my favorite part of the summer is food! ralph's italian ices, fresh long island corn on the cob and fried chicken to eat on the beach watching the sunset over the atlantic ocean. sometimes though, cooking the chicken can cause quite an oily mess. since I don't have a car that I can convert the oil to run on, I thought this doo-dad was something helpful to keep in the kitchen.

I caught a showing of sex in the city over the weekend on HBO during which, carrie, effortlessly outfitted by the incomparable ms. patricia field wears a long single strand of pearls. over tees, over dresses over bikinis on the beach after big leaves her at the alter. I love the look and am looking for a great piece on eBay inspired by the incredible coco chanel for the right price to rock for summer.

once a while, a gem will be uncovered in the rubble of youtube that excites and entertains. today was that day for me, when I stumbled upon my boy, matt demar's video from 1991, "we can do this". he has a pony tail. how do YOU rock the c & c music factory look? lots of spandex onsies and knee-high boots. and oh yes, the pony tail.

summer lovin' can get the best of us. but when the "us" is fiance'd lovers katy perry and russell brand, a whole new set of hollywood rules applies. do you think this love can last the season? betty says this...
caftan tops are a great and breezy way to greet the summer. a pale printed yellow flow-y shirt that makes me feel so globally godess-like. yes, paired with a skinny white jean that crops. yes. and some great tribal flats. yes. and when you find a brand that sells all three for a pricetag that leaves money in your pocket for something special from the ice cream man. oh yes.

I love the look of white denim. especially when paired with gold embellished sandals in the summer. or nude high heels. too bad my ass looks like the lumpy old milk in the back of the fridge when I attempt to wear this white trend. touche tushy. seven does a fab pair that throws back to a day when the bunny hop was the thing. but if you too love the white pant but can't seem to pull it off, a good option is white linen pants for flow-y casual chic. white is right. now.

with every single brand on the frugalista bandwagon, there are so many offerings out there that are too cute and now, inexpensive to pass up. why, just today, I was taking a quick peek at the kmart on 8th street and came across this awesomely fun beach / weekend tote bag from joe boxer. with a bright blue color and sexy, stylish pattern like the signature DVF graphic, this adorable bag can be yours for $12.

I'm declaring this the summer of RED! I love how Red Ray-Bans, Red Havianas and glitter-y Red Urban Decay Lipstick make for spectacular pops of stylish color. Paired with stripe-y shirts and denim jeans, any of the aforementioned pieces will bring a fantastic look together.

me and my pollo, professional and genius organizer, nicolioio got down with the renegade craft fair in mccarren park this past weekend. nicole was on the very focused and year-long hunt for jewelry from lines vera meat and erica weiner.
she made out with both a fantastic home made two finger gold ring form the former and some sexy french name bracelets from the latter. plus, she even bought me an adorable hair bow made from men's ties for being such a good lil helper. although the renegade craft fair only comes around once a year, all goods and crafts can be found for sale on etsy.

happy memorial day everyone! I hope you had a bitchin' couple of days off in the soon to be summer sun. I was able to remember our soldiers (including my grandpops who both fought in world war II) in the patriotic city of philadelphia. I have never spent time there and boy, was it a treat! ten bucks on the chinatown bus from nyc and philly here we come! philly is lovely in architecture and art. no wonder the roots, jill scott, bilal and john legend have come out of there. and how can I forget rocky balboa!? that's my favortie all time flick! philly is a nice vibe-y urban flavor with a touch of classic american. I was especially interested in the summer style. with everyone out at the bbq or beach, I kept my eye on what trends started to show themselves. and nothing says american like short denim shorts. an easy get at forever 21 for under $20. score. and head accessories to keep the hair off your SPF'd face. think bows, netting, ears, anything that pulls that hair away and looks cute. match all that with some sandals and a simple tee and you'll be lovin' summer and looking sexy in no time.
