KimK: “At Least I Have a Butt!!”

29 August 2008, 15.43 | Posted in Books, Fashion, Other | No comments »

Living doll KimK recently posed for a Radar Mag photo shoot. The theme was the long ago and legendary Brooke Shield CK jeans ad campaign. In her interview with the mag, she gave the best comeback punch ever when she responded to Paris’s description of her butt as gross by panning, "If Paris Hilton thinks my butt looks gross I really don’t care. At least I have a butt." Exactly, Kim! Where did crazy Paris get off thinking that all the world loves a backless wonder?? Cheez!

This story was snatched from one of my new favorite blogs, BubbleGumPonys. Go visit and buy one of her I Love NY totes and check out her awesome self-made manicure.

Vogue Italia “The Black Issue” My 2cents

21 July 2008, 22.33 | Posted in Books, Common Sense | No comments »

 Vogue Italia The Black Issue My 2cents

So Finally after many calls and gymnastics I fanally got my hands on the famed  Vogue Italia July 2008 “A Black Issue”

For as much as it has been a big deal in some sectors like the fashion scene in New York where the issue was Sold Out until it was recently re-printed , the rest of the world might not have necessarily noticed…

Having grown up with an open mind when it comes to color , beauty to me came from places all over the world, there was never a”color of boy”I could not date,  he just  had to not be pierced and tattoed ( hey they had to forbid something!)….Nevertheless, The photography and editorials were great! 

But then again, for a much as I love the idea..I hope that women of any race will not wait for a mainstream publication to feature them to truly feel beautiful and accepted by society…Or is it too late for that?

You can be blue, purple or green ….Beauty is Beauty!

 HSBETTE XCLSV: Michael Venker  X   The KDU !!

Michael Venker a recent Parsons Fashion Design Graduate is expected to launch in Japan Next Month, He collaborated with The KDU on this  Art/lookbook made of Hand stitched 70 year old linen paper with real 24kt Gold and Platinum details..definitely a keeper!!!..when Michael was asked about who his target customer was here’s what he had to say:

"Someone who wants have a good time, and laughs a lot. My clothing isn’t really form fitting, so it can appeal to a broad range of body types and ages, so it’s more of an attitude thing. I think my customer works and plays hard, and has a blast doing both"-

A man after my own heart!!His name will be on all the fashion radars if they are not already…check  after the jump for more Images…

BlackGirlintheCity: It Aint Over ‘Til It’s Over!”

20 April 2008, 02.34 | Posted in Books, Other | No comments »

BlackGirlintheCity is a site you visit when you’ve done all the pretty pictures and you find yourself hankering for something a little more substantial. Words that’ll actually make you think, ya know??

I linked to her hysterical recount of an encounter with a Marc-Jacobs-bag-owning idiot not long ago, but the story I’m linking to here is a little different. In it, she talks about shedding an ex. Like any good writer, she writes in layers and while she reveals what she believes are her own lessons, there’s plenty of space between the lines for us to draw our OWN conclusions.

Here’s an excerpt:

My ex has finally decided to move on.  Good for effing him!  Lol.  We were the best of friends with a strong history until true feelings got involved.  Its funny how people tend to be on their worse behavior when falling or being in love.

BlackGirlOverYou  BlackGirlintheCity: It Aint Over Til Its Over!

^^Dear BlackGirl: He so aint over you!

And as for her comment on Hillary, she said it, not me! And though I gave up using the word bitch as a 2008 resolution, I hafta admit Hill is pushing me to the damn edge!

Still missing you!
