I tend to borrow a lot of style from the boys. I decided to prep it out and pay homage to the "Miyuki-zoku" and "Black Ivy"youth culture during Seoul Fashion Week...

I'm no stranger to sprinkling menswear in my wardrobe. I draw a lot from preppy style or as down south we affectionately refer to as #dopeboyfresh. One of muses is "#BlackIvy" a tribute to the art, style, and culture of HBCU(S) (Historically Black Colleges & Universities) that was created by Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs of Street Etiquette. I also love the aesthetic of the #Miyukizoku; a group of Japanese youth who reinterpreted the American "Ivy Style" trend in the Ginza district of Tokyo during the 1960's. I curated a vintage highschool jacket with some burgandy brougues during #SeoulFashionWeek with my favorite gold accessories.

“Whether its, Black Ivy, Dope Boy Fresh, or Miyuki-zoku preppy fashion represents an aesthetic of style, high expectations, and smarts.”

In between shows I went to lunch at the nearby JW Marriot Dongdaemun. The lounge has a clear view of Seoul's famous East Gate.

#MiniKorea was gracious enough to chauffer me and my boo to our #SeoulFashionWeek shows. For Yohan Kim's #Yohanix presentation, I chose to wear a burgandy and cream vintage HS varsity jacket that looked like the one Michael Jackson wore in Thriller when he transformed into a werewolf, a #vintage #Givenchy top I got in Seoul, cream skirt and bag I picked up in the underground mall in the Express Bus Terminal train station at I made to look lux with a #VOLON tassle, burgandy and cream #brogues oxfords by #UrbanOutfitters , and #AlexanderMcqueen, #Cartier, and #Brera #accessories. To top it off I added a #gold #cross to my bun that I #diy-d from an earring that was missing it's pair ha! Of course I had on a poppin' lip. Because of my chocolate skin-tone, there are so many bold shades of lipstick (besides my signature orangey-red) that I can wear. This time I went with a bluish-grey!
