Anna Wintour on Anna Wintour…

Who knew watching Anna Wintour answer 73 questions would be so fun?! Check out this cute video, and get a peek inside the Vogue Magazine offices.I feel like Anna is the distant Auntie whom I never get to see and never comes to family functions but my favorite. Shes so chic and classy.

Jam Of The Week…..

I have been a fan of Janelle Monae since I heard “Letting Go” on the “Purple Ribbin All Stars” compilation album. The musicality of her songs and the fact that she stays true to her creativity I truly admire. Plus shes great on stage and hella fine. This week she dropped a video for the song “Electric Lady” and I’m in love with it. I have been obsessing over this varsity jacket (that I’m afraid to share but may in another post) so when I saw Janelle wearing one in her video I knew it was a sign. It also has a college sorority feel to it and some of you know(or not) that I pledged in college so it totally tickled me. Anyway check out the video below its super cute and has cameos from TI, Joi, and choreographer Fatima (all three people I totally LOVE)

 

Throwback Thursday: My First Pro Styling Gig……

So we all start somewhere. The bottom is very real. I was living in Atlanta trying to make my dream work. I knew I loved fashion and I was hustling to make it happen. I used to hang out in Little 5 Points in East Atlanta a lot. It reminded me of Berkeley, CA just on a very, very small scale. Anyway I would hang out at Vinnie’s Styles and argue about how Jay-Z is the best rapper ever and talk fashion. They taught me so much about street wear and men’s fashion during those convos that has extremely contributed to the knowledge that I have developed today.

I’m not completely sure how this opportunity came about to style this video, but I know the staff at Vinnies’ (shout out to Shaq and Ski) believed in me and helped me so much with the prep. It’s funny to look at the video now because it looks so dated and the clothes were so basic. But it is all about the principle. Even with the job being hard, having no help, and getting paid next to nothing ( I actually lost money) I felt most like myself and the most at home. When you are doing what you love being tired from working is so fulfilling. We all had to start somewhere. This was part of my start….

 

 

On My Playlist: Kid Sister “Pro Nails”

This was and still is my jam. I was scrolling my timeline a couple days ago and Kid Sister popped up courtesy of my fave @iso14below (go read her blog HERE). Anyway it reminded me of how much I was into her single pro nails featuring vintage Kanye West. The video and song could arguably be before its time, because the song slaps! Her hair, nail art, sweat suit jackets, and leggings are still on trend today (errbody got something that is represented in that video) Check out the video and twerk a lil something.

Pay Homage to Young Fox: “I’ll Be” by Foxy Brown Ft Jay Z

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great time over the holidays and got what they wanted for Christmas! So happy to be back on my routine and blogging. Last weekend me and @papidrinkswine were drinking and watching Mtv Jams (a favorite activity) We discovered this Strawberry Colada flavored vodka and gave Hennessy a break. Anyway, one of my favorite songs/videos of all time came on, and as I’m watching it I realized that Foxy Brown’s look is back in style! The cut out dress, the dark lipstick all relevant, so it made me want to write a blog about it. It’s also throwback Thursday (not a fan) so its fitting. Check out the video below and some looks I found that will work in pulling this off.
