Textures + Tones

Fashion

One of my favorite things about my personal style is mixing prints, but layering textures adds another dimension to the party. Last year just before the “Paranormal” hit I was in the process of launching my clothing line “Structure + floë”. It came to a screeching halt when the entire world was put on pause. Soon after, my relationship with my production specialist turned out to not be a good fit & I was forced to outsource for another connection. Needless to say I am still in the process of getting my brand out there. Oh & believe me, it’s coming. The world id waiting on it! This Kimono is my first design.

This piece speaks to who I am as an individual! Daring yet calm! Ready to take risks yet organized. Matchy but not so much. When I say I can wear this with just about anything & it’ll still look like it’s meant to be!

I love supporting local designers from my hometown, Chicago. JFG/ Joe Fresh Goods is one of my favorites. His ability to be inclusive in streetwear is awesome. He’s worked with the lie of New Balance & Converse. This green 70’s style T-shirt is a part of his 2020 collection. The bold green is fly in itself but the message drives the fly ness home for me. Bigging up BLACKNESS will always have a special place n my heart!

I’m a sucker for menswear! It just works for me! These pants are from one of my favorite stores Urban Outfitters. The colors & print drew me in. I HAD to have em.

The Nike “Blazer” is one of my favorite sneaker silhouettes. Classic design & can be paired with just about anything. With an array of color ways to choose from, you cannot go wrong with having this sneaker at a part of your collection. It’s also a great collection starter!

“They say” (I don’t really care what anyone says but…you get my point) dont wait until a special event to dress up. One thing to always be is overdressed! These shades are just that! Takes any look completely over the top for no reason at all. But who needs a reason?

To top it all off I added one of my favorite purchases from last year! This flap saddle cow print bag from Shein! First of all…$17?!! Come on man! Ofcourse with all their constant coupons I only paid between $10-$14 for it! It’s a great piece. It’s neutral colors allow for me to wear it with so many looks. And people LOVE it!

You see how this all just works? That outfit you wanna wear but afraid it’ll be too much….WEAR IT & NEVERMIND THE PEOPLE!
