Kanye’s Kollection

  During New York Fashion Week, Kanye West debuted his first collection in collaboration with Adidas Originals. In my opinion, the collection should have been “Kanye’s Kollection” to follow in Kim K’s footsteps. I initially questioned Yeezy’s rise into the high fashion world, but the collection’s slideshow Style.com proved otherwise. I felt a sudden urge to go camping or do something adventurous in the skin tone athletic wear. Spring Break wearing Kanye x Adidas Originals is calling me. Rather than a traditional line up of well-known models, Kanye arranged his models in rows ...

Velvet is my Valentine

Valentine’s Day is a day for the couples and hopeless romantics of the world. While I probably fall into the latter category, there’s always the question of what to wear. Something seductive because it’s supposedly a day of love? Or more of a girl’s night outfit? I went somewhere in between as the title suggests--velvet is my valentine. Because a groundhog saw a dark silhouette of himself on the ground, the weather is cloudy with a chance of rain for the next six weeks and I’m layering with turtlenecks. And ...

Unofficial Best Dressed List: Grammys 2015

            The 57th Annual Grammy Awards premiered on February 8 (Sunday) and with it, celebrities premiered their gowns and suits on the infamous red carpet. I didn’t even bother to add Beyoncé to my own biased best-dressed list because at this point, it’s basically just assumed that she’s the reigning number one. Without further ado, I present—in no particular order—The Unofficial 57th Annual Grammy Best-Dressed List. I’ll start with the one that was made into the most memes: Rihanna wearing Giambattista Valli frequently referred to as a quinceñera dress or Princess ...

On Faux Fur

California chooses juice cleanses and almond-milk lifestyles and New York switches to faux fur and vegan leather. It’s a new era in which people have become both environmentally and fashionably conscious. Nevertheless, real leather is still a thing and mink coats remain prevalent at Fashion Weeks around the globe. People who wear those mink coats, however, should not have red paint thrown on them when they walk into a city (they probably spent half their life savings on that coat to look like a million bucks because that’s how much ...

New Year’s Blues

    The title of this post originated from the color of my sweater and disclaimer: it has nothing to do with sorrow of the New Year. This post, in fact, is dedicated to the opposite of sorrow, but the optimism and potential that comes with every clean slate. With this, I bid farewell to all of 2014 with a few words. 2014 was a year to learn. I ended the year with a new understanding of who I am as an individual, but also knowledge of who the people were that ...

Model Off-Duty ft. Cara Delevingne

Sometime last year, Cara Delevigne was photographed wearing black Beats by Dre and a sweater. So naturally, I bought black Beats by Dre and a sweater, wore them together, and called it a day. Also naturally, I cannot locate the picture of Cara and the aforementioned outfit. Therefore, this post looks as if I secretly DJ on the weekends somewhere in New York and rock the sporty trend with sweatpants that you don’t actually wear around the house. Fall is supposed to be cold. I’m pining for dark rain clouds that ...
