Neckbreakin’ NYFW - Look 3 | Purple Rain


"It began as Lynn Do, then Neckbreakin’ Lynn as I threw on the last minute touches to this outfit, and then Prince as it humorously flew out of my dear friend’s mouth."

While I was approaching my dear friend, he greeted me as such - “What’s up, Prince!” At first, I wasn’t sure how to take that comparison but I found myself vibing in this sexual and music icon. I quickly replied, “I can dig it.” So that was my day. It began as Lynn Do, then Neckbreakin’ Lynn as I threw on the last minute touches to this outfit, and then Prince as it humorously flew out of my dear friend’s mouth. Somewhere along the inter-web, I read a quote that has always stuck with me - “You’re under no obligation to be the same person you were five minutes ago.” And it’s true. Whether you’re tapping into a new character that day packaged by your own identity or you choose to be a new and improved “you,” it should be a fun and limitless process. Everyone can try to be Prince (in this case) but no one can be Prince-Lynn or Prince-insert name. And no one needs to know. How many times have you woke up and felt like Beyonce? *Raises hand* Yeah, me too. 

In collaboration with Reverie and Mary Lai for Fashion Week, this sporty and chic outfit came about to combat the rain and to tackle the fashionable holiday. It was just a huge plus that I got to play an ode unintentionally to one of the most original artist - Prince.
