i don't need permission.


"I don't wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to work" -Pearl S. Buck

I've decided to make a quick trip to NY for literally one weekend. I'm crazy right? I'll be flying out December 16th. I didn't want to make this trip too long just because in January I have my photoshoot in L.A. with American Apparel, and then in February i'll be in NY again for fashion week. I'm very much a shoulder pad fiend. You'll rarely catch me without them. Most of you are probably wondering what I'm wearing on my head. It's called an agal. A lot of Arab men in the Middle East wear keffiyehs, which are giant pieces of cloth on their heads. The agal is used to secure the wrap to the head. I did a previous post with the actual keffiyeh a while back, you guys can see it HERE. This time I just wanted to use the agal. Also, I just want to say that I've been having crazy trouble with my eyes lately. I already have horrible eyesight but apparently my eyes don't produce enough tears and my doctor says it's a possibility that I'll only be able to wear my glasses from now on instead of my contacts because my contacts are damaging my eyes. That's why I haven't been taking blog pictures as often. I have my appointment tomorrow so hopefully I get some good news and can bust out my contacts again because these glasses are driving me insane!

I hope you can use your contacts again...Im thinking about geting some contacts, but contacts drive me CRAZY! I rather use my glasses he he.

Love the use of the agal? is super creative!

At first glance the agal looks like a hat! Very creative the way you flipped it and made it your own. The outfit is cute and the makeup looks flawless :)

I'm sorry to hear about your eyes, I wear contacts too and hate when I have to wear my glasses but on the plus side there are some VERY stylish glasses these days so fortunately if it comes down to wearing them more you can make it work and have fun with it...and stylishly so...keep ya head up!

As for this look I absolutely love it..I would wear that outfit for sure..While I love a red lip I also love how having a neutral lip on you really draws more focus to your eyes and bone structure...work it girly! The agal is creatively lovely!

Zari said...

I just started following you a few weeks ago, and I would like to say you blow my mind!
I'm really sorry about you eyes. I had to stop wearing contacts as much because my eyes started to reject them. I'm sure you'll find some great glasses!
and shoulder pads are amazing. I'm a fiend for them as well :)

I really like the colours in this outfit, the grey and black look really sharp together.

I'm the same way about glasses! I have TERRIBLE eyesight but pretty much always wear contacts bcci never see frames I like. Randomly last week I was at the eye dr and found a pair. I dunno if this would help but I tried on the unisex frames and they fit so much better than the womans. Good luck, I'm sure you'll find something you like :)

I literally let out a *GASP* when I was this!! Girl you nailed this! This look is incredible! I absolutely love it! Is that a jumpsuit or separates? LOVE! Your hair looks amazing and the agal is a splendid idea. I actually thought you had took your own hair and did that! haha WERK it BOO!! btw - I have had 4 eyes since 4th grade! Welcome to the club! haha I actually only wear my contacts on weekends. I sit in front of a computer all day during the week so I have to wear glasses. My contacts just get so dried out and irratating. Kiah
