Dress Like A Raven

ravensgameday

While I am a self professed girlie-girl, I also have a deep love for professional football. And an even deeper love for my hometown team, the Baltimore Ravens. While I’m no longer living in Baltimore, I still represent by wearing my purple on Purple Fridays, as should you.

Any good outfit starts with a team shirt like this one from Kohl’s. Add in tough elements like a Topshop moto jacket, J. Crew distressed boyfriend jeans, Rebecca Minkoff geometric hoops and Mango bowler bag. Finish off with fun elements like these Nike Purple Free 5.0 Tr Fit 4 Sneakers and a deep purple lippie like this one from Butter London (on a great sale for just $10).

The Only Christopher We Acknowledge is Wallace

biggie hat

 

This is a fashion blog, so I’m not going to bog you down in the reasons why “we” don’t acknowledge Christopher Columbus as a “hero”. But as a HBCU grad who was raised by an HBCU grad, I am contractually obligated to comment on it in some way. Anyway, this outfit is also inspired in part by the Pimp C interview at the beginning of F*ckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt:

“The reason why we like this this jewelry and this diamonds and stuff,
They don’t understand is because we really from Africa,
And that’s where all this stuff come from
And we originated from kings, you know what I’m saying
So don’t look down on the youngsters
Because they wanna have shiny things
It’s in our genes, know what I’m saying
We just don’t all know our history so…”

Of course, start off with a Biggie Hat and pair with a leather DVF sweatshirt, TopShop joggers and Alexander McQueen combat boots. Add in the bling with a Micheal Kors gold chain and gold Milly clutch. Of course finish it off with Tom Ford lipstick (is it obvious I’m having a Jay-Z moment?) and Coco Chanel Nior perfume.

Enjoy your day off and go “discover” something.

What To Wear To Howard’s Homecoming: Game Day

gameday

The day of the Homecoming Game is very exciting, but to be honest, most of the excitement comes off the field. Someone asked me who we were playing this year, and I had zero idea. Saturday is reserved for showing your out of town friends and family around and catching up with your friends at the tailgates and on the yard. While nalia (can I use that?) is clearly popular on game day, why not try expressing your school spirit in a fashionable way by mixing blue and red prints. Start off with a striped Amour Vert Brigette T-Shirt Dress and mix in a leopard print scarf Betsey Johnson scarf. It’s still chilly, so layer on a long, thick cardigan like this one from American Eagle and lined boots like these from Charlotte Russe. Add a bit of fun with a fringe bag from Forever 21 and SAK hoop earrings. Finally finish off with crowd favorite Ruby Woo lipstick.
