Jennifer Williams in Punk & Pearl “Loubs & Lipgloss” Tee at Circle of Sisters

Jennifer Williams in Punk & Pearl “Loubs & Lipgloss” Tee at Circle of Sisters

Today we enjoyed a glorious 82 degrees in the city.  I stepped out in a soft, flowing cowl-neck Nicole Miller top, skinny jeans, and my most comfortable wedge heels.  That’s because I spent the afternoon covering Day 2 of WBLS Circle of Sisters Expo in NYC.  There were many vendors and exhibits to enjoy but one booth I especially looked forward to visiting was that of my favorite reality starlet Jennifer Williams of “Basketball Wives.”  I caught up with the entrepreneuress and fashionista at her Lucid Cosmetics table.

Jen was busy with the sales of Lucid Lip Gloss (lots of ladies wanted to get those lips popping!) but she made time to chat with Style Me Prissy, and we talked style, beauty and, of course, Lucid Lip Gloss.  It was fabulous to finally chop it up in person with Jen after keeping such close tabs on her fashion through the past seasons of “Basketball Wives.”  She’s a real doll. My favorite is when we were taking a photo and her security gave me the side-eye after I requested a “do-over” and that he be sure to include our shoes.  Jen assured him (as though it explained everything): “She’s a fashion blogger!”  I love that she “gets” it! *smile*

Of course, I had to ask Jen what she was wearing today.  She’s rocking the limited edition “Loubs & Lipgloss” tee from Punk & Pearl Boutique’s swag collection.  (Could that logo be any more perfect for the day?) She paired the tee with denim capri pants and Christian Louboutin Madame Butterfly Peep Toe Leopard Print Pumps (last spotted at the “Basketball Wives” Season 3 Reunion).  She finished the look with Napa Gloss, stacked beaded bracelets, and her signature sleek tresses with center part swept to the side.

Of course, I dashed home to take a peek at Punk & Pearl’s Lookbook. They’ve got some dope pieces in their collection.

You can visit Punk & Pearl Boutique at 89 Fort Greene Place in Brooklyn (between Fulton and DeKalb).  I’m not sure how I managed to live in Brooklyn for 10 years and never knew about this funky little shop!  Will be hopping on the A train to check them out in person sooner than later.  Apparently, they have wine tastings and cupcakes most Fridays – FUN!

Meanwhile, you can get your own lips popping over at Lucid Cosmetics.  Remember, free shipping with code EXPO until 10/11!

Check out Jen’s look on Day 1 of WBLS Circle of Sisters Expo!
