“Tomboy Chic” is a term I live by at times in regards to my wardrobe. Growing up with three older brothers, I would always find myself secretly borrowing their threads, and/or adopting the boyish aesthetic to fit my own taste. Hence I own a plethora of oxford and rugby shirts, and more sneakers than I can count.
On a breezy spring day, my good friend Cee decided to shoot me in my “tomboy chic” in one of my favorite Brooklyn neighborhoods, Fort Green. The shoot was to be focused on the detail of the product; buttons on the shirt, soles of the kicks, etc, but that went awry, and I ended up with a super cool shoot in the end. Here is Do It Like A Dude.
If you have been following my social media updates, you would have noticed that I’ve updated my imagery across the board. I am in a re-branding stage for my site, and in doing so, it was necessary to a full-on photoshoot. From a reader’s perspective, I know you don’t see me much, which can be a bit confusing given the name of the site, so here I am, showing you a little bit more of me and my personal style.
I did this shoot earlier in the month with my good friends Ernest Estimé (photographer) and Jessica Crocetto(hair & make-up artist) in a little neighborhood in Brooklyn next to DUMBO called Vinegar Hill. I’m taking a more editorial approach with these shoots, making it a step above a normal outfit post. Be on the lookout for more site updates and content. Here is Turn On The Brights.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the B3 Blogger Workshop presented by Single Edition Media. It was basically a day of blogger school, led by discussions by various experts in media training, e-book publishing, event planning, PR and more. I was happy to see the majority of my new friends of the Blogger Collective there, and connect with them all for the first time in real life!
After the workshop, I accompanied new friends Naina and Luis to Bryant Park to snap some style photos. We decided on the New York Public Library steps. Take a look!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers, mothers-to-be, and mother figures out there! Your love and understanding keeps us going. To celebrate my mother on this day, I took her to the Mother’s Day Brunch & Tour at the Brooklyn Museum. Along with my father, she has taught me the importance of culture and art appreciation, so I felt it was a great event for us to enjoy together. Brunch began promptly at 11 AM in the Rubin Pavilion and offered made-to-order omelets, fruits, pastries, salad, coffee, and mimosas. A great way to start the day I must say! We gathered in the Rubin Lobby for our tours at 12:30 PM. I chose Extraordinary Women: Celebrating Mothers and Motherhood in Art through the Ages. We visited works in the European, Egyptian, and American galleries which depicted mothers in different settings, roles, and time periods. Our guide was wonderful, and offered great insight on the pieces and answered all of our questions. I couldn’t imagine spending this Mother’s Day any other way, especially knowing that my mother was very happy, and truly enjoyed herself. Check out some of our photos below.
