To incorporate some of those qualities but make it your own...with that you can't go wrong. It is okay to take inspiration from fine and performing artist. It is not okay to down right jack someones swag. That is not only wrong but its TACKY! Ciara, get it the fuck together dog!
It's Almost 6am, and I've been awake since 11am Wednesday. I started working with this clothing line as a designer so, a lot of my time is being dedicated to that. Which is super cool, and I am 75% happier than I was last week prior to this engagement. At night I spend my time designing my own line, and I got really into doing this tank and look at the darn time. Anywhoo, today I have been looking at a lot of female street wear lines for inspiration, as well as do's and dont's. I applied to work for MTTM, and didn't get the position, so this may be a biased post/critique. MTTM falls short in my opinion at being too plain for street wear. The whole idea of street wear is to be bold and make a statement. The name Most Official Bitches should carry the Most Official Shit. MTTM is known for making some bold messages like "Other Bitches Ain't Shit" which is dope, but its almost 20% of the words and 80% design. This seasons look book is not all that hot, not the best setup and styling. Their shop section which flows like a look book, has a plain looking chic who isn't as cute as Tabitha. It's just all wrong. However, MTTM seems to collect more sells and is respected as one of the best female street brands. I do like the hoodies and sweaters for the spring, but not much else. I don't look at this season and go WOW! I'd pick Hellz-Bellz over MTTM any day. Because the sayings like "fuck off" are just as in your face as MTTM but the graphics are aesthetically more pleasing. MTTM is just super plain. With the economy in this slump, and as a consumer, I would like to see more uplifting powerful messages and graphics coming from MTTM. The designs from the first two seasons were dope, and the collaborations are always on point, but what is a line if you can't stand alone on your own? Ehh...STEP IT UP MTTM or STEP DOWN! Below are a few pieces from the Spring 2009 Collection
Leading the Street Wear in first place should be none other than DimePiece !!! As a Graphic Designer and Artist what I look for in street wear brands is their reference to art (eras and/or artist), the overall theme of the line, and the styling of the look book. I believe that Dimepiece is ranking number one for spring 2009! The graphics are super fucking dope! I am super excited, and I plan on coping a few things! I LOVE IT!!!!!
I am so excited to hear this album! I know it is going to be dope. Hilson is not only a singer but also a song writer and belongs to a collective group of writers and producers called "The Clutch" She wrote some Chart Topping songs, "Runaway Love" (Ludacris Ft Mary J.), "Ice Box" (Omarion), "Take Me As I AM" (Mary J), "Give Me More" (Britney Spears), and "Red Light" (Usher), just to name a few. Can you just say WOW. K Hil, is that Bitch! For a sneak peek of what Keri Has been working on download mixtape here, mixed by DJ LISSAMONET! Its so dope! Please come out and support Keri, she deserves it. I am so glad we've got great new artist like her emerging from the drought in R&B/POP!!! KERI HILSON IN-STORE SIGNINGS!!! In A Perfect World . . .

Media Take out is always saying that Ciara is trying to be like Beyonce. I never believed that until I saw this video! From the sunglasses, to the earrings, the catsuit and the lighting! It says Lets go "Kitty Kat", in your "Freak'um dress", I think I am a "Diva"!
Her blonde hair pics are the most recent, and although im a STRONG "Blonde's Have More FUN" advocate, IDK how I feel about her as a Betty. But nevertheless, I think they make a cute couple. You can usually tell when people are good for each other,,,they make good music together! That's the expression right?? Well check out The Dream ft. Christina Millian-AMAZING, Kanye West cover. Click on the title of this post to download or watch above. I like it! And i think she sounds wayy better now! She dipped it low & picked it up slowwwww, but now she's back =] Go girllllll!
Okay, I am a big food connoisseur/consumer/critic/binge eater, I love food so much, I put eating above almost all tasks in life. I live to eat. I love all types of food, I am a fan of mostly all shows on the FOOD NETWORK, I enjoy conversations about food, I mean anything under the sun about food, I love...but Ladies and Gents, this here website, makes me want to become not a vegetarian, not vegan but an air-ar-tarian (one who eats nothing, just breathes in air) It's that serious. There is no way in hell someone could find joy in eating fried bacon, with chocolate sauce, mayo, sausage and 2 pound ground beef burger on white bread, YUCK. Like this is the nastiest food site I have ever ran across, and I swear, I am not eating anything else for the rest of the day. Just take a look at some of this filth on the site. THIS IS WHY YOU'RE FAT!

This is the type of shit that will get bitches beat up in my book! I know in relationships when things go sour the first thing you may want to do is run and tell your friend whats going on, you may want to seek advice or maybe just someone to listen to your problems. But being paid to publicly embarrass the father of your kids for money and a shot at being famous is triflin'. The bad part about this entire situation is that 50 is embarrassing the "baby mama" and she doesn't even see it. All she saw was a free trip to NYC, and a Fur Coat. Where in the fuck is the loyalty? No matter what she went through with Ross, there was no reason to congregate with the enemy. 50 is not her friend or a friend of Ross. She knows that he is beefin' with her baby daddy so why in the fuck is she stating all of his business in such a "matter of fact" manner? Clearly the bitch doesn't care! She wasn't seeking advice, or pleading for Ross to come back to her, she isn't hurt, she is just broke and wants some $$. He moved her in when she got pregnant, so he isn't that bad of a guy! She didn't explain any wrong doings of Ross other than low monthly child support (what's new) so why is she going in on him to no other than "ruthless throw shit it your face 50"? I can see her wanting to talk to her friends or Ross' friends but not 50 of all people...like I can't say this enough, its just so wrong!!! At the end of the day, when she looks foolish, and is on that plane back to Florida, arrives with an eviction notice on her Miami home, the first person she will call is 50 who will probably laugh at the bitch, then she is gonna call Ricky Ross and I hope he has enough since just to walk away, not help the bitch and let her fend for herself. By no means did she do this to help anyone out but herself! This woman is ruthless, and I'd be upset to have her as a mother, its not only going to affect Rick Ross but his kids, which are her kids. What a stupid ass bitch!! 50 is wrong too, going so low to seek out all his baby mama's. I really don't think anyone should really care, they're baby mama's for a reason, not wifey type...so who should care? I am rethinking this whole post, it's sorta worthless to even put up...but heh' I am going to do it anyway! Watch it...I want to know your feelings about this!
I've recently been coined the term PreTTy.PepperMinT.Princess by a friend of mine & the name has caused my princess senses to go crazy! Researching my princess peers unveiled some interesting news. OH NO! There has never been a Black princess from the hundreds of Disney character's made over the years. Disney's first Black AMERICAN princess is causing controversy already! The Princess & The Frog has a main character, Princess Tiana, voiced by Anika Noni Rose of Dreamgirls. Most of the rest of the characters are black as well, [Oprah Winfrey voices Eudora & Terrance Howard voices James]; all except the prince. Prince Naveen of Maldonia is voiced by Brazilian actor Bruno Campos and is suppose to be black, yet various Disney supporters say he looks more white than black. Some say the black community should be happy we finally have a black female princess and others think the interracial-looking pair is too much for kids to handle. I grew up loving heroines like Mulan [asian], Pocohontas [native-american], Jasmine from Aladdin [East Indian] & of course Ariel [mermaid?? lol]. I am personally not offended by Disney's portrayal & being that I am of the lighter skin complexion for the black population, who's to say Princess Tiana just isn't into lightskin guys?? I MEAN IM JUST SAYING. Not all black people are dark skin! & Not everyone is on their Keri Hilson "brown-skin poppin"! We need to embrace this black oriented Disney movie and also realize the bigger picture, this is the first AMERICAN princess as well, whether black or white. I will definitely support this movie & advise you to do the same! Relase Date: sometime in 2009. Click on the title of the post to view The Princess & The Frog movie sneak peak!
LIKE WHAT IN THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH HER!? She sort of reminds me of Whitney Houston the Crack Head edition. What happened to the cute roller skates and the soap? Maybe all that damn hair color is shocking her brain. I know Lil Wayne is from Outer Space, but where in the fuck is Nivea From? What is higher and further away then space? Nivea I suppose!
As we get older, I thought we were supposed to mature! -_- Lil Wayne and Nivea at The 51st Grammys...I love Wayne but he looks A MESS! Lil Wayne and Nivea at her Birthday party Last Year at Club Noir in Atlanta
I know ! I've been MIA with the posts!!!,,,but what a better way to start!!! Im in California & got hit with the LOVEbuggg!!!! Im staying in Carson, right outside of LA. I've been here since March 6th and my host Shannon has taken us everywhere! [Meaning me and my 3 friends] I'm having a blast! Im from Queens,NYC; so I'm use to SEEing tourist, not BEing one!!! The things I've seen since my childhood days on 90210 & Clueless just don't compare! Cali is great. I'll always be a New Yorker at heart, but Cali can DEF qualify as my 2nd home! The nightlife is LIVE. The first night we went to Club Element & ran into Shane Sparks hosting a performance for the Strikers ALL Stars! [ABDC] YO: Why is Shane like 5 foot 2??! ANYwho, I visited the classic places like the Walk of Fame, Sid Grauman's Chinese Theatre, Kodak Theatre! & Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles [YUM!]. Even to the smallest places like Lucy's Mexican Drive Thru [remember from Baby Boy, when Taraji Henderson found the condoms in the backseat and screamed on Jodi, "GIMMIE MY SHAKE!!!", yea there.] & Crenshaw High School [Love & Basketball use to be my favorite movie! =). ]
Saturday night was more chill. We went to the Comedy Union for Bill Bellamy's taping of the auditions to his show 'Who's Got Jokes!' Some ppl were funny, most were not. One guys main joke was "Don't you think it's wrong to drink Capri Suns as an adult?? It's just one gulp & it tastes sacred like UNICORN pee." [,,,,silence,,,crickets in the audience] & moving on! There was a noticeable change in the way ppl party! Its more about what car your driving TO the club & not what you have on or how you look IN the club. Strange! Sunday night we decided to hit a celebrity hot spot called MY HOUSE in Hollywood, which i find to be such a FAB name for a club, so I thought we were riding in style in my homegirls Fire Red CLK coupe,,but to my dismay there were chicks driving Bentley's, Rolls Royce's, Maserati's, Lambo's Aston Martin's, one Red Bugatti [oo la la]; Range Rover's seemed to be the most popular choice. Miles, the little brother from Moesha came thru in a Maybach. MAN!! Not one hood Dodge Charger in sight! lol. Almost every club has its own parking lot with $15-20 valet which i find so helpful.
Besides the nightlife, the shopping is AMAZING. We hit downtown LA which has all the things NYCs Canal Street has, except picture Mexican vendors instead of Asians! They even had a knockoff Forever 21, straight off the truck! I found the only thing to buy here are the $5 shades which were so dope. The real shopping was on Melrose tho! OMG i felt like i was gonna spend my life savings & almost did! Wasteland is a thrift store where you can find anything designer! The prices are far from cheap tho! Some other cool stores were Rojas & TeenageBillionaire. Just as we are leaving Melrose to head back to the truck, we bump into Jay Leno! So of course being the ham that i am, i had to get on the cameras someway somehow! He was looking for talent on the streets of Los Angeles and he found it! I made Shannon sing bcuz she does it well & I was her backup dancer, along with our other friend Shonda! We didnt do much in the background but we sure did fake it! Then Leno steps in on our moves all off beat! LOL It is suppose to air Wed March 18th so hopefully we will make the cut! There is so much I can say but I'll end with this::::California is quite the cool place. It's not as warm as I had hoped =( but i am still having a blast! I'd be such a "Spoiled Little LA Girl" [Kanye's voice] if i lived here! NEXT STOP! ViVa LaS VEGASSSSSS! *
Everyone who knows me, knows I don't wear Jeans or Pants. I do own a few pair but I rarely wear them. I love dresses and skirts...no jeans, not even jean skirts, a possible cropped jean jacket but that is it. What does this have to do with Dr. Martens, you ask? I don't wear those either!! Seriously once in a blue moon I may find something that I don't like but if a new style or color change comes around, I might slightly be interested. In this case I am, I can see myself rocking these $111.00 dollar pair of Dr. Martens not with jeans no way, but a damn dress, and some frilly socks. :) I think I am going to get them.

This Evening I deiced to check HypeBeast. I haven't been on HB in such a long while because I know I will be tempted to buy something. I ran across these super dope Lollipops by Massimo Gammacurta. I believe they're only available at runway shows for each Brand. I'd love to get my hands on one. Hands yes, not mouth, because I would save it forever.
I needed some inspiration like this to keep myself motivated in times of economic crisis! I interviewed with Nina $erafina over at Worth The Weight In Gold and I'd like to thank her very much for the post, it's really great, and I think you guys should check it out, she has an awesome blog! You can read the rest of the interview on her blog.
