AWD: IT'S A FRAUD - BOW TIE (so, sue me)

Up by 8, tennis at 9, a recoup at 10, and out again by 11.... Not enough hours in the day, but the life of a hustler is ongoing - sleep when you die. My histology professor and every other professor (yes, Histology - the study of tissues. Yes, I am the future 5% (black physician)), had to say something about my damn bow tie... Yes, bow ties go with jeans - Today.

Slim fit Stripped shirt
, TAKEL from Urban Outfitters. Gray cardigan vest, GAP. Jeans - Low Loose fit and Bow tie from American Eagle Outfitters. Paired with boat shoes. Books sold separately...

Style Tip:
You've seen it a while in editorials and on runways, but try loosing the socks and rolling up the legs of pants and jeans. Make it messy with jeans for a carefree rumpled look and make it more uniform with other pants.

Rihanna covers the Septemeber issue of Vogue Italia.


Kandi and Tasia (Fantasia)

Yes, Tasia your thong is showing in that leopard print catsuit ( a strippers onesie).... When you think of Atlanta old-guard black society, this doesn't come to mind. However, somehow this is the new class of Atlanta's young black elite. Young, famous, just a little hood, and mostly up and coming "somethings". That splash of street is almost everywhere in this town even in freaking Grayson, GA "Atlanta's best kept secret" - so they say. I wonder what it is now because it was a secret circa 1990 when I was growing up there... This video is hilarious though, nothing wrong with having a little bit of fun.

"Something bout the clouds and her mixed..."

"That's when
I saw her, OOOooohhh (Prince scream) , I saw her. She walked in through the outdoor (out door - echo)"

The girls this semester are looking quite lovely, and these freshmen ladies.... BEAT (if you don't know you bet ask somebody). Even though school is well underway and your financial aid is all wack (where is my scholarships and other grants FVSU, don't make me have to expose yall), Us men (RIVERMEN) have lots of eye candy to look at. Just a reminder (because some of these banjee ass negroes still haven't grasped this concept) be polite, polished, and an adult; a gentleman always gets the right lady - not these little girls sneaking it in the backdoor of Boyd hall, I see all yall... FINED!

I've payed the cost to be the boss, respect your authority...

My biggest pet peeve is people wearing their parents clothes. In particular, the men. Dressing up doesn't mean you have to look like your dad or your grandfather - yikes. Suiting up should come natural and should be age appropriate. When looking for pieces look for the right fits and proportions. Adding edge to classics is the perfect approach to piecing thing together - like this look.

Classic navy blue blazer by Brooks Brothers. Striped shirt, handmade repp stripe tie, and broken-in chinos by J Crew. Boat shoes by Louis Vuitton, fabric cuff links from Nieman Marcus

No belt needed. Switch it up and make it work. Take your cues from classic well dressed men and then own your own look.

Acronym because I'm on the go. First day of class, snoozed the alarm about 33 times before waking up completely at 8:15 for my 9 o'clock class that's on the edge of campus. Cooked this up for a day that looks like rain on the drop of a dime...

Navy blue polo in vintage wash Marc by Marc Jacobs, gray graphic t-shirt Obey, jeans are Seven for All Mankind, and shoes are Jack Purcell Converse. Accessorized with a vintage Rolex Day and Date, SKINNY belt from Urban Outfitters with grommets, vintage inspired corduroy knapsack by Marc by Marc Jacobs.

This day is just getting started and it's off to a great start.. I'm an optimist. It's dark, gloomy, and muggy outside which makes for a perfect bitchass-ed attitude day... Beware FVSU...

HAVE A WILDCAT DAY (Insider joke, should be easy to understand).


Thursday, August 13, 2009


The dawn of a new day brings a new beginning. Yesterday is dead and gone and now is - well, now. To categorize how I feel and to bring the viewers into my world, I decided to show what I'm wearing each day.

The day sets the tone for what you're wearing and you go from there. Today is a relaxed day. We all recovered from a soggy, muggy, and damp day yesterday. I put this together: Alife T from Standard (Peachtree St. ATL, GA), cargo shorts from Rugby by Ralph Lauren, and a pair of Nike Blazer from Wish (Little 5 Points ATL, GA). Today I was running errand, doing work around the office, and later on relaxing.


Life and TImes Vol.1 : Boyd Hall

So, the life of an RA is not as glamorous and lush as people might imagine. Especially staying in a traditional dorm with standard industrial strength tiles and off white cinder block wall. Don't forget the metal furniture with faux wood accents and a splash of orange.
I arrived here unsure of many things and sort of apprehensive. I was anxious of how things would work out. I anticipated the critters in my room and even lost some sleep. I can now lay all of that aside because I am making it work. It's not the life I'm comfortable with (wood floors, quartz counters, wolf range, and sub-zeros fridges), but it's a learning experience. This is the experience that I asked for - I accepted the job.
I'm making it work.
Brought some items to make it seem more at home. Fur blanket and pillow - check, Full length mirror - check, an artillery of designer clothes - check check... I tried to fang Sui my room. I feel a difference and it is certainly peaceful. This is most important in any place you live - dorm of apartment. Harmony is crucial when dealing with a demanding life.
Instead of chilling in the study, I now will be studying in my office - college student/ executive I'll scratch you into my schedule... No Corinthian leather chair, art collection, artifacts from my world travels - just basic. Starting from the ground up. This semester should be interesting - wait have I said that already... New mantra perhaps??? AEMON WEAVER

My new night time routine. The life of an RA is interesting and it's going to be interesting to see how I balance school, social life, and running a blog - among other projects under construction. I keep running into people asking me how my summer was - blank stare (read the blog). Yeah, I blow them off with the intern and the shadowing deal, but whatever...

The hopes are high for the upcoming school
year and the year ahead. Great things in the works and a shocking move in the make - hush shhh.... I switching up my style, attitude, and overall persona. So many people don't know my personality on campus. I play it cool and keep it laid back - and people take advantage... That's not me - never was.

My night time routine now includes waking up to the door alarm going off because some freshman are sneaking out - knowing they have a curfew. The nerve of some of the boys, honestly. A new term has entered my vocabulary - rachet. I hate slang, it has no place in academia. However, there is only one word to describe the actions of the little kids.

These boy-men are called "River Men", the name is still growing on me because it could mean lots of things. Here at Fort Valley State University, we are embarking on a new initiative to ensure that these incoming students become quality adults and staples in society. I'm excited that I'm apart of this new direction and it's equally exciting this is the largest incoming class in the school's history. Dr. Said Sewell is at the forefront of this movement. This guy is awesome and I admire him. Morehouse Man, enough said.

My infatuation with this school is sickening and I am determined to make it there, it makes me excited the fact that I too can become one of the men who carry on that legacy. It's an honor to be at an HBCU period. There is no doubt in my mind that I will be one...
