This baroque inspired military hat designed by Rodrigo Otazu is perfection. I get a lot of my music and style influence from Baroque art and music, which means I seriously do spend a lot of time analyzing a lot of the patterns and sounds during that time. The Baroque era was filled with over the top patterns, colors and gold! These are three things that I live for when it comes to my style. I’m loving the lace on this hat with the gold chain, it gives me the Russian model spy vibe! Also, I think the color is everything! This light pink / orange color makes this military hat a lot more fun. FYI I am 100% open to gifts and donations for my birthday on September 18, please feel free to message me if you plan on mailing me this hat directly, checks are also accepted … I’m just letting you all know in advance just in case you want to start saving up for my gift! Also check out one of my favorite artists Common’s newest track ‘No Sell Out’ produced by No ID … I’m loving the vibe and it goes with the military hat. I’m glad Common is coming out with new music again, he is one of my favorite rappers ( Chi town stand up) Check it out below and get the free download!

I recently did the video look book for Tokyo based brand Deflostar shot by AmberCloudFilms. The video look book features three of Deflostar’s newest bandanas in gray, red and black. The bandanas reminded me of my 90′s throwback days when I would rock a bandana with hoops and super gelled curly hair (baby hairs included). Since I was asked to bring my style to these bandanas, I wanted to add a little bit of elegance with the long black gown and edge it up with a street look and large hoops. We shot the video at the Rivington Hotel and around the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the story behind the shoot is an urban NYC girl with a twist … she’s classy but street. The song featured in the video is by the Black Keys ‘Psychotic Girl ‘ I think it really added to the entire feel of the shoot and the grungy vibe of the L.E.S. Stay tuned for more collaborations with me and Deflostar Japan.

So I recently performed my newest single “Visa” at the Polish Reggae Festival in Williamsburg, Brooklyn! That was my third show, and the first time that I performed ‘Visa’ all by itself … It was a great performance, and I loved the Polish crowd! For this show, I really wanted to add to showcase the personality of the song by adding a animal circus element to my style. I’ve been working with a stylist, Jay ( Yes, it’s just Jay with no last name)… He hooked me up with this amazing cat suit that fit like a glove, which was custom made my Marco Hall, and he also gave me this jewelry! In the track ‘ Visa’ you will hear a roaring lion and a lot of animal sounds that I recorded behind the track… It was really important for me to have these animals represented in the jewelry for the show, especially because I’m a jewelry fanatic! Anyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for anything gold and sparkly! So stylist Jay got these pieces from his personal collection, I took a picture of each piece and posted above. Since the jewelry didn’t come from one store, I did a little research for some similar pieces that fit the theme of the look. A couple of people asked me where I got the jewelry and so I found these three similar items: The Blu Bijoux Jaws of The Jaguar Ring, The Juicy Couture Zebra Bracelet & Chevron Crystal Bangle Set. I will be posting the video from the show as soon as I get it, and in the mean time I will sit and ponder when I will be able to whip out this black catsuit again…
