    Pastel Fever…

    Summer is here!!! Finally… Along with summer comes the breezy clothes and candy colors that I love so much but what happens when you don’t want to look too breezy (which we have enough time for) but add some edge to your look?  I wanted something raw and decided a play with my natural fro would do the trick so I styled it as a mohawk to give my outfit an edgier personality which worked mighty fine because I felt instantly strong and warrior like. You know that amazonian feeling when you are all dressed and you feel like you are your own muse with life’s sole purpose of a 1000…

    All Fun and Stripes…

    A picture says a thousand words. It captures the bumps, lumps, curves and insecurities of its subject however, in that beautifully flawed moment, our beauty and strength surfaces. Stripes can be tricky however they are a nice addition to your closet if combined properly. Stripes are also very versatile for all kinds of looks and silhouette, I made this a 2 in 1 look changing the shoes and hat.. These are my happy go lucky looks, both looks are reminiscent of styles that cut across my aesthetic, they are very comfortable and also street chic… For my plus Queens, be careful about length especially for the mini skirt, your miniskirts should…
