Ni$$as in Paris


Kanye West, designer debut was both a success and a failure. Done the right way was his ability to market himself to the fashion community and draw the attention of notavble designers including DSquared2's Dean and Dan Caten, Olivier Theyskens, Jeremy Scott, and the Olsen twins seated front row. He also had the right personnel strutting the runway, shout out to Chanel Iman, Izabel Goulart, Kloss, and Anja Rubik. He had far reaching concepts that pushed the envelope in terms of creativity in women's wear. What he scored low on was execution as many of the clothes were ill fitting even on the stature of models. The "Ye" collection did not seem altogether cohesive having a sparse color scheme, and lacking wearbility with jersey shore style plunged necklines. The highlight for me was definitely his play on texture and of course I'm a sucker for shoes so I did enjoy the furry stilettos! Overall my grade is a B- with aspirations for next year and hopefully Ye adding some skilled designers to edit his vision.

H&M in review



This is one of my favorite pieces from the Conscious Collection.



Do your self a favor and trot yourself right on down to the nearest H&M to get a piece from their conscious collection. The looks are clean and finished plays on white. Worn casual or dressy my fav pieces include the euro white blazer for the gents and the ultra cute twiggy hemline mini dress for the femininas. Happy Shopping!

Local Diggs: Martha's Outfitters

Nestled on Washington, DC’s busy urban corridor of 14 and U Street  Martha's Outfitters is  definitely a hidden gem. Traveler’s beware unlike most DC thrift stores Martha’s Outfitters is offering  premium labels like Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs for below retail prices, wait no thrift store prices !!! Yes if you are shocked and in disbelief I dare you to explore the racks filled with many of today’s essentials needed to make your wardrobe trendy and hip at recession friendly prices!  Not in the market for new threads ? Then you still need to visit the store for their eclectic selection of home goods, so either way making the trip to Martha’s is a win win situation. Not to mention the proceeds  benefit a good cause, aiding the struggles of the homeless community.

Martha's Outfitters, our community thrift store and clothing distribution center, provides free and low-cost clothing, linens, toiletries, books and children's supplies to those in need.
