It’s not who you’re wearing, it’s how you wear it. I’m a strong believer in acting your wage. My lovely father, (the most brilliant man that I know) always say to me “cut your coat according to your cloth.” I’m proud that I shop cheaply and I thrift because I am saving for something greater than me. A legacy. A future. I believe that discipline is choosing between what you want and what you need and learning that there is a greater joy in meticulously creating the life you desire. One day I’ll be able to buy louboutins and YSLs until then I can make it work with the little that I have and still make it look fabulous. I am wearing American Apparel off the shoulder crop top. Eden Sky’s skirt and Forever 21 Suede shoes. My lovely friend temi braided my hair (If you are in Los Angeles hit her up).
