Erika Fatale Whitney Houston Tribute Videos

Whitney Houston was by far my greatest musical influence growing up.  I always say she was my vocal coach when I was young, as I would spend hours listening to her, trying to emulate her, and aspiring to be even HALF the immense talent that she was. Growing up in Chicago, "I Will Always Love You" was my go-to song to sing at every Chicago Idol competition, talent show, audition that I did.  My first demo at 15-16 was actually mostly Whitney Houston covers and that's what first got me industry attention with Sony.  I was known as "White"ney Houston quite a bit in my hometown haha.  Here are my 2 acapella tribute videos to the incredible Whitney Houston whose incomparable voice inspired me to find my own.

Karlie Kloss / Nick Knight for Topshop

Just watched this video of Karlie Kloss modeling emerging British designers for Topshop.  The film's directed by Nick Knight and is incredible. I had to post it right away :) Karlie looks amazing as always and shows just what a chameleon she is.  The film is to commemorate 10 years of Topshop's support of the British Fashion Council's NEWGEN program. Enjoy!

New Royalty

More great songs, great meetings, great things happening in 2012!!! Happy Hump Day to you all.
I found this great cheap find at Forever 21- this Royalty sweatshirt (Erika means royalty after all ;)
I paired it with this Japanese inspired bandanna from Popkiller here in LA. 

I don't know about you all, but I'm still heartbroken hearing about Whitney Houston passing away :( She was my biggest inspiration and idol growing up, and the woman who truly was my vocal coach growing up/taught me how to sing.  I never would have had the huge passion and desire to sing and do what I'm doing now had it not been for her ENORMOUS influence on me.  I always performed a Whitney classic at all of the singing competitions I did in Chicago and started getting the name "White"ney Houston in my hometown :) I'll be working on a little tribute to my idol hopefully tomorrow to post here soon. In the meantime, here is a great video showing her incomparable greatness. RIP Whitney..

I feel a bit guilty showing an outfit on the blog without wearing some big winter jacket, hat, or scarf like so many of the other bloggers have had to this week.  The titles of their posts have been things like: "Siberian Wind," "We're Not In Russia," etc. Luckily, it's warm and sunny here in LA (although I'm from Chicago so I've had my fair share of hibernation weather too).  This outfit feels very "Terminator" to me. The cargo pants, boots, glasses. Very tough girl, so watch out! ;) Hope you all have a great weekend!

Je me sens un peu coupable montrant une tenue sur le blog sans veste, chapeau, ou un foulard comme plusieurs de filles blogueurs ont fait cette semaine.  Le sujet de leurs postes ont été des choses comme:  Siberian Wind, We're Not In Russia, etc. Heureusement, il fait chaud et plein du soleil ici à Los Angeles (mais je viens de Chicago donc j'ai vécu de nombreuses années en températures négatives!)  J'espere que tu passes un bon week end!
