Rap meets fashion 2

The acknowledgement of high class fashion is not restricted to those who work in fashion alone and those of us who like to wear it. Rappers in the music industry have come to recognize the class that goes along with donning high class fashion labels.
Some don’t just flaunt their designer labels, they also rap about it and are seen at the fashion shows. A great example of a rapper who also has a flare for high street fashion is Kanye West.

Sometime in the year he designed shoes he called ‘cruel summer’ with Italian shoe footwear giant Giuseppe Zanotti which sold for about $6000. He at some point referred to himself as the Loius Vuitton don, he owns that much franchise and also designed shoes for Louis Vuitton and Nike sneakers called “Air Yeezy”. Just a few days ago he was spotted at Chanel fashion week, front row seats of course.

Rick Ross who is well known as rozay, called himself the Red bottom boss, due to his love for expensive and fine footwear designed by French power house Christian Louboutins. He is known to mention fashion brands in his bars quite often, he knows what we ladies love.

Here are some selected rappers and bars in which they acknowledge high priced designers of luxury items that every fashionista would love to own in his or her wardrobe.

‘……..I value her time like an Audemars Piguet’

‘…… I can take you there, call Marc Jacobs personally to make a pair’
       ‘… the ones beneath me recognize the red bottoms I wear?’
‘…….Balenciaga sneakers now she talking cash money…
‘…..Cartier new rings, Chanel hoodie on, shopping in Milan, -
‘….exotic red bottoms soles body glitter like gold…’
‘…….red bottoms, spikes on ‘em that’s a go stack, red bottom boss’
‘…..YSL and Hermes….surface…..’
‘…..Sent my girl a Birkin bag….’
‘Versace linen got these women throwing kisses’
“……Jacob the jeweler, Bubbles, Lorraine Schwartz sorta dude’’
“   Seven inch stiletto’s aint for those afraid of heights………… homicide Hermes bag, take off the lobby……’’
‘I got a Hublot, call it Tebow……’

‘….now you see me stuck in the club with a Versace hoe’ – Ryan Leslie

….Louis lens, iced up with the black diamonds, Cartier, Ferrari, the new spider… Bird man
 ‘Why stop on this Gucci and Louis that I rock’ - Juelz Santana
‘Shoes by Gucci, bag by Louis, hey let me buy you’ - Fabulous
‘I did kill a queen, the Alexander McQueen’- Nicki Minaj.

Who wouldn’t want to shop in Milan, have jewelry by Jacob the Jeweler and have their man send then a Hermes birkin bag? Personally I’d like all those things too.
Some Rappers have transformed from their original image of wearing baggy jeans and so much bling and high tops by Sean John to three piece designer suits, belts, cufflinks, shoes and watches. They have finally come on board tasteful high street fashion. In their rapping about these fashion houses, they also motivate other rappers and listeners to acquire these luxury items

i would describe statement pieces as those items of clothing or shoes or accessories that stand out in an ensemble, one that commands attention. its simply impossible to un-noticed in certain outfits or hairstyles, even manicures!
 here are some statement pieces, some that command attention. after all fashion is about making a statement, however an individuals personal style decides to express it.

prints ,multiple bracelets and multi-chrome clutch

Balenciaga egytofunk paired with a pleated mini

multiple accessories!!!

need i say more, bright yellow skirt with a thigh high slit and metallic gold pumps

neon in shoes, bags or jewelry is sure to make you noticed

the metallic gold Celine bag, brings life to any outfit

plunging rear! the conversation begins when you turn your back

a studded bra like this through a sheer top is sure to make them stare

with hair like this and fancy earrings you will turn heads

you cant beat this gold studded peter pan collar

hair like this just screams LOOK AT ME!!!

you wont even need to stretch your arm for a handshake for this hand to be noticed

you'll be the have the men wanting to kneel and kiss your hand in this manicure

now this is what i call LOUD AND COOL

with such an edgy manicure every hot guy out there will sure wanna put a ring on it, LOL.

i cant describe to you my extreme love for this outfit, its unusual. Eva seems to be channelling her inner Kirsten Stewart and in my opinion she aced it!

owing to the fact that a lady's hair is one of the first thing people notice about her, a stylish head wrap cannot but  bring the WOW-factor

Dorothy's red shoes in Wizard of Oz cant beat these shoes!

edgy accessories, a tatoo, cleavage and red lips, everyone is looking already

there is nothing that stops you from trying statement pieces, be it animal prints, bold eye make-up, red lips, fancy manicures, chunky jewelry or perhaps even a tatoo. personal style is how YOU decide to express your self through the way you look.

look Fabulous,

dress up and conquer

Hello World.

i do apologize for my prolonged absence. I am back fully.

i recall something my mentor told me a few weeks ago. he said to me that moods dont matter, there are things to be done. thats why i stopped acting based on my mood as much as possible. before i used to paint my nails the colour of how i am feeling when i am upset or dress in a way to convey my mood, mostly negative moods but i stop all that now. my mood means nothing i have to look fly all the time, mask my feelings with a smile, ususally my excessive laughter potrays i'm in  bad mood but only i know that so i'll hang on to that.

  During my exams i didnt let the fact that i was mad as hell that my Ex was screwing or dating whatever  my friend affect me, not that it didnt, it did, a whole lot. however it didnt stop me from studying like a maniac and totally acing my exams. i dont want to be that girl who flunked her exam because she was emotionally perilled, its expected that people cave in as a result from one emotional drama but i wanted to defy that and as much as possible defy it for every bad mood i am in for i seem to have many. i have to look good all the time, boosts my confidence.

i have been in a horrible mood lately mostly because i really like this guy who i dated for a little over a month and things didnt quite work out and i'm simply mad at the world. How come the universe doesnt warn us about such things though? but still i wake up every morning, wear my fake smile, dress up looking exceptionally good, have a bottle of ribena and go about my days, and more often that not my fake smile turns into a real one.

i had a real smile todaY. I got a call from a website, they found both my blogs and loved it and want me to work with/for them. how cool is that. i was thrilled *sips Ribena*.
 i dress up every morning ready to conquer the world. moods dont matter, there is greatness to be achieved.

here are some outfits that i totally love and would definitely conquer in
