Pop, Block, Colors

wut is it? The big spring and summer trend: color blocking 
with bright colors. At first, I will admit I was not a huge 
fan of the trend, being more monochromatic, and drawn 
to earth tones. But since most of the brights are bottoms 
(bright colors against my face... eh not too good), I have 
grown to seriously praise this trend... It's refreshing, 
and brought life back to fashion. 

POP...

The pants were a size too big, but I made it work... 
boyfriend brights anyone? I like to keep it simple and 
not over style them, the pants say enough on their own, 
but do what you wish. Jump into this trend, they are to 
fun not to. 

And the shoot was so fun to prove it, thanks to Casino's 
great direction, and Ashley's clever prop suggestions.

… no words

This was why I started my blog, to touch and inspire
people, and be touched in return

I signed onto Facebook and got this incredibly moving
message from a girl I went to high school with...

 Hey sasha,
 I don't know if you remember me but I sort of knew you
back in BHHS. I know we don't talk lol but I am sort of
stuck in a pickle and I was hoping that you could give
me some suggestions. I have to shave my hair off for a
tumor removal and I CANNOT PULL OF A SHAVED
HAIR LOOK. I am more of like jcrew classic kind. and I
don't know what to do. I have always admired your  
fashionable sense and I was hoping that you could give
me some advice if you can? sorry for sending you a
message so randomly. But I really could use all the help
that I could get. Thanks! I love your blog! btw .

I definitely remember her, and good news, she only has to
shave part of her hair to remove a benign tumor. I did
some research and Alice Dellal proves this look can work
with anything, even though she has a punk, grunge  
aesthetic, she validates confidence can make it work.

Beautiful

Sexy

Classic

And of course bad ass

This look can work with any hair type, or color. And it's
a perfect excuse to rock head raps...

and bright, fun lipstick.

I don't think the partial shaved head should fall under
the  edgy or grunge/punk category. Life happens, and some
people have to shave their heads to prolong it. So be it,
this hair style works with anyone, because it says "I have
survived, and I am beautiful for that."... even if you are
the person who does it to make a statement, like Alice. 

Confidence is key, and hair is just a material attribute
to beauty, it grows back, and the person is what should
make up their radiance, not the mop on their head.  

Nat proves hair is minuscule to a persons beauty...


Even without makeup.

Bell of the Bell

wut is it? My obsession with high wasted bell bottoms. 
They are one of the best things to come out of 70's. 
They are simple, sexy, seductive... seriously what they 
do for the ass... can't argue there  

I had J Brand tweak one of their spring jeans, the Kiki, with a more dramatic flair for the birthday, because I knew it would be awesome, and they are.  Just observe and report...

This wash is perfect, and looks good with anything. 
The style team never ceases to amaze me.
