BROOKLYN BOUND

3AM. I'M JUST ABOUT FINISHED PACKING. IT'S AN INTRICATE PROCESS FOR A FASHIONISHA LIKE ME. FUCK, JUST REALISED I MUST PRINT MY TICKETS. YEA I DID A LAST MIN DOT COM, BUT WITH A (COINCIDENTAL) 'BIRTHDAY BABE' OPI POLISH ON MY FINGERS AND TOES AND A BIRTHDAY IN THE BIG CITY TO LOOK FORWARD TO...ALL I NEED NOW IS A SAFE FLIGHT. WISH ME WELL IN WILLIAMSBURG READERS. J HOLIDAY'S BED IS PLAYING ON THE RADIO - I THINK HE'S TRYNA TELL ME SOMETHING. GOODNIGHT AND FAREWELL.

I C YOU C C

THESE WERE SOME OF THE WORDS I UTTERED WHEN I SAW THIS SNAP OF CIARA AND HER SCISSOR HAPPY LBD AT AN NBA AFTER PARTY THE OTHER DAY: DAANG, EEESH, PHEW AND (MOUTH DROPS). I THINK YOU GET THE POINT.

URSHER BABY

MY EAGER SELF CALLED CHOICE FM AT SILLY O'CLOCK ON FRIDAY MORNING AND I WON MYSELF TICKETS TO SEE USHER'S FINAL SHOW AT THE O2 ARENA IN LONDON LAST NIGHT. WITH MY SISTER IN TOW AND A HELPING OF MEXICAN WAVES TO KEEP US OCCUPIED, USHER GRACED US FROM THE SKIES (HE WAS AIRLIFTED DOWN ON A PLATFORM) AT AROUND 9.30PM AND THE SCREAMING COMMENCED WELL UNTIL 11.30PM. I GOTTA SAY THIS MUCH, HE'S STILL GOT THE OMG FACTOR. BODY/VOCALS/MOVES, USHER JUST EXUDES A CHARMING CHARISMA THAT HAS THE AUDIENCE CAPTIVATED. I APPRECIATED THE OLDIES MORE SO THAN THE NEWBIES AND WAS ACTUALLY TOUCHED BY USHER'S MINI DANCE TRIBUTE TO MJ. HIGHLIGHT OF THE NIGHT? STRAIGHT UP VEST RIP REVEAL. LOWLIGHT OF THE NIGHT? THE RIP OFF, SOFT WAFERED, £3.10 KIT KAT CONE ICE CREAM.

CLOCK WATCHING

THIS TIME NEXT WEEK I'LL BE IN NYC. I GET EXCITED AT THE MERE MENTION OF IT, LIKE A BIG UNCONTROLLABLE SMILE APPEARS ON MY FACE. TALKING OF TIME, LOOK AT THIS JEREMY SCOTT X SWATCH WATCH COLLABO. THERE ARE 3 IN THE SERIES BUT I'D ONLY STICK OUT MY WRIST FOR THE VINTAGE LOOKING 'OPULENCE WATCH' WITH ITS FANCY FRAME FEATURE. HITTING STORES 3RD MARCH, JUST AS I'LL BE HOPPING BACK ON A PLANE TO LONDON. WELL AT LEAST THEY'LL BE SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TOO UPON MY RETURN.

A NOT SO SAINTLY ST. VALENTINE'S

SO TODAY WAS THE DAY TO CELEBRATE LOVE. THERE WAS A WHOLE LOT OF LOVE AROUND BUT I JUST COULDN'T FEEL IT IN MY FINGERS OR IN MY TOES. PERHAPS THAT'S BECAUSE I'M RIDING THE SINGLE LADIES ANTHEM. NONETHELESS, I LET MY IMAGINATION GET THE BETTER OF ME AND I REMEMBERED ONE OF MY FAVOURITE ROMANTIC MOVIES, 'DISAPPEARING ACTS', STARRING SANAA LATHAN (ZORA) AND WESLEY SNIPES (FRANKLIN). THERE'S ONE STEAMY SCENE IN PARTICULAR THAT GETS ME EVERY 'SINGLE' TIME. ZORA GOES TO GET FRANKLIN A DRINK AND THEN HE (NOT BEING ABLE TO CONTAIN HIMSELF ANY LONGER) BEGINS TO CARESS HER WHILE SHE'S STILL AT THE FRIDGE. REALIZING THEY CANNOT HIDE THEIR MUTUAL ATTRACTION, THINGS BEGIN TO GO DOWN, LITERALLY. WITH THE SERENADING SOUNDS OF AL GREEN'S 'SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL' PLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND, THIS IS ONE SCENE I'D HAPPILY RE-CREATE, VALENTINE'S DAY OR NO VALENTINE'S DAY.

AFTER DARK

OUT ON THE TOWN LAST NIGHT WITH MY BESTIE WE HIT UP STUDIO VALBONNE. I AIN'T GETTING MARRIED BUT IT JUST OCCURRED TO ME THAT MY OUTFIT CONSISTED OF A 'SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING BORROWED, SOMETHING BLUE' THEME. IT WENT A LIL SOMETHING LIKE THIS: MY 10 YEAR OLD BROWN LIPSTICK + OLD PATENT PLUM COLOURED CAGED HEELS, MY FAIRLY NEW LEATHER PANTS, BORROWED OFF MY SIS WAS A SHEER CROPPED TOP AND MY RICH BLUE VELVET BAG AND CYAN BLUE BARRY M NAILS. BESTIE WENT ALL OUT NUDE AND I'D SAY WE COMPLEMENTED EACH OTHER LIKE THE BEAUTY THAT IS NIGHT AND DAY. BLA.

WELL STACKED

ASOS IS APPEALING TO ME RIGHT NOW. THESE NUDE COURTS WITH AN EXPOSED STACKED PLATFORM CREATE A BIT MORE INTEREST TO THE SHOE, MAKING THEM APPEAR MORE STATUESQUE. JUST THE THING FOR ADDING A TOUCH OF 'SOLE' TO YOUR STEP.

SHISHA STYLE FILE

THE WEEKEND SHISHA SPOT ONCE AGAIN UNCOVERED SOME IMPRESSIVE FLAVOUR AND I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THE TOBACCO. THIS TIME I SNAPPED MY SMOKING COMPADRES ZACH AND FRICO AND BETWEEN THEM THEY SHARED AN INFUSION OF TAPESTRY, WASHED OUT DENIM, FRESH WHITE T, CORDUROY, CHEERFUL RAINBOW SOCKS, SOME STRAIGHT OUT THE BOX NIKE AIR LEGACY AND A FLASH OF LV. THE BEST PART WAS, I EVEN GOT SOME TONGUE.

PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS

THE LATEST COVER OF V MAN MAGAZINE SHOT BY FASHION EXTRAORDINAIRE KARL LAGERFELD FEATURES KANYE WEST WITH ACTUAL DOLLAR BILLS STUFFED INTO HIS GOB. THE ISSUE ITSELF IS $5 BUT I GUESS YOU'D ONLY BE PAYING $3. SEE MR WEST, WONDERFUL THINGS HAPPEN IF YOU JUST KEEP YOUR TRAP SHUT.

BRAVE BENJAMIN

SATURDAY EVENING I POPPED OVER TO BLOOMSBURY LANES WHERE MY FRIEND BENJART HAD LAID ON A TEMPTING SPREAD. AS WELL AS BOWLING/POOL/MUSIC/DRINKS, I ALSO HAD THE PLEASURE OF VIEWING HIS WHOLESOME BRAND. I SAY WHOLESOME BECAUSE THERE'S MEANING HERE, HIS DESIGNS TELL A STORY. 'BENJAMIN'S ART' WAS BORN FROM SHATTERED DREAMS - HE'S JUMPING THE HURDLES THAT LIFE MAY THROW AT HIM AND HE'S FINDING HIS WAY TO THE TOP, IN DOING SO, CREATING A COLLECTION THAT ILLUSTRATES HIS JOURNEY. EVEN THE SATIN VARSITY I'VE FEATURED STATES, 'THE BRAVE MAY NOT LIVE FOREVER BUT THE CAUTIOUS DO NOT LIVE AT ALL'. WOORD, HE WAS EVEN BRAVE ENOUGH TO BATTLE ME FOR A PHOTO.

I DRIZZY TAKE THEE NICKI

THERE HAVE BEEN ON-GOING RUMOURS OF KISSING, CANOODLING AND EVEN MARRIAGE FOR NICKI AND DRAKE AND THEIR CURRENT 'CINDERELLA' STYLE MOMENT 4 LIFE MUSIC VIDEO PLAYS ON THIS CLEVERLY (WATCH THE BEHIND THE SCENES). WHATEVER THE STATUS - HOMIES/LOVERS/FRIENDS OR A BITE OF ALL THREE, I'M GLAD THEY CAME TOGETHER AND SHARED THEIR 'MOMENT' WITH US LOT.

OK, NEW CRUSH

SACHA M'BAYE IS A FINE SPECIMEN OF MODEL SIGNED TO SELECT. THIS FRENCH/SENEGALESE SEMI-PRO FOOTBALLER HAS SHOT FOR GAP, AMERICAN EAGLE, STONE ISLAND, GQ STYLE AND MORE RECENTLY THE BURBERRY S/S 2011 CAMPAIGN. HE'S GOT A SEXY SCAR UNDER RIGHT EYE THING GOING ON AND OH I THINK I LIKE HIM.

HOOLD UP, WAIT A MINUTE

RIGHT, I'VE CAUGHT UP WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD AND FINALLY SEEN RI RI'S SAUCY S&M VIDEO. I DON'T THINK I BLINKED ONCE THROUGHOUT. ATTENTION GRABBING, SEXUAL AND FULL OF FRANK SUGGESTIVE LYRICS LIKE, 'SEX IN THE AIR, I DON'T CARE, I LOVE THE SMELL OF IT', IT WAS RIHANNA DOING WHAT SHE DOES BEST - BEING BAD. BEING SO BAD IN FACT THAT SHE'S EVEN BEEN ACCUSED OF BEING A BIT OF A COPY CAT. MANY OF THE KEY SCENES FROM THE VID HAVE BEEN COMPARED TO THE WORK OF FAMED PHOTOGRAPHER (AND ANOTHER FASHIONISHA FAVE) DAVID LACHAPELLE. I'M SURE RI RI WON'T MIND THE BACKLASH THOUGH, SHE LIKES BEING PUNISHED. 

P.S. FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT DON'T KNOW WHAT S&M STANDS FOR BUT WERE TOO AFRAID TO ASK IT'S SHORT FOR SADISM AND MASOCHISM - A SOME WHAT DOMINATING SEXUAL PRACTICE INVOLVING THE INFLICTING OR RECEIVING OF PAIN. NICE.

ASHISH! CAPISH?

DESIGNER LABELS ARE MOMENTARILY OUTTA MY PRICE RANGE BUT IF I COULD SPLURGE - REPRESENTING THE INDIANS - I'D FLASH MY CASH AT SOME ASHISH GUPTA. DESCRIBING HIS DESIGNS AS SEXY, GLAM AND SPORTY, THIS DESIGNER IS INSPIRED BY EVERYTHING FROM DISCO TO DANCE, BOLLYWOOD TO BILLBOARDS AND SEQUINS TO SPARKLE. HIS STUFF IS VIBRANT AND YOUTHFUL WITH A DOLLOP OF HUMOUR. QUITE JEREMY SCOTT-ISH, SO IT'S NO WONDER I'M DROOLING.
