When I first saw the Air Jordan Season of Her collection I was instantly taken aback. The dreamy colorways. The lush texture. The fact that it is an exclusively women’s release. Just in time for Women’s History Month, I got my hands on a pair of these sneakers that aren’t just shoes but also a sign of changing times.
Hey guys! It’s been about five months since I went back into freelance work and my learning curve has been extensive. If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know I used to work as a freelance stylist for about two years so this isn’t my first rodeo but returning back to this unpredictable type of work as a blogger/model/etc has brought with it a new slew of lessons and I wanted to take some time to share them as I settle more into this position. Keep reading for my #girlboss takeaways.
My love for streetwear is no secret. I love athletic textiles, bright colors, and an oversized fit. When I discovered emerging Los Angeles-based designer Daniel Patrick, I knew I wanted to get my hands on some pieces. Worn by celebrities like J. Cole, Big Sean, and Teyana Taylor, Patrick is becoming a streetwear fave for young, urban Hollywood and beyond.

Summer in Toronto has been a little anti-climactic. An extended spring seems to have never quite given way to summer, even long after the summer solstice has passed. Things haven’t felt as bustling as they have in the past. And me? I’ve been locked away in my own world crafting something special.
There are many reasons bloggers decide to start chronically their lives in the digital sphere. While I’ve stopped and started multiples times, I’ve been running this particular blog for over a year and a half. I look up to the OGs of the blogosphere like Feral Creature who has been blogging for 10 years now. She recently published a post about being at a crossroads in her journey and it made me stop and think about my own path.
The last time I explored Asian fashion was maybe about 10 years ago. My love for anime and J-pop poured over into a fascination with fashion hubs like the Harajuku district in Tokyo. These days it’s places like Seoul, South Korea that have caught my attention for their youthful, modern styles.
An eternity ago, when I was in high school, I was a punk. More like a punk/goth/anime kid. And one of the staples of my wardrobe were band tees. A friend gave me a The Starting Line tee, I picked up a My Chemical Romance tee from Hot Topic, and a few of my comrades wore this popular tee to showcase their love for The Used. The guy I crushed on had long hair down his back and one of the four shirts he wore was a Led Zeppelin tee.
Somewhere along the line I retired my music merch but more and more in the past few years I’m starting to see it make a comeback in fashion and I’m more than happy to take part.
