Come Down the Rabbit Hole with Us

 

Hi! I have been fast at work with sessions, shoots, editing, and magazine shoots!  Did I mention I have a full time 9-5 job in a corporate setting?  LOL.

Recently I worked with an amazing model named Maria for her modeling portfolio.  Maria was BEYOND amazing!  Even though I’m not done with editing I wanted to show you guys a quick video I put together.  Now I am NOT a videographer… and perhaps at my next shoot I will have one, but I did want to create a small promo video of Maria.

I LOVE shooting boudoir sessions.  They fun, sexy, and liberating.  If you even THINKING about doing a session just go ahead and do one!  If you’re in the Dallas area please contact me for pricing and availability!

All White Everyting, Urban Jungle Fashion, UrbanJungleFashionA

I know it’s been a very long time since I posted an Outift of the Day.  It’s crazy.  After an event that would put any normal person out for months has actually made me stronger.  I feel so different right now.  I know before I wanted to come back… but honestly, I wasn’t ready.  Now I feel it everywhere inside of me.  Believe it or not.  I’m a way different person.  I am the authentic version of who I need to be.  There is something in me that’s back.  Completely.

The Fun. The Fearless.  The Truthful. The IDGAF Korin.

I feel more focused.

I feel happier.

I feel like I’m getting back to the person I’m supposed to be.

The feeling is invigorating.

The feeling of “no worries” is truly amazing.

Signs I’m happy #1

When Korin rocks all white errrrything.

White is my FAVORITE color to wear.

It’s been my favorite thing to wear since I was baby Korin.  LOL.

It’s funny, most of everything I’m rocking came from recent travels in 2014.

The Top from San Diego

Ring, Earrings & Giraffe bracelet from Columbus.

… okay so maybe not most of it. But a good amount.

Also, I hate to brag, but how amazing is my skin looking?  It’s dark and very clear.  I LOVE my complexion.  It’s rich, beautiful, and authentic.  I love how my skin contrast against the all white.

Yes, there will be more this week.

Fourth of July Summer Sales are Here!!!!

Bold Baja Weekender Bag, Forever 21, 01 Bold Baja Weekender Bag, Forever 21, 01 Bold Baja Weekender Bag, Forever 21, 01

Check out this AMAZING bag that I picked up from Forever 21 online today!  Ever since I laid my eyes on this carrier I have wanted it.  I have no idea why I didn’t pick it up in the first place.  Oh, I do.  I was on a mission to find clothes for my boudoir clients and did not want to spend any money on myself.  The bag was priced at $28.  However, TODAY ONLY, the bag is on sale for $19!  Eeeek!!!  That’s about a 33% discount. So of course I picked it up.  Target has a really cute dup that you can find HERE but the price is $35.  I didn’t get it because the quality did not seem that good and I fell in love with the Forever 21 pattern.

Street Chic, Gold Bracelet,

I also dropped this dope gold bracelet in my bag! I really can’t wait to rock this bad boy while out on the weekends or working on shoots!  Or in JAPAN this Fall…

On top of it all Forever 21 has FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $21!  So I got everything for less than $25 (including the tax)!  I can’t wait to show you guys that bag when it comes in next week.  I plan on using it as my gym bag.  I’m tired of those reusable totes breaking on me.

Below are some other items from the sale that are great contenders!  Hurry up and pick them up because the sale ends soon!

Click the photos to take you to the product

Bags

 

Shore Thing Canvas Backpack

Shore Thing Canvas Backpack, Forever 21

If I lived in San Diego… or near any beach.  I would have picked this bad boy up!  I love the nautical free loving style that it’s giving off.  It’s 19×14 measurement is big enough to stick your beach towel, water, good, mp3 player, speakers, and coco butter in!

Iconic Faux Leather Messenger Bag

Iconic Faux Leather Messager Bag, Forever 21

I think this is a good day to day bag or even when you are heading the movies with your friends.  Throw on a white tank, black skinny jeans, gold hardware jewelry, and this bag and you will be street chic ready!

Versatile Faux Leather Tote

Versatile Faux Leather Tote, Forever 21

I like my bags simple and with structured,  and while I’m into the “tote” look I do love good style.  I really love how the gold plates at the end add a bit of “street” to the look.  This bag would have been another great choice for my cool chic gym bag, but I really don’t like the fact that it doesn’t have a zipper at the top.  I like to really overstuff my clothes, good, and personal items in a bag.

Runaround Faux Leather Satchel

Runaround Faux Leather Satchel, Forever 21

I REALLY like this burnt pink color!  I didn’t pick up this bag because it was way too small for my life.  I’m in Texas after all and EVERYTHING is really big.  I think this is another cute summer running around day option.  I also think it would be cute for the airport.  You could place your wallet, phone, and tablet in it and call it a day.  If this bag was a bit bigger I would have picked it up and made it the perfect camera bag for my Nikon.

Favorite Striped Carryall

Favorite Striped Carryall, Forever 21

This bag is CHIC!  *ugh* If I was a frequent flyer I would scoop this bag boy up (mistake but I’m keeping it).  Now this is a VERY versatile summer bag.  It’s big enough for your day uses, stylish enough for pretty much every outfit, and big enough for all the important things in your life.  I would have picked this up, but even at $17 I don’t think I would have gotten the cost per wear out of it.

Headwraps & Snapbacks

Garden Goddess Wire Headwrap

Floral Headwrap, 01, Forever 21

At $2.50 you really can’t complain.  I am feeling this great summer pattern.  It’s perfect for Sunday brunches while sipping mimosas on patio against the misters.

Mod Polka Dot Wire Headwrap

Polka Dot Headwrap, Forever 21

This is WAY too girly for my taste, but I still had to place it on this list.

Garden Girl Headwrap

 Floral Headwrap, 02, Forever 21

I am feeling floral for the summer!  This white one is cute, but the black one is what I should have added to my cart!  *ugh* I’m so upset that I missed that.  There really isn’t a reason to buy it now.  I wish there was an option to let you add on items to your order after you made a purchase if it hasn’t finished processing. *ugh*

Street-Cool Swag Snapback Cap

Swag Snap Back Cap, Forever 21

I am SOOOOOOOOOO dislike the word #Swag, but I couldn’t help but to add this fun cap to the list!  Wear a white tank, black cut off jeans, some Adidas high tops, and throw this cap on and you will look street chic on 1.5 seconds!

 

It feels really great to write again!  Thank you so much to S for stepping in the last couple of weeks to let you guys know we still walk this earth! 

Please leave a comment below and tell me where you’re shopping this holiday weekend!

How to Wear a Trench Coat

Sorry about yesterday y’all.  My evening DID NOT go according to plan.  I wish there was a way to plan life to where when things get out of your control you can still get things done when you want it and in a timely manner.  Nonetheless, there really isn’t reason to harp on the past.  We are currently in the present and we need not to take that granted.

Yesterday while I was editing I finally was able to catch up on my YouTube subscriptions.  I have to tell you guys that if you have wi-fi in  your home then you NEED to get Google Chromecast.  I live and DIE by it.  Well, actually I have a love hate relationship with it, but it’s mostly love.  Google Chromecast is wonderful for me because while I edit my photos I can still keep up with all my favorite YouTubers, watch current releases, or new shows all from the power of my phone or laptop right to my TV.  I don’t have cable and have not had cable in about three years.  Nor do I plan to ever get it.  So while I edit I watch fashion OOTD, Vlogs, or what’s going on in news.

 No.  Google did not pay me for that.  I just REALLY love Chromecast.  Maybe next week I will do a review on the device. 

 I say all that today that I watched Chriselle Lim’s newest video that shows 20 different ways to wear a trench coat.  I’m in Texas so it may be too hot for the most part to rock a trench this time of year, but I feel as though if I lived in the Northeast or Northwest part of the country this may be a go-to-style for me.

 

Let me know which look you guys liked the best!

 

Yes, a post will be up tomorrow!

Hey guys!

 

I am back!  Well, I plan on doing the 365 project as of today, April 01st.  I debated on when I was going to start doing it because on Saturday I will be flying out to Cali for the week.  However, I do have enough OOTD (outfit of the days) for the beginning of the month.  Right now, since I’m in the middle of fashion rediscovery for myself I figure this would force me to do other things… like make sure I dress cute.

 

Believe it or not I have been so incredibly lazy with what I wear.  To the point where it’s teetering on the IDGAF Level 5 realm.  Yeah… it has come to the point where I find a clean pair of pants and a shirt that may or may not match and then run out of the house.  Even when I shoot it’s all about the Adidas work performance gear.  It’s hard to get excited about clothes because I have nothing to wear.

 

I am excited about Cali because that may allow me to get a breathe of new air.  I want to see what the style is out there and  gather inspiration.  Also, I’m hoping to hit up some boutiques there that I couldn’t necessarily find in Dallas and just change the style game up.  In Cali I will be hitting up two cities and I may or may not have some vlogs while I’m out.

 

Since 2014 will be dedicated to more travelling I think I may do vlogs while I travel.  I’m deciding if I should do every day… but I think I may be too busy for everyday material so I’m leaning towards a compilation of the week.

 

Nonetheless, I’m super excited to hit the West Coast up because the last time I was there was about four or five years ago.  It’s a been long time coming.

 

Another exciting thing!

 

I HAVE A STUDIO!

 

Yes!  My studio is based out in the Bishop Arts District in Dallas.  Once I have competed the website I will share with you guys.  I have taken some amazing pictures so far.  Case in point this one below of my Sorority Sister!

 

I have good looking sisters, don’t I?

 

J

 

You know what else is new?!

 

I will now be concentrating on Boudoir and Portrait photography!  Yes!  While kids and weddings are cool and everything I just get more love and better photos from Boudoir and Portrait work.  I love contacting with people one on one to bring out the best for the photos.  In fact I have a new website and it’s called Wonderland Boudoir!

 

Yeah, that name is ah-mazing, isn’t it?

Below are some samples of recent work?

 

I really love the fact that I can actually see myself getting better.  It’s great not only know, but see progression in my work.  While I love my full body of work I will not take away the fact that I love it.  Even when I see past work I now see things  I could have done differently… but it’s great because I know how I could be better.  I really love that.

 

I really do that love that.

 

The NEWEST thing?

 

I have a remote now for my camera which will allow me to take more OOTD pictures!

 

That was another thing that stopped me.  The amount of time that it took to take these photos.  It wasn’t really the time, but I live in Downtown Dallas and there are always people walking around and want to stop and stare at what you are doing.  So I’m hoping my little device will allow me to shoot my pictures faster in one take and also allow for better pictures.

 

Wow?  Did I seriously just type all that?

 

Thank all of you for really hanging in there with me and this blog. Especially the last week were I was just super wordy in all my entries.  I have to give a shout out to S because the other week she really encouraged me to write the Kim Kardashian and Yeezy piece.  She also reminded me that I needed to scribe the “Too Old for Forever 21, but Too Young for Ann Taylor” piece.  After I finished those pieces it made me remember how much I just love writing.  That’s why I loved the blog. It is an creative outlet for me.

 

Well, there you have it people.  My first entry for the 365 project.  Which I will not only accomplish, but demolish.  Thank you all again for sticking with me… and I really can’t wait to jumpstart this.  If you aren’t already following me on YouTube  check me out at UrbanJungleFashion.  However, it’s not overly necessary as I will be posting all those videos on my blog as well.

 

In the comment below please let me know how everything is going on with you!

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.

Bachelorette Party Dress, 2014, Bebe

How to Look Professional and Fashionable to Work

As you guys know I started a new gig.  Since I’m not working in the IT field proper and working more in the corporate retail world life is a bit different.  The days seems longer and the dress code is way different.  If you guys… gals rather… have worked in IT then you know that the work attire is usually come as you are.  Wear a nice blouse, jeans, and any shoes will do.  They prefer nice dress shoes, but if you show up in sneakers they need to be super clean.

However, not in corporate retail land. 

I have found that I need to wear business casual everyday, and then on Friday I just have straight casual.

Since I have not had to wear work business casual in over four years it was difficult to see past the blue jeans that have taken over my closet.  However, this week I have been on fashion point with my looks.  With my new work schedule I’m going to try and take my OOTD photos at lunch so I can post them the next day.  However, I will take three of my favorite looks from this past work week and showcase them this coming week.

The problem I was having with business casual is how “stiff” it really looks.  I mentally had trouble with wanting to look professional but I wanted my own style to shine through.  After 30 days on the new job I think I may have found it.  Eureeka!

The above video showcases two of my favorite fashion bloggers and YouTube girls, Wendy and Jean.  Together they show great work and casual pieces that one can wear  and how to dress them down for after hours.  I can’t tell you which look I like the best because I think they are all great.  Jean is a great inspiration when it comes to showing both youth and class in her work attire.

I seriously can’t wait to show you guys the work outfits!

Let me know what you guys think in the comments below.  What was your favorite outfit?
