I’m now excited about life. Sonia Rykiel for H&M hits the H&M on F Street on Saturday. Here are a few pics of the window display snapped by the folks over at The President Wears Prada.
(I was compelled to check out the blog simply because I love the name.)
All. The. Pretty. Colors! I may have to incorporate some brightness into my wardrobe this spring…
Plus, it’s all relatively affordable. The stuff pictured above falls into the $25-$80 price range.
More from Rykiel’s work with H&M…

By now, I’m sure that everybody and their mama has seen Wale’s video for “Pretty Girls,” but I feel like it must be recognized. It debuted on 106th and Park last night, and although most of the DMV was ecstatic that go-go is finally being played on airwaves that stretch past the Potomac.
Go ahead and press play.
Sorry, ya’ll but I’m not really feeling this video. I’d just built it up in my head so much. It involved Wale doing that whole, corny walking-down-the-street-for-no-reason-then-spot-love-of-life thing.
I was sadly disappointed. Still love the …
Snowpocalypse in DC has given me time to thoroughly check out all of the brands I’ve been meaning to focus on, and here’s one of my new faves.
Franky Bananas is a brand out of Orange County, California. They focus on t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats and hoodies.
Here’s a few of my favorite pieces, so far. Trust and believe, you’ll be hearing more about them from me.

Last week I had the pleasure of traveling out to Frederickburg, VA to interview the guys of Agio Life, a developing lifestyle brand out of northern Virginia. OK, well, the journey wasn’t a pleasure…I’ve become way too acquainted with the intricacies of riding the Virginia Railway Express, a very Amtrak-like experience that a lot of VA residents take everyday. Couldn’t. Be. Me.
But my interview with Craig Gross, Tyler Moore and Jason Prince of Agio Life was well worth the trip. After deciding to start their brand just three years ago, …
Last night, DC rappers, including Wale and Phil Ade performed at benefit concert in Howard University’s Cramton Auditorium to raise money to send to Haiti. Didn’t get a chance to go to the concert, but I heard great things about it. And by the looks of this video, all of the stories were true…
Looks like I missed quite a party…
They charged $10 per ticket, and judging by the wall-to-wall insanity in that room, they raised quite a bit of cash to help in the relief effort.
Remember those copper, Nike Air Foamposite One’s that DC-native, Wale, posted twitpics of a while back? According to Sneaker Files, there’s now an actual release date.
They’re set to come out on February 13th, 2010. Which means that not only will men all over DC rejoice (ya’ll love foamposite like I love pistachios—with a lust that cannot be explained), but will undoubtedly result in a few domestic disputes between DC sneakerheads and their girlfriends.
Ex. “What you mean, Rashad? You ain’t buy me nothin for Valentine’s Day because you spent all your …
Every DC males favorite brand is celebrating its 30th anniversary this spring. This preview gives a taste of all of the commemorative gear Stussy will be releasing to mark three decades of flyness. So far, it’s a lot of graphic tees, denim and hats. Check back for more previews as the year goes on.
If you haven’t heard of Words Beats & Life, correct that immediately.
Words Beats & Life is an incredibly cool, non-profit organization that enriches the children of the DMV through hip-hop. It exposes the kids to everything from French hip-hop to graffiti to dance, all while researching and studying the culture and the music behind their work.
Basically, it’s a hip-hop version of the Boys & Girls Club, with a research-heavy–yet interesting—twist.
The other day, I sat down with Words Beats & Life’s Ashton Wingate to learn more about the work they do, and I …

I’ve called DC my part-time home for about a a year and a half now, and in that time, I’ve gotten lost stranded outside of a club, had a snowball fight on a football field, voted in the most historic presidential election since Washington was making decisions, and bought my first pair of boots.
It’s been eventful. And that doesn’t look like it’s gonna change any time soon. Just this weekend, my friends and I took a trek through Northeast in search of my friends’ little brother’s hotel. Oh, and it was …
Yesterday, my friend and I (hey, Kemdi!) took a walk around DC. And when I say “around DC,” I mean we pretty much walked from Adams Morgan to the White House. No joke. My feet still aren’t speaking to me.
Anyway, it was a really pretty day, and I just invested in a new camera to better illuminate your lives with my creativity–don’t look at me like that, you know you love me–I snapped a few pictures while I was out. People were staring at us like we were the weirdest …
