Classic Button-Up

Another fun collaboration with RedHedCreativeStudio project #ChiChiInTheCity #ChicagoStreetStyle. We shot this entire look at the Dusable bridge, the bridge carries Michigan Avenue across the main stem of the Chicago River in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Unfortunately for us it was also Taste of Chicago weekend so you can imagine how crowded and busy downtown was. We still managed to get some good wide range shot without anyone in the background.

Portrait PhotographyMy look for the day was this lightweight semi fitted short sleeve button down shirt, perfect for sunny days or warm nights. It goes perfectly with jeans or a fitted skirt. Portrait PhotographyMy button up turned into a sleevless shirt, thanks to my handy dandy scissors.

Cut out sleeves, stitch up your hem. Attach sleeves on to both sides as a waist belt.

Never underestimate the power of a button down. Now double that statement when it comes to a classic stripe button down shirt. Button down shirt is one of the most versatile garments a woman could own, from it’s ability to challenge the vibe you are trying to set to overall changing your whole look.

The versatilely can go from high fashion, casual cute, preppy, to the clean crisp look.

Graphic Essential Tee

Your choice in graphic tee can say a lot about you. Perhaps you’re a vintage-Ramones-tee kind of girl or a high-fashion animal lover à la Kenzo or Givenchy type.

THE BIG 25

If you really know me you would know that I usually plan and go a bit over board for my birthday.

I get all excited and cray cray  about it, countdown the days, bug my sisters and friends with all my silly ideas, go out dancing and head home in the early hours, and basically act like its a super long holiday.

This year I kept things much more mellow if  I do say so myself, I celebrated with friends and family I mean that was the  best gift anyone could ask for.

PICTURE TIME.

Yall should know he didn’t just sit and agree to a damn photoshoot lmfaoooooo…..The story behind these pictures was; I simply was begging Jolo to take my picture and this nice middle aged caucasian lady heard me and answered my cries. She suggested we both take pictures together and even lead us to diff locations hehehehe …. Low-key she gave us a little interview about our relationship and it turned out she is a photographer and everyday womens journalist of real life stories. She also featured us on her IG page with a nice caption.
