KimK Breaks Down her Love for Menswear

kimkfront KimK Breaks Down her Love for Menswear

At Kim Kardashian’s blog, she breaks down her love for menswear and features herself wearing a Michelle Mason (above) vest that she’s particularly fond of. I like menswear, too, but to be honest, I don’t think this look works for everyone. Kim is small and with her super-womanly boobies this proportion works for her.  For a tall, practically ta-ta-less person like myself, this vest would make me look masculine and I don’t know, just weird. Conversely, my legs are long so I could work men’s pants all.day.long, which might be a tougher look for Kim to pull off. So it goes, ya work with what god gave ya.

On another note, I haven’t tuned in to the new episodes of “Keeping up with the Kardashian’s,” but the recaps the girls do on her blog are pretty funny and there’s plenty of talk about their fashion choices, including a crack from Khloe on how her dress looks like it’s from Forever21!

chuckswinner Converse Chucks Contest: We Have a Winner!

We asked readers last week to send in images of themselves in a pair of Chucks to win a free pair from the Converse Rock ‘n’ Roll series (available at Journeys). We had a very tough time deciding between the final two, but we had to give it to Kimberly, who had the moxie/style to pair pearls and a formal dress with customized Chucks (with a call out to our very own Brooklyn no less)! Congrats Kimberly–you rock!

 Furry Converse All Stars

At this point I don’t know if Converse can do anything wrong,their designs teams must be really busy…Sneaker design does not always need to be groundbreaking sometimes sleek, understated  and practical is enough.The fur lined converse All stars ,with a suede toe represent the perfect winter sneaker if there is such a thing.Available at Luisaviaroma

Converse Chucks: Rock ‘n’ Roll Aint Dead

16 October 2008, 20.39 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Music, Sneakers | No comments »

This whole trend of icnoic rock bands as a hot fashion graphic flew right by me and I didn’t even realize its existence until my vist to Magic in August. It still has me confused to be honest, but okay. Are people that fed up with rap music or is it just the yearning for days of hedonism gone by? Looking back with longing at the years when people were getting laid on the reg and folks got sloppy in bars rather than wrapped further tight in Starbucks? No idea, but I do think these Chucks riffing on sexy motherfather Jim Morrison are cute:

There’s more rock bands in the collection, including Grateful Dead, Black Sabbath, The Who, Ozzy and Pink Floyd, which you can all buy at Journeys in November.

There’s a pair of lows from the same series on the other side that I like even more…
