FyoozD Culture Inc.

Hello and Thank you for stopping by my blog. My name is Natassja, and I'm currently a fashion design student at IADT in Sacramento. I decided to start a blog so that I can share with you my own personal journey through the world of the fashion industry. But then I was thinking WAIT! there is another part of me that helped shape who I am today, and that's been the desire to want to help, bring unity with all people, and encouragement. So in my quest to finding a spot in the fashion industry, I also want to bring peace and love to everyone that visits. May you find something that feeds your fashion craving, and also something that feeds your mental hunger.

I have a confession to make
I am obsessed with the TV show True Blood! If you want to know what I been doing for the pass week or so I've been glamoured into watching the whole seasons of 2 and 3. Those that are True Blood fans would get the glamour part :)

So it would only make sense to me to create a post about my love for Vampires, Goth, and the dark side. I can be a oxymoron sometimes in the way that I think, ugly can be beautiful, creepy can be cute, bad can be good... You get where I'm going.

The amazing thing about fashion is having fun mixing these elements with the opposite. Like creating your own Ying and Yang, but with clothes. Showing a little of your DARK SIDE can come off as myterious, intriguing, and sexy. We don't want to over do it or you may come off as a totally emo/gothic chick.

Cast of True Blood

Suggested Colors to Use:
Crimson Red/Blood Red
Royal Purple
Teal Blue

Key Players in the Gothic World:
 Long Black Coats
Silver Jewelery
 Band T-shirts
 Large Buckle or Lace-up Boots
Pick one or two from above and add some feminine pieces to tone it down




Desdemona Skirt

Now that you have some inspiration, how would you incorporate a little goth into your wardrobe?

I would love to see pictures of how you added gothic pieces to your outfit. please send photes to:

And I'll post your photo up for others to see and to get inspired.

Good author to check out for vampire novels is Ann Rice

Icon FlashBack: Dorothy Dandridge

I remember growing up and being totally taken back by the beautiful Ms. Dorothy Dandridge. My grandparents are the ones that introduced me to her when I was in first grade. I remember seeing her face in the Essence magazine, and I remember keeping that page to hold onto so I could always look back and vision her still being alive.

WOW!! She was Gorgeous

Dorothy Dandridge was taken way before her time, her and Marlyn Monroe are two of my favorite women from the past. Its crazy because both of their life's kinda pattern themselves. Two amazingly beautiful women with so much inner tumor, and both left us way to early.

She is most famous for her role in Carmen Jones, in which she became the first African American women to ever be nominated for an Academy Award for best actress. Unfortunately she didn't win due to heavy racial issues back in those times (the movie was made in 1954). But to many people she had won, and because of her memorable role as Carmen Jones she will never be forgotten.

Fun for ONe: A guide to having fun with the most beautiful person in the world: YOU

With a million and one things going on in our life's, working or trying to find work, school, projects, networking, facebook, youtube, friends, and family it can be hard to even imagine having any time for yourself.

With the pressure of feeling like you have to be at every event, party, night out with the girls, hanging with your boo, and answering everyone's twit, email, update etc. We often feel bad that we want to just be with ourselves.


Because everyone of us deserves and need some me time. How could we grow, learn about ourselves, and tap into our deeper conscious with out taking ourselves on a little date every now and then. Now we take our boyfriend/girlfriend on dates to learn about them in different settings, we take our friends to new places to discover new treasures. So wouldn't it be just as cool to take yourself somewhere new and exciting, to try a new dish, to help at a shelter?

Well in a quest of learning more about myself I want to share with you some ideas that you can enjoy all by your beautiful self. Once a week I will give you a new gem to discover, and if you lovely ladies have any ideas, suggestions, thoughts, are what to share some of your fun with one please do

                    Some of my fun for one ideas are coming from this book:

                Oh, Solo Mia! The Hip Chick's Guide to Fun for One

First Sole Mission
Cooking Class for One
"My favorite thing to make for dinner is reservations".
Julia Child

If you live in midtown or downtown in any city the joys of take out are right at your fingertips. If your like me you probably have every menu stuck on your refrigerator and most of them on speed dial. In a world where everything is fast, fast food is no exception.

But every lady deserves to have at least one dish that she would blow even her grandmother out of the water.

So why not pick up a few lessons and take a cooking class ( and no I'm not talking about from the food network).

For my locals:

They offer a wide variety of different types of cooking courses & a lot of them are very cost friendly

A great place that supports natural healthy living. They support organic family farms and small producers of high quality food.

Whole Foods Market
The culinary center offers a variety of cooking classes at affordable prices. Most classes are about $25-45 and they are well worth every Penny. They have different types of classes and informational sessions throughout the month.

For other ideas:
  • Check out bulletin boards at local bakeries, health food stores, and grocery stores for free or inexpensive classes
  • Ask your culinary-savvy friends and family for some good recipes. Or spend a day in their kitchen watching the masters at work.
  • Taste of America have great information on a variety of culinary subjects Taste of American
  • Use Culinary Net to search for a cooking class near you Culinary Net

Ok Ladies what dish would you like to be a champ at making?
