STRIPES x MYTH HOUSE IN 2 WAYS: TOMBOY COOL

Dear Diary,

Back at it again in sunny cali-for-ni-a. Super corny…I know. What a bitter sweet feeling it is to be back in my second home, considering that I was gone  for over 3 months. Bitter is when you are missing  your hustle and bustle life in Ghana, and let’s not forget the unbearable jet lag  you encounter post-travel…EEK! Sweet is having access to brunch at any hour of the day, getting to spend time with your cray cray cousins, and catching up with your friends. I promise it isn’t what I do all day. This is just to list a few. LOL!

Now that we have gotten that out of the way, let’s talk about my look. I have been obsessing over this gold envelope purse by Myth House for months! It happens to be one of the best pieces I brought back from Ghana with me.  I can’t wait to get my hand on other styles. Until then, I will be showing you two looks rocking my  caged baby  along with the striped crop top in two ways.

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”

Casual Get-Up

Dear Diary,

We had a nice one in the Los Angeles area yesterday. The weather was sunny with a breeze, which made it easy for me to throw on this v neck sweater. My job consumes my life throughout the week, and that is why I use my free time to catch up on all errands. Comfort is very important to me when I am on-the-go, so I paired my sweater with a high waist denim pant and loafers. I know, I know, they are the same pants from my last post. I couldn’t help it, they are easy to run around in. To add some character, I went with a mint clutch and oversize clear frames. Let’s not forget the red lip for drama.
