RIP PRINCE

Prince is one of the first artists that I became familiar with and have loved him for as long as I’ve had an opinion on music. I’m still finding it hard to fathom that Prince is done with worldly existence. Forever glad that I got to see him live. Rest In Purple Paradise, Prince.

CAMO

Camo has been on my radar since I can remember having any sense of personal style. It’s easily the only pattern that I gravitate to and, despite the peaks and troughs of menswear fades, is a constant in my wardrobe.

This camo bomber jacket is an Edwin sample from a few seasons ago that didn’t go into production. It’s an easy transition piece that’s also great for layering under oversized monument coats. I love the contrast of soft femininity and utilitarian vibes which I often find hard to balance day to day but I think I managed it here.

CALIENTE

 

This past weekend, your girl turned the ripe old age of dirty thirty. People have been asking me how I feel and, honestly, it’s no different. I’d been dreading it for the past 12 months but I woke up on Sunday morning, sat in the armchair at my parents’ house and watched WWE, just like I always used to. I had a grand day with my family and my boyfriend. We watched the West Indies cricket team pull through from near defeat to win the T20 series and ate lots of food.

Marilyn Rondon (aka @calientechica) is an artist, boxing coach and zine-maker that I fux with heavily. I love her style, I love her message and I love that she promotes self-love so you know I had to cop. The gold plated “Caliente” nameplate chain is from a collaboration between Marilyn and  Vida Kush (@vidakush). I’ve been wanting a nameplate (with my name on it) for the longest time now so this will do in the meantime.
