Put together a short lookbook using pieces you probably already own! Basics never go out of style.
It was so fun diving into the realm of video. With practice I’ll get so much better at editing, but you have to start somewhere. Enjoy, and subscribe!
Something you’re interested in watching from me? Anything in the realm of makeup and fashion, I’d love to know.

How is everyone? As always, I’m sorry that I’ve been away. I missed blogging so much! I’ve told you all recently that I have been working on creating better content this year, but it’s much easier said than done. I’ve been really busy and haven’t found time to shoot. I work a lot, and the only day I have off I’m doing self-care and watching anime. But anyways, I’ve been seeing snake print so much on my instagram feed! First of all I want to start by saying I’ve been wearing COLORS for a few weeks now, and it’s been extremely liberating (for those that do not know, I have always been a lover of all black pieces). So naturally my next step was to try some sort of print, and I ended up with this pair of flares. I won’t lie to you, my first impression of the pants was that the material was odd. I mean, for the most part they fit amazing and accentuate your thighs and butt. I’m wearing the smallest size available, and Misspap offers free US shipping which I LOVED. Next, my top. It is literally one of the best purchases I made in 2018. I also have it in black, and it has a very unique cut to it. A cool-but-essential wardrobe staple in my opinion.
I’d like to talk about the actual photos now. My best friend of over 10 years, Robert, took these with my iPhone. It was very impulsive, but somehow everything just came together so nicely. He’s a ride-or-die so I figured he’d be up for it (he has zero experience taking photos). When I looked through the library of pictures he took, I was SHOOK. It’s safe to say that he is my photographer now, and a very funny one at that.
Here’s a track I was listening to while typing this post:

I missed expressing myself so much. I get mental blocks sometimes but it’s funny how the outcomes of my own life give me the creativity I felt I was lacking. I’m a very emotional individual, but my own emotions helped me create this project alongside a dear friend of mine (@organic.honey_). It really blew my mind that she listened to me, understood the mood and concept I wanted, and truly put it together in front of my eyes. In order to understand this project, I recommend you listen to the song that inspired it in the first place. You cannot understand my emotions or train of thought, but this song conveys them perfectly. EVERGLADE is my interpretation of the repercussions of love. I know that to most people this seemed like a well put together outfit shoot, but “point-and-shoot” content has become progressively boring. Also big thanks to (@shhbbyisokay) for jumping in and taking additional shots.
Hoping to continue to create better content for my platforms! Happy Friday
Let me know what you’d want to watch if I started a Youtube channel. Still contemplating it, but it would allow me to expand DBD! Leave a comment if what you’re interested in is not on the poll already.

By far the worst haircut I’ve ever had. I’m looking like my mom’s favorite kindergarten portrait. I know we can ALL relate when I say that it is rare to find a hairstylist that can truly bring a reference photo to life. My best friend’s mom is one of them, and I will never go to any other hairstylist again, MARK MY WORDS. But anyways, on to the outfit. The Prince of Wales check print has been so popular lately, and I got too excited when I picked up some affordable pieces at my local Forever 21 (3 to be exact). They’re all literally the same print, but who really cares. I DON’T. This outfit was inspired by a Instagram photo of Bella Hadid, in which she’s wearing a white Orseund Iris corset over a white tank. There’s something sexy about layering a corset over a tee or tank, and I’m definitely here for it.
Thank you to everybody that has been cheering for TNDNCIES! I appreciate you, and I’m living a dream because of you.

Hello everyone! How have you been? I hope you ended 2017 with a positive mind, and lots of love. 2018 is here, and it seems like there are a lot of changes going on for every single one of us. The end of 2017 was a an exciting, but scary couple of months for me. I withdrew myself from the blog life for half the year, and this is why:
I am very happy (but mostly nervous), to announce that I’m launching an online shop! I’ve been working on it for those 6 months I was missing, and I’m finally ready to unveil it to you all. TNDNCIES (Tendencies) is a space I’ve created for all women to shop my personal fashion picks, which are a reflection of what DBD represents. Everything will be black and minimalistic, with the occasional color thrown in the mix. I want TNDNCIES to inspire you, but most of all I want it to make you feel confident. I love every single thing I’ve picked out for you, and I hope you will too. I will be updating our New Arrivals as new trends emerge. You will be able to shop the official site within the next week, and I’ll be announcing it on Instagram as soon as its up and running.
Enjoy this look. Tomboy serving looks, honey.

SUNGLASSES / TENDENCIES coming soon
As some of you know, I love Korean fashion, but I am also very inspired by everything Japanese. I’ve been listening to 80’s Japanese disco and it’s the best shit ever💕 This look was my twist on Japanese streetstyle, and it has become one of my favorite outfits of 2017. I thought the culottes combined with sneakers would make me appear shorter than I already am, but the tube top definitely helped elongate my body. And okay these sunglasses are SO COOL. They pulled the look together, and I’m crying over the Kurt Cobain inspired frame (and the red-orange tint). If you’ve read my previous post you’d know that red was one of the IT colors on the runway this season.
I had alot of fun editing these photos, btw. Will post again soon, じゃあね!
