In lieu of “President’s Day,” I figured I’d promote mine…
‘Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the Lord thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.’
Deuteronomy 17:15 KJV

With this weekend’s opening of Marvel’s Black Panther I am excited 😃 for my people’s jubilation for the awe inspiring, positive, visual representation of so called “black people” in a world that constantly feeds us a negative one. But at the same time we must be vigilant. Brothers and sisters… one’s STYLE should be a representation of one’s HERITAGE, TRADITIONS, & CULTURE and not merely an illustration of one’s fantasies.
“A man may be known by his look, and one that hath understanding by his countenance, when thou meetest him. A man’s attire, and excessive laughter, and gait, shew what he is.” Ecclesiasticus 19:29-30 KJV 1611

Focal points are the key to success.
Tried and true is best with trusty Blue… take it easy.
I absolutely LIKE the Transitional Seasons! Slight layering, Sleek Jackets….I could go on and on, but we don’t have much time so I’ll get to the point. You can take 3 simple pieces and be more than ready for anything the day throws at you. A light cardigan for the morning chill, T-Shirt for the mid-day heat,, and a sleek jacket for…well…isn’t it obvious? LoL 😉 “LIVE ABOVE IT!”
SHOES: Cole Haan Zerogrand Wingtips $300 | PANTS: Express Khaki Joggers $40 (Sale) | T-SHIRT: Haynes $12 Pack | CARDIGAN: Target by Merona Zip-Up Cardigan $25 | JACKET: Express (Minus the Leather) Quilted Moto Jacket $230
If the words “BEAST KING GOLION” don’t mean anything to you…then you have NO IDEA what this hat is all about. Trust me, these words are for TRUE Voltron fans only. Now as for the fit, hey man, keep it simple. It was a little cool out there that night and the event was outside. Yes, I’m speaking in the past tense, because this was last night. I told you I’ve been a bit out of it, what with the food poisoning and all, but anyway, a perfect night for a light denim, like this one. And my Chukkas kept me toes nice and toasty! The key is SIMPLICITY. Like all art you want a good Focal Point. My lid is the FP of this masterpiece. Always keep the objective, which is your anchor, in mind. It’s all about the Heroes this week! Oh and SIDE NOTE: When sporting a lot of denim, be sure to mismatch the top & bottom. So choose either a dark top & light bottom or vice versa. Or else risk looking like a JC Penney’s model from the 90s. LoL Alright, that’s it! “LIVE ABOVE IT!”
