Why Fenty x Puma Speaks To My Soul

It comes as a great honor to showcase one of my favorite new icons to the fashion world, Rihanna’s Fenty collaboration with Puma. One of the things I admire most about Rihanna is her “give no fucks” attitude about everything, from her music to her view on fashion. She’s a down ass bitch who’s unafraid of speculation and does things from the heart. I roll to a similar vibe.

Urban gothic streetwear inspires me to be creative in an understated way: finding the beauty in the details of things. The vast majority of my wardrobe is monochrome and unpatterned, always for a reason: there’s always room for details. I live for statement jewelry and bold makeup statements, and for this week’s post, in head to toe Fenty. From the designs of the pieces to the carefully selected features of the beauty products, it’s all understated, leaving room for you to make it your own.

The details I chose for this outfit included this KILLER feather collar found at a local San Francisco boutique on Valencia, Thread Lounge. If you’ve never stepped foot in here, holy OMG! There’s everything from cute accessories for your home like rugs, statement pillows, and lots of boho-chic clothing. It paired SO well with my Fenty dress, and I can’t wait to throw it into the mix for my upcoming evening events for the holidays. Since the dress is a little baggy, I opted to wear my favorite swimsuit of all time, the Agent Provocateur Mazzy one piece. It gave it a nice pop of neon color to an otherwise monochrome look, tying in my statement shoes perfectly!

The soft details of the lace adorned ends were my favorite detail of all. The lace is made of technical material, which makes it an absolute dream to wear. Not only was I comfortable as hell during New York Fashion Week this year, I felt more than ever, myself. I let my details run wild, and it was liberating.

If you try nothing at all from her line, look no further than last season’s kimono dress. It’s simple enough for daily wear, but totally worthy of a round out at Fashion Week, from the shows to cocktail hour. The upcoming season is finally available to shop, check the whole collection here!

    You’ve got such a unique vibe to your style, and I definitely think Rihanna (and everyone else) can dig it. So cool that you find such inspiration from her and her line! Have you tried her foundation yet? (I noticed that you’re wearing her highlighter)

  7. October 3, 2017 / 5:17 pm

    I really want to try her new makeup line! Such a fun outfit!
