Hey everyone, Im back.. I am back from the interval lapse which seeps through my movement (no pun intended) This will be more of a smaller yet not inconsequential post. I want to be applicable triggering straight to the point of displaying only a single photo being my last shoot w/ sliver hair. Been harboring publishing options thus far this was still a dope ass look to style so, here it is. I’ll return w/ updated hair color change (in real time) and outfits -stay tuned!
Haaaay ladies & gents, this post experience some trials and tribulations publishing but it’s here – at last. For the writing portion, I will keep it short and sweet (expanding more on the brand in a later post.) I’ve been browsing the web for some funky overalls or dungarees and “voila” I found Lucy & Yak. There were so many items to choose from even outside of only dungarees. I purchased the rainbow print and loving every minute of it while strutting down the street with it on! Check for outfit details are below and enjoy!
Hello and welcome back to the blog. This post will relatively be terse as the one prior. I want to matriculate from my corporeal and presence. Weeks have passed (as I’am forever changing my appearance) and I currently colored my hair grey. Nonetheless, I couldn’t refrain from sharing this assorted shoot being my last outfit taken while still rocking my yellow hair. Primarily, I want to move forward w/ future post reflecting real time which is on deck for the next blog post.
All items are thrifted from Buffalo Exchange in New York & New Mexico
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.

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”

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!

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.

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 fromtheChampion Heavyweight Mock Necklong 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 fromMidtown Comicsand the other is a “Ranchero Pin” fromLa 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.
