Skull Series: Earrings With Table Manners!!

Skull Series, will be a series of posts that highlight very fashionable items (not only apparel and accessories) that have skulls on or related to them, etc. If you feel a little iffy about wearing skulls, do not fret, a skull image can only take on a meaning that you allow it to have. If you need a reason, Halloween is approaching, when skulls are often flaunted. Also, in this case it's more art than goth, so please do not feel pressured to alter your beliefs. Alexander McQueen is known for his creative, artistic, innovative, semi-risky designs. But I have not seen a designer as successful as him, at having people accept eccentric design. I present Fork and Spoon Drop Earrings, in solid brass and dark silver. Price - $295 . The design work put into these is very intricate. Don't you agree? Check out the logos. I must warn you, I would not try to eat with these beautifully designed earrings, they are for viewing and wearing purposes only!

A Poncho With Edge!!

Patricia Field Calls It A Onesie, Hmmmm....

Earlier this week I made a post educating gentlemen on - what a bodysuit is and requesting that they do not call them, onesies, lol. Link here . Since then, I have discovered that Patricia Field, faithfully calls these one pieces, onesies. As seen here on her site. Do you know who Patricia Field is? Briefly, she is the uber popular, great and talented stylist of the Sex And The City (sitcom and movie), The Devil Wears Prada (movie) and Ugly Betty (sitcom). Google her, for more information. Does that change my mind about the terminology? No. Patricia Field gets a pass, because she is not calling, this piece of fashion, a onesie out of ignorance, there is probably a creative reason behind it. I believe that a tricked out bodysuit called a "onesie" is a lot more marketable, than calling it a bodysuit. But my opinion still stands, guys when referencing this piece, I would love to hear, bodysuit, fall from your lips. Ciao!

Culture & Class Event at Cloud 9 ToNight!! Something New and Something True!

Click the flyer or this link (facebook readers) to enlarge the image for complete details. I am hoping that this event tonight at Cloud 9 ends up being "something new" and "something true". My idea of poets/poetesses, a live band, hip hop artists, a fashion show and after party with one of the best deejays in the city sounds pretty DOPE to me. Remember, Love Jones, and Lorenz Tates rendition of Brotha to the Night? See the video below. VIBE Love Jones Clip "Brotha to the Night" Love Jones Clip Link (facebook users) VENUE And most of you already are familiar with Cloud 9. How often does it lend it's nice, large, exotic atmosphere to an event such as this? Uh-NEVER! LOL! A lovely reason to attend an experience what it can offer to a more cultured event.

Bodysuits: Fashion Lesson For The Guys!!

I must put an end to guys using the term "onesie"! LOL! The fabulous one piece items that have been seen on the backs and bodies of Beyonce, Rihanna and Lady Gaga, should NEVER, EVER be referenced as a "onesie" again! Onesie's are for babies and they are made by Carter and Gerber! The grown woman version is called a bodysuit, one-piece, romper (if it has shorts) or leotard (if you are old school). Guys, come on now, get it together and by the way, visit the American Apparel site ...often, and you will understand that there is a difference between the two. CIAO!!
