In the last year of college when I was almost done with my master’s degree, I decided I wanted pink/purple hair. So I did it! I felt great! Like the spark of life on the inside was shown on the outside. Being a fashion designer/stylist, crazy cuts and colors are something that I see all the time, even if just within the industry. So I felt like I found something that was sort of a happy medium between the professional world and the creative world. I mean, red is a natural color.. and pink is only a few shades off from that right? Well, apparently not to everyone!

The video is detailing how I got the color, read on for how it changed my life!

What is Vintage? What is Retro? Style Why’s Answers!

27 Jan

What is considered truly vintage is highly debated. As a general rule, an item is considered vintage when it is older than 20 years. That’s right, currently anything from 1994 or before is considered vintage.

So what is retro? Retro by definition is involving, relating to, or reminiscent of things past; retrospective. But in fashion, we use it to define pieces from the 1950’s, 1960’s or 1970’s. This may also include items made to look like they are from that time period, but are actually modern.

I adore vintage clothing. Having a piece of history that you not only get to own, but wear and make part of the representation of your own personality is a wonderful feeling. The old saying “they don’t make ’em like they used to” applies very much to the fashion industry. Take a look at the construction of a gown from the 1940’s or a jacket from the 1960’s. Most pieces will look and feel surprisingly different in more ways than one.

Check out my video below, going a little more in depth on the topic, and be sure to subscribe to my channel! I will be posting videos VERY soon detailing vintage pieces from my own closet that I will be selling in my eBay store. Check out my current inventory here. Also, ask away with your style Q’s, I would love to help with your Style Why’s!!

Graduation! √ – Master’s degree. Movin’ Right Along…

7 Sep

It’s time to get real. Not that I haven’t been for the past four years, but working on a Bachelor’s, then Master’s degree has been one of the main focuses for some time now. And since I officially graduated on Friday, September 6th, much of my focus will now be directed toward caring for and expanding the Areli Sinclair clothing line.

School can be rough on a business. It takes a lot of time that would normally be dedicated to projects and operations. Thankfully, Full Sail University takes great consideration of their Entertainment Business Master’s students. Many of our assignments were things that I could use for my business in real time and would have been doing on my own anyway. What can I say, I was able to write my own professional, realistic, thirty something page business plan by the end of it, and get so many great insights from instructors on everything from how to pitch it to investors, down to how to deal with employees on a day to day basis.

I met so many wonderful people- many connections that I know will never be broken. Finding people who have similar values and passions is priceless, expecially in the art industries.

Now I am ready to take on the  “real” world and show them all I’ve got! I’ve molded my brand to perfection. Little did I know, it was molding me all the while. Personal situations that arose while in both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees all ended up becoming part of my brand story and a foundation for my life and my clothing line.

Your early 20’s are a funny time in life. You’re more mature than a teenager, but just coming into adulthood and finding out what life’s all about. Most times, it shows up with a slap in the face. I won’t hesitate to tell you that that is how it was for me. But there comes a point when you begin to realize that all those bumps in the road are there for a reason. This is the way growth happens. True happiness forms when we learn to appreciate all aspects of life, not just the good times.

In the end, I am so elated that I decided to go to school… and then back again. Many people didn’t, and still don’t understand my decisions. But that’s ok. Your life is your own, and living it to make the best “you” will end up being the best for everyone.

Onward and upward my loves… let’s see where the wind takes me from here 😉

Orlando MC Eturn on Women in Hip Hop, Underground vs. Mainstream, and her Upcoming Tour!

27 May

Recently I caught up with Eturn- the quickly uprising female mc, who has been creating an awesome buzz in Orlando’s hip hop scene as of late.

Her debut video for the single “Come Close” with DJ SPS was released last Tuesday. It completes the essence of the song by taking you on a mind bending tour of the contrast between mistrust in different aspects of life, while examining the issue of conformity in politics and in hip hop. I also took notice that in the video, she leaves the psychiatrist’s office the same way she went in, giving reassurance to trust your own instinct. Seeing the video moved me to reach out to her to discuss women in hip hop, the underground versus the mainstream, and what she has planned next.

From the Inside Out. DIY How to Dye Your Hair Pink and Purple

15 May

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I have been feeling a change in the air. Often times, solidifying a mental or spiritual change with a physical change is a great way to commemorate the occasion! [This is why makeovers do wonders for people’s self esteem!] It all starts on the inside though. The way you feel will always speak louder than the way you look. So make sure you never forget to take care of the inside too!
