OOTD: BDAY || 23 Earthstrong

23 years ago…August 18th at 7:04pm…a young G was born into the world.

A young Goddess that is…

And in this lovely season of the Leo, I celebrate my birth and another year dwelling in this beautiful Earthly realm.

I am entirely GRATEFUL.

Grateful to have family & friends that genuinely care about me.

Grateful to be living my life in the city I have always dreamed.

Grateful for vision, creativity, and inspiration.

Grateful for all the love in my life.

I am as passionate & inspired as ever to fulfill my God-given destiny in the Earth, and live my dreams in the process.

And as I turn 2-3

{2+3 = 5}

I thank the Almighty Creator for all the grace upon my life and this year shall be a year of success, freedom, joy, & loving light! I declare it!

THE DAY

Had a lot of birthday fun! Triiin gave me the royal treatment. From delicious breakfast in bed, home spa treatments, an impromptu BDAY photoshoot, a beautiful homemade cake of perfection, plenty of blunts, wine, & tango lessons! Not to mention a delicious gourmet dinner and awesome gifts. I truly felt like a Leo lioness Queen.

My family sent their beautiful birthday wishes such a manner that there was no way that I could not feel the love. They also sent me a b-day package that arrived perfectly on today, but my apartment manager left her office early, so I couldn’t get it 😦 . However I’m still happy about the package and so excited to see whats inside! My mom always sends something right on time that’s just what I want/need. Some intuition on that woman… not to mention our connection 🙂 . (P.S. since first starting this post I have seen whats in the package! &it was right-on-time gifts, as usual 🙂 ). It’s my first birthday that we haven’t been able to see each other and I miss ’em! But I know they were all with me in spirit.

IMAGE , my friend & an amazingly dope artist, also played a part in making my birthday special! Not only did he give me the gift of a beautiful piece of art to hang on my wall, he gave me a beautiful handmade necklace to serve as wearable piece of art as well! He also took Triiin & I for a lovely day of drinks, desserts, and good vibes 🙂

OOTN: Dancing Under Disco Lights

Hello Lovely Spiiirits!

This past Thursday night Triiin & I went out dancing with our friend Kwith. We went to a spot called Footsies that was full of good music & good vibes. Here are a couple shots from the night as well as what I was wearing. I couldn’t take any good outfit shots until after so excuse the deteriorating condition of my chunky braidout, lol.

A Belated OOTN

Okay, Confessions of a Fashion Blogger: I’m really doing this post for no fashionable reason at all, but simply because I miss my little sister, Janae’a. She came out to visit me last week and its safe to say that I’m slightly saddened by her current absence :/.

However…

I know that you guys don’t care to hear me whining like a big baby soooo

I will get on to something fashion related….my outfit!

My sister and I were headed out to party with a group of my friends. Before I get into my outfit though, I must explain to you all the massive halo of hair atop my head. I had blown my hair out earlier that day in hopes to straighten it, but for a number of reasons I never got around to it. I had no clue what to do with my hair so I said what the heck, ill just be free and rock my big, crazy hair in all it blowdried glory!

Ok…now the outfit…forreal this time…

Patterned Top: Gift

Tank: Walmart-$6.99

Skirt: F21-$8.80

Camel Wedges: Payless – Gift

Juicy Couture Bag (not in the photos) : Juicycouture.com $169 (i got it on sale!)

I dressed my sister for the night as well and did her makeup! She is wearing…

Dress: F21-$19.80

Levi Strauss Jean Vest: mom

Black Oxfords: Thrifted-$1.25

Until Next Time!

XOXO Jaz’

OOTD: Dabbling in Aztec

Today was a blazin’ hot day in the southern United States. I spent the majority of it inside filing papers and preparing for final exams (session 1 is almost over, yippeee!!). This is how I faired the weather today..

Gold Hoops: Beauty Supply – $2

Gray Tank: Old Navy – $9

Jean Shirt: Walmart – $10

Belt: Forever 21 – $8.80

Aztec Skirt: Forever 21

Sandals: Don’t remember – $9

The jean shirt was worn in the cold offices and classrooms that i spent much of my time in today. Outdoors, the jean element came straight off, otherwise i’d risk a heat stroke. This outfit is centered around the skirt. A touch of aztec never hurt anyone! &if you glance at this little aztec number, you’ll see I got a little mint in there too…trend bonus!

Until Next Time!

XOXO Jaz’

OOTN: Cobalt, Black, & Kickback

Hola chicas (and chicos if your reading, shoutout to you) ! I’m here with an Outfit of the Night for you guys. It was yesterday, June 8th and I guess I was in a really striped-mood yesterday (given what i was wearing earlier that day). The occasion was a kickback/house party of sorts, for a friend of mines birthday. I wanted to look spruced up, but not overly dressy or clubby to be just sitting in someone’s house. So this is what I chose…

ImageImageImageImageImage

Striped Dress (worn as a top): Forever 21 – $19.80

Chain Necklace: Forever 21 – $7.80

Ring: Forever 21 – $6.80

Belt: Forever 21 – $8.80

Bubble Skirt: Forever 21 – $11.80

Sandals: Don’t remember – $9

Purse: Charlotte Russe – $9

(whoa, just realized exactly how much of this outfit came from forever 21, yowzers!)

This look could have been made more downtown-club scene ready by adding heels, wearing the strapless top as the dress it really is, or wearing a bold lip. However, for the type of event I was attending, I feel like this combination was just right.

What do you guys think? Like it? Hate it? Let me know in the comments below.

Until Next Time!

XOXO Jaz’
