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 :)
