BRIGHT IDEA!

SURPRISE!
Chanel has definitely put the icing on the cake with this "bright" innovation. The design of the shoe is not the greatest but the technological innovative part is what makes it so genius. Funniest thing, the shoe is only 2,200 buckaroos. Not only is the price very good for the ladies but the heel can be used for more than just one reason. If you happen to drop your keys in the dark, switch on your heel light to locate your lost key!
STYLE PROFILE: What would you wear with these dope girl fresh heels?
Of course you must not forget to accessorize with jewelry: pearls perhaps, to keep the Chanel spirit alive. Do not over due this outfit now, because you will take the attention off the shoe. It is very easy to do too much and not do enough. Keep it fresh and fun!












The model in the image is wearing a Jen Kao "FLO-ROADSTER JUMPSUIT WITH A COWL NECK/HOOD"










Black is the color available at http://www.funkylala.com/ for 1,895.00

So, Rhianna is such a risk taker and trend setter! Thanks to her own personal style "likes" and LYSA COOPER! Furthermore<>







Highlighter green/yellow Giambattista Valli dress on the red carpet at BET Awards was "iconic."





Who wouldn't want to receive mail when it looks like this!

Mr. Postman please send me YSL! Yves Saint Laurent (You're So Lucky in other words)
Hey Fellas don't feel left out just yet we got a treat for you tomorrow.......STAY TUNED!

YO YOU GOT IT!

YOU GOT IT WHEN?
According to the dictionary, style: is a distinctive manner or custom of behaving or conducting oneself. Everybody has "style", but everybody is not "stylish." When you are "stylish" there are some rules that you live by everyday. If 4 out of 5 statements are true then you have passed the "stylish" test!
1) If you wake up in morning and your outfit does not necessarily reflect the current temperature outside than you are stylish.(fyi: you put on vintage romper shorts when it is below zero degrees)
2) If you attend an all black party in a highlighter blouse, high waist mc hammer pants with BLACK and gold thrift store clip on's than you are stylish. (fyi: wear color when you attend themed all black or all white affair)
3) If you can wear something from the "opposite sexes" section of a store and get both men and women to drool over you and your outfit than you are stylish.
4)If you can wear what you wore from the club the previous night to work the next morning and switch out your shoes and jacket than you are stylish.
5) If you walk in a room of celebrities and get "get best dressed" than you are not just stylish you are a STAR!
OKAY
WE WILL ELABORATE AND DEFINE, THESE WOMEN OF TODAY'S, FASHION STYLE!
CAN YOU GUESS WHO EACH OF THESE WOMEN ARE?




(A) JANELLE MONAE

(B) RHIANNA

(C) KELIS

TERMS TO "DRESS" BY
THREADS: pieces of garments to make an outfit look ravishing or dope.
SAFE: is when you put an outfit together that says so much about your personality and does not set you apart. You don't get best dressed you get "safest dressed"! BORING
GARBAGE: a horrible outfit or garment that has been constructed and worn very poorly. Garbage could be used to say that what you are wearing is not flattering to your figure.
FINISH:the end result of the surface of a mass produced garment- some finishes could be acid washed<>
BLIND HEM: blind hem is a manual (by hand) or machine sewing technique where the hem of the garment is turned up and stitched in place to where it is basically invisible from the right side of a garment.
DARTS:refer to a wedge shaped tuck or pleat on a construction pattern that is used to shape a garment to better fit a persons body. A dart is usually removed by cutting it out or stitching it closed to help with shaping a garment usually around curvy areas of the body to prevent fabric gathering or bulkiness.
FLATTERING: means to bring out positive areas of the body and hide the less secure areas

WELL SINCE YOU KNOW THE MEANINGS NOW....WE WILL USE THEM TOMORROW TO EXPLAIN SOMEONES STYLE AND WHAT THEY ARE WEARING.

WHICH GROUP OF CELEBS HAVE "STEPPED UP" TO THE CAMERA OR "FCUKED UP" IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA!
STEPPED UP
These four ladies definitely gave y'all some flavor and personality on the red carpet. Not only did they wear a variety of THREADS from shorts/panties to gowns but they "worked it!"

FCKUED UP

Kid Rock definitely is standing next to someone whose outfit/assemble is GARBAGE!
