I'm the one to watch

"Know who you are and know it's enough."

Lets discuss my favorite finds. First off, these thigh high cut out heels. I've been fiend out for a pair and finally got them. Secondly, this Egyptian Queen Nefertiti brooch I found here in an Uptown thrift store. I not only found a gold one but a gold and black one too. Hands down my favorite thrift find to this day. This is off topic but my dream now is to move to Lebanon for 6 months and work with Elie Saab. We can all dream right? These shoes just remind me of how I need to step my shoe game up daily. Possibly going to start buying stripper shoes again. Someone stop me. Sike, no one can stop me.

Wearing: black cutout dress (similar); black blazer (similar), thrift Egyptian Queen Nefertiti Brooch, vintage earrings

Double Denim

Fake hair, don't care. My sister Alya is a hair stylist so it's fun to experiment sometimes. Felt like doing double denim. So let me tell you guys on a shop I came across that has discount clothing. Every piece is basically $16.00 and I'm not lying. The online shop is called Heavenly Couture and I got this denim crop hoodie jacket. I was in The New York Post today. My sister was at the corner store bodega on my block and tells me to come around the corner. I turn the street and she's standing there holding up the paper of all of us from Gabi's photo shoot. So what did I do? Bought 12 of them haha. J/k, I only bought 4.

Wearing: ASOS 90's crop top, Heavenly Couture denim hoodie, vintage high waisted shorts (similar), silver pointy pumps

Delicate Details

If anyone pays attention to detail it's me and my perfectionist ways. I have this issue where I love matching my bras and panties so I figured it's easier to just get a set pair. I got a hold of Addition Elle's embroidered balconet bra and bottoms. The stitching is absolutely stunning. The black makes the palette of purples really pop. Knowing me, I'd probably wear this bra as an actual top outside. Super cute for summer lingerie. The black makes it sexy but the flowers keep it summery!
Featuring: Addition Elle Balconet Bra and Addition Elle

The Realness

"Everyone sees what you appear to be, few experience what you really are." -Niccolò Machiavelli

Still in my black and white phase with this Manon Baptiste color block top from Navabi. This time I really felt like adding some color with these pink drop triangle earrings. Can we discuss this clear clutch I found? I call it my money bag. haha. Really in love with clear clothes and accessories. I chose to take a few pics with the shirtWhenever I decide to take pictures to put on my blog, the location is really key. I want my surroundings to really compliment my outfit. I was thinking of a way to add more color to this outfit so snapped some pictures in front of a fill in by graffiti artist Klaer.

Spring Breakers Forever

"Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning." -Dennis Waitley

Like I said in the previous post, here is the arrival of the final SwimSuitsForAll pictures. Really love how all of these came out. I'll be sure to do a post tomorrow with the final product shots. For those who have been under a rock, Gabi's capsule collection is finally here and available to purchase. I heard it's selling out in certain sizes fast so you better get on it! Her theme for this shoot was the movie Spring Breakers. My favorite part was wearing pastel pink ski masks with unicorns on them while holding giant water guns. haha! Her line is such a hit and I couldn't be happier for her. It's been featured so far in a ton of publications such as Glamour Magazine, MTV, and Refinery 29! Be sure to buy your favorite piece at SwimSuitsForAll!

From Negative to Positive

"I'm never at my worst because even at my lowest, its a learning experience. It's something that i'll bounce ideas off. I can take negatives and flip them to positives at all times." -Kanye West

I've always been a big fan of activewear as high fashion. I got these bottoms from Addition Elle while I was in Canada and decided to cut them into little shorts which are perfect for Spring because they're in trend. Altering clothes to fit your body is always the way to go. These plus size bottoms are drawstring so it's really good for different body shapes. Countless times I've told you I'm in love of black and white so it's not a shock that I've been wearing it constantly. I had a shoot today with Refinery 29 which was super fun. Pictures will be up June 1st so I'll keep you guys posted! I don't think I'll ever stop wearing statement sunglasses. Ever since I cut my hair, I've been into wearing brolic earrings and a lot of eyewear for some reason.

Wearing: Addition Elle activewear bottoms, boohoo long sleeve crop top, wing sunglasses, ASOS gold hoop earrings

Her Pistol Go

"Be yourself, not your idea of what you think somebody else's idea of yourself should be."

Monochromatic. One of my favorite ways to dress. I really love all white. For the longest time I use to think it wasn't that flattering on me but really have fallen in love with it over the years. My moto jacket is from Mynt 1792 and is basically everything. The gold zippers and belted sides gave me life. I paired the moto jacket with an ASOS 90's crop top and a bodycon skirt. Can we discuss these heels for a second? I'm always afraid I'm going to dirty white shoes but desperately needed these platforms with the teal transparent heel. I wore these construction glasses two years ago but busted them back out to go with these heels. Hope everyone has a lovely May! Photo credit thanks to Kellie Brown!
