Last Call for the M2 “Sunset on a Florida Parking Lot” Collection

Hey there! So designing this collection was amazing and I am so proud of myself. As you may know, I designed a small spring/summer collection inspired by my Sunset on a Florida Parking Lot painting. Well, this is the last call before I make it an archived collection. 

In these photos, I am wearing the Sunset on a Florida Parking Lot skirt as well as bandeau top. They are both on sale and the sequin denim are great for the Fall. And, don’t worry about me, they always say “this too shall pass.”

What’s your favorite piece of the collection?

One Dark Night

So not too long ago I went out wearing that Leau black romper and had a great time dancing to salsa. I love the summer because we can all let our hair down and enjoy the night without having to wear a coat. Unfortunately, that night I was attacked by a man in an alleged racially motivated incident. Most of the time, police are there to protect you but they aren’t perfect. Subsequently, I started hearing and seeing all kinds of things. I ended up being forced to a hospital where they did not protect me from COVID-19. So now I am recovering and contemplating the fate of this world. Been listening to Solange Knowles “Weary” song from her A Seat at the Table album.

Can you believe something like this would happen in 2021? Have you ever been mistreated like this? And what do you think of the world and our universe today?

Office Days

Good morning and happy Monday! So I have been quite busy working recently and with the COVID vaccine I feel a little more free in this pandemic. I have been mostly working from home because of COVID but have recently started going into the office a bit more. A great summer work look I put together is this old white Bebe blazer, a silk blouse along with a vintage Alice and Olivia skirt (similar here), Steve Madden purse (similar here) and Steve Madden “Kenley” heels. So have you been going back into an office?

Jungle Fever

So I’ve been listening to Beyoncé’s latest album The Lion King: The Gift and have been loving the African beats. I love the international undertone of the album as the music takes me somewhere outside of the U.S. I was reminded of this photo shoot I did some time ago. I guess you can say I have jungle fever. Anyway, what’s your favorite song on the album and have you seen the movie yet?

Charcoal Flower Sketch on Cardboard

Hey there.

Hope you’re week is off to a good start.

So sometimes you just want to sketch on cardboard. Flowers are so beautiful. I was motivated to sketch some on something that could be easily thrown away. It’s like wearing grungy sneakers with a lace skirt…a lovely contradiction of sorts that actually works.

Anyway, enjoy!

Tanya Taylor Crop Top and Rag & Bone Jeans

So I’ve made a big move. I’m now living in Florida but while still in New York I got together with Mariya for some shots. The weather was warm (hence the Tanya Taylor crop top that I found on sale). It’s hot in Florida so I can wear this outfit almost all year! 

These Rag & Bone Simone Denim Pants have been put to great use ever since I got them. They’re light and cute. I just love a dark wash. I paired them with my vintage blue suede Giuseppe Zanotti pumps (similar Manolo Blahnik BB pumps here) and my vintage Marc Jacobs blue handbag. Check out the rest of the photos below!
