Gabriel Held, The Instagram Account You Need to be Following 


I stumbled across this account maybe a month ago on the popular, my bad, explore page on ig and I have been OBSESSED ever since. 


Vogue has coined Gabriel Held as, “Instagram’s foremost fashion historian” and I couldn’t agree more! When you divulge into Held’s insta account you learn that he is a stylist and vintage dealer who’s pieces have made there way to some pretty bad ass name, i.e. Rihanna in the “Wild Thought’s” Video!!!! 

Speaking of Rihanna, you have to check out Gabriel’s baritone rendition of “Wild Thoughts”! This baritone diva also covers Kandi’s “Don’t Think I’m Not”, (which is how I hit follow) not to mention a weekly video of him performing Lil Kim. (Sidebar: I was Lil Kim for Halloween in the 4th grade, my mom didn’t know who she was! Oh, and my sister and I got grounded for going to see her at the “No Way Out Tour” in ’97) 
As a lover of 80’s, 90’s and hip hop style Gabriel Held’s page evokes emotion for me and takes me to a certain place in my life where I was super carefree watching MTV, BET (when they both played music videos and now I’m telling my age) and dreaming of being in Vogue! 


So fashion lovers get in, follow @gabriel_held_vintage and enjoy the ride! I guarantee you will get your life on a daily!!! We all need it in these tumultuous times!

Ye’ Turns 40


Today we celebrate Kanye West 40th birthday and whats a better way to honor the former Louis Vuitton Don than with some of his greatest moments in Fashion. Just like we all have a favorite Ye’ album, we all have a favorite Ye’ fashion era. I honestly prefer anything pre 2012 (shade), though the fashion on Yeezus was impressive. I’m not here for the homeless/bodysuit monochromatic look where I have to pay 600 bucks for a sweatshirt that I can get at Walmart. 
So here’s to you Kanye, we hope you give us 40 more years of style.

Jeff Koons x Louis Vuitton

Images of the Jeff Koons x Louis Vuitton were released today and two nights ago celebs partied it up at The Louvre in Paris to celebrate the collection. According to Vogue, everyone toasted the night away and danced to Rae Sremmurd, Lil’ Yachty (eye roll) and whats a party without Drake (double eye roll*). I can only imagine Michelle Williams (Dawson’s Creek not Destiny’s Child) yelling “I got fake people showing fake love to me..” 

This is the first series to drop in their collaboration and this go round is famous paintings and the painters name on the exterior. Pieces start at $585 and are as much as $4000!
