Unicorn Shawty On…..Dating (Part 1)

IMG_6680

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.

 Since moving, a lot has changed.**Enter lazy ass Maryam**.

Made In A Chicago Hood…

IMG_5257

 

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. I thought they were dope and EVERY time I tried to get one, they would be sold out.

You Should Know About: Pin Trill

IMG_4145.JPG

 

Accessories are just as important as your ensemble. They are like the Lawrys seasoning to your outfit. They complete it, they are necessary, and they should be unique. Instagram is probably my favorite social networking site. I am highly visual about everything so it totally serves great purpose for me. Any way this post is not about my love for instagram, however I did discover the brand I am posting about today on there.

Beyonce x TopShop…..How Sway?

IMG_4129.JPG

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. I understood it up until the point when I found out it was going to be an Athletic/streetwear situation. And now…..I don’t get that at all.Like how Sway?  Yeah Beyonce can kill a stage in heels for 2+ hours without missing a beat, However, that’s not her bag. I don’t see how this conclusion was made.

Boy do I love cool sh*t. Like really love it, especially when I can identify with the vibe and the message. Thanks to my good friend @iso14below over at iso14below.com I have found a mag that I know is going to super pop.  10 year design veterans in the fashion industry Elizabeth and Ashta are on a mission to empower the progressive and stylish “tomboy”. By offering a magazine that honors that spirit and style for women.

Kith NYC Is Going To Make My Bank Account Cry…

20140228-203243.jpg

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.

Fun Night Out: Pusha T x 2 Chainz….

20140220-225628.jpg

Going to concerts is one of my favorite activities. I really enjoy live music because I feel like you really get an understanding of the artists work and interpretation of the music. So to kick off my 2014 concert season I got to see none other than Pusha T and 2 Chainz. Both of these artists I am a fan of for two different reasons, Pusha T is partly responsible for Play Cloths and is 1/2 of the Clipse and 2 Chainz is from my second home, a foodie, and an all around good time.

Anyway I feel like for hip hop concerts your attire should be inspired by the event. Don’t wear club dresses to rap concerts. You are there to have a good time, jump around and dance. So I like to wear sneakers and sweatshirts (that’s a constant in my life but I digress) If the show is coming to your hood…GO! The show was really good and well executed. Not a milllion people on stage, good story telling and lighting and fun! You can check the tour schedule HERE. Peep some shots below thumbs up to @Katia for the amazing pics!

Supreme’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collection Is on The Way…

20140217-101512.jpg

I’m a fan of Supreme, especially when they collaborate with Champion. (As you have seen in earlier posts.) That used to be the only thing I checked for….until now. I took a look at their look book for their incoming Spring/Summer collection and there were more than a few things I felt like I had to have. In my ever evolving collection of crews and sweats this was probably the last thing I needed to see, but some of these looks WILL be copped. Which means there will be a lot of stalking Supreme.com because stuff sells out SO fast. So fast that when their last collaboration with Champion came out I immediately stopped walking my dog ran to my house and accidentally left my dog outside the front door (sorry Prince mommy loves you) Anyway here are my favorites from the look book.

I am a fan of BBC. I always have been. And if you have been reading this blog long enough. You know that crew neck sweat shirts and hoodies are my thannnnnnng. You will always seem them on here as long as this blog exists. Anyway Billionaire Boys Club have added another branch to the brand with Billionaire Girls Club. You would think with how long BBC has been around this would have happened sooner. However I’m not complaining. I think it’s cute and simple. That price tag….$160……… Not so much. I still want all three though. If you are interested in copping. These hoodies are available on bbcicecream.com and at the New York flagship store. If you do get yourself one pick me up these three……or nah? #thanksinadvance
