Mr. West is in the building
Swagger on a hundred thousand trillion!!!

Kanye West was featured in this month's XXL Magazine with a 40-page spread, which was released today. The feature consists of interviews as well as black & white pictures of him and his G.O.O.D Music fam, all representing the Rosewood movement to the fullest - black suits & ties. Ye served as the creative director of the spread which enabled him the opportunity to represent his newfound movement the right way with pieces like a black-slim fit suit, knit tie, peacoat, fedora hat, way-fare style sunglasses, and Dries Van Noten shoes. For the exclusive story as well as additional pictures, please pick up a copy of the magazine and support the movement!!!

all spiked everything.

Imma rock this sh*t like fashion
As in, goin to they say stop
And my runway never looked so clear,
But the hottest b*tch in heels right here!!!

*gags* that last one keeps calling my name....
These coats/jackets come from Burberry Prorsum Spring 2011 collection which previewed during London fashion week. Motorcycle jackets & trench coats are definitely this season's must haves, add some studs and spikes & your killin' it - LITERALLY. The prices for these pieces range anywhere from $3,000-$15,000 O_o.....same thing I said, this will definitely be a DIY project, but if your pockets are eating cheese cake you can pre-order them HERE 



What you about to witness in my thoughts
Just my thoughts, man - right or wrong
Just what I'm feelin at the time...

The Jordan brand teamed up with fashion designer & video director Vashtie Kola to create a limited edition Jordan 2 sneaker in an effort to pay homage to the millions of female Jordan wearers. BIGUPS to Vashtie for becoming the first female to team up with Jordan; October 2nd is the anticipated released date...my question to the ladies is: would you rock these?

I fell asleep beneath the flowers
For a couple of hours
On a beautiful day
I dream of you amid the flowers
For a couple of hours
Such a beautiful day...

I'll never be picture perfect Beyonce...

Solange covers the September/October issue of FashionIzBlack magazine. In this issue she talks about her style evolution: 

From 17 to maybe 20, I became a mom. I was in Idaho, was a stay at home mom and my style was very basic. I just didn’t have time for the looks. At the time, at the point where I was in my relationship, I sort of lost a sense of myself. I look back at those outfits and I’m like “Who is this?”. Maybe I was trying to become what my husband was attracted to or I tried to be what a mom should look like.
Then I got back to the music, out of the relationship and became drawn to this influence again. It was all about that 60′s pop culture, paired it with a very comfy hat or fun pattern. Over the past 2 years, it has definitely followed my music, which is a mix of great 80′s and 70′s sounds
 I absolutely love Solange & her vintage style. I only have one thing to say:
