Tees and Heels-Corey Wesley Urban FLRT


I was invited out to Showroom 77 on March 23, 2013, and as always, expected to see a good presentation. I was super impressed when I had a chance to really see what Urban FLRT was about. Urban FLRT is the latest project from BlackOutEndeavors LLC a conceptual development firm and apparel company based in Harlem, New York.

viewimage_storyCreative designer Corey Wesley is such a down to earth guy. I could hear the passion in his voice and knew it was definitely his time to shine. Corey has been in the press before, but its nothing like “freely living real and true.” Of course their is a flirty element to the the brand, but  more importantly it is a statement of art and liberation to whatever it is your are trying to attain in life. Urban FLRT is not just a piece of garment, it is a lifestyle.

Corey stood ultra cool in his sleek and stylish tee as he took the mic in admiration of his guest. The graphic were so intriguing, each shirt has its own story to carry; you can read the elements of music, culture, and fashion infused in the design of each tee. While the gentlemen looked really good in their tees, it was the ladies in heels that sold me! Who would have known a simple tee with a few graphics would be so trendsetting?

I am simply in love with the concept and designs of Urban FLRT. I mean, I’ve worn tees before, but it’s nothing like the confidence and culture that exudes when you are rocking an Urban FLRT tee.

I’ve seen it all, rocked with a blazer or without; heels or sneakers, an Urban FLRT tee can fit  any occasion. Oh and did I mention the quality….Wesley uses a unique treatment that infuse the dye into the shirt as the designs are printed! No cracks, no bleeding, no fading, what more can you ask for?

You can learn more about Urban FLRT at http://urbanflrt.com/ or stop by Showroom 77  to purchase your tee.

Sophisticated Lady

477004_10150749709356522_659167320_oBreath-taking, elegance, and just pure talent describes one of Philadelphia’s aspiring fashion designers.  Michael Thomas is truly blessed when it comes to understanding and conveying class and subtle seduction in designing  his woman’s wear line. It takes great patience and detail to deliver such quality work as some designs were worn by entertainment icons such as  Philadelphia’s radio host and entertainment news correspondent Kendra G, and Grammy Award-winning recording engineer and CEO of N.A.R.S record label Marcella Araica. Other public figures such as Rakia Reynolds, CEO of Skia Blue Media  and Ambassador of Philly 360 can be seen flaunting a Michael Thomas piece as well.

Thomas is currently enrolled in the Fashion Design program at the Art Institute of Philadelphia, where he is continuing his research and refining his craft in designing women’s apparel. In addition to that, he is absorbing the mentorship of one the world’s top fashion designers, Oscar De La Renta and his extraordinary team of designers. Michael Thomas is well on his way to penetrating the industry and reinventing fashion that will forever remain relevent to the current trends. What can I say? He is simply amazing, but I’ll let you see for yourself.

Shoeture by JPratt Footwear

1I think I’m in love………with JPratt…….no not the man, he’s married; the shoes. I mean when I first saw them, I nearly lost my breath; it’s definitely something special about what he adds to what some women declare trash. Jermaine Pratt had a unique foot fetish with worn down shoes and a keen sense of fashion when coming up with embellishment concepts that is unparallel to those I’ve encountered.

Some may say he’s over the top, but he’s right up my alley with a boldness that commands the attention of the fashion industry. I definitely can see Malaysia Pargo or Draya Michele of LA Basketball Wives in these shoes, so let’s push JPratt Footwear to the spotlight.

Make sure you follow JPratt footwear and keep up with his latest treasure!
