Loving Homiés and Benzo: Pun-tees.
I don’t know about you, but I love a pun-tee. Brian Lichtenberg’s “Homiés South Central” t-shirts, have graced the streets of fashion capitals and the pages of fashion blogs the world over, making the tees street style famous. Nevertheless, Lichtenberg has added a number of other brands to his pun-tactic collection of BLTees, including “Canine” and “Feline” for lovers of Celine, “Burr so icey” for fans of Burberry and if you love Gucci you’re sure to adore “Bucci”.
Lichtenberg, however, isn’t the only one to cash in on brand name puns. In case you get as irate as I do when I hear mispronunciations of a fashion house, JP&L will help everyone along with their “Air-Mehz Paris” sweater. I’ve previously blogged about COI NYC (click here to view the post), a fictitious government agency, who boasts a string of street-smart t-shirts including “Benzo” and “Brawlmain”.
Adding a little whisper of comedic value, these pun-tees will bring your street style up a level.

Brand Alert: Revolution Riche.
Whilst a classic grey sweater, most likely a T by Alexander Wang, is a staple, bringing a smidgen of chic urban to each outfit, sometimes a wardrobe needs a piece that’s loud. Loud enough to attract lazy eyes passing you on the street, loud enough to take your otherwise ‘jeans and a sweater” outfit to a new level….louder than, dare I say it, a neon Kenzo SS13 jumper.
Revolution Riche delivers this volume of creativity, offering a well-curated street collection of sweaters that almost hypnotise your startled eyes. If you’re feeling like P Diddy then the sweater covered in hundreds is for you, or if you’re feeling arty and cultural then “The Virgin” crew neck just might tickle your fancy, either way you’ll find one design that will make you salivate…just a little. I hear your screaming thoughts of the fact that summer is rolling in, albeit slowly, and you don’t want to be in that uncomfortable situation where you thought you’d be fashion forward but instead you’ve only succeeded in bathing in a pool of your own sweat, fear not for these eye-catching creations are now available in a lightweight summer version. And they ship internationally.
What’s stopping you?

We ladies will go to great lengths to achieve the perfect look. This usually includes painstakingly adhering synthetic lashes onto our own less than adequate, unruly hairs sprouting from our eye lids.
But I write this bringing good news, the days of synthetic are over! Yes, no longer will your false lashes be too long that you’re spending your evening blinking profusely, too dark and thick that you look like you’ve been punched in the eye or too heavy your neck hurts from tilting your head upwards in order to see anything.
Velour lashes are 100% genuine mink, bringing a fabulously natural look to your eyelashes and come in a variety of styles from those who need a little boost to those who want to channel their inner glamour puss. The band of the eyelash is also designed to aid easier application, which means no more glued-shut eyes. Lightweight, can be reused up to 25 times, boasting speedy worldwide delivery, and selling out, unsurprisingly, at IMATS, it’s about time to turn to Velour for eyelashes that will have everyone you look at, all aflutter.

YSL’s Tri-colour Top Coats
The nail industry seems to be enjoying its time in the spotlight as it keeps churning out different textures and finishes and colours that make us want to squeal with excitement.
But when I saw YSL’s tie-dye top coat innovation, I did not squeal audibly, no, my jaw swung open and I remained silent, in awe of this creation. The four different coats can be applied on plain nails to give then an interesting sheen or on top of painted nails to add a shimmering pigmented edge.
Once again the nail industry has conjured up new and delightful ways to persuade us to part with our money….

Summer 2013 trend: Slip-on Sneakers
Sneakers and high fashion have become very close friends recently, nevertheless, the high-top has ruled the roost - there has been no shortage of instagrammed Christian Louboutin and Guiseppe Zanotti high upper sneakers gracing our smartphone screens.
But this summer, fashion has welcomed a new member of the trainer family: the slip-on skater. Vans has teamed up with Kenzo for a second season, producing a comfy, convenient summer shoe with a clouded leopard print in sumptuous shades. Celine, has contributed to the trend, with their own collection of slip-ons which boast a chunkier tread, available in simple block colours and more adventurous prints. Finally, shoe giant Jimmy Choo has added three glittering versions to its rather broad range of sneakers, which are subtle enough for a sparkle in the daytime.
Perfect for lazy summer days and casual, yet fashion-foward looks, all three of the aforementioned skater shoes are now available for purchase.
