Look at these pros.
Look at these clothes.
Look at this dough.
Look at this go, looking evil.
Look at me then look at these hoes.
These bitches ain't fucking with me. Killa!

Killa! Killa, killa!
Killa! Killa, killa!

My money on it we now gon' knock on it to set it low.
Bar don't need to come down let it ride they'll go before we know.
Mind will lead they can tell I know. I know me they can tell me no.
If you got heart let it beat then while they're sinking don't let your thing go.

Tear it up. I'm so damn gold.
Tear it up. I'm so damn gold.
Tear it up. I'm so damn gold.
Tear it up. I'm so damn gold.

holly effing new camera!
holly effing hair cut!
there ain't nothing bound to get you snap happy more than a new toy and blunt ends!
the camera is purely for work purposes (of course), but i couldn't help but give it a little trial run today. 
the hair cut was severely over-due to the point where once cut off, anyone could have honestly mistaken it for sea-weed on the hairdressers floor. I actually feel lighter, and feel it has improved the sharpness of my head turns !

On a vibe note, I spend the last month in Sydney having some serious dance-off's to M.I.A and Santigold. It more than re-kindled my love for them in my heart....it gave me a kind of nasty/bad-ass style influence out of nowhere.
Here I was wearing magenta structured suit vests and Lover lace dresses, when BOOM!>>> 
Camo, hard-wear and grunge hit me hardcore. 
Don't get me wrong, the whole army/military/any sort of 'service' attire is always a staple in my closet (I actually often get people asking me if I am off to a dress-up party, or how perfect my outfit would be for halloween)....so when people report it as a 'trend' it confuses me terribly. 
But camo print...camo is a tricky one. 
I like to compare it's life-span in the spotlight to the quickness of colours such as fluro green...
They are out even more quickly than they are in.
I remember once I was totally head over heels for the idea of a fluro green 1 piece cossie with "stop acid rain" printed on the front of it. Let's just say by the time I designed and handed it over for development, I was questioning my abilities.
So in a round-a-bout way, what I am trying to say is: camo is in right NOW but will probably not be in next week, so quickly grab it from the back of your wardrobe and rock it like you mean it.
Ksubi has an abundance of it in stores now, so if you burnt your camo collection from 2002 (or ended up using it as rags), I recommend investing in their range.

p.s if it is already out by the time I publish this post I would not be surprised, so if you want to skip it altogether, there will be no hard feelings here! (....or 'hard feelings there'?! here or there, that's always the question)
p.p.s off the topic I read something terrible today. Someone quoted "just because it is vintage, doesn't make it cool". What a lamo. Whoever said this probably wears Arnette sunglasses and the high-heeled version of Crocs. (gasp!)
