Sky Conner x Hassani Hamilton

Sky Conner x Alexandra (@Androgynous_douby)
Outfit: Hassani Hamilton Photographer: @aagdolla (Instagram) 

I can't express how happy I was to represent Hassani Hamilton Sick P*ssy Collection. This brand is more than just a brand but more so a lifestyle. You feel something happen when you put on these garment, well at least I do. It's almost like a super hero putting on their cape. My connection comes from what the brand stands for. Hassani created "Sick Pussy", from the notion of women not being able to be in their natural state. His term "freeing women" is powerful! As  women we are always looked upon, judged, and told who and what we should be. We never get to explore and just BE, freely. I have never per say called myself a feminist but I but I am pro women is the sense of us being free.  Free to make decisions, free to dress how we want, free to aspire to being more than a housewife, free to seek opportunities that have been deemed a "manly" job.  We all have to vow to free each other. Women need to free themselves and men need to free them from the social standard. So by all mean you hearing it from me, "YOU ARE FREE TO GO AND JUST BE!" 

To the clothes all the items can be purchased at but hurry I know that a lot of pieces are almost sold out or won't be there long. ;)

Style Tip: Shoes are important if you didn't know. You have the freedom of establishing how dressed up or down you want the the pieces you are wearing to be. Bomber and a pair heels is a killer combination or a vest and tennis shoes.

Sky Conner x BraveHeart Collection

Dress: BraveHeartCollection Shoes: Zara Bag: Chanel (Portero)

What's sexier than a tube dress? It hugs you in all the right places and is easy to maneuver in as well. It's no secret that my favorite color is blue. Naturally when I seen this dress on Braveheartcollection (click here) I had to buy it. For a minute I have been wanting a tube dress but it seems like places never had my size or a color that interest me! My measurements are 32 bust, 24 waist, and 34 inch hips so most of the time when I look at the size guide I'm always in between two sizes and its annoying. Luckily the small I'm wearing fits me perfectly. I know other ladies have similar troubles so I am telling you I think this dress was made for us. 

When it comes to how the dress feels on my skin I want to say in general I am always impressed with braveheartcollection clothes. The clothes are always soft and come already smelling refreshing, fresh out the box. Shipping was fast and the cost was affordable. I know sometimes I wear things that are not as accessible or deemed "expensive" but this particular piece is very much so affordable and chic. Please don't waste any time go buy the dress already and go look fabulous. For more ideas on how to wear it read the style tip below.

Side Note: This is a dress that show all your curves for better or for worse. So if you have some areas you are not wanting to showcase take the necessary steps to make sure the best you is showcased. For underwear either a THONG or COMMANDO or NO LINES. I always vote thong or commando but that's my personal preference. 

Style Tip: This dress is so versatile. As fall and winter approach find a cute crop sweater to wear over it or perhaps a suede or leather leather jacket. You could if your daring put on a oversized off shoulder top over the dress and use a belt to snatch the waist! Just a thought!

When it comes to me trying something new I think I am one of the first to get excited and take it on in comparison to my friends. I am eager to see myself look, feel, and even speak differently. I think fashion is more than just clothes, it's taking on a different persona based on your mood, weather, time, event, etc. When I envision myself I see a lot of different things and unfortunately I can't wear it all at one time like I would like to or can I? I believe that there is many facets to all of us and the biggest mistake to make is to try and pin point one out of others. Just BE! Just Live! Just Smile! And whatever outfit you decide to wear during those moments is just another version of you and thats okay! We don't have to stick to one style. You are an adapter by nature so never be afraid to grow and transform. 

Now about the outfit! I had this obsession to do a shoot with denim but I knew I didn't want to experience denim the same way like I have in the past. Mitch Moondae was so gracious to make a custom piece for me. He took simple items and transformed them into pieces of visual art. When you envision something you want to wear if the store doesn't have it all in one create it, or find someone to create it. We get bored with our look because we never venture out to change it. Be curious about certain items and look and see if you can wear it differently. 

Style Tip: I always try to preach this but, try to experience clothes differently if you have a button down try making it a skirt one day or cut off the top portion, sew an elastic band to the top and make it an off the shoulder button down top. Just a thought!

I wanted to be a simple, casual, chic. I wanted to appeal to the everyday who doesn't want to over think what to wear. I wanted to showcase that less can be more and still read to be tasteful. I chose to do shorts and jeans because I wanted to show versatility. A lot of times we have one set image of how a certain outfit combination should look, for instance when thinking about wearing a crop top and jeans most people think to put high waisted jeans with it. Sometimes I challenge myself not to get sucked into the fashion do's and don't because it stops you from being able to create, try, or explore anything new. You keep developing so your style should change and expand with you as well.

The shorts and crop top combo is for my ladies who want to chic, sexy and don't mind showing skin. They are comfortable looking like a super model even if they are just running to chipotle or the grocery store. My jeans and halter crop combo is for my ladies that want more of a sexy tomboy look. My crop top and denim boyfriend jeans also allows for a sneaker if you can find the right one.

Tip: There's no set way to wear anything. Wear what makes you comfortable and what looks good to you. You can always tailor something new but if you never try you may never know how amazing something can look or feel to you. Sidenote: Even if you try something you wouldn't normally try and you hate it, at least you know that doesn't work for you. The strength in style lies in trying new things!

Tank: TopShop Judo Boutique Pants: TopShop Shoes: Forever 21

I've been going through a world wind of a journey. Been trying to balance my life with my one job, one internship, moving, and running my blog. But besides that I am glad I was able to shoot with my lovely photographer Ivan. I wanted to wear something a little different and I must say I am pleased with how I put it together. 

I have always wanted to own a pair of pants that were high waisted and wide legged but I have shied away from buying them because of my height. I hate being forced to wear heels in order to wear certain pants.  However, it's been a while since I have worn heels so I figured why not. 

I decided to add a pop of color with my maroon trash bag waist pants to give a bit of contrast. I loved laying silk upon these pants. Believe it or not this outfit is very comfortable and feels good upon the skin. I chose to wear a simple heel because I knew you wouldn't really see the shoe based on the pants length but also because I wanted the focus to be on the pants and the color selection. 

Tip: When wearing a wide legged pants be conscious of shoe selection. You don't want your shoes to clash with the pants. When trying something new understand that it's just like finding the perfect red lipstick; it's all about the right shade. When mixing colors make sure that it is a contrast and that the color you choose lays well with your skin tone. Never wash yourself out with colors that don't make you pop.

That Lady!: Sky Conner

I have been inclined to experience life differently since I have moved to New York. I have always been the type of person who wanted to know everything. I am forever curious how everything works and what makes them tick. I have been blogging since 2011 and for years I spent so much time in front of the camera that I forgot the beauty of one. Ivan my photographer is an excellent teacher and he allowed me to be his student. I have learned so much in such a short time span and believe it or not by me knowing how different cameras work I'm able to get better shots when I'm on the other side. 

I believe its important to be well rounded in anything you are pursuing seriously.  For example: If you are trying to be a singer its important that you know or at least understand the producing aspect and the function of the studio equipment. Knowledge about your field will only help develop you. Now, I'm not saying you will be a jack of all trades but I am saying that by you having some knowledge or understanding of other surrounding components in your field you will produce better work. It's all a process and everything intertwines with each other. Don't be the person thats only caught up on one aspect you can't grow with that type of mindset.

My first picture deals with the idea of me taking on the persona of Olive Oyl but actually having style. The shirt is a mens shirt so I wanted to turn into my own. I like showing that being feminine doesn't come from the label but rather so the lady and how she wears it.

My inspiration for the last two photos was me thinking about how amazing it would be for a girl to shoot with bare essentials, hence the milk carton box I'm sitting on. I wanted to provoke the idea of this beautiful, sexy, yet tasteful lady is able to shoot on a average day and look fabulous doing it. She is that girl that isn't afraid to get her hands dirty but somehow she always manages to stay perfectly polished. I wanted it to be natural and spontaneous.
