We attended the Jay-Z concert in Miami last week and it was all kinds of incredible. I never really feel like I have the right to say that I am a huge rap/hip hop fan, as I feel like a huge motherfuckin’ poser when uttering the words, but after attending this show and singing along to every lyric I’ve had an existential epiphany. I Claude-Alicia, am not a wankster, and am aware that I am not of the African American race, but will continue to wear fitted caps, snapbacks, and oversized tees, wave my palm up and down, stand on my seat, and sing along no matter how much whiter it makes me look. To summarize the rest of our evening in a sentence, we had a bit too much to drink pre-during-and post show, and well….I now have lyrics tattooed under my feet…you live and learn bra…live and learn.

Choosing something to wear to ring in the new year is always my favourite event to shop for. I tend to go for the obvious opportunity to do glitter and bold, but in more recent years I have really fucking enjoyed going hunting. What I mean by that is I pick one of my favourite looks from the past year’s shows, and red carpets, dig it up, and get that shit on my body by the time the ball drops. Last year it was the ever so popular open back Tom Ford zipper dress, but this year I fell deeply in love with a controversial twerker’s fishnet Marc Jacob’s number. Sure the met ball and a new year’s eve pool party are not exactly similar events when it comes to dress code, but I “couldn’t stop” as I “adored” it…get it, get it? We attended the Fontaine BLEAU pool party which ironically enough Miley dropped out of, but Pharrell made sure we didn’t notice. 2014 has been a little chaotic thus far but heres to hoping for happier news, better choices (not including booze influenced tattoos) and warmer weather as the year progresses. Hope all of you had a wonderful 2013 and that this new year brings nothing but health and happiness. I am so grateful for all your support with my CC and thank you for continuing to visit everyday. Love you all…

Happy 2014 all! I don’t know about you but for me Kenzo has always been synonymous with my childhood. Wearing my hot pink floral leggings at the age of 7, never did I think one day my favorite brand would be worn by hip hop moguls. When Humberto Leon and Carol Lim took over creatively in 2012, pieces that felt part of a pre-tween renaissance started introducing themselves to my closet and have been steadily checking-in to the Chateau Claude Walk-In ever since. Clouds and tigers and eyes, oh my! Every animal and symbol superimposed with their famous logo has felt dope and fresh, and has become my go-to to add some funk to an outfit. Mixing their evil eye new era cap with a floral overall dress from Rihanna’s river island collection was the perfect way to make a childhood throwback current, comfortable, and simply fucking playful.
