Fashion: Meet the Muse - Ikea


#IkeaInspo

Ikea. The home decor store that 20-somethings love. The easy to assemble furniture that most boyfriends hate. The worst place for couples — where one pillow can make or break your relationship. Ikea meatballs ... enough said.

Over the years, Ikea and its countless supply of furniture has inspired a generation of self proclaimed interior designers, but who would have thought that fashion's latest muse would be Ikea's classic blue shopping bag? Guess us New Yorker's can finally carry our laundry in a more fashionable, $2,145 Balenciaga knock-off rather than Ikea's $.99 Frakta bag.

Style: Weekends in the LES

#TheWiderTheBetter #ThatsWhatSheSaid

The Lower East Side will always be my favorite neighborhood. On the weekends, I love exploring the new shops, grabbing a bite to eat, and forcing my boyfriend to take OOTD pictures of me (Instagram boyfriend at it's finest). 

Event: Trap Yo Ass

#AllWeekendLong

Grab a drink and two step the night away with Shy Shonnie and I all weekend long!

Style: Cool For The Summer

#KeepingItCoolAllSummerLong

Summer has finally hit New York City and it is hot and humid AF.

If you're like me (a.k.a. a sweaty girl) you understand my struggle and why I prefer the cooler weather OR wearing nothing at all — with the exception of a good pair of sneakers.

Events: 1800 Tequila-Inspired Sam Rodriguez x PUMA Clyde Launch Party


 #VibingForPumaAndTequila

DJ at a Hypebeast event ... check!

As you all know by now, I've been tapping into a strong and not-so-hidden passion of mine and it has been quite a ride. It's crazy to think that a little over a year ago, I was spinning on my mini controller at my very first DJ gig in the LES. Fast forward to May 5th 2017, I had the dope opportunity to spin at Hypebeast's 1800 Tequila-Inspired Sam Rodriguez x PUMA Clyde Launch party at Extra Butter with the same controller that first got me on feet :).
