Hey Guys! Back in late Spring of 2012 I assisted fashion photographer, Jason Mickle, on a fashion story that recently appeared in West East Magazine. The story is loosely based around the crucifixion of Christ, and paintings depicting that story. For some reason it’s called Step Into Wonder (I’m not sure why) but the spread came out beautifully. I always learn so much when I work with Jason!
Here are a couple of pictures from the shoot, to see all of them you can visit here.

Thanksgiving Day week! Boy was I looking forward to a much needed break from work and school, and my trip down to DC to visit my best friend for the holiday’s festivities. I remember this week pretty clearly, because i tried a fashion experiment with myself. Basically I always visualize outfits, usually they end up being items that I don’t actually own, so that’s usually how I decide what will be my next purchase for my closet. This week though, well really Monday and Tuesday I visualized what I would want to wear ideally based on my mood, and figured out what I had in my closet that would most closely emulate that. I liked the results a lot, but by Wednesday I had a midterm to study for and packing to do, so I couldn’t put that much thought into recreating my wardrobe. I’m going to practice this method more in the Winter and see what I come up with.
This is a short week in my Style Diary, by the time I Continue reading
My friend Raedawn Johnson was featured in Essence.com! Raedawn is the founder of Orglamic Beauty and a celebrity makeup artist here in NYC, we’ve collaborated a couple of times, and I’m so happy that she’s getting some shine. She’s such a great, energetic soul! Check out her great story, as well as a few tips to you aspiring makeup artists.
Here’s and excerpt:
” I was 21 years old, had just landed in New York City and was laser-focused on accomplishing one goal—becoming a well-known, well-respected TV and film actress. After five years of hearing casting directors tell me I didn’t “look ethnic enough” or my skills weren’t “good enough,” I decided I needed a plan B.” Go to Essence.com to read the rest of the Raedawn’s story.
I took a little break on posting my Fall Style Diary, but I never stopped shooting! Over the next couple weeks, as the chill starts to set in, I’ll show you how I warmed things up, some of the time, this Fall. Also I’m looking forward to expanding Style Diary, and What Gets You Movin’, in general. 2013 is going to be a good one!
This particular week in November there was no mood, it was rather random actually, but at least the weather was decent, hence me showing my gams! I remember this week though, it was close to midterms, as always I barely slept, and on Tuesday I found out I was showing in a group show that Friday. The show was the 3rd annual Night of Arts in Chelsea.
Monday i rocked Continue reading
After a week working from home and a week off from school because of Sandy, I was ready to put some clothes on and start the week, well that’s what I thought. I’m not sure in what ways the storm affected you, but for me it created a reflective, even somewhat somber tone on things that made me put some things into perspective.
It made not want to post anything to the blog because it just seemed trivial and silly, and I really didn’t care about dressing and style. For this week I was predominately focused on my photography and video work, and finalizing the details of going to Art Basel in Miami.
Monday I got into take care of business mode, with my new Continue reading
Hey Guys! So I’ve been shooting but not posting, but the pics are coming. As most of you know, NYC was hit by Hurricane Sandy. This post is pre-Sandy, and by the weekend I was locked in my apartment bracing for the storm. Thankfully nothing major happened where I lived, but none the less we were all affected by the disaster, so much so, that I didn’t leave the house for all of Week 5!
Mondays tend to be a relaxed day or a day I dress to Continue reading
By the end of last week, I decided I need to add more color in my wardrobe. I can’t say a completely succeeded in that, but hey it was an attempt. Right now black is just on my mind, although I am in search of a nice brown leather jacket…but that’s not exactly color in my wardrobe is it? lol
This was another week of playing catch up and no sleep, I figure if I go 2 more weeks hard, I should catch up on work things…so bare with me as I look exhausted in these and upcoming pics. Really this week was about details, just to add a little something to an outfit, and anything that is quick an easy.
Monday I was ready to conquer the world, so Continue reading
