Kimberly and I "met" via Instagram and I quickly fell in -love with her flirty blouses and skirts and the way she personifies a strong woman who is about her business that also likes to keep things all-the-way classy! Check out her interview!
Peace and Blessings,

Whether Kimberly is being a wife, life & style blogger, YouTuber, or corporate professional, her mission is to help women be their best selves and to each day feel confident, find peace in their purpose, and look unbelievably fashionable while doing so!
Brownstone Closets: From following you over the past few months and watching your YouTube show, I would describe your style as "classy lady with the best frilly tops and skirts." Describe your personal style.
Kimberly Dobine: I would describe my style as “Glam Chic”: a modern day version of Diana Ross mixed with Carrie Bradshaw. I am definitely a glamour girl!
BC: A good friend calls you up to borrow the beautiful clutch that you JUST purchased and haven't worn yet. She mentions that she has an event that night and that your brand new clutch would look AMAZING with her dress, shoes, and accessories. She was with you when you purchased this clutch and knows how much you love it. Do you let her borrow it? Why? Why not? (FYI, I'm cutting her butt OFF! She ain't right!)
KD: Absolutely NOT! You will not ever wear an item of mine before me... It's mine, not to be confused with yours... NOPE, NEVER. LOL.
BC: Heels or flats?
KD: Both: heels when I leave the house, flats in the car.
BC: In your opinion, are leggings pants? Do you own a pair, or two, or three? I have had this debate many times, and the answers are shocking!
KD: LEGGINGS ARE NEVER PANTS... they are leggings. Leggings are meant to be worn with longer flowy tops or to work out in. They are not to be confused with riding pants. Riding pants are thicker and of better quality, so you can wear them with a shorter top. Yes, I own a few pair of leggings, but I wear them accordingly.
BC: What's an item in your closet that you just love, love, love? Why do you just love, love, love it?
KD: I love everything in my closet. But I just love, love, love my Versace white pumps. They are stylish, I can wear them year round, they go with everything, and they have sentimental meaning for me because I wore them for my wedding reception.
BC: Favorite season for style?
KD: The Fall!
BC: In one word describe the state of your closet right now. Don't worry, you will not be asked to submit any photos!
BC: I feel like you have a vanity in your home with lots of flowers and perfumes and other fancy things on it... Do you? If not, I'll come to Detroit and create one for you!
KD: I believe in vanities. Yes I have one... but I think I need another soon. I am out growing the space...shocking, right? LOL
BC: What celebrity's style is most like yours?
KD: Tracee Ellis Ross and Adrienne Houghton
BC: Tell us about all the wonderful things coming up for Posh + Popular.
KD: Well, the most important thing coming up is the second annual Posh + Popular Fashion and Beauty Summit! It takes place, Saturday, October 7, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
This first summit of its kind in Detroit, MI provides lovers of the fashion and beauty industries the tools they need to grow a flourishing brand, learn from some of the best names in the industry, and connect with others who share the same love for such an amazing and ever evolving industry.
More than 200 “fashionistas” will experience some thought provoking keynote presentations, live beauty demonstrations and makeovers with some of the best make-up artists and hair stylists in the industry, dynamic breakout sessions, panel discussions, and more! The Posh + Popular brand will help attendees learn the tricks of the trade and will provide resources on how they, too, can become a digital influencer in the world of fashion and beauty. We are bringing girl bosses together for one weekend to connect with and motivate other aspiring fashion and beauty lovers to dream big, and go after the same thing: Excellence!
Aside from that, just continuing to collaborate with brands and other influencers to expand my reach and help others along the way! My main focus is to continue to deliver awesome content via my blog and YouTube Series, Pink Kisses! I love connecting with other women who are relentless in their pursuit of excellence!
