womens-platform-pumps-high-heel-chunky-heel-shoes-7da3I recall two years ago while noshing with Darlando Eanon.. on the interwebs that “this platform thing was going to get out of hand”..

Fashion Tweekers…. Sky Ferreira and her boo ARRESTED ..

Welp..  another skinny ass model down.. HHAHAHAHA.Singer they say and fashion model Sky Ferreira (21) and her dude fashion model and indie band frontman Zachary Smith(28)  were arrested in New York on Friday . This shit is funny to me.. if you are mad.. then scratch ya ass til ya get glad.. Don’t trip she’s white her ass was probably out of lock up and back on the runway before she came down and your broke ass got up to go to work.. .. She is so chic.. 0_0

The couple were pulled over on the way to Mr Smith’s getaway home in the Catskills after making ‘several vehicle and traffic infractions,’ according to the Saugerties Police Department.  It was after police inspected the vehicle that they discovered 28-year-old Mr Smith, who was reportedly driving an unregistered Ford pickup truck with stolen plates without insurance or a license, had a ‘plastic bag containing 42 decks of heroin’, while Miss Ferreira ‘was found in possession of ecstasy and resisted arrest,’ said police.

This will just add to their appeal as if they were some type of righteous political prisoners.. You motherfuckers had ex and heroin.. COME ON SON.. Just as suspected the two were released and reunited so they could lament over the “injustices of the system”.. I swear.. white folk never seem to know how to ride dirty. ..hahah..I got 42 Stacks of that bad shit.. soooooo.. let me drive some faulty as truck, erratically,  with no insurance, stolen license plates, and we outchea as dirty as the bottom of a hot hoes foot on Western.. . This bitch had the gumption to PHYSICALLY SQUAB with the arresting officers.. LMBAO.. Now you know had that been a sista we would be having to raise funds and call Al Sharpton .. LOL..  Zachary ran to Twitter to defend him and his drugstore cowgirl.. ‘What you’re reading is a police blotter, not the outcome of a court case. These cops wanted to f*** us, and they did. Sky did nothing wrong.’  


Hold on while I fall out .. you fucked yourselves.. the two of you had just finished walking in clandestine shows, Sky for Marc Jacobs and Zachary for Yves Saint Laurent.. and the pressure just made them have to do THE EXTRA.. HAHAHAH..Ya’ll should have smoked a joint, or took a bong rip .. LOL.. I have always felt that Sky looked like she should have a permanent room at The Taj Mahal ( New Jack City).  This bitch looks straight out of Christian F , scars and itchy looking skin and all.. On the runway she is not even that dope.. yet these are the bitches THEY PREFER to just one or two Nubian models.. BUT I DIGRESS.. that’s a whole other can of Yams.. anyhoo.. check out her work, and the two of you .. BETTER CALL SAUL.. HAHAHAHAHA..

ZeZe look out boo!!!!!

The Greatest….. Happy BornDay Sir.. Muhammad Ali

I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’ 
Muhammad Ali 






Bringing the wedge into 2013..

isabel marant street style sneakersWell it all started a few years back.. when those WHO COULD rushed out to grab the hidden wedge classics offered by Isabel Marant...ON THE STREET | Isabel Marant these shoes could be seen on the well heeled feet of everyone from Gwen Stefani to Beyonce‘   ( Love on Top video)… They are quite the find.. and  IZZY’S (Isabel Marants) are not cheap.

These joints start at about $650 per pair.   We knew here at Bamboobanga that something this simple would SURELY be duplicated.. and BAM.. in steps Nike, Puma, Giuseppe Zanotti, and EVERYBODY with a wedge sneaker at varied price points..  I feared that we would leave this shoe in 2012 but alas it is very much alive and still kicking and I believe they are  brilliant..  This sneaker has the same impact that the Manolo Blahnik “TIMS” did several years back.  A masculine shoe was recrafted for our delicate B-girl feet .. hahaha .. and ladies from the runways to the ghettos are jumping onboard.

NIKE has even created a re working for the CLASSIC DUNK .. with the hidden wedge heel.. EXCELLENT..

You can find the Nike joints priced anywhere between 120.00 and 150.00


Nike and Puma version after the JUMP!!  Continue reading

Air Yeezy 2… The Shoes… It’s gotta be the shoes!!

Damnit .. word on the streets is that they have been released in Australia???  Take it over to to find out where the hell you can get them right now !!!! If that’s possible.. I know most of you had your eyes glued to Ye’s feet during the Watch The Throne tour.. Niggaz are going to be NEONED out on some TRON SHIT this summer LOL..  I believe they will price at about 139.00 to 150.00 .. GOOD LUCK HUNTING OUT THERE !!

Footwear… the essentials for 2012

Steve Madden ankle booties

Steve Madden ankle booties (see more lace up boots

Atacoma's from 09

Booties are still what’s up in 2012. You are lucky if still have 09’s wedge lace ups from Acne Atacoma.. those are still bangin even though they are old.. My favorite were the black and metal joints.. the Steve Madden knockoffs were awesome too..

Jessica Buurman offers a wonderful wine lace- up the LADEE going for

Jessica Buurman $199.00

$199.00 a pop, which considering is not as expensive as some of these joints.  New Years has passed but lace up booties and shoes are not going anywhere it seems.  I for one am all for it.

Boots are still the business ladies we got about 2 more months of KNOCKIN BOOTS LEFT lol.. remember to buy classic pairs like riding boots are basic colors so that you can continue to wear them years from now.  Keep the “ON TREND” joints to a minimum because who wants to pay $8003.00 for a boot and the bitch can only be worn that season LOL.. For real.. I don’t believe I have seen any of you sistas pull out that damn Manolo Blahnik Timberland that was all the rage a few years back.. EVEN THOUGH .. they would still work . More Shoe Magic after the Kut!!!

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk

halleloooooo!! I so heart an awesome Coffee Table book.. Here is a classic being offered from the one , the only , Jean Paul Gaultier

Published by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and Abrams…with editing from  Thierry-Maxime Loriot and contributions from Suzy Menkes. This is 424 pages of Gaultier at close range.. it will run you about $149.00 but hey.. that’s cheaper than a pair of Gaultier underwear so have at it LOL..

This is a great stocking stuffer for your in house fashionista… or simply get it for yourself

Get it here.. The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk

Other notable books one should have at fingers reach:

100 Unforgettable Dress… Hal Rubenstein

Irreverent ………Carine Roitfield 

and let us not forget the piece de la resistance:

The Mikki Taylor penned Commander in Chic”, a guidebook through all things saavy and Mrs. O.. NO not Oprah but Mrs. Obama.  Yessss Michelle Obama is clearly the most fashionable first lady since THEEEE JACKI O.. so with that being said,  of course Ms. Taylor would be more than qualified to render the first lady the “Commander in Chic”..

I just love a great book man, hopefully the lady in your life does as well.. it’s a lot cheaper than that 2500.00 tennis bracelet she has dubiously requested lol.

Happy Shopping..

What’s in the BAG this summer..

Antik Batik $390.00 not too bad ehh..

Behold Antik Batik’s  “Costa Besace”,  appliqued PYTHON shoulder bag.. and the price is not higher than giraffes P*&^Y..                                                                  

 LADIES it’s time to add some color to that fine collection of Epi and Damier LV specialties … (yeah right broke bitches lol).. just kidding.. anyway .. carry those.. AND .. bring some color into the well…    I really enjoy the size of these gems right here.. u don’t need a body bag size purse in the summer to carry your EBTcard, pack a gum, rolling papers , ID , lighter and sack a weed.  it’s not that serious to house your lip gloss in a goddamn garment bag just to go to the club so stop… LOL.

It’s summer and it’s all about the beautiful shades of color.  Magenta, Lilacs, shocking pinks and purples, these are better colorful options to add to the ENSEM(ensemble), than that ratchet FUSCHIA china doll wig yo ass was eyein at the wig shop.. GIRL STOP.. GET DAT ASS A BAG ..
