Are you a fashion killa?

So sorry for the long hiatus! I have some really awesome fashion news to share with you from my time away from the blog. But in the meantime, and as my apology, check out this song by A$AP Rocky that I just realized is like the fashion girl anthem. It’s called Fashion Killa:

A shout out to Wang and Lang?! Do you love this song or what?

Keep werkin’,

P.S. A$AP is dating my favorite model Chanel Iman! Love it!

Check out the acoustic version of one of my favorite songs on the album, Replay:

Go girl!  Okay, now a lesson in werk from this pro. Her style is the perfect mix of cool with a definite hip-hop influence and girly with a glamorous vibe. Love love love this girl’s style!

Street style is near and dear to our hearts as fashion connoisseurs of the 21st century, right? Amy Levin, the founder of College Fashionista took that idea and ran with it. Fresh out of college, she started this fab site and it took off:

Yeah, it’s still Thursday. Is this week dragging by or what? When it starts to feel that way, I try to look for ways to be inspired—for beauty in every day things—for extraordinary spaces:

rag & bone.

The Rag & Bone 2014 Ready-to-Wear collection is definitely my favorite from this season’s  New York Fashion Week.   I am blown away  by the fact that I love everything that walked down the runway—from the colors, to the silhouettes, to the inspiration. As much as I’m thrilled the weathers about to cool down, I can’t wait from Spring and Summer, so I can wear these trends. Rag & Bone killed it:

Are you as blown away by this collection as I am? I’d love to hear from you!

Chanel.

No, not that Chanel. I’m talking about Chanel Iman, my favorite model:

Okay so far, we’ve seen that Chanel knows how to werk. Amiright? She dresses cool on her days off. Amiright? Now is she a role model? Let’s see:

Oh, yes she is. Who’s your favorite model?

Rita Ora.

Today’s lesson in werk will be taught by Rita Ora, a singer-songwriter reigning from the UK who was most recently in the news for an early morning fast-food run with our fave supermodel, Cara Delevingne. In my mind, though, this girl is all about her fashion. She’s our resident risk-taker. Don’t know what I mean? Take a look:

This girl just wears what she’s wearing. And it works. And she werks. Do you love Rita Ora’s style? What about her song, “Shine Ya Light”?

What do you think? I’d love to hear from you!

Shall we take notes on how to werk? Let’s go back to 1965:

Slip-on sneaks.

Laces are so last-season. Literally. We’re heading for a serious throwback—like Kindergarten, gone glamorous—and slipping on our sneakers. What? Check it out:
