This photo of Rihanna has been circulating on the internet this past few days and it truly describes the ultimate 'street chic'. Totally loving how she pull off the 'IT' Homies Sweatshirt by Brian Litchenberg with the ultra-sexy Saint Laurent two tone leather pump (US$895). Check out more of her street style in her signature sporty-luxe, street-mix-high-fashion.
Speaking of parody designer tees, high-end designers seem to be no longer in charge of their class, the lines are becoming more blurred as mock designer t-shirts prevails over the genuine.

I know some people who loathe the trend and will never wanna wear one. As far as I'm concerned sometimes it's never wrong to have a little fun. I know for sure at one point this whole thing got to stop.
