WWW: Solange Knowles' Wedding

This past Sunday singer Solange Knowles broke the internet with her insanely cute New Orleans nuptials. She married her longtime director beau Alan Ferguson in one of the dopest ceremonies I've seen in a really long time. These days everyone kind of wants to be that traditional 20-mile-train bride while she went for a look completely of her own. She's become known more and more for her impeccable style and she let it be known to the world on this very day.

It all started with the fashion. Lord, the fashion. Solo opted for an ivory Stephane Rolland caped jumpsuit with a deep v neckline for the actual ceremony. She continued to change up looks thereafter and every single one of them were somehow that-much-more perfect than the last.

My favorite part of her nuptials was that it was true to who she actually is. After they became husband and wife they road down the streets of New Orleans on the cutest white beach-cruisers. They also had their family play a huge part in their nuptials as you can see in the dope bridal party photo featuring the likes of Beyonce, Ms. Tina Knowles and even Janelle Monae

Solange and her son Julez even performed a cute little dance routine at the afterparty. 

Le sigh. Isn't love sweet?

OG.

Back in high school there was no brand I loved more than Adidas. I'd save up my tiny Forever 21 checks just so I could get the newest Jeremy Scott collab. 

What I love about Adidas the most is their originality; Unlike their competitors they were willing to create some of the most creative, fashion forward, highly sought after pieces. 
I came up with this look while planning an outfit for an upcoming event. At first, I kinda thought the idea would've looked a bit crazy (especially here in miami) but once I added this BCBG belt everything else quickly fell into place.

I threw on my last purchase from the Zara spring/summer sale (the heels) which I found for a mere $19! God do I love a good deal.

-P.S. I don't believe in paying full price for anything (especially from Zara) since it more than likely will go on sale soon. Working in retail/merchandising will teach you a few tricks of the trade ;)

Sporty Spice

Holaaaa! I'm back. Sorry for zee brief hiatus, I've just been really uninspired lately. With both the blogging community + fashion. I've decided to throw away just about every fuck I've had before and just simply do me. Let's see where it takes us.
Other than that life has been exceptionally well. I'm quickly adapting to this idea of getting back to whatever the fuck makes me happy and it's honestly very refreshing. Sometimes we lose sight of things and start focusing on shit that never really mattered to us before just because we may want what others have/may want to be where they are in life
I've always remained true to the person I present to you today. I do not have "stacks on deck" nor do I pretend to. I'm in le struggle just like everyone else; I work my ass off...always have. My point is, we can never compare ourselves to anyone else (although we tend to, esp. in blogging). You don't know what roads that person could have taken to get there and if you did, could you walk that same walk?
One thing that I can't understand most is when people appear to be someone they're not. Regardless of your follower count, views per day, sponsors, whatever...don't be a dick. Humble yourself.

That being said, Wilde+Free is a free(er) agent. Free to be whoever the fuck I want.

WWW: Bleaches & Cremes

Something I've been obsessing over for what seems like forever now is hair color. I just never know what color I want my hair. This past year I kinda stopped my exploration of different dyes and bleaching techniques since 1) I had a somewhat conservative job and 2) I'm bald.

With those two major things standing in my way, I chose to settle for a toned down blonde. It still allowed me to show a bit of who I was without being "too much". Now that I'm no longer working in an environment like that I've decided to take things one step further and really experiment with color. I'm a person who really appreciates color and individuality and I love standing out.

 As of late I've been in love with the idea of pastel hair. Lilacs, pinks and peach have all been on my mind. I've watched tons of videos on youtube and have already decided to give it a go. If it doesn't work out I can just dye it again right? Its only hair.

Stay tuned for the turn out ;)

Mamacita.

Hi guys! I recently picked up this dress at my local red, white & blue. I fell in love with its 'old-time' vibe and double-breasted detailing. The print is pretty dope too. I knew I just had to have it.
Paired the super flowy dress with my new leather sandals that I got from Zara during their season sale. They were only $25 so I figured why not, I knew I'd get some use out of them someday.
As of late I've been experimenting more and more with makeup, this lip color has quickly become a favorite of mine. Its a mixture of a nyx lip cream, a covergirl lip blast thingy and an orange-y gloss on top. I love the look it gives, its just enough pink.

Who knows, maybe I'll do a tut one day...
For finishing touches I threw on my denim jacket, my gold watch and added a few gold brooches. My grandma is gonna kill me when she sees that I've been wearing them lol. Can't help it, they just add something extra to any outfit.

Saturday Six: In Distress

Distressed denim will never go out of style. Honestly. Its just so damn easy. They give off a "idgaf" vibe without even having to say it. More and more celebs are embracing this trend, Beyonce + Rihanna just to name a few.
Photos via Pinterest

I love the playfulness of a good pair of distressed jeans, the holes always end up getting bigger but its ok...it kinda tells a story. There's a memory for every tear and rip. I think its so cool how this trend somehow makes skin appropriate. It can be dressed up and actually look quite "put together" and not bummy.

Below are my top 6 distressed picks!

What do you think about the distressed trend? Would you rock it?
