Buyer’s Blog: Kimmy Frye
DrJays.com/DJPremium.com buyer Kimmy Frye (featured in this month’s Essence magazine – check it out!)
I’m a huge fan of our nation’s First Family and by the look of the sales we had earlier this year on President Barack Obama tees, you are too! So I brainstormed to see if I could come up with anything DrJays.com has in common with the uber-popular first family:
1. Jay-Z and Rocawear
The Obamas: View this clip to see President Obama reference Jay-Z’s hit song from the Black Album, “Dirt Off Your Shoulder”.
Dr. Jays.com: We’re HUGE fans of Jay-Z, from his songs to his apparel! Every week we work hard to the sounds of our fave Jay-Z hits on “Jay-Z Fridays”. And of course we carry a wide assortment of the Rocawear brand in all categories. Here are some of our latest looks from Rocawear!
2. Beyoncé and Deréon
The Obamas: Michelle Obama and the girls were recently spotted at the I Am…Sasha Fierce Tour in Washington, DC. They commented that the whole family are big fans of Bey!

DrJays.com: In May we partnered up with Deréon to offer Beyoncé’s biggest fan tickets to fly to New York to see her opening show. You guys uploaded such great entries to show off your love for not only Bey, but also Deréon product!
I went to see the show and rocked my fave new tee from the hit song “Diva”. Check out the lyric tees we have available and wear it when she comes to a city near you:
The Obamas: Michelle has always been praised for spotlighting affordable fashions to the White House. Just last month Michelle Obama made the headlines for wearing a $10 tee to a luncheon with former first lady Nancy Reagan. She’s winning over the hearts of recessionistas across the globe!

DrJays.com: We’ve also been making adjustments to our assortment to accommodate our Recessionista customers! Our Basic Essentials department has really been growing quickly to address the need for affordable fashion. Check out these chic budget-friendly styles:
Okay, so it’s a bit of a stretch. We’re not creating world peace and handing out bailouts like our fabulous First Family BUT when it comes to entertainment and fashion I think we’re right on par!
