BN Collection to Closet: Jewel by Lisa | JBL in Essence Magazine’s February 2012 Issue



One of our new year’s resolutions is to revisit our favorite BN style features. BN Collection to Closet is back with a piece from Jewel by Lisa‘s “Vintage Love” collection.

TV presenter Catt Sadler has rocked JBL pieces several times on E!News. In December 2011, we spotted Catt in this dazzling mini. To ensure that her look was season apprporiate, Catt paired the dress  with black tights and black patent pumps. Cute!

In other JBL news, we opened up our February 2012 issue of Essence Magazine (the one with hot couple Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union on the cover!) and what did we see inside?

Face of Africa winner Kaone Kario in a fashion spread shot by Marc Baptiste. The theme of the shoot was the “white shirt”…what was the first look? A crisp white shirt from the Gap paired with bejeweled Jewel by Lisa summer trousers.
