Passionately Bohemian

Style is a personal thing. And  for it to be properly executed, one must have the necessary fire to get the job done. And that is what Folake Huntoon does with her electric fashion sense. I don't believe this woman has fear in her vocabulary.She is  calculatingly bold with her sense of style. She inspires, she is  a muse. Bohemian is what this woman is all about. She always transmits a raw earthy sensuality to her outfits and this is my salute to her. Salut!   Did I say Boho as in Bohemian in the last sentence? Oops.  Folake is doing this to me.   Needless to say, I was once again faced with selecting only  4 pictures and repeatedly telling myself, " It's Okay, Mistress, you can write another article on her awesome style." The point is , I identify so much with her style that If I could, I'd post every single one of her styles. She's also been named a Style Icon on Chictopia , MTVStyle . They love her.  And so do we. She is a bold stylist. A true fashionista .

We HEART her Earrings.

And the fishnet stockings.

We love her choice of color for the bag 
And to prove how bold she is , coupled with
her innate understanding for color
She chose  gray boots
rather than  brown
And it works!

Great style begins with confidence and Folake , founder and head designer of WeWe Clothing, has it in abundance. GREAT PERSONAL STYLE, indeed.

All Gold and Navy

I am crushin' it on the Narciso Rodriguez Toga inspired Navy mini. It's autumn and it is
all about keeping it romantic, while being conservative. Enjoy.
 Erinnert, die 1970 Romantische Film,  Love Story( mit Ryan O'neal und Ali McGraw)? That's what this Navy gown reminds me off. Ethereal.

I've been reading quite a bit of German lately, hence the impromptu German. 

Thanks to Boris und Lilly!

My Gold Fetish

There's an absolute timeless elegance about gold.
Blame it on my fashionably narcissistic self. however,
If it is graceful, if it is bold without overreaching.
I am game.

Givenchy delivered a good dose of gold fever in this
omg.beauriful gold embellished gown.

  Tis' the season to be golden .

The new Mrs. Boris Becker aka Lilly Kerssenberg pulled off a timeless wedding attire for her wedding to the six time Wimbledon champion, Boris Becker . A white three piece trouser suit cinched with a brown Hermes belt.  This is breathtakingly gorgeous. so chic. 

Makes one wonder what the double three piece suit really represents. That they both wear the pants? They are both strong components of this marriage?  Was Baby Amadeus  already in  transit?  Hmm. well, I love the three piece suit idee! I'll give it a shot.

In line with a Boris Becker tale-  Ex-Wife, Barbara Feltus , new Mrs Arne Quinze, the famous Conceptual Artist, looked quite magical at her nuptials, with Arne Quinze held at her beachfront Miami home. wow. .so Becker! I am totally crushin' it on Barbara's gypsy themed nuptials.

Oscar, With Love, Giambattista

It's Autumn, my time of year. Lately, I have a strong jones for gowns. Fitted gowns, strapless gowns, long sleeve , short sleeve gowns. Maybe I am just feeling the effects of the romantic Fall season. Oscar De La Renta is a fashion icon for very rightful raison!~

Spoken For

Zac Posen's Z Spoke line was definitely the talk of the town . OMG! OMG! Was it the vibrant make-up or was his 80's influence Spring 2011 line that rocked? Let me tell ya, both! BOTH! Girls Wanna Fun  Zac, and you get it!  In the words of Solange Knowles, "I want the entire collection in my closet"  This is a gotta have it line. Now , if you are a shoe collector, you can cop the shoes worn by the models here from Steve Madden, he supplied the shoes. Let the viewing begin.  Lights, Camera, Action !

I can read your mind, Fashionistas, you want the whole collection as well. This is a brilliantly girly collection .

Von Furstenberg Inspires Once Again

This year's New York Fashion Week was definitely spectacular, to say the least. Electric is the more like it, with celebrities like Kanye West, Kimora Lee Simmons, Russell Simmons, etc tweeting their arses off on the beauty both in the city and the runways, if you weren't in NYC, you were on your way or like many clicking your heels , hoping you'd magically arrive smack dab in NYC to view the awesomeness designers had created  for its obedient citizens. Us.

                                                                We Capiche!

When you hear the name Diane Von Furstenberg, two things immediately come to mind, Wrap Dresses and Sophistication. She brought it again, ladies! and she went hard ! In fact, many fashion insiders were pleasantly surprised by the print influence in her Spring 2011 collection . Makes you wonder if her new creative director, Yvan Mispelaere had something do it with. Maybe, however, Von Furstenberg soley built the brand we know as DianeVon Furstenberg . We are sure she had much  influence in this collection.

It's All About Marchesa

I actually first heard of Marchesa , when Kim Kardashian rocked a Marchesa gown at this year's Emmy's. I basically made a mental note of Marchesa.  Fast forward to September 7th, 2010 and Marchesa is on the lips of all fashion conscious fashionistas. And this time, it was another actress ,as in, Gossip Girls Blake Lively in a darling cadmium yellow and sapphire fully beaded tribal strapless mini Marchesa dress.

I love Blake's interpretation of this mini . Anna Wintour summed it up best when she said ,

This is most definitely a  MakeUnaTellAm momenta!

Boxing Kitten

Whoa! This Boxing Kitten spread conjures up Shakira's " Waka Waka " video. I actually just fell in love with that video. As in a day ago. Il me rappelle l'enfance en Afrique .  BoxingKitten is a total girly line. Remember to input this brand when you think of enhancing your femininity. Anyone recall, Naima ?  Season 4 AMNTM cycle winner, who nabbed her crown in South Africa. The soft spoken, yet determined Naima. The reformed bad girl.      .....This is her twin , Nia.

The photographer transformed to model in this BoxingKitten photoshoot. I love BoxingKitten, Solange Knowles was the first to rock this relatively new brand. Since then , Alicia Keyes has also joined the ankara trend.

Unlike many, I don't believe there is a particular season for ankara, as wool is to winter. Ankara is versatile.  dubbed the stepsister to Cotton. The fabric of our livesAnkara is for every season. Boxing Kitten Founder and Creative Director, Maya knows how to perfectly translate the endless beauty in Ankara.

Stumbled upon this really cool song, this afternoon.
All I have to say is Wow!

Khloe, the Mrs.

Just caught sight of the  Season 5 Keeping Up With the Kardashians.  We knew there was gonna be drama , but not this much drama. For the longest time, the masses have been programmed to believe Kim Kardashian was the star. Scratch that. They all, have star quality.

Makeup by Troy Jensen

So ,Who is Khloe Kardiashian? Remember  Kim Kardashian's sister busted for the D.U.I. ?  Khloe, the  Kardashian whose past included a certain fondness for Coke. Khloe,the charmer, considering it took her 30 days to get hitched to Lamar.

Mrs. Odom.

MakeUnaTell Am has just dubbed her the charmer. If you don't believe me , take a look at her mother, Kris, as in, Kris Jenner. They must be Gypsies. Even Mama Kris has one heck of a tale in the romance department. Her current and second husband Bruce Jenner ,allegedly invited Kris' first husband, late criminal defense attorney, Robert Kardashian, to dinner to discuss an amicable finalization of the divorce. Yes, Kris, the step-mother to The Hills star , Brody Jenner. And mother to  Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Step Sisters to Brody Jenner & Kim, Khloe and Kourtney & Rob Kardashian  . Kris is one hot mom and now you can add grandmother to Kourtney's son , Mason Dash Disick . She's one hot mama!

From Left : Kris Jenner with daughter, Kourtney Kardashian

Tonite's episode of  the E! reality show, Keeping Up With Kardashian  says one thing. " Brace Yourselves. It's gonna be a heck of ride ." It became very clear, Khloe had adjusted quite well into married life and the status it affords her. By status, we mean many things as actually being in love and being showered with gifts ON top of love ;-) aya !!!

Newlyweds Lamar and Khloe Odom
photo captured hours after their nuptials.

She actually told older sister, Kourtney Kardashian,  Scott Disick was not allowed at the $4 million dollar home, she shares with hubby, Lamar. Makes you think of Mama Kris' objection to Scott On Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami . The Kardashian girls are most definitely a Mama Kris Production. This inevitably prompted Kourtney to pack up and leave Khloe's multimillion dollar abode. En Route to Kimmy's as in Kim Kardashian.Reggie Bush's Ex, Ray J's honey. The sextape vixen.

Super Famous Sister Kim Kardashian in a VEGAS spread.

The Kardashians In Love

For the Longest Time, We all thought Kim was going to become Saint's Quaterback, Reggie Bush's official Mrs. Only to be let down when they split, AFTER The Saints Superbowl Win . Love is never simple. Or is it?Just as Khloe moved up in status, Kim also upgraded on digs by purchasing  $4.8 million dollar home in Beverly Hills.

Khloe Odom totes a Louis Vuitton Alma Bag
"Love Don't Cost a Thing"

 Khloe is officially the only spoused up Kardashian Sister and it caught us all by surprise.

She also has the prenup to show how seriously in love she is with Lamar. The presence of a prenup in marriage, I believe, does not suggest lack of love, rather it proves the presence of love in a marriage.


$  500,000 for each year they are married.

$25,000 per month for general support.

  $5,000 per month for shopping.

  $1,000 per month for beauty care.

Lakers Courtside tickets for the entire Kardashian Klan.

And a new luxury vehicle at the end of every lease cycle.

These two are not splitting up any time soon.

"I have a wonderful husband who I am so grateful for. I want others to see the love Lamar and I share and understand that it’s ok to love and to be loved constantly."- Khloe Odom.
