1. Jibril - Tall Pines- Ever since I got into fashion I’ve always been concerned about the beach. How to make a fashion statement on the beach. Well not a legit Fashion week “fashion statement”, but something a bit outstanding from the regular board shorts and tank. So obviously this look is really simple but it’s actually really what I was looking forward to when putting it together. The really grunge shorts, and the Mexican knot hoodie are really two pieces that I’d throw on right out of the water to keep warm but hey blend so well I think to give a really cool pale look. Then I added two simple darker accessories to boost the overall look fashion wise. And who goes to the beach without a cool pair of Havainas flip-flops.

  2. Jalan-Rocket Power- This look was actually not inspired by Rockt Power at all it’s just that as the look came together, going up on the lifeguard cabin and seeing the santa monica pier with the rides just made me feel like auto from the cartoon show. I love hawaiian shirts but i’ve gotten very picky with them over time, to me theres two types: 

    1. The type that a tourist would pick up on his trip to hawaii which isn’t rather fashion based but used as a souvenir &… 

    2. The Hawaiian print shirt that the local grandparents have put together in a collection and when put in the right hands can be used to make an awesome fashion statement! 

    So for the rest of the look i added a few accessories but my favorite one is this random piece of thread that i picked up from a swap meet, i wasn’t sure what to do with it at first i was contemplating between a belt or a head wrap but then it found it’s self on my neck so that was its home for this look. By the way if you’ve read to this point of the post i would like to thank you seeing that i don’t know who actually reads these and if you’re are one of them that means a lot. Have a great day! *LOL*

  3. Jalan-Bad time Valentine- “Look at this shirt i found, it’s fringed” Jalan said!
    As his Jibril looked at him with a questioned face. That’s exactly what happened when i found this T-shirt. At first Jibril didn’t get what I liked with this shirt but then I put this look together and he finally understood! I added my brown jacket and favorite pork pie hat. I looked very biker-ish up top so I decided to cool my “bad-ass” down with the corduroy skinny pants and a flat finish with the grey and black laced moccasins. Made it look like the bad guy with some good in him. Just how the ladies like it ;). As for the name of this look, it basically started when I found this rose in someone’s garden and I ripped it off their bush and decided to have it be part of the look and valentines day was coming up and I thought why not release this on Valentines Day since I’m “valentineless” which would obviously end up as a bad time valentine, but you know we don’t even need to try. IT’S ALWAYS A GOOD TIME! Haha

     

  4. Jibril - The wind - I listen to the wind, to the wind of my soul. Cat Stevens’s music is so heart felt. It’s amazing. But enough with that, let’s talk about this combination of bohemian wear. So here i wore an oversized Navajo coat with wing tip penny loafers, and a cowboy. I liked the mix of the three. It gives this kind of gambler/native look. I was going to wear this other Navajo jacket at first that I did really like but it looked a bit too bulky. Which is weird because I usually love the bulky on top with slim pants at the bottom. But this coat was a friend of mines that we were shooting with that day and it turned out to balance out the overall outfit pretty well to my opinion. But now back to Cat Stevens. To understand my mood towards this out fit and the picture listen to The wind by Cat Stevens. Where I’ll end up where i’ll go only god really knows.
