212 featuring Lazy Jay – Azealia Banks

Apparently, this song has been out for a few months but it’s relatively unknown in the US, as evident by the lack of airplay. It’s not really surprising considering the “Explicit” rating on iTunes and lyric content with copious amounts of the word “CUNT” thrown in.

I love the cockiness of the song and the sampling of Lazy Jay’s Float My Boat which basically carries the whole beat and melody of the song. The lyrics are raunchy, confrontational and unapologetic in delivery. The video is super-fresh and the cute white (Jewish?) boy is a nice added touch. And I love the bridge, adding a bit of softness into an upbeat and fast-paced song.

Hey, I can be the answer
I’m ready to dance when the amp up
And when I hit that dip, get your camera
You could see I been that bitch since the Pamper
And that I am that young sis, the beacon
The bitch who wants to compete and
I could freak a ‘fit, that pump with the peep and
You know what your bitch become when her weave in
I just wanna sip that punch with your peeps and
Sit in that lunch if you’re treatin’
Kick it with ya bitch who come from Parisian
She know where I get mine from, end of season
Now she wanna lick my plum in the evening
And fit that ton-tongue d-deep in
I guess that cunt getting eaten (5x)

I was in the 212
On the uptown A, nigga you know what’s up or don’t you?
Word to who made ya
I’m a rude bitch, nigga, what are you made up of?
I’m-a eat ya food up, boo
I could bust your 8, I’m-a do one too, fuck ya gon’ do?
I want you to make bucks, I’m a look-right nigga, bet ya do want to fuck…
Fuck him like ya do want to cum
You’re gay to get discovered in my two-one-deuce
Cock-a-licking in the water by the blue bayou
Caught the warm goo in your doo-rag too, son?
Nigga you’re a Kool-Aid dude
Plus your bitch might lick it, wonder who let you come to one-two
With ya doo-doo crew son… fuck are you into, huh?
Niggas better oooh-run-run
You could get shot, homie, if ya do want to
Put ya guns up, tell your crew don’t front
I’m a hoodlum nigga, you know you were too once
Bitch I’m ’bout to blew up too
I’m the one today, I’m the new shit, boo, young Rapunzel
Who are you, bitch, new lunch?
I’m-a ruin you, cunt (4x)

Ayo (ayo), I heard you’re riding with the same tall, tall tale
Telling them you made some (made some)
Saying you’re grinding but you ain’t going nowhere
Why you procrastinate girl? (-nate girl)
You got a lot, but you just waste all yourself
They’ll forget your name soon (name soon)
And won’t nobody be to blame but yourself, yeah

What you gon’ do when I appear?
W-when-when I premiere?
Bitch, the end of your lives are near
This shit been mine, mine (x2)

[Verse 3 – Azealia Banks]
Bitch, I’m in the 212
With the fifth cocked nigga, its the two-one-zoo
Fuck you gon’ do, when your goon sprayed up?
Bet his bitch won’t get him, betcha you won’t do much
See, even if you do want to bust
Your bitch’ll get you cut and touch you crew up too, Pop
You’re playing with your butter like your boo won’t chew cock
The gun, too — where you do eat poon, hon?
I’m fucking with you, cutie-q
What’s your dick like homie, what are you into, what’s the run, dude?
Where do you wake up? Tell your bitch keep hating, I’m the new one too, huh?
See, I remember you when you were
The young new face, but you do like to slumber, don’t you?
Now your boo up too, hon
I’m-a ruin you cunt

What you gon’ do when I appear?
W-when-when I premiere?
Bitch, the end of your lives are near
This shit been mine, mine (x2)

Givenchy Pre-Fall 2012 Lookbook

It’s no secret that I’m crazy for Givenchy (who isn’t?) and this collection is just another reason why Givenchy is becoming the most-watched house out there by men and women alike.

It features the same design elements of previous collections like the shark-tooth lanyards from the women’s line, marine-inspired elements, tons of leather, cut-outs, men’s earrings, the ever-present sandals, street-wear, the infamous rottweiler, stars, and the color green. The blue is also a nice touch, a color which I haven’t seen at Givenchy before.

I love that they used Simone Nobili. The lookbook also features Willy Cartier but I thought he looked a bit awkward in the looks. While Simone was perfectly suited to the urban backdrop and masculine styling.

I know it’s been covered by everyone and their mother but this is my take on it.

Here are my favorites:

I’ll either get the sweater or the t-shirt version, depending on price and availability.

I love the cut-outs in this sweater.

This army jacket is MAJOR. I love the pure-white fur hood.

Okay, one Givenchy post done. Two more to go.

Good job, Riccardo.

SHORTS vs. PANTS

Shorts vs. Pants

That’s the internal struggle that’s been plaguing me for the past week.

I’ve been agonizing over it because I have to make drawstring shorts or pants for school.

I’ve been dying over the Givenchy look since the collection came out. I never wear shorts or tights but it seems not so hard to pull off. The drawstring leather pants from CELINE are to die for. And the drawstring look is perfect for what I have to do in class. The pants are closer to what I have to make. So I’m leaning towards making pants.

I wish I could make both but it’s Industrial Sewing so I have no time to make both. We have a whole checklist of things to do in class. And I have to buy fabric pronto as I need it in 2 days.

Faux Leather vs. Black Satin

That’s my other dilemma. Never worked with leather before and mistakes are bound to happen. Satin is too shiny but the matte reverse is perfect since I can’t find an alternative. And the faux leather is like $15 per yard. Way too expensive for a pair of shorts made in school.

So many decisions, so little time.

I’ll post what I end up making:)

Happy Birthday KATE!

It’s Kate Moss’s Birthday y’all.

Today she turns 38!

I usually don’t give a birthday shout-out to people I don’t personally know but this is a special case.

 Kate Moss has been a FASHION ICON for little girls and gay boys for decades.

Her penchant for wearing sky-high Louboutin Pigalle stilettos, vintage Dior, LUXE fur coats, all with a careless l deshabille grace have made her a legend among the fashion-crazy crowd.

Here’s a few of favorites among my endless collection of Kate Moss photos…

That’s all.

Later, gators:)

Christine Centenera in GIVENCHY Fall 2011

One of the few style icons that I adore is Christine Centenera.

Don’t know much about her other than that she’s an editor at Harper’s Bazaar Australia.

And she obviously has killer style.

Here she is at Spring 2012 London Fashion Week…

She’s wearing a Givenchy blouse and Alexander McQueen boots.

I obviously love the outfit above. It’s so detail-oriented. The crazy and immediately noticable Givenchy top. The beautiful white Burberry Prorsum coat from the Fall 2011 collection. And the tough but elegant blue suede Alexander McQueen boots. All beautiful alone by themselves but great as one look.

And that’s why she’s a style editor.

Here’s how she wore the coat with another pair of Alexander McQueen heels also the the Fall 2011 collections. Gorgeous!

Go to my tumblr blog at FASHION MARTYRDOM to see more.

I just posted a ton of photos of her.

Japanese BBQ|Girl with the Dragon Tattoo|ROLEX & CHANEL

So I had a busy day today with my shopping/movie buddy Hannah.

First we had some BBQ at GYU-KAKU Kapiolani.

Stupid me ALMOST LOST my iPHONE for the SECOND time. First time, I lost my first black iPhone 4 in Vans Waikele, along with my FENDI case:( I’m over it.

So I bought a new one.

Thanks to the nice waiters for recovering it for me from the bathroom.

GOD KNOWS why I took it with me! I should just tape it to my face!

Drama averted. Whew!

Then we went to watch The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo 2011.

It was sooooooooo goood. I loved how much more high-budget this version was than the last. For $100 MILLION dollars, it better be. It made me believe that it was real.

The rape scene was horrendous as usual but the revenge scene was much more satisfying than the Swedish version.

I just didn’t like the re-writing of the ending. Don’t wanna spoil it but it’s not the same as the book or the Swedish version.

HARRIET-FUCKING-VANGER!

I don’t care what anyone says, Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist is so much HOTTER. The Swedish actor was plain ugly. Sorry, but I’m really not.

Anyone who saw the Swedish Mikael Blomkvist NUDE saw what I mean. EWwwww.

I LOVED it when Lisbeth transformed from a super punk to uber rich bitch to steal $3 Billion from Wennerstrom. FIERCE!!!!!

But the most touching scene in the movie was when Lisbeth, aka Rooney Mara, sees Mikael on Christmas back with Erika Berger. TEAR. So heartbreaking.

GO WATCH IT PEOPLE!!!!! I want to see the SECOND and THIRD US versions as well.

And then we went shopping….

Excuse my hairy arm:/

It’s a ROLEX Oyster Perpetual Datejust.

The bezel is White Gold and the circumference of the face is the biggest they have.

$8500 US.

I couldn’t take it off.

I needed a l’il gift for my besty cuz I’m the worst gift giver. It’s the timing that I have to work on. This is for Xmas, kinda.

Hope my friend likes the color, it’s called Vendetta.

And that was my day out:)

Night peeps.
