November 19, 2009

Here is a Lookbook I found and loved in Nylon Magazine! The  lookbook is by clothing designers Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, creating the clothing line Cushnie et Ochs. These photos were taking backstage right after the designers put on a fashion show at Milk Studios.  The models are straight from the runway….true to life […]

A Little Prince for Your System

November 17, 2009

A random post because today I am in a random mood. While working on my 10 page and 3 page paper at the same time all day, I got an urge to hear and see some Prince music and fashion. If I didn’t say it previously, I am a Journalism and Public Relations major who […]

Final Product: Make-up by Anna Miya

November 16, 2009

Here is the final product for the shoot I did with up and coming make-up artist Anna Miya for her website http://www.annamiya.com !!! The theme for the shoot was Fall with the perfect Fall lip-color. For make-up, Anna wanted the focus of the make-up to be on the lip color. She used dramatic eyelashes and […]

Kelis Lives On!

November 13, 2009

With all of the negative coverage of Kelis, her divorce, and her monetary request from her ex-husband Nas…I really felt the need to help us all remember that Kelis was at one point and still is in my eyes, the shit! lol. I recently saw a picture of Kelis with her new baby on the […]

The Power of Benetton ADs

November 13, 2009

So I wanted to do a post on the clothing store United Colors of Benetton‘s thought-provoking and socially responsible advertisements over the last 15 years. Benetton’s ads are not clothing ads, but instead pictures and photos bringing the ideas of equality, tolerance, humanity, and social wrongs to the fore-front. The shock value and controversy of […]

The Eclectic Closet: Isle Lovelife

November 10, 2009

While searching for and searching through a few requests to be featured in the Eclectic Closet, I had an epiphany-like moment. I was somewhat down, as no one was truly standing out to me (not to say that I didn’t love all the personal style I saw :-)), but it was more so about the […]

OMG Lady Gaga

November 10, 2009

I am still gaga over Lady Gaga. Her team, Haus of Gaga, and her are the quintessential combo. Please check out her new video for Bad Romance! The style, creativity, dancing, drama…all while standing in a white room is awesome. Lady Gaga is one of the few mainstream artists that is not stereotypical and common, […]

The Sidewalk Runway Part Deux

November 9, 2009

Here is another edition of the Sidewalk Runway! These are photos of people and their personal style on a regular day of work, play, or going out.  The trend-setters in these photos are from New York, London, and other metropolises in the U.S. I think personal style is something innate. It is a personal characteristic […]

Dear Diary, Who Will Inspire Us?

November 5, 2009

Dear Diary, Waking up this morning I felt this feeling of air. Nothingness. Unmoved and uninspired. I sat and thought about the meaning, the cause of this feeling. Then I remembered. Last night I turned on the TV searching for something ”entertaining” that would intice me enough to blog about it, research it, internalize it….yet […]

A Sneak Peek!

November 2, 2009

“I loved this shoot because its energy screamed FIRE. Burning hot lip-color, firey hair, extreme eyelashes, and an outdoor natural setting.”–Fire So I had a little photoshoot with Anna Miya who is an amazing make-up artist! (Be sure to check out some of her work at http://www.annamiya.com). Anywho, Anna asked me to be part of […]
