You rarely find me wearing color but you can’t go wrong with black, right? This is a very laid back outfit because sometimes when you’re Netflix-ing and chillin’ you need to get the fuck out for a walk because you’ve been on the couch way too damn long. The good thing about DTLA is that you can take a quick stroll to some local shops and grab a beer. A couple of my favorite spots are Beelman’s and Spring Street Bar. The bad thing is that you don’t want to take a deep breath in some pockets–you Angelinos know what I mean. It’s not the most pleasant of all scents.

This is one of the most comfortable outfits and it’s super cozy. I’m wearing my HLZ BLZ cropped logo sweatshirt and Lifted Anchors double layered shorts. It’s nice to just dress down a little bit and not overthink your outfits. I really do’t have much to say about this look but I hope you keep up with check in weekly for my ramblings.

You know, there are nights where you think that you’re completely clear headed but in reality you’re intoxicated. This was obviously one of them! I had one too many shots and before walking out the door I had a great idea to take photos with my stuffed unicorn, Jelly Bean Unicorn Farts (thank you Stace and Abz!). He takes up about half of my apartment because he’s so big but it’s totally fine with me because he cooooo. There isn’t much to explain besides these photos where I’m lookin’ real serious in them because I was all about it. It’s just funny to me and I thought that I would share it with the world.

Downtown LA has its special gems and one of my favorites is the OAK store on Broadway and 9th. I’ve always been a fan of the brand because who doesn’t like anything that’s black and drapey? The cuts of their garments are so progressive and their aesthetic is something that I could relate to. The store is extremely clean and minimal- I’m planning to decorate my apartment in the same manner but, it’s going to take me a little bit of time. You know how that shit go…or at least I think you do.

If there’s one thing that I wear too often it would be this long tee from the Alexander Wang X H&M collection. Yes, I know I’m hella late on this but I was on a hiatus! I straight waited in line all night and slept on the motha f*ckin’ streets of LA for this. It was definitely an experience and if you ask me if I would do it again I’ll say, “Nahhh.” Anyways, I wear it as a dress because I’m a little Filipino person. It’s a dope piece to have because it has a big “WANG” on the front of your chest with a mesh inset and silver reflective fabric under.  You won’t attract attention at all! (wink-wink). To complete this sporty look I threw on my neon yellow Nike roshes to stay more incognito.

It’s hot as balls in LA! I couldn’t even stand on the court for more than 15 minutes without thinking that I was going to pass out from heat exhaustion. I told Diane (of Suspend Mag) that I had to stop the shoot because I needed water and AC. I guess you could say that it’s a bit diva-ish but, I couldn’t help it. What an interesting place to take photos, right? For those of you who are getting to know me, I used to play tennis and started training at the age of 4. It was intense but who knows, maybe I’ll start playing again. Let’s just say that I have a love/ hate relationship with the game.

This has to be the quickest photoshoot that I’ve ever done but, it’s totally one of my favorites. The HLZBLZ team was nice enough to lace me up with some goodies over the weekend because we’re doing something special with Suspend Mag. I’m wearing a tank with their logo and I love the fact that they did something different and put mesh insets on the sides. My bottoms are from Top Shop and they’re vegan leather dolphin shorts. Paired together it’s a total sporty look which is dope and I’ll let you guess which Spice Girl I’m trying to channel. My sunglasses are from Nasty Gal and my shoes are obviously creepers. I swung a vintage denim Levi’s jacket on- don’t as me why, I just did!

I’m already back from Trinidad and Tobago but it’s taken me some time to adjust to being back home. I’ve always been a city girl and have visited several metropolitan cities but this trip definitely opened my eyes to a different sort of life– island life. People don’t have a hundred ideas going through their minds, they just live in the moment and are happy. With all the craziness that was happening at the time it was the most perfect time to take a break and relax. In this set of photos I’m wearing a more relaxed all white outfit. The sun was beaming and even though most of my closet is all black I had to scavenge to find something to deflect the rays. I’m wearing BDG white shorts from Urban Outfitters along with a distressed t-shirt paired with my Spitfite sunglasses.

A few of the locals took us on a private boat ride and this was by far the most amazing beach that we visited in Tobago. There were barely any people there we had a whole section to ourselves. The water was so clear and you could walk into the middle of the ocean and it was literally at your waist. I felt like I was in a dream. I can’t even describe how beautiful the scenery was. All I could do at the moment was “take a mental picture”, as my friend Lee would say. We were taking hella mental pictures, lol!

In these series of shots I’m wearing my Indah blue fringe bikini top which looked amazing as the sun was setting. This is very unique top and I’m obsessed with it because I don’t think there’s anything like it. I die for anything with fringe! I paired it with my Minimale Animale shameless brief. It had black hardware and could match any kind of bikini top.

It’s blazing hot out here and it’s ridiculously humid. You’ll be able to tell in the frizziness of my hair because that shit cray (in some of the photos). I’ve been having an amazing time so far and we’ve been hanging with locals who have been taking us to places that we would have never found ourselves. Before our excursion today I threw on a pair of vintage stone washed shorts that I found at a thrift store, my Urban Outfitters sandals and my top is actually a bikini top that I got from Nasty Gal. Hope you guys are having a great day so far, it’s time for me to go!

This morning I woke up to the sounds of birds chirping and goats baaing. It was fucking amazing! Although, when I walked into my bathroom there was a bat and I was freaking the fuck out and I damn near had a heart attack. Yup, I’m definitely not in the city anymore and I need to prepare myself for quite the journey- which entails a lot of bugs. I don’t know if I’m ready for this.

Trinidad and Tobago is a twin island off of the north edge of South America. We’re currently in Tobago and staying in Castara where the beach is literally walking distance from our Airbnb. The weather is perfect and there’s a little humidity but it’s bearable. Today’s look consists of very minimal clothing because, duh! We’re at the beach. I’m wearing my Minimale Animale mesh firebird cover up along with my Nasty Gal Hologram swimsuit. I love the fabric of because it’s super unique and I haven’t really seen any swimsuits in this color or print. On my feet are my Jeffrey Campbell slippers with really cool circular hardware and on my face are some clear cat eye sunglasses. More outfits to come! Stay tuned!

Happy Saturday! I took some quick snaps right before I had to run errands because tomorrow morning I’ll be headed out of the country for a much needed vacation. This isn’t the most practical outfit for Target but whatever, I’ll try not to fall and eat shit (May the Shoe Gods protect me). Here’s a tip- when shopping in LA you kind of have to fix yourself up because you never know who you’re going to run into. C’mon, you don’t want to be looking all sort of haggard that’s just rude. Be kind and fix your face or wear sunglasses. I busted out my light wash flared jeans that I haven’t worn in forever. The 70’s vibe has been a popular trend so why not go with the flow? I paired it with a cute ribbed crop top because it’s blazing hot outside and my Quay round sunnies that go perfect with this look.

DSC_9204…an amazing friend, Arnelle  Lozada. We met during a music video that we shot for Warm Brew’s A1 Day 1 featuring Racella (a soulful vocalist and extremely talented writer). We bonded over drinks and then, BOOM! Instantly became friends and formed a girl group, just kidding. I can’t sing to save my life. These days you come across so many talented creatives with super busy schedules. Arnelle does everything imaginable- her blog thisbeautifulife.com, the #EXPERIENCECPERIMENT, Youtube videos, photography, consulting, etc. Time is precious and I’m fortunate that she’s willing to help mentor me. So, thank you! I truly appreciate it and looking forward to all the cool shit that we have planned. Happy early birthday!
