Pick Me Up In Your Vans!

The first image is an image of whats to come in the Fall/Winter 2012 Collection of vans sneakers. You like it? Kind of tribal and textured, a little different for vans.

The second shoe is the Stage 4 black sneaker which is available now!

The two sneakers are both vans but have very different sneaker styles. Which van will you drive? A Spring/Summer or a Fall/Winter 2012?

The Super Bowl is not the only thing shaking up the city this, week. The Hyatt Regency workers will be picketing on February 3rd for their right to unionize.

The Right to Work initiative is important and will offer some workers the right to be protected by a union that will bargain for fair treatment in the workplace in regards to wages, benefits, etc.

Was The French Elle Fashion Writer Out Of Line?

Word around cyber town is that Nathalie Dolivo fashion writer for French Elle stated that African-Americans did not step out of our streetwear fashion style until the Obamas came into office.

Hmm, thats interesting? Well what actually do you mean, Nathalie? That Sammy Davis, Jr wore streetwear back in his day? Or that Lena Horne's classic dresses are equivalent to todays Coogi brand?

It is obvious that French Elle magazine was running short on articles because this lady wrote from an uneducated, predjudice and undesirable perspective. A perspective that I would not expect from a reputable magazine.

What do you think Notableistas and istos?

2 Reasons That I Am Slimming Down!

I am on a mission to change my relationship with food. And there are many reasons why I want and need to be healthier. But I must admit that one of my reasons is so that I can fit into clothes like these and not look like a stuffed burrito! Lol.

I love the casual and dressy look of a t-shirt with leather pants. And the mix of the tuxedo jacket on top of a striped form fitting dress. Wait until you all see me. Wooow!

The war on a healthier lifestyle continues.

Hot or Not?!?

Presenting the Pansy colored Ugg classic short boot. I think this is a cute color and brings life back to the over played Ugg boot trend.

An Investment Piece!

This 5th Avenue Designs by Veronica "International Treasures" Lizard Cuff is a GREAT investment piece. Items like this should be purchased even if you do not know what you will wear it with at the time. Its just one of those pieces. It has texture and it looks very high end. The price is $27.08 and was originally retailed at $95. Need I say more??
Pair this item with an after 5 or classy chic look and it will more than double your style quotient. Trust me.

The Difference A Colored Belt Can Make?

Can you tell the difference between image 1 and image 2?

Well, the first image shows a brown belt and the second image a green one?

I hope that you can see the way that the green belt brings out more of the colors in the outfit? Which will in turn bring out more colors of your personality. :-)

I purchased the green belt about a month ago at Goodwill for $.50 just because I know the importance of having variety.

I did not have any parts of this look together when I bought the belt.

The point is, anytime that you can pick up a colorful item, for a cheap price, get it. Always keep an eye out for color.

There is always a use for color in ones wardrobe, especially colorful accessories.

Wish List Item: Hermes Belt!

Wow, I have pretty much been coveting the H hardware Hermes belt for about 5 years now. Why?

1. A belt is an essential piece to your wardrobe.

2. Anytime that you want to make a plain outfit feel major you can add a fancy, notable accessory. (in this case the Hermes belt).

3. Its luxury and its Hot!

The Hermes belt in black and blue is shown above. Its calf leather, non-reversible with gold hardware and its on sale.

Doesnt your favorite blogger deserve one? :-)

As you can see countless celebrities have been seen rocking this popular belt. Nicky Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Drake, Fabolous and Kelly Rowland.

Keep The Gloves Out!

Its a sunny 52° day in Indianapolis today but Im sure, there will be more glove wearing days to come.

In the next few days I will continue to work with the touch screen compatible gloves and the fingerless mitten gloves alternating the use between the two deciding which pair that I prefer.

Ive heard that the isotoner touch screen compatible gloves cost close to $20 and the pairs that I am using are half that cost.

You may want to keep a close eye on the blog to make sure that you dont miss the comparison post.

Look Ahead To Warmer Weather!

Some of us have been hit with the big chill over the weekend and being cold is rarely a reason to celebrate fashion.

But I think that I know how to cheer you up!

Lets begin to think about upcoming warm weather travels. Spring Break, sunny, or maybe even a cruise where you will become one with the ocean currents.

Even if you're not travelling soon, its fun to think about warm weather travels and their fashions anyhow.

Versace for H&M is releasing their Cruise Collection on-line and in select stores January 19th. And Im sure that it will be a blow out like the previous collection. Do you like what you're seeing so far in the attached photos?
