Mr. West popped the collar on his pink polo back in the day as a College Dropout, reigniting my favorite ‘Backpack Era’ of hip-hop, but as of late his gear looks like he took it ‘Through the Wire’..nah mean? He just got too avant garde for the lay person to relate. I guess he thinks so too now because word on the curb is that Ye is trying to bye-bye ALL images of him rocking this leather skirt/skort/pants thing from the Hurricane Sandy relief concert. This strangely comes a day or so after Lord Jamar from Brand Nubian basically called him weak sauce. Hmmmmm….methinks it’s not the skirt you need to be worried about right now boo. Just sayin’

Last night I was scanning the innawebs for a new winter coat when I stumbled across this atrocity. A puffer shrug? Who does this? Who wears this? Even the mottle™ (R Kelly) looks like an offended Dakota Fanning. The buyer needs flogged. Mommy, make it stop, it’s scaring me!!

Our Brewchie on the Scene, Kristy Jones (@KristySamone), was once again at all the hot spots during New York Fashion Week. Here’s her latest installment about the street style at the Spring 2013 shows:
I’m home recuperating from a fabulous seven days of watching shows at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. That time was filled with zero sleep, frantically catching trains to back-to-back shows, chugging coffee, energy bars, lots of hard smiling, changing from flats to heels then flats to heels… and I loved every second of it. Although the shows were absolutely fantastic, the real treat was the people-watching. It was especially cool to see what folks were wearing to the runway shows. It gave me clear idea of what trends to expect this fall and even next spring. Here’s a look at what was hot on the streets.
Thanks, Kristy! Be sure to check out Kristy’s blog, Fashion Femme Fatale

, fashion’s “elite” is taking a page from people of color, but the question remains are fashion editors taking a stab at minority communities under the guise of paying homage
? The latest infraction is Vogue Italia’s “Haute Mess” spread which shows models with too-long toenails and Skittles-colored hair… the VERY SAME types of images that WE
categorize as hot ass messes when we see the “real life” versions walking down the street. The same images we chuckle at when they pop up in our inboxes during prom season
. So, is it wrong for Vogue to take it a step further and “attempt” to make it fashionable (if that’s even possible)? So, what’s your call, Brewchies? Is this photo spread an homage or do you take offense to it?

Brewchie on the Scene Kristy Jones (@KristySamone) is back to give her take on the Vantan Tokyo show at Fashion Week in New York City!
One of my #NYFW highlights was the debut runway show of Vantan Tokyo, a cutting edge fashion capsule from Japan’s premiere international design school.
Years past these kids have been at Paris Fashion Week…aka…the pinnacle.
I didn’t know what to expect, but honey, if these young designers were showing at the Lincoln Center I knew #1: the designs would be hot and #2 their pockets were deep – LOL!
The show did not disappoint showing lines from Anki, Masato, Yuya and Cheryl. I became especially close with the latter.
I didn’t think anything could top the show, but I hadn’t gone to their cocktail party yet! At the Nexus floor room on the West side, I was able to chat it up with Yuya and Cheryl about their collection and more importantly, how to order.
Cheryl’s showed me the hottest little dress with faux fur (retails near $400 includes shipping from Japan:)
