As an Israelite I don’t observe or celebrate Labor Day, but also, as an Israelite, my people built this country… along with every major empire on this earth, but I digress. So in the spirit of the sacrifices of my ancestors, this one’s for you!
“And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assuredness forever.” – Isaiah 32:17
S H A L A W A M
8 ¶ The voice of my beloued! behold! hee commeth leaping vpon the mountaines, skipping vpon the hils.
9 My beloued is like a Roe, or a yong Hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh foorth at the windowe, shewing himselfe through the lattesse.
10 My beloued spake, and said vnto me, Rise vp, my Loue, my faire one, and come away.
11 For loe, the winter is past, the raine is ouer, and gone.
12 The flowers appeare on the earth, the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.
13 The fig tree putteth foorth her greene figs, and the vines with the tender grape giue a good smell. Arise, my loue, my faire one, and come away.
Song of Solomon | S H A L A W A M

Oh rainy DAY…oh rainy daaaaay, OH rainy DAAY! Oh rainy DAAAAAAY! LoL It’s raining cats & dogs out there so one must be prepared to take on Aquaman himself if necessary! So I’m busting out my favorite cape–I mean coat for days such as this!
You’re only as good as your foundation. Especially on slippery days like today. My waterproof, Lunargrand boots are as good as it gets. I always tuck my pants cuffs in when it’s raining. $278
We start with the base layer, which is one of my green V-Neck sweaters that I purchase during GAP‘s Labor Day sale! $10
Rockin’ my GAP/GQ, En Noir Moto jeans again with a black, zip-up Merona cardigan that I purchased from Target. Now I’m nice and toasty. Moto Jeans $80 Cardigan $25
And finally we add my “Cape!” Or my dad’s army jacket, but WHATEVER! Details right!? LoL You can’t get this bad boy anywhere, but the service. So glad my dad was my size and had a taste for tailoring too! Water just turns and goes the other way when it sees this bad boy! And you wouldn’t believe how deep the pockets are! HECK, they’re ready made for weapons and the coat itself is meant for any harsh terrain so I think I can take on a little water. This is some real HERO S#%T! LoL VINTAGE! $FREE.99
Leave me…there is much that I must ponder upon. #Fin.
It’s the day after Labor Day and for most of us it’s back to Labor. Nothing says work better than Camaflouge! OK, okay…let’s just get the G.I. Joe jokes out the way before we get started. LoL Okay now, The day after Labor Day also means you should see some nice Style. After all, it is a day of sales. Both garments are just a few of the Steals I found yesterday!
First of all, check out ya’ boy’s foot work! The Camo Lunargrand Wingtips are perfect for this look! No need to elaborate. If you don’t know how I feel about these by now then… $250
Then we have to respect this city. And I’ll do that with these City Shorts from Banana Republic! Great for casual or business. Throw on a Button Up and you’re ready to close the deal. Throw on a T-shirt and you’re ready for a relaxing getaway. It’s all about “VERSATILITY!” Remember, baggy is out. Let your shorts stop above the knee. And you want them tailored not Daisy. To give you an idea, I generally wear a 32 inch waist, but these are a 30. $10!
Also got this gem from BR! I don’t own any short sleeve collar shirts, but this one has opened my eyes! LoL Trust me I’ll be copping some more. The key to wearing camouflage is not to over do it. When you have a piece this strong you have to let it speak for itself. Don’t mess it up by trying to over match it. Notice how I chose the dominant brown instead of green for the shirt. It lessons the impact and makes it Stylish instead of Childish. It’s an art form so be patient 😉 $12!
Alright, sorry for the late post, but got busy and couldn’t help it. So now you know, “AND KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE!” #JPSKILLZStyleTip
