A Supreme cap, Monki shirt dress, Zara neoprene top, jacket (it's my cousins, I'm not sure where it's from) and a pair of Beyond Retro boots and jeans.

I like to explore London all touristy like, visit restaurants I've never gone to before, Brick Lane Sundays, daydream, watch old episodes of Freaks And Geeks and Kanye West interviews, and window-shop with my girls.

I don't really think I've found my style yet, so everyday is dress up, based on my mood. I'm mostly doing a ghetto goth grandma look for now.

I was born in America, but I've lived in London for the majority of my life. I also lived in Ghana (where I'm from) for two years. 
What's it Ghana like?
London and Ghana both feel like home to me. I kinda feel like it took me moving to Ghana to get a thick skin and enjoy life more. The food, the people and scenery are everything to me. It's awesome.
