Asics Running Dress

16 April 2008, 19.06 | Posted in Other | No comments »

When me and Samia (god how I can’t wait for her to get back!) went to visit’s Asics‘ showcase a few weeks back, we mostly paid attention to the Tokidoki collabos, but there was one item from the tech line that caught my eye and that was the running dress.

Check it out:

RunningDress Asics Running Dress

A couple times while jogging around the park near my house, I’ve seen Muslim women running in knee-length skirts, complete with head scarves, but that’s not who Asics had in mind when it designed this garment. According to the rep, this “dress” was made for time-pressed women so they could work out at the gym and then run errands without having to change. This would sooooo not be for me, but I can think of some females that this would appeal to.

Kanye: “I was breast-fed too long!”

16 April 2008, 16.53 | Posted in Books, Other | No comments »

While attending the opening night party for the Brooklyn Museum Murakami exhibit, Kanye West was interviewed by New York magazine:

NYMag: Murakami says you’re mostly drawn to his work involving women with large breasts?

Kanye: it’s true. I have liked big tits ever since I was a kid. I was breast-fed too long. It messed me up!”

In which case, we’re dedicating this image to you, Kanye!

B.J. Upton: Possible Need to Draw Back on Hottie Status

15 April 2008, 18.26 | Posted in Books, Other | No comments »

A few posts back, I highlighted a Complex fashion editorial that featured Tampa Bay Rays center fielder B.J. Upton and his brother Justin, who plays for Arizona. I mentioned that given what a hottie B.J. was, I’d be looking forward to watching the Rays compete against the Yankees.

 ComplexBJ3 B.J. Upton: Possible Need to Draw Back on Hottie Status

^^Good looks rating currently in jeopardy

Well last night the Yankees played the Rays and at first it was great because the Bombers were crushing the Rays, but then things started turning and damned if B.J. didn’t help tie up the game with a home run shot in the 7th!

So I’m thinking, maybe he’s not so cute, after all!!

Oak Boutique: Hot Shoe Selection!

15 April 2008, 00.21 | Posted in Shoes, Stores | No comments »

Oak is this quiet, little boutique with one location in Manhattan and two in Brooklyn that just so happens to have a very hot selection of spring shoe offerings that you won’t find being offered by all the on-line, usual suspects.

Here’s a few that stood out to me:

Madonna: Cover of Elle Magazine

14 April 2008, 16.53 | Posted in Books | No comments »

Madonna is on the cover of May’s Elle magazine looking her usual hot and charismatic self, qualities brought to the forefront by Tom Munro’s outstanding photography.

As far as Ms. Ciccone-Ritchie is concered, I have this theory that the more nicknames a person has, the more legendary. In the case of Madonna we have: Boy Toy, Madge, Daisy, Mo, Material Girl, Esther. etc.

I rest my case.

Here’s a taste of the shoot:

Madonya2 Madonna: Cover of Elle Magazine

^^She’s wearing a silk/cashmere sweater by Halston; a patent vinyl bra by Deborah Marquit and those ultra-sick boots? Why Miu Miu of course!

And on another note, but still speaking of Elle magazine, by now I take it you know that Nina Garcia is out from her job as fashion director as Elle. I know there’s a lot of speculation about what happened, but I’m thinking they gave her the shove ’cause she just didn’t have time with all her other Fashion Runway obligations to do her job right! All that gossip being said, the very latest update from MediaBistro is that she’s still in talks with Elle to keep up some sort of mutually beneficial connection.

Late-breaking update: I am so on it! I was just reading this snippet on PerezHilton:

“She became too busy with Project Runway the last year to two,” a mag insider tells us. “Nina had been spending about 8 hours a week on average actually in the office and working, and had her 2 assistants doing all of her work for her.”

Did I not say that exact same thing??
