WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: GossYp and Aglit Italy

28 Nov

Gossyp Jai Nima Idowu JADO Images Fashion Style What Gets You Movin

I’m always looking for people, things, videos…anything, that inspires me.  Inspiration creatively, visually, mentally, spiritually, just something that moves me. I’ve been fortunate to not only meet, but sometimes shoot many who move me in some way. Because of this, I’m starting a new interview series where we get a chance to speak with some of these people who have moved me in some way and see what they have going on.


For the 1st interview post, I spoke with female music duo, GossYp. I’ve had the pleasure of shooting these beautiful sisters, Adina and Amina, a few time this year. Not only are these Brooklyn born, Long Island-bred girls, chill, down to earth, and nice, they are Continue reading

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Fall Style Diary (week 4)

26 Nov

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

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: style diary

18 Oct


In Week 2 for my Fall Style Diary, comfort was key!  I needed things that were quick and easy, plus I was just kind of lazy.  Many people confuse comfortable clothing with sloppy clothing, and that doesn’t have to be the case.  A dress is heck a lot easier for me to put on than a pair jeans, and I instantly look i put in some effort when i really didn’t!  Along with comfort, this week was about a statement piece, which was my new studded leather jacket.  I love it!  It dresses anything up.  The other key piece are my Jeffery Campbell Brit Wrap Strap Boots.  I’ve been eyeing strap boots for minute, and these did exactly what i wanted; they’re a great pair of moto boots to go with my moto jacket.
My favorites fits this week came in the latter portion of it, which were Thursday, Friday and Continue reading

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: style diary

8 Oct



As I said last week, my Style Diary is back!  The fall season has inspired me to go back to my Style Diary that has been off and on since 2010.  As I’ve always said, i don’t consider myself a fashionista, or even a style guru, I’m not even a shopaholic; I just enjoy the process of making outfits and how a clothing and fit can affect your mood and shape.

For those who are new, I really don’t have a particular style, I dress by mood, and I like what I like.  I guess an ongoing theme within my closet is vintage inspired, rock star feel, and classic silhouettes…you can tell me if you agree.



Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday were my favorite outfits of the week. Accessories are always a staple for me, but the key piece this week was my new Continue reading

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN: street style

3 Oct



Hey Guys!


Its been a minute, and I promise to do better! 🙂

Fall is my favorite season to dress, so I decided to keep a Style Diary again, starting October 1st.  Right after I decided to do this, Essence Magazine’s, Essence.com, posted a Street Style piece that I was featured in….making me feel like starting up Style Diary was a good idea. 

Street Style is a 3-part online series featuring Fashion Blogger Gabi Fresh ambushing fashionable folks right before New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

I can’t embed the video, so check it out below (just click).


Look out for my Fall Style Diary coming soon!

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN?: J.Cole on Fallon

2 Feb



Did you guys get a chance to check J.Cole on the Jimmy Fallon Show on January 31st?  If you missed it, you can check out the Grammy Nominee above, and if you look quickly, you’ll see the homie, DJ Dummy along with The Roots. 

I have to admit, I’ve seen Can’t Get Enough performed enough times at this point, so I mostly transfixed on clothing….Ummm yea, can we talk about Cole’s leather and denim jacket?? I need something like that in my life ASAP, i’d rock the hell out of it!

I’m not completely sold, but maybe this Rag & Bones jacket may work:
