Chanel x Monster headphones

Chanel has teamed up with Monster to create an awesomely fabulous pair of headphones. The collaboration headphones were seen on Karl Lagerfeld and Swizz beats at the Chanel Autumn Winter 2014 Runway show. They have a quilted leather headband and are adorned with Chanel’s signature  interlocking C’s. The cherry on the cake is the matching carry case in matelassé finish.

Single Ladies: Dressed To Kill

It may not be the best show on TV but Single Ladies has a slot on my calendar if for nothing else than wardrobe inspiration. While their acting can be wishy washy and sometimes the plot goes funny, it’s very rare that there is ever a fashion mishap on Single Ladies. The clothes are fresh, fun, sometimes edgy, usually a little crazy but always inspiring. Heres a quick recap on this season, episode 5’s outfits.

Watch out! A recap on the rest of the episodes coming soon!!

The men aren't half bad either! ;)  Keisha: Jumper by Zara Woman / Sandals by Manolo Blahnik / Clutch by Zara.

Ankara for the win!! Demestiks by Reuben Reuel 2014

It’s that time of the year again where you see a lot of international designers incorporating Ankara into their runway designs. Reuben Reuel however, has centered his entire collection around it. The 2014 Demestiks collection is likely to have all the Afrocentric, Solange listening fashionista’s rocking this look this summer!

DesignSponge_Reuben_1

Reuel says he gets his inspiration for dress making from what he saw in church on Sundays while growing up in Virginia Beach, VA. I suspect his love for these Dutch Wax (Ankara) prints stems from ‘other’ heritage. I’m definitely going to be doing some research into him, I like his style!

First Diddy, then Kanye, Vin Diesel and A$AP Rocky…. Men in Skirts

Back in 2010 Diddy got into the Scottish spirit and rocked a Kilt during a concert in Glasgow. While the skirt wearing star created a lot of buzz, it was nothing compared to Kanye wests leather skirt he wore in 2012. Since then, it’s apparently become the norm for male celebrities to rock out in skirts and dresses. Stars like Vin Diesel, A$AP Rocky, Omar Epps, Coolio and Snoop Dogg (or Lion – depending on when you started listening to his music, lol) have become quite accustomed to the breezy feeling of wearing a skirt!

Is this unconventional style becoming standard or are they just having a little fun?

Personally I don’t see anything wrong with throwing a kilt on every now and then for a performance or red carpet event. Men do it all the time in Scotland right? – Apparently so did Dictator Idi Amin and I don’t think he felt any less of a man!

While most of these men are making a fashion statement, there are some who have taken the dress/skirt fad too far. A rapper, Young Thug (somehow his name makes this a little less surprising. He clearly doesn’t have good judgment, lol) was spotted wearing what was thought to be a woman’s shirt – but was in fact a little girls dress!

He’s generally a little bit bizarre – I think it’s safe to say this fashion trend will not be catching on!

Beyonce’s Easter Fit: Casual Cool

I know I’m late but Happy Belated Easter ya’ll!!!

Easter weekend called for a lot of fun outfits but I was extremely surprised by how laid back Beyonce’s outfit was. That being said, I LOVE IT! Just like everyone else, she’s human. Looks like she opted for a quiet Sunday with family & friends in a cool Top Shop shirt & shorts set. All in all I’m feeling Bey’s casual cool look and it’s definitely one I’m going to be rocking this summer.

FLIP BURGER BOUTIQUES: Burgers with a little something extra

We’ve found a new spot to get burgers with a twist this spring! Flip Burger Boutiques use alternative ingredients to make their absolutely scrumptious but light burgers. There are 3 locations in Atlanta.

To start we had pulled beef empanadas with avocado mayo which was like a party in my mouth! All the ingredients were very fresh and seasoned to perfection!

Meanwhile move over Mr. Crabs and Spongebob because Flips House Crabby Patties are everything and then some! They use fresh king crab and their secret house seasoning piled high with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions and avocado mayo.

The sliders sampler gave you the perfect taste of their most popular burgers: Beef with caramelized mushrooms and onions, Buffalo Chicken & Beef with Truffle oils and fresh vegetables.

I didn’t actually try the Turkey burger but my sister gave it a thumbs up and she’s a picky eater!

20140411-182119.jpg

To pull it all together I had this amazing Smoking White Peach Sangria:

20140411-182353.jpg

I’m no food critic but i would recommend Flip Burger to anyone. If nothing else, the presentation is a lot of fun, the food is different, and the atmosphere is pretty laid back. It’s very Miami meets Atlanta – a combination guaranteed to please!

After much anticipation, FLIP Poncey-Highland’s huge Rooftop Patio is now open!!! Come out and enjoy this beautiful weather with us while it lasts. We have plenty of room for large parties as well as a lounge area with sofas and chairs if you just want to hang out and relax while checking out the view.

It’s Finally Here!!!!!!!

Spring is finally here and we are totally loving it! The first thing on our agenda was to get some color into our wardrobes! We started off with some colored jeans from PZI. They are super stretchy and don’t get uncomfortable in the heat! pzi springThis seasons Tiffany Distressed Jean (photographed in the center) is flying off the rack! We are taking pre orders at Olivia’s Trunk (contact oliviastrunkng@gmail.com for more info) so make sure you act quickly!!!

The next stop on our agenda was to step up our accessories game. There’s nothing better than a pair of statement earrings or a necklace! They are a quick and easy fix for a simple outfit. Throw on a pair of jeans, a white T-shirt, a statement necklace and you are good to go!

Here are some of our favorites for the Spring:
