Mr. Michael Hurley, Co-Owner at UNKNWN
The Atlanta brand, FRESH.i.AM creates handmade customized snapback style trucker hats with a unique appeal. Using simple abbreviations and images, the brand creates products that have a pop-art twist. With great graphic design and overall a dope simple product, 2DOPEBITCHES co-signs FRESH.i.AM.
I first became familiar with the brand from seeing Theophilus London rock their hats almost in uniform like fashion. He also collaborated with them to release a special “LVRS” edition hat. I’ve had the honor to meet the FRESH.i.AM guys at UNKNWN and they are really humble, created, and motivated indivuals.Im excited to see how Miami responds to the collaboration and so excited to see how the FRESH.i.AM brand grows! Also excited to see what 2DOPEBITCHES and the guys can cook up together!
Keep on the look out for a April/May release date on the hat which will be a limited release product. Once its gone, its gone for good!
Yours truly Rockin’ the hat

I’m broke. I’m pleasantly and hopelessly broke. But that doesn’t mean that I can’t window shop through cyber space! I know you feel me on this one, it’s just so hard to not get lost the internet searching and dreaming about the things you’d love to buy. I love to look for coupons codes too and put them into the shopping cart of a website just to see how much of a deal I would get if I actually paid for it – but then I close the window because I can’t spend that kind of money. Quite sad really. I also search eBay endlessly for used versions of the things I so long for. Literally I’d buy a used pair of Chuck Taylor’s. Yeah, I’m THAT desperate.
Anyways, here’s some of the freshest and dopest gear in my opinion this week in my window shopping adventures. If you have the bread, Id say you cop some of these unique and signature items – perfect for any wardrobe that needs a little spike.
The EYE AM NOT ALONE ring by AMBUSH DESIGN, combines unique and stand-out jewelery together with high quality materials. Hailing from TOKYO this piece will definitely make a statement. For $230 – it better not fall off my finger either.
Available via RSVP Gallery
Gold colored pyramid double ring. Enamel eye design on face.
Dimensions: 2” L x 1” W x 1” H
Made in Japan
Jeffrey Campbell – The Cosmic Lita in Astral Print
Jeffrey Campbell. The Lita. Enough said. Wait not really, I am in love with Jeffrey Campbell and droll for any of his shoe designs. I don’t care what some high-scale snobby bitch says if he mimics styles from higher end brands, he creates something high-scale yet polished and unique with a pretty good price point. I just can’t afford the price point but hey I know its more reasonable than any fancy brands! The height and appealing silhouette of the Lita is eye-catching and screams DIVA! I love it !
Availble Via Karmaloop $160
Shiny cosmic patterned lace up boot with hidden platform and wooden heel; 5.5″ heel with 2″ platform.
By Jeffrey Campbell
Kill me now. I’ve been eyeing these since they came out in September. These are just normal tanks , BUT THEY HAVE A BILLIONAIRE GIRLS CLUB LOGO ON THEM! Do you not see the rarity in this? Okay I may be over reacting but its dope. It’s a girl version of the BBC brand and I love it. I just don’t love that its 40$ and on top of that shipping is another 10$ – so $50 for this damn tank!? Kill me now.
Available via BBC/Ice Cream online store

The dope ladies over at Married to the Mob have a list of accomplished collaborations with such companies like Lacoste , Collete Paris , Nike , Reebok , Kangol , KAWS , Krink , and more ! Now with the May 1st release of their new Married to the Mob x Baby G watch release it gives us another reason to follow this dope ass brand.
I’ve been fucking with MTTM since high school days , I’ve got tees going back to 2006 ! I am def a fan and love what they do over at MTTM. The watch is beautiful and simple , no need for crazy logo and colors , just a nice plain violet Baby G with simple “MTTM” written on the band.
Head over HERE to cop the watch , available in limited qualities , for $99 bucks ! Get it while you still can!
Oh and check out the video below for a cool video of the video promoting the collabo featuring the Married to the Mob’s owner’s sister super MOB’ed out braking shit !
Incredible , simply marvelous. The new LANVIN for H&M trailer features the upcoming pieces for the special collection. The pieces . TO DIE FOR . Available in select stores on November 20th . Here’s a preview of some of the pieces. Ranging in prices with the most being about 300$ which is a deal thinking that the LANVIN line itself is in the thousands.
Watch the video after the jump and see special pieces+prices from the collection.
So , I have been known to be quite the sneakerhead in my prime days. Another thing I am is a female streetwear lover. Combining the two – I was surprised to see Miss Vashtie Kola (stylist,designer,artist of the mind, became well-known for being Pharrells ex-girl and directing the Lupe,Kanye,Pharrell video for US Placers) – has been chosen to be the first female to design a JORDAN II SNEAKER.
Her brand Violette and personailty are represented on the shoe along with her signature Violet hue. I kinda relate to Miss Vashite because as hard as I try , I can’t be too much of a girly girl. Shes a tomboy but still bring in the femininity of streetwear. (How much times am I going to say ‘Streetwear’ LOL) - of course !
Anyways , she’s a regular blogger I follow and kind of don’t want to admit admire.
This collab is dope – and If i can convince myself to make room in my closet and sell some sneakers I might just cop these .
Shoe Gallery anyone?
Check the pictures . Check out her blog and site at www.vashite.com
