London Telephone Booth

Paula Renee, london

 

Hey Mates, I AM IN LONDON! So expect a lot of tele photos. They fire engine booths are at almost every corner going into the city and being the they are ghost of the past in the states it is exciting to know that London still has kept theirs. I am wearing my new fave tank from a brand at Urban Outfitters Silence + Noise. It is so comfy and sexy. I mean my Vicki Secret bra helps with the perkyness but the draping on the racerback shirt is so feminine.

American Black Film Festival

American Black Film Festival

 

A movie I did Wardrobe Styling for will be in The American Black Film Festival this coming Saturday. Titled,”The Perfect Sacrifice,” the short is  one of five competing in the HBO Short Competition. It is great to see the plan coming to life, the entire team we preyed for this. d I learned so much throughout the process and the number one thing I took away from styling the project is that I’m about that set life and will be on many more especially with my new move to Atlanta. Please if you read this send positive vibes our way Saturday night. Also to view the trailer click here.

Kuddos,

Losing to Dementia

My grandmother looking at the latest Elle Spring/Summer magazine while having Starbucks at Barnes and Nobles.

 In two months I depart to another state and lately all I have been doing is giving myself to my friends and family. So much that I have not had time for me, but that’s okay. I feel that this pit stop in the road is to fuel me up for what is to come in the near future and right now they need my energy more than I esp. the woman above, my grandmother. She was diagnosed with early stages of dementia late last year, in January I began to take lead in caring for her, and a couple of months ago she moved to the Bay Area to be with my sister and I.

Birthday Outfit

birthday outfit

It definitely was a celebration! I turned 29 last Saturday which was the reason for the shot of ‘yack’ in my hand.This is the last year of my twenties and I am happy to turn a new leaf Seems as though our birthday’s are just as self-seeking and motivating as each New Year. The reflection this year was not as deepening as my previous twenty-something:regretful, concern, fear, uncertainty. Maybe because it is the last year of my twenties and I have a bigger understanding of acceptance and faith. So the morning before my Birthday came with a simple prayer and a sermon that I discovered immediately after on YouTube. Titled,”Instinct,” by TD Jakes the motivational speech centered around his latest book solidified what most of my previous years was and what the next decade will be spent doing: Preparation through instinct to action and flying. Now that I got that off my chest, on a lighter note let’s discuss my birthday outfit. Read More

Pharrell do not look surprised that you made something else a hit and this time it wasn’t your music. It is your Vivienne Westwood Mountain hat.

While attending the Grammy’s, a award ceremony filled with custom suits and embellished gowns,   Pharrell Williams opted for the opposite wearing a very casual look: denim pants, a t-shirt under an Adidas jacket, and a oversized hat that could have been his date over his wife. Before the hitmaker  finished walking the red carpet he became the most talked about celebrity of the night because everyone wanted to know what’s up with the hat?

Now hashtag #mountainhat and you will find numerous of images primarily of other cool guys sporting the 18 inch high oversize accessory designed by Vivenne Westwood in 1982 for her Nostalgia Collection. The hat sold exclusively at London’s historical fashion maven London End’s World for just $180.00 is to my dismay out of stock but if you give your contact info you might get a reply back to get like the “Happy,” singer.

Yesterday’s stroll to get lunch concluded that Spring is definitely all around us. Despite California’s drought the brown leaves have still managed to become green and the little flowers are sprouting beautifully.

Lately I have been insisting on wearing a pair of boot’s, passed down to me by my mother, almost every day. Purchased over 15 years ago the lace up Franco Sorto shoe has stayed in excellent condition. I hope I will be able to give them to my future daughter once the shoe fits.IMG_0212 IMG_0214


Signs of a good pair of jeans: GAP 1969 legging Jeans

gap 1969 legging jeans

Met my friend Jenn for lunch and she looked awesome with only a white t-shirt, denims, and a pair of heels. When she was complimented, she immediately mentioned she had on a new pair of Gap 1969 legging jeans and the aha moment came. Here are my top 5 signs you have on a good pair of jeans:

IMG_0127

  1.  The moment you put them on you look 5 pounds lighter.
  2. You attempt to wear them twice in one week.
  3. You can itemize them with simple shirt and not feel so simple.
  4. When your shirt goes up it doesn’t reveal that gravity has not taken your jeans down to your ass crack.
  5. The compliments keep flowing about how good you look and you give it all to the jeans like you don’t look good too.
