Growing up my mom used to dress me pretty crazy. I give her a pass because it was the Early 90's but some outfits there is just no excusing. There was this one taupe dress with a huge sunflower on each of the shoulders *cringe*. But all in all my mom doing that pretty much shaped the way I look at fashion. The things that My eyes go for are normally the strangest craziest patterns or abstract shapes. I Love reds and Cobalts. Blacks , golds, greens basically all the bold colors that most people stay away from. Coming back from Antigua our flight had a layover in Jamaica. Of course we took that opportunity to shop in the airport. In the airport I saw A girl waiting for a flight. I couldn't stop staring at her. She was tall and bronze ..basically everything that I take for granted about myself. She was wearing a patterned dress and had her hair in a high bun with a pair of Ray-Ban wayfarers on. She had simple black flip flops on her feet but she honestly didn't need anything more than that. I Didn't speak to her but I coveted her whole outfit on the flight home. When I got back to New York I tried to find a dress to recreate the outfit and this was what I Found.
