Baby Pink

Pink is probably the most fun color to wear for me. That and yellow, which I don't have a lot of. I've grown tired of wearing black (again) so I've been buying colorful things to brighten up my closet. This top I got in Hong Kong from a store called Monki is so dreamy...and I fell in love with that place. I'm pretty sure I was in there for 3 hours one day just trying on clothes. And the skirt, although way too small for me now, was cute enough for the moment. It's time to sell the bad boy. 

This day was particularly ridiculous because I ended up straight up falling on the concrete  because women's shoes are unkind and a little bit The Worst sometimes. My sister laughed at me because she's really supportive and laughs at people's pain, but I joined her so it was okay.

Talk to you guys again soon!

Top - Monki // Skirt - Romwe // shoes - GoJane // bag - my sister's

What's old is new again

  The Powersuit

So I'm back from Hong Kong! more on that later :) I've been into power dressing and suits lately as I've been studying different eras in fashion - from ancient Sumerian times to the Renaissance and onto to the the 70's, 80's, 90's and early 00's. I get endless inspiration from them all, but I was really obsessed with the 70's and 80's in regards to women's suits.

 
  I like how inspiration can be a bit indirect and spontaneous, or purposeful and specific. I think I was indirectly inspired in this case to wear a suit when I decided to go into my mom's closet and try something on I felt would be bold - not really intending to wear a suit. but once I had it on I couldn't help but think of all ways my mom styled this sucker in the 90's. Then I began to think of Bianca Jagger's wardrobe from the 70's, and literally every 80's blazer womankind has ever adorned. Dressing boldly is so interesting and underestimated, I think it's fun to do it in a personal way instead of relying on trends to make an outfit unique - implementing old trends + new trends, whatever, and honoring if it's your style and you feel comfortable in it is a really powerful part of fashion.  it's safe to say I plan to wear a lot more suits in the near future.

climbed a mountain and turned around

I'm in my room listening to a shuffle of Fleetwood Mac and my old homies Paramore, they're having a concert on my birthday in Atlanta and I'm psyched - my love for them is pretty equal to my love for Beyonce', which is y'know a lot. So I really really hope I'll be able to see them

I bought this long green pinafore dress like last month in a mall called Dragon Center in Sham Shui Po. that mall is huge for no reason and I get lost there sometimes but it's fine. I'm super stoked about all of my purchases in HK so far, I have a lot of ideas for shoots with the clothes I've bought but I'm gonna wait til I get back to the U.S to do most of them. I'll be working on a few photoshoots here too though with some friends in the next couple weeks so I hope I don't like..run out of creativity

see you all soon <3

green things


Hi! I don't have wifi in my apartment currently and I have to go catch a bus back to it in a few minutes so this will be short n sweet! or probably just short. I'm sorry (mostly to myself) for my sloppy ensemble but that's to be expected when you walk up a mountain in heat and don't have mirrors nearby I think. Hope you're all well and doing good things and loving yourselves, will be back soon. Gonna go read like 80 books at once

I wear my sunglasses at night

Jacket - Maple Fashion // faux leather skirt - 6ixty8ight

I can't remember even like...half of this day and it was only about four days ago (or 6, who's counting). What I do remember is coming back to my apartment after class and then ending up in Tuen Mun with my fly 2nd OOTD. The picture up there with the big M is reminding me that one of my roommates and I also went to McDonalds. I haven't eaten there in 7 years legit except for getting a mcflurry every couple years, it was good but I got spicy chicken and had regret. Spicy food is chill or whatever but lately it's been making me tear up while I eat and that's not fun or ideal?? I'm actually over spicy food at least for the next 2 months so like...sorry to all my POC ancestors but I can't deal.

Hong Kong // Photo Diary

I am currently in Hong Kong, it's so amazing here. Most of these pictures were taken on rainy days, so I'm sorry for the gloom -- but really it looks beautiful here whether it's sunny or raining. it is making me reflect more than I usually do on how so many people are connected to their culture. as a Black girl I'm definitly connected to Black culture and Black American culture, but the culture that I have now is not 100% the culture of my ancestors, and that makes me feel disconnected sometimes. Like I was born from nowhere. but at most, I have the pride in knowing my lineage and that's something to embrace And somewhere start from.

If any of you ever have a chance to come here you should!! just don't be surprised if you end up wanting to pack up and move here too <3
