H.E.R. Makes Her Debut on Blue’s Clues!

​Over the weekend, I was watching Blue’s Clues with my kiddos and I saw a purple dinosaur and heard a familiar voice. I thought to myself that sounds like H.E.R., the amazing singer songwriter. Her voice is distinct, sultry, and smooth enough to be identified and not mistaken.  I did some research as found out yes, it is H.E.R. H.E.R. was making her animation and acting debut on Nickelodeon, on a Blue’s Clues episode entitled Blue’s Clues & You! H.E.R. plays a Tyrannosaurus rex that is the first female singer, songwriter, producer, dancer. actress of prehistoric times. This was a really fun and cool episode to watch. You can watch some of it for yourself here. https://youtu.be/4ZyWD1qTmRo Photo and media credits:  Nickelodeon

Monday Morning Moto: Maxwell

DO you see the pic of Maxwell in a Gap Ad from what I hear was the Spring 2008? Collection. No matter how recent the picture is, the picture is a good one. CLEARLY! Moto is short for motivation and this should do it for you ladies. Fellas, this is how you wear a touch of wrinkled clothing...notice the front tail on his button up, not exactly pressed or too neat. An effortless fashionable look. Sweater, over top of a button up-collared shirt and distressed jeans. I LOVE IT!! Click the image for a more detailed view.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Collection Preview in Video on Saks.com!

Saks Fifth Avenue has presented a Marc by Marc Jacobs 4 part video series with parts being played by the band ChairLift. I think the videos are short and creative and display the Marc product very well. I also think using the bad to play the parts as well as soundtrack the shorts were a good idea!

Jay-Z on October XXL Cover In conjunction with the release of his 11th solo album, The Blueprint 3, Jay-Z is gracing the cover of XXL magazine for the publication’s October issue. Speaking with XXL’s Special Projects Editor Bonsu Thompson, the self-proclaimed, “God MC” delves deep into many hot topics currently buzzing around him, including his mega success, BP3, jabs at his new singles “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)” and “Run this Town,” his tenure as the president of Def Jam and life as hip-hop’s ultra businessman. Check out a few excerpts below. CRITICISM OF “D.O.A.” “I’m not hating on young people. Like, when people say that, I’m like, What are you talking about? It’s just stupid. I’m not hating on young people… I’m not Bill Russell, [saying] Michael Jordan ain’t shit. I’m saying Lil Wayne and Kanye are like LeBron and Kobe. My job as someone at the forefront of the game is to leave it in a better position than when I came in. Same way that Russell [Simmons] left it to me. ’Ca

Fashion Tips For The Day!

Courtesy of Rainbowshops.com Okay, bargain shoppers, Rainbow is a decent place to shop on a budget for trendy items and quick draw pieces. Rainbow is guaranteed to provide you with a decent selection of items and the latest trends, for a very acceptable price. BUT, beware of a few things when you shop in this chain. A realistic assessment of what you are buying will boil down to three things: Shelf life of the item, quality of the item and how the item feels when you wear it. Shelf Life How long has this item been in inventory? Check the item color out from the top all of the way down to the bottom hem. Is there any discoloration? If so, it has probably been in inventory too long. Search for another choice. Quality Check for all of the buttons, clasps, zippers, seam thread, straps and rack location to rate quality. Most good quality items in Rainbow do not go to the Clearance Rack. Also, if this item is too good to be true for $5, it probably could well be, too tight, or un

CONVERSATION ANYONE?

Who ever coined the phrase "what goes around comes around?" Well, it couldn't be anymore further, from the truth. NOW, only centuries later the famous jeweled bib necklaces once worn by Cleopatra herself have been modernized for today's fashionistas, in a "round" about way. Question? Can we agree that wearing stones and metals that do not necessarily weigh a ton (but look exquisite) is a fashionably CAPTIVATING move ? Of Course! An effortlessly shiek accessory to add to your everyday wear lineup are bib necklaces. In unison say, "Conversation Piece!" Here are a couple of styles to get your creative juices flowing...

Don't Be Afraid to Rock Vintage!!

Vintage can sometimes be a very difficult style to rock. When wearing vintage, there is a fine line between pulling it off successfully and looking like you just stepped out of a time capsule. The way to wear vintage successfully is to, match vintage items, with modern items, allow to them work off of one another and be comfortable when wearing it. Top Shop's Fall Collection has made retro rewind style pieces very accessible for the upcoming season, but feel free to shop Goodwill, Salvation Army, Value Village, Vintage boutiques, etc for real deal vintage. Purchasing some will give you a sense of owning a piece of history.
