Men's Fashion: Tips on What to Wear for NYE

Season Greetings Gents,
New Years Eve is coming faster than we realized. In the back of everyone's mind is "What should I wear for New Year's Eve?" No one wants to be overdressed for the occasion but at the same time everyone wants to be recognized. Here are a couple ideas and tips.

The first look is the classic, "All black everything" theme. This look is harder to perfect than many people realize but looks great for any occasion. It requires the perfect pair of sneakers and black pants and a nice fitting black jacket.



The second look is a little more classy. This look is basic and essentially a sweater and a lighter more basic sneaker with a classic pair of denim. You can switch the look up a little if you'd like with a classic oxford shirt under the sweater to add a little energy or keep it basic with a white t-shirt.



The third look is perhaps my favorite. khakis and a denim jacket. This look is great for all occasions and is virtually impossible to go wrong with. The key to the outfit is a nicely fit pair of khakis and the perfect denim jacket.



As always, accessories such as a watch, glasses, etc. are an essential part of bringing your look to life. The fit of the clothes is the key to making it look good. Remember to layer clothing to help combat the cold winter weather. A fresh haircut is often times what pulls it all together and shades are almost a must to hide signs of intoxication. The key to fashion success is adding your own twist to it and making it your own.

These styles can be found at stores like: The GAP, Zara, Top Man, Uniqlo, Banana Republic, etc. for cost efficient prices. It doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg to look nice.

Good luck putting your outfit together for this New Year's Eve! Be safe and enjoy.. Happy New Year's!!

Jeremy Hazell Shot



Reports are just coming out that Seton Hall Senior Guard, Jeremy Hazell was shot four times during an attempted robbery. Hazell is home now resting comfortably according to sources.

Hazell know for his lethal shooting abilities on the court, was shot in his hometown of Harlem last night. It is not life threatening by any means which is good. Police are releasing no details at this time.

“He was shot last night in his hometown [Harlem] after an attempted robbery,” Mike Sweeney, spokesman for Seton Hall, told Adam Zagoria by phone. “He was back home for the holiday. He was shot during an attempted robbery. He was shot under his right arm. He was taken to St. Luke’s Roosevelt, treated and released this morning.

Hazell has not played since November 19th when he broke his wrist and was slated to be out 4-6 weeks.

We here at Novembers Children wish Jeremy Hazell a quick recovery and hope too see him on the court in the next couple months and in the NBA one day.

Special thanks to Adam Zagoria who broke the story.

Women's Fashion: NYE Sexy Tips on What to Wear

Season Greetings,
Ladies New Years Eve is steady approaching and the big question on every girl's mind is what to wear?! If you need help on exactly what material you should get, first figure out the look you are going for! Sexy, Casual or Cute? Lace seems to be on the market for high bidding from your favorite celebrity to the girl next door. Remember not to over do lace its already sheer so avoid the typical trashy look.

**Notice how these ladies still look very elegant with their lace but not over done. Keyshia has on a black lace corset, so to still keep it looking regal she wore a form fitting skirt that wasn't too short or long.**
celebrity-lace-<span class=

If you want a sheek but cute look,The safe theme is all black everything. Black looks great for any season, holiday, or party. Like the model in the picture below demonstrates how something so simple can look so rich and I guarantee with the right accessories you will be the hot commodity at your NYE party. The bow tie shirt already plays the role of a necklace so a nice pair of earrings and a beautiful lip shade can make your whole outfit pop (ladies don't be afraid to rock some lipstick)

Brett's Streak in the Moats




297 straight games. September 27th, 1992 was Brett's first game of his streak verse The Pittsburgh Steelers. His last game, December 4th, 2010. 297 straight games. Wow.

Now everyone will say Brett is a sports diva with his on and off retirement talks but how can you look past this streak. Past his career. Favre might not be Americas sweetheart but he definitely did something no other man could take and that is the the streak. For 18 seasons Favre was a target of the defense. 11 built men on the opposite side of the ball to him, staring him down, just waiting to get a hit. NO ONE could take him out ... that was until Arthur Moats. Arthur Moats was four years old when Brett's streak started and now he's always going to be remembered as the guy who ended Favre's streak. Oh did I mention... HE'S A ROOKIE. A round 6 pick by the Buffalo Bills.

To Brett I say, congrats on a streak that possibly can never be broken. To Artuhur, I think a lot of people would like to say thank you for finally putting an end to this. To Jenn Sterger, your case against Brett will finally start and to Tavaris Jackson I say, you got Osi and Tuck tonight, good luck.

Golden Hurricane




It's all Golden for Hurricane fans I guess you could say. Miami (FL) has hired former Temple coach Al Golden as new head coach weeks after firing Randy Shannon.

Golden was with Temple for five seasons starting 1-10 in his first season but winning 17 games in his last two seasons as coach.

This year The Owls went 8-4 but were not invited to a BCS Bowl game.

Miami always loaded with talent on the defense is finally getting a defensive minded coach in Golden and looks to improve the owes of the offense that plagued them a lot this year and dropped them from being nationally ranked 13 to start the season to unranked to end it finishing the season 7-5 and 5-3 in the ACC.

Miami does have one game to play and that is verse Notre Dame in the Hyundai Sun Bowl December 31st. Golden will NOT be coaching that game.

We at Novembers Children, especially Lucky and me, wish Al Golden the best with Miami! Bring us back, Coach!

Cam The Heisman



Did you really think this wouldn't be the story book finish? Did you think because there were allegations out there about Cam being paid to go to Auburn would stop Cam from winning? If you thought those two things you most likely never understand a sport and usually play computer games in the basement of your moms home.

Congratulations to Cam Newton, The Quarterback of Auburn University in not only winning the Heisman Trophy but for standing up and not allowing the world wind that is sports media take away from his performance on the field for his team.

People will say "Hey, does it matter? They will take it away from him like they did Reggie Bush." Two different stories. One story, that of Bush, was he was scared to speak. He held up until two years later before speaking and it was because he KNEW he did something wrong. This story features a man who wasn't afraid to speak because he was telling the TRUTH. Understand this ladies and gentlemen, Cam Newton is a win away from going from back up QB to Tim Tebow at Florida, to not being noticed when this years season began to the medias new favorite back cover story to a Heisman winner and possibly a national title winner.

We here at Novembers Children are #TeamNewton. Congrats Cam, now go beat Oregon!

Johnnies Get Rammed



You stood and watched. Whether in the comfort of your home, work or the arena, you stood there and watched. Exactly what did you watch? St. Johns take full control of a basketball game....for ONE half. What did you see after? St. Johns give up not ONE but TWO 16-0 runs to Fordham as well as give up TWO 10+ point leads one of which was a 21 point lead.

Do you see what I have in capital letters? Digest those deep into your brain. Then put Fordham hitting ELEVEN of it's three pointers with those things. Add in the fact that St. Johns scored FIFTY points in the paint and Dwight Hardy had THIRTY points alone and still couldn't get the win and you get.... sadness. Watching Fordham fans rush the court....anger. Knowing this St. Johns team isn't playing the way they should...Frustration.

It's the hardest thing when you see a team you where it's name and pride on your sleeve go down like this. Two straight loses against A10 Conference teams who are the bottom of the barrel in that conference. Right now they are looking like they should be Big East teams.

Music Update:

What's Good?
Melanie Fiona is back in the swing of things with a great slow& mellow song. Her is album due early 2011 and this song will be featured on a film produce by the biggest African American male basher in black America....Yea you figure it out.

Meyer Retires




Florida Gators Head Coach, Urban Meyer has stepped down from his position today stating he wanted more time with his family as well as enjoy his life off the field some more.

Last year after a game verse Alabama, Meyer was hospitalized with chest pains and many thought he would retire then but he did not and came back this past season but it was a disappointing one to say the least. 7-5 overall and 4-4 in SEC play.

"The decision to step down was a difficult one," Meyer said. "But, after spending more than two decades motivating and celebrating the young men I've been so proud to coach, I relish the opportunity to cheer for my three terrific kids as they compete in their own respective sports."

Press conference will be held today at 6pm on ESPN.

We at Novembers Children wish Coach Meyer and his family all the best.
