I swear I rant and rave about this weekly on twitter. The powers that be over at sneaker companies like Nike, need to realize that not all women want shoes that are Pink or Purple or some other stereotypical color like powder blue. Personally I steer clear of shoes that color unless they are extremely dope and a must have. Someone must have been listening to me. Continue reading
If you have been stalking Supreme’s site for these shoes, your lucky day is upon just a few hours away. Tomorrow (Oct 22) You can cop the highly thirsted after Air Force collaboration. Continue reading
Happy Birthday to me! Who knew I could have two birthdays?! (my legit one is in January) Today a year ago I decided to get back into doing what I love and start blogging. I must say it is one of the best choices I’ve made this year. I love fashion and love people even more. To be able to write about my friends, people I admire, things I love (and not so much) has enabled me to flex creatively and learn about my strengths and bring them out in others. Having this blog has encouraged me to take risks and put myself out there is a way that I was not used to or comfortable with. To me this is not just another fashion blog, to me it’s something that I want you to love and appreciate and become something that you feel is yours as much as it is mine. Discipline is something that is a challenge for me sometimes, so being able to commit and stay consistent just means more for everyone ( and proof to myself that I am not a world class procrastinator.) Thank you to all my friends, Family, and STRANGERS. Who retweet, like, re post , comment and come up to me in the streets to show love. It really means a lot to me. I will continue to commit to you and create. Thank you. And have some Hennessy for me today!

I like to share cool stuff even if I’m unable to get it for myself. Take these Nike Blazers for example, they drop tomorrow (October 11) and will not come in my size (haters). Continue reading
Fashion week is underway folks. Which means we are looking ahead at what Spring 2015 has to offer us. Fashion is so fast, sometimes it can be hard to keep up with what season we are looking at. I mean I am still trying to finalize my Fall and Winter looks (operation dress like Kanye). Anyway I have been taking a look at the shows and gathering my thoughts and feelings. So far so good I would say. Nothing I that wanted to write home about with the exception of a few. Case in point Alexander Wang. With a looming collaboration with H&M dropping soon, he made sure that Fashion Week was not left off the agenda.
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).
Summer is on and poppin and I am loving it. Besides the Fall; Summer is runner up for my favorite season. It’s all about dressing for the temperature, having fun, and drinking in public!(kidding but not) Anyway, one of my favorite local designers Marshal Nash just dropped their summer collection which makes looking sexy and staying cool extra easy.
