Confessions of a Fashionista Mom to be…

As my due date rapidly approaches I am haunted with this ongoing thought of my daughter coming an I lose my fashion sense or she grows up thinking I never had any.
I’ve temporarily relocated and while packing my things I started to go through clothes I could no longer fit, that’s when the thought crossed my mind what do I keep for Aria. What if she thinks my style is horrendous? What if I get comfortable walking around in soccer mom outfits? Will she view my style how I view my moms? I’ve always wished my mother had “flavor” so I could steal her stuff or she had like vintage Chanel I could fall in love with. I want to be the mom who’s daughter looks back at pictures of her and says “my mom was fly”. Or she’s baby pictures of herself an says “I was fly”.
These are the random thoughts that trickle through my head at 3am between bathroom runs and trying to getting comfortable.

Brandee Younger @ The Bunker Studio, 6/24/13

Very, very sad. It took 2 months for me to learn that a twitter buddy & awesome photographer Donald Agarrat, passed away back in September. One day he tweeted me asking to shoot my recording session, came & shot the session and made friends with everybody there! Musicians and engineers alike 🙂 Then, he came to the Harlem Arts Fest & shot us there…just because he wanted to and was a serious fan of the music. He brought a lot of light to some stressful moments and made everyone smile! ♥ ♥ Like, the nicest person, ever!

We’ve mainly kept in touch on twitter, and after not receiving a tweet from him in a while, I looked at his page to learn that he suddenly died, so young. He took these wonderful shots of us at The Bunker Studio in Brooklyn, which appears to be the last set of photos added to his flikr. Sending love. You will be missed, Donald!
