Style Go or Style No?

Dakota Fanning, a very talented young Hollywood actress, just recently turned Sweet 16 and from what I hear, she is loving it. Dakota's style of course has evolved along with her maturity and more pics of her style can be seen here.



But the internet is buzzing about Dakota's 16th birthday casual look where she is wearing the UBER popular ripped leggings, a camel colored cashmere mini, a white 3/4 length sleeve button down, an American Apparel black scarf, Balenciaga bag, gold watch, Doc Martens and a fun girl tiara.

How do you like Dakota's look? Would you wear it, why or why not? What items would you take for your own wardrobe?

I personally think this is a fun and youthful look for her and it's very appropriate for casual street wear.

Usher's Fashion Faux Pas!!!

I dont know what convinced Usher to wear leather capris, leg warmers, leather forearm shields and a leather, 6 pack armor, lace up the side "top"(?) but uhh, being married to a stylist, Im sure normally alleviated the previous times, there could have been a bad wardrobe selection made by the mega star.

Seeing as, now they are divorced and I assume he didn't make time to "hire" another qualified stylist, he jacked his whole image, at the All-Star Weekend in Dallas this past Sunday. What are we going to do with Usher? There is something really wrong with what's happening in the industry, right now and I don't know, how much worst these things are gonna get.



**CONFESSION** I dated a guy who wore capris once (approx 6 yrs ago), but hey they weren't "leather", he did NOT have leg warmers on with them, certainly didn't wear a fitted top with it AND he was a model, soooo he knew a lot about fashion? Im just saying, my ex's outfit didnt look like U"r"shers.

Pyramid Love!

Pyramids have been around since the B.C. times. They are rich and full of history, culture and where many of today's references and words came from. Some archaeologists and historians still marvel at how foundations built so many years ago have withstood the test of time and the atrocities of wind, rain and other natural disasters. With that said, I think that pyramids, lend something to modern society about foundation, basics and how mastering the basics, will eventually lead to something larger.

Before there was Albert Einstein and popular people that broke down mathematical equations and formulas. There was a society, that knew enough about mathematics and civil engineering to build pyramids that are still standing, tall and even today. So no matter how the world today tries to put a "negative" spin on pyramids and its symbolism, history tells me that pyramids represent, team work, mathematical advancement, creativity, information, people of color and environment friendly architecture. Now check out some of this pyramidal fashion.

R.I.P. Alexander McQueen

To go onto the yahoo home page and discover that Alexander McQueen, has passed away at 40, is such a travesty!! Within the past three seasons, I have grown to love his collections sooo much. His wonderful dresses from S/S 09, blew me away. And his skull artistry on jewelry from F/W 09 were lovely!

All of our stories are written, some with earlier endings than others and although he is gone today, his legacy will live on forever through his clothing and the lives that he has touched. Click here to read more about his story on yahoo. Click here to read more about Alexander McQueen on the Notable Styles blog.

We Are The World Remake!!

The remake of We Are The World, to benefit the disaster in Haiti I think was a BRILLIANT idea. Much love to Quincy Jones for bringing it back one more time.

I hear that Jennifer Hudson, Wyclef Jean, Will.I.Am, Tony Bennett, Randy Jackson (ABDC, American Idol), Brandy, Snoop, Kanye, Tyrese, Pink, Celine Dion, Jordin Sparks, Carlos Santana, Lil Wayne and so many more were in the building.

It makes a GREAT statement, that even entertainers in 2010 can stand together for a great cause!! This is what demonstrates, who the person behind the entertainment persona really is. Not by their lyrics, or whether or not they rock pyramids, or skulls. Remember to define a people, by their actions, more so than their words. A basic principle, that I learned at a young age. Do not speak about it, be about it.

Notable Ones: Tony Dungy



Ever since I was introduced to Tony Dungy, by the Indianapolis (local) media, his work that he performs off of the sideline has been a focal point. I believed him to be a credible, honest, God-fearing, faithful and intelligent individual.

Tony's coaching behaviors even stood out on a national stage, as he brought forth humility, calmness and focus through himself into his actions and post-game interviews. At that time I rendered, what a solid man this is. A man that has the charitable actions to back up the principles and ideals that he "says" he stands for. Even through the tragedy of a lost child (to suicide) his family and him emerged seemingly stronger than before.

Now that Dungy is retired he has been able to be a life coach to some and influence others in a fatherly, wise, missionary type of way, more so than he ever had time to before. The prison ministries, NFL and sports teams all over the nation appreciate and thank him for it. Tony Dungy is well known for his interest and position he took on in Michael Vick's attempt to redeem a football career. Read this article on the New York Times online for more.

Tony Dungy has even penned several books, Quiet Strength (a memoirs of such), UnCommon (how to have a significant attitude and create a significant path). Click here to go to Amazon.com and check out Dungy's books. Tony is an extremely gifted man, willing to put himself on the limb as a moral center or gauge in a place and society where immoral actions and ways are all to second nature. For this, Tony Dungy is a Notable One.

Jump Away The Pounds!

Jumping rope is a form of cardiovascular exercise that can be done daily. And as reports say, most people begin to slack off of exercising and good eating habits after the month of January. Please people don't give up now. Keep striving to change and monitor your eating and exercise habits for life, not just for now, but for life. There can only be so many cheat days a week. And there should only be one of them, lol.

Well priced jump ropes are below and you could possibly find one cheaper than these. Price - $7.99


Price - $12.99

Find a place with enough space, link to some jump rope techniques and get to working. Cheers to being FIT in 2010!!
