curls, trims, and sleek iron work. Owner Rosemary also provide education for installing and wearing extensions.

The Cook with Cakes self taught baker and cook along with Caketails Cupcakes Dallas who specializes in edible cocktails provided a delectable dessert table.

Studio 616 is a lifestyle boutique tailored to the dope soul that instantly lights up any room with her presence & unorthodox style. Offering both “after 5” must-have pieces and styling concierge services. We can be found having convos and cosmos with our favorite girlfriends or wandering in a new city! Infectious and inspiring we’re rocking to the beat of our own drums and uplifting & empowering others along the way.

Curly & Molly begin in 2013 when a middle school science teacher decided to use her passion for kids and design to create custom artwork for family and friends. This passion only grew as her family grew. Inspired by her own children and students their shared moments became the driving force of Curly & Molly. Curly & Molly’s mission is to create moments that bring families together. And encourage us all to create, color, and write.

Vixen Vanity Inc. provided the opportunity to experience and purchase products from It Works.

Denim Style Guide

Best Denim StyleBest Denim StyleBest Denim StylePink SweaterDistress Denim Hem

I’ve been overly obsessed with denim lately. Although it has been a sad occasion for my wallet, I think you will find a lot of joy knowing that I have researched and updated the best 9 types of jeans for women this season! Thankfully jeans are a staple and isn’t something you should replace every season. I mean… unless you outgrow them. But right now we are in our fantasy closet where our tummy stay on flat-flat and well I’m sure you know the rest! ☺️☺️

I’m giving you the updated status on what to keep and what to rid yourself of as you prepare to embrace this winter weather! Here are the top 9 jeans for the upcoming seasons:

1. High Rise Clean And Dark

This is going to be great jean to pair with so many of the color trends for winter. Perfect for a denim, sweater and thigh boot combo. This will give you a clean trendy look without looking like you gave your outfit too much thought.

I just snagged a pair from Fashion Nova!

2. Colored Denim

This isn’t a type of denim that I normally go for, but if you can find a nice pair at a good price then it would be a great addition to your closet. For this winter season I suggest opting for a cranberry, olive, or grey denim

Colored Skinny Jeans

Tip: Search your local TJ Max or Marshall’s before you splurge on colored denim.

3. Ripped Skinny

Ripped denim is always fun! I prefer denim that is ripped at the knee and below. I’m not a fan of my hefty thigh meat sticking out of my jeans. 😩😒 Distressing at the top half of my jean and fine, anything else has to be something I’m literally dying to have.

High Waisted Jeans

Tip: If you have enough ripped denim try a moto cut jean like these, that will give your jeans some edge without the holes.

4. Boyfriend Jeans

These are a go to for me. Boyfriend jeans can be dubbed as a comfortable and sexy jean depending on your choice of top and shoes.

Example: Casual- Boyfriend jeans, stripped tee shirt and booties  Sexy- Boyfriend jeans, over sized sweater, and pumps

5. Wax Coated Jeans

I like Wax Coated Jeans much more that faux leather jeans. Much better fit and I don’t have to go up 12 sizes just to get my leg in the pants! Lol!

6. Distressed Hem Jeans

Skinny jeans with a little edge! You can go all out with full on fray or you can do a more settled look shown below.

7. Mom Jeans

A good upgrade to boyfriend jeans. A cute comfy feel with a more feminine cut.

8. Embroidered Jeans

My fun jeans, super cute for weekend wear.

9. Flare Legged Jeans

Flare Legged Jeans are great because they are flattering to most women, no matter your shape and size. Beware of the length that you decide to get. Flare legged jeans will not give you versatile shoe options like skinny and boyfriend jeans.

Tip: Take your jeans to a local tailor along with your favorite shoes for the perfect length alteration.

10. Busted Knee Skinny

🚨 Disclaimer: When I providing you with this guide I’m not doing it to say hey you! 👋🏾 if you wanna be cool like me go out and buy such and such. I’m provide you with the best information so that you can go out and make conscious and educated decisions with your suga daddies hard earned money! 💰 LOL (I’m kidding about the suga daddy part!)

So tell me what jeans do you see you yourself adding to you wardrobe this season?

Xoxo,

Amanda Bell
