Somewhere Between Psychotic and Iconic


Blouse- Uniqlo (similar)
Black and White Floral Skirt- Forever 21
Shoes- Oxfords
Body Chain- Similar
Rings- Vintage


I've been taking a much need break from being in front of camera, just to figure out somethings regarding my career, school and lifestyle. However, I thought it was about time I posted this look I wore about three weeks ago before going to the Brooklyn flea market on Saturday afternoon. If you never knew this about me before, I'll be the first to tell you that I love vintage shopping whether it be at a flea market or from thrift store. Just the idea of purchasing an item that has become exclusive and unique to its buyer is such an awesome concept to me…I'll try to snap a collection of pictures whenever I get go to thrifting again.

I wore a black button up collared blouse that I snatched from Uniqlo (the cotton is to die for soft!), what's strange is that I almost never shop for anything in Uniqlo mainly because it's not quite my aesthetic. However, I went in there with a friend and came out with this blouse. As per usual, I tucked the blouse into a floral mini skirt, for a bit of a preppy attire. Since the black of the blouse was a tad bit flat photographic wise, I chose to wear my favorite body chain for depth and more interest in what could easily be a plain outfit.

Questioning The Exsistents


I'll always find comfort in wearing black and white…such a great way to put together a classic polished look.


White Cardigan- Similar
Pants- Zara
Amaya Boots- Miista from Solestruck


I shot this look so long ago that I completely forgot about it until now. I'm wearing my favorite white lace crop top with a slightly slouchy fit pants to bring balance to the look. I actually wore this look one day for my internship except, I switched out the shoes for more flat comfy ones since I'd be running around on my feet all day. However, I love the unexpected addition of green boots to this look, as the pop of color brings a little more interest to the beautiful yet simplistic attire of just the black and white.

As you may, or may not know…I'm a fashion designer in the making but I haven't quite showed that side of me that much here on my blog. For the next few weeks and possibly the rest of the year I'll be working on a personal project regarding the designer aspect of my life which sadly means..I'll be cutting down on making daily blogs. Now listen, I'm not quiting! lol "a quitter never wins" but I'm just focusing more on building up my caliber and making that side of me more known that just being "the personal style blogger". I'll definitely be sharing my journey here on the blog with possible videos and I'll still update on the outfits that I wear. So I thank those who have riding with me on this blogging journey thus far and I really can't wait to show more of my designer side to you all. Hope you had a great weekend!

Parallel Sustainance Of Hurt


My typically casual weekend look consists of: a panama hat, loose top, statement jewelry, whatever bottom seems comfortable at the time and comfy/cute shoes.


Top- Forever 21
Pants- Zara
Shoes- Miista Ivy from Solestruck
Grey Panama Hat- Sole Society
Necklace- Vintage

It's Friday and I couldn't be any more happier that the weekend is here for me to relax, have some fun and have regrets the morning after. 
You'll rarely ever find me wearing denim pants or tight legged pants overall but, occasionally out of nowhere i'll throw on a good pair of pants and hit the road especially if it's a more casual day out. Funny enough, the pants I'm wearing in this look are these army green ones that I've been wearing a whole lot since I bought them at Zara…they're really comfortable and can easily be paired with many things. I stuck to my comfort zone of wearing a black baby doll top with my huge vintage necklace that  I've literally had for years (4 years) but never actually worn them out until now.

With the perfect pair of boots and one of my favourite hats, my look was complete and ready to take on a fun filled day in Brooklyn. I actually went to a free concert after snapping these photos…it was kind of lame but I guest you get what you pay for..in my case, I paid nothing hahaha. I hope you all have a great weekend!

Summer Bliss


Summer weekends in Brooklyn seems like perfection in my eyes. The open air, small restaurants and the people makes it all feel worth while


Band Tee- Forever 21
Pants- H&M
Sunglasses- Thrift
Necklace- Vintage from Jamaica

Sorry for the endless scrolling for this post, but deciding which ones to post was extremely hard because a lot of the frames came out so well hence my indecisive personality came kicking in. 
This post is filled with all the elements that I love in one of my typically everyday outfits…black and white, band tee, great pair of sunglasses, awesome jewelry and comfy shoes. I realized how much I haven't posted a look wearing a band tee in such a long time (funny enough I wear a band tee at least once a week),  however one weekend I decided to get snapped wearing this perfect Johnny Ramone tee  that I got really cheap at Forever 21 about a year ago. 

I know this isn't quite the typically "Summer look" but, sometimes I can't help but wear my dark elements no matter what season it is as long as the material is lightweight and allows me to breathe without sweating like a pig in the heat of the Summer. Lately, I've been wearing a lot more of my vintage jewelry that I've had for years because I realized one day how much I began to neglect them for some of my newer ones…so the necklace I'm wearing is one I got from this really cool vintage store back home in Jamaica about 6 years ago and surprisingly still kept it after all those years! I have no idea why it took me this long to style it here on the blog but I'm glad I finally got to share it because it's such a unique piece and goes pretty well with the overall look. A little pop of colour in my sunglasses was necessary to bring a little life to the overpowering black and white aura of this look.
