Define Perfect.

Here we are again..

Been working on life. My life.
While working on life, this topic was for lack of a better word, thrown in my lap. My questions asked went something like this; "If one truly existed, what would she look like? What certain character traits would she possess? Is the perfect woman based on her beauty or how great her personality is?" 
Hmm... I don't know about you, but the ideal of a "perfect woman" seems to be a custom preference.
There is that guy that can't look at a woman, let alone conversate with one he's not physically attracted to. But, there is also that man that looks deeper. The man who admires a woman for intellect, rather her the shape of her body and, sway in her hips. Feel me..?
Remembering from one of my Greek Mythology courses, a story of a sculptor who fell in love with his statue, it kinda help me put things into perspective. "In Ovid's narrative, Pygmalion was a Cypriot sculptor who carved a woman out of ivory. According to Ovid, after seeing the Propoetides prostituting themselves (more accurately, they denied the divinity of Aphrodite and she thus ‘reduced’ them to prostitution), he was not interested in women, but his statue was so fair and realistic that he fell in love with it. In the vertex, Venus (Aphrodite)'s festival day came. For the festival, Pygmalion made offerings to Venus and made a wish. "I sincerely wished the ivory sculpture will be changed to a real woman." However, he couldn’t bring himself to express it. When he returned home, Cupid sent by Venus kissed the ivory sculpture on the hand. At that time, it was changed to a beautiful woman. A ring was put on her finger. It was Cupid’s ring which made love achieved. Venus granted his wish."

This man really fell in love with a statue!
Wonderful story. He saw no one else as being as perfect as her. "Fair and realistic" are the words used to describe this "perfect woman."
Now, for the men out there... If you're asked to describe your ideal "perfect woman," would "fair and realistic" fit that description? Probably not.
I'll put it like this; if you asked a room of 30 guys this question, if you do not get 30 different answers.... I bet you'd get 29.

...On My Fashion Tip... Just Some Ideas...

Here we are again..

It's been a while, but hey! It's due to technical difficulties and moving across the country.. Coming soon- CONSISTENCY!

Anyway. Styling my first client. Due to me being so far, this is my long distance way of styling. Just some ideas.. Everything featured here is what she will look like this Fall.. And, yes that is a demand YOU.

 Class fit.. On the way to a photo shoot.. Comfortable, yet fashionable. (the shorts would look amazing on you FYI.)

This fit minus the hat (for you maybe a "newspaper boy" hat) is so you!

With these boots .. Love it!!
Everyday outfit.. Plus those shoes you just got. FAMOUS.

I know these are males, but think outside the box. Imagine these with a nice pair of Oxford heels or ankle boots. You'd kill it. I know..
This is because you don't dress up enough. Simple black form fitting dress, leggings for those sexy long legs of yours...

...And shoes like this

A Colorful or Floral Jacket you can wear with a tee and jeans AND any of your heels.. Remember we're getting away from the comfortable sneaker phase.

Here's a bunch of ideas for shoes chica...

Of course you need your knee high boots..

I know what I said about heels, but these are hot! Plus, I know you gone want your sneakers..

Fashion Fall... 2010 Addition

So, Fall is my favorite season...
The leaves.. the weather.. the fashion!!
If you're anything like me, you're probably thinking, "What will be my look this Fall?"
Well here's a look at some... LOOKS


More About Nothing.. No Days off

Here we are again..
Rapper Wale's mixtape is out. It's been out for a while, but I heard it for the first time last night during one of my many "feel good sessions." And, I must say I am really impressed!!! It goes so hard in a real relaxed, kinda sexy way. Wale is what I like to call a real lyricist; he doesn't have a gimmick, and in actuality he doesn't need one. He just flows to the beat. His music is the music you can just sit and bang your head to.. while doing absolutely nothing. And, for you smokers.. Yes, it's the ultimate blowed music..

You know the songs that make you smile, and feel special like that person is talking to you? Well, it's a song called, "The Ambitious Girl" it's so cleverly made.. like poetry.. It is.

For my fellas..
"Manipulation" is for you for so many reasons.. check out the mixtape, it seriously goes Hard.

                                                        ENJOY =)

My First Post.. No Title Needed

So, A little about myself...
The picture above tells it all. The way I look is very important to me. It's important to be different from other people. I mean, why blend in with what everybody else is doing? My famous saying is,"who's gone do you better than you?" Nobody.. I'm sure some smart ass is saying, "Hey, Wayne said that!" But, I said it first; remember that!

Now, that's clear..
I'm a 20 year old college student at Columbia College Chicago. I love that place, which makes moving to Florida next week that much harder. I'm starting fresh!! A whole new me. And, I plan to take you along on the journey..

Fashion.. Music.. My life; whether you think it's interesting or not.. And everything in between..
