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!
from naKIMuli—-the cater dress
my business, of course! i have so many things i am gearing up for the end of this yr + the beginning of next yr. wish i could move fast enough to get them done!
from shanae—-101 dress (coming soon)
at first i was only getting them in the mail. then my friend convinced me to watch the instant movies on my computer. i am hooked! damn u netflix!
any type of tutu/petticoat has got me anticipating an event to rock it to.
my recent babies! got them on right now. lol looking to get more even though i am the worst heel walker (not really but really.)
designed this houndstooth pencil skirt last yr but it started my current obsession for them. will have some variations in the new label.
twisted pencil skirt coming soon
just started on my journey of going to the gym + embarking on a vegan diet. started november 1st + so far i luv it! i never looked forward to cooking until now. in an hr, i will start cooking dinner. yay! wouldn’t offer my food to anyone just yet (even though my girl daizy tried some of it yesterday + is still alive), but give me a couple of months…
took me a while to join twitter. there is nothing spectacular about it but i luv it. guess cuz i follow some cool people who inspire me: rev run, deepak chopra, june ambrose, russell simmons, my girl chanel of junkprints, and my boy taqiy of go tee entertainment .
just a few of the bands i listen to on the reg.
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.
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!!!!
