Decoded: Elements of Rasheeda Frost’s Chic Urban Style

rasheeda frost looks

VH1 star of Love and Hip Hop‘s Rasheeda Frost‘s style is quite popular and on my favorite social bookmarking site, Pinterest, she gets tons of love. It makes sense, the wife and mom to two, and boutique owner has an urban, chic, sophisticated, polished and unique style.

I’ve decoded her style aesthetic to four signature pieces that make up each of her fabulous looks:

 

Start with an oversized duster, cardigan, sweater or jacket that goes down to the calf or ankle.

Wear a trendy, designer or screen t-shirt, baggy or tucked in with a belt.

 

Overtop distressed jeans or fitted dark denims

 

Pair with pumps, thigh high boots or funky expressive booties.

 

There you go! Let’s copy her looks! I know I will…stay tuned….

Watch Erica Mena and Safaree’s Fun Gender Non Reveal Video

Before the birth of their first child together, the married VH1 stars of the hit show Love and Hip Hop  Safaree and Erica Mena performed a series of gender reveals to find out whether they’re having a boy or girl.

In the set of stringed-together shorts, they try three very popular gender reveal tactics to determine if they are having a boy or girl for their first child together. First, they cut open a white frosted several-layered cake hoping to see a pink or blue colored inside but no luck!

There is a set of different colored layers of a rainbow cake. Womp Womp Womp!!! Next up…the balloon reveal. Will this trick reveal the baby’s sex or no?



A bunch of white balloons drift out when they open it together at the count of 3 so… no luck there, either. Their banter is pretty funny in between each “reveal.” Finally, they dry the usual poppers which usually stream out pink or blue confetti if done right.  But for the Samuels, they get a bunch of tiny bills flowing out! Not “tiny” as in $1s but as in miniature bills! ha!

It’s a fun reveal and in the end, we still do not know. Stay tuned!

VH1s  Love and Hip Hop star and Rapper Remy Ma (real name Reminisce Smith) is about 6 months along in her first pregnancy with husband Shamele “Papoose” Mackie.

However, the pretty cocoa-complexioned vixen and business woman has not yet “popped”, if you will, and is sporting still a pretty chic and sveltish figure in her cute collection of clothing.

Judging from the pics the Dark and Lovely spokeswoman and brand ambassador has posted on her social media pages, you can barely tell that she and her hubby of  10 years will be welcoming their first child by year’s end.

They suffered a very much public miscarriage and since she became pregnant, Papoose has had a hard time containing his excitement about becoming a parent.

The change of plans comes a few days after Bardi told Jimmy Fallon on his late night talk show during her historic co-hosting gig that she planned to work until the baby arrived.

“I don’t know if it’s the strength of the fetus, but I have never felt so hungry to succeed,” Cardi shared during her co-hosting spot on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the other week. “I rehearsed for this show,” the rapper continued. “I actually was up today at four in the morning.

She eventually landed a casting role on the VH1 TV series Love & Hip Hop: New York between 2015 and 2017, but she really started to get some fame after getting an Atlantic Records deal.

Her first single, “Bodak Yellow,” hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart – making her only the second female rapper to steal the top spot with a solo track.

She had already canceled the Wireless Festival in July and Variety said that it’s “safe to assume” her July dates, and even potentially some shows in May, will be cancelled when her due date rolls around.
