Because Black Is Still The New Black.

Hello guys, 

                        This is a post on what I wore to JOYRICH first collaboration with iconic lifestyle brand, Playboy.

The collection captures the brash, unapologetic attitude of Joyrich, while captivating consumers with the charm and allure that Playboy is known for. I decided to go for a comfortable fit and by comfortable I mean all black. I’m wearing American Apparel from Head to Pants and shoes from Lolashoetique. Drop me a message. I want to get to know every single one of you.

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK.

Hello guys,

I know I promised plethora of pictures from NYFW but truly I couldn’t get more than six pictures. New York was too exhilarating. I was busy chasing subways, cabs, photographers. Running late to shows, switching from heels to flats and back to heels. It was exhausting but I had the time of my life. I promise to have better pictures during spring fashion week. I truly apologize. Hope you guys are having a lovely weekend. I’m in Vegas for a quick trip. I’ll update the blog when I get back. Thanks to my best friend (http://girlcameracity.tumblr.com) for capturing some images. Head over to her blog for more pics.

When I met You In The Summer

Hello guys,

      I want to apologize for going M.I.A with outfit posts although I’ve been answering questions. As you guys know I recently got a new car and few days ago I was involved in an awful car crash. I’m fine and everything is okay. I’m very happy that my health is intact but dealing with the aftermath of an accident isn’t fun and very time consuming. Other than that little collision (all pun intended) Life is great right now!! Everything is falling into place and I’ll be in NYC for fashion week, so if any of my followers want to meet up please message me. In any rate, I wore this outfit last week just casually. I’m wearing my favorite hat, topshop statement necklace, Top and bottom by Eden_sky and shoes by misguided. I truly enjoy answering all you guys questions, they keep me entertained.  Thank you for your patience. Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend guys.

Upclose & Personal

 I know, I know.. I have never done anything like this before. Lately, I’m in love with black and white shoots. The amazing Dan (Best photographer ever, seriously he is amazing) and I decided to shoot something fun in lieu of our usual lifestyle/outfit shoots. I wanted to go for a “I borrowed my boyfriend T shirt look”. I’m wearing an American Apparel oxford shirt and Victoria Secret underwear. Like any other girl, I battle with loving my body. One moment I feel too skinny, the next too fat. Especially this year.. it seemed I was always complaining about this or that. So I started working out more (Hiking to be precise). Its quite cathartic. I’m Learning to love my body because it is a temple. I’m learning to fuel it, nourish it, respect it and appreciate it. I woke up that particular morning with so much confidence and zest, looked in the mirror and said “YAASSS, my body is to die for”. I had so much fun on set. Hope you guys enjoy the photos. Remember, "It doesn’t matter if it’s a relationship, a lifestyle, or a job. If it doesn’t make you happy let it go.“

A Day in Beverly Hills

Good Afternoon, Everyone! Hope you’re enjoying your week. As you might already know, my staple pieces are a fitted blazer and boyfriend jeans.You can never have too many of them. I love the way boyfriend jeans fits, the comfort, the room to breathe especially since its quite hot. I’m wearing a forever21 blazer & boyfriend jeans, American Apparel grey  t-shirt and pearl necklace from EdenSky. These pictures were taken on rodeo drive. I had a great time playing tourist on rodeo and pretending I own all the expensive cars. I just want to remind you guys to always surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers, and the thinkers, but most of all surround yourself with those who see greatness within you, even when you don’t see it within yourself. Stay Thirsty my friends.. Stay thirsty..

DREAM BABY, DREAM

 

Hi guys, I just wanted to share this very simple look with you that I’m wearing to the Ladygunn Magazine #9 Launch Party. Although, I no longer work for American Apparel it seems my whole closet is still full of AA clothing. As awful and unprofessional the company is, I must say I’ll always love the clothes. It’s simple, affordable and (albeit, poorly executed) the motto “made in Los Angeles” creates jobs for plethora of people in the city. I’m wearing their Swim top with ponte skirt finished off with pointy leopard heels from LolaShoetique. On a completely different topic: Everyone please pay attention to what’s going on in Gaza.. Its heartbreaking and unjust.  It’s not enough to be compassionate, we must act. Be aware and get involve. Petition, spread knowledge and ask our government to intervene. Lets continue to pray for the people of Gaza.

Happy Saturday guys..  Whilst every other blogger is at Swim Week, Im stuck in Los Angeles. Not to worry I’ll be in New York soon for fashion week. I’m super excited. In any rate, I’ve had this H&M floral dress sitting in my closet for over 6 months and I finally had an opportunity to wear it this weekend. LA Travel magazine had their Summer Issue Launch Party at the W Hollywood! LA Travel Magazine is a must-read for anyone looking for luxury travel destinations in Southern California and across the globe. The magazine is filled with endless pages of beautiful places to visit, eat and explore!

MILD SOPHISTICATION

Hello lovelies, 

                         First, I want to thank you guys for following me and checking out my blog. I truly appreciate it. I cannot believe its almost August! This year thus far has been such a roller coaster. I’m finally learning how to ride the waves of living in Los Angeles. This city would chew you up and then spit you out but my God, where else would I rather live? Perhaps one day in Europe (with the man of my dreams, but I digress) but for now this is home. Learning to enjoy the good, the bad and the ugly. I’m learning to compartmentalize my emotions. I’m a sagittarius, as you can imagine this is quite difficult. As an adult, I’m teaching myself how to deal with different emotions as they come, I’m learning to acknowledge them, own them and toss them aside, because I choose to live a life of quality. 

       I’m wearing Topshop peplum top, American Apparel leather skirt and sandal heels from Zara. Please feel free to ask me questions.

RODEO DRIVE X VESPA / 7.13.14

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, 

                         So, my best friend Yonni bought a new Vespa and I think I’m more obsess with it than he is. I nagged long enough and he let me borrowed it, so I decided to take it to Rodeo drive and do an impromptu photo shoot. Needless to say, the security people over there are a pain in the ass. They didn’t allow photography but Tatsu is just that awesome, we still got these few amazing shots! I’m wearing American Apparel Sports bra layered with my good friend Phlobymariah fishnet top, American Apparel easy Jeans and my Missguided platform heels (Ive decided Im going to wear them for the rest of my life. Dont try to convince me otherwise).

PS: I really dont know what to do with my life now that the world Cup is over. I need a new hobby. Any ideas?

SUMMER BRAIDS X SUNFLOWERS 7.10.14

Hi there lovelies, 

                            My signature hair style unfailingly every summer is box braids. I love them! They are quite stylish and easy to maintain. Frankly, when it comes to hair, I’m the laziest girl in the world, sometimes I just want to be bald. Ok, I went off tangent like usual.. Pardon me, I’ll keep this post short. I’m wearing American Apparel top and skirt and platform heels from misguided (Must be my new favorite online store)
