    there's nothing to hide and no one to hide from, especially yourself





    Christmas, ah christmas. This holiday carries plenty of expectations. The expectations of being with family, making cookies, a home cooked meal, a designated drunk uncle, and a house full of unwavering love. I've never had that traditional Christmas. My loose rendition of that looks like burning gingerbread cookies in the oven while my cousins and I had our own secret Santa. 
    The reality is that many people don't have the traditional Christmas. Not because they live a distressful and unfortunate life. Perhaps, it began that way but it doesn't mean it is that way now.

    Christmas Misfit

    I may not have an identity crisis but I sure have location crisis. My anxiety with moving stems a bit deeper than normal affections. On December 31st, I will have to uproot from my quaint little apartment I made my own in Spanish Harlem and find a new place to call home. Although I'm not moving too far and possibly only a borough away, moving gives me anxiety. And for unique reasons...

    I know the agonizing dilemma: Buying the perfect gift that is affordable, yet thoughtful, yet funny, yet nice. Oh, and it has to be representative of your entire friendship or relationship. No pressure! Okay, stop hyperventilating. I'm here to help you and perhaps, make you chuckle a bit. It's the only way I know how to overcome an obstacle -- with poise and lots of laughing. Like, a lot of laughing and maybe two bottle of wine.
    Some of my favorite conversations exist only in emojis. Have you ever seen those Instagram bios that are literally just a sequence of emojis and it makes absolute sense. Like, I totally get you! That is because emojis fill in blanks that even words can't describe. Some of my friends even look like my favorite emojis (ahem, the running man). For Halloween, my fellow Babe at 6B and I were bunny twins. So here are four gift guides for twentysomething year olds who are self-described emojis (you know what I'm talking about!) -- The Basic Bitch Princess, The OG Grandma, The Pile of Poo Grinch, and the most horrid one The One Who Wants Nothing

    Since athleisure is now a word. I decided to make up another word -- Anomalic. Sharing a poem I gently jotted on the subway along with this attire perfectly capturing athletic and sensual tones.

    Now I get to say that I have a good friend in Dallas that is only a short 2.5 hours plane ride away, two dogs name Jax and Penny, a two-story house, and a Mexican/Colombian family in Dallas. Not shabby for a 24 year old, huh?

    Encouraging you to join the ultra spicy (and full of shearling) Buttercup Club in this second Winter Look installation with In Support Of. Aside from Monochromatic outfits, it's clear that In Support Of also some great statement pieces filled with enough character to stand alone. Or all together, like we have styled in this second Winter Look. Monochromatic outfits are fun, but there's something satisfying about mixing patterns and chaos to create something even more imaginative.

    When a shop takes a brave decision to support the underdogs, I can't help but give them a mental applause. After all, we are always presented with choices. What we decide to do in these opportunities defines who we are as human beings and as individuals. In Support Of, a retail concept shop who chooses to only focus on new talent, just gained a fan -- me.  So, my gals and I are here to serve you some serious Winter Looks in designers curated by In Support Of. Starting with this Monochromatic trend...
