Fashion Friday - Faux Flexin' (Issue 13 Winter Photo Shoot)

Find these winter looks in Issue 13 “Rebellion” of CopyWrite Magazine.

In collaborations with Distinctive Designs By Tomira & J' Adornments

Have you heard?! Did you know?! That’s right, issue 13 of Copywrite Magazine just dropped January 15! The anticipation has been killing me and I am proud to say, with the final results, everyone involved in this issue has exceeded my expectations substantially. Thanks to every single individual who made this issue happen!

I must say, learning that I would be in charge of styling the winter photoshoot definitely had me a bit shaken up! This would be the first time I had done anything this major. These are models who take their image seriously, a photographer who will have his name on his work, and an editor-in-chief who has their heart throughout the project. Yikes! 
Walking in and meeting the models as they arrived reiterated that nervousness all over again. That is until something started to happen. My mind went on autopilot and I began doing what I would do at home as I’m headed out with friends, grabbing clothes! One of the things I am most thankful for is the level of comfortability everyone brought onset. Once first looks went on, it was lights, camera, action! During this time, I took the opportunity to set up looks for the second half. Now the fun part was putting together the looks without necessarily knowing who would be wearing what! I must say, I cannot imagine anybody in anything other than what they wore. To have that freedom and still knowing that I was trusted to make this shoot happen, really humbled me and I will forever be grateful for the opportunity!

Recently I have been battling myself on if this is something I want to continue and with the release of issue 13, I feel like it was a confirmation that I was and still AM doing the right thing.
Thank you to our wonderful models who brought our vision to life:

And a special thank you to our photographer @seanchris for capturing everything through his lenses!

(LAST) Fashion Friday of 2018!

Looks like we made it! Its the end of the week and the end of 2018!!
I gotta give thanks to CopyWrite Magazine and the readers who have given me the opportunity to share my thoughts and ideas on fashion. The ride has been fun and I cannot wait to see what 2019 has in store!

This week, I bring you a mood I was feeling in Chicago. Yours truly took his drip to the Windy City!
Deep shades of green paired with black gave my step the swagger I needed to let my presence be known. My favorite part of this look was the gold chain you see hanging across my jacket. That is literally a wallet chain that i clipped to each side of my coat to give it a regal appearance.
As always, keep it saucy Milwaukee and be safe this holiday weekend! Make sure you give look no matter where you go and if haters can’t take it, you’re doing a great job!

Fashion Friday - "One Time for Sagittarius Season"

“One Time for Sagittarius Season “

Happy Friday Milwaukee! With 2018 coming to a close, that also means its time for my BIRTHDAY! The year has been so good to me with joining CopyWrite, having the opportunity to style some of Milwaukee’s finest, and collaborating with creative giants. It has been a great ride! 
This weekend I am celebrating my 26th and as your fashion ambassador, its only right that I step out in style! The vibe was black and gold to represent the royalty we are. This shirt has been laying in wait in my closet for such an occasion and you can’t go wrong pairing your statement pieces with all black! Hear me and hear me good! Your look can say a lot when you bring simplicity.

Fashion Friday - Locally Fresh 2018 Pop Up Vendor and Fashion Showcase (Fall)

Did somebody say Friday??? Better yet, Fashion Friday!? Cheers to the weekend Milwaukee! 

“I can’t believe we made it! This is what we thankful for!” -The Carters 


In case you missed it, I want to take you all back to last weekend. Last Sunday was the “Locally Fresh 2018 Pop Up Vendor and Fashion Showcase” hosted by The Classic Shoppe & Fresh Bucks Custom Designs (& of course sponsored in part by CopyWrite Magazine). This event was the perfect setting for local designers to show us what they have available and overall I was quite pleased! Ranging from kids to extended sizes, the fashion show debuted everything from graphic tees, to tracksuits to scarves and leg warmers. With winter approaching quickly, these entrepreneurs brought the heat to the Astor Hotel ballroom! 

(It was definitely an upgrade from the last show, and the local love was real).

Events like this are important for us creatives because it encourages collaboration! There is no competition and egos are left at the door. My personal favorite thing about the InstaMeet is meeting other creatives who are passionate about their art, no matter what their avenue is.
