Tit for Tat



Hey guys!


I'm on vacay this week! Holla! LOL I'm taking it easy and getting a lot of things done on my "vacay bucket list". One of them was to get a new tattoo! I got my second tattoo done at Kingdom Tattoo in the East Village. Loved the vibe of the place the owners were really cool and they actually helped me select the right meaning for my tattoo and classic rock was also playing. I actually felt more as if I was hanging out with my friend's at a store.  Shout out to my dear friend Aiesha for taking the pictures check out her awesome tumblr page here



My tattoo means "to have faith/believe" in Arabic. A special thanks to the owners of Kingdom who were able to help me get the proper symbol.

Here we go :) It also helped that my friend Essence was cracking me up with her side commentaries lol. 
Viola!
I love the way it sits on my arm :)
I want to get another tattoo or four lol definitely in the fall!

Rag & Bone's first print ad campaign

How cool does Kate Moss look in Rag & Bone's first ad campaign?

The campaign is my favorite so far and will debut in the September issues in the next two weeks. 

So chic, urban, and effortless as Rag & Bone always is.







Rag & Bone is one of my favorite brands, I own their feather legging as seen in a post earlier this year.  As seen here:

 I still wear this legging in the summer :)

Rag & Bone's items are pricey but a great investment. One piece from their collection can change your wardrobe for the season. They are great at making urban designs wearable and timeless.

Pre-Fall 2012 Favs!!

Hey guys

Can't believe it's already mid-July! Summer is going by so fast! I hope everyone is enjoying it! 

Mid-July also means: Pre-Fall is in the stores and websites, and it's looking really good! I also like the fact these pieces makes the transition from summer to fall much easier!

My style is usually a mix of tomboy and feminine one minute I am in a rocker shirt and jeans, the next day I will wear a butterfly dress haha!

Fall 2012 mixes masculine and feminine in a big way!

A few of my favs:

A lot of Fall 2012 trends are pictured: Color-blocking, Peplum Tops, Plaid, Neutral Layering, and subtle princess seams.

Pictured from left to right: 

JIL SANDER Dark Brown Two Tone Wedges


A.L.CNora silk-georgette peplum top

Pamela Love dagger silver necklace

Maison Martin Margiela Slouchy Shoulder Bag
Ash Bowie Suede Wedge Sneakers

What pre-fall items caught your eye?

Snap Shot: Summa Swim!


Last week, I finally had the chance to break out the Mara Hoffman bikini I purchased a few months ago! 

A few snapshots of me before I headed to my sister's house!

No regrets!
Shorts: American Apparel

The suit was so comfortable which is rare for a sexy swimsuit these days! I will definitely be purchasing more of her collection in the future! What a great investment piece!
