out of all of the peculiar women, arya starks and khaleesi daenerys targaryen are two of my favorite characters on hbo's game of thrones. i’m rooting for daenerys to regain her rightful place on the iron throne—all queens need their own kingdoms.

who are your favorite peculiar women characters and what kingdom, of the seven, would you fight for—to gain the seat on the iron throne?

i am the most transparent when _____.

i’m with him.

 

what is one thing, that you’ve learned about yourself after curating neonV vol.III: bare, that has propelled you to explore something new or to change something about yourself?

one thing that i’ve learned is balancing family (my papi + his eight year old son), graduate school, social life and neonV is quite difficult. prior to graduate school, all of my free time was devoted to neonV + social life but all of a sudden i’m living with papi playing susie homemaker + writing a few papers per week, not including four discussion questions, whew. it’s like life changed in an instant and i was not prepared.

i found that writing papers about the sustainability of company “x” or creating a hiring package for company “y” drained all of my creativity needed to curate the fashion section. i decided to take a break from school during the summer session, regroup, and redirect my energies towards my baby, neonV. the very moment i decided this, things began to fall back into place with neonV, the commander is back ladies ;)

your flight is delayed, the first thing you do is:

a. get food.

b. connect to airline’s wifi

c. take a nap

 

what is one thing, that you’ve learned about yourself after curating neonV vol.III: bare, that has propelled you to explore something new or to change something about yourself?

i often joke that i have creative add, and volume III’s theme really challenged me. initially, i had no idea what i wanted to focus on and when i did come up with an idea or concept, i was at a lost for words on how to explain it.

if i could take pictures of the visions in head, i’d be a much better communicator. 

i eventually came up with concepts for my sections, but often thought about scratching the whole idea when things didn’t exactly play out like the {movie} treatment i had in my head. everything else that i thought of, i couldn’t commit to because it seemed corny or unoriginal. 

i learned not to be married to the initial idea, because as with most thing a in life— shit changes. so, i went with plan a with modifications from plan b, c and d.

as creatives, we often have our mind set on one thing and it has to be done a certain way—our way. i learned that even though i can, i don’t have to do everything myself and that it’s totally fine to flip the script.***

Story of my life…that’s why they call me “Sookie” now, “What are you?” [seriously, it’s my nickname now…lol] Well, “I AM Something like a Hybrid Chic…” #peculiar #peculiarwoman

                                                                  the contemporaries:

one great question can go a long way: each month, a contemporary influencer, tastemaker or cultural producer, in the fields of art, literature and culture will share their current recommendations, thoughts and advice.

 

                                                q: what are you captivated by this month?

                                                  a: this month i am captivated by:

 

  • the brooklyn flea in philly-i have not made it to the brooklyn flea in brooklyn, but happened to be visiting philly, on the launch of the satellite fleamarket at the piazza in the northern liberties neighborhood of the city. the curated market was rich with vintage furniture, clothing and a wonderful mix of jewelry and art. I love it and wish i could visit every weekend. 
  • i’ve been working on getting my apartment in order, and buying rugs is something i’ve been obsessed with this month. my dream is to have a place layered with various textiles. i’m on the lookout for wonderful flat woven rugs like these from west elm, gypsya and interwoven:
  • i’m totally into stud earrings and have been coveting these turquoise ones from elizabeth cole.
