Massachusetts songstress Meghan Trainor has been enjoying a great amount of success with her single “All About The Bass” topping the charts almost worldwide and EP “Title”peaking at 15 on US Billboard 200 charts. Trainor confirmed the follow up single would be the title track and a visual has been shot but a new song has made it`s way online called “Lips Are Moving” which is reported to be the next official single and the lead single lifted from her upcoming full length albumwhich is set to release via Epic sometime early next year.
The song follows the same formula as “All About The Bass”, it could even be considered “All About That Bass 2.0”, it`s a retro-pop number with blue-eyed soul feel to it and a great radio friendly appeal, destined to be another huge hit for the singer.

The song talks about a girl who is dealing with a two-timing liar and she wants him to know that she knows and won’t have any part of it: “I know you lie, cause your lips are moving. Tell me do you think I’m dumb? I might be young, but I ain’t stupid. Talking around in circles with your tongue, I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk. Saying how I’m your number one, but I know you lie. Cause your lips are moving, baby don’t you know I’m done….”

As fashion week comes to a close; one of the last shows that I attended was presented by BRUCEGLEN. This pair of dynamic designing twins are known for their uber chic leather slapsticks and ingenious leather handbags.  With a new collaboration with Nina Shoes, BruceGlen can add shoes to their arsenal.

  After hearing the designers say that the collection was inspired by an Indian themed carnival, all of the decorations and the collections aesthetic became very clear. All around the studio were popcorn containers with cotton candy inside, Fountains of chocolate and round double tiered plates filled with mini cupcakes. I couldn’t help but to feel extra excited to see what BruceGlen had in store for us.




As each model walked down the staircase I was stunned at all of the beautiful colors and how we’ll the different fabrics blend. I am a lover of all things that shine & sparkle so the embellishments throughout the show left me feeling more than satisfied. The Collection had such innovative construction I imagine it would make each piece like an adventure when it comes to the different ways one chooses to style it. The color choices really complemented one another and I think BruceGlen may have set the start of a new trend with the chic skirt + pants combo and my favorite the draped tops.





After the presentation Designers of BRUCEGLEN gathered to take pictures and celebrate with Family and Friends. I must say The Dynamic Designing Twins are something to look out for because they are on the rise.
