We had some beautiful weather over the week here in Oakland, CA. I got to spend sometime outside by the pool, walked to the farmers Market, and get some much needed Vitamin D in my life. As I was spending this much needed time outside I looked down at my feet and thought two things.

Locally Fresh: Porsche W.

I am a self proclaimed introvert until I have some Hennessy. Which is why on a sunny Sunday afternoon I saw Porsche while turning up at a day party and was able to talk to a then stranger. Her style was magnetic, you could tell just by looking at her that getting dressed for her was effortless. So of course she had to be the next installment in my “Locally Fresh” series. This time around I used “Ralph” and shot Porsche myself. I was also able to ask her some questions and talk style for a bit. Check out the interview below and get to know this “Chic Little Hippie” better.

I have A LOT of sisters. Enough to have our own starting lineup in a soccer match. With that being said we all have very distinct styles. Which is great because I always pull inspiration for my own outfits and style from people I know and my surroundings. So it’s only right that I tap one of them to talk about their perspective on style and trends. This go ’round we have Sigourney Bennett aka Siggi B (for short).
What I enjoy about Siggi’s style is that she likes to make dressing look easy, classic, and funky at the same time. Along with that she knows her shoes! Homegirl can tell you anything that you want to know about a dope heel and she rocks them well. However being a California girl she knows how to dress down with chucks and still stay fresh. She provided me with her top five shoes for the season and some style advice on how she would rock them. Check it out!

Follow Rules….For What?

20140724-202108-73268142.jpg

I was doing my daily peruse through My Tumblr and came across this photo. I liked it. Reblogged it. And kept it moving. Then a lightbulb went off in my head. I started thinking about all the rules that people try to put on others when it comes to personal style. It’s called PERSONAL style for a reason. It’s yours, and what you do with it is your business. Anyway, one so called rule that annoys me is this not repeating outfits rule. The hell!? Most people must be ballin in these streets but for this full time student/employee/entrepreneur that’s not an option. I’ll repeat and remix something several times and don’t be surprised if you see it on Instagram several times as well. Continue reading

Mr. West is the latest baddie to grace the cover of one of my favorite publications. Shot by Patrick Demachelier, styled by Kanye. This spread feeds so deeply into my menswear loving side. All the looks are simple but super clean, fitted in the right places and PERFECT layering. I would wear every single look in this shoot and may try to copy some of these for the fall. Check out my favorites below and Shmoney dance over to  GQ.com for the full spread. Continue reading
