Missed the DJ4C Game Night?! Here’s A Quick Recap….

Y4ShymFfCLQgBy70nDpVYh07x60qwqJeQJPalkkN42kDJ For A Cure’s second event went down last Thursday with PUMA and KRINK NYC. The event took place in No. 8’s edgy, yet cozy game room. The event was hosted by DJ KISS and featured two inspirational speeches from DJ4C’s very own Quiana Parks and cancer survivor Lindsey Lewis.

DJ Charles Browne started out the night DJing getting the crowd in the party mood and ready to kick ass at some games. DJ Austin Millz and Quiana Parks soon followed him with sets of their own. DJ Rick Kid even stopped by for a surprise visit finishing out the night with his set.

Throughout the night the Leukemia & Lymphoma society collected donations from the guests, and ended up raising $591!

It was a successful night for the DJ4C team! Thanks to everyone who came to support and to everyone who donated. Continue to follow the DJ4C movement; the next event will be going down July 14th!

FASHION: JUICY COUTURE finally DRIES UP (in the U.S., that is)

juicy4

The brand behind one of the most iconic looks in fashion history is throwing in the bejeweled towel.

Juicy Couture has closed it’s massive opulently-constructed doors in the U.S., making that about 120 brick-and-mortar stores set to shut down by the end of this month. It’s international stores will remain open, but for how long is unclear. Word has it that Kohl’s will carry the line beginning this Fall season. Couture and Kohl’s, two words Juicy fanatics never thought they would hear, until now.

The brand’s website is still up and running, but with a few snags (or should I say a full unraveling?)…no SALE section, negative on the store locator, and there’s absolutely no mention of the now well-known deterioration of the label; if you didn’t know any better, those generic statements of “JUICY’S NEW LOOK AND NEW ARRIVALS, COMING SOON!” on the website wouldn’t have you suspect anything…until you actually click on an item.

2014-06-25 13.08.14

you can “notify me” when you stop lying.

Mysteriously, (insert sarcasm here) nothing seems to be in stock. On their Facebook page, there seems to be a divide between die hard Juicy fanatics and others who heard the latest news and are asking the question “who still buys this overpriced s*%#?” And as FB Likers question the future of their beloved brand, the standard generic statements (again!) continue to ensue:

2014-06-25 15.08.36

Just in case you missed it, they are in the process of creating an exciting new Juicy retail program. Kids, can you say AUTOMATED?

The brand is synonymous with publicly perpetrating wealth without doing much work, thanks to early reality show celebutantes that donned their namesake’s tracksuit like it was their uniform or second skin…and for a while, it seemed like it was exactly that:

juicy-couture-tracksuits-closing-shop

The undisputed triumvirate: Queens of Juicy.

So does this mean the end of “VIVA LA JUICY” forever? Or is this — like many fashion trends — going in the corner to die, only to resurrect and reinvent itself in a few years? I wouldn’t throw away those terrycloth threads just yet; everyone’s a sucker for a little nostalgia. Speaking of…

remember J.Lo and JaRule (the throwback duo!) and the feel-good song of summer 2001? This video single-handedly made me want to wear 5 skinny gold chains at a time, find out what made her skin so incredibly dewy without looking shiny (im still trying to master that one), and of course get my hands on a pink Juicy set. Or at least a modest look-alike.

I tend to be pretty fond of black and white (but not red all over, ha!) but looking at these images in saturated hues made me smile. And honestly, is there such thing as “too much color”?

CREATIVE: ADIDAS WANTS YOUR IG PICS ON THEIR KICKS

adidas_zxflux

Sneakerheads who pride themselves on wearing only the most exclusive. Self-proclaimed hypebeasts who jump on the latest trend, no matter what. Someone who doesn’t necessarily follow fads, but wants to preserve a treasured moment in an unconventional way. Thanks to Adidas’ latest groundbreaking news, everyone’s wishes will be granted.

adidas_zxflux5 adidas_zxflux2 adidas_zxflux3

Starting in August, Adidas will launch their photoprint app for their popular ZX Flux sneaker on iPhone and Android. This will allow you to take your Instagram photos and express yourself to the world in an innovative way. So forget simple “colorways” as the only means of kicks customization. That sloppy burger at that out-of-state diner you loved so much that you just HAD to take a picture of? That unbelievable sunset you captured before you slipped on a hill? The priceless snapshot of you tossing your cap in the air at your graduation? Yes, even your multiple selfies can all be showcased on your feet for the REAL world to see. This might actually take care of that “they’re wearing the same exact sneakers as me” annoying fashion faux-pas. It might also make you a Sherlock Holmes… don’t be surprised if you look down at someone’s feet and discover that you finally found your Instagram stalker!

LIFESTYLE: A Jypsy-of-All-Trades // Jeyfree Brings Her Style + Trip-Hop to BK

jeyfree1

If you were to ask the question, “Who is Jana “Jeyfree” Freeman”, you would undoubtedly get different responses. An eclectic soul; a bright light with a nomadic spirit; a stylish bohemian with artisan creativity; a make-up artist who just so happens to create melodic sounds of a trippy nature. She is all of these descriptions and more.

jeyfree3 jeyfree4 jeyfree9 jeyfree8 jeyfree7 jeyfree6

She’s no stranger to showcasing her multi-faceted creativity. Known for her skills with a brush — faces, blank canvases, acrylic/wire finger accessories, you name it — she’s recently honed her talents into expressing herself musically. Whether she’s one of the main acts that travels to Houston, ATL or NOLA on The Freak Show Tour, or she’s appearing in local venues in one of the 5 Boroughs, she always leaves her mark. And the occasional trail of Unicorn/Mermaid glitter.

You weren’t there getting dirt in your sandals, confetti in your hair, or fanning away the massive clouds of smoke. (some even from *Le Gasp* smoke machines!) But who cares? That doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy the festivities and live the boho-chic life vicariously through pictures. (Plus it’s alot cheaper…i dunno about YOU, but I need my coins!)
