JONESY X THE BLVD PARADIGM

Photographer: Charlene Kim
In another in the mean time, in between time, I am so geeked to share the "In Bed With" feature I had the pleasure of doing with JONESY, a comfort based underwear brand based out of New York. 

The underwear feels like soft greatness, like passing out in warm laundry.

Special thanks to Rachel Jones, creator of JONESY, for choosing me to be a part of this series.
Check out the feature here.

No Speech

Vintage: Trench // Topshop: shark tank // BDG: drop-crotch pants // Nike: composition dunks // Lulu's: bracelet
When it's good I'm questioning
You, then I start to take it in
Is my head in the way?
Cause my heart can't explain
Where we going now?
Build it up,we tear it down
Cared before but baby 
Now I don't give a f*ck
- Kelela
Questioning before speaking,
Speechless speeches on almost weekends

Eat my words.

Spare Change

Vintage: coat/ t-shirt// Urban Outfitters: poncho // Levi's: shorts // Zara: boots// H&M: choker // Lulu's Richmond: necklace








Good enough to make the ocean look like it's a pond
 Good enough to turn the valleys into mountaintops 
And we live like legends now know that will never die 
We got love, we got love
-Tove Lo

Cycling quarters while waiting on loads.

Oh, metaphors.

Cut Off

Farrow: shirt dress// Zara: boots// Forever 21: sunglasses// Rachel by Rachel Roy: rings// H&M: pendant ring
Oh
You want in again, but I can't
You were slow catching up to it
Now I'm mad
You had the floor, but said too much you did enough
....When I say I'm done that means that's all
you're cut off
-Muhsinah

The urban exchange of dodgeball and a beverage.

Stanley


Zara: sweatshirt// Ark & Co.: skirt// J.Press: button-up// Dr.Martens: boots// Need Supply Co.: bracelets
And I've been cleaning this damn house 
All day and All night
But you don't pay me no attention Stanley
I'm needing your attention baby
Just show me some appreciation
Or maybe take a bitch to dinner
-Jazmine Sullivan


In the full appreciation of J. Sullivan and the unappreciative Stanley, I present Clorox and Cake.
Yes, Clorox and cake.
Please don't mix that.

Ode to Space (Disheveled)



Zara: turtleneck // Carhartt: oversized overalls // Bonne Maison: socks // Rachel by Rachel Roy: rings


Boxes and paradigms, I move around it
Spaces inside your mind
I'm safe and sound where
I can breath, I feel, I can breath
Don't leave me yet
-SZA

Flawlessness is overrated.
The beauty in the disheveled is unapologetically stretched out with lipstick smeared.
Now, wake up next to that.

We were born to go against the grain
No matter what the people say
We're born to do whatever we like
And that's life.
-Victoria Monet

I got a fish named Fred. 
The illest, goldfish in wonderland.
