Expression Of Style

For as long as I can honestly remember, I've always been intrigued by fashion! I loved everything Bold, Avant-Garde, "Risque", Rock & Roll, Chic, & of course Designer! What can I say? I was exposed from an early age!
I'd always watch my mother so intricately while she dressed & applied her make up. It was a process so nonchalant but meticulously precise! I studied her & wanted to be just like her (go figure). My sister & I loved playing 'dress up" in all of her designer clothes (of course when she wasn't home haha!). So naturally when it came down to matters of my own style it was fitting for it to be " My Perogative", I wore what I wanted if it felt right.

I admired shopping more than anything, more than Barbies, more than Cabbage Patch Kids, even more than Chuck E. Cheese! Whenever we went shopping, I'd literally get lost in my own world. I'd be picking out all of the shoes/outfits that I thought were cute, & for some strange reason in my elementary mind it made sense & felt right! But Most of all, it Looked RIGHT!
 I thank her for always allowing me to be ME!

Rihanna's fashion is through the meters (her shades, matrix-like hoodie, shoe game) and there is plenty of panche from our boys Ye and Hov

Remember its not even what you wear, its HOW you wear it! 

Should I dare say that this song is our anthem? ;-)

Worth the Shoe-icide!!!

While some of us have the luxury of adding these to our very own closets, the rest of us have fun not only drooling over these BUT  using them as mere inspiration for the next time we are out for our retail therapy!

Urban Fresh Present: SANKOFA

Urban Fresh in collaboration with "The Randoms"  rented out a movie theatre for an  exclusive movie night  in honor of Black History Month.

We will be showcasing Sankofa, ...
... a very important  and controversial film about  the naked  truth of slavery, humanity, and freedom.   Haile Gerima, the director of the film,  invites us to travel back to a moment in our history that can be uncomfortable and deemed as irrelevant  for some of us but in the very essence of Sankofa, we have to know where our ancestors came from in order to move forward.
Date: February 25, 2011
2 Movie Time: 4p.m. and 8p.m.
Location: David Square 

Tickets will go on Sale on Monday, January 24th

Mark your calenders in the meantime for both the sale date and event date because tickets will be limited!

Film Description:
A self-absorbed Black American fashion model on a photo shoot in Africa is spiritually transported back to a plantation in the West Indies where she experiences first-hand the physical and psychic horrors of chattel slavery, and eventually the redemptive power of community and rebellion as she becomes a member of a freedom-seeking Maroon colony

Play Worth Seeing

We are proud to support the play, Neighbors, directed by Summer Lee Williams. Check out all the details below and make sure you get your ticket before the end of the show!

Here is the Synopsis:

Have you seen the new neighbors? Richard Patterson is not happy. The family of black actors that has moved in next door is rowdy, tacky, shameless, and uncouth. And they are not just invading his neighborhood—they’re infiltrating his family, his sanity, and his entirely post-racial lifestyle. This wildly theatrical, explosive play on race marks the major debut of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, member of NYC’s Public Theatre’s Emerging Writers Group.

NEIGHBORS includes explicit language and sexual content and is inappropriate for children.
