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....
