Hi’ya! It’s been a hectic Fashion week (as usual.) This is what I wore on Tuesday to attend a few shows. As i’ve said before I LOVE invading my dad’s closet, this blazer is his. Ya’ll know I love vintage.
Hi'ya! I've been enjoying summer and trying to get out of my shell. I had the opportunity to attend Afro Punk this year for the very first time. I really enjoyed myself. There was great music and style! I was also able to Eryka Badu perfrom *my life is complete* lol!
It's really tough to find someone to take my photos especially with different schedules. But i'm trying, haha! Today I hung out with my friend Grisell and just walked around the neighborhood, enjoying the beautiful weather.
I cannot believe it's almost time to say goodbye to 2017 and say hello to 2018!
Despite the conflicts in the world we've seen this past year, the sun continues to rise in the morning. As should we.
Accept and welcome all lessons this year had to offer and prepare for the ones the new year will present you with. In difficult times, remember to chose and walk in love. Choosing to focus on love and seeing the beauty in the world around us will increase positivity and attract good things. Remember to set your intentions for this new year. Count your blessings, express gratitude. Carry a smile.
The weather was absolutely beautiful today! Fall is creeping in right around the corner, and although I am not ready to let go of summer-- I am so excited!!
Today was a really great day for me. My friend Tanya is in town for a few days and I decided to take her to Harlem since she's never been. We did a bit of shopping at the african market (my favoriteeee) went to the Apollo and ate at this really good buffet style restaurant.
Now y'all know how much I love the 80's. Oversized double breasted blazers were a staple in the 80s. I saw this blazer at the goodwill and literally fell in love with it as soon as I saw it!
I took a mini vacation and went to Reading Pennsylvania again. I fell in love with Reading because it reminds me of the Dominican Republic. These 2 bodegas or should I say colmados (corner stores) were on my list to shoot. I fell in love with the bright colors and cool architecture, just like home.
On Wednesday was one of my closest friend's birthday and we decided to go on a weekend getaway to a friend's house in Reading, Pennsylvania. If you follow me on Instagram then you know how muchI love traveling. It's nice going on a mini vacation close to home.
Follow me on Instagram to see more pictures from the trip! :)
It's been a while since I last posted and a lot has happened. Thankfully, I have been working more on my styling and I am super excited to launch my styling portfolio! I also turned 21 last week. I am so thankful for another year of life. I am grateful for my friends and family. I am humbled by the presence of my ancestors who allow me to be a source of light in my everyday encounters.
Also, yesterday was my mom's birthday. So we decided to celebrate together and go out for brunch. I've always said that for my 21st birthday I wanted to dress in all white. The color white symbolizes purity, innocence, wholeness and completion. White is a color of protection and encouragement offering a sense of peace and calm, comfort and hope. Dressing in all white offers an inner cleansing and what better way to welcome a new year of life? xoloo
I teamed up with photographer Ben Kulo (click) for this amazing shoot.
I've been a huge fan of Shrimps since I was in high school. For their Fall/Winter 15 collection they showcased a pvc trench coat with a bright yellow fur collar and I thought to myself "I NEED TO GET MY HANDS ON ONE!" When I found this trench coat at a thrift store for $15, I immediately thought of this DIY project! I attached my orange fur collar from Boohoo and wallahhh-- my own version of Shrimps' beautiful trench coat.
After being at home for most of the week, my mom and I decided to head out into the cold weather and grab a very well needed hot coffee. Although we've barley had snow in NYC, I am already over it and looking forward to Spring. I must admit though, there's something very peaceful and beautiful about a snowstorm as absurd as that sounds.
You all know how much I love mixing prints and monochromatic dressing. As easy as it may look, monochromatic dressing does require some thought so that you don't look boring. Unless you are wearing a co-ord in which both pieces are the same shade-- try to play with textures. For example, I decided to wear this knit turtle neck with satin pants.
I decided to wear my silver sneakers because, well, I love the mix of color and also comfort has been super important to me lately.
