Boom Box Bombshell. - dmrdepictions.comI wanted to do a fun little shoot that really embodies who I am and what my blog is about and who better to bring out my vision than my talented friend and pro-tographer Daniel from DMR Depictions. My friend Kenley Collins is an amazing fashion designer who continues to break the mold of traditional rockabilly style and I recently got my hands on one of her pieces which was a romper with a cassette tape print. It was love at first sight and a really great piece that speaks to me on so many levels because it’s like a combination of my two favorite eras which is why I had to wear it for this shoot. It would be very limiting of me to categorize myself as JUST “rockabilly” or “pinup” when there are so many over layers to who I am. My personality and style is so versatile I like to channel different parts of myself every day. Some days I am goth, some days I am urban, some days I am pinup but If I had to really narrow down my style It would be a marriage of the classic style of the 50s and the nitty-gritty rawness of 1980s culture and fashion. I love the classic cars, architecture, fashion, glamour, and elegance of the 1950s but I also love the graffiti, music, dancing, fashion, and culture that was very much a part of my life in the 1980s growing up in New York City. I like that I can mix them up to create a style all my own, one that embodies who I really am. I never pay attention to all of those stupid rules in fashion magazines that dictate what’s in or out of fashion. Fashion is what we see models sport on runways but STYLE is personal; it’s what we want to wear that makes us feel great despite the season, critics, magazines, and trends. I’ve been blogging for 10+ years and wearing what I want since I was a kid. My mother taught me to embrace who I am at a very young age and encouraged me to stay creative and she is very much a great part of who I am today and why I continue to dance to the beat of my own boom box ;). Who needs rules when it comes to self-expression anyway? My message to all of you is to embrace your creativity and dress however you like. You don’t have to stick to one particular style. Have fun, mix it up, and create a style all your own because nothing is more liberating than being yourself. I hope these photos inspire you to dance to beat of YOUR own boom box. Now lets dance! - - -
