Ok so originally, I planned on wearing a long flowy maxi bottom or pencil skirt with this top. On the other hand, I was heading over to my girl’s birthday party which was taking place on the rooftop of her building. Putting thought into it realistically, wearing a skirt would not have been the greatest choice throughout the day rolling into the night most importantly if I wanted to dance without any high rises. Instead, I slipped on a pair of loose fitted acid washed joggers w/ elasticized drawstring and leg cuffs along with enough room to move & groove.
I often get asked “who does your braids” and I do them myself. Keeping up w/ it can be time-consuming but I take good pride behind the whole process of maintaining it including the labor and all lol! I revel in changing up the style of my braids whether it’s up, down, ponytail, space buns or wrapped. Leaving it down, I twisted my braids to create more of a bulkier look adding a colorful Hawaiian hibiscus flower hair clip with alligator clasps to provide grip & hold.
- Fun Fact – I am Salvadorian, French & Hawaiian born in Mexico and raised in Queens, New York since 1 year old.
My shirt features all over Hawaiian hibiscus and leaf print with a basic collar, button down front closures, short sleeves and point hem which I tied up into a knot to add some edginess. Accessorizing the shirt, I wore a sea shell brooch I purchased from Paradox Thrift Shop. This shop is one of my favorite local thrift stores here in New York. Ask for Jessi, she’s the sweetest person ever<3
I even accessorize my braids too!
