AFTER Baby Phat Split, Kimora Grants Girl's Wish

There's a little news aggregator on the side of the page here. Most the stuff has been from blogs and it doesn't always update as often as I would like. So, I sometimes just glance at it out of habit, but not really with the expectation of seeing something new. But, today something caught my eye and I'm so glad that it did. The headline read, "Wish Granted: Local Girl..." and I knew it was gonna be something good. I was right. :)

It was a story on the Hattiesburg-American's website about a little 8 year old Mississippi girl, suffering from a horribly debilitating disease, whose greatest wish is to be a model. And, guess who came to the rescue to make it happen? Ellen Ciurczak writes:

Taal Moseley, 8, a third-grader at Woodley Elementary School in Hattiesburg, had the wish of a lifetime granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

"I wanted to be a model. I got my wish granted," said Moseley, while flipping through a photo book of her modeling experience.

The foundation, which helps children with life-threatening medical conditions, sent Moseley to Hollywood to meet fashion mogul and reality TV star Kimora Lee Simmons.

Moseley, and fellow Make-A-Wish recipient Meg Wasley of Holly Springs, N.C., walked the runway in Baby Phat outfits at a birthday party for Simmons' daughter, Aoki.
I don't know what the process was. I don't know if Taal specifically wanted to meet Kimora or if Make-A-Wish called to ask her if she'd do this for the girl, but what a selfless act either way? Just awesome. Kimora could have told them no and considering what we all know now about the drama that was underway with Kellwood Company, it makes it even more spectacular! I remember her warmly tweeting about this experience with Taal and it makes me admire her even more. She could have easily called it off, but like more than a true professional...like a mother, like a humanitarian, she decided that a sick little girl's wish was more important.

Be sure to read the whole article and remember, we don't roll with Baby Phat anymore. No respect? No dollars. Don't let the warm fuzzies in this article fool you. This was pre-f*ck Kellwood. Check out KLS.com to find a number of ways to support Kimora and then head over to her Twitter page to let her know how great you think she is for doing this for Taal! --Sugar

WHAT Are You Looking For?!

When, I checked the stats earlier today, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw listing after listing after listing in the pageloads with "Kellwood Company" and "Morgan, Lewis, Bockius". Oh yeah, pageloads are different from the "visits". Pageloads give a better idea of what a person has been looking at while visiting a website and both Kellwood and those worms at Morgan Lewis have been crawling all over this blog today. Why? What are you looking for?

And, I saw that ridiculously desperate tweet you sent at the Baby Phat twitter page and it proves that you dummies screwed up when you dismissed Kimora as an after-thought. Baby Phat has been around for more than a decade and you damn fools are begging for customers? Know why you're begging for customers for a well-established brand? Because you threw the baby out with the bathwater. I don't know what happened behind closed doors between you dummies and Kimora, but it's a safe bet that with the sorry way you handled this, it was all you. And, you're paying for it dearly, literally, because of it.

The real customer base is turning away from you as the word spreads. Giving you a big ole fat f*ck you. My sentiments exactly. No respect? No dollars. Don't buy any apparel from them. Nothing.
If you want to support, Kimora, visit her website KLS.com. Fragrances always make an excellent holiday gift. :) The song below is dedicated to Kellwood and Morgan Lewis for today's action here at this lowly little blog. --Sugar
