Take a Chance with Chance

I recently discovered a new artist who specializes in musical producing and has recently started recording in debut album, Nice Guy. Chance uses a myriad of beats, melodies, vocals and poignant lyrics in his work. I have been awaiting the album release, and am currently loving his single 'Couldn't Find You Interlude'. It makes me wonder, what the next step he will take.

Clifton Blair, better known by his stage name, Chance, is an American hip hop artist and visionary. Born in Fort Washington, Maryland, Chance spent a good portion of his life converting his love for music into tangible sounds for people from all walks of life to enjoy. Chance's music is a product of experimentation, feeling and passion. He began by experimenting with Techno music; this period in his music career provided him with a unique sound that is still present in his music today. After his bit with Techno music, Chance eased into the rap scene and once more began to experiment with new sounds. It was during his dealings with rap music that Chance began to inject more of his personality into his music. The result was a new sound that is derived from Chance's unique world view. In wake of his mother's lost battle with breast cancer, Chance took a break from the music scene. Fortunately, he was able to create triumph amidst tragedy in the form of a refurbished return to music. Chance is a brand of music that refuses to be limited to the traditions or conventions of contemporary music. When Chance creates music, he creates a portrait of himself. Chance does not just create music, he spills his soul into his melodies and beats. Listen closely and his mind might just speak to you.

Great Outfits: Jessica Szohr

The gold necklace necklace and neon yellow handbag aren't working for me because it is too much. Her cute top is already embellished and the necklace is too much. The yellow neon bag clashes with all of the colors that are already packed in her outfit. I absolutely love her tribal printed shorts and embellished top. The leather strapped sandals compliment the look.


I like this casual outfit of a grey jersey tee tucked into her pants covered by a cute light mauve blazer (that also works like a cardigan) and a cross-body gorgeous leather bag. Her suede sandals work with the outfit. What doesn't work is her pants. The color and fit isn't working for me or Jessica.

In a cute summer dress with her mocha moccasins and handbag. I like the yellow towel. It is not meant to be part of her outfit, but I like the yellow as if it were part of her outfit.

Jessica is out with her arm candy boyfriend Ed Westwick in a bright salmon-red sweater, fedora, dark grey skinny jeans and cute golden buckle mocha leather moccasins.

I wish Jessica belted her cyan slouchy (intentionally or poor fitting?) beaded silk dress. I also wish she had better posture so the dress would fit her better. She also needed a (gold) clutch to work with her metallic strappy sandals.

I am loving Jessica's friend's Rodarte dress. It works wonderfully with her pale complexion and strawberry blond hair. Great out fit buddy. Jessica channels her edgy vibe in a black stitched leather bodice gown. I wish she had a colored clutch to break up the monotony.

Jessica Szohr wore a very summery palm leaf print Jovovich Hawk Spring 2008 dress, with multi-colored stripped heels. I am so glad someone wore my beloved Jovovich-Hawk!

Jessica Szohr usually looks very grungy and her hair is usually wild and out of control, but last night, she scrubbed up very well, with her hair pulled back to allow her stunning ivory J.Mendel Spring 2009 gown to shine. She completes her look with a Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

Jessica Szohr wore an asymmetric black and nude dress with matching crossing heels and a small black satin clutch. This dress is sexy without being too obnoxious.

Jessica Szohr’s character Vanessa was on set wearing this ethnic inspired contrast print Tibi strapless dress with a bright pink color-block panel down one side. But it’s just the right look for Vanessa, who teams her dress with tan studded heels.

I was gob smacked by how stunning Jessica Szohr looked on set wearing a stunning ivory Reem Acra Spring 2008 gown. Jessica, who was filming with Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass), looked absolutely stunning as she filmed scenes wearing the delicate chiffon and satin gown with beaded cap sleeves. It’s an extremely romantic gown, and the elegant updo and bold red lips adds to the overall charm.

Great Outfits: Liv Tyler

Liv's diamond snake ring adds just the right amount of shimmer to her outfit.

In Calvin Klein

I feel like this is particularly flattering on her. It's very retro, and she has kind of a retro aura to me.

Great Outfits: Michelle Williams

Great Outfits: Nicola Roberts

Not only do I love redheads, but I am favoring Girls Aloud singer Nicola Robert's style.
