ZODIAC SIGN: Very, VERY Pisces

ASPIRATIONS: My goal is to be an asset to my generation. More specifically, I want to offer healing, support, kinship, and inspiration via my music.

HOBBIES: I’m a lover of all things artsy, my hobbies all tie into one another. Writing is my passion, I do it often and it often spawns my other “creativities”. I’ll write down a thought and it’ll often times inspire a melody and become a song, or sometimes evoke an image in my head that I’ll use to create a visual piece.

STYLE INSPIRATION: Phyllis Hyman, Sylvester James, my mother. These were all style ICONS in my book. I look to them often for reminders of how doin’ it is done! I borrow often from Phyllis’s use of accessories that teeter the line of being breathtakingly regal…and absolutely obnoxious lol. A lot of my style choices in terms of hair and make-up are in tribute to my mom. Sylvester was an absolute trendsetter. He was a style pioneer and I borrow his fearlessness in terms of dressing like whatever the hell he chose to, lol. Although they’ve all transitioned, I still pull a lot from images of each of them in their prime. Huge sources of style inspiration.

FAVORITE ACCESSORY: My favorite accessory…accessories really, are anything by Venus Visuals. Their jewelry is absolutely unique and I love the brand’s use of bold/culturally significant prints and unique shapes. Check them out at venusvisualsonline.com. I rock their stuff OFTEN.

WHAT’S YOUR STREET INTELL: My thing is to be useful, impactful, and contribute as a part, to the whole of things. As I mentioned earlier it’s my goal to use my gifts to promote ideas that are beneficial to my generation. I want to inspire others to inspire others to inspire others and so on. I feel like art is a really pure and effective means of connecting people, right at the core. I want to use my art to connect people’s hearts and minds. It’s an excellent tool to have, and I intend to learn it well and use it effectively.

DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE: I’d say my style is… rugged regal. I love to shape my looks around the fact that I’m the queen of everything (that belongs to me, lol ), but I’m not at all afraid to do laymen’s work. I command respect. I give excellent care. I’m deliberate and fair, and I work HARD. I like to capture these elements of my persona in my style choices. In short, my style is ME! 🙂

Got an awesome personality and kick a$$ style? Well then you just might be the next Street Intell Style Feature.

Here at Street Intell we like to do different things and create fun little add ons to the site. We’ve been doing a series of random Instagram street style features and people have enjoyed it so much that we decided to take it a step further.

We not only want to see what people are wearing but we want to know what they’re doing and what inspires them. Therefore, we’ve decided to start featuring one awesome Street Styler here on the blog ever month.
