So I took a day out of my Mini Mission to let my little brothers be tourists in NY for the first time in a while. Every time they came to NY they were only driven by the major places by my family. I called it drive by sightseeing, and I hated it! How can you really experience someplace behind a glass?! In my opinion we have TV for that, but when you can actually just get out and take the whole city in you should. So that’s precisely what we did.

These are just a few shots that I took with my phone, since I am still without a computer till I get home on Tuesday. Sorry if the quality may not be the best.

Hope you enjoy,

Stay traveling!

New York Mini Mission 11/08/2011

So by the time you read this I will already be on a plane heading to NY. I have been waiting to go back for almost a year now. I miss the city and my family so much!

While I am there I have decided to give myself a little mission. I have been searching for a new go everywhere bag. I like to call it The Best Friend Bag. I think just about every lady has one. You know that go to bag that you always grab, the bag that you just pick up in a haste without even looking, the bag that may be falling apart but you refuse to let it go. Yeah, well my dear friend has had a hell of a run, but it’s time is slowly coming to an end.

studs galore: a closer look at @teenvogue fashion editor @mksteinmiller’s amazing @MalandrinoBuzz bag! I also love all her little bracelets…

While on Tumblr the other day I saw this magnificent Malandrino Bag posted by Eva Chen and could not help but to drool. You see this is the type of bag that I have been hunting for. I love the edge that it has and the color makes it so versatile. It reminds me of a way more popular version of my BFB.

Anyhow, since I will be going back to my old stomping grounds I thought that this would be a perfect opportunity to get a new Best Friend Bag. Since NY is home of the deals, steals, and knock offs this should be easy right?? Well, we’ll just have to see. I’m only there for 5 days and have a lot of ground to cover. I’ll keep you posted!

Stay searching,

Kay

 

Enviroment of Fashion Influences 11/07/2011

While putting together the lasts bits of my inspiration collage I could not help but think about London. All of the amazing street style that I saw. And I realized how much the actual environment itself has a lot to do with the way we dress and our style. My style is extremely eclectic because I live in Florida, but spend at least 3 Months ever year in New York, born in Jamaica, and am in love with the European sense of style. I think that pretty much sum up my style influences as for as my enviroment go. Being an Island Baby has given me my love for colors and flow outfits. New York and London has blessed me with a fearless attitude when it comes to wearing thins you normally don’t see everyone else in.

 

 

I took a few lovely snap shots of London Outdoor Markets that I visited on a daily basis while I was there. I went to a few of the big name stores and high street, but I wanted to find things that I could not get back home. So wear else to look than London’s Famous Markets.  And I must say that selection of things that you can get there are amazing and like no other. I can see why London definitely says the bar as far as outdoor markets go.

In famous Portobello Market and its lovely array fo style

Just trying to show you and overview of how packed it is on a Saturday

believe it or not, but this does not even show just half of how long the street is and all of its eclectic shops ans stalls. I truly can not wait to go back next summer for Festivals and more shopping. 🙂

 

I can see why Londoners are so crazy about vintage wear, when such great quality timeless pieces are so easily accessible, why wouldn’t you want to.

 

 More views of inside the Canopy area at Portobello Market in London

 

Another side of Portobello Market. I think by now it is pretty clear to see that I had a serious love affair with this place while in London.

 

This was while I was at Brick Lane Market. I would consider this one the more Indie/Rocker ones of the all the Markets in London. And if you remember from the last post, this was also the one that had some of the most diverse food. Yumm!

 

Brick Lane had this very interesting and strange place call the Tea Room. I was not quite sure what to expect when I got in there, but it was awesome. Imagine a huge and ecltic antique shop.

 

The lovely fashionable masses at Brick Lane listening to some live music, while getting their make up done, and hair cut all in this very convenient area. By the look of this pick you can kinda see what I mean with how your environment influences what you wear. Almost every one is in the same color scheme, with some sort of leather on, scarf, and some sort of cross body bag.

 

Inside Brick Lane Market.

 

While at Brick Lane I met an artistic girl who designed all of these Awesome shoes by hand. This was just one of the amazing handmade things that you can find only at  the Markets that you just can’t get anywhere else. I am a huge supporters of artist and people following their own paths so I had to get a pair.

 

These are my new babies that I had to have!

 

This is like the unofficial entrance to Brick Lane. Once again, the people are wearing different clothes, but all have the same vibe.

 

Leather, grey, and denim every where I turn on the cobbled streets of  Covent Garden.

 

I love this photo because you have your Chelsea girl fashion on one hand, and on the other hand your kind of Laid Back Rocker like I saw all up and down in Liverpool.

 

My lovely European friends and I out and about on the streets of London.

 

Pubbing like a true Londoner with my Ladies. 😉

Well I just thought I would give you a taste of the London Street Style and Market scene to show you just how much your surroundings can affect the way you dress. Next time you’re getting ready in the mirror, ask yourself “would be wearing this if I were in a different city?”

Stay Influenced,

Kayz

 

Live from London! 28/05/2011

Hey again!

Since the last time we spoke I think I have covered just about every major area and even a few lesser known spots of London, and may I just say that it has been an absolute ball! I have barely been home, but to sleep of course because I’m tryna make the most of London before I must depart.

London is way more than what I was expecting in a great way of course. Everything from the street fashion to amazing  variety of cultures and everything that comes along with being a melting pot of city.

Since I know just about everyone knows the major monuments of London, I thought I would only upload a few of those pics. Then my next post will be on the London culture and street fashion that I am adoring.

 

 

This for those who may not know is the infamous London Bridge. I love how I went from just seeing it my snow globe for years to finally being able to capture the real thing.

 

 

 

 

This is the London Bridge Shopping Centre. I love the high arches and the beautiful architectural designs. And is it just me or do you notice the style of the people in the photos. I wish more men back home dressed like that.

 

 

 

Now you know I had to go to the Shakespeare Globe Theater! How can I aspire to be writer without going?!

 

 

 

Sorry about my mates being caught in the pic. There was almost nowhere to stand. Because like us, all of the other tourist were all tryna get a shot. Hahaha

 

 

 

The Tate Modern. I love going to museums and this was a definite must see. By the way, that street performer was amazing!

 

 

 

I actually really wanted to take this shot towards St. Paul’s Cathedral as well because this is in almost every movie I watch that takes place in London.

 

 

 

On my way to get a ride on the London Eye. 🙂

 

 

 

The amazing and moving Big Ben and the House of Parliament

 

 

 

The Buckingham Palace. Sorry, no sight of Kate or William or even the Queen anywhere. hehehe

 

 

 

The National Gallery! Which I was unfortunately not allowed to take photos of inside. :-/

 

 

 

The British Museum. Now I was able to take photos of the inside. I’m not exactly sure if you want to see it, so if anyone does, just leave a comment and I will upload them in the next post.

As for the next post. I will be uploading some of the London original street fashion as well as some of the amazing food that I have gotten a chance to eat and experience.

Till then,

Kayz

So I thought I would just post a few pics that I have taken on my phone since I have been in London. Unfortunately, I have yet to find an adapter that works for my laptop or my phone. This post was made possible by my awesome flatmate Ahmet for letting me use his iPhone charger. Still searching for an adapter so I can bring you a better post. But till then,

Dos Besos!

As you know I am currently in London and just like forgetful me, I have forgotten my adapter. There was supposed to be one waiting for me at my Aunts flat, but one of the guests seems to have misplaced it. Anyhow, I am currently at a public library just checking in to give you an update. As soon as I get an adapter, I will post pics of my daily missions thus far.
Hopefully I will be seeing you again soon,

Dos Besos!

London Calling 07/05/2011

That’s right! I bought a ticket to London to stay with some of my lovely family. Traveling to Europe especially London has been a dream of mine. So it was a must on my Missions List. I told myself no matter what I had to do, or how much more hours I had to work, and even if I didn’t have a dime to spend while there that I was going to London before heading back to classes. Now my dream will take effect 10th of May!
And once again, you are more than welcome for this trip!

Dos Besos!
