so last night i bought some simply cute suede boots, thinking depending on how i feel, i'd wear them today. well i'm feeling them today despite the gray, off and on light rain in maryland. i remember biggie schooled me on his life after death cd back in like '96: "... silly cat wore suede in the rain ..." and i quickly learned that it was a no no. but what the hell. i'm wearing my suede boots today. i mean it's not a torrential downpour or anything. i'm such a rebel. so tell me. what fashion rules do you break?
sarah rutson (fashion director of lane crawford) said f it too. check her out in red suede balmain boots. those are the hotness. i'd wear them in seattle and really wouldn't care!
genius of jewelry designer, alyssa norton, to take the traditional indian style - a panja is a bracelet and ring combined by chains - and make it mainstream. "historically, jewelry has been about adorning the whole body - not just wearing necklaces and bracelets or earrings," she says.
i'd so rock this. (a cheaper version of course; the one above is $805). would you?
i've learned not to expect much from the bet hip hop awards but i absolutely love the freestyle cyphers. did black thought kill it last night or what? philly philly! mos def an enimem ripped it too. watch:
slide on over there to see the rest of the pix. rocsi irks me to the point where i usually have to switch the channel. but the spread is cute and the interview is pretty interesting. and of course i'm loving the acid washed shirt she has on in the above picture.
no, really, i do. and you'll never believe it. i'm having more problems with my laptop.
and i'm putting them on blast. toshiba! don't buy a toshiba laptop.
first my keyboard abruptly stops working. now my laptop just won't charge. cord looks fine but the thing won't charge. so last night, i realize my laptop's been plugged up but not charging. i have about 20 minutes of juice left so i decide to google "toshiba laptops charging problems." and look what we have here. several other folks complaining about the same thing.
i'm too through. they'll send me another one. yeh, but in 7-10 business days. bite me.
anyway, why am i sharing this long story with you? you guessed it. i'll be down for the next "7-10 business days" until they send me a new cord.
but my circle doesn't exactly get into halloween. i told someone i hadn't dressed up for halloween in my adult life and she gasped. no really, she gasped. she looked at me as if i was such a goober.
can someone please have a halloween party and send us an invite? i want to have fun with it. me and tye could dress up as ike and tina. or something. i always said i'd dress up in something sexy. like a sexy cop or something.
i swore obama would be the #1 costume pick this year. but i'm sure mj has him beat. i'd rock this one:
from party city ($39.99) minus the soul glo jheri curl.
j (alongside a rod's honey, kate hudson) cheered on the yankees at their game the other day clad in his old school/new school cazal's. love it. cazal's remind me of my childhood so much. i was a little younger than the generation that rocked them but i always admired my older cousins and the rap dudes who sported them.
want them? you may be able to swing the $500 for them over at cazal-eyewear.com. style 607/doubledown
