Losing myself in fashion.


The other day the fantasticness of Solange Knowles’ “Losing You” video was brought to my attention. I am more than happy that this video is in my life.


We all know that both of the Knowles sisters are completely stunning. Recently, Solange being the DJ, singer, model jetsetter that she is traveled to South Africa for music fashion hotness. The video is seriously like watching a video of a high fashion photo shoot. Brilliant location, loads of bright colors, and lots of movement. 


I am a girl that loves bright colors and there was a ton of things in this video that made my eyeballs smile.  I haven’t seen a mainstream video in ages that was so visually artistic and satisfying.


Solange loves her prints and she wears them well. I nearly passed out at the sight of this blazer.



Not only does this woman look amazing in a flared orange pantsuit but she also has a pack of seven over the top stylish dudes. Snow White can keep her dwarves, Solange has her gents.


Someone get me that ghetto blaster and everything everyone has on in this hangout session. I’m in love with the amount of color and big hair.


So loving this Princess and the Pea moment and the look. It’s so luscious.



I’m not fully sure how this girl pulled of so much glam on a bike but I need to learn this skill. She actually managed to dance around in the streets, hit up a party, sit around on random items AND jump into a pool and still look fantastic. I need to re-watch the video and practice being fierce at any given time because that is a talent.

After the release of the video, Solange  wrote on Twitter, “So humbled, & grateful for the overwhelming response to ‘Losing you’. Even the lovely Janelle Monae had to go out of her way to congratulate her on a job well done and a new jam for all of us to enjoy.

Solange described the track as being “eclectic with ’80s references and African percussion influences.” The video was directed by Melina Matsoukas and believe it or not there was no concrete concept at first. Solange stated that “When Melina and I decided to film ‘Losing You’ in South Africa, we really didn’t have a real firm concept in place. It was sort of a grab a camera and let’s go moment.” I can definitely feel this in the most positive of ways in the entire video. So much heart and feeling is behind every frame. Kudos to bringing art back to the masses and with dapper dudes, fros, and prints!

Solange isn’t losing me,
