I recently decided that I want to change my hair. This is what my hair looks like right now. I had a keratin treatment provided by the fine folks at Kerapure. They sent me a treatment and I had my new stylist Jael apply it. My hair has been a total dream ever since. It’s soft, manageable and has an amazing sheen to it. Everyone loves it. I totally recommend this over a relaxer. I also had Jael cut my hair as well. I love it. There’s another change in the works but I’m keeping that under wraps for now.
I love this skirt so much. I want to wear it with everything. I’ve had it paired in my head with every top that has come into sight since I got it. It pretty much goes with anything.
Sorry these pictures are kind of grainy but this was a quick and dirty shoot in my kitchen after a disappointing night out. What a waste of an outfit I absolutely adored. I serious had a bad lunch/dinner think cold mediocre food, followed by an event that wasn’t up to expectations. My friend and I tried to save the day by hitting up Chili’s for their 2 for 1 drinks and the bar was packed and there was a wait to be seated. After that we just called it a night.
I’m finally getting around to posting the editorial I did for Your Beauty Industry magazine back in April and the magazine came out in August. I love styling for magazines but I hate the wait for images.
I pulled clothing from KrelWear, Filthy Magic, Ema Savahl and my own closet of course. Jewelry was all provided by Charles Albert who I’ve worked with several times. Their pieces always put the perfect finishing touches on an outfit. McKenna wanted the Ema Savahl dress she wore in the 2nd row of images (middle shot), I think she almost had her mom convinced to purchase it for her for prom.
I took some behind the scenes photos in the early stages of the shoot before I started running around like a mad woman. I wish I’d gotten shots of all of the outfits. I just have skeleton photos for reference and those aren’t any fun.
I loved working with photographer Elise Donoghue, makeup artist Debra Macki, and hair stylist Johnny Diol. We had a lot of fun shooting. The other shoot I did for YBI isn’t out yet so I’m still looking forward to seeing how those images turned out.
Brink magazine Beauty Editor Michelle Cameau & Me
Been wanting to post these pictures for a bit now, but they were for a magazine so I had to wait for the magazine to come out. I hate the waiting game since I’m so impatient. My makeup looks so lovely, thanks so much Michelle. You may kind of remember this look from the headshot photos I posted a few weeks ago. I self took those photos though, these are professional.Taken by Garett Frandsen who I wish lived here instead of Orlando/being a wandering photographer. I kinda loved him, and would love to work with him behind the camera instead of in front of it.
I’ve been published in Brink magazine before but as a stylist. So it was my work but never me. I wanna send this to my grandma in Trinidad because I know she’ll be super proud of me. We shot the feature in my condo here in South Florida. Peep my piggy banks behind me from Target. I really love my home, so it’s kinda cool to see it in print. I should of cleaned up the area a bit though, I didn’t know we’d shoot there. Oh and if you’re wondering why I’m barefoot, it’s because I have white carpet and observe the no shoes in my house rule. Like I will kill you.
A shot of me in my office, definitely the messiest room in the house…because I’m messy and this is my space. Oops. Behind me you can see a bit of a clothing rack that houses clothing & samples for www.filthymagic.com as well as items I need/would like to shoot on my blog. If I keep them in my closet, I’ll definitely forget. RIP to that Jewel Mint blue & white seed bracelet. This was the first piece of Jewel Mint I had a problem with. Incredibly disappointed since it was the first time I wore it and then it broke that night.

What do you think of my outtakes? Do you think they picked the best shot to use for the magazine? That’s the only reason I posted so many of the photos.
Some new jewelry arrivals over at Filthy Magic that I’m really feeling. So expect to see me in this stuff soon. I have a vintage necklace like the clock locket, Matt’s mom picked up for me. I’m going to cop this new one in silver. It’s a little different from my vintage piece but still VERY similar (wearing mine here and here).
Clothing wise my most favorite new arrival has to be this gorgeous Knit Beach Cape. I’ve also got love for a few skirts and dresses as well. Back to work bringing you guys new goodies, but do let me know which is your favorite piece?

If you don’t already have this skirt, I have to wonder why the hell not? Available here! DimePiece S/S10 is sensational. I love the whole theme and idea behind it all. Definitely look for more DimePiece appearing on Filthy Magic in the future. Definitely my favorite “urban” brand
It’s a common known fact that sex sells, but at what cost? DimePiece’s S/S 2010 collection, Too Much Too Young, ventures into the sensationalized, fast-paced and drug-ridden culture that society stresses to our youth. At some point we stopped expecting young people to be productive, intelligent members of society and began to think of them as gullible, indulgent consumers. We explore the view of today’s youth by venturing into stimulants, self-worth and politics with trippy imagery and an audacious approach. We’re taught to know “facts” but critical analysis is lost to effort to simply look like you understand. With this in mind, we tell the story of a girl who sits on the Capital’s lawn with beer cans and our symbol of ‘freedom’ as her cushion. Throughout her journey she finds herself falling through space and time, attempting to hold on to her breath…the only thing that she finds real and constant. She awakens in a disillusioned state, engulfed in a modernized jungle of drugs and sex. How much do we actually know about ourselves, and our place in America? In this story, details in the images are blurred to symbolize the lies and inaccuracies we’re told and what we’ve failed to question.
What is too much? What is too fast?
