Christopher Kane SPRING 2009 vs. 2010






i usually don't post to frequently about the fall or spring collections but the Christopher Kane Spring 2010 collection is boring and ugliness in a bowl and i know he could have came harder delivering more stylish designs. I'm not a designer, YET! =), and i know every collection can't be tight body cons that expose every hip bone and a beautiful figure but everything about the 2010 collection was was horrible to me especially the colors pink navy and chocolate, where are the bright happier spring colors. Spring 2009 stole my heart and chewed repeatly and made me put on a happy, but 2010 i'm not impressed.

Fashion Burrito



Fashion Burrito! Ingredients Ny Wesson, (A woman never tells her age.-Ny),Poverty C.A I'm roomates with Russle Brand. He's late for rent!

What are your favorite cosmetics?
Ny: Cosmectics? Can we use that in a sentence? ( I didn't think I had to study for this lol.) Uh I'm more of the "Plain Jane" type. I'm always naturual in the face UNLESS it's really necessary. Other than that, I'll just say MAC. Only because it's so mainstream. Everyone is using it! Lol

What accessories do you admire the most?
Ny: oh God! Earrings of course! I feel like a 28 yr old African guy without them. The irony in that is, I never wore earrings from the 6th grade all the way up to the 8th grade. In fact, I had to get my ears re-pierced. Now I can't even step foot out the door without them. I love gold and pearls. I think it looks lovely against darkskin women, and NAILS!

Who are your favorite designers?
Ny: I couldn't start this answer off without saying Stefano Pilati, Karl Lagerfeld, Miuccia Prada followed by; Frida Giannini, Alber Elbaz, Marc Jacobs, Luca Orlandi, Max Azria, Brian Litchenberg, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Riccardo Tisci, Paulo Melim and Andersson/Yvan Mispelaere. I would like to continue but I don't want to seem obsessed.

Describe your style?
Ny: My style? Who knows. You have to actually know me and know how I view life to know my style. I love anything that looks GOOD. Vintage, posh, forward, innovating, thrifty, chic, all of the above. It's like a very posh Granny who dates Russle Brand and she shops at UOF, Zara & thirft stores meets Compton and fly backs to London after robbing Rachel Zoe closet. (Are you still with me?)

Who inspires your stylish behavior?
Ny: It's not really WHO but more of WHAT inspires me. I'm highly influenced by my surroundings and things in the artsy nature. But if you insist on me dropping names here's a few. Hmm.. Where must I begin? My asian friend Grandma, Victoria Beckham, Allis Pellischi (she's just been added to my list) Eddie Sedgewick, Erykah Badu, Jimmy Hendrixs, Rachel Zoe, Chanel Iman, Hellz + Bellz, Grace Jones, Madonna, The Golden Girls, The UK. . . Blah blah blah.

What trends would you like to make happen all over again?
Ny: The trend where nobody cared what you wore and didn't judge you (if that ever occured.) But if we skim through our history books and find that, I would love to bring back the 1940's with their GEORGEOUS hair styles and AMAZING makeup. Skip the 50's & 60's and, hop right into the 70's with The Beatles and spread love with floral print blouses and Farrah Fawcett hairdo's, rummage through the 80's with Rick James but leave Kid & Play at the house parties, smoke a joint with my long nails in the 90's & kick ryhmes with N.W.A. Thsn sit back and enjoy the future.

What trends do you wish would die?
Ny: DEATH TO ALL who wears bright skinny jeans with little kid back packs and throw everybody in the salughter house who THINKS fashion is a "trend" and not a gift.

Who are your Favorite Music Artist(s)?
Ny: forgive me for being infactuated with Tupac. I love all good old school gangsta rap artists (Explains my name lol). Lauryn Hill is my favorite of all time. Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, India Arie, MF DOOM, Outkast, Delicious Vinly (shoutouts to Justin & Freak City), Nipsey Hussle, Joss Stone, Snoop, I love New wave music, Common, A Tribe Called Quest, N.W.A, Ice Cube, Sade, Floetry Sa-Ra, Cee-Lo/Gnarles Barkley, I mean my list could go on for DAYS.

Whats your Favorite Magazine(s)?
NY: This question is a No Brainer: GrungeCake Magazine OF COURSE! . . . We're quiet tasty!

YaYa's Conclusion: Ny Wesson of the proverty of california, =), your stylish behavior is a glorious danger zone filled with leopard print bras, lace, and ripped black tight, i love how your style easily changes, sometimes its all black everything and then sometimes its straight funky and colorful continue to be beasty and keep you cake GRUNGE boo.

fake doc martens. first these didn't bother me.....

now, i get upset when i see some girl who has no idea what doc martens are, wearing them because probably her friends think there cool ,not because they are like pow pow pow in her mind, but because they are acceptable, i think if you love doc martens with all the fluid in your heart and you cant afford them, then it ok to own a pair of fake doc martens, or you admire the shoes with all the pupil in your eyes you just dont think there worth the dolla dolla dollas thats fine too.

but hoodratting "smoking hoes" swine soup meow breaths yuppie mouths trash bags. your not approved

i miss the teen vogue fashion university weekend, i had a great great time. networking and meeting such beautiful people from design schools and from al over the globe, juicy parties and the the semi-boring seminars. i miss you all =***(

i miss being in new york city sleeping in a expensive hotel with no breakfast or microwave and loud ass hispanics playing music and putting there drunk ass behaviors on blast in the midnight hours, shaking my head at the rust on the toilets, $360 a night really holiday inn, NYC huh?

i miss feeling like i was going to a go see finding model scouts because the 4 Times Square building was ridiculously crowed filled with competitive edge when we came back from lunch break and everybody couldn't wait to see Thakoon.

i miss bianca, the girl from mexico who blew kisses when we were in the hallway brought marc jacob bags from saks and dresses from topshop with monster faces, oh and can't forget the amazing heels that made her about 5'9....and Saray the girl from Israel who is israelite who is beautiful who has chanel perfume, lipgloss, and a bag.

i miss the guy in the Hudson Theatre threatening to kick us girls out because we had lunch on the carpet, and he said we were blocking the door way when we weren't even, he was too attractive to be so rude...uggghh

i miss bonding with my auntie and laughing hard and asking endless directions, spending our monies on food. My aunt screaming CHECK because some girl was talking loudly about goats and junk, she was from the Bronx and she ranted about how she hated the city and doesn't want to come back.

i miss feeling like a mother fuckng NEWYORKER walking fast and junk.

i miss walking back to the hotel at night in the rain while having a feeling some guy was following me because he was behind me forever and then i went in the nail shop to ask if they did wild crazy nails and when i came back out he was there pretending like he was doing something, but i still felt safe in the city.

i miss NEW YORK, i will make it there

Empire State of Mind (feat. Alicia Keys) - Jay-Z

..i got this shirt in my teen vogue fashion u gift bag and thought it was the cutest and clever shirt in life, its says save the melons (our boobies ladies) on the front for brest cancer. i don't know when i gonna wear it maybe in the winter, summer, spring or next fall when i go to the tvfu 2010, but when i wear it i'm gonna feel bomb and super cool. =D


jourdan dunn is preganat.


dammit... thats what happen when i don't read the articles in teen vogue right away and look at the damn pictures, dammit dammit dammit, i know im being a drama queen about this situation but i'm shocked and confused and she is only 19, i know its girls in the world giving birth at 13 but they don't have a phenomenal rare career she is due in december so she is probably a round little pumpkin and such, ripping no runways, i hope she loses the weight and hop back on the runway right after the birth, we needs our black models, i seriously get tired of seeing the same old black faces so these designers need to get there shit together too, Teen Vogue didn't know she was pregnant during the shoot so those pictures had to be taken in the summer or her small frame shows no pregnancy and she is very fortunate.

"All I could think about was what my mom was going to say, my agency, my boyfriend," said Dunn, who is expecting a boy in December. "When I told my mom, she started crying and blaming herself. She got pregnant with me at the same age, and she said, 'I don't want you to have to go through what I did.'"

awwwww i really wish jordy the very best.

the bomb squad

i love cupcakes
