Urban Outfitters have brought me back to elementary school by releasing a Limited Edition line with Lisa Frank… Yes, LISA FRANK! When I saw the email about the line, I screamed out of excitement. I was OBSESSED with Lisa Frank as a kid and actually owned many of the pieces in the line (shown below). Which I will be repurchasing to collect. Also, Urban Outfitters were lucky enough to get an interview with Lisa Frank.. which is posted below also.

“Color Blocking” is very big fashion trend as of right now. On my last trip to Goodwill, I found this crazy colored striped Jones New York shirt. My mom kept telling me the shirt was ugly, but I saw so much fashion potential.
I paired the shirt with green skinny jeans from Target, which actually were my sister Brandy’s christmas present. LOL.
For accessories, I paired it with black cross earrings from Forever 21 & black and red bangles.
My outfit could’ve gone for a tribute to the late 80s/90s too, right?
How did I pull off my color block inspired look?
When you meet someone the first thing they look at are your teeth. I know I look at people’s teeth & there’s nothing worst than seeing someone with yellow teeth. To keep my teeth pearly white, I use the crest 3-D white strips. They are AMAZING!
To appropriately use the 3-D whitestrips, you have to put the strips on twice a day for thirty minutes. Make sure you don’t brush your teeth before you put the strips on. You have to keep the regime for a week and you’ll have teeth white as snow! 🙂
I have been using the strips and love them…. If anyone uses them please comment & let me know your opinion.
Anna Dello Russo styled this shoot featuring model, Crystal Renn, wearing hats with various designer logos.
The style of the shoot is very Anna Dello Russo. Her personal begins to show in the shoot. I would have to say my favorite is probably the Chanel look with the oversized Chanel #5.
What is your favorite look?
Comment & let me know!
To recap from the first post, I am currently trying to “recreate” this pair of black studded boots I spotted on a girl.
Here are the original boots:
On Sunday, Tee (the coworker that was with me when I saw the boots) had to go to Nine West for boots for herself and came back with good news. She found black boots for me and on top of that Nine West was doing a “Family & Friends” 25% off special on all of their shoes in store.
When I was able to go on my break I went straight to Nine West and saw these beauties…
The perfect boot, right? The boot was originally $179… then it had an 50% sticker.. and the additional 25% off. Adding up the a grand total to about 69 dollars with tax.
You can’t tell me i’m not a fashionista on a budget! 🙂
This project is starting off in the right direction. Now I’m just working on find the right studs & spikes to order for the boots. I’ll update with more information soon! 🙂
This is just a nice heads up to anyone planning on buying me something for the holiday season. I didn’t ask for much! This is actually much smaller than last year. 🙂
What is everyone asking for this year?
THE TITLE “KRITEEK’D” COMES FROM HOW I IDENTIFY MY WORK AND GENERAL ASPECT ON LIFE. WE ARE ALWAYS BEING WATCHED/JUDGED, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO ARE PURSING THINGS THAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED “DIFFERENT” BY SOCIETY OR IN MY CASE, ENTERING THE COMPETITIVE WORLD OF ART. I FEEL LIKE THE CRITICISM THAT WE GET SHOULD BE EMBRACED AND TAKEN AS A TOOL TO KEEP CHASING OUR DREAMS. IN MY OPINION, IF YOUR NOT BEING TALKED ABOUT, YOUR DOING SOMETHING WRONG.
This is a quote from artist ,Jermaine Clark, on the meaning behind “Kriteek’d”. The title behind his business, which, is his artwork. Jermaine recently graduated from Alabama A&M with a degree in art.
Once getting to Jermaine, I knew I wanted to post about his artwork. So I interviewed Jermaine about his art, inspiration, and fashion… Take a look at the interview below.
1. When did you start painting?
I had been drawing and being creative my whole life, but my first complete painting was done my junior year in high school in a design class I took as an elective. My teacher was so impressed she entered it into a local contest, I placed 3rd amongst 100 entries and haven’t stopped since.
2. What do you wish to accomplish with your art?
What I wish to accomplish with my art is that I make pieces that live longer than I do. Timeless pieces that will be seen and have some effect on my kid’s kids. Also every artist dream is to make a living off their work, mine is to inspire someone else to make a living doing what they love.
3. Who are your biggest inspirations?
My biggest inspiration is my mom. She’s been through a lot and I cant wait for the day when I call her and tell her I’ve made my dream a reality.
4. Do you feel art & fashion are related?
Art and Fashion are synonymous in every aspect. From the creative process to different styles and artist. Both encompass its own significant impact on social society that can date back as far as anyone can remember. The only other subject as important is music. In which still, all coincide. Art, music, fashion.
5. How would you describe your personal style?
I would consider my style, laid back casual. I like comfortable articles that I can just throw on, on a lazy day, but I also like to layer up with sweaters, scarves, and jackets when the occassion calls for it. There also was a point in time where I owned over 200 pairs of sneakers, but the older I get, I’m just fine with a few pair of boots and converse all stars in a couple colors.
Here are a few of Jermaine’s pieces:
