Throwback Thursday | Essence Magazine Street Style Feature

Back in April of this year, I attended the 4th Annual Fashion 500 event hosted by The Block Association, one of NYC premier event planning groups.  The event took place on a Sunday afternoon and was hosted at the Rivington Hotel on the Lower East Side.  Many guest sat and had brunch, while others threw back cocktails, and enjoyed the music being projected from the speakers.  I did a little bit of both.

Well, upon my arrival I was stopped by a freelance photographer from Essence Magazine, she said she wanted to take a picture of me for their Street Style section.  So, today on Throw Back Thursday (#tbt).  I would like to share the picture.

What’s Your Style? Part II

I previously, asked readers to describe their style in three words or less.  I know three words isn’t much room to describe your style, so thanks to those who participated.  If you didn’t have a chance, you can answer here: What’s Your Style?

You may be wondering, how would I describe my style.  Personally, I feel my style is always changing and I’m always revamping it in some way.  So, for those who have difficulty answering this question, I get it!

So with that being said, I wanted to share one of my personal looks of the week.  I would describe this look as swanky with a little edginess.  Take a look!
