When Carmelo Anthony posted his watch collection on Instagram my mouth dropped! Aside from his job as a basketball superstar who knew he was a watch connoisseur?! I sure didn’t. So much that he’s the co-founder and daily contributor to Haute Time- a luxury watch magazine. Here are 3 of my favorites from his Watch of The Day feature:
Vintage 1945 Tourbillon With Three Gold Bridges by Girard-Perregaux
Pocket Watch Tourbillon GMT Ceramica by Panerai
Gerald Genta Octo Chronographe Quadri-Retro
For the dapper gents looking to add a fly timepiece to their collection I encourage you to check out Chrono24 an international watch market to buy and sell new or pre-owned watches from the top luxury watch brands like: Audemars Piguet, Franck Muller, Hublot, Tag Heuer, Omega and Rolex, (I will own a watch from The Rolex DateJust Collection one day!) If you want to learn more about luxury watches and keep up with Carmelo’s watches of the day there’s an app for that! Download the Haute Time app available on iPhone , iPad and Android.
Last night some D.C. fashion lovers came out to sell, swap, and shop for clothing and accessories that make heads turn at SnobSwap, held at D.C.’s new tech hub, 1776. Of course with the horrible traffic, coupled with rain I was more than fashionably late, but I did manage to snap a few flicks.
Check out the rest of my pics and recap from the fashion event over at The Fab Empire.

Yesterday, R&B singer Ciara posted some flicks of her new hair cut on Instagram. Her fierce, new look immediately made me want to cut and color my hair! I absolutely love it! So much that I had to re-post to my account. A few friends said this would be a good hairstyle for me to try. I’m reconsidering if I want to continue to grow my hair out.
What do you think about her new hair cut?
So remember when I went to the Broccoli City Fest and described the style scene as early 90′s grunge mixed with natural hair wearing divas, and young urban professionals? Michelle over at Eat, Style, Play captured the street style from the festival perfectly!

I’ve been trying to convince people that DC has real style!
Last night one of my favorite celebrity gossip blogs TheYBF.com hosted an exclusive screening for one of this season’s biggest films-The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio. (swoons) TheYBF editor, Natasha Eubanks welcomed her DC readers and alluded to the awesome, yet highly criticized soundtrack produced by Jay-Z featuring artist like Beyonce, Andre 3000, Florence and the Machine, and Emeli Sande. When the trailer for the film was released I knew I wanted to see it but I had no idea how visually stimulating the 3D movie would be.
I would love to attend a party exactly like ones portrayed in the film! Gatsby’s parties are the definition of “turnt up”! Leo and Tobey offered plenty of comedic relief to the love story with a twist. While the soundtrack wasn’t perfect, I did enjoy it and the styling was impeccable! So glamourous and over the top!

After getting a first look at the film we also walked away with a Great Gatsby tank.
Make sure you check out the movie in theatres this Friday, May 10th!
This past weekend I indulged in a little Sunday fun at the Broccoli City Festival- DC’s first urban Earth Day celebration.
For once I went to an event to just have fun! I ditched my Nikon and once I got inside the DC Fairgrounds I was kicking myself. I should have known that this event would bring out all of the Tumblr ready kids just waiting to have their DC style snapped. The attendees were extremely diverse. Since I didn’t capture any pics think early 90s grunge mixed with natural hair wearing divas, and young urban professionals. I had a good time! Check out the pics I did snap on my phone.

There were plenty of food trucks and of course I had to get some cupcakes from one of my DC faves Very Good Cupcakes
The Seventh District + Downtown’s Sweetheart Va$htie
I wasn’t sure if I’d actually get a chance to meet Vashtie but I did! She was so nice! She embraced me with a hug and we chatted for all of 2.5 seconds. I didn’t want to be a creep and ask but she smelled so good! I wonder what perfume she wears??? I should have asked.
Check out her photo diary from her weekend in DC!
The BC Fest was held from 12-8pm and in true CP time, headliner Big K.R.I.T didn’t show up until the latter half of the event. Around 7pm I was slightly annoyed and ready to leave, but considering I’ve never seen him perform I decided to wait a little longer. After the DJ claimed he was 5 minutes away (we all know what that means) I was overit.com. I ended up staying for his opening song and left quickly after. Apparently I should have stayed because I heard he rocked the crowd.
All the “cool kids” were at the festival! For DC’s first urban Earth Day celebration I think the BC Fest was a total success! Fun times!
