What's your power color? For as long as I can remember, mine has always been a shade of obnoxious cherry red. My business cards, my favorite shoes, my website branding - I always gravitate to red. So, after many months of debate, I finally decided to dye my dark auburn locks a bright red, just to switch things up and to see if red is my truly my power color. Despite a few mishaps due to my clumsiness - the white jacket pictured became red all along the collar thanks to night of dancing - I literally sweat my hair color out - I love it. I feel like a better, more confident and honestly, despite the color being "fake" - a more authentic version of myself.
This past Saturday, I was running around SoHo and the East Village and had time to grab coffee from my god, La Colombe, with my friend and fellow creative Corey Chalumeau. Corey's been shooting street style for awhile now so naturally, we turned our catch up session into a photoshoot. It was the first hot (20 degrees celsius plus!) day on the East Coast so I took advantage by doing minimal layering. The skirt I purchased from downtown boutique Blue and Cream after a shoot with Revolt TV during NBA All-Star. The mesh tee I picked up at Nike Lab during NBA All-Star as well while the Helmut Lang blazer is a staple in my wardrobe whenever I travel because it is so versatile. My lipstick is actually the same one that Agent Carter actress Hayley Atwell wears for her role. I ordered it a few months ago and it just so happens to match my hair perfectly - talk about a happy accident! Check out the details and photos below. More style editorials coming soon, stay tuned!
