As I waked in the Harlem Magic Johnson theatre excited to see I Am Not Your Negro I was greeted by an audience where majority of the faces that didn’t look like mine. First, upset by the face that these people were possible here to find out “Why I Am Not Their Negro.” Second, thinking are the faces that do look like mine not interested? Or are they unaware of the cinematic prowess on its opening weekend? But nonetheless I sit and wait for my friends to arrive, the previews start and the opening scene to take the screen.
Spring is around the corner, which means the stores are starting to release their spring collections. But here in New York, it’s still cold. So I’ve taken this dress from Anna Sammarone’s spring collection and layered it so I can wear it now. I layered the maxi wrap dress with a turtle neck and sheer tights. Because it’s still like 4 layer minimum weather, I opted for my oversized navy coat and for a little-added warmth I added chunky socks.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and I thought I’d revisit one of my old posts, Valentine’s Day Couple’s Outfits Lookbook. With the help of my friend John and Media Playground PR, I created 3 couple’s looks for 3 different date occasions. Living in New York now I see these are definitely more for a California type February.
CASUAL DAY DATE:
This look is perfect for a laid back date to a pizza parlor, the movies or even an amusement park. To achieve my look I paired colorful high waisted skinny jeans with a crop top and textured parka. I kept my shoes and accessories simple as I was mixing prints on top with my shirt and jacket. For his look I anchored his print on the bottom and kept the top half pretty simple with a colored denim jacket and white tee. The key to this look is being comfortable and having fun, mix prints, try and bold print or colored denim.
