Rapper’s Delight With Le Happy

During the late ’80s, rap music began taking over the scene and hip hop influences reigned supreme. The style was all about baseball caps, scarf-printed bomber jackets, baggy pants, Adidas track suits, pops of neon and heavy gold jewelry.

2001: A Niki Takesh Odyssey

2001 will forever be my favorite year. Not only was it the best year in fashion, movies, tv, and music, but something about Y2K continues to intrigue and inspire me.

Getting Tanked with Jazzi McG

Don’t ask me how and when this happened, but I woke up one morning and spring was here with summer fast-approaching. Crazy, right? Now that I’m peeling back some layers and pants are borderline optional (um, within reason), I’ve completely submitted to the laid back California archetype: sunroof open, KDAY blasting (L.A.’s classic hip-hop radio station),
