I recently did a photo shoot with (as a model) with photographer Rochelle Brock of Foreverfatleopard.com, for AFROPUNK FEST 2014. It was strange for me to be in front of the camera in that capacity but the experience was fun overall.
A few weeks later, B. Hawk Snipe of Pinnedxstitched.com, invited me to the AfroPunk Festival to see my images hung up in a mini gallery, of course I was excited to go, and of course I invited my fellow creative and friend, Angelica Vanessa. Bellow are images of what we wore, and what we saw.
I decided that I wanted to go with a denim on denim look and paired it with taupe boots and a taupe flowy vest, I also wore brassy jewels and a taupe bag with gold details to anchor the look. I wanted to be the triple C's (Comfy, Casual, Cute), as I was going to be walking around quite a bit.
What I wore:
- 3 Necklaces: Forever21, Wholesale district, Streetfair. $5-$10
- Vest from H&M. $10
- Denim Top from Avenue.com. $30 ( was $54, marked to $37, then coupon'ed to $30)
- Jeans from V.I.M. $12
- Boots from the late great Dots.com. $20
And here's the one and only Angelica Vanessa, rockin' a phenomenal color palette.
What She Wore:
- Necklaces from Street fairs. $3-$7
- Kimono from Marshalls. $19.99
- Top from Marshalls. $12
- Jeans from V.I.M. $13
- Boots from Macys. $50
Some of the lovely folks I deemed to have amazing style, they actually stood out in a crowd of people doing their best to do the same.
And of course the jewels were amazing, I would wear pretty much everything. I will do a more in-depth post on Manikmag.com about theses bad boys right here.
By the end of the day I was exhausted, but all in all I had fun with mi amigo, and was delighted by all the eye candy (People, Jewels, and Art).
