What's Up With flyWill

I became more conscious of the garment industry when I was downsizing my closet. Here were all these amazing pieces I collected over the years of which a significant amount became damaged. Not major damages. Just a hole here or a rip there and some stains. Consignment stores wouldn't take it and I didn't understand the point of donating damaged clothes. Why should someone else wear clothes with holes in it. I decided to upcycle those damages pieces and flyWill was born. So instead of Goodwill. You got flyWill. I remix damaged clothing that has been donated to me. This top is made of damaged levi's and never used jersey textile that was left for waste as it had some discoloration in it. I felt like the discoloration made it cool. So this top and many other pieces were born out of those size 38 men's levi's. You can shop the looks

The Uniform

My deconstructed men's denim button up has become my post pregnancy uniform. I live in my Levi's. I wear this three times a week with 3 different pants that I made. I've become that girl that wears the same thing over and over again and it has been absolutely liberating during these months of nursing and loving my new little man. My denim button up goes with everything and messy nuances from my son doesn't take away from the cool of my shirt. As I became settled with my current look, knowing I no longer had to plan what to wear, I was relieved to have some me time and make a list of things I needed to get done for myself. One of those things is getting my eyes examined. Am beginning to have all those signs that I may need glasses. I've been mulling over it for a month and finally decided to make an appointment with my doctor.
I'm always amazed by how this universe works. I receive an email from marketing at Warby Parker about their new products. Literally the email pops up in my inbox moments after setting an appointment. I'm like oh yes! New products to review, I dig it, but with eyewear if I can't try them on, I can't cosign them. I have big eyes, big nose and full cheeks and I gotta do a fitting with frames in order to see what works well with my afrocentric features.
Well the folks at WP feel me and feel you too if you feel me.
I selected 5 frames from their website and they sent it over to me to try on. You have a few days to go through with your fitting.
You can choose a selection of both reading frames and sunnies.
I'm vibing a two tone get up for my face's uniform.
The Duckworth Cognac Tortoise and Bermuda Blue is my favorite.
The colors work for my skin tone as well as my denim uniform.
I love how the frames sit nicely on the bridge of my nose and the wings extend a bit beyond the lines of my face. But I'm just getting started with my fittings! Being a new mom means limited time being out doing fittings for myself. Having the opportunity to try the frames at my own convenience just makes perfect sense for my life right now. Now that I have the frames picked out for my reading glasses, I'm gearing up to try some additional sunnies from their new collection of sunglasses style. Let me know how your fitting goes! xodahling

For a late lunch a quick blouse switch, eases the stress of putting together another ensemble. Vegas is hot baby! So keeping it breezy in lightweight fabrics is the goal. Black and white stripes are classics you can't go wrong with. The silk blouse ups the casual vibes of the denim. So the look is effortless chic!

For late night eats and dancing the vibe is vibrant. Separates feel youthful and fun which is what being in Vegas is all about. The sheer top is sexy and thats the energy you want to convey.

This is how you stunt on them in Vegas. If you're planning a trip check out some of  the resort deals and start planning away with your Vegas style. Now what you do in your fits... well thats up to you!

The Helmet Newton exhibit, White Women, Sleepless Nights and Big Nudes was on my to do list as soon as I made my way West. Looking at the provocative photos all I could think is the preeminent influence Newton continues to have on current fashion photography. It is a format that still serves as the fashion engine that drives consumption. I posted some pics at
