Collaborations, Personal Style

Icon

So I finally faced my fashion fear which is wearing slim fitted dresses. Being a tomboy, you become so used to the baggy attire and sneakers that you forget that heels and tight dresses existed. To help step outta my cozy gyal zone, Icon, a trendy clothing and swimwear brand, reached out to me to […]

Tha Blue Wall Treatment

Taking it back to 06, when Bubba Sparxxx, Chingy, and Yung Joc were hip-hop household names and Cassie topped the charts with her infamous Me & U track before falling into the arms of Diddy. Unfortunately, they failed to remain consistent with their music and went down the route towards reality TV, rehab, or a […]

SZN 3

This past weekend I had a conversation via DM with a photographer out in Calgary. We then discussed the hype behind the Yeezy’s and I felt out of place when I told him that I wasn’t down with the Yeezy sneaker wave. It seems that everybody, their dad, and their dad’s dad have hopped on […]

Guess those Spanish classes in university paid off for I can still remember a few words as well as the conjugation. You’re probably wondering what the heck Amarillo is or means, it means yellow in Spanish. I kid you not, upon seeing this jacket, the chorus to Gucci Mane’s Lemonade began to go off in my head. […]

Like Mike

  Well, kinda. If I hadn’t taken an L on the Royal Blue 1’s that dropped at the beginning of this month as well as the Bred 1’s that dropped last October, this look would be complete. I’d channel MJ to the fullest while wearing a gold chain like he did back in his early […]
