Unicorn Shawty On…..Dating (Part 1)


Before moving to Oakland, I was the girl who dressed up to go EVERYwhere. I dressed up to go to the Grocery store, to run errands, even sometimes to just chill in the house (just in case I got a call to hang outside the house. My motto was, “stay ready and you don’t have to get ready”. I lived by it.

Made In A Chicago Hood…



Chicago is a very cool place in my book. Visually the city eye catching, just beautiful to me. I have family there, and the restaurants are bomb. Plus, Kanye is from there and y’all know how I feel about Kanye. Anyway, I found out about this brand a couple years ago because I kept randomly seeing some of my Atlanta homies rocking these tie dye hoodies that said “Dope Boy Magic” on them.

Beyonce x TopShop…..How Sway?


I knew there was a reason that Beyonce was wearing all that TopShop, she wasn’t doing it just for fun. So today all over my timeline on IG the announcement of her collaboration with them dropped.

Kith NYC Is Going To Make My Bank Account Cry…


I was minding my business at work today when I got a mention from my very fly friend @Msquar_D. He gave me a link to the KithNYC store for their “Us” crew neck collection coming out tomorrow. For anyone who pays attention to my blog (or me in general) they KNOW I love a crew neck. Why would he do this to me? Why did I click the link? French Terry cotton, raglan sleeves!?! WHY?! I want all three colors and the Calvin Klein underwear. This is so unfair! Look for yourselves. Thanks Mark. My account now hates you… But my closet loves you.
