Janelle Monae 'Many Moons'

In case you have been out of the music loop for a minute, we thought that we should enlighten you to an alternative artist Janelle Monae. Janelle Monae is originally from the ATL. She was an independent artist but recently signed with the one and only P. Didddy (the reason is unclear seeing how he has not been publicizing her). Any who, we LOVE her! We invested in the CD over the weekend 'METROPOLIS'. The CD was on sale at Target for $4.99 and it is well worth the pocket change! Invision a female outer space earthing (much like what your boy Mr. West haS evolved into). The CD has HOT beats, dope lyrics, and is pretty damn HOT(we were sad to see that the CD only had 7 tracks on it; must have been a tester)! Now if only we could see Janelle Monae, Solange, and Kanye West all on the same ticket the world would be a better place! Check it out and then go out and buy it!

Simple Actions Make BIG Differences...

Hello Readers! Today we want to discuss Earth Day. On our mission to be chic and green, we have looked to Louis Vuitton for comfort. The brand is wanting all FABULOUS people to celebrate Earth Day with them (for purchases made from the United States only). For every purchase made online from customers in the  US, the brand will donate 15% of all online purchase proceeds to The Climate Project. We think this is a productive gesture on the part of Louis Vuitton to help do their part to commit to a better Earth (just wondering why it's only from US purchases that are being donated), never the less they are doing something, so bravo to Louis Vuitton. A girl can always use a fabulous and chic new handbag or other accessory from them (sorry ladies; cheap just doesn't fit into this category)!

Fab Shoes of the Week: Alloy Mahican Heel

Fab readers we have had our eye on this pair of shoes for the past two months and since they have yet to go on sale we might have to buy them for regular price. The Mahican Heel from Alloy is super sexy and fun heel that has fringe detail. It has a 4"heel on a half inch platform and is priced at $40.00. Call us crazy but we think this shoe would look great with a super frilly, girly flower dress (that has been popping up everywhere)...we will have to test out the outfit on polyvore and let you know how it turns out. Check out the shoes below and let us know what you think.

This Sums It Up


The Pull On Short Courtesy of Amber Rose

Admit it fab readers, as much as we (and when I say we I mean you) love to talk about Amber Rose we here at Fab Chic and Cheap secretly love her. We love the haircut....did we mention we have a thing for edgy cuts...(not Cassie's but that's for another post on another day) and we love her style (though we know it's an upgrade courtesy of Kanye). It takes a bold person to walk down the street in some of those outfits and more importantly own the outfits. Enough with our latest girl crush and why we crush on her, on to her look. About a month ago she was out shopping with Kanye in LA and had on a pair of pull on shorts. While everyone wondered what the hell she was wearing, we saw our next purchase for summer. Check out a few of our fave pull on shorts and let us know if you will be partaking in the trend this summer?

The Model's Man

Fab Readers, have a you ever wondered who your fave models are dating? While we have to admit, this is not a question that we ask ourselves often, our mind wonders at the thought. The most common question being that: These are some of the most beautiful women in the world are the men they date equally as gorgeous or do they give regular looking guys (i.e. the Jermaine Dupree's) hope that they too will one day find their supermodel. Well there is no need to wonder any longer, fashionologie has gotten their hands on a few scans of an upcoming spread for Vogue with a few Supermodels and their Supermen. While a few of the couples did surprise us, for the most part they are some pretty cute couples. Check them out below and let us know if you think the are a match made in heaven?Click here for the article

Anna Jagodzinska and Duncan Winecoff
Arlenis Sosa and Rene Rodriguez
Chanel Iman and Tyga
Doutzen Kroes and Greg Andrews

Three Finger Rings

So fab readers, our latest obsession are three finger rings. The three (multi) finger rings have been seen on several fashionable celebrities for months, but it was not until Wednesday, when we saw a woman rocking one that we added it to our crave list. The three finger ring is a great way to accessorize and glam up an outfit. Rather bold or subtle we think the rings are a trend we would like to see stay for a while. What do you think fab readers do you love them too, or are they a little to Mr. T for you? check out a few faves below, all available at Girlprops.
