Kim Sheree (Senior Fashion Editor) Wish List:
2017, was a rough year in many ways…and a lot of heartache & tragedy could have been avoided if humanity could just learn to unify for good & progress. In a time when there’s so much division, it would be a great gift to the world if we could come together in a positive way more often. All 6+ billion of us only have this planet & the now to make the world better for future generations…instead of coming together in hate & separatism, imagine what we could do if we came together in positive growth & change.
2). The Frame TV by Samsung
As a lover of all things tech, it’s been cool seeing how much tv technology has changed. To discover that a TV set can now become a work of art is even cooler. Along with different frame options (so it blends seamlessly into your gallery wall), this tv comes with an “art mode” in which you can upload stunning images of art or your favorite photos. Blank black screens are so last year.
3). Fenty Pointed Creeper (in patent leather)

This book is the pinnacle of all things fashion & all this MJ. It’s basically an encyclopedia of how style, personality, talent, & performance all came together to create Mike’s iconic looks. Written by Jackson’s longtime stylist & designer friend, The King of Style gives us a glimpse into the world of style that was so unique & so…Michael.
5). Pendleton Blanket
Not new to the world, but fairly new to me are the stunning patterns & quality of Pendleton goods. I’d love to add one of their vibrant throws to my never ending quest for optimum coziness. Not only are there so many great patterns to choose from, but the company also works closely with Native communities in showcasing the art & design of Native American artists.
