1.What is you go to pick in your wardrobe ??

 

I don’t have a go to wardrobe pick really only because my mood changes on a daily. I usually dress based on my mood that day. But if it was a lazy day I’d go for jeans, t shirt and flats.

 

2. What do you do go to school ?? Job??

 

I currently work at a showroom while designing my next project on the side (JoVoc.)

I graduated from Los Angeles Trade Technical College a couple of months ago its crazy to know i got through all the craziness. Congrats to all graduates we made it through the struggles.

 

3. Something you can’t live without??

 

I most definitely can’t live without my phone I’m sure like most of us.  I feel like my whole life is in my phone.

Fashion wise I can’t live without a pair of heels and a bad LBS( Little Black Dress)

 

4. Why fashion blogging? And what’s your style in your own words???

I’m a girl of emotions and little words so I like to express my emotions through my style, I feel like people see me through my way of dressing.

My style is Versatile and experimental.

Fashion blogging is most definitely the best way to let others view your thoughts on fashion. I’m pretty stoked to show you guys what Khasi, Jo and I have to bring to the table.

1. What is you go to pick in your wardrobe ?? My one thing I have deep love for is my snake skin nike slides 🙂

2. What do you do go to school ?? Job?? I graduated At Los Angeles Trade Tech with a AA degree in Fashion Design. I work at Macy’s as a visual merchandiser, I love my job because a woman can carry a ladder too and look great doing it. BOOM! I also have my own Company called Poisoneux. Its a brand centered around my specific style, for the sporty girls that want to look like and feel like women.

3. Something you can’t live without?? I can’t live without food……. defiantly food, and of course I can’t leave the house without a necklace and earrings on.

4. Why fashion blogging? And what’s your style in your own words??? I figure this would be the perfect outlet to show my point of view in styling. Im actually very new to it and I want to use this to experiment and share of course. I use to play sports growing up and I happen to be an extreme tomboy (I have a big brother). Growing up I still wanted to incorporate my sporty casual with me growing up and being a woman…..well sexy.So, Sexy ,sporty,and comfortable thats me.

Outfit of the day Kanye way

 

 

Ok so sorry I have been so M.I.A. guys I have been buried in finals ! Fun stuffffff. Any who I am a huge online shopper the only problem I have with it is that you can’t actually see the clothes. I went to the new European urban t-shirt www.rad.co/us . I honestly love this site and it has so many shirts for great prices. The only thing was that the shirt on the picture and in real life looked very dull. I was a bit disappointed but I will take this as a lesson in False advertisement. But don’t get me wrong I love both of my shirts very much!

BackPack Boy

This is one of the most inniovative things I have seen in menswear. Menswear is a market where they don’t have much elbow room. Either you get a really nice pant suite , or you get something that looks like Kanye West. I think with this on the messenger bag has gone all the way.Raun2

Teen Vogue For Me

I have a big thing for fashion magazines I always have. I have a fettish for either Ten Vogue or just Seventeen magazine. To me either one will do but Teen Vogue seems to have more of the high fashion aspect I like more.

West Side Woman

West Side i am moving. I am the queen at laid back fashion. I bought this button up for Goodwill for $4.99 and D.I.Yed these shorts and also this crop top believe it or not this crop top use to be a very ugly denim dress. This outfit reminds me of a flag that just threw up and the colors happened to land on me. lol But i love every bit of this outfit.
