Okay, so a few days ago I attended an amazing cocktail party at Decades, hosted by costume designer/stylist B. Akerlund and of course Cameron Silver and Christos Garkinos of DECADES. Â We were there to celebrate the mind blowing work of Swedish designer,Â Bea Szenfeld. Â And WOW! What a treat! Â She createsÂ sculptural clothing made of paper and entirely by hand. Â It’s high-art through theÂ lensÂ of fashion…and did I mention they’re made WITH JUST PAPER!? Seeing her work up close was amazing, the craftsmanship, the imagination and the obvious time spent was really something special. But I have to say it was the video of her Fashion Show that really blew my mind. Â To see her creations in motion is really something to behold.
Expressing Your Inner on the Outer
When I can’t sleep sometimes I turn to Instagram. It’s not the smartest way to induce the z’s but sometimes it does lead to inspiration… during my most recent insomnia spell I happened upon Tamu McPherson, and OMG she’s incredible! Â I mean look at her style! Â She’s inspired a burst of clothing inspiration. Â I was particularly into her baggy sweater and skirt combo so I dove into my closet and emerged with this interpretation. Also for your viewing pleasure, I’ve included a collage of some of Tamu’s other incredible looks. I mean, COME ON!!! I’m sure you will see me in my interpretations sometime soon. Check out her blog.
You all are at it again…asking fun questions! Â This time around we’re talking about style, KISS t-shirts, movies, TV, and more KISS t-shirts (seriously, I love this KISS t-shirt!). Â Anyways, here’s the newest installment ofÂ You Asked, I Answered.Â Â Thanks for always asking such wonderful questions. Â PS. I can’t wait to hear how you describe my style, tehehehe.
Okay, so I have a confession to make: our live-styling session on Instagram was insanely fun for me! Â You guys left such thoughtful (and sometimes hilarious) comments, and I gotta say you all have amazing taste! Â I mean some of the pins your posted to my group board on Pinterest were absolutely gorgeous! Â Anyways, I loved all the looks you voted on for Black Girls Rock, so to recap all of the fun I put together this little video of all the hilarious moments from our online dress-up session. Â Thanks forÂ participating!
While we are on the style kick (you know with me asking your help in choosing my BGR looks and all) I thought I might share someÂ behind the scenes goods from a recent, impromptu photo shoot. Â For no other reason than for the funÂ I had with the beautiful, andÂ insanelyÂ talented photographerÂ Simin Erbel. Oh, how I love having my picture taken (which I am sure you have noticed by now). Well, this shoot was way cooler than the “selfie” shoots Â I do myself, and I just adore the resulting pictures. Â I mean my goodness, Simin you’re amazing.
Fun fact: Simin’s husband,Â Cory Becker, accompanied her on the shoot (you can see him assisting in the video, lol), but it turns out he’s a fantastic musician. Â So we thought it’d be fun to use one of his songs as the soundtrack for this video. Â I mean could this couple be anymore talented?
