The Black Series, Oh That's Nais...

 So elated about this collaboration I did with Nais lingerie. I met up with the brand designer Anais in The Bake shop in Williamsburg Brooklyn where she elaborated on her brand image as well as this feature called The Black Series. What stuck with me after departing that cute little bakeshop was the causality mixed with the sensuality of all her pieces. The feeling of being sexy in something that isn't too loud or too revealing. Sometimes a girl just need a little lace and tulle to make her feel divine everyday. 

NaiS teamed up with five New York influential bloggers that embraces women empowerment. Their goal is to break the ice and rule out stereotypes about lingerie. There are 5 designs influenced by the upcoming holiday season and every piece is handmade in their studio (you know I love handmade!). However this leggings set is ONLY available this week until Sunday for pre-order on their website  So you don't need to order it now, you need to order it "Right Now". Check out their blog in the future for other features as well. Really dope pieces.

The Accessory Shop...

 Since school finished I felt so guilty neglecting the shop. Just the load of focusing on graduation and starting a new job was overwhelming and sometimes upsetting considering that this is one of the things I love to do that is dear to my heart including the amateur photography. I feel excited when I make new things. When a product is almost finished (jewelry and photos), its like a rush of high (sounds so weird) I get that is filled with so much emotions and hope that I just can't wait to share it. 

I've been struggling with product image. Do I want a white back ground? Do I want anything in the background? Will it look tacky if anything is in the background. I tried doing just white background with white cardboard paper, however I have to edit each item and each time the white background comes out different which becomes very blocky and noticeable on the site. Soooo, I wanted to go outside for the accessory shoot yesterday but a quick change of plans resulted into this. I found a empty shelve in my home that I wanted to use visually for in a long time. The jar, flower pot and candle were already there just used it at props. 

The shop got a lovely facelift and dope new items. Check it out!

Cocoa bee...

Post Summer...

Well maybe I can not call it post summer yet when it is only early September. Though I hate when it ends, it feels as if it is the shortest of all four seasons. One thing though, I'll miss this hat, I wore it this whole summer. So longing for a summer hat with full sun protection, a wide cool brim, and that is stylish, has ended, however it sucks that it is time to put it away! When I just started getting use to having something on top of this Afro of mine.
