I will be keeping this post conventionally abridged and straight to the point as moving forward posts are in pertinent manner. Although my gears are freshly tuned, putting content out (even one picture) is more advantageously then nothing.
So, consider this post a “hello” and greetings from myself to any and everyone that animadvert’s my website. Stay tuned, I got my creative juices brewing ready to serve styled outfits and looks!

These days can seem exceptionally repetitive, lingering and longer lasting during quarantine, if you let it. Off the back, its most certain that everyone’s situation is different from the next yet, it also involves individual’s perspective too. Im a true believer when it comes to focusing on the function of your abilities – If you can control the mind, the body will follow. Which brings me write about One Sound Body.
Health is wealth as their moto is it’s “One Life. One Body.” A sense of comfort with who you are – your identity. What’s important to you – your values.
What you put first – your priorities. What you ultimately want to to do – your goals.
People go and reach out to One Sound Body when they want to look, feel, and/or perform better. OSB becomes a crucial part of their client’s social support system while empowering people’s potential for growth and change. They take a wide angle to look at your “deep health” which includes physical, mental, emotional, existential, relational-social, and environmental. Owner/coach Stephen has quoted “Great coaching isn’t just about providing the most current scientific knowledge about health, fitness, nutrition, and behavior. It’s about inspiring and helping people take action. Real change comes from consistently choosing different actions, not just what we think or know. They will teach you how to put knowledge into practice.”
Every moment is a fresh beginning. As this whole pandemic is occurring remember, be healthy, take care, love & kind to yourself full circle. These berserk times are a tiny fraction compared to what lies within us.

There is a romance with the notion of an artist, minimal or divided when you first see something brand new, chances are you will feel uncomfortable.
But this is what is necessary of creation, manufactured. release the less fabrication. Brainiac, scaling independent genius, feeling closer to the earth. Work full of references, be your own self blueprint.
through my art I can be sharing my knowledge or sharing my pain.
Respect the schedule, describe the work, access memory bank. Totally unknown, terribly young and very ambitious. Latching on vibrant high energy translated above the surface, injected permanently on canvas skin. Great eye with quality on all different fields.
Non influential choices not made based by what is popular at the time, create your own self blueprint.
Understanding where to position yourself, confirmation and convenience. In the mist of nothing to lose and nothing to prove.

This is an oldie but a goodie. Main eras that I am downright gratified by, dipping into on a regular are the 50’s-60’s, 90’s, including bits and pieces of the 80’s and Victorian era. As the 1990’s plays a significant portion of my everyday, I perpetually been enthralled with the rawness of development, creativity, style, fashion and music. Emerging diverse grounds while evolving, I feel fortunate to hold recollection of all surroundings, the ambience and my community building as a young kid from Queens, New York.
Granted, I grew up in a household which consist of listening to Rock -n-Roll, alternative, disco, rockabilly, hip hop and r&b, I indulge in styling/mix-matching and combining eras. One thing is, I do not allow myself to fall under any restrictions nor full commitments to dispense a particular image. I am a chameleon and my moto is “Style is what you want it to be”

Lots of life must have lived in this jacket antecedent to it finding me, I envisage the long haul drudgery of looped woven stitches to it’s finalization and distribution. My mind wonders trickling across thrift clothing and self perception. For example, If you wear a white coat that you believe belongs to a doctor, your ability to pay attention increases sharply. But if you wear the same white coat believing it belongs to a painter, your attention span may differ. I love the idea of trying to figure out why when we put on certain clothes, the affects of our mood & basic abilities shift. This is my perception & aesthetic w/ this jacket, some worn pieces say a lot without saying anything at all.
I bought my ostentatious bomber jacket from Resale Folds, one of my favorite treasured thrift shops to shop – ask for Lucia & Jesse. They both own & restock all items w/ detailed vision alongside infectious personalities you will not be able to stir away from, genuinely prodigious human beings. This magnum opus is a beautiful vibrant vintage handmade Guatemalan textile patchwork style bomber jacket. Its a unisex multicolored stripes and pattern weave background, cotton batwing long sleeve w/ a front zipper, stand up collar, ribbed knit cuffs, two inset pockets, rib knit elastic waist band, boxy shoulder fit and some neon love.
I made usage of comparable color scheme scarf I owned which is actually a knot-wrap for gift wrapping from Lush. For the past years, this has been my “go to” buying most of these wraps turning them into head scarfs. I gelled my front hair, throwing the rest of it in a rivet messy half ponytail as coupling my curls hanging out whimsically.
I wore light weight beige thermal underneath, standard blue jeans adjacent to Converse Chuck Taylor multi-colored sequin sneakers with upper a reflective patch and a cushioned insole. Kept the jewelry light wearing only my gold hoop earrings, cat eyeliner, mauve nude lipstick from MAC Cosmetics (I can’t remember the shade) zing green eyeshadow from Jane Cosmestics in the inner tear dot for that pop of radiance & highlight. Closing out the outfit, I clinched a large pin across the collar to keep that up-right effect w/out having to “pop my collar” consistently – worked like a charm!

Hey guys, I hope you are all safe & healthy. With the state and chaos w/ Covid-19, Ive been indecisive on pushing back the relaunch of my blog, as I have – easing into the shift of humanity worldwide yet not being desensitized among current events. I do deem a jovial place for artists to be exactly that artists, create content and expand which these days shine to do so for uplifting. Veritably, Ive had some hard knocks with the consistency. However, here I am with a greater ambition and appetite to continue this odyssey as equivalent to the very beginning from when I first started blogging. In conclusion, progressing forward w/ new material featuring various looks, mix-matching eras, colors, contrast & patterns together pieces at a time in hopes my website can bring some light & comfort during these asperous times.
For all my readers who have been around since day one, the current, very new ones and those who may have even stumble across my site, welcome & welcome back!
Synchronically combing black on black top & hat w/ a splash contrasting zebra and camouflage print, I spurred up this look. The dominant pick of clothing stemmed from the Champion Heavyweight Mock Neck long sleeve with branded detailing and rib-knit trim in a men size medium I purchased last fall in urban outfitters (linked above). Wearing a thrifted soft-knit black beret accessorizing using two pins which one of the pins I bought from Midtown Comics and the other is a “Ranchero Pin” from La Sirena NYC. I fused in my skinny ripped camo jeans from Forever 21.
My tan snatched belt was thrifted ages ago adding some warmth against the darker colors. My kicks are zebra print converse which is no longer stocked on the website but I’ll link HERE the exact replica featured under “Chuck 70 Archive” still available online with a higher chunk on the heel and different finish as this one applies a leather-ish feel and the sneakers Im wearing are fabric like and flat heeled. I straightened my hair wearing it sleeked down and whipped on a foresty green lipstick in the shade “Raunchy” from Coloured Raine cosmetics.

Away with summer in with fall, brisk transitions clinching onto the final sun beams, skin felt burnt rays and shimmering golden days mother nature still has to offer. Present on this solar day, I prepped myself for an eventful evening channeling my inner chicana vibes from head to toe sporting my t-shirt from Legendary Empowerment
Legendary Empowerment is founded by Vegas Brisa in 2013 straight out of Las Vegas on 90’s nostalgia and everything that inspired her growth in that era. The message behind the designs are meant to feel empowering, break social stigmas, promote unity and encourage people to recognize their own innate resilience.
Being my t-shirt the main attire staple for the outfit, secondary to a superior completion I wore my dark brown BDG vintage inspired slouchy high-rise mom pants in a super cozy corduroy. High-rise waist with a straight, relaxed leg that tapers in at the ankle. Finished with 4 pockets & a button-topped zip fly.
In addition paired together, threw on simplistic chuck taylor classics, hiked up white socks, gold heart shaped bamboo earrings, tiger eye bracelets and gold accessorized rings. As for my hair mixing eras, I styled it into timeless victory rolls using a old scarf I cut up to compliment the look. If you’re not familiar w/ victory rolls, its women’s hairstyle popular in the 1940 – 1960’s, characterized by voluminous curls of hair to frame the face.

Quick back story: Tracing back to the spring time when I took a “girl’s trip” w/ a friend to Los Angeles. Mid-day on our way to cram & ingest brunch, cruising down LA’s boulevards in our rent-a-car we stumbled across a Dolls Kill store. Sudden gasp, all in awe’s among some mean eyeballing as we drove by, we both shouted “we gotta go there.” If you aren’t familiar w/ the brand, Dolls Kill is an online boutique featuring a rebellious spirit and attitude, mixed with a bit of punk rock, goth, glam and festival fashion. As for those who know me, I mean those who really know me – know I’m always a punk kid at heart!
After digesting down & devouring brunch we made our way to the freshly new opened store in LA located on 415 N. Fairfax. Apace of pride, I strode away leaving w/ two staple pieces I can wear multiudinous ways. These two staples being inspiration for my outfit involves and strictly revolves around a O-ring choker bull charm with a buckle closure and captain hat with a vinyl bill. Now, lets fast forward to present time where I accoutre everything in sync.
Aiming for more of a militant image, I assimilated a sleek yet simple all black garments. I gathered my thrifted belt, mid high wasted jeans and sleeveless black bodysuit in ribbed stretched jersey with a mock turtleneck and lined gusset with snap fasteners for that secure strapped in feel.
To execute the fit, I wore a pair of faux leather knee-high combat boots featuring a round toe, lace-up closure, side zipper, and buckle strap detail. My black skull earrings are from Tarina Tarantino. I just love her jewelry, very costume like and these classic Memento Mori skull and black swarovski crystal detail. My rings & moon ring are all from a boutique from different parts of Los Angeles.
