You got the itch, we got the fix. "The Knux" comprised of Krispy Kream and Rah Almillio are about to tear shit up. Previously known as The knuckleheads, this "Garage-Hop" duo are about to bring that alt. hop into full effect. Originally from New Orleans they migrated to Houston after Katrina and have since been working on their new album "Remind Me In 3 Days" out of LA. Don't sleep people. Check the track in the "Listening Pleasure" section at the bottom of the blog. Fiya!

Croco Large Clutch – I think I’ve mentioned this, but I really don’t like carrying big purses around. They weigh your whole outfit down and can make people look all hunched up. A beautiful clutch however does no such thing. This one is big enough to store everything a purse will, but comes sans-slouch. Plus its like 30$. -Ms.-
Mama Lace T – According to a VERY trustworthy source, MAMA is one of the three top female streetwear brands around. On point, from running the business, quality of the clothing to all around style. As far as I know, you can’t find anything else like these tshirts, except of course MAMAs lace fitted. Only for the laydeeez. -Ms.-
Odyn High Rise Scooter Short – Summer is coming!!! My sneaks have been hiding from the salt and the slush outside and the only thing better than bringing my babies out from their cardboard prisons is finally being able to show some leg! High rise shorts make your legs look longer, so pair with heels and don’t expect to pay for a drink all night. -Ms.-
NDEUR Heels – For those who haven’t heard of this guy, get SCHOOLED! Remember when everyone was colouring in their white AF1s to add a lil sumthin? Well here’s someone to do it for you! And since zillion-coloured sneakers are a lil played out (sorry GN$), he does it on heels. These are but one of the designs he’s done, but bring him a sketch and he’ll customize you your very own one of a kind pair of shoes…something no AF1 can do for you. -Ms.-
"Once" written and directed by John Carney. In a nut shell - A modern-day musical about a busker, a Czechoslovakian immigrant and their eventful week in Dublin, as they write, rehearse and record songs that tell their love story. Posing the question - How often do you find the right person? It took "the best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Song" last night at the Oscars...if they didn't win I'd boycott the Oscars for life, not a big task - but still. Starring Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova...take note these two are not actors, just struggling musicians with amazing talent. John Carney made this film for under $100,000 and used musicians from his own circle in Dublins indie folk scene. An incredible inspiration. This is what happens when you say fu$k it, I can do it. Top shelf...one of the illest films of all time.

Claw vs. West “And SUNglasses” Gazelle – These ones are fresh cuz they’re made by one of the illest writers in the world, CLAW! Yeah I know there are tons of great artists out there, some even better than her I would argue, but she’s one flyyy chick commin up in a male-dominated culture and I have to respect her for that. Plus her tag name is great. CLAAAAW!!!!!!rawr. And somehow these glasses make me feel badder than usual when I rock them. -Ms.-
Mishka Lobster Roll Tee – Mishka keeps it real with a take on the I (heart) NY tees. Yeah there’s a million copies out there, but none stand out as much as this umm…blobby thumb monster? Hey I (ugly thing) NY too y’all! Show some looove. -Ms.-
BobbyHBobby Chrono Series (white/white/silver) – My girl just recently turned me on to these watches…definitely the next step up from those geeky gold watches, which I still like...don’t get me wrong, but these ones are classier and not every person in the world has one/knows about them. They look fly as hell and are definately worth copping asap. -Ms.-

Chanel Vinyl Coco’s Cabas Tote – I.AM.IN.LOVE. This bag is everything I’ve been looking for this season. Big and roomy for all my school stuff, almost shapeless with just enough bunch, and its vinyyyl. Plus, speaking of NYC, it happens to be the it bag in the city (which isn’t why I love it I promise - just givin you the 411). -Ms.-
7 For All Mankind Lucy Double Knit Pant – I don’t normally go into a lot about pants unless they’re really worth talking about, so don’t expect much of this, but these are the most comfortable things I've ever put on. They feel like leggings, but they're sturdier and they bunch all cute at the ankles, plus they have the 5 pockets like denim. The look of denim without that pinch at the waist when you sit down - hell yaaaaa. -Ms.-
Nike Dunk Hi SB (Jason Voorhees) – last, but MOSDEF not least, the kicks. These are probably my fabourite SBs right now. They’re a late addition to the 2007 halloween pack, but for once none of that wack horror themed fake scar shit or silly pumpkin prints/skull heads (sorry to anyone who owns the dia de los muertos…price tag and HYPE do not equal style). PEACE. -Ms.-
