Fashion Rebel -Mixed Prints

Dear Diary,

During my Boston stay, my sister and i went for a stroll in the Charles River Park. The scenery is filled with profound bliss!! I took numerous photos, and totally forgot how much time had gone by. It's very easy to get lost in your thoughts out there.

Lady vs. Androgyny

Dear Diary,

My apologies for all the slacking in blog posts. My older sister just graduated from law school  in Boston woop woop!! And trust is very easy to forget about your other priorities,when celebrating with family and friends lol. Oh and major shout out to the class of 2011; high school,undergrad and masters program. I will soon post photos from the festivities,but for the time being here are a few of me. Enjoy!

                  For the graduation i wanted to have a classic ladylike look and wear a tapered over the
                  knee dress. The thing about long tapered dresses is...they can be very boring! So i decided
                  to keep the front simple,add layered pipes,and a cut out detail to the back of the dress
                  for that "WOW" factor. My court pumps are from Zara.


 I wore this jumpsuit  to dinner with the fam,which is also designed by me. I like to try different things,
so i decided why not go for a more androgynous look with the high neck collar bib and tie
 But i still kept it feminine with my NARS velvet-matte lip pencil and red bow wedges by Qupid

Hope everyone is enjoying their memorial day weekend.

My New York

Dear Diary,

During Africa week, i  was asked to participate in an annual fashion show 2 months ago. It took place at Cornell University, New York. It was such a great opportunity to showcase my designs and meet some amazing people.
All the organizers and models were very pleasant and made me feel so comfortable. I had a blast!!
Here are a few photos that are long overdue, hope you enjoy them!
