Casket Sharp: Barrington Levy

Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em.

Being the sole party responsible for making 98% of the general public (okay, just me) interested enough in Shyne’s debut album to download it illegally from Napster washes away the fashion faux pas sins committed by Barrington Levy but I decided to publish this post anyway as a cautionary tale to the baby boomers of Crunkland.

Dress your age and not your shoe size people.

Is Jackie Christie dressed to depress or dead fresh? Just like a teenage girl dating a dude who is a sneaker head for the first time,  auntie slipped on a pair of her best stretch leggings, Gucci baseball cap and a new pair of Jordans to step out to a viewing party for the reality series in Beverly Hills on Monday night (March 3). 

What’s your verdict on her style?

Don’t be surprised if your favorite stud rapper (I’m looking at you, Da Brat) pops up rocking a Jason Collins jersey in their latest misogyny-ladden music video. It’s a hot item.

NBA Senior Vice President for licensing and business affairs Vicky Picca announced on Tuesday (February 25) that Collins’ No. 98 Brooklyn Nets uniform is the top-seller on NBA.com, besting the likes of LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin. ”Jason Collins’ return to the league represents a historic moment, and fans continue to show their support by (buying) Jason’s jersey,” said Picca.

The 13-year league veteran — who became first openly gay man to play in the NBA  last week – plans to wear No. 98 starting tonight against the Trail Blazers as a tribute to Matthew Shepard, who was murdered in 1998 because he was gay.

Touch me in the morning and just walk away! Behold, someone more deserving of a Vogue cover than House Mother Kanye’s line sister.

Celebrity hairstylist Derek J generously treated onlookers to a visual all you can eat buffet of couture while attending the Nolcha Fashion Week event in New York City on Wednesday (February 12).

The ‘Fashion Queens’ co-host donned a pair of looks for the evening: a Cecily Tyson-esque all black ensemble and a bold red pant suit befitting of a Delta Sigma Theta member looking to get choose at a Kappa Alpha Psi conclave. You can expect an onslaught of plus size fashion bloggers to create look for less blog posts centered around the latter look by the weekend.
