sorry for the lack of posts, however i would love to
announce some good news...you can now follow me on my journey as Fashion Editor
at ESSENCE.com! Hence the homage above of
vintage magazine covers.
I will now bring you more street style coverage, personal
chats with designers and hot fashion finds.
Follow me on this journey at ESSENCE.com/fashion and on
as of late i've been working on a few projects.
needle+thræd, a fashion line that i created rooted in
social responsibility, partners with artisans to create
modern pieces using traditional fabrics and craftsmanship.
my throw pillows, which are the first items
in my line was recently covered by a new cool blog called Gentlem3ns Club.
check out for the rest of the post here...
lately i've seen head wraps [for fashion purposes]
worn everywhere. prints and patterns, wrapped
elaborately, but to me she was an original.
from a distance i spotted the hot pink fabric
twisted above the crown of her head and down
around her neck, and when i got closer she was
even more stunning- a natural beauty.
it was a simple reminder that sometimes
less is more.
if you don't know CB2, please get to know them. it's
crate and barrel's little sister for city dwellers
(ie: apts, lofts, brownstones etc). along with paper
magazine they celebrated its second store opening in nyc
[58th & 3rd ave] with random guest appearances from DMC
(from Run DMC of course)to maggie gyllenhaal.
the best part- they partnered with new design high school
and gave students an opportunity to work with street style photographers backyard bill, eddie newton and street peeper
[who are all great by the way].
i was a new york city rat last halloween.
(mask + brown poncho + accidental red chipped nails).
it was cheap and cheerful. when i came across these masks on j.crew's blog
it completely reminded me of this. just download, color them, et voila!
you've got a costume.
what are you going to be this halloween?
