Music Flashback: Nelly’s “Country Grammar” was released on This Day in 2000!

As if I couldn’t make myself feel any older, The Nelly Takeover began on this day when he dropped “Country Grammar” in 2000! Be it that I am from good ol’ St. Louis, I remember everyone and their mama saying they were in Nelly’s videos or that they knew Nelly! I did know a “Nellie” but it was my big sister!
Wait, I do know “Big Nelly,” Cornell Haynes Sr., he is my cousin Renell’s best friend! I digress.
This album would start a trend of guys wearing bandaids under their eye while rocking Air Force 1’s and Nelly’s Vokal line. Great times!
Did ya’ll know that “Country Grammar” went DIAMOND?! No matter how you try to spin Nelly’s situation, the numbers don’t lie and Nelly had the rap game on lock and went on to have two more platinum selling albums after “Country Grammar”. 
Here’s to you Nelly and thank you for introducing the world to St. Louis!

Versace Fall 2018 Campaign.

The Versace fall 2018 ad campaign shot by Bruce Weber echoed the mood and awareness of the words “Equality,” “Love” and “Power” that appeared on the designer’s catwalk.

Words that ring especially timely, true and focused in the wake of the tragic events that continuously make headlines. Against a blurry concrete gray backdrop Weber lensed models Gigi Hadid, Mica Arganaraz, Taylor Hill and Vittoria Ceretti wearing a crop of the season’s looks, from tailored black coats and sexy dresses to checkered draped dresses, their tresses tinted in green, orange and gray. A gaggle of hot male models round- out the photoshoot.

As the Versace house pointed out on Instagram, the campaign is “a powerful manifesto of unity and hope.”

In other Versace news, it looks like the Versace-Riccardo Tisci match has hit a standby after months of negotiation. According to industry insiders, it won’t happen after all.

The New-York Blackstone Group fund owns a 20 percent stake in Versace since 2014.

STL CRAVINGS: WHEN THE FLIGHT LANDS AT LAMBERT

When it comes to St. Louis foods what are some things that first come to mind?  Maybe Imo’s Pizza, Chinese food (St. Paul sandwich if you want to be exact), White Castles, Gooey Butter Cake, and Vess soda.  This list could go on and on.  I have spent the majority of my life in St. Louis so the food holds a special place in my heart, and my craving gets real as soon the plane touches down at Lambert.  I decided to share with you all some of my must have foods outside the typically norms for most St. Louisans when I visit home.

 

GOODY GOODY 

So I think it is time for a moment of honesty with you all because we are fam!  I schedule early flights not so I can spend more time with family, but so I can catch Goody Goody before they close at 2pm.  This restaurant has been around since 1948 and it’s the first stop I make once getting to St. Louis.  Each time I go I always see a familiar face, and the consistency of the food has NEVER changed.

Carla Fendi Dies At Age 79

The fashion industry has lost a fashion icon, Carla Fendi, one of the 5 fendi sisters, passed away late Monday night after a long battle with an unknown illness.

Fendi started as a leather good shop in 1925 and Carla recalls living above her parents shop and running around playing with the handbags and shreds of leather.

She told WWD, “Accessories were our first toys.”

Once the sisters took over in the 1960’s, Fendi expanded to ready to wear, home, children’s, and shoes. Karl Lagerfeld was brought in as Creative Director and the company saw a significant boost in revenue after he introduced furs into the line.

Carla Fendi was also responsible for pushing the brand to where it is today. The Fendi logo is one of the top recognized luxury brands worldwide.
In her later years, Carla became a advocate for art and culture in Rome. Her foundation restored the city’s Trevi Fountain, where Fendi hosted one of its runway shows.
Carla, your impact on the fashion world will never be forgotten. Thank you for your creativity and passion.

Brunchin’ In Queens: ORO

I have been living in New York City since 2014, and this past weekend I brunched in Queens for the first time.  Maybe it is because I have been living in Manhattan and this island has me spoiled rotten with endless brunch options.  Regardless, when given the chance to check out Queens with some good friends that are also foodies I jumped at the opportunity.

This past Sunday I checked out Oro, which is Spanish for GOLD.  Sounding classy already, huh? Before going to Oro I stalked their IG page, drooled over their food, and watched their promo video several times.  It was to the point my friend had to asked me if I was watching the video again and passing judgement at the same time.  Maybe it was the beautiful people having a good time, or my fav song playing in the background, or the positive energy this spot gave off.  From the video  I JUST knew I needed to experience it!
