genius level talent.


"We all have genius level talent, we just have to find out what you're genius at and apply ourselves in a way that supports that genius. First recognize that genius, then believe in it. You avoid all the outside noise. People put their fears and their insecurities on you so you cant reach your full potential. Don't let all the outside things get in the way. -JayZ

A few weeks back I was asked to call into New Orlean's radio station WBOK to discuss Fall trends on their morning show. I spoke about peplum tops being a huge trend this season and seeing it reappear on the runway during NY fashion week. I also spoke about Fall 2012 colors being deep purples and cobalt blue. I basically put together an outfit that incorporated both the peplum trend and cobalt blue. The blue high waisted pants are from iheartposhshoppe and are super comfortable. Every outfit post I do I have to make sure the background that is going to be in my photos match the feel of the outfit. There was a tunnel near the George Washington Bridge that had a ton of graffiti in it and thought the different colors would bring out the outfit more. Saturday night I went to Jay-Z's 8th show at Barclay Stadium. I was definitely in a drought, being less inspired by the day until I saw him perform. It could have been the lyrics and choice of songs he rapped, the speeches he gave all his fans, the thought that despite his setbacks he now has his own arena even though it was a 10 year process. It sometimes takes seeing others accomplishments and them reminding you that you're just as talented in your own craft. He definitely gave me life again that night. The quote above is word for word what he said during the show.

I love this look and I'm with you. I attended his 3rd show at Barclay and his words were extremely encouraging even though the lines are repetitive from show to show.
