Have you ever heard the phrase dress to impress? Today, our featured guest, D’Angelo, shows us how to dress up for any occasion.

From head to toe, D’Angelo shows off his debonair look for the day. He opted for  a very European inspired look with a  two piece, grey tweed suit, and a multi-colored bow tie. With temperatures still cool, tweed material is definitely a great choice. It keeps you warm, without compromising style.

So, how do you feel about this particular look? Feel free to share with us in the comments section below

Brands: Positive Vibes Only

We apologize for the lack of updates lately. The team is working around the clock to bring in some new content for Spring.A few weeks ago, we met with Dante English, creator of a new clothing line called Positive Vibes Only. As you know, we love featuring other tastemakers like ourselves. For this post, we asked Dante to explain a little bit more about his brand line and the inspiration behind it. Check out the full interview below!

Who are the creative geniuses behind your brand (Staff members)?
Duke Page and myself.

Let’s discuss the history of your brand. When and why were you created?
Positive Vibes Only clothing was started in 2016. The name itself is one of the statements that help your mindset at times. Back in the day, my friends and I group message to have conversations. Anytime there was an argument or something negative happened we would say PVO. The more and more we said it, the more I realized how staying positive in life helped me get through the trials and tribulations that I have faced before. No matter what happens in life I try to see the bright side or see the positive in that negative situation, and make the best of it. So I said, “Hey, I am going to get some shirts made and see how it goes.” So, I reached out to some friends and had some logos drawn out and the reached out to my cousin to make the logos for me. Once I had the logos created I reached out to Ryan Lee to get the colors out.

What is the objective of your brand?
The objective of our brand is to get people to undestand the message behind Positive Vibes Only. It serves as a mindset that can help you in everyday life. For instance, if you wake up in a bad mood, you might say, “Hey, I want to wear my Positive Vibes Only T-shirt today. No matter what happens today I’m keeping positive vibes only today.” If someone sees the shirt I want them to think “Hey, I like that slogan. Positive Vibes Only today for me also!” When people see something with words on it they automatically read it. When you read something in your head it flows through your mind. Now you have positive vibes only in your mind throughout the day.

How are you able to distinguish your brand from others?
Our brand can be distinguished from others by our logo design. One logo is a stop sign with PVO and Positive Vibes Only words inside. This is the #StopNegativity logo. Our most popular logo is the #StayStrong fist logo. The fists stand for power, solidarity, strength, and is used as a salute to express unity. Our newest Logo is the 2017 To-Do List. This logo originated from the Instagram posts that went viral. It was the statement with three boxes with a statement and the last one had a check mark. Our logo says “2017 To-Do List” and the choices are stress, be Negative, and Positive Vibes Only. I’m sure you know which box has the check mark.

What are your long term goals for your brand?
The long terms goals of this clothing line are to touch millions of people’s minds and bodies. It’s more than just about the money or the recognition. I want walk in the mall and see my logo on a famiy, a woman, a kid, a man, or anybody. I don’t want them to know I am the creature of the line. Just seeing people in different cities and states in the clothing and smiling is what my long term goal is. Then if the money comes I want to give back to the community and make donations to people in need. When I do make those donations it will be from Positive Vibes Only.

Where do you see your band in the next five years?
In five years I see this company with new products in the market. I see new color waves. I see new logos and logos to give people variety. I see the brand on a Steve Harvey Show talking about the effect that this mindset can have in our everyday life. Remember it’s more than a clothing line……….it’s a MINDSET!

Sneakers: Nike

As you know, we are completely in love with the midi dress, and it’s safe to say that Alvi shares the same sentiments. Today, Alvi is showing off her brightly colored knit, midi dress.

Styled with her leather moto jacket and Nike Huaraches, Alvi’s look is very reminiscent of the early 2000s.

Female action stars like Aaliyah and Mila Jovovich were styling in their long dresses, while kicking some major ass as well. With that being said, this dress is super casual and comfortable.
