The iconic Stan Smith Adidas is getting a bit of a high fashion makeover. Adidas has teamed up with luxury department stores Barneys, Colette, and Dover street market to release an even more scaled down version of the shoe. I have always been a fan of the Stan Smiths. I had a green tag pair that I ran into the ground, and I miss them. I have my eye on the Barneys pair for sure. They drop September 10th, if you want them you can stalk Adidas HERE. You are welcome in advance. 🙂

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.

Super Saturday: Adventures in San Francisco!

20140119-154028.jpg

I live in Oakland, which is a hop, skip, and a jump away from San Francisco. So on Saturday I decided to hit up some boutiques that I have on a running lonnnnnng list of places I wanted to check out. You can also check out a real deal account of what the day was like at www.PapiDrinksWine.Tumblr.com.

My first stop was a mens boutique called Nomads located on 556 Hayes St in whats considered the Hayes Valley area. The store is a good size for a boutique intimate but enough room for you to move around and explore comfortably. Nomad carries a diverse selections of brands like Fred Perry, Oliver Spencer, and SLVDR. The price point was between $30-$150 (NOT BAD!)  Great joggers, denim, t-shirt and button down selection as well. I was for sure eyeballing some items for myself. The number one thing that caught my eye was this Sade t-shirt by the brand White Label Cartel. It was only $30 which is not bad for a unique tee that no one will have.

Next stop was totally not fashion related but just as fun. I stumbled upon this bar owned by two sisters dubbes just that “2 Sisters Bar & Books”. Stopped and had a glass of wine (or two) and chatted with the owners. Found out they had mixology classes on Monday you can find our more HERE. Check out their story and mission below!

Next up a couple stores down I stumbled across one of my absolute favorite furniture and interior design stores called Roomservice. Hollywood Regency style is luxe and funky at the same time. I want my ENTIRE house to be designed in this way. I definitely had a  fantasy sequence going on in my head as I browsed the store. One day my house will be totally decked out in stuff from here. (le sigh)

Also located on Hayes St. is a shoe store called Undefeated. This was perhaps the highlight of my day yesterday (besides the drinking). They carry New Balance, Adidas, Nike, Jordans etc. The staff was super cool and engaging, which I like when coming into a store (don’t stare me down and make me uncomfortable I’ll take my money and leave). Anyway my come up for the day was a pair of Jordan slate 10’s IN MY SIZE FOR REGULAR price. WIN-NING!!! Now I may be eating pesto tuna and crackers for lunch all week…..But I got them Jay’s THO! lol. That purchase was meant to be and I smooth walked up out of the store with them.

Over all it was a great day and it ended with me being tipsy with a new pair of shoes. Wiiiiiiiiiiin! I’m excited to hang out in San Francisco more. Holla!

 

OOTD: Mr.Carter Told Me To…..

I love going to concerts. Being able to hear an artists music love and enjoy it with people who are just as excited is a good time to me. So this week I had the opportunity to see my my favorite rappers (amongst other things) Jay-Z.

I was sooooooooo juiced. BEYOND. Anyway when I go to concerts I get inspired to tweak my style based on how the music makes me feel. So it was natural to wear all black, Jays, gold chains, and leather. Done, done, and done. I love that Hanes Wal Mart sweatsuit it’s so necessary best purchase of December for SURE. My turban was designed by good friend @ellavatahjones. I had a great time, I love screaming my favorite songs at the top of my lungs especially Jay-Z songs. All in all a good night. My 2013 concert season had been great.
