MadeMe & Yours Truly Spring '09 lines


Yours Truly

Yay! My favorite new lines have dropped their spring '09 line for this year!!!


Erin Magee, owner and designer of the MadeMe brand has arrived with several necessities for your springtime closets. Whether it's the "Do The Right Thing-esque" biker's hat, or the every day essential plaid button up (throw it over anything during the cool summer nights and I guarantee you'll have a full proof outfit in minutes) or the mesh tank covering just enough to keep you "looking hot" but "very cool" LOL, anyway you do it you'll be GOOD walking out into the coming sweltering heat this summer :)

Here are some of my favorites from the Lookbook! Let me know what yours are!

This plaid button up also comes in black and can be seen worn on Nicole one part from the duo NI** Sky in their first video from their second album, "The Musical". I was at the shoot for the track "On Some Bullsh**" where the girls were styled by good friend Ms.Rose Garcia along with MadeMe's woman in charge, Erin Magee. Can't wait to see the final product! Also check the new layout for the MadeMe website along with the MadeMe x Ni** Sky mixtape "Strike A Pose II". Download it here. I'm loving it! Complete old and new school Madge ;)

Yours Truly

My girl Jenny has offered up a tiny peek into what Yours Truly has in store for spring ladies. Above The Clouds, Spring '09 preview features 4 different cuts, 2 new Spring Logo designs and that's not even the half of it. Again, you don't want to sleep on this. Rep your coast with the East Coast vs. West Coast tee.. um Jenny no love for the middle? For real we're from Chicago, what's up with that?? JK! Also check out the new long sleeve off the shoulder tops, great for cool nights when you just need to throw something on over your tank, or bra top, with legging or cut off shorts! We'll have to wait to see the full line, but until then here's a bit from her blog.

Going to Magic this year? Meet the lady behind the line Jenny Truly, have a drink in her suite at The Hotel at the Mandalay Bay, (Jenny's does it big yall) and check out the full Spring and Summer collections :)

VOTE HERE NOW!! for julie thevenot & Rabbit On The Run!!

hey everyone, my good friend Julie from Paris is back in the states and up for nomination! wow she moves quick! Julie is owner of the cute little line, Rabbit On The Run. She's being nominated by My Daily Candy's NY style edition for their "Sweetest Things 2008".

Here's some info on her brand.

The name Rabbit On the Run, completely reflects the different, independent, free and spontaneous universe of the brand.
The motifs are a result of various experiments and research around cutting and folding, which led to unplanned symmetry.
The obtained reworked shapes are very singular and decline an identity; they take part in a game of contrasts between primitive drive and ultra-contemporary aspiration.
Rabbit on The run is a field, which is open to any form of inspiration be it festive, playful, ethnic, savage and urban at the same time.
The cuts are simple and over-sized, conceived in neutral and natural materials, in opposition to the strong character of the hyper colored prints.
Rooted from a multi-disciplinary artistic background, the brand keeps it's sharp eye opened to everything which surrounds it.


The big bag is one of my favorites :)

congrats julie!
