FASHION: What Will I Wear to “Baby Ima Star”?!!

Baby Ima Star

With Thanksgiving around the corner, I am slowly transitioning from my fall clothes into your comfy winter sweaters and boots. And with that, now I am thinking about what to wear to the “Baby Ima Star”  party I’m DJing at on Thanksgiving Eve: dress or pants? Boots or heels? Go casual or formal? Ugh.  I will be spinning along side of DJ M.O.S. and DJ Kiss with guest DJ’s DJ D-Nice and DJ Juss.

I spin at the “Baby Ima Star” party every week, but this week is special. A lot of my friends and family are coming from out of town for the holiday. I really want to look my best! What should I wear JUNQUIs! Help ME! Hit me up on my Instagram (@quianaparks)  and let me know what your pick is!

Also Come Party with Us! Here is the invite! Hope to see you there ;)!

FASHION JUNQUI: The Burgundy Binge

FASHION JUNQUI: The Burgundy Binge
Perhaps you’ve heard of a little thing called Burgundy. We are big fans of burgundy when it comes to wine for decades years, so it’s only natural that the hue should make the jump to our wardrobes. The dark, sultry shade has been taking the streets (and the racks!) by storm, and we are so on board.This season brings burgundy pieces in all shapes and sizes — from a cozy sweaters to crushed velvet pants. And, we’ve gone ahead and picked the best of the best, so you can update your closet with nothing more than a few clicks. Note: This post is best enjoyed with an actual glass of Burgundy.



FASHION JUNQUI: THE TRY IT TUESDAY:V is for…Vava Voom!

red/junqui
 We are entering my favorite season of the whole year…Fall!!!  This “Try it Tuesday” we are trying out two of fall’s hottest trends the Coated Denim in a deep, rust-red scarlet, Venetian Red.  With a wet, waxy finish, coated denim is a slick way to get the “leather” look without sacrificing any vegan values — or your wallet. And — don’t let the texture fool you…they’re surprisingly stretchy! Good Luck!

FASHION JUNQUI: TRY IT TUESDAY: Notorious Attitude…

blue

Any fan of hip-hop music from the ’90s (or today) knows and appreciated the late great Christopher Wallace.

Also known as the Notorious B.I.G., his music will be loved for years to come. Unfortunately he was taken from us on this day 15 years ago and his fans, old and new, miss him terribly. So much so, that his style in both hip-hop and fashion seem to still live on. So since we are trying something different today…I figured lets try a little Sankofa and go back and get it. Biggie had and has such a huge influence on our culture, and our wardrobes. If there is one thing that we all remember Big for, it was his love for luxury streetwear and IDGAF attitude. Who could forget his Coogi sweaters, Versace shades and silk shirts?

Now I’m not rocking a freaking Coogi sweater right now, its summer…but as far as the Notorious…IDGAF sense of style I’m all for it. Today instead of washing my hair…I’ll be rocking a turban to fix me up. Also I’m feeling a bit gangsta, so I’ll be rocking a Nina on my chest driving with my seat back, banging Life after Death on the speakers. Doing it like BIGGIE would!


FASHION JUNQUI: THE TRY IT TUESDAY: Poison White Jeans…HOT!

FASHION JUNQUI: THE TRY IT TUESDAY: Poison White Jeans...HOT!
TRY IT TUESDAY: Do you have the perfect pair of white jeans in your closet but you fear veering into ’90s pop star territory, so you leave them in the closet?
C’mon every woman knows how alluring and magical the poison of white jeans are: devastating sexy, sophisticated yet casual, and flattering on just about any body shape…almost. What more could a girl want?
Try this out…A beautifully cut tank and a fashion-forward pair of pumps (purple my favorite color!) will liven up a slim pair of jeans. Also check one my favorite bags of all time the Rocco bag by Alexander Wang…many copied but he’s the originator.
For you Music JUNQUIs, this week listen to Poison’s best album, Open Up and Say…Ahh!.  In the late 80s Poison had the looks, wrote catchy tunes and went on to sell millions of records; they really could do no wrong. As they have always been one of my favorite bands I am glad to say that they still record and tour to this day with the original line-up intact. Open Up And Say…Ahh! should be in every MUSIC JUNQUI’s iTunes library.

FASHION JUNQUI: THE TRY IT TUESDAY: In-Jean-ious!! Oh so ILL!

FASHION JUNQUI: THE TRY IT TUESDAY: Denim Jumpsuit! Oh so ILL!
Teaching an old dog new tricks may be hard to do, but reinventing an old fabric in fresh ways sure doesn’t seem so difficult. This summer, the fashion gods have bestowed upon us all manners of denim done differently, these fabrics actually move and are soft! (betcha didn’t know that denim could do that, did you?).  Check out this  acid denim jumpsuit by Pixie Market that doesn’t scream 7th grade, paired with some “nifty thrifty” finds from around the way .
Music: It would only be right to pair a denim, a fashion classic, with an album like Illmatic. What makes “Illmatic” so unique, so timeless, is how is concise and simple it is, just like denim. The album consists of only ten tracks, with no skits, no wasted time, and no mainstream-sounding beats. Every track is great, but “Life’s A Bitch,” “It Ain’t Hard To Tell,” and “N.Y. State of Mind” standout to me as all-time classics.

LIFESTYLE JUNQUI: JOE V. "THE ESSENTIALS"

 Joe V recently stopped by theJUNQUI office spilling the contents of his pockets for us. We found a Madewell Delfonics pen along with his Moleskine, an all black Star Trek watch,and white Dre Beats. Of course he was wearing one of his awesome vintage button down shirts with a pair of classic Chuck Taylors. A modest collection indeed, this will probably not be the last time you see Joe V grace our pages.

Joe helps the people of our generation to voice their opinions on a stage where given a chance to expand and exposure.  You can follow Joe V on Twitter and watch his latest espisode, The Joe V Show, here.


FASHION JUNQUI: SUMMER BLUES FOR THE FELLAS…

c500x466-1

Navy? Nah. Not the usual school boy blue that seems to pop-up every spring and summer as a“new” trend. There is a new breed of blue tailoring hitting stores now makes standard navy-blue suits and blazers look downright maudlin. We’re talking all kinds of blue here, from the deep ocean blue, powder blues, to the electric blues.

There is something about the color blue that looks great on every guy and there are plenty of cool choices for summer. If you’re into that causal rugged bad boy look, head to toe denim is your answer. A great way to add swag up your denim look is by mixing in a standout print for a stylish twist. The classic dark blue blazer is a menswear staple that every guy should own. Find the cut that’s right for you and try adding your own spin on it with a colorful pocket square. For the guy who’d rather stand out than blend in with the crowd, a blue plaid suit is definitely the way to go. From tailored and dapper to comfy and casual, there’s truly enough blues for everyone.

FASHION JUNQUI: THE TRY IT TUESDAY: A HAUTE DAY
Summer is in full swing, and after this past Haute Memorial Day weekend, I’m dreaming of Denim Dress + Printed Bag + Sandals. There are some outfit combinations that always work, but if you’re trying to add up something that’s a little more complicated with a bigger payoff, the equation could take a little more finesse to balance. Let’s try this summer killer fashion factor, the denim dress.
