SWRV: M$. Lookbook

Check it out! Lafayette sent me SWRV's new lookbook. They're based out of Philly for those of you near the area!

SWRV is an emerging team of collectors and artists from various corners of the U.S. that come together to breathe fresh new life into classic material.  In our newest style file, we've re-imagined the touch and feel of what it truly means to be a M$. Strength, style, and substance take the lead for this collection of photos that openly explores sharp new ways for women to play with their femininity by using depth, texture, and layers in their day to day styles.

The first time Lafayette showed me the website I immediately fell in love with some of the peices. I love vintage items and the unique styles you can build off of them. Its art :)

P.S. Make sure you follow Lafayette on twitter: @LafayetteKanard
I love his creativity and chill vibe.

"Rolling through the Bay" by Scott Weaver

This is amazing... Scott Weaver created this out of toothpicks and it took him 35 years!! It's a beautiful piece. My first reaction was to think that this guy had no friends, but then I watched the video and realized how much thought was actually put into this project. I love it.

Central Park Zoo and Boathouse

The second part of our day.... first stop was the Central Park Zoo. Everything we did today was all Lamar's idea. I live in nyc, but had no idea that central park had a zoo... or a boathouse lol smh

 Sea otters... they look like they have so much fun. When we first got to the zoo, I was wondering how I was gonna feel about seeing these animals being held captive but the otters seemed to be happy so I just let the day rock after that lol. 
 Ashley led the pack with her map 

 It took a while to see the harbor seals... the only animal I see in there is a pigeon. I felt it was appropriate to snap a flick lol.
 The polar bear....
 ... was massive
 I liked this
 Throwback moment... I haven't drank out of a water fountain in years lol

 I felt like the crocodile hunter when I saw this bird. It was literally right in front of me. 
 Swans and turtles
 Father & daughter <3

 I thought this was a good pic
 Poisonous blue dart frog

 The rooster had iridescent feathers


 ------------------------- CENTRAL PARK BOATHOUSE -------------------------

Like I said before, I didn't even know this place existed so it was a great surprise for all of us. I'd love to go back here. Its only $12 to row for an hour and you can have up to 4 ppl per boat.

 We call her the "Turtle Lady". Look closely
This guy was chillin in the CUT reading a book. I wanna do this one day. 
Thanks Lamar, for treating us this day. It was a lot of fun *hug* lol
