I could not let Women's month go by without shouting out dope women that are doing some things. Over the last several months, I have made it my mission to incorporate more black owned, and women owned businesses on my blog. There are so many people doing dope things that it is enough room at the table for all of us. One brand that I want to share with my lovers is Kay Dupree. I first met her online on twitter and became hella cool tweeting every Thursday about Scandal. From there we met IRL and just hit it off. She is fellow Bronx gal, smart, funny, and has a cool line for plus size gals.
For example, this sweatshirt. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love graphic tee's. On any good day you will catch me in a tee, blazer and jeans. So when I checked out Kay's website, and saw this cutie of a sweatshirt I had to get it. I'm always buying tee's, if you can see my drawer you would shake your head, so I decided to get a sweatshirt. With Spring slowly creeping into these NYC streets, I feel this a great layer to wear as we transition into warmer weather. It's soft, warm, and of course it let's these people know, these curves out here are not to be played with. They should be praised. I am wearing a 1X (I wear 18/20 in tops) and its still roomy, so you can definitely stick your size.
I have been experimenting more these days with mixing different prints or different color combo's. One print I have been incorporating more these days is camo. These pants are oldies from goodies from Lane Bryant, but they do have a newer version out now. I love how the ease of joggers and these are great for gals on the go.
So for all the sneakerheads out there, they know that today is Air Max Day. It's a celebration of all things Air Max, and I am sharing my favorite, the Air Max 95. I have own these in soo many colors since they dropped 23 years ago, With all the different colors I have own over the years I will always come back to the original colorways- especially the neons. I am wearing a 6.5 in kids since I wear 8-8.5 in womens. That is the great thing when you wear shoes smaller than a woman's 9, you can wear kids sneaker and save you some money.
I love the mix of color and print with this look. Adding the metallic bomber added just the right finishing touches to this look. The bomber I'm wearing is sold out, but there are some great options from Simply Be, and the upcoming Hunter for Target collection that definitely fit into the athleisure aesthetic. Lovers, let me know what you think???
