Bachelorette Party Dresses

My sorority sister is getting married later this month and this weekend is her Bachelorette Party!  Let me be honest, I haven’t been out in a hot minute.  The invite advised that the attendees of this party must wear black while the bride will be rocking red.  Well, that sucks.  All my party dresses are in a color.  By all my party dresses I mean I only have one that I can fit into right now and it’s a purple bondage dress from Forever 21.

Therefore the only natural thing to do is go internet shopping. 

Who has the best party dresses that don’t look cheap?  Bebe.  Bebe is the first place I internet window shop before I go anywhere else, mainly because they have the cutest party dresses that don’t make you look like you’re walking the streets.

Since I have the requirement of not wearing color I had to find a cute black bondage dress.  I was able to find this one.  It’s the Triangle Double Layer Dress.  I picked this dress because I loved how the geometric shape highlighted all the best parts of the female body.  I am also loving the oversize cut out in the back.  I honestly have no idea what shoes I’m going to wear with this dress how or how I’m even going to rock it.  The weather is supposed to be colder and trust me as I get older I will always pick warmth over cutestness.

I also purchased this super cute aurora bondage dress.  I believe this dress is going to look amazing against my skin color.  I plan to get a lot of mileage out of this bad boy.  I want to take it to San Diego, Japan, and maybe if I go out for St. Patricks Day.  Had there not been a stipulation on the color of the party dress there is probably would I would have warn.

The Fashionista’s of Dallas


Dallas is finally moving in the direction of catwalk meets sidewalk.  Earlier this month I was invited to the first Fashion Friday of 2014 at Fedora’s in Dallas.  The Fashionista’s placed on a good show and I really liked the outfits featured.  Since I came more as a spectator getting the details of the show that people look over… the details of design of not only the model but the voyeurs.  Yes, I am so busy because I have photoshoots every other day now.  Sorry this took so long to make it to the blog!

I plan to check out the Fashionista’s as often as possible if the designs, atmosphere, and people are this great!

Yes, I know before I got busy with photography I was going to a lot of fashion outings in Dallas. I plan to start doing that again soon!


Happy Saturday!

The New Year is Starting Off Right!

Dallas, Hip Hop, Photography, Culture

Well, how has the first week into the New Year been for y’all?  Mine has been good thus far.  I have had a number of great shoots already with some popping up this coming weekend and early next week  so I will stay busy.  However, I wanted to do a quick post of some recent published work.  I REALLY want to be published every month of the rest of the year, but I’m going to settle for at least 6 times this year.

Also, I will post more of my recent work in the coming days!

Have a Great Weekend!

A Fashionable Sunday


Sunday was such a beautiful day. My friend and favorite MUA in Dallas Jazzy and I decided to go to hit up Buzzbrew’s brunch together. I LOVE just sitting around with friends and catching up on their lives. I love hearing about relationships and their work and/or business ventures over a great meal.

Best Dallas MUA, Dallas Male Urban Fashion

Had I been thinking beforehand I would have gotten a list of what Jazzy was wearing that day. Don’t you just LOVE his fashion sense? Jazzy is like a walking, living, breathing, fashion editorial. I LOVE his sense of style. I mean the kid is FRESH. TO. DEATH. For now on I will make sure I get a photo of what Jazzy is wearing every time we see each other. My favorite part of Jazzy’s outfit is the knock off Birkin.

Ralph Lauren Windowpane Top, Aldo Bag, Enzo Shoes, Guess

For me: I know the Windowpane look is in for the season… and even though I am not a trendy person I have to say that I LOVE it. My mom actually thrifted this shirt about 4 years ago, and it’s my most favorite clothing item she has ever given to me. Mainly I discourage my mom from buying any fashion items for me, ESPECIALLY SHOES, but she hit the nail right on the head with this Ralph Lauren button up. I LOVE IT. I would rock it every day if it were socially accepatableacceptable. Of course I am wearing my favorite purchase of 2013, my gray H&M skinny jeans! I swear the best $20 I have spent all year. The bag was a Black Friday score from Aldo ($20 baby!) and the shoes are Enzo Angiolini by way for Ross!

The last Dallas Flea market of the year!  I am so excited as I’m probably going to pick up a lot of cool items and perhaps some art this time around.  Based on the flier it seems as though the Dallas Flea will be moving locations next year.  I’m super excited to see where the new location will be held!


See You There!

On Thursday October 03, 2013 my soror and I went to see DJ Lo Down Lorretta Brown (aka Erykah Badu) spin at the new Monroe Lounge in Dallas.

Now if you haven’t been to the Monroe Lounge yet just know this is where the old Wish Ultra Lounge spot used to be. Apparently Wish closed down right after New Years 2013 and I want to say that Monroe had it’s grand opening July 2013.

I don’t know who did the décor for the spot, but it is AMAZING! I have to say this place looks NOTHING like Wish. They gutted it and gave it a cool LA meets New York vibe. The bar has completely moved locations within the venue, but there is a HUGE DJ boot that can watch the entire club. There is plethora of reserved only seating where one spot is really no better than the other… unless you have the spot right in front of the DJ.

Lorretta Brown came out to play to help raise money for HBU (Historical Black Universities) for Tom Joyner’s Foundation School of the Month Campaign, and Badu’s B.L.I.N.D nonprofit organization.

I can safely say the event was a success! Outside of the awesome music provided by Ms. Brown I have to say the FOOD was amazing. Especially the bruchetta! I have NEVER tasted bruchetta that amazing in my life! My soror asked the chef what he put in it… but he wouldn’t tell.
