MIISTA x DENIM CUT OFFS

Dear Diary,

I was so excited to receive my Miista Blaires in soft blue in the mail two months ago. They are so comfortable and fun! I finally got the perfect look to go with these sandals. Breezy silhouettes in hues of blues, with a dash of fuchsia on a hot summer day? Yes please!

FASHION FOR BREAKFAST: KDIA JEWELRY

Dear Diary,

Fashion for Breakfast is back, and this time’s guest of honor was none other than the beautiful and talented lady behind KDIA Jewelry, Kristen Noel Crawley. It was very inspiring listening to her speak about coming from a small town in Chicago to having her own brand of fine jewelry. She also mentioned how she wanted to make  pieces that would stay with you forever. I had the liberty of meeting with Kristen after the breakfast, and she is such a ball of energy and simply the sweetest! Can we just talk about how amazing she looks with that baby bump? Jeez!! To learn more about or if you are interested in shopping her pieces. Click here for further details.

KANYE WEST x STEVE MCQUEEN Pop-Up Installation at LACMA

Dear Diary,

It was pretty awesome being at the LACMA for Kanye West and Oscar-winning director Steve McQueen’s short film.  The duration of the film was 9 minutes, and shot in one take at a historic dockyard outside London. Despite my  inability to share  some images from the installation with you all, per Mr. West’s strict regulations of keeping the video exclusive to the museum, I want to compensate by leaving you with a quote from the director elaborating on the concept of the film ; “The video for Kanye West ‘s song All Day/I Feel Like That plays upon the relationship between the camera and the subject. As in a meeting between the bull and the matador, it remains unclear who chases whom within the arena. The roles of pursuer and pursued are at times inverted. Shot in a single 9 minute take with natural lighting and minimal context, McQueen accentuates the immediacy and intensity of the performer up close. Every movement of West is seen; every breath felt. It becomes apparent how the song itself fuels West’s performance, from the tornado in “All Day” to the vulnerability of I Feel Like That”

WHITE OVERALLS

Dear Diary,

I have been on a white overall hunt for quite some time, and thanks to the American Apparel factory, I found the perfect one for 20 bucks. It is the place to shop if you are woman on a budget. The zipper pocket detail placed on top of the bib gives it an edge. I love pockets! If I had my way, they would be placed on every article of clothing. I paired the overalls with a black knit collared shirt, gold earrings, and metallic loaffers. This is the perfect look to wear for brunch or a kickback in the summer.  What would you mix and match with this piece?

RED BOMBER JACKET

Dear Diary,

Bombers are usually styled as your casual outerwear. In my world, a bomber can be worn in many different ways at any occasion.  I purchased this red nylon piece at an American Apparel sale. You would have snagged it too , if you only had to pay $6. Another thing that immediately  drew me to it was that striking shade of red… Valentino red.  Rarely would you find a bomber jacket with snaps in this hue. A white button up for the back-to-schoolers, black pleated mini skirt and thigh high boots for your night out on the town with your girls. I might just create a post showing how else you can incorporate this piece into your everyday lifestyle. Stay tuned…
