Finding My Way…

I’ve been blogging for almost two months now and I must admit that I love it. I love what I write about but I think that in these early stages I should tweak my model. I want this blog to be the best that it can be and encompass all of the things I love and would love to write about. So, with that being said, I’d like to include more posts about beauty, film, television, and art. In essence I see this going from just a fashion blog to more of a culture blog.

With this new focus I will be changing the name of this blog, taking it off the wordpress servers to it’s own domain. Get ready for more posts about what is going on at the wonderful museums in NYC, street fairs in Brooklyn, and the beaches of the Hamptons.

Fashion TV: Louis Vuitton Commercials

I know I’m late on this but below is Louis Vuitton’s first television commercial ever. All I have to say is where are the bags?????

And while we are on the topic of Louis Vuitton, do we really need a specialty line from the rap star and super music producer Pharrell Williams? Pharrell, you’re cute but please… PLEASE!

STYLE ICON: ERYKAH BADU


Her album is out today y’all! I’m really feeling this new song by Ms. Badu. If the first single “Honey” is any indication of the rest of the album then I’m sure NEW AMERYKAH, Pt. 1: 4th WORLD WAR will be a huge hit. The music industry so needs it right now. The video is a refreshing entry in a sometimes formulaic scene. Some thought definitely went into this.

Erykah epitomizes urban chic. Funky purple lips, flowing hair, mod t-shirts, and funky leather jackets are truly trendsetting.  Whether it is with a brightly colored gele wrapped delicately around her head or a huge Angela Davis Afro, Erykah captures the best in individual style. Support recording artists…pop on over and buy a copy. Check her official website also.

STYLE ICON: Rihanna

rihanna  

She’s a Bajan beauty direct from the parish of St. Michael, Barbados. Some have said she’s a Beyonce look-a-like, but not anymore. Because of the angled, jet black bob and more recently a Twiggy inspired do, Rihanna single-handedly has all women running to their hairdressers with pictures from magazines and computer screens.

With her success in the music industry, Robyn Rihanna Fenty is an in-demand superstar.  But even at the young age of 20, she is a fashion trendsetter.  With each passing photo spread she becomes more and more fierce!

I like her new songs and believe me they get heavy rotation on the radio. But my favorite, by far is her first song, “Pon de Replay” where she stayed close to her West Indian roots. Big up to the Bajan massive!
