I must admit, this post was inspired by the seminal street styles of Manhattan, my dude (booty). My man, Scott Schuman, is a genius as all people who dress right know.

The ladies on his blog in their fits are always schwing and the guys possibly attract a lot of gay mens out there with ease. So triggered by the thought of capturing sartorialist in Philly and finding a model jawn that shared similar interest in the finest of linens…I went out and caught some flicks that ultimately came out like tags. Center City is as classy as tucked in shirts:

note…Schuman just came out with a book recaping all his top shelf shit from over the years and also, I remember thinking the beauty on the cover was sexy, not pretty, but sexy:

So the annual Odunde festival was the other day in Philly. The ensuing emptiness felt from scenester filled spots; culture fraught with stereotypes, supported by advertisers and cattle consumers; and just simply how much the previous attended Odunde festivals were dug, all pushed me to go. Bought some incense for cool out time, vibed in the drum circle, and got lifted above a care in the world :

odunde 1

odunde2

odunde 3

odunde4

btw, her, omg!!!

odunde 5

she got lifted too:

odunde 7

And the styles were naturally dope. None of that contrived shit, where you buy a look regularly seen on the scene and rock with no added flavors, obviously:

odunde 8

Life imitates art far more than art imitates life.

Which I’m sure has much to do with M.I.A receiving the venerable accolade of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People:

But just an afterthought of a villain, that will hopefully materialize into plenty of duckets along with world domination…Create something that peoples will want to mirror!

Anyways, painter Joe Holbrook represents the art imitating life side and I can most definitely dig his perspective, talent, blahblahblah too. Its like art for the peoples such as myself that could care a fuck less about the intrinsic beauty of boobies:joe holbrook looking good

All the while catching summertime breezes to:

note…the fly walt whitman piece by Lola New York and fuck a porsche, I’ll take that up there.

Fuck being a leader…I mean we’re all planets, and shit, I’m forever forgetting that I even created a twitter page for 5th + Prospect( it would’ve been a smart move to link the 5th and Prospect twitter page back there…think strategically young start-ups).

So the goal as a storefront is to not just be a style guidethough our looks will be on point like cute chicks confidently sauntering in rain boots on a wet daybut to hopefully motivate some to delve in the experiences that inspire the fashion. So as far as this blog goes, I can only hope that I don’t sell out to the idea of posting fits everyday for rich peoples. Specifically the ones that buy up all the realistic sizes before the 1st and the 15th come around. Anyways:

The true mark of beauty there, is that Dana by day, Rude Girl by night, is spinning vinyl like CDs and Mp3’s are only for dudes in nut tight jeans…suckers.
