Color Me: Houston Sisters Launch Lipstick Line

Sisters, Chaun Vaughn (Professional Speaker) and Mimi McClure (Fashion Blogger) have always had their hand in something positive and empowering; so the expansion to a lipstick line is no different. “We wanted a line of bold, empowering and colorful lipsticks that last all day and give you the confidence to be more of who you are”, the sisters say.

Launching in November, the sisters will introduce their “Red, Pink, and Gloss – starter kit” to a select group of lipstick lovers at Hotel Ylem. Monday, November 19, the lipstick will be available for order, with a special BLACK FRIDAY sale.

Keep up with Chaun and Mimi to follow the expansion of #ColorMe

VEGAS OR BUST!

Vegas, at 39!

Friday, June 1st, I boarded United flight 1129 and left all my worries and cares behind for a quick trip to Las Vegas. This was my first trip to Vegas; YES! I experienced Las Vegas for the first time, as a 39 year old.

I arrived at McCarran Airport, picked up my luggage, and met my friend Dee. I was hype and ready for (in my mind) a weekend of non-stop partying. We quickly grabbed a cab and were off to LINQ HOTEL to drop our bags and hit the town.

(RUNDOWN of how I spent my days in Vegas, with a few pics.)

Vegas – Day 1

Wax Figures and Walking

Friday, after we freshened up and changed clothes, we hit the Las Vegas Strip. Our first stop was Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. We purchased our libations, and took the escalator up to start the tour. Will Smith, Samuel Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Snoop Dogg and many others were on display; but the highlight for me, was the wax figure of TUPAC (my husband).

Side note:Each time I go to a wax museum it absolutely creeps me out how lifelike these wax figures are. It’s looks like they come alive at night. (like “Night at the Museum”)

The rest of our Friday evening was spent walking the strip, exploring Grand Canal Shoppes (a 500,000 square foot mall) and we ended the night with dinner at Ra Sushi (yum).

Vegas – Day 2

The turn up is real?

Saturday, our day began with brunch and bottomless mimosas at HEXX Kitchen and Bar. We thought we had a celebrity sighting (James Corden – Car Karoake), but it was a false alarm. After brunch, we did a little shopping, then back to the hotel to get ready for Frank Marino’s DIVAS.

About the Show:

DIVAS – This show was AMAZING! The cast of female impersonators performed (in true DIVA fashion) all of the best hits from Tina Turner, Cher, Celine Dion and Whitney Houston to name a few. Frank Marino is so funny, he literally had the audience laughing before and in-between each set. On a 10 point scale, I’d give it a 10! I highly recommend it, and the bonus is, if you are staying in LINQ HOTEL it’s right in the hotel on the 3rd floor.

Later that evening we put our walking shoes back on to enjoy a nice dinner. Imagine my excitement when we ran across NOBU. Now, to be honest the only time I’ve heard of NOBU is in a 2CHAINZ song, but hey! If it’s good enough for 2 CHAINZ, it will work for me. The ambience, service and food were all 5 ⭐️ stars.

NOBU is where Vegas – Day 2 ended, because when we made it back to the room… we were sleep by 9:30p.m. (I’m not old)

Vegas – Day 3

Packing and preparing for the flight back home.

Packing Day:

Vegas is a PARTY city, and is something I wish I would’ve done in my 20’s. Overall this was a relaxing getaway and I can now say, I’ve experienced VEGAS!

Making Magic from your Closet

I love to shop and find new outfits, but yesterday I decided to shop in my closet! Yes, my own closet! I must say,  I was able to create NEW OUTFIT MAGIC! …….Let me explain. 

I took some of my denim jeans (that have been hanging in the closet untouched for a while) and with the snip of the scissors turned them into denim shorts. My long kimono, is actually a maxi dress that has been cut down the middle. Paired these items with a brown belt and off the shoulder bodysuit, and can you say…NEW OUTFIT ALERT!


You don’t always have to go to the store to get something new, check out what’s hanging in your closet (that you probably haven’t worn in a while) and make some NEW OUTFIT MAGIC!

Living Life Like its Golden.. or Bronze! 

Christmas time brings the biggest smiles, warmest hugs and jovial spirits. Decorating, cooking, spending time with family and friends, and (of course) shopping, what makes the Christmas holidays so much fun! But…What would Christmas be without the festive attire?!

I’ll be honest – I’ve never participated in the UGLY Christmas sweater parties; but I do LOVE all the bright holiday colors. This year, I chose to go against the standard RED or GREEN I normally wear Christmas Day, and make Christmas GOLDEN! Golden… or should I say BRONZE! 

This Christmas, the weather wasn’t the only thing that was HOT! I rocked a Slinky Wrap Drape Dress and Duster set in a beautiful bronze metallic color. This piece is definitely an attention getter and will turn a head …or two. 



Affordable
! This duo is a very inexpensive find. I picked this up for less than $60 from one of my favorite online shopping gems, Boohoo

What did you wear this Christmas? I’d love to see your pics. Send them to me @ fashionablymimi@gmail.com 

It’s ALL in the BAG!

I am always looking for the next fashionable “IT” bag to add to my collection. I mean, I LOVE PURSES; but what lady doesn’t? When you have the right bag, it makes your outfit pop!

In the world of handbags, I don’t prefer one brand over the other; I just like functionality and longevity. My bag of choice (today) is the Pulicati Epi Leather Large Satchel. I found this fun bag in Marshalls for the low price of $160. This was a great find for me and hopefully you will find the perfect bag for you!

What is your fashionable “IT” Bag find? I’d like to see it! Follow me on IG @fashionablymimi or email mimimcphotog@gmail.com
