Believe the HYPE

This week, I was invited by Starsky of Major Hype to be part of
the photo shoot for our event, SPAZ!!!
{which is scheduled to take place this Saturday! :) }
All of the artists that will be performing at SPAZ! were in their Major Hype wear,
ready to strike their best poses before the camera.
When I came on the scene, I must admit that I was VERY nervous to model.
Yet after about 5 or 6 flashes of the camera, I began to think that I could get used to this lol
Posing was a bit awkward, since I had to constantly reinvent myself frame after frame.
But other than that, the photo shoot went amazingly well, and I had soooo much fun!

You mad cause Im STYLIN on ya

Soooo in my downtime at Chic Little Devil,
I've taken it upon myself to style a few looks here && there.
When a client has to have one of the fab fits on the showroom's various mannequins,
I decide to revamp the dressform with something too chic to look at once. lol
I even got the opportunity to spread my stylin' wings when pulling looks for a photoshoot!
{Which I unfortunately failed to snap some pics of :/ }
Anywho, here's a handful of looks I've styled thus far in my interning experience at CLD.
Enjoy! ;)

{THIS JUST IN!!!} && I just received an offer from a new friend to be a wardrobe stylist at an upcoming shoot next weekend!!!
I'm on a roll! :)


While in L.A. over the weekend with Kev's family, he spotted a great photo-op,
so I had to take advantage. lol

Last week {after much convincing}, Kevin took me bowling!
I haven't been since my middle school days, && have never been too thrilled about wearing those rugged && stinky bowling shoes or getting my fingers stuck in that boulder of a bowling ball. lol
Buuuut in the end, I guess that's what makes it fun.

We played 3 games, Sexy Chocolate vs. George. lol
The first 2 without bumpers, && the last with the bumpers in full effect.

Game 1......Kevin won...

Game 2......Kevin won AGAIN!..lol

But as for Game 3?!
I {finally} claimed victory!
&& No, not because the bumpers were up. lol
For some unexplainable and odd reason,
the bowling ball was willing to cooperate with me
and would head down the center of the lane!
So really, the bumpers were there to help Kev out. hahah

All in all, we had a lot of fun, && as weird as it sounds,
I'm looking forward to going bowlin' again :)

It's her time to shine!
Singer, songwriter, && now fashion maven, Solange is making a name for herself
now more than ever.
I'm sure that she'll inevitably be referred to as "Beyonce's little sis," yet she's definitely breaking out of B's shadow with both her music && her sense of style.
I don't necessarily think Solange is trying to "keep up with the Jones',"
she's just aware of the fact that fashion is where it's at! lol
The hot mama has been creating a new vibe on the fashion scene,
taking some of the biggest fashion risks EVER....&& I can do nothing but applaude her!
I love it!!!
Fashion is all about turning heads && stepping on the toes of comfort and conformity,
Solange being an apparent believer in that philosophy.
So I had to take this opportunity to give sum kudos to the Sol-Angel. :)

Solange at this year's Essence Music Festival,
looking very chic in a pair of black & white art deco leggings and hot pink pumps,
topped with a classic blazer & white tee.

...here's a few more random yet fashion forward candids of Solange...

Talking Business

The scorching heat sutured with the fact that I'm {still} jobless
equals a summer of boredom.
In all actuality, I guess I can't complain too much because I did take advantage of the fantastic opportunity to go to New York with my best friend at the beginning of the summer.....&& I am a fashion intern at a phenomenal style house.
But there's still something that has yet to fill that void, the very thing that us kids go crazy about when they're fresh out of school.

Yet after my recent meetings with a new friend, I've realized what I need to devote all of this spare time to, && have been routed back to my passion and doing what I love.

I met Starsky of Major Hype clothing back in early June
at the Save Darfur Fashion Show that was held at my school.
He told me that "my line was dope" lol && that he'd love to talk business in the near future to help me out with getting my designs seen by the right people.
We exchanged information && the next thing ya know, we were meeting up to chitchat about the direction I want my line to go as well as possibly a future collabo.

Kev was thrilled about the whole ordeal when I told him of the big plans we had && was more than ready to hop on board, helping out in any way that he could.
Since he's creative && knows the ins & outs of the whole t-shirt printing biz {since he mastered it in his high school graphics classes},
I knew that this could be a win-win situation for us both.

We met up with Starsky Wednesday evening to further discuss some future events && collab ideas that've been in the works.
{I'll be SURE to keep ya in the loop when the event is almost here!}

After a few hours of productive conversation,
I snapped some picks of Starsky's fly fit, then later on, Kev snapped some of me. lol
