Black Ivy - from Street Ettiquette blog

The Black Ivy from Street Etiquette on Vimeo.

from Street Etiquette

Black Ivy holds a place in my heart because some of my matriculation includes the epitome of Black Ivy society (Morehouse College). Yes, I attend HBCU and I had a proper upbringing... I'm that type of guy

This is the style you see at most of the Black Ivy Schools and HBCU's mostly and is the basis of my fall wardrobe. Fashion reflects the lifestyle you live - want to live - and is (sadly) an indicator of where you are in your life...

The team at Street Etiquette ( Travis and Joshua) have another #epic fashion montage here and I'm loving it and living it too. I am #BlackIvy and #BlackExcellenc...

Mr. West BlackWhite


NWFW2010: 3.1 Philip Lim

Phillip Lim.


NYFW2010: Marc Jacobs...

It's undeniable my style aesthetic is Marc Jacobs hands down, his marc by Marc Jacobs line is always in  my closet season to season. This season is no different. Mr. Marc never disappoints in my eye... Perfect mix of quirkiness, grunge, and ssophistication without being too literal - Effortless Style like June Ambrosse

BlackWhite - Black Girl

Came across this on the Mr. Schumans blog (the Sartorialist)

#FW10 SImon Spurr

Simon Spurr - highly reguarded show during the fashion weeks for obvious reasons....  42 looks summing up my life - this far. This one speaks to me so I guess it's leather cropped peacoat in the spring time in Georgia....
Graphic plaid, deep pink pops (color), leather and lots of Gray - the new black? Maybe but he has that too + some white. Just some of my favorites though.

I need to befriend a PR showroom worker and get these pieces in my closet - my event, an HBCU quad and trust me it will get lots of press attention


The Hustle Never Stops - even on the weekends....

Saturday: Landlord calls me asking for rent at 8am and I've already paid it three days ago *blank stare*. Girl where my money go? Fishy! 

The best part of waking up is Foldgers in your cup next to the GQ, Vogue, and Vman magazine.Working on an upcoming project - btw, I can make a star (aparently)... She needs me to direct/style a shoot for her. I'm in demand now - she passed my name on to a producer who likes the work I did for her - the next project is for a major music video! I can never take a complement well, I'm natrually arrogant, and I'm not too humble - but I have humbling experiences - this being one. Director's assistant called me to touch base and to tell me what, who, and when - this was and is going to be #epic for me

Between planning for that and the projects in my life ( moving into this house) - I have to study for this Chemistry test - of course 4.0 status, nothing less...

Usually I do shopping and lunch on a saturday, but I'm in an area where the shopping is a damn tragedy - but excellent vintage shops though... Instead of busting through racks I played dress up and setteled with something I like.

The Fit: Vintage Levis Denim Jacket (now a vest), Haynes gray V-eck, American Eagle Camo Print Sweatshorts, and Jordans - the perfect weekend steeze.

This upcoming week is full of meeting and mark-ups, planning, scheming, studying, and any other thing that would keep me busy...

My affinity for black and white photography is not a well known secret. In my apartment I'm surrounded by famous black and white photographs. My inspiration came from the Ralph Lauren store in Atlanta. The Black Label section has a pool table with famous style icons like Muhammad Ali, Lenny Kravitz, Sammy Davis Jr., and the man himself (Ralph Lauren)...

I'll post any pic I come across because black and white photography is simple,elegant, cool - the basis of my style. Look at this pic, how they take a completely candid moment and memorialize it as something,... Well, cool..

UNDEFT'D (where u been? edition) - no pic necessary, reading is fundamental

March turned into May - and May was a blur that brought me to where I am currently... In down-home, country ass Fort Valley, ugh. My summer was filled with what I expected. Three months of gettin my name out there in the industry and making $$$$ - as well as lounge and club cameos; I lived for those moments #fadedmemory.

Now I'm back to this stuff and the response I get is "I thought you were going to Morehouse? (in a moking tone, very sarcastically) - Yes, my summer was great too and yours... Whatever - people these days... I give people just enough rope to hang themselves with - and I don't explain myself. Why bother. What you see is what you get.

My summer love affair in Atlanat was lusty, luscious, and luxurious... Midtown apartement, personal trainer, great food and drinks, great friends in a socially descrimianting crowd (meaning, we were the young, fly, rich kids always making a secene (without saying not a damn thing) - you know.

Between internships, school (at Morhouse College),various jobs in styling and branding (944 Magagzine) I think I have life downpacked... I take that back - I do! Right now I'm making lemonaide with lemons, but until next semester....

At least my name is out there now - only up from here....

Fireside Chat - Fonzworth Bentley

Fonzworth Bentley gave us a sneak peak at our school during a lecture he did. These images get stuck in your mind. A captivating, poignant reminder of the past - and just in time for Black History Month.
