All Things Animal

Animal Prints are the way to my heart. And, thanks to their newest selection, Nasty Gal Vintage currently has my heart under lock-and-key. You have to be careful with animal print, it can get gross if done incorrectly. But the styling on these shots is perfect, everything looks edgy and sleek.

I've been having lustful dreams about the above button-up neck scarf. Must haves.

RAY RAY ON DRUMS from TONE on Vimeo.

I found this great video of Raphael Saadiq reminiscing on his glory days with Prince and Sheila E... and Sheila E's sister.

Raphael's boyish charm is still so endearing. He's a beautiful thing to watch.

It's Getting Complex

Do I even have to say anything other than "I'm in love"?

Theophilus London for Complex Magazine

They Go Hard

Since winter is pretty much just starting... (snowstorm, wut wut!) it might be safe to buy these beautiful Crooks & Castles winter wear items. I am a sucker for either comfy or streetwear items with panache, and these fit the bill thanks to innovative detailing and cuts-- that cropped poncho reminds me of a sweatshirt you'd make it home when you were feeling crafty with your old Champion $20 from Modells. Cept it's so much super nicer. Yeah.

Loan me money, por favor? Kthanx.

You can purchase all of these pieces at Karmaloop.

Naughty Boy

My obsession with this song and video is frankly, appalling.

Wiley is a legendary Grime producer and British rapper who apparently, is also REALLY into creeping. Because this new track he's released with Emeli Sande is all about him creeping. Seriously-- "See a new thing/Start talking/Get aquianted/Start walking/That's when I start promising the world/Even though I got a woman at home". The dude is a player and, thanks to Emeli's voice, I am loving it.

This Woman Did Her Work!

Oh, did you hear that noise during Maxwell's performance? Yes, yes. THAT noise. The noise of panties dropping nation wide. Was I the only one that needed a cigarette after watching this man perform live and sound almost BETTER than the record? I mean whatever Roberta Flack was there, yay, wooptiey-doo, but all I was doing was staring at this brotha in the suit.

Let's just say I had lovely dreams.

Some Stuff I Am Pretty Much Loving

It's been a really long time since I typed anything of real relevance on this blog. I've had the ideas stored up but literally zero+ time to get them out. And it's a shame. Because it's not like I'm tootin' my own horn or whatever, but some of those ideas are really quite rad.

So, to recap: I have a surplus of awesome ideas brewing, right? And now, it's Thursday at 12:32 AM and I actually have some time to get the ideas out! But in comes the other problem... I'm really just too damn tired! So let's make a compromise. I'm just going to do a brief list of things that have been rattling around in my brain lately. Some things I like (Law & Order: SVU). Some things I love (Brunch at Clinton St. Baking Co). And, a lot of things that are over 140 characters and can't fit on Twitter.

Thing #1!
Toro Y Moi is a 23 year old guy from Columbia, South Carolina who is actually named Chaz Bundick. He makes a lot of cool lo-fi music with a slight soul-ish/traditional pop underlying feeling. Listening to Toro Y Moi doesn't make me feel like a jerk on Bedford at all, not even in the slightest.

Thing #2!
Cropped Tops. Even though I haven't done a sit-up in about 3 months (shhh! don't tell!), I really like these whimsical little numbers. They make me feel all Clarissa Explains It All on one hand, and on the other hand, the new set of high-fashion crop tops make me feel like somewhat of an adult. Plus, you can wear them everywhere, even work if you play your high-waisted jeans and under-garments right!

Thing #3
Denise Huxtible. Real talk, when am I NOT obsessed with Denise? She's basically everything I'm hoping I'll just magically wake up as one morning.

Thing #4
The Catcher in the Rye. Holden Caulfield 4eva, and no Phonies allowed while yer at it!

Thing #5
Sarah Morrison's TrendMill. She owns a Rugrats Sweatshirt, a Vintage Betsey Johnson Dress, and Prada heels. I can haz hero?

That Party Lastnight.

Another shot I missed of Asher Roth's sweetie.
Couldn't give two shits about whiteboy, but I've found my new girlcrush.
Lovin' the do.

M.I.S.S x Nike

I was backlogging through an image folder on my hard drive the other night and found this. Does anyone remember this editorial my internet fambo M.I.S.S did with the Urban Outfitters Nike renewal Tees?

Simplistic Beauty.
Favorite. Editorial. Ofalltime.

LaDanian Tomlinson Can Get It

Is "LT Slide Electric Glide" the best thing I've seen in my entire life?

Yes, yes it is.
LaDanian Tomlinson is officially in heavy rotation.
And thanks to those kicks he's rockin-- he can get it.

Theophilus London "Humdrum Town"

Holy Theophilus London, I need a cigarette! My musical amor has finally dropped his first official video for the amazing remix of "Humdrum Town"!

Favorite images?

*photoboxes of long lost loves*
*music videos on the telly-vision*

Does it get any better than this? Probably not, at least not for quite some time.

I'm a Lady

So yeah, this is going doing soon and it's going to be a "hay hay hay" type of night! Amanda Blank. Maluca. Anton. Probably super secret special guests.

I anticipate a lot of bud, beers and spandex. And probably empty bottles of weave glue on the floor-- it's all about the beauty products. You know, just the usual for a Friday night. You should most likely get tickets soon or else you'll be stuck on the corner with all the Tigerasos...

She Smashed the Homies!

Danger is officially the poster child for "motha-fucka-I-is-straight-crazy".

I think I'm in love with a pretty mixed chick!

Even the New York Times AND Susan Sarandon think so.
