Electric Lady


I put this outfit together at the last minute when I received an invite to the Janelle Monae concert. I wasn’t to familiar with her music but familiar with her style.  Janelle has a very diverse audience.  My friends said they were dressing up like Janelle and that’s something I never do.  Her theme colors are black & white and by coincidence I bought this black & white striped skirt earlier that same day, so I was like what the heck. Throw on that skirt and grab a bow tie from the fashion district & have some fun.  When I bought the skirt I thought it was a pencil skirt.  I had no idea that it had a split in it but I wore it anyway.  That was a fun night & I got a chance to put together an outfit I would never have thought of putting together and I liked it :-)


Crochet & Boots

I love this look. I found this brown suede skirt years ago at a second hand store.  I love the detail and the shape. I’ve wore it like one time.  For my “Mona Lisa” video premiere screening a few years ago and today.  I love the crochet neck warmer.  I got this from my friend Tawny’s boutique for the “Afro City” web series.  It keeps you so warm.  I guess it keep all the body heat in.  I felt the difference instantly when I took it off.   Got the cowboy boots second hand also.  I just pair these items with a plain brown tank and there you have an outfit unlike any other…lol



Happy New Year!



Happy New Year!  I am looking forward to sharing an exciting 2014 with you and experiencing things I’ve never experienced before.  Thank you for joining me on my journey.  I started to stay at home this new years but decided to get dress and hangout in downtown LA.  I had a couple of outfits designated for this occasion (A brown leather dress or a a jean bustier dress with beige tulle for the skirt half) Didn’t end up wearing either.  I decided on a black lace top with black fur that I wore for new years over 10 years ago for a new years party at Raleigh studios in Hollywood and a black tulle with a tutu from Halloween that I wore under it to fluff it out.  I loved my outfit and it was fun getting dress.  These veils are available in my online store. So me and my girlfriend Fatima walked to LA live and hung out there for a few and went to Lucky Strikes because they always have a free new years party. It was a little early, the DJ was spinning and a few people were setting up their bottle service tables and bowling.   We decided to head over to the Bunker Hill bar & Grill to grab something to eat.  They had a DJ and a nice crowd of people so we stayed there and brought in the new year.  It was $10 and they give you free champagne for the midnight toast.  I love their crispy garlic brussel sprouts. After midnight we went to my girlfriends’ Nikki’s house. She had family and friends over. She has this awesome loft downtown.  We laughed, shared our goals for 2014 and took a bunch of pictures.  I met the Rapper YoYo (google her) at Nikki’s house that night.  She was real cool and we talked about working together on a photo project this year.  So that was my new years and this is what I wore.  I started a tradition to do a new years shoot every year with my new years outfit but I didn’t do one last year (so much for the tradition) But here a shot of my new years outfit the year before  taken by my girlfriend Angi :-)
