I am glad it’s finally getting warm outside! I plan to switch out my closet this weekend, so I’ll be lightening up my wardrobe too.

Rihanna always looks so strange to me. Is it the alien forhead or bug eyes? I heard rumors that she is trying to steal J away from Bey…say it isn’t so!!

I actually think this dress is super cute and she makes it look tasteful. Not sure I could pull off something that short though.

Rihanna looks great in
anything that she wears.
Personally,I think
she’s way prettier
than Beyonce and less
of a diva.

Hi! My name is Kristen and I work for I also could not be happier to see the temperatures finally starting to rise. I am also exciting that denim companies are not making it even easier to wear jeans during those hot summer months. Brands, like Goldsign, have introduced styles made of ultra lightweight denim to keep you cool in the hot summer sun. Cropped denim, like J & Company’s Canon Cross, is also another great way to show off some sexy leg while saying cool.

The dress is cute, Rihanna is a pretty girl but she has a big forehead.
