CBS Detroit

By Edward Cardenas

DETROIT (CBS Detroit) – Susan Murphy wants to bring her love of reading, classic works of literature and spending time looking over various titles to a new bookstore on the Avenue of the Fashion on Livernois in Detroit.

Murphy is bringing Pages on Livernois to northwest Detroit this fall, fulfilling a dream.

“Reading books really impacted my life early on. I would like to give that experience to other people,” said Murphy. “I think a brick and mortar store will bring books to the forefront.”

The approximately 1,200-square-foot bookstore, which will be located on Livernois south of Outer Drive, will be located in the former Hunter’s Supper Club, on the south end the U-shaped building on Livernois. It will have access to a courtyard in the middle.

Michelle Obama’s Secret to Paying for Stylish Wardrobe Revealed

Good, I feel so much better about my Target/Old Navy/Forever 21/H&M wardrobe!

Black America Web

Ever wonder how Michelle Obama is able to make an affordable fashion statement with her stylish wardrobe?

First, let’s cut to the chase. For all the haters: the taxpayers are NOT footing the bill.

Other than that, the answer is as classified as a covert military operation overseas. Although first ladies are expected to dress well, the Associated Press reports they don’t receive a clothing allowance or a salary to help pay for their clothing.

In its quest to find out who pays for Mrs. Obama’s wardrobe, the news organization referenced the adjusted income for the Obamas last year, which amounted to $481,000.

This year alone, she’s ripped the runways of three high-fashion runways, was a first-time attendee at the Met Gala and Cannes Film Festival, and graced the glossy pages of a few fashion magazines. Can you keep up?

At 18 years old, Kendall Jenner has quite an impressive portfolio, and it’s only getting bigger with her latest gig, a feature in the June issue of Vogue Paris. We first learned of her shoot earlier this month, and now we’re finally getting a glance at the feature lensed by Patrick Demarchelier.

In one shot, shared by momager Kris Jenner, she stands in between two other models, their hair side-parted and slicked back and arms crossed as they all serve fierce face and stare beyond the camera.

In another, Kendall and fellow model go militant, wearing uniforms of matching pleated skirts, gloves and caps.
