WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN?: style

19 Nov


I’m just going to knock all these backed-up Style Diaries out on this nice Saturday!

The last full week of October was a pretty good but a busy week.  On Tuesday I got a chance to see my artist and homie, DJ Dummy, kill it at Best Buy theater along side the amazing J.Cole, here in NYC.  On Thursday I went downtown to shoot the beautiful and quirky Amel Larrieux perform at City Winery; great show!  Other than that it was midterms week, and I was working like a maniac, so I kind of forgot to shoot a few outfits.  But hey, Tuesday‘s (this week’s fav outfit) blouse from my favorite vintage store Loveday 31, in Astoria,makes up for that.

Wearing such an adorned top, which i might add is so loose and comfortable, can dress anything up with very little effort.

Also the key for me this week, and most weeks, is wear a good lipstick color, when you’re half dead like I was Wednesday and Thursday, (i was actually dead on Friday) a little color goes a long away, it makes you appear more awake and put together than you actually are.


Happy Dressing!

HELM boots



In doing a random hotel search the other day, I came across a young shoe line called HELM.  HELM which is based in Austin, is designed by Austin-based designer Joshua Bingaman, hand-made in Istanbul, the leather comes from Holland and Australia, and the soles are from Italy and France.  When you wear these boots, which take 5 days to make, it’s sort of like having the world at your feet. Although the brand likes to think of it as if ‘you’re walking around in art.’

The HELM line is unisex; the Jarmon boots are what made me take notice of the line, and I want them!!  I think though that the line is a little too masculine to really be unisex, so the Jarmon or Jarmon Leather are the only boots I’d wear.  BUT I’d sure enough probably date the kind of guy that would rock HELM boots! ..they’re stylish, have personality, yet are solid and well made, plus there’s nothing like a guy who’s into their shoes!

For my New York heads you can find HELM boots at Dunderdon, they’re pricey so be prepared, but come on, they’re hand-made!
