Fashion Week Feature: Gucci

In Uncategorized on March 2, 2010 at 5:32 pm

Gucci’s Fall collection was a departure from the usual racy, trendy wears we are accustomed to. Filled with earth tones and subtle bursts of colors, the collection displayed head designer Frieda Giannini’s take on more consolidated looks and not the usual ultra trendy wear. Featuring immaculately tailored pants, fur jackets  and form fitting dresses screaming ultra sexy daywear with an attitude. Overall, it is well mixed collection with beautiful evening dresses sprinkled throughout the collection, reminding us just how wearable Gucci really is.

Here are some of the standout looks.


The Power of Technology

In Technology, Uncategorized on February 25, 2010 at 9:27 pm

Technology has changed lives. Now, it’s so hard to imagine life without a Mac, Facebook, Twitter, iPhone or Blackberry. Need I even mention the times when cell phones were a luxury? Technology has changed items from  luxury to necessity. I lost my blackberry and somehow I am not the same. I don’t even like to use the phone anymore. Really.

Applications like Twitter have let celebrities become their own public relations machines.  Twitter lets you peek into the personal lives of celebrities in the most intimate way. At times, it can seem like an intimate conversation. Intimate in the voyeur-peeking- through- the- window, kinda way.I must admit, I am not that much of a tweeter, but I do have celebs that I follow. Kim Kardashian, June Ambrose and Erykah Badu just to name a few. I can’t help it. Looking at someone else’s life can be very interesting.

With the technology advances of the past few years, you don’t have to physically talk to someone to have a conversation. Conversations, meetings and agreements can be held via email and text messaging. Even more so, the music we know and love can be done digitally.

Erykah Badu’s 2008 album, “New Amerykah Part One: 4th World War” was completed on a Apple Macbook using the popular program GarageBand. She recorded the vocals using iChat and sent them to the album’s producers. They traded tracks and vocals for four months until the album was complete.

As recent as yesterday, she used Twitter to clear a  Paul McCartney sample for her forthcoming album. Badu’s 89,000 followers watched as she settled music business  in 140 characters or less.

This makes me wonder, what’s next? I often think we will be teleporting ourselves to where we need to be. It’s absolutely amazing how far we have come. Things aren’t left to wonder anymore. It is happening  and it is now. It’s  wonderfully scary and I am definately along for the ride tweeting all the way on my blackberry.

Thursday Night TV

Ummm… Thursday night. An array of television programming. NBA action, Grey’s Anatomy, Celebrity Rehab and my favorite, America’s Best Dance Crew better known as ABDC.

I am really excited about ABDC this season because of the groups from Atlanta. Being a Georgia Peach, it’s hard not to feel a since of pride when there is a group going hard for the city.

In this case, it’s Jungle Boogie.

They are the best on the show! With their energetic moves, swag and athletics they are sure to keep the other crews on their toes. Personally, I think they should give them the title right now.

Thursdays, MTV, 10 PM
