PRETTY IN PINK.

More on more as the days pass, I am starting to transition into wearing more street wear clothing and brands, but still adding girly touches here and there. I bought this Adidas dress at the official store in New York City right when they were having a 50% off sale. I immediately fell in love with this dress because it's so girly, yet casual and laid back.



Dress - Adidas
Shoes - Converse

NEW YORK.

Here I am, back with another overdue update (sorry for the lateness, I sincerely apologize), but I have some wonderful photos and moments to share with you from my recent trip to New York City! I can't even explain how excited I was to visit for the first time, seeing that I always dreamed about visiting New York ever since I was a child -- it was literally a dream come true. I ventured to the Big Apple with a couple of friends and we decided to stay in New Jersey to save money and just commute back and forth the to the city. 

Upon arriving in Jersey and seeing the New York skyline, I instantly became emotional and couldn't believe I was finally near the one place that always invaded my dreams and thoughts. The weather was perfect just about all five days that we were there (except for some slight rain, but I didn't mind it at all), and we visited just about every part of New York during our stay, from Manhattan to Soho to Harlem and beyond. Being from a small town, the fast paced movement kind of threw me off, but I quickly adjusted and had the time of my life. New York is truly how it seems in the movies.

Here's a few photos from the trip, from what I wore to where I visited:


(In Chelsea, New York, right down the street from the Fashion Institute of Techonology. Wearing Charlotte Russe wedges, 'Adventure Time' dress, and Romwe leather jacket)


(Walking through Times Square)


(Waiting for the Path train from Jersey to the city. Wearing two piece outfit from Choies and heels from Shoe Dazzle)


(In front of Stussy store in Soho, NY. Wearing thrifted baseball jersey, leather shorts from Knee Deep Denim, thrifted crop top, and Nike Dunks)


(Somewhere in Union Square wearing a Romwe leather jacket, skirt from Nasty Gal, thrifted boots, and crop top from Forever 21)


(Photo Op in Chinatown wearing a crop top from Forever 21, knitted leggings from Forever 21, Sk8 Hi Vans from Zumiez, and an Obey hat)


(Sixth Ave and West 32nd street sign)

If everything works out for me, I will be transferring schools in January to FIT and moving on to live my life in New York, Also, I will hopefully be visiting New York again in September to volunteer for Fashion Week! Wish me luck!

GRUNGE IT UP.

So summer school is back in session, meaning a lighter work load and more time to enjoy friends, myself, and fashion. Usually, the summer is my peak time when it comes to updating my blog and I've only been on delay because of problems with my computer being able to read the card for my camera. Now that I've fixed that error, I bring to you some photos I snapped from this past weekend.

EARTH ANGEL.

I've been working a lot lately on my self photography and working with different styles. Since I am the creator of most of my style photos, I thought it would be best to improve my skills and learn how to become better at the art of photography. Check out my improved photo quality in the photos below, also along with some denim on denim styling.







Outfit - All Thrift

KEEP IT TRILL.

If you haven't heard about KYC Vintage by now, trust me, you're missing out. It's a vintage, deadstock website that has the latest street gear, ranging from nostalgic Tommy Hilfiger items to $5 bucket hats. Below, I'm wearing their reversible 'Trill' jersey that can also be seen in my 'Adidas x Nike' post. The jersey only cost me $7 and the prices on their website are amazing. Be cautious though, things sell out rather quickly over there. You can check them out at http://kycvintage.bigcartel.com

NUBIAN.

All second semester, I was trying to decide what I would want my summer 'aesthetic' to be. Usually, I don't stick to one set style, but I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could do it. I decided to mix elements of feminine and street, seeing that I am absolutely obsessed with street wear (it's the industry I want to work in after I graduate, particularly men's street wear). Here's my most recent take on this aesthetic. 







Crop Top - Forever 21
Mini Skirt - Forever 21
Camo Jacket - Thrift
Shoes - Jeffrey Campbell
