Late Bloomer

tees coming this spring... 

The next project is one I'm very excited about. The concept of ThingsWentAwRy is really making the best of situations when they don't go how you planned. Life happens, and how you adapt and react dictates your position. I, personally, was always a late bloomer. I feel like it took me a little while longer to understand things and to find myself. While I had that extra time, I was exposed to a lot beautiful things and grew to be appreciative of the lessons and influences that molded me. Now, at my peak and in bloom, I know others can relate to that same story of delayed gratification and not feeling comfortable or confident with oneself. So this is for the late bloomers, the ones who took a little longer to get it, and the ones didn't get right the first or second time. This one is for the dreamers that think it's too late to start living out those dreams. It's never too late. It's your time now, and they have no choice but to smell the roses...

happy valentines day

Scott Disick inspired...

IMG_3648.JPG

I don't subscribe to the Kardashian brand, but Scott Disick may be my style hero. He encompasses a clean and edgy look, but he also does streewear in a way that's not too street. His signature look (that I've seen lately) has been flannel with a tee underneath, faded jeans and Chelsea boots.  

I like it, clearly. Versatile and rugged, and he's a bit of a jerk, kinda like me. Salute.

2 years later...

Thanks to everyone that supports and reads and shares. I started this blog on November 2, 2014 really to just do more. I was just floating and living but I wanted to push myself to create and present things. It's not perfect by any means but it's something I'm proud of and that I've created. I will have t-shirts coming soon hopefully at the top of the year or by my birthday in January. I'm excited to keep pressing, snapping pictures, living, and growing. I appreciate everyone once again for coming along this journey with me and I hope I've encouraged, enlightened, and helped everyone who reads explore just a little more. 

the dork and his blog are doing ok and...

GOD is DOPE x Sneaker Ball

P's Orchard x Sneaker Ball x God is Dope 

 

The event was so incredible. I was honored to be apart of the conversations in that room with so many gifted and talented people. In ramping up for the Sneaker Ball in December, one of my best friends and I were invited to come and take let in #thejuice headshot party. To my pleasant surprise we were interviewed about our invdidual style and it's going to be highlighted for the event in December. So much thanks and respect and love to TO and everyone at the Sneaker Ball and P's Orchard(organic all natural juice which is phenomenal, look for it in stores soon). Once more shots and the interview become available, I will share.

 

more to come, much more...

the pablo pop-up...the highs and lows

Atlanta got a pop up...never happens

Atlanta got a pop up...never happens

With the Ascension of band tees, tour merch has been able to ride the wave to become some the most coveted apparel around. The Pablo pop ups have been as much a driving force of that wave than anything, maybe THE driving force. From his show in NYC to preview TLOP, the merchandise that has become synonymous with the project has been highly sought after and resold at quite the premium. I finally got a chance to check out the merch for myself since I haven't the chance to catch any trips...so far.

what's hype without a line... 

Lenox Mall was the sight of a slightly underwhelming setup. I had a sneak peak of the London and NYC shops from hypebeast and few other outlets and they were literally clean and minimalistic bright shops. After my hour and change wait(short compared to most I've talked to), I stepped into a dimly lit shop with tees, jackets and hoodies on display. I love the design of the Pablo merch. Some thoughts went into it and it was executed correctly. Aesthetically pleasing as it was, the prices for a gildan tee, caught me off guard. I can't say too much because I did stand in line, but was a little surprised to pay that much for the quality. The experience was cool. The staff was pretty cool, very dope and accommodating. The space was laid out well, but seemed kinda lazily executed. The motif stayed the same as the font from the apparel matched the writing on the wall.

I'm looking forward to the show coming up, but it's likely I'll pass on the merch. I'm excited Atlanta was included in Kanye's plans but I would love more effort on his end to give his fans something to line up and clamor for.
