It was the peak of the disco era and the early beginnings of hip hop. I decided to pay homage to the 80s music scene with this bomb ass Louis Feraud jacket… The cinched in waste and the over exaggerated sleeves makes this jacket perfection.  photo DSC_0111-22_zps9aef48b3.jpg  photo DSC_0083_zpse3875d32.jpg  photo DSC_0026-2_zpsc7863028.jpg  photo DSC_0084-3_zps8b088333.jpg  photo DSC_0135_zpsd01b1ac7.jpg  photo DSC_0127_zps6014570d.jpg  photo DSC_0142_zps593be395.jpg The Details:                                                                       Photographed by: Carroll Moore

 photo DSC_0012-2_zps38a13a6c.jpg I wore this outfit to grab drinks with a few friends after work.I kept it pretty simple until you arrive at the shoes. Its my first time wearing these Balenciaga sandals that I purchased a few months ago from a second hand store (brand new).  photo DSC_0076_zps24933e37.jpg  photo DSC_0017-2_zps1db5aea7.jpg  photo DSC_0022_zpsc4682da8.jpg  photo DSC_0093_zpsc6d26cb8.jpg THE DETAILS:                                                                  PHOTOGRAPHED BY: Carrol Moore

After being sick this weekend, I made a last minute decision to attend Brooklyn's legendary Afropunk festival.I felt like wearing something that screamed "summer," so I opted for this vintage D&G dress that I found at Buffalo Exchange in Austin. Florals always seem to set the right mood. I'm still lusting over Dolce & Gabbana's spring 2013 RTW collection. The idea of infusing raffia sacks and dresses printed with street-theater puppets was beyond cool!

I stumbled upon this jumpsuit at Beacons Closet a few weeks back… I'm convinced they have the coolest assortment of  second hand clothing  in  NYC.. I wore this outfit to go grab dinner with my boyfriend.      photo DSC_0084_zps115b2883.jpg

I recently made a trip to Dover Street market, located in the midtown section of Manhattan. Amazing, game-changing retail experience in New York City. Lots of exclusive and hard to find brands. This has to be one of the coolest stores ever! The store setup, and product placement is insane! Imagine if Barney's New York and Comme Des Garçons got together and created a child--- resulting in Dover Street market.

picked up these cool ass men's surf shorts by Гоша Рубчинский (Gosha Rubchinskiy), a young, Russian, street designer that I'm now obsessing over…. How could I pass on these shorts at almost 60% off?

Lately I've been craving rich-pink hues for outfit options. There's something about pink that brings out your inner"girl". I scored this amazing skirt a few years ago from this super cool indoor flea market in Dallas. It was one of those hidden gems that you just magically stumble upon.

 Just a few shots of what I wore on Saturday to attend an art gallery in Dumbo, Brooklyn (my new favorite part of NYC)...

I don't feel like its summer until I bust out my favorite (non vintage) Prada dress. Its one of my favorite pieces from the Spring 10' collection that I was able to scoop up at the Prada outlet a few years back. The homage to Josephine Baker couldn't make it any better. I haven't worn it since last summer so I thought it would be cool to see how I would style something old with something new.  photo File350_zps1286c12f.jpg
