Thrift Find: Oriental Jacket

My most recent thrifting treasure is this oriental inspired jacket. It's reversible which gives it huge brownie points for versatility. I know it's summertime & the sun is blazing but I don't care lol, I might wear it on a cooler day when it rains.

This cute little number was only $5 :]

The Weeknd - The Birds [Part 1]

Love this.
I'd love to go to a concert featuring The Weeknd, Frank Ocean, & Jhene Aiko.

D'Banj Joins G.O.O.D. Music

& It all started with a tweet ...

Congrats to the Nigerian superstar D'Banj for signing with Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music ! When I first saw this tweet I was ecstatic at the prospect of a collab between the two. Little did I know that they would soon join forces on a much larger scale. Wednesday, June 8th D'Banj confirmed through his twitter account that he had joined the G.O.O.D. music roster; what a fitting birthday gift for both him & Mr. West.

I love Kanye, I love Nigerian music, this is beyond amazing to me. I'm so excited about how this will hopefully bring Nigerian/African music to the main stream market. I can not WAIT to here what D'banj & Kanye have in store.

Saw this on tumblr via blackfashion.

What a powerful message.

Love all the young, ambitious royalty of the world :]

Haute Buy: Rania Dress by Cheap Monday

I came across this sheer Rania dress by Cheap Monday and instantly fell in love with its versatility. It can be worn as a throw over to the beach with just your swim suit underneath, or with a tank, your favorite jeans, & some cute heels for a casual night out. Or something more my style - a sassy bandeau top, with a tight skirt & wedges.
Raina Dress
Purchase it at Revolve Clothing for $85.

The Heart Gallery Returns June 26

Hello Hauties!

I am proud to inform you that Jersey's own The Heart Gallery will be returning Sunday, June 26th. The Heart Gallery is an exhibition of cultural art, including music, fashion, live art, and poetry. I really missed this event during their hiatus, because it's not often you find culturally savvy events in New Jersey.

If you're in the Tri State area I would definitely suggest you come out!

For serious inquiries on vendors & performers email theheartgallery@gmail.com

Shop Mara Hoffman swim wear online or find your nearest retailer.

Wale x Tiara Thomas x The Cloud

When Wale posted the link for More About Nothing last summer, I was its #1 fan, instantly. It was the only thing I listened to for weeks (it made great studying music for my summer classes). I would honestly listen to the whole thing nonstop, however #19 The Cloud always stuck out to me as a favorite. I don't even smoke, that's how you know its bomb! lol. When he tweeted that he was finally dropping the video for it, I was low key hype! I generally love all things Wale, particularly his videos (cc: The Breakup Song, Family Affair).

HOWEVER - I was not too impressed by this one. Maybe I was expecting too much. I mean surprisingly, Wale looked kinda nice - with his hair pulled back, dope jersey & (newly?) toned arms lol. The song, accented by Tiara's amazing voice, is definitely an A. The video though? ehhh, B-/C+ at best.

But, that's just me, take a look for yourself:

Released 5/30/11 by @Wale via Twitter

Tea Time

So lately I've only been updating sporadicly, (when the moons align), so I believe some catching up is in order.
This gab session is sponsored by some absolutely divine pomegranate tea & my bomb new toe nail color (as it drys lol) :]


Yes, yes! Throw some confetti in the air & pop a balloon or two, ya girl now proudly has a Bachelor's of Science in Molecular Biology, with double minors in Chemistry and Psychology. *Whew*! A mouthful, trust me I know, I've had to say it often enough these last few weeks haha. I really thank God though that I finished in four years, filled with amazing, lifelong memories :]

2. Soooo .. What's Up Next?

Right now I'm just happy to breathe without the thought of a Immunology test or research paper looming over my head! I've been on the job hunt, trying to put my pretty degree to use (not nearly as fab as it sounds or SHOULD BE! hmph), but I'm confident I'll be landing something spectacular sooner then later :]. And also sooner then later, I'll be going back to school (Med School), because I know if I get too comfortable I won't ever want to lol.
But in the mean time ....
FUN - wooo!
SUN - wooo!!
work (soon) - blah

Most importantly (to my Hauties) - blogging!
I have time & time has me lol, So blog I shall, & Read you Must! :]

Hugo Boss S/S 11 x Gabriel Aubry

Hugo Boss has chosen Gabriel Aubry to head their Boss Selection Spring/Summer 2011 campaign. Aubry looks quite chic in these pieces; I love the perfectly tailored fit. For my dapper young gentlemen, I think these would serve your wardrobe well.
What do you think ladies & gents, haute?

Rolling in the Deep x (Jamie xx) Remix

The stunning and soulful Adele did not disappoint with her second album, 21. Her first single Rolling in the Deep is an exciting and chilling mix of blues and disco, powered by her emotionally chilling voice. The song is already amazing, but when I came across the Jamie xx shuffle remix I was blown away! The added deep tribal beats are so infectious, it's hard to listen to it just once.
I want my summer to sound like this! lol

Check it out:

There's a fire starting in my heart,
Reaching a fever pitch and it's bring me out the dark...

Bang Bang

Love this shoe jewelry/accessory ! Bullets dangling around my ankle, how dope. I'll be on the hunt for these, or maybe even turn it into a DIY, we'll see :]

Julian Louie x Aldo

Hey Hauties !!!!
Please pardon my absence, I've been so caught up with finishing my last semester at college strong. I'm still working on the great skills of prioritization & time management, but I'm getting there!

Anywho, glad to come back with some haute shoes -- the Aldo for Julian Louie collaboration. This is quite possibly one of the best things to ever happen to Aldo, these wedges are too fab! The exotic suede patchwork and tribal prints make these edgy shoes a must have for my closet. I've been waiting for their release since November, and finally these four patterns can be purchased for $125 in select stores in NY, Miami & California. The taupe Sobeslava can even be purchased online here.

What do you think? Haute Tamales ?
