Okay let’s be real, I just chose this title so I could throw in some Biggie since I am currently on the East Coast…and maybe it’s a little appropriate. Monday I shot with Refinery 29 for a special collaboration coming up that I can’t reveal just yet but it was definitely one of my favorite shoots so far and I feel truly blessed to work with such amazing people and in general. The whole team is just pure awesomeness and the day was amazing, I’m really excited for the results. Woohoo! (My new favorite word to say- if you follow my Vine…you know this).

So this look is pretty basic but I spiced it up with some Vanessa Mooney pieces and this snakeskin clutch which added a pop of red…and dopeness, let’s be real. I may be vegetarian but I just don’t feel that bad for snakes…they scare me and they make such beautiful bags, shoes, belts etc. Call me crazy but I feel like being vegetarian allows me to wear animals because it evens out. Except fur, I only buy vintage furs because I really don’t support killing adorable fluffy creatures.

One last note. I have an epic quote for you from my daddio…I feel like this would be an awesome tattoo for on the bottom of your foot or ribs but I’m just being creative.

“Once you surrender to your vision, success begins to chase you.”

Ponder on those words of wisdom for a little.
