Hey Y’all!

It’s Your Gyrl, Ms. Carmen aka Platinum Voice PR bringing another Platinum Fashion Item to you!

Chi-Town is being represented by the hottest clothing line, Collective Thoughts Clothing. Collective Thoughts is a Chicago based clothing line established in March of 2013, by Abraham Sims. Abe Sims, the CEO and creative director thought Chicago should be represented in its own words by one of its own. Abe Sims started the clothing  line with a small budget and is funded strictly from T-shirt sales. His goal is to expand into other entities of the fashion world; such as denim, hats, jackets, coats, just to name a few.

Mr. Sims has always thought of himself as a person with great taste in fashion. “I felt it was time to explore the possibility of collecting my thoughts and making a fashion sense of it; to see what others would think. I look to expand outside the Chicago-land  area into other cities as well.”

The brand mostly features printed t-shirts and uses controversial designs, to generate response and dialogue. The most recognizable “CHI” print features a variety of notable people and landmarks grouped together to form the word, “CHI”. Collective Tee Clothing’s sole purpose is to bring awareness to the city of Chicago and the people who live there.

Collective Thoughts offers a variety of shirts for ladies and men including tanks, midriff and v-neck. The products can be purchased at  Chicago boutiques like: Sole’ About You, Pink Junkie Boutique and on the company’s website.

Overall, CEO Sims calls the “CHI” t-shirt a “trip down memory lane” because of the “people” and “places” seen; it reminds one of their favorite singer, sports figure or a place where they had a romantic date. Collective Tees Clothing is the brand representing the “CHI” exclusively.

[Platinum Pick] Platinum Book to Read -The Darker Side of Evil by Andre N. Turner

Hey Y’all!

It’s Your Gyrl, Ms. Carmen aka Platinum Voice PR bringing another Platinum Book to Read to you! This month I’ve chosen, “The Darker Side of Evil” by Andre N. Turner. First, I will give you a brief history about the author:

45478_365029713614920_1476852849_n

Andre Nicholas Turner is a 43-year-old Chicago native. A graduate of Southern Illinois University and The School of Hard Knocks, Mr. Turner grew up a product of the streets of Chicago, but refused to let them define him. A freelance writer & staunch advocate for prison reform, Andre contributes to Examiner.com as the Chicago Prison Policy Examiner. Andre uses his tough urban upbringing to add the unique flair that resonates throughout the body of my literary offerings. Andre has recently completed his first true crime manuscript, “The Darker Side of Evil,” which reveals the existence and depravity of the Black serial killer. His passion and tenacity will make Andre N. Turner a name to look for in the world of literature.

THUMBNAIL_IMAGE

The Darker Side of Evil debunks the popular myth that all serial killers are White. Quite to the contrary, a great many of the most prolific serial killers in American history are Black. Taking advantage of America’s infatuation with murder, Hollywood has reaped untold millions from their constant portrayal of the Caucasian serial murderer. All the while media outlets refuse to acknowledge the existence of the African-American serial killer. The unwillingness of the media to recognize the existence of these predators not only allow them to hide in plain sight but may have cost many innocent victims their lives as a result.

Ladies! Check out the Coach 2013 Spring Lineup!!!

Hey Y’all!

It’s Your Gyrl, Ms. Carmen aka Platinum Voice PR bringing another Platinum Fashion Item Choice to you! Everyone has always loved Coach—but have they just created the most surprising shoe collection ever?

coach image

Think you know Coach? Me too! They’re the never-fail, always-elegant accessories-and-fashion brand with a matchless heritage, right? Well, yes, they are. But in the last few years they’ve been throwing us a few curveballs—amazing, high-impact colored bags, new twists on classic shapes, and now, this stunning new shoe collection.

Unlike anything we’ve seen from Coach before, but with all its legendary quality and taste, these handcrafted beauties feature 21st-century elements—multicolored woven leathers, mirror-metallic leather, the classic Ticking Stripe blown up to abstraction, glittery boat shoes, and more. This is a higher-impact, extra-luxe Coach, but one that still maintains all the care and craft that earned it a legendary reputation. Again, we’re surprised by the flashy, femme, fantastic results—but not surprised that I want every single shoe, now!

As a young child, while most elementary school kids were outdoors enjoying jump rope and hopscotch, Gaynelle White was exhorted to learn to sew by her grandmother. She taught her simple techniques which sparked not only her curiosity, but were the beginning of her love and desire to express creativity and style. Gaynelle loved to watch her mother get dressed for a night out with the girls and would even style her mother’s girlfriends clothing, apply their make-up and even style these grown women’s hair at the tender age of just 9 years old.

Along with her sister, Gaynelle would create fashion shows in the family’s living room with clothes made of sheets mixed with her mother’s clothing often to the amusement of the women. Not realizing that she had found her passion in life at such an early age, these occurrences would be the catalysts to a career in fashion design and sparked her undeniable styling and entrepreneurial spirit in the beauty & fashion industries. Gaynelle would tear pages out of magazines, rummage through her mother and grandmother’s closets and look at covers of albums for hours trying to imitate the looks and styles of the seemingly unaffordable pieces of the hottest designs of the day.

All this became an obsession of Gaynelle’s as she thinks back to a time in high school when the results of her extensive labor were confirmed. She remembers a time when no one at her school was wearing bands around their heads and being teased when she wore one, but what happened next was the very moment that she realized the effect of self-expression, individual style and confidence, because the next day three other girls mimicked her style and had on headbands!!! Words like trend setter, designer and entrepreneur were unfamiliar to her at the time, but fast forward three decades, and those are the very words used to describe the unique, yet eclectic style of apparel at her boutique Philthy Ragz, owned by Gaynelle and her husband David, the astute businessman.

It was David that challenged her to create a line of clothing that is sassy and sensuous, yet stylish and classy and if you are familiar with Philthy Ragz, you know that the boutique has it all! Having that special eye for classic, timeless apparel and bold new trends, in 2005 she created the Philthy Ragz Collection of clothing that focused on invigorating color, hot trends and sexy sensuousness. The Philthy Ragz brand has since emerged as a breakout success in the women’s fashion arena. The Philthy Ragz designs are eclectic without eccentricity and combine the designers’ style savvy eye for fashion forward apparel.

Her aim has been to build beautiful pieces that are eminently fashionable and highly affordable. The line has been especially constructed with the real woman in mind; the Philthy Ragz collection has filled a void in the marketplace for women with curves and evokes within them that inner confidence that escapes them with many of today’s designers. This assurance is reflected transparently while silently radiating the style and class which has become an intrinsic design element of the Philthy Ragz brand. In 2007, following the overwhelming success of the clothing line, the couple decided to open the Philthy Ragz Boutique to showcase the Philthy Ragz collection, trendy apparel and one-of-a-kind handbags all chosen with Gaynelle’s special eye for pieces that are edgy, and evoke panache.

Inspired by high fashion runway, the Philthy Ragz collection and boutique has captured the attention of celebrities and stylish women worldwide who desire to obtain a look that sets them apart from the crowd and places them into a league of their own. We invite you to discover Philthy Ragz for yourself and experience the alluring euphoric feeling of the collection which serves as a must have for that trendsetting fashionista.

 I’ve seen this pair on some NBA courts recently, specifically on the feet of Boston Celtic point guard, Rajon Rondo. The Foamposites are officially a black/black-medium grey colorway but the black on black leads to it’s nickname – Stealth. The release is rounded out by an icy sole.
