White Chucks + Brown Fringe

I found this brown fringe leather dress at a thrift shop in Soho, and of course I squealed with delight when I picked it up! It was a bit pricey for my typical thrift finds, but it was all worth it. I didn’t only see it as a clean statement dress, but a nice vest […] Read more…

Aztec Vintage Jacket and Denim headwrap

Continuing with my desire to show off my love for thrifted goodies, I strolled Dumbo with one of my favorite jackets found in the East Village a few years ago after a meeting. The great thing about being an entrepreneur in fashion/arts is that I can wear whatever I damn well please when I’m meeting […] Read more…

Brunch Culture

I love brunch. It’s such a silly thing to love, but it’s really the one time I really catch up with my friends to talk about everything without filter. We dress up to eat breakfast foods accompanied by cocktails in the middle of the afternoon. We speak loudly. Sit for an enormous amount of time. […] Read more…

It’s been spring for a week now, but it’s still winter. Seriously, the wind almost knocked me down the other day, and you could only imagine how I’m feeling.

Finding Harlem Street Style: Arsene

Mother nature decided to curse us all with her long, icy fingers. I can almost picture her cackling loudly at our misery. I’m not sure what we did to deserve this, but she’s not remotely interested in our happiness right now. Temperatures for this past week have stayed in the teens and early twenties (Fahrenheit), […] Read more…

Style post: Oversized Sweater

  Remember the little blue leather dress I wore for my birthday? At first glance, I knew I wanted to wear it for a night out because of its cutout in the back. But after I bought it, I knew it would also look beautiful with all sorts of sweaters, including oversized ones. It’s now […] Read more…
