Rihanna's Dinner Look

Rihanna looked absolutely fashionable yesterday as she hopped out for dinner at Da Silvano Restaurant in NYC's West Village. Visit http://www.dasilvano.com for more info on them.

You must admit when it's time for Rihanna to make a RTW fashion statement, she delivers!

The nude is on trend for this season. The motorcycle glove (which I also own) on mark. Then the gray and black color palette using the nude as the punch! Loves it!

What do the Nobies think?

Ciao Loves!!!

If you are a Nobie and are following me on twitter, read my articles regularly or have talked to me in this lifetime via some form of text or email, you know, that I frequently use 2 salutations, Toodles and Ciao!

But Ciao is especially one of my favs to use, because it makes me feel, culturally diverse. Anyway, thanks to Rebel Yell, any of the Nobies can feel free to gift me a gold, hoodie, that says Ciao on it, with a vintage Gucci logo inspired design. Price - $125, not bad hunh?



If the hoodie is a little too pricey, I will settle for the v-neck tee :) Price - $68


Do you like Nobies? Please leave comments.

Trendsetter: Coyon Ford!

Noun 1. trend-setter - someone who popularizes a new fashion, fashion arbiter, taste-maker, role model, a model - someone worthy of imitation;

There are very few people that I, myself would consider trendsetters. This is only because I am usually the one setting trends and the characteristics of a trendsetter are very easy for me to spot.

It is one thing to be different. But if no one is emulating you and this uniqueness that you are expressing, then are you really a trendsetter?

In the case of a young gentleman, by the name of Coyon Ford, he is definitely a trendsetter and his trendsetting characteristics were highly visible, the first day that I met him in 2006, when I assisted his Sean Jean | Parisian | Indiana Black Expo Fashion Show, rehearsal.


Today, Coyon Ford can be known as the same humble spirited, midwest fashion show producer, apparel stylist and extremely talented person that has worked 3 shows for the S/S 2011 Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. The fashion liaison that ran around with Serena Williams, the majority of the day, met Andre' Leon Talley, and was involved in a mix of elite fashion professionals that made celebrities such as, Vera Wang, Kanye West and more only a phone call away.

 Vogue's Editor at Large Andre Leon Talley, tennis player Serena Williams, 
Vogue magazine editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, Vogue editor Virginia Smith and 
creative director of Vogue magazine Grace Coddington 
attend the Vera Wang Spring 2011 fashion show

After talking with Coyon, I found out that he has set a very high standard for himself and he feels that, "competition is not with my peers, I compete with myself". Coyon, feels very blessed, appreciative and grateful to have experienced all that he has over the past 10 years and is looking forward to the projects that await him in the coming months.

The city of Indianapolis does produce the talent to maintain themselves in the big industries, Are You Inspired?

Have You Heard Of Jacob Latimore?

A little over three months ago, one of my connections introduced me to this wonderful kid sensation named Jacob Latimore, by showing me some of his YouTube videos in which he has tons!!! Please link in to his YouTube Channel here to view this child's enormous talent.

At that point, I said to myself, WOW this little one is AMAZING!! There are definitely big things ahead for him in the future. Fast forward to today, one red carpet movie premiere, a deal with Jive Records and a number of studio sessions later, Jacob Latimore is that much closer to introducing himself to you and right into the homes and lives of millions of other Americans along with you.



If you view the links and photos of Jacob that I have placed within this article you will see that this young man works very hard. He is managed by his parents and in that he is being well protected in the rough music industry business.

Lancome`Paris Rouge

This Lancome' Paris Rouge is one of my fav colors to wear right now. I purchased this lip color from Von Maur last Fall and I have probably worn it only three times.

I am getting more into lip color this Fall season because it just seems to do something to my confidence. I have worn this color at least 3 times in the last week and I love it!

Have to stay tuned to the blog to see me in the full lip! ~Toodles

You should choose foods that you enjoy, of course, but you need to include the following:

Vegetables
Three to five servings daily. Try to include one serving of raw, leafy greens.

Meat
Have no more than three three ounce servings a day. Cut off all fat. Try to make two servings of turkey or chicken. One serving of fish a day is ideal.

Decoded: Jay-Z's Book

Initially announced earlier in the year, the cover art for Jay-Z's Decoded has finally been unveiled. Quite the interesting move for the famed musician, Decoded plays the role of exactly what its title suggest, the decoding of 36 classic Jay-Z tracks. For each, Mr. Carter provides his own insight into the meaning behind particular lyrics, and his reasoning for writing them. Hip-hop educational and equally entertaining, the book will be offered in a hardcover version through publisher Spiegel & Grau and in digital form via an eBook and iPhone/iPad app. A release is set for November 16th through finer booksellers, including Amazon, which is now taking pre-orders for the special price of $21 USD.

Quote of the Day!

Remember to take risks, exercise/stretch, make small changes to your hair, makeup, etc and to pamper yourself regularly. With all of the responsibility us women have, the least we can do, is ensure that we stay fresh and rejuvenated on the inside as well as the outside. In doing so, you will feel one and your family, co-workers, associates and friends will share the benefits of your freshness. ~ Nicole McClain

Nicki Minaj And Her Complex!

Nicki Minaj covers the next edition of Complex Magazine! On first glance, I said - Nice, Hot, love the fish nets, pose, sick shoe and the way the bob is hitting!

Then I thought to myself, wait, this entire look is pretty basic. All black, minimal clothing, bra and lycra boy shorts, and an ancient pose, but it still packs a punch!

Is this the return of the core styling rule - "minimal clothing + sick accessories" minus the over-the-top concepts?

I like it! What do you think?

Be A Lady: Wear Wanda Grace!


Wanda Grace is a dress line for the socially conscious fashionista. After reviewing this line more than once, I can clearly see and feel the aesthetic that Laurie Underwood (Wanda Grace's designer) is going for. Soft, fluid lines, colors that vie for your attention, unique draping techniques and body conscious textiles all combine to make up the Wanda Grace dress formula.




Wanda Grace started with one dress creation, designed for a close friend,
and from then on, the rest is history. Wanda Grace is currently a dress shop with an online presence. You can visit Wanda Grace on the web at www.wandagrace.com. Wanda Grace can
also be purchased in her hometown of Detroit, MI at Materialistic Boutique. Price points for the line are average. Everything costs under $100.

What do you think of Wanda Grace?

View Atlanta's Media Infused Presentation!!

To my readers everywhere, especially the Atlanta area, go by and view this very creative, artsy and media infused presentation, entitled, "Convergent Frequencies".

Each evening at dusk, media artist and designer Matt Gilbert will present his new video inspired by the modularity of the brain’s vision system and the similar separation of color and movement in digital video. It splits images of the local area and musical performance into two parts-movement and color-investigating them as independent components, and recombining them into a new video work.

In short, three local artists will reinvent the empty lot with three large shipping containers using images, film, and sound, while simultaneously celebrating the surrounding neighborhoods.

What: Local artists Matt Gilbert, Matt Haffner, and Nat Slaughter celebrate the grittiness of Inman Park, Little Five Points, and Old Fourth Ward with a mixed-media installation using steel shipping containers.
Why: Film images, string instruments, wheat paste collages, and field study audio recordings flood your senses.
When: Sept. 17th - Sept. 19th, 6 p.m.-midnight.
Where: Krog St., at Lake Ave., Inman Park. Admission is free.

Tiny Robot Restaurant and Bar (London)!


 If you happen to be in London, it is a must that you dine at the "newly opened" Tiny Robot Restaurant and Bar. It is located in the famous area of Notting Hill on the site of famed brunch spot Harlem (and little sister to Clerkenwell’s Giant Robot).

The cuisine is Italian-American and the vibe is, New York diner meets a semi-rural feel. You will definitely feel exclusive while eating here, because there is a Members Only Bar down in the basement, which sounds great and exciting.
