Camoflage is the new camoflage - there is no alternative. Even though it cycles to throught the fashion scene over and over, but this time its hear to stay Though, it may seem easy to mess it up, camo is actually an easy staple. Call me crazy, but think about it.
Its a striking pattern, as natural as animal print, and based on nuetral earthy tones that will compliment anyone's skin color. Here are my favorite pics from shoes and acessories to jeans that are worth the splurge that will be bring an extra edge to your day to day style. Pair these puppies with nude shoes and a red lip and you'll turn heads.
For those interested in Kanye West's next move, it looks like it's back to fashion. He teases everyone to a new line of jeans in collaboration with Jean Touitou by redesigning kanyewest.com to just feature the detailed picture above.
One more Kanye tidbit: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak spoke to ABC about 'Ye's signed Apple mouses by him and his late co-founder Steve Jobs (nice gift, Kim K). Here's a few of the quotes, and a look at the gift below:
"I signed the mouse in front of him. It's really rare, both our signatures in matching form."
"It was an excellent conversation for about two hours and he finally got into his grandiose business ideas. I have some comments to give him. I have been thinking about it since the meeting."
"Visualize yourself in a certain way [and you can accomplish anything]."

The Finals are upon us! And if you want to be the ultimate fashionhead amongst your friends for the next couple weeks, look no further then the fresh new hat collection release from Just Don. Designer Don C combines his signature python snakeskin with the classic NBA Finals logo (seriously, that cursive is instant class) and between the various colors and years on the side patches (also a nice touch), you can cop a cap for your favorite Finals. Plus: a couple of vintage Bulls Finals hats are included in the collection. Both are fresh must-haves if you can put down the dollars. The high-end luxury sportswear goes for $400 only at RSVP Gallery.
Not technically in the Finals Collection, but included above, are three of the freshest new releases from Just Don that'll go great with your Grape Js. The black/dark purple Bulls, a Charlotte Hornets lid (the Hornets are coming back!), and a Charlotte Hornets-themed Bulls hat, with the extremely nice touch on the red underbill. These three are variations of the '87 draft caps that a certain first round draft pick that year made most famous...

Epitome Boutique Inc. celebrated their 1 year anniversary with an exclusive "sip and shop" soiree at its new location in Chicago's versatile Bucktown area. Some of the city's most valuable movers and shakers were in attendance to help 'turn up' with the fabulous owner, Laricia (la*ree*sha) Chandler. Rapper Mikkey Halsted, VH1's Basketball Wives Malaysia Pargo, nightlife promoter Anthony Lindsey of A&O promotions, Pastor Charles Jenkins and the 1st lady of Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church and Theus Griffith of Litehouse Whole Food Grill just to name a few. Being the consummate hostess, Laricia aka "FabRicia" kept the Grey Goose and Cherry Noir flowing and everyone's hands filled with her personal picks of chic designs.
Conveniently located right off the expressway, every females dream closet sits along North Avenue and Hermitage Street. The boutique's fly black and white glam decor includes rich leather and crystal tufted shelf displays, spacious well-lit dressing rooms and tons of all the proper accoutrements to complete any look. The store is simplistic but ritzy without being overdone or overwhelming. Quickly rising to social media fame via MySpace, Twitter and Instagram with her followers craving to cop her swag, FabRicia decided instead of just having a website that she wanted a boutique as well and did just that. But don't get caught lackin' and miss out because pieces go fast!
"I put things up on Instagram and it's gone in 2 hours! I have to really keep up the inventory a lot. I order new stuff every week because a lot of times people order stuff off the website or call over the phone to order and we're shipping it out faster than people are able to make it in!"
- Laricia Chandler
Without further ado, some of the dope fashions I peeped during my visit listed in order of flexin' probability from "Oh yeah, I'll kill that!" to "Oh fo sho, I’ll totally merk that! U.E.N.O.!!!" When you think of Epitome Boutique...picture Nicki Minaj meets Marilyn Monroe: gutsy and sexy with the panache of class and grace...fearlessness! Chandler said, "I select pieces that are kind of trendy, but classic...pieces that you will have forever." I also noted the fine construction of each garment, its' design and use of quality materials and fabrics, which sets this boutique apart from the competition. Epitome has it all from easy wear to club attire, offering edgy leggings, daring custom dresses and playful shirts moderately priced from $35-$150.
I have come to the conclusion that Epitome Boutique Inc. should be every woman’s first stop shop to find all things fabulous. No matter what the occasion – lunch with the girls or rooftop listening party, transform your look and be the epitome of the crowd. Fellas, don’t feel left out because there is plenty of seating to lounge while your lady shops and if you come alone looking for that special gift, Laricia will help you find the perfect surprise!
I haven't had a trend thats really made my heart flutter for a long time... it not ever.
I recently starting seeing ox blood everyere! There is just something about it. Perhaps its the combination of extremely daring, but not cheesy, perfect to tone down for the day, or tone up for the night.
What do you guys think? I'm obsessed.
And don't worry guys, I didn't leave you out.
Fieg x Dr. Martens just released some awesome oxblood and camo oxfords. Is that... Ox squared?
Here is the first look at this year's All-Star jerseys, as the NBA and adidas are about to go heavy with the promotion for next month's mid-season exhibition in Houston. Per usual with adidas, there are some intricate details in the design that takes inspiration from the subject:
Designed by adidas, the 2013 NBA All-Star uniforms were inspired by Houston’s rich aeronautical history and the speed of the jet planes that dot its skies. The uniforms’ eye-catching impact camo pattern evokes the world’s fastest fleet of aircraft with the classic silhouette of a basketball net.
I love how direct to the subject that adidas gets their ideas. What do you all think of the threads? I rock with these, especially compared to all-star jerseys of the past few years. Plus, I love when the name of the player is under the number, as seen in one more detail below. As for the game itself, the All-Star starters will be announced tomorrow night on TNT!
