To be or Not to be: Air Yeezy


They are scheduled to be dropped tomorrow. Racked Mag is saying otherwise. It's Spring 09' release date has been pushed back to Fall 09'. I wonder why. I got a tweet from @LouisVuitton_US .. saying "Kanye West for LV sneakers in stores tomorrow"; followed by a link to their website.

Hmmmm, who to trust? No telling who's behind LV's twitter feed. This actually is the 1st mention of Kanye's sneakers I've heard about for Louis Vuitton PERIOD. I guess we won't find out until tomorrow.

RIP: VIBE Magazine

This cover looks nothing like...


This cover

The VIBE cover is supposed mimic Janet's Rolling Stone cover. However, this "Slorelebrity" couple's Vibe cover comes across to me as tasteless. They make me sick. I love them separated, hate them together.

Does Vibe folding surprise me? No really, I don't remember the last time I flipped through it's pages. Think about it, these sorts of publications are no longer relevant. Why pay 4.99 for something you can see for free on the internet? VIBE isn't the 1st nor will it be the last.

I doubt this video is real. You know how much money cell phone companies make because of water damage to phones?

Dailies



Here are pictures from the Apollo Theater the night Micheal Jackson passed. I wasn't there but I heard the aura was phenomenal. Instead of everyone sitting at home depressed and crying they went to 125th and celebrated his life with his songs and dance moves.

Designer Spotlight: Ken and Dana Designs


Ken Leung and Dana Chin - This duo designs an array of accessories from your neck to your wrists. Their designs with houses two labels (b-side and BYLU) have been worn by Beyonce and Keri Hilson.




B-side is what i'd like to call the "L.E.S." part of the collection. It reminds me of Hip-Hip and is more affordable with a funky mixture of graffiti prints and geometric shapes. It's recommended to add a splash to that simple black dress.













BYLU comes across to me as "Upper East Side Chic". BYLU is B-side's classical music's sister. It's a bit pricier with it's handcrafted diamond ring lily pads and gold tear drop earrings. Pieces from BYLU's collections are the perfect addition to that show stopping dress.









These accessories are definitely unique. Prices range from $200- $1,000. With Rings and cuff links available for men as well.


Come out Thursday 6/25/09 6p- 9p for a sample sale of BYLU and b-side accessories

Slorelebrity

I'm adding this new section to my blog called "Slorelebrity ."

Slorelebrity (slor-le-bre-ty) (n) an A-Z list celebrity who does everything possible to get publicity/attention. Slore derived from the compound word - "slut/whore" and -ebritity from the word "celebrity." Hence the word "Slorelebrity." Outlets to display their slorelebrity behavior include but aren't limited to personal blogs, twitter, leaked sex tapes, reality tv shows and semi shaved heads.







Exhibit A
: Perez Hilton
Occupation: blogger
Recent slore-itry behavior: Claims to have been attacked my Will.I.Am from the music group Black Eye Peas
Form of PR: TWITTER











My 2 cents

What I'm not understanding is - Why are you contacting your twitter followers to call the police? Get off Twitter and call the police for your damn self.

So, you were assaulted; did you deserve it? This is a tricky question because I, just like Perez have a big mouth. However, I'm FULLY prepared to back up everything I say. Perez needs to man up and take responsibility as a "blogger." If you talk shit in the playground you better be prepared for a fist fight.My assessment of the world for the 20 something years i've been living is people only age physically not mentally. A majority of things will always resort back to high school. My suggestion to you is enroll into some kickboxing classes and be ready for whoever is dislikes your opinions... I'm just saying.

Chris Brown "Smash"




Before hearing this song- I became perplexed by the song's title. Why on earth would you name the song "Smash?" With the trail, allegations, photos that have surfaced why would you name a song after anything physical? Actually name a song after any "verb" period? Is this a publicity stunt?

After the song - I became even more perplexed. What's up with your producers/writers dude? Are they no longer available in large quantities as they were before? The track is GARBAGE. Yea, I said it. You mean to tell me you don't have a little base in your voice after all you've been through in these recent months? I mean, you attempted to push Rhianna's head through a closed window for Christ's sake; and you still sound like a 13 year old? Don't use Micheal Jackson as a role model please. Let the Peter Pan syndrome go.


He's next title of his song should be "Sorry, Women" .. because we all know you did it.

Fashion Funny: Karl Lagerfeld


Looks like Karl Lagerfeld has a sense of humor..

Here are a couple of his quotes ...

Only the minute and the future are interesting in fashion -- it exists to be destroyed. If everybody did everything with respect, you'd go nowhere.

Forget about the good old days! ...If u think it was better before, then u might as well commit suicide immediately.

The purpose of life is life

Anorexia is nothing to do with fashion... and in today’s world, many people take drugs, not only models

I lost 200lb to wear suits by Hedi Slimane

I live in a set, with the curtains of the stage closed with no audience - but who cares?

Vanity is the healthiest thing in life

Shit. I worked sooo hard on "Jay-Z VS. Auto tune" piece just to see it disappear into thin air. I don't even have a copy for my personal records. They removed the material because the post contained a copyright on a a Hot 97 interview. I felt like a criminal. I had to swallow that huge piece of humble pie and I guess I've learned my lesson ... or now.

Little Bit Drake ft. Lykke Li ((lyrics))

Hands down I'm too proud, for love...
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh oooh

[Lykke Li & Drake]
Hands down I'm too proud for love
But with eyes shut it's you I'm thinking of
But how we move from A to B
It can't be up to me
Cause you don't know who I was before you
Basically to see a change in me
I'd be losing so I just ignore you, yeah

But you're on my mind, my mind, my mind, my mind, my mind

But maybe in time, in time, in time, I'll tell you I'm...

[Chorus]
A little bit, a little bit, a little bit in love with you
I guess that I'm a little bit, a little bit, a little bit in love with you

[Drake]
I know you told me break their hearts
But it's you I wanna take apart
And I will never ever be the first to say it
But still I...
They know I...ah ah ah

[Lykke Li & Drake]
I would do it
Push a button
Pull a trigger
Climb a mountain
Jump off a cliff cause you know baby I love you
Love you a little bit

You would do it
You would say it
[ Drake Lyrics are found on www.songlyrics.com ]
You would mean it
Then we could do it
It was you and I and not only I...

[Chorus]
Think I'm a little bit, little bit, a little bit in love with you
But only if you're a little bit, little bit, little bit in lalalalalove with me

[Drake]
I hope they never find out what they already know, know, know
As soon as its official we'll have to let it go, go, go
So we don't confirm the fling
Keep avoiding all the questions
You could teach me many things
I'm just scared to learn a lesson

The pressures on
Both hearts beat like a metronome
Both in sync like a Justin song
Feels so right but it's just so wrong
I wonder where my world 'bout
Where niggas that I know tryna talk my girl out
And her friends say I ain't the one to go for
She just get jealous cause you always get approached more
Oh well, tell her fall back caught up in some more shit tell her call back
Tell her get a man that ain't cheating on her ass wit a girl that I know yeah tell her all that, that
And as for you I think I know you're the one
The closest I've come
I'm probably...

[Chorus]
A little bit, a little bit, a little bit in love with you
I guess that I'm a little bit, a little bit, a little bit, a little bit in love with you

Chloe Sevigny in ELLE Magazine




Styling done by Kate Lanphear

She said the look she was going for is "80's glam." She hit the nail right on it's head with these somewhat recession friendly pieces. The prices range from high to low; mixing Ralph Lauren, H & M, Strawberry, New York & Co. with Oscar De La Renta, Alexander Wang, Louis Vuitton and a splash of Christian Louboutin. The first look with the Banana Republic with the pinstripe blazer is my favorite.
The location of all these looks located at Elle.
