I’m making a 10x10 capsule wardrobe for myself and to kick off the DIY Capsule Challenge, I decided to make a satin camisole first. It’s a good style basic that you can layer over anything in the fall or wear along in the spring. It’s an essential for everyone’s closet. Click to see how I designed and made one for myself.Read More
Last week, Cardi B. dropped the video for her song, “I Like It” ft. J. Balvin and Bad Bunny from her debut album, Invasion of Privacy. With my first listen of the song, I enjoyed it. It was one of the songs I had on repeat after completing my first listen of the album. Love and I even discussed what she and the record label should do in order to make it a summer banger and that was to remix it by putting J.Lo or Pitbull on it. To be honest, that was Love’s suggestion, not mine, but I was here for the Pitbull mix more than the J.Lo’s. But now I have to admit J.Lo’s song “Dinero” ft. Cardi B. is nice too. Anyways, that’s not the route they took...at least not yet...and we received a colorful and warm video with Miami feels.Read More
A fashion mood board created by Los Angeles fashion designer, Delaya Briscoe. Using references of 1970's fashion and style, the Black Panther Party, Pam Grier, black women with afros, classic Cadillac coupe devilles and New York summers, the images come together as a celebration of strong black women despite the struggles around them. The edge and strength is in the black and brown tones and the warmth and joy is brought on by the orange and yellow. Using leather, fur and other textured fabrics, combined with the color palette, this mood is great for fall and winter fashion.Read More

There are times...special occasions rather...where I often want to make myself something to wear but then I don't. Or, I start to make myself something and I just never finish it. The latter is what normally happens.
My friends from college are throwing me a baby shower (the first of the three to four because I'm blessed) and I think I want to get a little fancy with it.
I was kind of told at the beginning of planning it that the color scheme was black and white, which I love. It was semi confirmed because I saw one if my friends posting black and white party pictures on good ol' Pinterest. This could still be a strong assumption but I'm running with it.Read More
