Nicole and Harlow

Sooooooooo cute!!!! It made me smile this morning!!

Happy Hump Day!

Oh Tyra!

This is from the daytime Emmy's this past weekend. I didn't post it sooner, because I had no idea what to say............I still don't. I would love to give some cute, contructive tip on how to fix the little detail which made this awful. But, that little detail is not so little at all. It's more of a complete, all emcompassing flub. Besides looking like a giant bowl of monochromatic oatmeal, she's doing it in a really bad, lace front wig (in an even worse color).

Please don't misunderstand, I LOOOOOOOVVVE me some Tyra "smile with your eyes" Banks! She beautiful, and smart, business savvy and an inspiration to women with "real" bodies. But man if she didn't miss the mark with this one.

Ms. Tyra,
Next time, forget the eyes; SMILE WITH YOUR OUTFIT.

Yes, yes.....them. Well they never really went away, but if they had; they'd be back! And our fav accessories hook up Fred Flare, has em' (well, not them, but their brooches, lol). Anywho, the pixel heart brooch that sales on the Dee and Ricky site for $65, is on Fred Flare for $20!!!

A few more morning laughs

This woman is celeb STYLIST, Rachel Zoe! Bwaaaahahahahahahahahahah. You've got to be kidding me............... This print is entirely too large to be used in this quantity on such a tiny chica. She looks like she is being swallowed by a tablecloth and it's scaring me. Anywho, for a quick fix: remove the sleeves on these overpowering frocks. The contrast between the high neckline and bare shoulders would have made the vintage motif look a bit more modern and added a whole lotta sexy to this otherwise homely get up. SWEET!!

AANNNNNNDDDDDDD the ultimate laugh this morning, and quite possibly the comedic climax of my day................ Soulja Boy called Ice T the forefather of his nuts!! LMMFFAO!!!!!!!!!!

For the record, I am "Team T" all the way on this one, but that Soulja Boy is def hilarious.

Randi Astrid

The more dedicated, the more medicated. Ya dig?

This is REAL!!! Like fa real, fa real. It's on his album and the video (which is the epitome of all things hilarious!) is all over MTV. Love this dude!

Just a gigglin,

"Jew Hating" T-Shirt

It was brought to my attention that L.A. based streetwear line, Freshjive, has come under fire for a few of their more controversial designs. The design at the center of this controversy is below. The image is of three, armed, Palestinian, child soldiers with a stylized version of the word "victimized" underneath.
I rarely discuss my political views on this blog (catch me in person, and you may get an earful), but I had to put you up on this one. Here's the deal; Any child forced to fight or affected by war(regardless of its' premise), is a victim. This design, is in no way, glorifying their role or belittling the opposition. The message behind this design is the advocacy of peace. As a matter of fact, Freshjive also has a design with the Star of David motif and "Peace in the Middle East" message, is that "Palestinian hating"?
Kudos to Freshjive owner and designer Rick Klotz for designing what and how the fuck he wants. You can read his remarks here. Also, BUY THE SHIRT!! I think Urban Outfitters is stocking it now.
