Made In A Chicago Hood…
Runway to Gameday…
My style goal no matter what is to be fly and comfortable. Of course I want to look good, but I also don’t want to look awkward during photo ops because I don’t like something I’m wearing. I really enjoy adding a masculine edge into my wardrobe but still maintaining feminine elements.
So Necessary: Adidas Stan Smith
My big sister was a huge and still is huge a Adidas fan. I remember her wearing gazelles as a kid and wished that we had the same shoe size so I could wear hers to school. My older sister is the first person who instilled the importance of having a quality sneaker collection in my life. She had Stan Smiths in every color and will wear them with the flyest sweatsuits to school. So I have always had a love for them. However it’s really hard for me to keep white shoes clean so I have ran through several pairs of Stan Smiths. My favorite story about a pair of Smith’s that I had was when I was living in Atlanta and I was hanging out with my sister by Stankonia and Alex studios. Continue reading
Personal Style: Sweatpants are Always Appropriate…
I’m No Model Either Baby…
Every time I do a post or work with someone where I’m the subject of the photo shoot… I get slightly stressed out. I wanted to be a stylist because they work behind the scenes. I have just never been totally comfortable in front of the camera (still not). In this day and age of the personal style blogger. Sometimes it is necessary to be the subject, le sigh, and those days are the ones that are a challenge for me.
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.
It’s That Time of Year Again!: Supreme F/W 2014
Man oh man! Supreme dropping their Fall/Winter preview always makes my day. This year the hoodies are winning it for me. The only challenge with Supreme is that items sell out so fast, if you really want something you have to stalk the website for drops. Also there are no retocks, once it’s gone, it’s gone and you better holla at Ebay.
Altuzarra for Target is a Yes!
My Fall season wardrobe wise is about to be so poppin! The lookbook for the Altuzarra collaboration with Target dropped this week and I’m feeling it. For some reason it gives me the vibe of Kim K going on a job interview(which is awesome!). In other words I’m here for a lot of the pieces. When I get dressed I like to straddle the fence when it comes to my style. I either go for cool relaxed tomboy vibe or ultra sexy dressed up (sometimes I try a combo).
