Describe your Style.
However I feel that day .. most of the time it’s casual street wear Bc I’m in the shop all day... but I like to think I can pull off anything.
What's a normal day for you like?
It’s pretty easy going .. I wake up around 8am walk Mr. Peanut Butter (my schnauzer), depending on the day I might go to a kickboxing class at Vesta Movement early around 10am, late breakfast with my aunt then I’m off to the shop ... I’m there all day from 1 - 9pm taking appointments & walk-ins. After work, I take peanut out & the rest of the night I’m in my studio working on flash or the next days appointment. Then I get ready to start it all over again tomorrow.
