{Culture.} Sheena Inspires Me!

Since I began my blog, I’ve always made a conscious effort to post original non-redundant content. I know theres that saying there’s nothing new under the sun, but I think I do a good job at it. But of course theres always an exception to the rule, like what I’m posting today. Fader Magazine Style Editor Chioma Nnadi is what I call a mentor in my head (someone that I do not know personally but am inspired by and admire from afar). I love her style and her work equally. I logged onto her Fader Mag Style blog today and had a sort of deja vu of what I was seeing. I’ve briefly read about and even visited The Uniform Project Blog.  But after viewing the trailer that Sheena Mathieken put together, I knew I had to continue spreading the word about her selfless efforts. I want to make sure that you watch the video and get involved, so I’m not going to elaborate any further. Just watch and hopefully you’ll be touched like I’ve been!

NYFW ended yesterday, I was kind of sad to think about it :). I guess I’ve become accustomed to going from show to show everyday for the past week and now its done! Great times & memories were had, I’m grateful that I finally got a chance to experience NYFW. You can view my coverage on the shows I attended at She Breathes! I struggled with compiling my fits for the week. I didn’t know what to expect, how I should dress up or down in between. Ms. Shoo gave me a brief rundown of how things would be, but I guess you never know until you experience for yourself. After going to my first show, I decided that I would just be myself and not try to conform to any certain look/style that I saw.  I wore the outfit in the above pic. at my last show yesterday evening. I’ve never been a super glam type of girl. I’ve always been a tomboy and prefer to dress casually than to dress up. But as I get I older I find myself wanting to switch it up a bit at least occasionally. Here is the rundown of my fit:

Thrifted Bailey Fedora

Vintage Harve Bernard Cropped Blazer

DIY Fringe Necklace (cut it from and old top)

Thrifted H&M Tunic

Aeoropostale Jeans

Vintage Hand Crocheted Bag

Vintage Bangle

Target Ankle Boots
