…. a bit jaded

 photo IMG_0187_2_zps925c64b3.jpg Its hard to believe that we're at the beginning of a new year. I'm thankful to God and all of you for your continued support as I continue to evolve. I hope to connect with some amazing people this year. learn more about myself. Set goals. Follow no rules. Grow deep in love. stay humble. Travel. Explore, and have no regrets.

 My latest post was inspired by old New York street culture. After living in Brooklyn for over a year now I realized that I draw a lot of my inspiration from the people and things around me.These photos
were shot in the Crown Heights area of Brooklyn.  photo IMG_0174_zps005b6b64.jpg

Enjoying home cooked Jellof rice prepared by my mom and drinking underpriced margaraitias with friends was the best thing a girl could ask for.I'm wearing Alice & Olivia flare jeans, thrifted top, and Ralph Lauren sandals.  photo IMG_2033_zps20421c19.jpg  photo IMG_2035_zpsbe0e925e.jpg  photo IMG_2051_zps418408d1.jpg

 photo DSC_0362a_zpsae6ad2be.jpg I shot these photos last week before heading back to Texas for thanksgiving. I've been slightly obsessing over hats since I cut my hair a couple of months ago. I'm convinced that hats have become the coolest accessory...  I can't wait to share more about my trip to Texas and some new projects that I'll be working on in my up coming post.

I recently had the opportunity to be the leading lady in a music video. Just a few shots I snapped after wrapping up filming. I can't wait to share more once the video is released. I'm wearing a vintage No Label dress, Margiela cape coat, and my favorite Zara sandals.

For as long as I can remember I've always been a huge supporter and consumer of vintage clothing. Nothing makes shopping more interesting than finding a dope piece from one of my favorite designers. I've been looking forward to posting this RARE Junya Watanabe dress for some time now. The sudden change in temperature has me re-adjusting my wardrobe and trading in my crop tops for chunky turtleneck sweaters and leather biker jackets.

Brown Skin Lady

Since living in New York, I've realized that dressing for the in between seasons can be a bit of a challenge. In Texas I really only had two seasons to worry about. Spring and summer seemed to last for almost 9 months out of the year. The remaining 3 months was what we believed to be our fall/winter weather.

 I pulled out this old thrifted dress that I can't get enough of. The beautiful shades of pink and lavender create the perfect floral hues. Theres something about the fabric that always seems to remind of 70s upholstery fabric.

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
