Fenty Fridays🍾

Merry Fenty Friday! This look has to be one of the many outfits that exploit Rihanna’s strengths. I admire how she makes minimalist elements seem so complex. This look lives in the styling. The ‘tude is just the icing on the cake.

Dutch Motel 📻

His eyes. Oh, God, his realm of roses. A spectrum so broad- no force could obtain. 70s misfit. Shaggy rugs. A cheap bottle of Merlot. Kaleidoscope kisses. Craved like a hieroglyphic. He was her warrior. Plummeting grains of virtue into a dust oriented cushion…seven dollars and thirty one cents. I saw the light bulb touch the birch-wood floral. I could feel a thick metallic wind roar. Breaking the depths. A rugged man with a festive beard. His cheeks of stained silicone lipstick. He had shipped off his soul. He was a white man with a grip of steel. “Who put cookies in the watering bucket?” A naive response. “A wicked man with a lustful cavity.”

Hello? Operator? Yeah, I would like to know how Rihanna does it ! For me, the star of the show is definitely the 3.1 Phillip Lim jacket. This color palette has me on cloud 9. Standing ovation Riri.

The Style Files: A bit of a ‘Dexter’ !👾

Dexter (80’s lingo): Intelligent, but not overly nerdy.

Welcome to ‘The Style Files’ ! A series where I propose outfit ideas. I present to you a convenient, vibrant, and easy to replicate 80’s look. Today we will be working with basic closet staples: a hat, t-shirt, jean, and shoe. I used orange, green, pink, and blue for my color palette. My look featured a fedora, gold bug eye readers, a sporty logo tee, a light mineral wash mom jean, and a statement colored sneaker.

Q: So, how do you get the look?

A: Think of 4 colors to create your desired color palette. Next, add a metallic accessory to accent it. (I chose to add a gold reader for my metallic piece.) Lastly, find a hat, a t-shirt, jeans, and a statement shoe. You can be as flexible as you want with this look. You can interchange and alter this look in order to suit your preference. The options are endless.

Might I suggest?…

  • Dad cap + sunnies + vintage band tee + boyfriend jeans + converse
  • Fedora + over-sized cardigan + t-shirt + mom jeans + sneakers
  • No hat + graphic tee + skinny jeans + faux fur sliders

Vine Vixen.🎷

Velvet vines features an androgynous, rustic look. I imagine an autumn evening. A bonfire near Lake Tahoe. She’s laughing on a log, fidgeting with her pendant. Her name is called. And she looks over her shoulder. The light from the flames highlight her face. A Billie Holiday record plays in the distance.
