Memo 176: Sweating the Denim Trend

To: All
From: Me

Subject: Denim + Sweats

Guess who's loving the denim trend this season? Me!

Let me explain. Denim can look good whether your pieces are from H&M or Gucci especially with the help of a good tailor. It's pretty amazing on tons of different body types and there are so many ways to incorporate the trend with all of the denim pieces that are available. 

I paired my denim pieces with a pair of H&M sweatpants and neutral accessories. I initially wanted to go for a completely all denim look but the color of my denim pieces neither complimented nor coordinated with each other. They just didn't get along! 

Trend Tip: Pay attention to your denim colors when opting for an all denim look.

Blue and white stripes will make it alright!
Throw in some paisley and you might get a little hazy
Add shoes that shine bright whether day or night
I'm a poet and I didn't even know it

Look out for my mixtape that's going to drop Summer 2015.
Anything sounds good over the right beat. Ask I Love Makonnen....

Memo 174: Floral and Denim Mash Up

Here lately, I've been holding back on a few rants. I pick up the phone to take it to Twitter, Facebook, or any Social Media outlet that is ready to listen. Then, I slowly put the phone down. "Back away from the phone, Tiff" and then I think to myself "What would Oprah do? How would Barack handle this?". Because let me tell you, Ba-Bee, people will try your spirit and test your patience. Won't they? Holla if you hear me.

I call my mom, instead, and then proceed to write a rant about not ranting. Thanks for letting me vent. Just know, we all get tried. All of us. What makes us different is what we decide to give energy and what we simply ignore. Give energy wisely.

On to the look, I've been feeling pretty floral-ly lately. Like, I just want to smell the roses, dance in the rain and eat ice cream for dinner. So, I created a little mash up with floral and denim mixed with some tassel and a dash of neon.
