QUALITY

Vintage Chanel Sweater Suit


















The silhouette is a little conservative, but that can be fixed by wearing the jacket open with a sexy camisole and sky high heels. The quality, of the plush fabric and custom trims, is delicious.

STILL WAITING

While we wait for the the Put It in a Love Song music video to drop, let's watch this interview Alicia Keys did with Oprah last month.



I just love the type of chick A. Keys is and where she comes from; tomboy gone glam, down to earth, conscious, chill, sexy, funny. I hope to one day be recognized for emitting a similar inner light...
*Only thing is the whole Swizzy scandal [that she is totally not acknowledging] but, hey, we all human...

TIME CAPSULE



The new Kelis video got me thinking about this one from 2006, back when I was naive and hadn't even graduated college yet... Back when Kelis was still with Nas and first cut her hair... When she officially redefined herself as a style icon [in my book]... back when the shoe game wasn't half as fierce as its current state.

DESIGNER DRAWS


We saw the preview on the runway and now Alexander Wang's sporty lingerie is up for sale! Available as an expansion of the T by Alexander Wang Collection [his more attainable lounge wear line], the undies can be purchased at the designer's online shop.

WELL DONE



KELIS' NEW VIDEO FOR ACAPELLA. LOVE THE SCENERY, LOVE THE MAKEUP. INTERESTINGLY IT ALL MAKES SENSE OF THE NEW HAIR CUT.

GUESS WHAT?

MORE FLOWERS!
 Floral patterns are so popular this season, one would think they hadn't been in style for a decade but, nope every year the prints pop up, it's just this spring they are on steroids! I'm down with it though, clearly since I continue to post about the trend right? What's special about this floral entry is the way the patterns are photpgraphed.  In the March issue of Glamour, France the floral patterns are complemented with a hot pink lense flare.
this image has the green color enhanced. still dope.


JUST BECAUSE A PERSON GOT ON "THIS" WAY DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU'RE GONNA GET ON THE SAME WAY

That may not be your path, Maestro Knows...



Levi Maestro, the man behind MaestroKnows.com, stoped by Raphael Saadiq's, "Blakeslee Studios", to talk with TONE about originality and the reason why he started his website.

After hearing his inspiring point of view on self motivation, I had to see what he was working with and what was the first video I happened to click on? His piece in NYC with Complex Mag fashion director Anoma Ya Whittaker.


Just an average day for a humble dude and a hard working girl, eh?

SOMETHING ABOUT THESE SHOES IS TURNING ME ON




reads UNITED NUDE 


The Label Shoe
a play on exsessive branding
reads ANTOINE PETERS [the collaborating designer] all over 

I don't know if it's the minimalist architectural approach, the colors, or the writing that's got me smitten by United Nude's spring 2010 shoe collection.
