Saturday night I put on my shortest shorts, babysat a chunky babe aka watched a little cutie sleep on one of those nifty monitors then went to a party. Once the weather gets warm all bets are off and I'm showing my best asset: them legs.
HAND ME DOWN NIKES + H&M DRESS + DIY JACKET FROM MY CHILDHOOD + GIFTED HAT
I dug up this piece of nostalgia in the house I grew up in...or was it that I always had it with me since I moved out at 18? Anyway, I have this awesome Pocahontas jacket from the Disney Store that used to be my jam and at 24 apparently is still my jam. So with the help of my homie Masa (I'll post about him soon) I studded the shit out of it and here you have it: perfection.
LEOTARD VIA CENTURY 21 + BDG SHORTS + CONVERSE SNEAKERS + NECKLACE FROM MY FORMER JOB
So last week here in New York was a hellish scorcher and with each passing day and the hotter it got, I left the house in less and less clothing. It was as if the roads split and the fiery pits of hell spewed out for our discomfort and stickiness. Ugh. It was not good.
1. Oh, who is that? Damn, he's fiiine! 2. *looks down* LOVING his footwear
3. *looks up* cute outfit
I'm a shoe person, not to be confused with a clothes person (I love clothes but the feeling isn't the same) or an accessories queen. For me shoes are part of the holy trinity of getting ready: hair: check!
outfit: check! shoes: check! Let's hit the goddamn road! What can I say, a mean shoe game makes me swoon. Here's an abbreviated collection that would make me bat my eyelashes and laugh at all your jokes:
Seriously, like in all seriousness Xander's The Look is some life
motto shit, some "I'm feeling myself" shit, some "aren't I sickening
bitch?" shit. I really do get my life from this song which is comprised
of Xander's wisdom put to a track by the Gay Pimp himself, Jonny
I'm pretty sure I wore a beach cover up the other day and guess what, I don't give a damn. On the the real, everything in our closets is a fashion possibility despite the time of year. Ask any of my friends, I wear what I want when I want. I'm pretty passionate about expressing yourself how you see fit. If your expression manifests itself in a neon mesh top circa 2002, I'm going to rock with you because that's how you want to express yourself. I won't cosign, no sir, but I will defend the shit out of your right to wear that ugly ass top.
I know it's hot as balls outside and the last thing you're thinking about is wearing boots but bare with me. While contemplating restoring my OkCupid profile (I did), I found myself on the Acne website and of course I went straight to the shoes because goddamnit shoes are super important. Any who, their boots are quite dope. A bit pricey, well ok, super fucking pricey especially for a young gal who can only afford to pay her rent and cop some drinks on the weekends; I did some virtual window shopping. Here are my out of reach picks from Acne's boot selection:
There aren't many things I wouldn't do to get a solid five minutes of shopping time in Solange's closet. Seriously, I'd lay in a glass coffin of snakes, Fear Factor style, just to see what sartorial treasures this woman posses. I never could have imagined Bey's little sister, who was rocking wavy braids and a beanie on the cover of her debut album Solo Star as a teen, would evolve into this fashion goddess. Adore doesn't quite speak to how I feel about Solange's style; it's everything. It's edgy, experimental, youthful, colorful and very much personal. As usual, Solange didn't disappoint this weekend at the Sixth Annual Roots Picnic. The way she mixes prints is perfection. Take note.
And for your listening pleasure I bring to you Solange and Oliver Sims performing a cover of one of my favorite songs in the universe: Nicole Wray's Make it Hot
SNEAKERS VIA UO + F21 SKIRT + GIFTED TEE FROM MY BROTHER + LIZ CLAIBORNE JACKET (INSIDE)
Tiger titties is one of my favorite tees. A naked broad in a tiger mask
can be viewed as gross or art. Frankly, I like that it’s a bit of both.
At times I’m attracted to the obscene, the unsightly, with that said this is the only one of its kind in my wardrobe.
