Sushi Fake-Out

The Vegan Sushi

Ahimi Nigiri Sushi

This picture of Sushi may look like an Ahi Nigiri, but it’s not!  It’s actually a tomato, along with sushi rice, a bit of seaweed and shoyu. Could of…and did FOOL ME.   Wow! Looks just like Ahi!

I have yet to try it.  But they say that the texture and flavor of the tomato are transformed through a special technique, providing a savory and meaty taste.  Five natural ingredients are added to the tomato to give it the special look, feel and taste.

It’s a vegan Nigiri.  It’s name is Ahimi, by Ocean Hugger Foods. Available now at Whole Foods.  Next time I go to Whole Foods, I’ll give it a try and let you know how it tastes.

Have you tried it?

See you on the Streetz!

This Weeks Kicks in Vids

Kicks in Vids

In Julia Michaels feat. Trippie Redd – Jump Video we see some nice triple stacked Adidas. Not sure if they are for sale or the NFRS?

Royce da 5’9 – Caterpillar feat Eminem,  King Green – When Eminem FINALLY raps, he’s wearing the ultra high top AF1’s. Em’s always been a big Nike fan. Usually rockin’ the latest gear. Including his very own Jordan’s which go for 4k+.
The Vid’s pretty fun the way Eminem just stand there not moving. But when he comes on..Whoah! BAM, It’s on! (BTW: I can’t hear all the words but pretty sure it’s R Rated).

Dua Lipa’s – Blow Your Mind-Has 2018’s streetwear meets High Street on Fit. From Layers, to camo to slouch jacket, modernized Bombers to Big Jewels. It’s all in here. The only thing missing are the Triple S Balenciaga’s. They would have matched up nicely on Dua. Bonus: Banging, Ultra Catchy Hook on the Vid!

Drake-God’s Plan – We can’t leave you without playing this. It’s got to be the Biggest song of 2018. Even thought it’s now only May 2018. It already has 485,502,568 Views on YouTube! In regards to Kicks,I’m pretty sure I see some Triple S Balenciag’s in this vid. And you can see many alliterations of Jordan’s both Real and possibly some #realfake. Drake is donning Nike head to toe 100%. Rumor has it he is going to the dark side or Bright side (Adidas) Find it hard to believe since he’s such a big NIKE fan. There must be a story to this disfacuation from Nike. As of today, he’s still with Nike. But his logo has been coming and going on the new Jordan Raptors Kicks. So, we shall see if he stays or if he goes. Enjoy the Vid.

Enjoy the Weekend! See you on the Streetz!

#RealFake

Everything is Real

There’s 5 Diamonds in my 2 ears.  Some are Cubic Zirconia’s, some are Diamonds.  When people ask if they are real, I always reply-Yes. Because they are real…earrings. They’ve been in my ears for so many years, I couldn’t tell you which are the Real and which are the Fake.

What is Fake

When it comes to Kicks and Clothes.  It gets harder to tell which are the Real and Which are the Fake.  When you walk into the Opening Ceremony  store in Soho, NY and 90% of the people are wearing very rare Yeezy’s and stacked Balanciaga’s.  You wonder which are the Real? Which are the Fake? They didn’t make that many of the Yeezy’s for them all to be real. But, very hard to tell which are which as you walk around the store. The buyers at Flight Club or Stadium Goods would know which are which.  Me, they all looked pretty real.

What the Fake?

I own a pair of Jordan 1 Royals. Paid what I thought was a fair price for a limited run.  I thought the store was legit when I went to the brick & mortar. But, have seen the same store on IG stories selling very Fake looking Kicks. So, I don’t know?  Might be real, might be fake. Sure hope for $240 they are real.

Fake is Fake

I saw this video below a few months ago about Korea’s fake Fashion scene.  Asked a friend going there to get me a couple of Supreme shirts in XXL.  Knew that they were going to be Real-Fake’s, but figured, let’s see what it’s like.  Got the XXL because I figured they would shrink to an XL.  The XXL’s were more like L’s, so they shrunk to M’s.  And the logos were rubberized.  In this case, the Fakes were very Fake.  I may wear the black one a few more times.  The Grey will most likely go to my friend’s store. I’ll tell him not to price it too high. But, whoever buys it.  What will they say?  Real? Fake? or #RealFake

Real is Real

I do own a couple of awesome Rick Owens pieces that I personally bought in their Soho, NY location.  Both pieces are of extraordinary quality.  They are as real as real can be. But, I owe a bit of cash on my credit card.  They are very real and so is my Credit Card bill.  I wore the kicks once and the pants are too nice to wear.  In this case Real is very nice, very real, but should I have gotten the 2 items. Probably not.  Cause, now I’m real #broke.

Conclusion

Hmm. I believe first and foremost in supporting the original designers. With that said, I think a mixture of Real & Fake is ok, kinda’ like the earrings in my ears. 80% Real 20% Fake works for me. The worst thing is spending big bucks on something you think is Real, but it is actually Fake.  Thoughts?  Let us know in the comments section?

The AHOLA Shirt F/W 2018-19

The Newest Streetzblog Creation

The AHOLA Shirt-Pro Bowl Edition F/W 2018-19

I needed a slight break in the action of Non Stop creations from Scratch. So, took an old plaid shirt from Target and a pretty new Pro Bowl Aloha shirt, combined the 2 and created the AHOLA Shirt. Over time it will Morph & Fray, which will give it even more Flavor. This side project took about 15 hours to complete. 3/7/18

The AHOLA shirt -Streetzblog

For some reason, I thought this would take a couple of hours to complete. But it’s a bit more intricate.  Here’s the process:

  1. Draw shapes on the front with Pink or Light Blue Pencil
  2. Cut out the Aloha print fabric to fit, pin on front if you have time.  You can skip pinning on the front, but I like to do it, to see how it will look
  3. Then take each piece off the front and carefully pin to the inside.  This is actually the most important step. You need to pin each piece in place with many pins.  If you’re lazy on this step, you will end up with an ugly pinched up shirt.  Take your time and pin each piece precisely
  4. Sew each piece on the inside of the shirt.  Do the Back First, then the front then the sleeves
  5. The Reveal!  This is my favorite part. Be very careful, pinch fabric on the front and make a very small hole. Then take some really sharp small scissors and cut the shapes out
  6. Pro Tip:  On the Sleeves, I carefully cut out slits. THEN sew lines thorugh the area, so that it will only fray in certain areas.  This is also fun to do. And will give your creation some expensive looking frays as it morphs through each wash and wear.
  7. Press Shirt and Wear it on Aloha Friday

Exuding Elegance in Le Cite De La Mode

Yohji Yamamoto Fall/Winter 2018-19

Paris Fashion Week:  March 2, 2018

One of my goals is to make it to NY Fashion week. After seeing the Paris shows in Feb/Mar 2018, I’m thinking a better goal is to make it to Paris Fashion week. This show is from the Paris portion of the Feb/Mar Quad Fashion Foray.  New York, London, Milan & Paris. And it is Exquisite. Yes, Paris is the goal! Or as YY calls it on the IG post: the Cite de la Mode

Only doing Highlights today.  The show doesn’t really have any low-lights other than the color brown…LOL   I’ll stick with the 2018 easy to read, super-quick attention span style of writing with the fun fonts, colors, bolding etc.

Highlights:

Flowing, Graceful, & Peaceful 

Color Palette:  Black, Dark Grey, A Bit of White and some Brown

A bit of Bowie influence on the Make-Up side of things. Rectangles over one eye

Asymmetric, Bulky-Fluidity, Moving like a slowed down silent movie

Amazing hairdo’s

Classic, Yet a la mode, On-trend, Traditional YY

Comfy Kicks in Highs and Lows-Extra Nice Boots, Cool Tennies in Black and White

Did I say lots and lots of the color Black! YAH!!

Check out the crowd, it’s like they’re frozen in time, in a trance like state! I don’t think I saw a single person move the whole show. Amazing.  And by the looks of the crowd, seems like they took their iPhones from them before the show?  Maybe?

What do you think of the show? This season’s Runway shows?  See you on the Streetz!
