WHAT’S GETS YOU MOVIN’: STYLE DIARY (week 7)

4 Jan

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

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Fall Style Diary (week 6)

26 Nov

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

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Fall Style Diary

24 Oct

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

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!

In 2010 when i did my Style Diary, i couldn’t keep up with the shooting, now I can’t keep up the posting! lol…so it goes.  So yea, I’m playing a little catch up with this  Style Diary of mine. 

Back in the 3rd week of October the weather was probably cooler than it has been in November and it seemed like a had a lot more running around than usual to do.

My favorite outfit of the week is between Tuesday and Friday, but I think Friday wins. Friday is my black H&M dresses paired with my, black vintage sweater, that has become my temporary jean jacket replacement until i buy another jean jacket.  Tuesday almost won because i pulled out my necklace that I bought in South Africa, that I rarely ever wear, but I felt sexier Friday, so leather mini dress wins!

30 Oct



Back in 2010 when this blog was According to Jay, I introduced Style Diary to start the new year, a glimpse, a diary if you will, that looked at what i wore for the week.  It was supposed to be sort of this photo documentary, that i was toying with, but sadly my schedule did not permit me to keep up with it.  To read about the background of my idea, check out Style Diary: Week 1. (or click on the What Gets You Movin, Style Diary, categories tab, to see the whole series)

If you read Style Diary: Week 1, you know I’m no fashonista; I don’t even like to shop.  I just like clothing, and what the ability of dressing does to you mood, mindset, and body.  I think rocking a key piece always makes you looked dressed, whether casually or formally dressed. And there is a science to wearing clothes, to make your body look the way you want it to…proportions are everything! 

Over the 1 1/2 years that I stopped posting to the Style Diary, I’ve had quite a few people ask me about it; I didn’t even realize people were checking it out! So here we are again, nearing 2012, and I’m jumping back into the shoes of Style Diary.

I’m simplifying this time around so that i can fit it into my schedule, so no background scenery changes, but hang out with me as I work it out the kinks.


10.10 – 10.16
What a week to start shooting the Style Diary!  I’ve been in a bit of a sad stupor, overwhelmed with all that I have going on, and sleeping maybe 4 days out the week.  This means outfits that are quick, comfortable and apparently black?  I wasn’t aware until i looked at pics how much black I was wearing, so I’ll have to say Tuesday was my favorite outfit.  I don’t wear prints that often, but I was drawn to this Native American-esque print as soon as I saw it; throw that on with a skinny jean and heel, and my mood goes up 200%!
