Beyonce keeps dropping this awesome tour merchandise. Her album sweatshirts and tees and now the “Flawless” flannel from the second leg of her world tour is now available to purchase. For $75 you can cop it HERE, and stunt all over town (and social networks) in it. I’m sure were going to see TONS of people rocking it. Are you copping?
I woke uh like dis……I woke uh like dis……
Melody Ehsani is dropping her first apparel line this Thursday on her website and LA flagship store. With her super popular and fun jewelry line and funky Reeboks under her belt, it’s only natural that clothing is up next. In browsing the lookbook the clothing is very much an extension of her brand and will be easy to spot a mile away. There were def a couple of pieces I would like to add to my rotation. Check out my picks below and head to MelodyEhsani.com to view the full lookbook.
Today marks the birthday of Nike’s iconic shoe… The Air Max! Turning 28 today Nike made “air visible” by showcasing an air bubble in the sole. With the collaborative efforts of Frank Rudy, Mark Parker, and Tinker Hatfield. This team revolutionized the way we see air. To celebrate this great day in sneaker history Nike is releasing a special shoe for its birthday!
I originally wrote this post back in 2008. I found it today and it’s relevance still holds true. Hope this advice helps!
I think Tim Gunn is a fashion genius, the man knows his stuff and speaks in a way that is appealing to all people. If you look a hot mess he knows how to tell you in the nicest, most intelligent way. The other day I was reading his book, Tim Gunn: A Guide To Quality, Taste & Style and in the beginning he talks about ways to express your like or dislike for an article or collection of clothing. He explains that if you are going to critique something use words that will help you make the distinction between why it appeals to you or why it doesn’t. This is helpful on the journey to discovering what works for you and what doesn’t.
Cinderella got it right. A pair of shoes ccanchange your life. When I get a pair of shoes I love I feel like a new woman. Especially if it’s a pair that gets me excited about getting dressed for the day.
I enjoy meeting new people especially ones who are truly individuals and comfortable with who they are. Rico D is one of those people. Get to know him and his style, passion for shoes and get a heads up on the sneakers you must cop in the Spring.
Who are you? Where are you from?
I am Rico D… Born and raised in Berkeley, CA.
I would describe my style as……
Sophisticated Streetwear… Urban Streetwear… Athletically Street… Ashy to classy.
When you hear “I Am Styling On You” what does that mean?
The term first brings to mind CONFIDENCE. Confidence not only in yourself but what you are bringing to the table and going put on display for the world. The term “i am styling on you” creates a mindset and describes a person that is confident not only in their fashion sense but also in self worth. It’s a lifestyle that we must become devoted to in order to SHINE! in more ways than one.
What Sneaker brands are you a fan of? Why?
Sneaker brands that I am a fan cover many lifestyles and demographics. MY FIRST LOVE AND MAIN CHICK is and WILL ALWAYS BE NIKE! LOL I could not sit here and say that Nike did not spark my shoe interest. 1993 The Nike Air Raid aka “ Tim Hardaway” changed my LIFE!! and a Love affair with sneakers began! There have been brands that have made nice sneakers over the years but M has remained consistent. I think thats what draws me to them. Nike can release a pair of shoes from 20yrs ago and SELLOUT! No matter what is or has been set the set the bar! PERIOD!! lol but don’t sleep on other brands… Adidas, Puma, Reebok, Asics, Del Toro, Timberland, New Balance, RedWing, Converse, FILA the list is LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG.
My style is truly a mixture of several inspirations. Men’s & Women’s high fashion, street wear, movies, rock stars, family members, you name it. So it’s perfectly normal to catch me in sneakers, random Wal Mart sweats and a unique girly purse. I carry my fringed bag ALOT. So much so that it’s on it’s last days. So I am on the market for a new one. No matter what I have on ,my fringe bag gives the right amount of rock star and femininity. It moves when you walk and has a bit of sass. It works for all seasons too! Some may not agree… But to me that’s exactly what makes personal style…..PERSONAL. So in doing my research I found some wonderful affordable and (not so affordable) bags I would add to the wardrobe. Check out my picks below.
