S P E E C H L E S S | B U T T E R F L i E S

Tears fall every lonely moment you get
Puzzled thoughts of never experiencing concrete love
Desires of being intimate and sincere with someone
Experiencing passion unheard of
Cuddling close without resistance...
Saddens me that you've never had it
Never felt it
Ever experienced it...
I hurt when you hurt,
Hoping that you feel what I've felt!!
What if I told you that I know love?
I can show you how?
Experience what it feels like having been in love?
What if I want you to fall so deep in love with me that our heart beats sync in harmony?
Or to share living in the moment?
Love is indescribable 
feels like music
Like speechless butterflies
Feels like kissing me with perfection every time our lips meet
Not being afraid to let go
Being free with no boundaries
Smiling just because you smiled
Touching me like its your first time
Hugging me like you're afraid to let go
Experiencing verbal consistency 
Pressing through emotional instability 
Wiping each others tears
Missing me daily
Omitting deep insecurities 
Outlaying your deepest thoughts
Discussing untold secrets 
Finishing each others sentences
Me crossing your t's 
You dotting my i's
I want you to allow your heart to be used
I desire to color the dark spots that have darken your heart
Feeling like no one cares
Like no one wants to f@ck your mind
Always anticipating that you're being talked about
Not feeling appreciated
Going the extra mile for people countless times
Seeking to find no inch in return 
Thirsty for attention
Aiming to be noticed
Masking your tears
I see it 
I see you
I understand you 
Even when you don't understand yourself
I care
I anticipate your thoughts
I'll never degrade your name 
I appreciate you entirely
I'll give you that inch
I aim to notice you
Your every move, word, gesture
I'll wipe your tears
You could love me but you don't know how
Secret is you've under estimated your heart 
You know how to love but you're fearful of laughing at your own mistakes 
Stumbling on your own blocks
Blowing bubbles with your own gum
Spilling juice on your own shirt
Loving yourself
It's simple
I can love you until forever
But what's the use if you don't feel it
Rewrite your own Genesis
Listen to those inner butterflies
Start where falling in love matters the most
With yourself 
Then you'll be falling in love all over again

...rambling thoughts...


You give us scripts 

With our lines written on the page in pencil
We surpass certain lines because we haven't been instructed to act out our lines yet
When we see our lines we prepare to speak but we're silenced by your eraser
We speak upon your selfish request
We only act when you want a show

THEY'LL FORGET YOUR NAME SOON



Back against two mirrors 
Three mirror imaging
Pyramid focus
Me
Myself
I

It's a difficult place when it gets like this

Looking through Me
Let's get deep
Introductions are in order I assume

Pardon Me, HELLO MY NAME IS HER....I love when you keep up with Me....I need to keep an active conscious....I can easily loose Myself in Myself.....HELLO MY NAME IS HER....it's lonely there.....yet comforting.....easier that way.....yet harder to cope.....MY NAME IS HER....tears are colder there.....yet loud enough to cry out.....rambling thoughts.....yet clear enough to roam.....NAME IS HER....emotions are high there.....yet the attention is low....I could peek from there....yet no one sees me....IS HER....you've seen Me....yet they haven't noticed Me....they'll forget your name soon..............yet they remember HER. 

Laying deep inside Me 
Don't wake me up 
I'm in too deep 

Looking through Myself
Let's get deep
Introductions are in order I assume

Pardon Myself, HELLO MY NAME IS HER....I love when you keep up with Me....I need to keep an active conscious....I can easily loose Myself in Myself.....HELLO MY NAME IS HER....it's lonely there.....yet comforting.....easier that way.....yet harder to cope.....MY NAME IS HER....tears are colder there.....yet loud enough to cry out.....rambling thoughts.....yet clear enough to roam.....NAME IS HER....emotions are high there.....yet the attention is low....I could peek from there....yet no one sees me....IS HER....you've seen Me....yet they haven't noticed Me....they'll forget your name soon..............yet they remember HER. 

I live in Myself
Laying next to Me
Who am I....
Introductions are in order I assume

Pardon Me, HELLO MY NAME IS HER....I love when you keep Me me up....I need to keep an active conscious....I can easily loose Myself in Myself.....HELLO MY NAME IS HER....it's lonely there.....yet comforting.....easier that way.....yet harder to cope.....MY NAME IS HER....tears are colder there.....yet loud enough to cry out.....rambling thoughts.....yet clear enough to roam.....NAME IS HER....emotions are high there.....yet the attention is low....I could peek from there....yet no one sees me....IS HER....you've seen Me....yet they haven't noticed Me....they'll forget your name soon..............yet they remember HER.

"Scared Of Mixed Prints? ....Keep It Simple & Throw A Mutual Color With It" 



Men, let me you show you how to mix up dope prints and fly capes with elegance and confidence! ...don't be afraid to mix print ...you just need the right neutral colors and the right accessories to tone down the "busyness" when it comes to print. 

..and I know what you're thinking "isn't a cape for women?"..the answer is NO! Men, don't be afraid to wear a cape; just think of it as an over-sized scarf! Just because most women wear capes doesn't make it a feminine accessory.. men have the capability to make anything look masculine; i.e. a "man bag"...but that's a subject for another day! HA!! So I say wear a cape......ONLY IF YOU'RE MAN ENOUGH!

...okay men! I'm done "getting you togetha"
With this style session I decided to use prints that have the simplest colors in them; black & white! So I decided to mix stripes with a floral print and evened out the "busyness" with a smooth tone like olive green. Now yes you can mix prints with colors like mustard yellow, brick red, aqua blue, royal blue, or burnt orange.....BUT I chose olive green to keep it simple for that guy who's a virgin to incorporating mixed prints into their wardrobe. 



To fully accomplish mixed prints be sure to keep your shoes and accessories solid with no extra prints added to them... otherwise you'll look like "a country confused uncle" who carries a full set of keys everywhere he goes (your favorite uncle). Anyway, just pay attention to the details of my color choices in this style session. Enjoy!

This look I chose focuses on how you can take one of your sharp suits and dress it down for those days when you don't feel like getting dressed up, but you still want to make sure you look polished and dapper. Men, how can you achieve this look without looking like " you just threw on some clothes" or "confused". It's simple! Pair your suit with some shirts that don't require a tie, like a collarless button down (below), a premium quality tee (preferable a v-neck or scoop neck), or a long line tee that will give your suit some edge and street style.

I had the pleasure of styling the infamous DJ TONI*K!! She's always hella dope, so when I chose the wardrobe for this photo shoot I wanted to give her a classic, polished look that complimented her beauty and rare bone structure. She has this bold bone structure that most models in the fashion industry would skip a couple of meals for! I made sure to go for colors like maurine blue and dark textures and patterns for her wardrobe so that we could use her platinum blonde hair as an accessory to complete her look. And her Make-Up Artist/Hairstylist Deon added the perfect touch to give her that radiance that matched her personality on and off the turn tables. The chemistry was so dope between all of us that it made it easier for the photographer Toni Tones to do her job with ease; she's amazing as always! We were the PERFECT team for this shoot...the energy between us was inimitable.



"DJ TONI*K, one of the most  influential female DJ's gracing the Tri-State area! She is knwon within the fashion industry for her custom-tailored mixes matching her sexy and eclectic style. From designing soundscapes for Fendi and Saks Fifth Avenue, to mobbing the dance floors from Soho to Aspen, Toni*K is the caviar of female DJ's. Living in New York, and inspired by the world, her Russo-Ghanaian style specializes in creating an array of mixes that consistently excites and amazes her audience."
