The 90’s

Have you ever wanted to go back into time or felt you were born in the wrong generation?

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”

Guatemalan Textile Bomber

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!

Stripes & Corduroy

Im writing this post from a place of confusion and intramural emotions. I gotta give myself an entirety mind, body & soul reset while keeping my eye on the prize and rolling w/ the punches amongst a shitty situation because fuck it – the show must go on.  Im taking deep gasps and exhales reminding myself when you feel lost and tangled, distinguish each sound. And when there is none, let the rhythm of your own breath bring you back to state of peace & presence. 

With that being said, moving on – –  I am an admirer of patterned stripes anything as it furthermore grabs my attention. For a bit, I have been eyeballing a sweatshirt online by Nike throw on and go crewneck w/ dropped shoulders, stripped design, Nike swoosh logo and relaxed fit for a slouchy silhouette. At first, I wasn’t so quick to buying the sweater being too pricey for my liking. I figured, if its meant to be I’ll catch it on sale which eventually I did for 50% off few weeks later.

I instantly knew the crewneck would work well w/ my classic high top Chuck Taylors from Converse that features a vintage inspired wale wide corduroy fabric and topped w/ the iconic All Star patch and insole for maximum comfort. I mingled in wearing thrifted light washed jeans w/ my tan-ish brown corduroy fanny pack with zippered front pockets and a top closure, grosgrain waist belt strap, and a release buckle closure which I picked up from Forever21 on a whim during the fall. Although, both corduroy items both have different shades of brown, it still all mixes well. To finish off the look, I threw my hair up in faux bangs w/ a sheer white thrifted head scarf to channel my inner love for the 50’s & 60’s era as mixing it w/ modern times. Added some blue eye shadow, my signature cat eye, lip gloss & gold hoop earrings.

In the clouds

I just adore this outfit, reverencing straightforward it was a must have at first sight type deal for me. Although, theres an avalanche of ways I could/can style this outfit, with its image and central colors I appointed to designate the approach of a playful structure while still sustaining an adolescent appearance. The atmospheric climate conditions was on point as I voice to convey the importance on this being how it affects how to clothe, bundle up, swathe & array yourself before stepping outdoors, am I right?

I wore a dreamy Lazy Oaf  Boilersuit I caught on sale half off.  You reign in this dope snug sky blue peached cotton fabric long sleeve jumpsuit that has a pointed collar, front button closures with a twinin’ waist belt. The cut is loose fitted smoothly straight down to a tapered leg cut, pockets at the hips and all over custom cloud print.

I snatched my hair into a bun adding a coral, fuchsia, salmon, blush flush rose scrunchy. The jewelry was kept mildly delicate to not veneer the suit. Ok so ..I did leave my house w/ shoes on my feet (as will see on the last picture below) but I had show the ostentation of these sky blue ankle socks that have an all over heart and ruffle deetz that look cute AF as it enclosed & completes my provisions.
