Boxing Kitten, one of my favorite brands, has just released their Spring/Summer 2011 lookbook. As we saw back in April 2010 during BK's Resort 2010 presentation, ethnic prints are still going strong for the East Coast based brand.  This season's collection has a little bit more edge than the last one, due to the strong presence of the black-and-white color duo infused into most of the clothes this time around.

The black-and-white combo is already expected to be a big color motif for this Spring/Summer season, which is a bit of a shocker as previous Spring/Summer seasons have given us softer color palettes to look forward to.  Though would be good to point out that this current Fall/Winter season gave us a sea of delicate nudes and creams with olive greens and light pinks.  Soft, natural colors in the colder seasons and then hard, monochromatic colors in the warmer seasons - unexpected, yes; does it have my approval, oh you bet.

Take a look below at some of my favorite outfits from Boxing Kitten's newly released lookbook:

Jeffery Campbell's Throwdown Shoe @ Karmaloop

One of my favorite shoe labels, Jeffrey Campbell, have just come out with their Throwdown shoe. It's a great hidden-wedged ankle boot that will be perfect to wear for the upcoming Spring season thanks to the fact that the upper part of the shoe is made from breathable canvas material.  The roped hemp lining around the bottom meshes great with the canvas to give the shoe an overall natural, soft look.

The Throwdown is a great shoe option for those who aren't a fan of showing off their toes in sandals or peek-a-boos.  Last Spring and Summer, I always wore my black combat boots. Yes, my feet did get sweaty, but I'd rather have sweaty, stinky feet in my own privacy then expose my toes to the world and the urban elements on those hot New York City streets. 

But now that the Throwdown is available in an olive color, an all-black option (which is my personal fave), or the limited edition Karmaloop exclusive "Chino" color, I may just have to invest in a pair so my feet, socks, and roommates don't have a reason to hate me come Spring time.

Be sure to check out to pick up a pair or two!

For the record, I am a girl who likes to wear men's clothing. Why? Well for one thing, I can actually breathe in men's clothing, as opposed to the way that so many women's clothing pieces fit so tightly. Another thing is that I like wearing over-sized clothes - I can hide what I don't want the world to see, and show off my better bits!

Hence, I've become more and more interested in following men's designers like Henrik Vibskov, SIBLING, and of course, Rick Owens. One of my favorite shops in London, LN-CC, just started carrying the SS11 collection from Rick Owens for both men and women. Rick Owens' women's items are actually solid stuff - and I think maybe even a tad bit looser fitting than the men's items! Below are some of my favorite items at the shop from Mr. Owens:
