Just chill

Yesterday was Day 2 of Boston Calling and it was a super chill day and the vibes were good. I’m certain that Mother Nature bringing us sun was one of the reasons. Barely any room to walk, I tip toed and zigzagged around napping, laying and eating folks on the ground. A good problem to have seeing that the day before laying down wasn’t even an option.  I set out to capture some street style, ask questions and head out, but I ended up having genuine and purposeful convos with folks and made that priority over exchanging an IG or email. Of course that was done once or twice, but the point is sometimes you set out for one thing and end up getting something totally left and heart filling at that.  I’d like to speak for everyone there and say that we were being medicated. Music does something to the soul that indescribable and only a music lover can non verbally understand. In theses last two days, not once was there a fight or …

Boston Calling  Street style

Can I just say  that yesterday was like the best day ever?! The best. I had never been to Boston Calling until they this year. I was absolutely bummed that Solange didn’t make it , but there was so much more to look forward to and boy was it lit! I will go deeper into the performers in my personal style post. What I love the most is that the festival is three days and you can buy tickets separately for each day…. even at the gate! 🙌🏾🙌🏾  You know I couldn’t  attend without covering fashion. So yesterday felt like New York Fashion Week again with me approaching people to ask permission to take their pics.  Everyone was so sweet and agreed….Dope vibe dope style. It lives here in Boston …👇🏾 Loved this bomber and how she effortlessly layed the cross body bag. @sal.florentina Yes to all of these colors and the pigtail bun. @shell.yahHow cute is this Coachella Mami @JamieptranIn Living color @flwrsandfernsShe came to slay and stay dry! @juliaathy🦄 eyesCool kid.“I’m from New York” 😎 …

Gingham Mami- all the must buys!

I heard gingham is “trending” aka they pulled it out the classic archives. Here’s the thing… it’s at least the 5th or 6th time it’s been re-trending since I was like 8/9 years old. How do I remember ? Because my aunt who was my fashion icon had a beautiful flowy  gingham red dress that was off the shoulder. That was my intro to gingham and since then have been a fave. BUT let’s talk about quality because some prints are just plain ugly and very cheap looking. Here’s my aunt in “94”with the dress!! She just sent it.(I never forget a dope outfit!) I love you toooo  much to let you go and  pick up just any kind so I picked a few faves that are classic and will live past the “trend season”. When you shop with a purpose there is no going out of style. These two pics are styled by me from an event I had with Shake Shack Newbury called “Shakes & Silhouettes” last month.   *pic credentials on IG* …

Tunnel Vision 

“My momma told me boy make a decision right now I gotta keep a tunnel vision”~ Kodak Black The goal is to do it all at the same damn time. Says the princess in the fairytale being fed grapes with her foot up with no kids lol. When I’m killing it in one area another area is neglected at least a little bit. I have been booked with styling gigs and had to pick my head back up to touch up on other things in life. Like the gym, gaining weight(yes because my butt is getting small from working a lot and not eating enough.) “I like nice curves and I cannot lie”😂😂👌🏾🙌🏾😀 When I think of tunnel vision I think about my college days when I was working a full time job and getting good grades and starting a side business. Those days remind me that I got comfortable because I can do wayyy more with a little more planning and focus. We need a reminder sometimes.So anywho I’ve been thinking about tunnel vision …

Style Meet Up Ash & Rose Boutique

Happy Tuesday!!  Can we all say an Amen for this Summer like weather?  I mean let’s not forget that just the other day it felt like Winter.  Last week Wednesday we were blessed with 85 degrees and I held my first Style Meet up at Ash & Rose . It was the perfect weather to break out a new meet up and for attendees to sip and shop! After Meeting Co-owner Mary, visiting the space and working with their clothes I knew the meet had to be there.  There is something in this boutique for every Woman. Whether it be jewelry, statement dresses or 9-5 chic…Ash & Rose got us covered! The icing on the cake is the overall visual in the boutique.  There is a lot of inventory, but the set up makes it welcoming and unique so shopping remains fun.  Little things I tell ya.
