Old School Friday: Neo-Soul

Posted by on Aug 29, 2008 in Videos | 10 comments

You’ve heard of blue-eyed soul, now I introduce to you blue-eyed neo-soul. My pick for the week is Remy Shand. What makes him so special is not that he’s white, but the fact that he plays every instrument in this song, and on his album…

[Take A Message by Remy Shand]

My second choice is non other than Erykah Badu, there is no way I can play Neo-soul and not mentioned my fellow Dallas-ite Ms. Badu. This song is my favorite song by Erykah, I hate the video, but I love the words to the songs. This is the song that encourages me and gets me through whenever I’m at a crossroad… Here are some of the lyrics:

Time to save the world; Where in the world is all the time
So many things I still don’t know; So many times I’ve changed my mind
Guess I was born to make mistakes; But I ain’t scared to take the weight
So when I stumble off the path; I know my heart will guide me back

[Didn't Cha Know by Erykah Badu]

Brandy & Solange’s fierce bag look

Posted by on Aug 28, 2008 in CC's Fashion Post | 5 comments

This past week, R&B singer Brandy went on a shopping trip at Intermix in New York City. I couldn’t help but notice that Louis Vuitton leopard monogram tote Brandy had because it’s the very one Solange was seen with outside the MTV Times Square Studios last May.

Great minds think alike, huh? Ironically so, both singers are busy with their music careers. Solange just released her sophomore disc, “Sol-Angel & The Hadley Street Dreams” while Brandy filmed her comeback music video in L.A.

Both divas have style as you can tell from their fashion-forward videos. Check out Brandy’s Sitting Up In My Room” for all those quick costume changes or Solange’s latest “Sandcastle Disco” for something different.

For the record the bag is from Louis Vuitton Fall 2006 ready to wear collection. So which R&B starlet pulled off that luxe LV bag – Brandy or Solange?

Ciara’s “SATC” Inspiration

Posted by on Aug 26, 2008 in Celebrity News | 3 comments

When I saw Ciara in this floor-length colorful maxi dress, I immediately thought of the look Cynthia Nixon wore in “Sex & The City: The Movie.” Cynthia has on a T-Bags dress…as does Ciara. Eva Longoria Parker and Halle Berry are also fans of T-Bags.

Apparently the dress is sold-out online but I found 2 some low-cost alternatives.

1. T-Bags green flashback twist dress, $155.20.
2.T-Bags printed maxi dress, $110

For those interested in what Christina Milian wore to the launch party of T-Mobile Sidekick LX Tony Hawk edition, it’s this French Connection “bex” embellished shift dress! Christian’s look comes in white, black and lime green. (Re: £130.00)

Is That Really Keyshia Cole? Respect My Vote

Posted by on Aug 23, 2008 in Celebrity Photos, Celebrity Sightings | 19 comments

I didn’t not recognize her, I kept asking myself is that really Keyshia Cole. I always thought she was a pretty girl, but her beauty certainly shines through with the dark hair, instead red or blond. I bet Jeezy probably having second thoughts, eh! Keyshia Cole is rocking the “Respect My Vote” tee, part of a T.I. initiative to encourage young blacks to vote…
