Topshop

Sale. Bargain. Freakin’ deal is what it was when I walked into Topshop last Friday.  While making the racks squeak at the $20,$40, and $60 racks I finally pulled out the dress that made my mouth drop. The class of the length, the consistency in the pleats, and the unexpected details of the floral mixed with the pastel plaid, the dress has so much going on in a subtle way. Definitely a suit for me! Because I did some major miles around the city I didn’t dress it up too much, so I can not wait to wear it at its full potential. My dad was my O’ so awesome photographer… so check out the pictures we snapped all around the city. Read More


Purchase above the Rest: NYFW

Lincoln Center had it all, but it was a few that deserved the flash.Check out my top street-style snaps from NYFW.


NYFW: Black

The saying goes…when in doubt wear black, BUT when it is 90 degrees of beaming sun maybe we should have looked at the forecast first! I along with a slew of other fashion goers decided to wear the color that attracts heat on Day 6 of New York Fashion Week.  Although we were stylish we were definitely HOT. After a long day I was happy to give two deuces to the sun and Lincoln Center. Read More


NYFW: Essence.com

Style spotted today  on Essence.com  while I was in the midst of taking pictures during yesterdays shows at New York Fashion Week. Since I was acting like a serious paparazzo  I opted for something casual and airy. The dress that I wore is oldie but goodie Eddie Bauer that I purchased on Burbanks Magnolia blvd. They have really cool vintage/consignment shops. The one that I adore most is Swift. This dress along with some tailored bottoms were a practical steal and fit so perfectly that no altering was needed. I  decided to make the nautical look more urban by adding gold accessories including the golden metallic stoppers that I found on Urban Outfitters.com that you can purchase here.

 

 


Ever Magazine

Oui’ Oui’ . If you know me than you know mon amour est le français. So I was elated when I was tagged in an early morning tweet from photographer Caro Ramirez with the link to our spread in Le Magazine, a French online editorial. Titled “Around The Way Girl,” the concept was created based on cool places that I see daily right in my hood. Check it out by clicking here.

Costume Life

 

I was blessed with the opportunity to take on the biggest job of my short career as a Costume Supervisor for a film titled The Perfect Sacrifice. Last week we finished wrapping five days of filming that was broken up in two parts, June and August. Based on a true story, Director and Writer Tiffany Littlejohn tells the story of a mother Mamie Bradley Till decision to have an open casket after her 15 year old son Emmett Till is brutally murdered in Mississippi the summer of 1955. Boy! The film changed my life. I learned so much about history, my history, and also that I love Costume Design but this shit is hard work!
