please check it out and support an indie director, roy clovis; he is not only talented and passionate about his craft, he is also a wonderful and sweet person.

Something is always going on in Dumbo. Yesterday it was a L’Oreal commercial, tonight it’s a movie. And u can’t forget all the countless weddings & photo shoots that happen on a daily basis. Aahhh, I love my new neighborhood. :)

unzipped, 1995

i rented this movie about a month ago via netflix (and just realized someone uploaded the whole movie on youtube, as usual) and have been watching it a couple nights a week before i go to bed.

so inspiring on so many levels. first, i love isaac mizrahi. 1-cuz he is funny 2-he loves color. 3-he’s a native new yorker (holla!) 4-his hair! second, it just shows you a glimpse into his life as a designer; from getting bad reviews, to seeing what inspires him; from working with legends (earth kitt r.i.p!), to traveling to paris. i watch it and would love for my life to be that way. can’t wait for the day when i have my team + we are showing at new york fashion week with the hottest models. and working with hot celebs and legends in the game. and traveling the world. *sigh*

going to watch it now.

my afro-hipster look

had a wonderful weekend.

friday- went to see some friends perform in l.e.s. then afterwards had to run to the boondocks in williamsburg to see my huuuzband q-tip dj @ brooklyn bowl. the crowd was…interesting. but my baby did his thang. i just luv him so.

saturday- met with a client, ran to the fabric store to pick up some necessities, and sleep the rest of the day.

today- woke up @ 6:45am to catch up on some work then off to the private screening of this movie i helped wardrobe this past summer called “the cycle.” (the film came out so dope! congrats to roy clovis, the director. so proud of him!) then got a bite to eat with some of the crew from the film; it was good catching up with good people.

after this long weekend, i feel fulfilled. i think the nice weather played a part in it. i just feel like i am getting back to the old tennille, the one who would go out + socialize and enjoy people + life. recently i have been so couped up at home just working. but i am looking forward to the nice weather so i can go out + enjoy the city like i used to.

and speaking of nice weather, i am soooo looking forward to wearing little skirts + heels. and color. lots of it too! i was just looking at the above pic thinking, damn, why do i have on so much black! i mean black has always been in my wardrobe but i think i overdid it this past summer when i bought 6 pairs of black american apparel leggings (wholesale-cuz i ain’t crazy!). i need to purge my closet of all this black! and of other stuff too. i actually made a mental list of the items that must go asap. more on that later.

spring cleaning here i come!

knows that i live under a rock. i am late on everything that is “hot.” lol

so i FINALLY rented the sex + the city movie. i did plan on seeing it in the theaters but of course, i missed it. and i kinda didn’t want to watch it yesterday, i don’t know why. but i am soooo glad i did. it was actually very good! not that i thought it was going to be horrible, but u know when people hype things up + when u see it, u r like wtf? but this was actually a great movie. of course the fashion was dope. but i also liked most of the storyline too.

i think i am going to watch it again this weekend. it was just inspiring to me on so many levels. it was mos def something i needed to see now. and it has got me stepping up my game plan even harder.

will be watching this tonite!

(thank u netflix.)

my assistant said it was inspiring so i am crossing my fingers.

12:25pm - wake up

12:40pm - eutopia calls me to tell me she was in my neighborhood. thank god i was in the shower when she called.

1:10pm - me + eutopia r out on my stoop talking. she gives me good news + tells me she is only gonna go by her on-air name, eutopia. (she is a radio personality here in nyc.)

2pm - we go to urban outfitters + trader joe’s

3:15pm - she drops me off @ my house. i contemplate if i should go to a free screening of FAME with her + her friend + cuzo…

eutopia invited me to see FAME. it was a free screening so i said hey, why not?!

we sat in the 3rd row, which is not how anyone should watch a movie.

as for FAME, it was very mediocre. i didn’t hate it, but it was not inspiring either. but i must say i have a new crush…collins pennie. yummy!!!!

how i was greeted

no not gamer, FAME!!!
