BAD MAIDS DRESSES

COURTESY OF AN ORANGE WEDNESDAY CODE, TONIGHT I'M OFF TO THE CINEMA TO WATCH 'BRIDESMAIDS'. IT GOT ME THINKING ABOUT SUPER UGLY BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES. HEAVY ON CURTAIN FLORALS AND FUSSY FROUFROU - THEY'RE UNFLATTERING AND OH SO FRIGHTFUL.

I FEEL YOU FRANK

OTHER THAN ITCHING MY F'ING MOSQUITO BITES, I'M ITCHING TO GET AWAY. FRANK SINATRA IS WILLING ME TO 'COME FLY' BUT WHERE EXACTLY TO HASN'T QUITE BEEN DECIDED. BOOKING SIMULTANEOUS TIME-OFF FROM WORK, HURRICANE SEASON AND CASH MONEY ARE ALL OBSTACLES IN THE HOLIDAY QUEST. I WILL NOT BE DETERRED. I BELIEVE I CAN FLY...

A LITTLE WHITE EYE

THE WHITE EYE LINER BEAUTY TREND IS SOMETHING I'VE SPOTTED A WHOLE LOT OF LATELY. LINE YOUR LIDS IN IT TO BOOST TIRED LOOKING EYES, MAKE THEM LOOK BIGGER AND INJECT SOME YOUTHFUL BRIGHTNESS INTO YOUR PEEPERS. KOURTNEY K. SHOWS US HOW IT'S DONE - OR AT LEAST HER MAKE-UP ARTIST DOES.

ON A SWEATY SUNDAY AFTERNOON

YESTERDAY, OTHER THAN SOAKING UP 28°C (YES IT WAS HOT IN LONDON) I SPENT MORE THAN A FEW HOURS SITTING ON THE STEPS CLAPPING AND WHOOPING AT TROCADERO UNDERGROUND WITNESSING THE BATTLES AND BREAKS OF SOME OF MY SERIOUS B-BOYS AND B-GIRL FRIENDS. THIS WIRE SCULPTURE BY KARL BAYEK PRETTY MUCH SUMS UP THE STRENGTH, STAMINA AND SOLIDITY I SPIED IN THE ULTIMATE BREAKDANCING FREEZE.

GREEN DAY

HAD A MOMENTARY GREEN MOMENT WITH A COUPLE NEW PURCHASES LAST WEEK. MY BARRY M 'SPRING GREEN' POLISH ALONGSIDE A PAIR OF NIKE BLAZER HI SUEDE VINTAGE. YES THEY'RE STILL IN THE BOX WAITING TO 'SPRING' INTO ACTION.

R.I.P. K.O.P.

I'M REMEMBERING THE KING OF POP 2 YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH WITH SOME SYMBOLIC POP ART BY SARAH CLARKSON. THAT'S ONE DELUXE SHADE OF BLUE SHE'S USED THERE. MY ODE TO MICHAEL STILL REMAINS IN MY 'DEAR MICHAEL' BLOG POST FROM LAST YEAR. GO TAKE A LOOK, IT'S WELL DEFINED, A LITTLE LIKE MICHAEL'S JAWLINE IN THIS PORTRAIT.

ARRRGGG

WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE IT'S ALL GETTING TOO MUCH.

GONE 2 SOON

TODAY WOULD HAVE MARKED HIS 40TH BIRTHDAY. GOT ME THINKING ABOUT IF HE WERE STILL HERE - WOULD NEW YORK'S LEGENDARY RAPPER TUPAC SHAKUR STILL BE MAKING MUSIC? MAYBE HE'D HAVE GONE THE DRE ROUTE AND JUST BEEN PRODUCING OR FOLLOWED ICE CUBE AND HEADED INTO TV? DONE LIKE MASE AND ENTERED THE CHURCH OR BEEN COLLABORATING AND CHURNING HITS WITH THE LIKES OF NICKI AND DRAKE?! WHO KNOWS, BUT ON TUPAC'S BIRTHDAY, ALMOST A FULL 15 YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH IN VEGAS, ALL WE CAN CONTINUE TO DO IS PICTURE HIM ROLLIN.

MONEY ON MY MIND

I NEED A DOLLAR DOLLAR, A DOLLAR THAT'S WHAT I NEED.

LONG FORGOTTEN

BACK IN 09, I BOUGHT MYSELF A SPARKLY LEOPARD PRINT MOUSE WITH THE INTENTION OF USING IT WITH MY SPARKLY NEW LAPTOP. AS THE LAPTOP PURCHASE RAN OVER SLIGHTLY, I FORGOT ABOUT THE MOUSE. I ONLY JUST REMEMBERED I HAD IT TODAY. HERE SHE IS, IN ALL HER GLORY. MEET MY MOUSE. 

NO FUSS FOOTWEAR

SIMPLE AND STRAIGHT-UP, JUST A ONE COLOUR CANVAS AND A RUBBER MIDSOLE. NIKE HAVE RELEASED A CANVAS BLAZER PACK IN SKY BLUE OR LIGHTBULB CREAM. LIGHTBULB CREAM, DAMN THAT DESCRIBES THE COLOUR TO A T. SWITCH ME ON.

FITTED KNITTED

RIHANNA WEARS HER FITTED-BLACK-CROPPED-KNIT JUMPER/SKIRT SET SO EFFORTLESSLY. EVERYTHING LOOKS VERY WELL SCULPTED, INCLUDING HER...RED RINGLETS.

RESURRECTING MY MONDAY

DURING THE WEEKEND I CAUGHT A SEXY DRESS-UP DEBATE ON THE BOX AND WAS DRAWN TO THE WONDERS OF LATEX. A FEW CLICKS LATER, I STUMBLED UPON COLLECTIVE CHAOS - A COMPANY THAT STRIVES TO CREATE IMAGES AND CLOTHES THAT SUPPORT THE RAW ESSENCE OF SEXUALITY. JACKPOT. THANKS TO THEM AND A LUSTFUL JUXTAPOSITION OF LACE, LATEX AND WELL PLACED TATTOOS, YOU CAN NOW CREATE SOME 'CHAOS' UNDER YOUR CLOTHING.

BUDGE UP FOR BLISS

A NEW AD FOR CADBURY CHOC BLISS FEATURING SUPERMODEL NAOMI CAMPBELL READS 'MOVE OVER NAOMI, THERE'S A NEW DIVA IN TOWN', THE DIVA DEEMED THE AD RACIST AND OFFENSIVE TO BLACK PEOPLE SAYING:
 

"IT'S UPSETTING TO BE DESCRIBED AS CHOCOLATE, NOT JUST FOR ME, BUT FOR BLACK WOMEN AND BLACK PEOPLE. THIS IS THE 21ST CENTURY, NOT THE 1950's. SHAME ON CADBURY."

CADBURY HASTILY PULLED THE AD. QUESTION IS - DOES HER ISSUE EXIST WITH BEING RELATED TO A CHOCOLATE BAR OR BEING TOLD TO MOVE OVER? CHILL NAOMI, YOU STILL LOOK GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT.
