LA Vibes

Moving from NYC to LA has definitely required some major adjustments.  After landing the perfect place, finding a fulfilling job and trying to build a new network you still have something very vital to think about in your day to day; that something being style.  I never want to compromise my style no matter where I live but I can say living in LA, you lean more towards cute and casual.  I found myself completely overdressed during my early visits to LA for like a nice outing or dinner because I was so used to the NY way of life.  Here you can simply wear a plain tee, biker jacket over the arm as a complimenting accessory or actually wear it once the night falls with nice booties and you’re all set.  Heels aren’t a must here in LA (thank goodness)

I say all that to say, I’ve adding a ton of tees to my everyday wardrobe.  Simplicity is key.  A nice tee with boyfriend or slim jeans and a fresh pair of vans can be worn Sunday-Monday and I’m loving it.  The look below showcases a Mondo Taco tee I grabbed from Goodwill for $1 and light washed jeans I snagged from Uniqlo for $9.  To lighten the look a bit, I wore classic neon yellow Van’s.  I thought this complimented well with the light denim and added a pop of color for a casual, spring look.  LA, I’m still learning and adjusting to the vibes here.  One thing for sure I am definitely becoming more aligned with comfy looks.  Be on the lookout for more comfy, casual looks from this citygal 😊

Forever 100

YG’s F*** Donald Trump Tour has made its way to NYC and he decided to have a pop-up hosted by Community 54.  I was able to make it conveniently after work to check it out thanks to my shared lyft ride for $4.75 :-). Upon entering, solid white hats embroidered with 4 Hunnid in red and solid red hats stamped with ‘Make America 400 Again’ lined the wall; the latter item was quite genius and goes great with the overall theme of the concert.  Kudos to YG and team for that one!  Tour shirts with a very fitting picture of YG and others, Kamaiyah being one, with all tour dates printed on the back, camo hoodies with 4 Hunnid printed in red and the solid white hoodie ‘Forever 100’ with the westside symbol were all available for purchase too.

Hoodies were $60, tees were $32 as well as the hats with the exception of the brown 4 Hunnid hat which was being sold for $38. Very reasonably priced merch if I do say so myself.  I decided to grab the camo hoodie.  I’m semi obsessed with camo for some strange reason and it just pairs nicely with a lot of things.  So many ways to rock it so be on the lookout for that later on the site.  I also grabbed the sticker pack which included 3 stickers for $5. Another good deal.  Hopefully this pop up will make it to other areas.  Take a look at pics I was able to capture below and please help make America 400 again.

LA meets NY

IMG_8244

East Village, NY has to have some of the best restaurants in New York City.  I stumbled upon this gem in search of a good happy hour in the area.  Unfortunately it ended at 7pm here so I missed the happy hour but boy did they make that up with the delectable dishes they have here.  The guacamole was so fresh along with the chips and the brisket tacos were simply amazing.  Rosie’s gave me an LA vibe when I dined there, especially since it was a 70-degree day in the city so all of the side doors were open to let the fresh air trickle in.  This will definitely be a good spot in the summer.  Check it out if you’re in the area and want tasty Mexican.
