Summer Fashion meets Pre Fall

 

 

Gearing up for a new season of styling and more travel for various clients whom I style, I decided to unwind and take my coworker Crystal up on her offer to photograph me!  In this photo I am featuring the metallic look! Be prepared to see tons of sequence and more metallic!  The cowboy inspired boot will also make its presence known!  Here’s my interpretation of my summer fashion meeting my pre fall style!

 

I love my vintage hat travel case, I travel with it as much as I can! I hope to find new colors!

 

I guess my vacation in Jamaica contributed to extra leg muscle!  The 16 minute walk up the hill to the road where my mom is from was more of a hiking adventure than anything else!  I am thankful for the muscles and the memories!

 

I shopped in my closet for this look!  My metallic sequin shorts are from Forever 21, My St. Barthes T-shirt is from Saks Fifth Avenue, Isabel Marant Boots from Neiman Marcus and handmade scarf from Ethiopia!

Fashion International Group Boston

 

 

Hello,

here is a repost of my Interview earlier this year. The original post was shared over 70 times and then my website crashed. Let’s continue to share it with others aspiring to work in the fashion industry! Thank you to my international supporters who post my work and direct fashion and music lovers to my website!

We had a chance to chat with FGI Boston Member, Natalie Mason and here is what we learned…

What is your profession / role in the fashion industry?
I was born into a family of tailors and artists so we always worked in the industry. My dad is an upholstery king in Toronto, Canada! I worked for various leading luxury brands in the fashion and beauty world and was trained by the finest houses. My current role in the fashion industry is curating scent and clothing wardrobes for my clients. When I am not styling my clients I write about and promote my talented family and friends on my website.

What is your personal philosophy about the fashion industry?
Study your craft, be true to yourself, wear what you love and make your own rules! i.e This year Disco is trending but in my world Disco is forever.

What do you consider your biggest accomplishment professionally?
My biggest accomplishment was styling singer/song writer and music producer Vivian Sessoms for Grammys 2018. She is responsible for many hits that you have danced or sing to, you also saw her on tour with your favorite artists from Cher and Pink to name a few. http://luxshop4u.com/vivian-sessoms-grammys-2018/ . I’m also excited about when I was selected at the Boston Fashion Awards as Boston’s top Wardrobe Stylist 2017 I was happy to be in great company with other successful Boston Stylists! I dedicated my award to my sister Pauline in heaven.

What inspires you?
Music, 1970’s fashion, and My loving family inspires me each and everyday! They are the most creative and fashionable people that I know! I am gearing up for my late father-in-law Soul Music Icon Danny Woods proclamation ceremony on March, 27th! After his death I wanted to put a smile on my grieving families faces, particularly my husband so I reached out to the music community, fans and mayors to help with this project and many others! So not only do we have one but we have 4 Proclamations in Atlanta, North Myrtle Beach and Charlotte North Carolina. PBS will be there to document this historic day! This week we contacted several media and music outlets to prepare for the week ahead! https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1921554397879360&id=1201501463217994

We are so happy to have you be a part of FGI Boston!

RSXGLD

 

 

 

 

Open letter to  BenjiRich Here is why Creatives like us need to own this album!

Saturday, November 11th,  after a long few weeks of meetings and ups and downs, my husband who was born and raised in the “D” switched our Sirius radio from talk radio to music per my request!   I hated much of what I heard so he continued to skim until we landed on Shade 45. That moment while I was venting about a situation something magical happened!  A song called True came on and I freaked out because I saw the name DJ ASSAULT (Huge fan of his music) then I read the other names Royce Da 5’9” (Detroit rap legend), RSXGLD, and JMSN.  Hubby and I immediately stopped talking and focused more on the Detroit catch phrases in the song.  Royce Da 5’9”  comes on and we both were geeked (Excited) because we do not hear many Detroit artist on the airwaves, or in the clubs aside from  Big Sean and Dej Loaf we immediately  wondered who was RSXGLD, when did this song come out and why are we just hearing their song TRUE!

 

 

True Featuring Royce Da 5’9″, JMSN, DJ Assault

 

 

 

Just as the song was coming to an end my husband said, “Nat,”  I wish they would have added some Jit to this song, as soon as my husband said, “Jit” the rhythm switched to 808’s and Detroit techno/Jit, we both were shouting as if our favorite athlete made a score!  The moment that rhythm changed it reminded me of when I lived in Toronto and had a girls weekend July 1st Canada Day and July 4th Independence Day with Ernestine to visit Nicole (Carlos Rogers cousin In-Law). That was the weekend Destiny’s Child had a concert and the Club was packed to see Beyoncé, Kelly, Latavia Roberson and Letoya Luckett.

It also brought me back to the days when I worked in Fairlane Mall at Coach with Tanya, Nakisha, Adriana, Deon, Kimica and Cyntara.  I enjoyed my days  living in Detroit and Farmington Hills driving Downtown Detroit on the Jefferson Freeway in the tunnel during 4th of July Weekend with my best friend Nicole.   After hours on the East Side where you can only get in with secret knocks on the door!  8 mile,  7 mile and SouthField Freeway,  Lodge 10 Freeway, Northland Mall, Wing Dings at Crystals, Fish Fry’s with our family, 2 for $60.00 Moët and Chandon, Better Made hot chips, and getting my hair done by Otha White.  While the visuals rapidly went through my mind of my time living in Detroit I quickly searched for the song on iTunes and tweeted about it before I started my shift at work!  Thank you Ro Spit and 14KT for painting beautiful memories with your words and for sharing your art with the world!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here I am today Sunday, November 12th

Listening to the entire album for the first time this morning and I realize why I am so drawn to it!  This album is the soundtrack to my current mood! It’s  a reminder to creatives like us to focus on what’s  important, do not get distracted by negativity and that steadfastness is key!  Spectators watch what you are doing, get inspired by it and create it for themselves without acknowledgment.   The spectators  don’t realize that when you finally reach your peak it’s because of all of the sweat, tears and endurance that it took. BenjiRich  the formula that we create remains silent, many won’t celebrate you when you get there and get uptight while  they watch you accomplish your dreams.  Check these songs out and let me know what you think!

My favorite songs were selected based on how it related to me and what I am going through on my path to greatness and dodging B.S

 

RSXGLD album are:

True 

“I laced them boot straps and got my ass up! I ain’t never going back”
Days and Nights of hard work and sacrifice!

“You reminisce I remember”
“N a product of Reganomics slaving for dollars”
The mentality that was forced on many and they were lost and turnt out!  In my current situation when people try to keep up with the Jones’s and do wicked things to take money away from some of us honest hard workers to pay the bills of what they tried to keep up with!

Quotes that sound like Benji Rich and my conversation

“Like,  (blank) think,  (Blank) think we doing ish just to be doing it, like we ain’t got a method to it you feel?”  I will explain this to you via phone but I think that you already know how we get down like Voltron Phase 2 almost complete!

“For real this ain’t got nothing to do with us!  This coming from a higher place, that means there’s more at stake, so it’s more to hate! This ‘ish more than great!”  God bless us

I Believe

Belief in our visions and crushing our goals!

What’s Happenin’  Brutha
Anyone who lost a loved one will relate to this!  I remember calling insurance companies, the government and lawyers December 2007 when the tragedy in our family happened.

Thought Bubble

“We live next to the demons and heathens”

“The thoughts in my mind flying like a car with a drift”

Life is good!  I just finished my interview with Eban Brown from The Stylistics who Nas collaborated with on “You Can’t Stop Us Now.”  The same Eban Brown who was in the Legendary R&B group The Delfonics whose song “Walk Right Up To The Sun,” was sampled by Nas and Lauryn Hill for “If I Ruled The World!”  My first stop after a long day of work is the tour merchandise area to buy an Illmatic hat!
