The Sweater dress

Posted in Uncategorized on November 20, 2006 by Taliah

Today as I was dressing myself, I came across a vintage sweater. At first I thought to toss it but then I thought, “wait a minute, let me just try something out” and sho nuff, BAM! It was fitting like a driver’s glove and I have to tell you, after I slipped on the sweater that was soon-to-be-gone, I certainly had no intentions on giving it to the goodwill. So I‘m sure you’re thinking what did I do after that…well…being the person I am, I had to tweak it a bit.

I matched it up with my black leather belt (pretty wide/about 3in) and since it was long enough I put on my tall leather boots to bring some funk to the episode. I was in all black feeling really luscious and sexy. After my makeover rendition, I realized I put something old and what seemed like clutter in my closet became one of my hottest outfits. This look is actually sweeping the runways and magazines RIGHT NOW! How exciting is that, right? Well another look for you ladies and gents…LUVS IT like my girl Nicole Ritchie says…


“Hoodie Wear”

Posted in Uncategorized on November 7, 2006 by Taliah

Ok, so we have sweaters, vests, blazers, jackets, etc but wait a minute…feast your eyes on this bangin new look: the hoodie. This semi-new trend is bringing heat waves through today’s music videos, runways, and the streets of NY, LA, Atlanta, Miami, Chicago, well you get the picture. This fashion craze can be dressed up or down. Now i know your thinking “hoodies?? hasn’t that been around for decades” and the answer to your question is “of course” HOWEVER, if your an innovative fashion feen like myself, then you will understand where I’m coming from. The style has been rearranged and enhanced by some of the dopest designers out i.e. Juicy Couture, L.A.M.B. (Gwen Stefani’s line), LaRok, etc. Beautiful embroidery, colorful stitching, different textures (i.e. leather, satin) and even beading has been embellished on to this staple piece. Now…back to the full force execution…

Please, pleeeasse pair this piece with the proper neccessities, but i do recommend doing it in your own taste. You can definitely rock it with a pair of skinny jeans, ankle boots, leggings, and cute cut off denim skirts. Celebrities such as Kanye West, Kelis, and Nicole Richie (just to name a few) have been seen around town with “the hoodie”. So check it and try it……
