Draw Me

Received this fashion illustration that Vancouver based artist Jason, of, sketched of me a couple weeks ago. I love how stylish and fun his illustrations are, and he manages to catch everyone's outfits that he sketches out perfectly. So talented.

I've actually been meaning to post it up earlier, but I'm currently in the Washington D.C./Virginia area for a semi quick trip (2 weeks considered quick?) visiting family and such. It’s been nice getting out of San Francisco a bit, and great fun exploring/doing not so familiar activities at the moment. Surprisingly, I went fishing today. I mean, really? I baited the hook myself too. #CountryRealness

Thanks for the illustration, Jason! Check out more of Jason's work on his site for daily outfit posts and other fashion illustrations like these.  Also follow him on his instagram and twitter RunJaceRun for more updates from Jason himself. See you guys when I get back!

Skies Out, Thighs Out

Took these photos some odd weeks ago with Imelda. Obviously it wasn't any time this past week given that San Francisco's ugly August weather has been forcing me to layer up quite a bit. Not to mention the strong winds has been messing up my up-do.

I got into a conversation with Cody about the expansion of SF, and how it seems to be becoming another desirable city to move to, right beside NYC and LA. I mean, there was 2 recent blockbuster movies out this summer that took place in San Francisco (Planet of the Apes, and Godzilla)... and not so long ago, Dwayne Johnson was filming scenes from his up coming movie here, and Terminator 5 (who knew there was a part 4??) was being filmed here as well. When Hollywood steps in, that has to mean something, right?

Actually, the fact that the SoMa area is always under construction is a clear sign that SF is expanding... not outwards, but upwards. Every time when I pass by the area, it seems like some new building project is going on, and something is always being knocked down or renovated. I wonder how the City by the Bay will look 10 years from now... or how much more populate it will be.

Unbothered Or Nah?

Hiiyyeee! Had one of those ain't worried about nothin' √† la French Montana type of weekends. Which could be why I'm in such a good mood for a Monday. Ha! Spent the weekend playing with baby nieces at the beach, watched a screening if Clueless at Dolores Park, spent quality time with my boyfriend... I mean, what is there to be worried about?

I received a gift card courtesy of a couple weeks ago, and this pocket square was one of the 4 items I chose from their collection of menswear accessories. In all honesty, a simple pocket square is the oldest trick in the book to give your outfit a pop of color or a way to tie your entire look together. I like to wear them casually, with a simple cotton blazer, and a pair of colored chinos.

Thank you for the gifts. Everyone make your way over there for a mass collection of menswear accessories to add into your wardrobe.

In other news, how many of you guys heard Beyoncé's Flawless Remix featuring Nicki Minaj? #Fiyah right? It's getting me pumped for Bey and Jay's On The Run Tour tomorrow here in San Francisco... See you there, Booshes!
