McQueen Oxfords

First let me start off by sending my condolences and ackoweldge a great lost to the fashion world.... A man who expressed much creatity and innovation... designer Alexander McQueen...
Despite how is short life ended, his legacy will definitely live on....

With that said...
peep the McQueen Oxfords for men.

Usher is looking quite HAWT....
Usher was spotted rocking a pair of Alexander McQueen Brogue Oxford shoes ($645) in tinted white. This Alexander Mcqueen shoe features white Brogue detail leather with a weathered/ombre effect look, putting a modern up to date feel on the old traditional shoe
PS. Speaking of Usher did anyone catch Usher during the All-Star game opening... highly disappointed.... I really wanted him to come back in the game and kill it... but I think he lost is swag! SMH

Fellas- start to broaden your fashion horizon.... oxfords are dope for the spring... pairs up with some chinos... very cute!

D.I.Y Proenza Schouler

Hey ladies-

When I first seen the Spring/Summer 2010 Proenza Schouler show I was amazed.  The tomboyish/girlie pieces and the modern day tie dye is SICK!

When I came across WhoWhatWear daily's article on how to D.I.Y (Do It Yourself) I was like wow- I have to do this and put you guys on....

I thought this was amazing becuase to bless your skin with the beautiful PS diggs will run you an equivalent price tag of your rent... NO BUENO!!!  You do not have to pay alot to look fabulous! 
Check out a step by step guide to creating your very own Proenza Schouler inspired tie dye top!!!


-Rubber Gloves
- Tulip Tie Dye ($5) in Black, Blue, and Yellow
-American Apparel Sheer Jersey Long Sleeve Tee ($26)

1. Lay the shirt down on a flat surface. Insert a piece of cardboard in between the layers, so the dye does not bleed through from the front to the back!
2. Spray sides of the shirt with the Yellow fashion dye creating two outer panels of color.
3. Spray the middle section of the shirt with the darker contrasting color (in this case, the Blue fashion dye). It's ok if the color overlaps a little bit we think the bleeding looks cool!
4. Let it dry flat (for approximately thirty minutes; it's ok if it's a bit damp, as it will help the color bleed) and repeat first three steps on the backside of the shirt.
5. Once it has dried, gather the shirt in very thin vertical sections, grabbing from the neck and the bottom of the shirt (to create an accordion effect!)
6. Finally, make thin horizontal lines with the Black fashion dye (with tip applicator) across the gathered accordion surface using the tip of your tie dye bottle nozzle. Repeat on the sleeves.
7. Again, our master crafter recommends you wait for the shirt to dry for three days before washing, according to the directions on the tag. For peace of mind, wash it in like colors or all by itself first!

Witht he spring upon us... This is something I'm definitely trying- especially with different colors as well....

What do you think?  Are oyu gonna D.I.Y ????




Hey readers-

OMG can't believe I have not updated the blog in a month! :(
I've been receiving alot of text messages, BBM's, emails, facebook messages, and twitter messages asking whats up with me....

Well alot have been going on in my life... one of the biggest changes is I moved into a very chic super duper cute new pad.  You can imagine how exhausting and time consuming getting settled in is.

I'm not done with every room, but I'm getting there..... So before you guys cuss me out.... I have a reason.... :)

Whats up with everyone? How was everyone's Valentine's Day.  Mine was fabulous and relaxing.  Saturday I went out to a Thai restaurant and to the new bowling alley in Williamsburg Brooklyn- didn't do any bowling because it was a zoo- but we posed for a cute Vday pic...

Yes your eyes are not playing tricks on you- I'm going a little longer than usual... I'm so tired of the short hair cut, I actually miss my long locks- I'm growing back my hair.

Saturday I went for the all  black sexy look with my trustee cropped leather jacket, long stacked pearls, black bootcut jeans and my Bebe black and white oxford/wing tip 5inch lace ups.  Modern classic look....

Sunday hung out in the house shopped for a couch and made a great meal... Some may say that is boring but I was very pleased by my valentines day!

Quick question- Im eyes are beginning to get puffy- anyone know the best product to get rid of that... that is sooo not brining sexy back... lol

Tell me about your Valentine's day....

I love the leather jacket and the heart bag! :)


The White Leather Jacket


I want to start my next purchases for the new year with a white leather jacket.

We killed this summer with the classic black leather jacket- but going into Spring try a white leather jacket!

All black fit pair with a white leather screams chic and cool!


Urban Outfitters

Check out these killer LV sunnies---

White shades are soo hawt for the warm seasons... I like these

You know I get weak for some dope Sunnies...

Spring Trend: Navy, White, Red, & Stripes

Hey Guys...

Winter is here and live, however in the stores you might start to notice Spring collections through out your favorite stores.  It's time to quit with the winter shopping.... and start to look towards Spring because it's going to be fun!!!

When you are sitting down writing out your Spring shopping list.... Aim for nauticals.
This might not be such a surprise to some people- like myself... I heart nauticals.  Nautical inspired colors, stripes, accessoies are my go to for Spring... but it seems like the nauticals have took its turn and its all over this Spring.

Remember Chanel Resort 2010 collection--- filled with Nauticals---- and you guys know how the high fashion world works....Our Fashion High ends set the tone and everyone else follows suit....

I had a dream I was wearing a stripe shirt lastnight- I thinking about fashion- even in my sleep...

I would pair this long sheer cashmere stripe sweater with some dope wide leg white pants, or even white skinny jeans and red ballerina shoes...

I love the sleeve details in this red stripe tee.... I would pair this with some denim and white loafers... Im not a fan of white shoes... it all depends on how they look.

Stylistos... I like the stripe pocket long sleeve tee- I would definitely go J.Crew flow and pair with some white chinos rolled up at the bottom- dont knock it til you try it!

The racerback tank is very cute and can be paired with a great school girl blazer and white shorts... too cute

Fellas- a basic sail boat graphic tee is great with a destressed denim jacket...

To get great nautical style- try some dope dresses and pants

I LOVE THESE DONNA KAREN STRIPE WIDE LEG PANTS.... SOOO DOPE! I would keep it simple- great sheer tank and school girl navy blazer and cute fashion flats.... preferably red.

This is sooo cute- spotted it on Polyvore. So girlie.

Great dress to spend a nautical spring day... you can dress this down with some white low top converse sneaks to dress it up with a red clutch and some killler sandals.

Great nautical inspired sweaters

Cavi has some great cardys, this stripe navy and white cardy is great fellas.... you can do this real cute to execute great nautical style.

I heart the texture for this sweater creating a nautical stripe effect.  Great for a spring night.

I love guys in stripe hoodies... they seem so cool and laid back.

To get a nautical look you can opt for some nautical inspired footwear... go for stripe sneakers like converses, or solid blue sandals.

Like footwear- you can change your fit from boring to nautical with stripe handbags and totes..

Accessories are a great way to sport your nautical style.... like boat pendants, red, withe or blue watches, and anchor earrings.

When I think about nautical stripes and nautical style.. I automatically think about great sail boats and fishermen... Fishermen have great nautical style too... and they dont even know it... lol

I love this navy blue sailor coat... It's soo girlie! :)

Lastly.... Vacation is the GREAT place and time to sport your nautical style....
Dont forget your shorts and sunnies

These Chanel sunnies are an aquired tase... lol... but imagine with a great white vintage-like swimsuit or a navy bikin with an whote organza cover up and straw bag strolling the beach.... YOU SEE IT... HAWT!

White aviators are a no-brainer... these Careras are DOPE!

Salior shorts and denim cut offs are the best.

With these great nautical inspiration picks... hope you guys enjoy shopping for your stripes....

Do you like the Spring nautical trend???
