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 ;)!
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!
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.
The well-received “Joe V Show”, deriving much of his positive influence movement, Joe makes no mistake about his attraction to arts and culture while revealing an intelligent and memorable charisma through his talk show. 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.
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.
