Green Gal Riri

The best part of styling is the experimentation — the oscillating between ideas & inspiration for a look that is not only wearable but creatively stimulating. When I saw these killer green embroidered satin boots at Zara, they gave me total Rihanna-in-Balenciaga vibes from her “Wild Thoughts” music video. I love when something dope from […]

Designer[Insider]: HoliChic by Megha

Devī (Sanskrit: देवी) is the Sanskrit word for “goddess” We hear a lot about supporting and empowering women, but celebrating others begins with celebrating yourself. I learned this from my grandmother who taught me the importance of self love. My Naani is the quintessential matriarch who does not sit for a second and is constantly […]

A Mindful Closet

We are fortunate to possess many material things, so many that we run out of space to keep it all and then we forget about it. It happens, but to mitigate a lot of the wastefulness and hoarding, it's important to approach our materialism with mindfulness. If you are like me and go into a […]

Above The Influence

One of the greatest tools you possess as a creative is the ability to pull inspiration from the most unlikely of sources — from cultures you identify with, from family histories however complex, or from people that exist in this space we call life together. The amalgamation of all these influences is what makes you […]

FASHION & DISSONANCE

     It is hard to ignore the cognitive dissonance I feel when I realize how much I spend on brands that don’t represent my values. It’s no secret most brands promote exclusivity, dressing wealthy thin white bodies instead of branding towards people of color, people of various sizes, or people from different socioeconomic classes. […]

STYLEPROTEST

     I believe style is a form of protest and speaks to issues that go beyond vanity and decorum. The right to represent yourself the way you choose is as inalienable as any other. Fashion no doubt can be superfluous and material, but the immateriality of style can lend itself to resistance, revolution, and […]

ATHLEISURE

As someone who values their comfort, I’m down with athleisure as the street style aesthetic of the moment, especially as brands today continue to blur the lines of activewear and daywear.
