EMPIRE

"There's an inherent energy in New York City that it's famous for. It makes you want to get up and do a million things all day and stay up all night."

top & skirt: ADRA WORLD, boots: MARC & STUART, outerwear: MONKI


Hiiiii. A very hectic week indeed, I even forgot when was the last time I had a good nap. Got 2 upcoming shoots this weekend and for a moment, I felt like I'm in NYC. Living the hustle sleepless life 24/7.

Somehow relatable to the outfit I'm wearing in this post. Designed by my friend Adra, her namesake brand ADRA WORLD's second collection, My Kind of New York, is basically a  reflection of the city. Believe it or not, all the patterns were taken by herself during her summer course at Parsons. I KNOW RIGHT, how cool is that tho? 

I have been a keen admirer of all her designs pretty much since we first met. I was a dresser during her fashion show and the way she combines patterns and textures into a couture dress is mind blowing. Definitely one designer to look out for ;)

Now more about the outfit... I gotta confess something, I'm a sucker for crop top no matter how huge my beer belly is HAHA. Plus, it's basically a coordinate so more win for me, right? And lemme get something straight. I pretty much wear sneakers like 70% of my lifespan, but a super fleek pair of leather boots = my kryptonite

To see more from ADRA WORLD, simply check out their Instagram, or official stockist Awondaland

  55. Congrats to your friend on her opening her brand! I miss New York so so much after graduating from Parsons and it's really cool to see someone else's inspiration. Don't worry you do NOT have a beer belly so don't know what you're talking about :) You look great in these outfits and keep the shoots coming!
