Inside Style on Main St ..with The Socialite Dj and Mr.BlackTie

  When the Abelman family asked Black Smoke to spin for their ‘Take Me Home’ grand sale event October 1, 9am – 1pm, well of course me and The Socialite DJ agreed to do it. We just had to figure out what kind of style of music we were going to spin. We decided to go with electro style with a twist of Deep House and Country! It was a great for the Grand Sale and what excellent way to start the Holiday festivities; A great buy and good music.img_20161001_09263445

So I and The Socialite JD went into the studio shop mood the night before the event. It was a long 7 hours straight. By the time we had the music just right for the event, it was 7am. We had to get ready for the event. Getting all dress and grabbing the gear, speakers and all.

We got to Inside Styles by 8:30am; it didn’t take long to set everything up. The Socialite DJ started it off. I myself went to grab some coffee and have a Cig break. She didn’t go for anything vibing yet just warming things up. But to my surprise customers began to walk in. After The Socialite DJ warmed up, I got behind the tables and started off with electro swing, Bing Crosby to Disney Aladdin, why not?

The sale was called ‘Take Me Home Warehouse Sale’. How can you go wrong with electro swing set style spinning Disney Aladdin? From there The Socialite DJ spun a beautiful set of Deep House, Country swing. From everyone who came seemed to love the style of music that was being played.

Then we did something new to our Black Smoke set, we began to just spin music choices right after each choice. We were playing all styles of swing music, from country swing to deep house. I also spun Latin style sing into the mix. The Socialite DJ followed with country and pop swing. Then we finished with our signature style Liquid Jazz set! By the time it was over there was a few more buyers coming in!

Grand Opening with Juan Muniz at Z Boutique Zappos Headquarters Las Vegas

zapposThe very first day I met Juan Muniz was a week after I became the resident DJ for the Arts Factory Bar & Bistro. I t was also my first Friday DJing event as well. Juan Muniz introduced me to not just himself but his character Felipe. One thing about Juan Muniz, is he is an artists who is focused. Which I have met countless of them) that had or do have the talent, but no motivation, no path, no focused point. But Juan had, and still has the same path that he’s been on. Focused point on his art work, and character Felipe. Funny we kept bumping into each other, throughout the years. First Fridays I’d see him at his booth. Doing his Felipe book. While myself DJing First Friday on other gigs.1470337292976

Once in a while you wonder and think and ask, “Am I really making progress?” Well Juan Muniz did something unusual for artists and had a great grand opening of Felipe at the Z Boutique at Zappos. It was incredible seeing what had happened for him. The coolest part, I have to say was DJing for him. Juan Muniz is focused on his path. I’m proud to have known him before all the Felipe crazed. LOL. We will see each other once more! Until then. See More at www.MrBlackTie.com

The Different Shades Of Photography …

BEAUTY

In the early days of photography, photographers had no choice but to shoot in black and white, as it was the only available medium. Then in 1936, the invention of kodachrome gave colour photography to the world. But black and white photography didn’t die off, instead it flourished. Modern black and white photography at it’s best is art, and many photographers regard it as the purest form of photography.

So why does black and white photography command such acclaim? One reason is that colour is a distraction. It takes attention away from the visual building blocks of a great photo; texture, tonal contrast, shape, form and lighting. A photographer shooting in black and white has to learn how to use all these elements to create a memorable image.

Black and white nude photography can scenic photographs look stunning. Make an essential part of your black and white photographs look their best is shooting in the right light. Shooting black and white photographs can really change the dimensions of the entire image. This article gives you some tips for taking some great scenic black and white images.

If you attempt the perfect panoramic shot to be recorded, it is important that you use a tripod. The tripod will help you get some steady shots of the view that you want to record. Later, this makes it easier for you to get it all together to get a panoramic view.

Note composition in shaping your nude photos. The pros use a simple formula as a “rule of thirds”, which simply means, mentally divide your image into three sections. It is rarely a good idea to put your main feature in the center of the composition. Place your guess many important focus in the right third portion of your composed shot.

In nude photography, make sure that you focus on the quality and not the quantity of images, is that you take. It is always better for you to get ten great shots than one hundred average shots in one day. Quality is always the better choice.

amy1As a photographer, you can not have tunnel vision. You must be able to see more. You think. Fly to yourself like an eagle up and down trained over the entire landscape, not as a sniper on a single object through a scope more to see what’s around you, how to get the best shots.

The Begining of Coffee Grounds ( Austin Tx )

coffee-grounds101
The start of everything for me.. It was a love story that became just that; A story. So long ago. The pain is no Longer there, but the adventure did begin from this very moment. It was my dream to have the abilty to share my experience and knowledge. As well bring other’s out about and let everyone know they are not alone. WE all make mistakes, and in due time I wanted to figure out why we do those things and such. I loved Jamie Frost, but did I love her enough to chase her down and prove how much I loved her? No, of course not. I figured she didn’t love me enough to stay and figure things out. Why should I.. See I could go, could’ve or she should bullshit lol. What I did figure out though I needed to search  out why we do the things we do in the name of love. Im so tired of not knowing or feeling empty at moments. Knowing I’m not the only one person out there searching for answers. While thus for many who are dealing with what style they call being in a relationship to trying to do a professional career. For many of us we want both, for many so can’t handle it, while other’s plainly cheat to just lies as well. I never understood why would one lie to that person they supposedly loved or cared about? And  the list goes on with why I created this, Coffee Grounds. I could go on and on, but truely I don’t. I have been asked sooo many times what is Coffee Grounds about? Well here is the starting point of it all, well the video part anyway lol . Much Love and Respect.

Mr.BlackTie Goes Timeless with a Blend of Nature with NokTurnal at WWD Magic ..Project

Spice101While DJing at some very cool spots at downtown locations such as Bonze Café at the Market to new sensation Eureka!; I had the Pleasure of getting a glimpse of Nokturnal Designs while at WWD Magic. Nokturnal is a priceless wooden watch made from 100 percent wood and featured with a Japanese quartz movement. They offer a perfect blend of high fashion, natures truest form with a classic look. A one year limited warranty is standard on every watch they sell. Nokturnal has four styles. One I will go into is the Maple. It’s a hardwood that ranges in color from gold to off white. Many can say they have seen maple being typically a straight grain in maple but waviness isn’t uncommon. It’s mostly as odoriess wood that has been used for hundreds of years in everything from buildings to watches!IMG_20180213_111636

With a lifespan of 300 years and over 200 species it’s a no brainer why Nokturnal picked Maple to be one of the four designs for those of the Fashion and nature world to pick from. To see the other three of four go to www.Nokturnalwatches.com

Mr. Black Tie visits Sourcing at WWD Magic Goes on a Walk London

walkonlondon22
One of the finest Brit Family in the business of making, not just GREAT quality shoes for the gents on the go; But well done in creativity and style as well. I had a blast interviewing these gentlemen about their passion, and how family traditions, and family value means everything to them in their business! I have to admit I was shocked that they weren’t at Tent or Project. Walk London shouldn’t be just a booth in the back, which they were.

20180214_122953halfIf anyone has been to Sourcing at Magic it’s stupid big. How many shoes and designs can there be? You’d be bloody shocked of the amount of shoes that are there lol. I rarely go into Sourcing for that damn reason lol. But I saw something that caught my eye at the media room for the press. Walk London’s flyer; It was simple yet, it was stylish. I also meet one of the three partners for Walk London. WALK2

He Simply told me he was one out of three, him, his brother, and his father designs shoes for men. I said I would come by and check it out. And I’m glad I did. I had a story for the day! These are shoe’s that Zappos should have on their website. Seriously Walk London should be in the center of the what’s what, and the must shoes for men. You should have at least one pair of these unique styles in your closet. Don’t get me wrong who don’t like a pair of Nikes or my choice of sneaker Adidas. But as my mum once told me, “A man should have that one Tie that just says everything about himself.” Such is a thought and I feel about a man’s shoes.

Brinko Ties Project..Magic ..Las Vegas Fashion Week ..

Brinko Ties is the joint effort of Bethany Brinko and Elizabeth Sutherlin who were inspired by fashion designer, collector and grandmother, Maria Victoria Brinko. Maria was born and raised in New York City where she was a woman before her time and was always thinking about fashion in a smart way. Her designs were based on great technical skill and flattering cuts for the woman’s figure.
In an age when men dominated the scene, Maria was studying at FIT, working and living in New York as a successful businesswoman. Maria worked as a personal director for some of the largest department stores of that time. Never satisfied with the ordinary, Maria took old ideas and made them new, wearing men’s ties accentuated with sparkling brooches. From a young age Bethany and her Grandma shared a strong and unique bond. Bethany would beg her Grandmother to tell her stories of her time in New York, and was inspired by Maria’s strength, skill, intelligence, innovation and creativity.
When Bethany and Elizabeth were introduced they were in college. Fashion was their first connection. Bethany was wearing one of her Grandma Maria’s pieces and Elizabeth immediately inquired about it. That was the conversation that started a long friendship and now a business partnership. Bethany and Elizabeth took Maria’s courage and creativity and turned it into something truly made for women, a woman’s tie, structured like a necklace and each accentuated by a handpicked vintage brooch. A deliberately chosen button serves as the closure both for aesthetics and ease of wear, making this more of a hybrid between a tie, a scarf and a necklace. The business also now expands to include a revolutionary take on classic men’s neck wear by thoughtfully incorporating new fabrics to bring a fresh face to traditional style.
Grandma Maria passed away just a year ago but her spirit carries on. Now Elizabeth and Bethany are bringing to fruition a blended vision of three women. We hope you like it, and know that each tie is it’s own piece of art made just for you see more fashion atttp://www.TheFashionRadio.com

Keepers Clothing (Austin, TX ) Don’t Be just another Ducky in the Pond.!

205651_214865061860639_5393555_n

The average look isn’t in anymore, no longer the plain shirts or boring ass ties and un-stylish jeans. large-post-content-text”>means go fucking beyond Levis and Dickies ). The look for the men of fashion, which goes for those who are not gay as well lol!

201507_214865051860640_2431577_o

The look that is in now is the dashing look of poise and grace. The jacket to be is the ubiquitous, two-button jacket and neat, sleek, white pocket squares are the perfect look for the new season. Another look that is soooo making it’s way is a must, the spread collar shirts, especially those with designs, they go well with solid suits jacket without the ties.Yet a solid, vibrant tie does goes well with nice creased slacks, gives the sharp, elegant look for a gent on the move, yet conservative enough for the work place and hot enough to simply put on a sports jacket and would be ready to go out clubbing..205651_214865055193973_4038100_n

Oh yes, this New Years fashion for men is going to be smashing very much indeed.
You can’t go wrong with International Designers Giani Manzoni (fantastic value for made in Italy) Ermenegildo Zegna formal wear second to none. (In my opinion) also Italo Ferretti and Brioni which many don’t know, these are all tailored formal wear.Now with such includes Eton formal shirts to Carrot and Gibbs bow ties and vests, and shoe designs by Cole Hahn, Bruno Magil and my favorite To Boot New York. If one must even go to step up stairs on the fashion food chain keeper of Austin, TX have em. Brioni, Jhane Barnes, Emenegildo Zegna and of course Versace. If your going to go all out with your fashion taste and style.201507_214865058527306_584784_o

Do it with Keepers of Austin, “Keepers also have something for the adventuring Gentlemen as well. For those who are casual and sporty, once again Emenegildo Zegna this time sport wear (Reside the master’s of fashion) Tailorbyrd sports shirts, A.G Premium Denim, HITL, Burberry, and another favorite of mine, Robert Garhan and Lorenzini. Keeper’s hip, stylish, accessible, you’ll look like you’ve spent a million bucks on yourself, but in truth you’ll spend slightly less.The best part they are open from 10 am to 6 pm, 6 days a week. And if you need a private session, other hours for an appointment is available. Since 1995 they’ve been dedicated to making gentlemen looking good.
