FACT OF THE DAY

I CRAVE A GOOD HOT DOG EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, BUT HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHERE THIS SAUSAGE IN A BUN GETS IT'S NAME? WELL, A DACHSHUND IS THE SHORT-LEGGED DOG WITH A LONG BODY. THE MAN WHO INITIALLY BEGAN SELLING HOT DOGS PROMOTED THEM AS 'RED HOT DACHSHUNDS' BECAUSE THEY REMINDED HIM OF THE DOG. THIS WAS THEN ABBREVIATED TO 'HOT DOG'. SO NOW YOU KNOW, DAWG.

CIGARILLO & SEQUINS

SATURDAY NIGHT AND RUNNING EARLY BEFORE SETTING OFF, I KILLED SOME TIME PUFFING ON A SMOOTH VANILLA AROMATIC CIGARILLO IN MY BATTERED SEQUIN SLEEVE TEE (AS YOU DO).

IT'S BEEN A DECADE AND ALONGSIDE HER CLOSE FRIENDS AND COLLABORATORS - KIM, MISSY AND DA BRAT, THE REST OF THE WORLD CONTINUES TO MISS HER. A TIMELESS TALENT...

LAST NIGHT I WATCHED

LOVE & BASKETBALL. I'VE SEEN IT MANY TIMES BUT THIS ROMANTICAL MOVIE/SOUNDTRACK IS A #1 OF MINE. IT FOLLOWS THE LONG SPANNING PASSIONATE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN NEXT-DOOR NEIGHBORS QUINCY (OMAR EPPS) AND MONICA (SANAA LATHAN) WHO GROW UP LOVING BASKETBALL AND, EVENTUALLY, EACH OTHER. IN THE SCENE BELOW, QUINCY REASSURES MONICA, "OF ALL THESE GIRLS, YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE THAT'S FOR REAL."

I GOT SO WET

GOT CAUGHT IN THE RAIN TODAY (ART TO ILLUSTRATE MY POINT BY JESSE SUBLETT). IT WAS ABSOLUTELY PISSING DOWN BUT I KEPT ON WALKING. THERE WAS SOMETHING QUITE LIBERATING ABOUT FACING NATURE WITHOUT AN UMBRELLA. I RECOMMEND YOU TRY IT SOMETIME.

TELLING TAILS

KANYEEZY, BREEZY AND MRS BECKHAM PROBABLY THINK THEY'RE SOO LAST YEAR BUT FUR TAILS AREN'T OUT OF THE WOODS YET. THE COLOURED VERSIONS ARE MY FAVE. THEY CAN BE CLIPPED TO A BELT LOOP, BAG OR A SET OF JANGLING KEYS. SWISH THEM AROUND IN TIME WITH YOUR HAIR.

MMM MOMENTS

"DON'T YOU WORRY ABOUT A CLUB JUST COME AND LAY UP UNDER ME TONIGHT."

GOOD TIMES

JAY-Z AND KANYE LOOK LIKE THEIR HAVING A WHALE OF A TIME FOOLING AROUND IN THEIR SPIKE JONZE DIRECTED VIDEO FOR 'OTIS'. JOY RIDING JOYFULLY IN A PIMPED OUT MAYBACH WITH LADIES HOLDING ON FOR DEAR LIFE. NOT FORGETTING THE HUGE AMERICAN FLAG IN THE BACKDROP FOR ADDED IMPACT.

"I TOTALLY GOT THE IDEA FROM UR BLOG."

I WAS SO UTTERLY THRILLED TO THE POINT I CLAPPED WITH JOY, TO SEE THAT I, FASHIONISHA WAS ABLE TO INSPIRE. MY GOOD FRIEND AND BROADWAY STAR, NEW YORKER EPHRAIM SYKES, READ MY BOW TIE BLOG POST FROM LAST SUNDAY AND USED THE MOS DEF OUTFIT I CHOSE TO BASE AROUND HIS OWN AT HIS OPENING NIGHT OF RENT. DOESN'T HE WEAR IT HANDSOMELY! THE MORAL OF THE STORY, IF YOU EVER HAVE THAT 'I DON'T QUITE KNOW WHAT TO WEAR AND NEED SOME INSPIRATION' FEELING, THEN LOOK NO FURTHER THAN HERE.

IN AN ATTEMPT TO MAKE MY FASHION BLOGGING DREAMS A REALITY

...I'M ENTERING A COMPETITION. I HAVE TO TELL LOOK MAGAZINE, IN THE FORM OF A BLOG POST (THIS ONE RIGHT HERE BY THE WAY), WHY I SHOULD BE FRONT ROW AT THE LOOK SHOW AW11 AT WESTFIELD STRATFORD CITY. HERE GOES. WELL FOR A START, DUH, THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND LONDON FASHION WEEK (A FIRST FOR ME) AND SIT, NOT IN THE FORGOTTEN ROW, BUT IN THE FRONT ROW, SHADES ON, NOTEBOOK IN HAND, PEN POISED, WITH MY FEARLESS FASHIONISHA FACE ON. JUST PAINTING A PRETTY PICTURE. THE SHEER THOUGHT OF NOT ONLY BEING ASSOCIATED WITH BRITAIN'S BEST SELLING FASHION WEEKLY, BUT REPORTING LIVE AT A FASHION SHOW, BECAUSE OF MY FASHION BLOG, IS KINDA LIKE THE FEELING YOU GET FINDING A PAIR OF DIVINE SKY HIGH PLATFORMS AT A NOT SO SKY HIGH PRICE, IN YOUR SIZE AND YOUR SIZE ONLY. MAGICAL.SO HERE'S MY PLEA: LOOK, IF YOU TAKE A 'WINNING' CHANCE ON ME, I'LL SOAK UP EVERY LAST CATWALK STOMPING SECOND AND WITTILY REPORT MY OH SO STYLISH ASS OFF. C'MON, THAT CHAIR'S ALREADY GOT MY NAME ON IT.

LONDON TOWN IS GOING DOWN

RIOTING, LOOTING, HOOLIGANISM, VANDALISM, VIOLENCE AND UTTER CHAOS. OFFENDERS GET A GRIP! IT'S ALL GETTING OUTTA HAND. THERE'S UNREST ON OUR MEAN STREETS AND I HOPE AND PRAY THAT HARMONY GETS RESTORED PRONTO.

OUCH

RUM PA PA PUM!

RIH RIH CLEARLY EMBRACED KADOOMENT DAY IN HER HOMETOWN OF BARBADOS THE OTHER WEEK. DRESSED IN A TRADITIONAL CARNIVAL GET-UP ALL FEATHERED AND BEJEWELLED, THE S&M SINGER GOT UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL FROLICKING WITH FANS AND MEMBERS OF THE GLADLY ACCOMMODATING CROWD.

LOOSE THE TIE, TIE A BOW

BOW TIES, A SUPER STYLISH ALTERNATIVE TO WEARING A BASIC TIE. THEY'RE NO LONGER JUST RESERVED FOR SUITED AND BOOTED OCCASIONS AND NOR ARE THEY JUST RESERVED FOR THE FELLAS. MOS DEF, ANNALYNNE McCORD AND A FASHION ILLUSTRATION BY JANELLE BURGER CHOOSE A PLAID OPTION, MIX WITH SOPHISTICATION WITH EASE AND OOZE THE FINE AND DANDY.

COLOURED GIRLS

AND BY THAT I MEAN BEAUTIFUL GLOWING BLACK WOMEN IN A COLOURFUL MIRAGE OF OUTFITS. A STUNNING PORTRAIT TAKEN AT A BBQ WHERE THESE LADIES ALONE WOULD HAVE HEATED UP THE GRILL. SHOUTS OUT TO MY GIRL PRINCESS TOMIWA IN FLORAL PANTS WHO TAKES CENTER STAGE AND ALLOWED ME TO POST THE PIC. THIS COMING TOGETHER GOT THE FASHIONISHA SUMMER STAMP OF APPROVAL.

CHAIN MAIL

HOPE YOU'RE ALL HAVING A STIMULATING WEEKEND. I'M POSTING FROM BESTIE'S HOUSE (DEDICATION RIGHT THERE) WITH NEWS OF A BODY CHAIN. YOU MIGHT HAVE SEEN THEM AROUND, ALICIA KEYS WORE ONE DURING HER PERFORMANCE AT THIS YEARS BET AWARDS. IT TRANSFORMS ANY PLAIN TOP FROM NOTHING TO SOMETHING. TRY THE TOPSHOP FREEDOM VERSION - WORKS WONDERS WITH A VEST STYLE, BUSTIER OR EVEN STARKERS WITH A BELLY DANCE.
