**Now Playing: Bus Ride by Kaytranada Feat. Karriem Riggins, and River Tiber** 

 

A few Saturday's ago I was gifted the opportunity to attend an art event in my city.  The headline? Black Opal, The Art Experience organized by non other than the fabulous Kandice Clark.  Hosted downtown at The 5 & Dime studio this event sought out for me to have an amazing evening indeed.

I enjoy being in the same atmosphere as other creatives and like minded individuals.  Ill take a night of art, champagne, and sophisticated personalities over a hot, overstuffed club any day. 

My BFF also exhibited more of his work and gifted the audience with another round of live painting.  Tamara, who is no stranger to my lens, loaned her aesthetics to the talents of Phedre D's artistic fingers. 

I also was super happy to be around a lot of my really good friends.

Kandice's shows are everything wishes are made of.  Love it!

Still very much into my Funk Wave Bounces aesthetics for the summer.   I paired this floral button down with track pants I brought from H&M.  Feeling super 80's especially with the top 3 buttons undone.  Thanks Jerrell for snapping this pic of me.  Just in case you didn't peep my Instagram stories on this day...
