It is very sadly looking as though Brooke, although still under contract for the moment, is exiting TNA Impact. Sniffle. Sob. Inhale. Inhale. Full-fledged wailing..."nooooooooo!" After rocking the ring and our worlds on a continuous basis, a Brooke-less Impact will be a terrible, horrible, barely endurable thing indeed.Brooke has promised further details on her tough decision via twitter. Until then, we will be suffering in not-so-silence and turning into a die-hard Brooke-WWE shipper (maybe? possibly? pretty please? *hopeful smile*.) Here's hoping whatever she does and wherever she goes, we'll get to share her journey! Best wishes & love from Diva-Fierce, Brooke!
This super-fun pairing of textures was one of my favorite looks from Alicia Fox last year. The matching of cool, smooth cotton poplin with a fuzzy knit had such a haute couture feel! Mixing textures always elevates a look. For this edition of Inspiration, I've re-imagined her look with the textures swapped: a smooth, silky midi skirt, paired with a slightly cropped faux fur jacket The color story is all about the blend of soft neutrals with pink, for a warm, feminine appeal. I've kept the lace-up look of her booties, but gone with a fur trimmed variant to keep the textural play going. Foxy added a bit of modern dash with suspenders, while I've done something similar by going for the slightly exotic, having-it's-moment halter, via this BCBG piece. If you're less daring, consider adding a pinch of leather with a belt at your waist or wrist to bring a little more edge to this soft, cozy, flowy look. You could dress this up with a collared shirt like Foxy's and a bit of glam jewelry, or dress it down with a tee shirt and ivory denim jacket. Wear it to lunch, to dinner, to school (but only if you want to turn heads ;)) to the symphony, to a Thanksgiving celebration. Happy styling! And #BeInspired XO
It's been awhile since we've done a FashionHap...and longer since we've done some salivating over gear. So, here is your long-awaited drooling. #BringYourOwnBeachTowel :). HIAC and it's accompanying matches were all about sheers and reds. Nikki changed up her famous, flawless, Fearless gear to include a triangle-shape cup, made crazy sexy with a sheer panel completing the rest of the halter style. She reprised the sheer fabric at the sides of her shorts: oo la la! The brilliant white and smooth fabric give this ensemble an icy clean, fierce feel. And she brought in a touch of her favorite red with slim, studded piping and lettering. I'm totally attracted to the straightforward, pared-down boldness of this version of her gear!
Charlotte has added crosspieces to her bralette-style top, which brings a nice twist to a classic look. She also debuted this smoking (literally) flame print version of her gear. I'm glad she kept her top and bottoms matching and let this pattern take the spotlight. The fiery trim helps tie the look together. This is a super-strong print, and Charlotte rocks it! It's ideally suited to the blazing warmth of her personality Her beloved stud belt completes the look perfectly; the studs catch the light and make it look like real fire! Ooo - maybe she could add a light sprinkle of copper studs all over this print next time around to enhance that look :)
Carmella also caught our attention with not one, but TWO, very awesome gear ensembles. Her style has always struck me as being relentlessly NYC-meets-Jersey-Shore: a bit wild, but it works! Her first ensemble (and my fav of the pair) matches a cap-sleeve crop top with a sheer inset and leather shorts. It's the studs at her shoulders that give this look a bit of an 80's vibe and make it really stand out! Knee socks and camo sneakers complete the outfit. Her next offering replicates the sheer+leather hookup in a halter style. Touches of leopard print at the base of her top and at her waist bring out the brassy, in-yo-face fierceness that Carmella is a fan of. And making us fans of as well! :)
I get inspired by so many things. And what I end up with doesn't always look like the thing the inspiration came from. Many times, it's more about a riff on the idea something conjures up. For example, this fabulous outfit of Gail Kim's is designed for a photoshoot or a stage show or a music vid. It's seriously HAWT. But it would be tough to pull off amid the general public. But the idea of this shoot? Oh, now that we can rock! This look is all about an unabashed homage to RED. And it's a great thing to pay tribute to this fall because the color is as hot as it can get. To offer a spin on Gail's look, I've imagined pairing a chunky knit sweater (the assymetrical hemline is fun and unusual, but optional) and slim pants in a matching shade for a monochromatic look and then spiking it with black accessories: over-the-knee boots a la Gail, a mod black statement necklace and a simple, sleek bag. The look could be done with a turtleneck, or even a poncho for variation. Red skinny jeans would work too, making the ensemble a bit more casual. I hope this inspires your style this week! Happy Monday, Fiercenti!
In case you still were hesitating or unsure about whether you truly, madly, deeply NEED the Impact Knockouts 2016 calendar, the Impact Wrestling Instagram page has showcased a few more shots from it. And it looks like it is everything we guessed and dreamed it would be: HOT pics, killer neon colors and fab shots! Madison rocks a lime green bkini top paired with a barely-there purple swim skirt. Rebel makes her presence known in a foil-print string top and cute turquoise bottoms. Jade goes for some of her coolest fashion ever: a shimmering monokini paired with a jaw-dropping pair of strappy booties..oh my! Love those! Christy shines like the sun in a yellow bikini paired with print bottoms and rocks a bunch of gorgeous jewelry (that's how you layer necklaces, folks!)
SO, woot woot..finally some new Knockouts pics..yayness! I found these floating around on the Impact Wrestling Instagram, so head yourself over here. (Or for the Madison Rayne ones, you can check out MadisonRayne.net ;)). The pics all have a sports theme, including football and, appropriately for the Impact World Series, baseball - nice tie-in, people! Velvet Sky looks aaaamazing in this referee's outfit. Seriously, she could probably make bunches of bum calls and NO ONE would care. In fact, I doubt the guys would be watching the ball at all ;) The black and white striping is crisp and ref-appropriate, but its the sheer insets that take it to the next level. She pairs it with a cute ruffled skirt with a tie belt and fishnet hosiery. PS I LOVE her candy pink lip color!
Yeah So what with switching the site to a new host and adding content and then all of life happening, I guess I forgot to update all of you lovelies on what's up with diva-fierce.com. Short version: we're not moving to tumblr. We were and now we're not. Long-ish version: we have a tumblr account and it's updated periodically, but honestly, I prefer this type of a blog format and I could just never fall in love with tumblr, no matter how much it wanted to be with me. I mean, it's cute and all but...a girl just needs that special feeling :). Therefore, diva-fierce.com is on a new hosting home and staying as it currently is. Until a true gentleman comes along and sweeps the Fierce off her stilettos :) ...yeah, right ;) XO!
Welcome to the place where wrestling & fashion join hands. Inspiration. Reviews. Musings. Retros. FASHION. Covering and craving gear to gowns since 2011. May the Fierce be with you! ;) Peace & Glitter!
