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.
