Hey Guys!
I wrote a quick article for Essence.com on 10 Fashion Bloggers You Should Know:

Some faces may look familiar:)
I think it’s important to shine a light on those fashion bloggers who are super dope, but who may fly under the radar.
Click here to read up!

From breathtaking street shots to uniquely personal photos, these 10 bloggers are setting the Internet ablaze with their passion for fashion and all things chic.

Street Etiquette

-2
Bronx raised Travis Gumbs and Joshua Kissi are redefining urban style with their personal style blog, Street Etiquette. With a closet brimming over with oxfords, varsity jackets, and close creased pants (instead of low slung pants and white t-shirts) the clean cut pair photograph each of their looks, in vivid detail, all the while paying tribute to well-groomed style czars of the past.

They say, “We can’t help but be grateful we were raised in such a diverse city as New York.  By great chance we have this platform that gives us the opportunity to connect with millions of different individuals from all around the world. From a young male in Chicago to another young man in Amsterdam — all of these people relate to and connect on Street Etiquette.  I like to think we’re the new ambassadors of style.” streetetiquette.com


All the Pretty Birds

Tamu McPherson of All the Pretty Birds shoots eye catching looks in the streets of Milan, New York, and Paris. Instead of simply snapping away, she speaks to her subjects, providing background details to accompany her stunning photographs.

The New York native currently lives in Milan, but travels the globe for freelance projects with Elle Italia, Refinery 29, Metro Newspaper, and Harper’s Bazaar.

Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Need to know what your favorite starlets are wearing on the red carpet? Catherine Kallon can give you the scoop on her blog, Red Carpet Fashion Awards, thanks to her photographic memory and sincere love for runway collections.

The London-born, Sierra Leonean stylista worked at an ad agency and in event management before launching her highly popular blog in 2007. Now you can find her front row at Emilio Pucci in Milan, Lanvin in Paris, and at all the top shows in New York and London.

Jazzi Mc G

-5

Jazzie Mc G aka the “Queen of Do it Yourself,” shows off her closet full of refashioned vintage digs mixed in with designer brands on her self-titled online journal. About starting her blog, she says, “I was definitely going through a transitional period yet brimming with creativity and spending a lot of time on the web anyway… so I thought, why not have my own little e-corner to sort it all out?” jazzimcg.com

JC Report

-5

Jason Campbell of the JC Report offers a global view on fashion news and trends. He pushes outside the Milan, Paris, New York triangle to strike out in Japan and even Brazil.

Before starting his daily fashion news journal in 2002, he worked as an account executive at In the Mix Public Relations firm, introducing fashion great Alexander McQueen to the US market. A founding member of Flavorpill.net, Jason consults for brands like Piazza Sempione and the Limited, styles Vogue regulars like Wendy Murdoch, and writes for Style.com, the New York Times Magazine, and Surface. jcreport.com

Marian Kihogo

-5

Celebrity stylist and fashion writer Marian Kihogo used to collect all her images, texts, sketches, and pictures in a scrapbook-until she left the treasured item in a closet during a move and lost it forever. She was heartbroken, but quickly took to the web to construct a virtual version of her prized book, one she hopes she’ll never lose.
She says, “The contents of my blog are things I cannot wait to share with a close friend: that product, trend, label or talent that you go to bed thinking about and is still on your mind when you wake up.”

She describes her style as, “a car crash of 70’s luxe bohemia, sharp masculine tailoring, structure, texture and rock ‘n’ roll,” and can’t wait to get her hands on a camel Max Mara coat for fall.

Where Did U Get That?

-5

Brit Karen Blanchard of Where did u get that? flexes her inimitable style on her blog, incorporating crisp snapshot of her trips around the world. The edgy urbanista offers a trendy/boho take on American brands, spiced with English flair.

Mop Top Maven

-5

28-year-old Nikole Crow brings to light her personal style on The Mop Top Maven, and also offers hair and beauty advice, DIY projects, cooking tutorials, self help topics, and reviews on places to eat in her hometown of Los Angeles. She explains, “My blog is definitely an extension of me.”

The jewelry designer by day loves to blog and shop in her free time, and spends weekends tutoring at-risk teenage girls.  She says, “Nature, music, and art are amongst some of my biggest influences. Certain songs or images evoke different emotions and my choice of clothing or blog topics are greatly influenced by my interpretation of these sources of inspiration.”

His Hers Chicago

-5

Lori from LA has an enviable wardrobe full of vintage items, and photographs herself wearing them with the help of her photographer boyfriend, Michael Britton.  Her readers’ enthusiasm and feedback are constant motivations.
She explains, “After sharing my personal style through our photography, I began to receive requests from readers to share more on how I manage to easily find great pieces at amazing prices as well as how to create looks that fit their lifestyle. I decided to focus more on sharing tips that readers could use that have helped me in creating an eye that can find clothing everywhere from Goodwill to Forever 21 that look as though I spent top dollar on them.”

She turned her expert thrift shopping into a consulting business, which she does on the side while attending graduate school.

Swagger New York

-5

Bostonian Sian Pierre Regis seizes the best in street style with an urban edge on Swagger New York. He reveals, “I started Swagger because there were no sites speaking to the true urban style I was seeing on the streets of NYC and Paris. In ‘07, there were a host to celeb-driven sites and the Sartorialist had just begun to make its mark. So I thought why not display a site that gave a platform to the young and cool ’real’ people, one that was social-networking savvy, genuine, and totally fashion forward? And it struck a nerve.”

He continues, “I love spotting and talking to young people who feel great about who they are. Swagger aims to capture these kids in their most confident moment, while wearing clothes that speak to them. And the fact that we’re getting popular among the style set by applauding a young and very diverse demo, all that support keeps me pushing.”

What is the difference between a Monokini and traditional One Piece Swimsuit? via [butterfliesandbikinis]

The modern monokini takes its design from the bikini, and is also described as “more of a cut-out one-piece swimsuit,”with designers using fabric, mesh, chain, or other materials to link the top and bottom sections together, though the appearance may not be functional, but rather only aesthetic.

One of the difficulties in fitting a One Piece is torso length. Each woman is different and when you have a one piece the torso design of that suit can fit women only in that range. With a Monokini, the top is attached with a small amount of fabric, chain or other allowing for greater variance of torso length, making fit easy and comfortable.

Monokinis are all the rage. Many girls who would never wear a traditional one piece now wear and flaunt themselves in the sexy fashion forward designer fashions.

A Halter Style Sexy One Piece and Monokini

There are many different styles to fit each figure, taste, and occasion. A halter style one-piece is a great choice for larger busted woman who needs support, and lifts the bust.

The lift and support of a Halter can also add the appearance of fuller breast to woman with moderate to smaller bust size, making it perfect for almost any figure type.

Sexy Cut Out Styles

Over the past few years many top swimwear designers continue to create sexy side cut cut and cut out one-piece bathing suits that totally heat up the beach in various sizzling designs.

Some women are self conscious of their tummy area but have other assets they want to show off. Many of these suit designs cover the areas of concern directing the attention to more flattering aspects of your figure. Be sexy and be confident, with designs that give the appearance of a more slender waist, curvaceous hips, plunging neckline, and totally hot bottom.

Deep V-Neck and Plunging Neckline

Beautiful designs by Agua Bendita, Beach Bunny, L*Space, OndadeMar, SABZ, SAHA, and more…………Daring, sexy and flirtatious making you ultra- sexy and eye- Candy.

With the choices available in One Piece Swimsuits and Monokinis, you have endless opportunities to show off your best assets. For some it’s their breasts, others their legs, and some a great looking booty.

A monokini is basically a bikini swimsuit where the
top is attached to the bottom. It is an interesting concept and I
think the best way to wear a monokini is to wear a solid color to keep
it chic and not cheap. via [shoppingandinfo.com]

My favorite one I have seen around is the
Roberto Cavalli black monokini. It is beautifully made and will look
fabulous on.

“The September Issue” Movie Trailer in HD

OPULUXE Lounge GroovesPlayList

via [YouTube]

Anna Wintour will attend the NYC premiere of "The September <br/>Issue."  An insider says Wintour is being “completely controlling” <br/>in regards to publicity, which she stars in but didn’t produce.

Anna Wintour, the legendary editor-in-chief
of Vogue magazine for twenty years, is the most powerful and
polarizing figure in fashion. She is usually hidden behind her
trademark bob and sunglasses.

An insider says Wintour is being “completely controlling” in regards
to publicity for her flick, which she stars in but didn’t produce.
Perhaps she should spend more time managing her mag: Ad sales at Vogue
are down 36% from last year.

Aqua Jewels by Marcel Wanders

squlavabo01.jpg

Live from Milan: Dutch designer Marcel Wanders has designed a range of bathroom fittings called Aqua Jewels for Italian manufaturers Bonomi.

vasca-parete-1.jpg

Here’s some text from Bonomi:


In the palace of your dreams, where the bathroom is your sanctuary. The warm moist air bathes your skin and “Aqua Jewels” by Marcel Wanders for Bonomi are your servants. The elements lay before you on a stage awaiting your command. The fragmented surfaces are tamed by reflections of light, anticipating your liquid rituals. The water cascades through the “Aqua Jewels” and uses your naked skin as its canvas, dusting you with dazzling droplets of liquid. A magical transformation begins and time stands still.’

vasca-parete-2.jpg

Marcel Wanders grew up in Boxtel, the Netherlands, and graduated cum laude from the School of the Arts Arnhem in 1988. Marcel Wanders’ fame started with his iconic Knotted Chair, which he produced for Droog Design in 1996. He is now ubiquitous, designing for the biggest European contemporary design manufacturers. Founded in 2000, Moooi has grown into an internationally renowned design label. Additionally, Marcel Wanders works on architectural and interior design projects and recently turned his attention to consumer home appliances.

Marcel was the editor of the International Design Yearbook 2005. He was a juror for various prizes like the Rotterdam Design Prize (for which his own products were nominated several times) and the Kho Liang Ie prize. He lectured at SFMoMA, Limn, the Design Academy, Nike, IDFA, FutureDesignDays and has taught at various design academies in the Netherlands and abroad. Various designs of Marcel Wandershave been selected for the most important design collections and exhibitions in the world, like the Museum of Modern Art in New York and San Francisco, the V&A Museum in London, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Museum Boijmans vanBeuningen in Rotterdam, the Central Museum in Utrecht, Museum of Decorative Arts Copenhagen and various Droog Design exhibitions.

Bonomi, the name of the family still leading the company, is an Italian brand uniting solid artisan traditions and the ability to produce top quality bathroom taps and fittings of essential and refined design.

doccia-parete.jpg

The company’s history covers a century of successive generations leaving in heritage the ambition to constantly improve performance through continuous, patient and transversal research, rigorous quality control to comply with the evolution of technology, and untiring daily efforts fired by sobriety.

doccia-parete-4.jpg

Starting before the new millennium, Bonomi has been investing in avant-garde design, giving rise to the development project for a special range of taps which immediately marked an important threshold: in fact, Bonomi was the first company to propose the “flat spout” – an interpretation that is greatly acclaimed now as a paradigm of designer taps.

The project is now consolidated under the brand name of Bonomi Contemporaneo Italiano.
