Sneakers or Heels?

Have you ever had to go from a daytime to a nighttime look? were you given enough time to get ready? Sometimes  life gets in the way of our slay which is why we always have to be prepared. Sporting a look that can either be dressed up or down is an all-time favorite of…

Lady in Color

“Color! What a deep and mysterious language. The language of dreams”- Paul Gauguin It had always been a fantasy of mine to take pictures with an amazing backdrop like the one the national harbor provides (like something out of a movie), dressed like a lady, and you know, just strutting away. I was so glad…

For the Love of Bright Colors

This Summer, I dare to wear colors. I have always admired bright colors, especially on darker skin tones. Between the popping melanin and the vibe of confidence what’s not to love?  Although I am obsessed with my blacks and grays, I have found that colors make me feel more powerful. Wearing bright colors always gives…

Beach Please ;)

So, I’ve been in DC this past weekend with my squad and it’s been so much fun! I can’t believe how long it’s been. The weekend has been filled with so many random activities as we tried to lump five years of missed time into one weekend. Of course a must for us was to…

School Girl Swag

Michigan is finally getting its act together!!! We have had great weather for a week straight and I am pretty excited about that 😀 😀 because it means I can bring out all my summer pieces and put away all the winter ones! Sadly this summer, I won’t be putting away any winter clothes cause…

Sleeveless Flannel & Crop Top

This shoot taught me a lot about posture when taking pictures. My photographer was not playing any games. He really wanted me to learn how to stand tall and lift my head. We talked about confidence a lot and I am glad that I learned all that I did. I had fun taking these pictures,…

Fine Wine

My Favorite Color is Burgundy (or wine) which is why I am completely in love with this look.I wanted a color that could bring out the richness of the wine which is why I decided to go for a nude (I think it looks more cream though) pair of shoes. It complements the color without…

Wai So Earthy

I put this outfit together because I wanted to work with the colors of similar palettes (earthy hues). The ensemble is plain and simple which is also another reason why I love this look. I really just wanted to feel pretty while trying to not overdo it and I captured that feeling with this look….

Street Casual

This was such a fun shoot that I did with my photographer (Segun of SNVROY). Since this look is so casual, I decided to go for an urban setting.  Segun and I brainstormed for places with lots of  buildings and we decided downtown was obviously the ‘urbanest’ place to go, so we ended up at…
