It is the last weekends of summer, and here in London, it usually is Notting Hill Carnival time. As you already know, it was cancelled because of the Covid19 pandemic. Yet this weekend we have brought the party to you. So let the party continue this Sunday Styles with a Carnival Vibez.
If you are partying in your garden or with a small number of family and friends, it is one of the last days to wear white. So we dug in the closets and pulled out something old and something new to get that brand new feeling mixed with some Jamaica and Brazil Socca, Samba, Dance hall and Afrobeat style.
We bring the party outfits to you. With most people staying home on lockdown this summer may not have allowed you to wear those limited edition white sneakers. Now that carnival is online; you don't have to worry about anyone stepping on the white trainer's sneakerheads Queens. Stay safe this weekend dresses in white.

This year we all must also reminder Black Lives Matter!
It's been over five months since Breonna Taylor was shot at least eight times after Louisville police used a battering ram to break into her apartment shortly after midnight. She was only 26. Since that fateful day, Taylor's name has trended and vanished again from our timelines. No officers have been charged for her murder. While it's long overdue, we can and should still demand justice for Breonna Taylor. Below are some ways to get involved.
Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer: Demands for justice can be made by calling Fischer's office at (502) 574-2003 or by filling out the contact form on his site.
Louisville MPD: A contact form is available on the department's site. A template is widely known as well as a submittable form that will automatically send an e-mail in your name.
Fight for Breonna: This petition outlines a list of demands that will bring support to Taylor's mother, Tamika Palmer. Some of the requests have already been met, including the dismissal of Walker's charges and a ban on no-knock warrants in Louisville.
Change.org – Justice for Breonna: Law student Lorelai HoJay launched this Change.org petition to demand charges be filed against the officers involved, as well as damages paid to Taylor's family by the LMPD. It has nearly met its goal of nine million signatures.
Breonna Taylor's Family: An official GoFundMe page has raised over $6 million for Taylor's family through their loss, surpassing its original $500,000 goal. Help them hit 500 Million.
Louisville Bail Funds: Protesters have rallied in support of Taylor and the calls for justice daily throughout June. Donating to the bail fund provides support for those who have been arrested in the process.
