Two Different Looks: One Bag One Skirt!

A handbag is generally an accessory that you wear repeatedly, especially if it is in a neutral color and there are aspects of purse that you just love.

Apparel should be very recyclable as well, as long it is paired correctly and there is a nice amount of time between uses.

Dope: The Movie

The movie Dope will be released in theaters on Friday, June 19th, 2015 and should be BIG!

The "comedy" movie is directed by Rick Famuyiwa and produced by Pharrell Williams and Sean Combs (Revolt) with support from others behind the lens. The movie is about Malcolm (the lead character - played by Shameik Moore) based in Inglewood, CA desiring to go from geek to his true self and the journey that he experiences along the way.

The movie includes a list of other young, inspiring, and aspiring culture influencers from Zoe Kravitz, to Chanel Iman, to A$AP Rocky, to Tyga, to Quincy Brown and others.

Forrest Whitaker will be the narrator of the film and Kimberly Elise has a role in Dope as well.

I am hopeful that this will be entertaining (especially comedic) as well as provide a perception of a youth often not depicted and some reminiscent references to the 90's Hip Hop Culture that youth of today should know about.

This also will be the first movie worldwide to accept Bitcoin - a digital currency for payment!

Hot Pick: Charlotte Olympia Kadinsky

Charlotte Olympia is a designer from Britain with her items hand made in Italy. She is well known for her unique and whimsical design style. A style that can take an everyday item (such as a taco) and turn it into a handbag or shoe print design masterpiece.

The genius and simplicity of her Kadinsky print (from the Untitled Spring/Summer 2015 Collection) is amazing to me. The geometric elements, colors and shape placement of the print is visually appealing. I think the Kadinsky pump or clutch (the flat is a variation of the Kadinsky) are all stand out pieces and if you are looking to make an investment this would be a good one. Items are available through Notable Styles (retailing agent) or Forzieri.com.
