Chanel Tank Top?

UrbanJungleFashion

Yesterday I told you guys about the 40% sale at Milk + Honey located in Dallas (btw the sale is on until tomorrow 07/28/2013) and the top is what I picked up.  I have to admit that LOVE this tank.  It’s criss-crossed in the back (not shown in pictures)  and feels so good on the skin!  The best part?!…  100% Made in America.  The only downside is that I still shelled out $25 for a top that was on sale (yes I’m super cheap), but I have to admit that I am happy with my purchase.

I actually rocked this outfit last night at the Dress Dallas 2013.  This event is headed up by my friend and American Idol contestant, Vincent Powell.  I couldn’t stay for the entire event but I wanted to get some shots in for my blog and be able to practice taking runway pictures.  I will post the pictures and more info about the Dress Dallas tomorrow.

Cool Necklace!

Tribal wooden bead necklace

I found this really unique wooden bead necklace bib at Strut during thier 40% sale during Fourth of July weekend (from $21 to $13).  While the rest of my outfit wasn’t anything to write home about I really wanted to show off this piece.

Yes, I actually have a number of outfits to showcase but I have been having OS issues with my comp and the BCOD (blue screen of death) is becoming more and more common these days.  I have to back errrrrrrything up on an external drive in the event my laptop decides he wants to chunk the deuces on me.  It’s crazy because I have had this laptop for six years and everyone freaks out when I tell them I have had a laptop last that long.

I take great care of my electronics.

Plus it’s a Dell.  I find all their products dependable.

Here’s a sneak peak about tomorrows post… bee excitedddddddd!!!

Fourth of July Here I Come!

DSC_0441_edited-1

Here is a recent shoot I completed about two weeks ago with the lovely Tayana. I really loved working with her. There is nothing better to a photographer than a model that can take direction. This was my first attempt at bikini/lingerie photography and I plan to continue to learn and grow. I just wanted to show you guys what I have been up to for my personal business.

Today Jax and I I will be heading down south to Austin for Fourth of July weekend. I plan to chill with family and friends. Kissing my nephew, bar hopping, and light debauchery are all in my near future. I will also be chilling with the Spill.com group for Spill Dot Con. I have already met Korey and Leon (Martin) who are super cool… but I can’t wait to meet Tony (Co-Host) and Chris (Cyrus). I hope I don’t geek out over them and I’m able find some words to say.

Also, while I’m in town I will be hosting a number of photo shoots. If you live in the Austin area and have been considering getting some professional pictures (rather for yourself, couples, or small family) send me a message at UrbanJungleFashion@gmail.com. Also check out my current special on Living Social!

Have a great holiday!

American, Express

American Apparel Bodysuit Express Skinny Jeans (1 of 4)

While running around yesterday I decided that putting on an easy outfit would do some justice so I opted to wear my American Apparel bodysuit (again) that I picked up this week and my Express jeans that I also picked up during their semiannual sale. I paired it off with my Nikes that I picked up from Ross some time back. I haven’t worn the necklace pictured in three years so I thought this would be a good debut. It’s such a strong piece for such a simple outfit.

Style Mint Tank Top and Express Pants (1 of 6)

I work hard for the money.  Yeah!  I really kept my word and posted some OOTD this week.  I know I missed yesterday, but that was for good reason.  One was because I had worn the outfit before and it was featured on the blog and second because I wanted to highlight my feature on Living Social.  So if you’re in the Dallas area and are looking for a great photographer please check out my Living Social deal.  I will link the ad at the end of the post.

I know I make it known how much I LOVE Express bottoms.  In fact three out of the four days this week I have worn something from Express.  I know I didn’t showcase yesterdays outfit, but it was all Express, top and bottom.  Today the pants are Express.  I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the Express editor pants.  They are so comfy and are traditionally stylish.  I think I have had these pants for five years.  The entire time of me owning them I have only dry cleaned them.

The top I picked up from StyleMint within the last five or six months.  I featured it on the blog months ago when I tried to do a French inspired look.  I actually did a three shirt for $30 from StyleMint.  The catch was the shirts they would send you would be a mystery.  The other two shirts were so FUGLY.  *ugh* I just gave them away to my local charity organization.  They were of great quality but ugly design and color.  What I do like about StyleMint is the fact they are made in the USA.  I can get behind that.

Working It!

White Pencil Black Roses Express White American Apparel Body Suit (4 of 4)

I figured since I have a more normal job I can dress normal. By normal I mean not in a blue button up shirt, jeans, and steel toed boots. Now I can dress girly. I now work back in the IT sector. As you can imagine there are about 30 men to every woman in the area that I work in. At first I didn’t want to dress up “Korin style” because I didn’t want attention on me. However, I feel like my work and creativity are lacking and that’s because I’m not being true to who I am. I’m not dressing up because I don’t want attention on me. First, I’m only ONE of two black women there. Second, I’m one of youngest people there. Third, I’m taller than most of the men. However, I can’t change who I am as a person because it does affect me in all aspects of my life. Really its affected my work too. So I have decided that I will dress like the person I am.

I have to say that I LOVE American Apparel. I actually bought the bodysuit yesterday because I needed something to wear the skirt. Since I bought the skirt without trying it on I didn’t know how it was going to fit against my body. So I didn’t have to worry about skin showing I opted to get buy a bodysuit. American Apparel is the only place I know that sells them so I made a trip to Mockingbird Station and picked it up.

I must say that I LOVE that American Apparel is made and sold in the USA. I purchased and black and white bodysuit for $28 each. Yes, that is kind of expensive but the bodysuits are of great quality and I will pay extra to know that my clothes were not made in China.

I’m really TRYING to buy more American made clothing.

I Love Orion Pax

Transformers Business Casual (2 of 5)

Better known to most of you as Optimus Prime.  I found this shirt at Target years ago and always thought it would be cool to pair such a youthful shirt with a a business outfit and rock it to work… so that’s what I did.

First, I want to apologize for not showcasing any pictures of the outfit in the front with the blazer.  I was looking all kinds of crazy in the face and couldn’t post the photos.

I think I’m going to do more of this serious looks with a youthful twist.  That and I just have a lot of t-shirt with 80’s and 90’s cartoons… Smurfs, Spiderman, Rainbow Brite… yes, I just love T shirts!  My brother was supposed to cop me a yellow power rangers shirt!  I have not idea what happened to that!  I seriously need to locate a Ren and Stimpy shirt.

Corina from Shoedazzle

Since I have a bit of discretionary income I thought  I should reward myself.  So I spurged and buy some new shoes… and by spurged I mean I spent $13.02 for these new kicks.

Yes, I’m a super shopper!

So I’m going to take a page out of Lisa’s book and doing a shoe reveal. I LOVE when Lisa does shoe reveals on her blog, but her shoes typically cost about a billion times more than mine would.

Okay… here we go!

I love the color of Shoedazzle boxes!

DSC_0738

Yes!  I have super big feet.  Which is good cuz NO ONE can borrow shoes from me!

DSC_0739

I love how Shoedazzle glams their products up with these dust bags.  I have countless amounts of them and have never used them.  DSC_0740

There she is!  Corina!  This is a heeless wedge shoe.  I wasn’t going to rock this trend, but when I I found I could cop them for $13.02 (including shipping) then I was all aboard the heeless wedge express!  CHOO!  CHOO!DSC_0742

There they go!DSC_0744 DSC_0748 DSC_0750 DSC_0752 DSC_0753

 

They are actually VERY easy to walk in.  I wanted to rock them last night at a pub crawl, but it has been raining like cats and dogs in Dallas recently and I resisted the urge to do so… because I didn’t want to fall on my face and look like an ass.  However, I will probably be rocking them around July 04th weekend.  I will be heading home to Austin for an extended stay and will have plenty of time to showcase the hell outta them.

I hope you guys liked this reveal! If so I will try and do more when/if I buy anymore shoes. My shoe closet is at full capacity right now.

What do you guys think about the heelless wedge trend?

Happy Sunday Funday!

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!!!!!

DSC_0022_edited-1

Do people in the North, East, or West part of the United States celebrate Cinco de Mayo? From my understanding Cinco de Mayo is just a Texas thing. Then again Texans will use ANY and EVERY excuse to celebrate a holiday. If you think St. Patrick’s Day is bad… naw kid… you need to come to Texas for Cinco de Mayo.

What does Cindo de Mayo represent? If you say Tequila and Coronas then you would be incorrect my dear friend. Cinco de Mayo, without using Wiki as a reference, indicates that Mexico lost the battle at the Alamo, but represents their commitment to winning the war. The Mexican won their independence from France in the war of San Jacinto (09/16). This mean they won their freedom from France.

The ironic thing is, even though most state employees get San Jacinto Day off most people celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

LOL

Wow.

Because I live downtown and this area mainly consisted of people in their 20’s and 30’s with no kids and love to drink all I hear from my balcony  is Lowrider from the Cheech and Chong movie, Born in East LA.

I was at an Irish Pub (LOLOLOL I know… please no need to comment on that) getting my Cinco de Mayo on. The John Steward’s the Daily Show was filming, but I left. I had two 32 oz mason jars of a tequila sunset. I haven’t had a sunset since college. I’m didn’t get drunk… but I sure felt good.

Well, I was alone on Cinco de Mayo because most of my friends celebrated the day before. However, it wasn’t so bad. I got to sketch my next photography project which I hope to execute in either June or July.

So I shot these photos on my balcony. Both Jax and I have super nosey personas and we couldn’t help but to watch all our neighbors at the pool getting their gringo on for Cinco de Mayo.

Parka or Booty Shorts?

I’m not sure about the rest of the country, but the weather in Dallas has been more up an down than Oprah Winfrey’s diet. It’s high then low then high then low. Geez. It’s like Mother Nature forgot to take her medication… then again, I did warn you guys that’s what Texas was like.

Welcome to Texas y’all!

Nonetheless, since the weather can’t stay stable neither can my love for color versus neutral.

Since this photo is from Tumblr God only knows where it originated from. All I know is that I love the fun youthful color here. I love how she pairs the sheer black top with the colorful print mini skirt. I LOVE the second girl’s hair, and the color combination of her mini skirt and body suit
