Mariah

21 / creative + stylist + model / east bay, ca

 

My favorite find of 2017 was coming across a real life earth angel.  To me, Mariah aka @lil.mymy embodies true style from her jaw dropping taste in fashion, playful accessories, vibrant hair color, down to her shoes that you wouldn't mind walking all over you.  With a growing follower base of 13.5k, she is as real as real gets- no phony persona or photoshop tricks to mislead you of her natural ability to stop you in your tracks.

Naturally, bad bitches always link up and catching up with @lil.mymy was a treat.  We spent the day in beautiful San Francisco to capture her essence in a photoset you can view when you click the button below.

(don't get caught slippin', click dis shit!)

What do you do?

I am a stylist & model. My day job is a Production Assistant at Chairish, a home décor website.  My true passion is working with clothes and eventually designing my own label. 

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-30 at 8.18.22 PM.png

 

In 7 words or less, describe your style.

Cheap... But make it fashion.

 

What’s your most recent must have?

Well-tailored garments, detailed fabrics with simple silhouettes, bratz boots, and the puffy-er the jacket the better.

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-30 at 8.20.31 PM.png

 

What is your earliest fashion memory?

My earliest fashion memory would probably have to be in 3rd grade. I was in my room for HOURS trying to find the perfect fit for my school field trip we were going on the next day. I was freaking out because I didn't have any new clothes to pull looks. I started crying and my grandma bought me a new fit from Mervyns:-) Always been a diva.

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-30 at 8.22.58 PM.png

 

What is your closet comprised of?

A whooole lot of rare shit. I feel like everyone thinks that about their closet though. I love thrifting / shopping online for vintage deadstock items. I don't like having what everyone else has on or what's "trendy". But honestly I'd say about 85% of the garments in my closet I got for less than $10 because I'm so cheap lolz. I do splurge every once in awhile on designer if its worth it. Also I have enough jackets to last me the entire winter rotation without repetition. I have a problem. 

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-30 at 8.25.24 PM.png

 

Were you naughty or nice this year? :P

Bitch I was TOO nice this year... 2017 was such a crazy horrible year for me. 2018 coming naughty with no fucks to give like I should have been doing.

How does your upbringing reflect in your style today?

I grew up with having a single mother and not a lot of money, but I always loved clothes. It taught me to work with what you got and has turned me into a complete thrift goddess.

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-30 at 8.37.05 PM.png

 

Where do you go or what do you do to get inspired?

Social media is the easiest way to find inspiration. I always have my phone in my hand, as most of our generation does. So while I'm scrolling on Insta I pin all the cool shit to go back later and make mood boards or draw inspo from. Also, I get inspired from anything. If I see a granny walking down the street and her fit fye, best believe I'm going to re-create it.

 

What are you currently listening to?

Female artists!! I'm into allll types of music, but lately ive been drawn to listening mostly to women rappers, singers and spoken word. I love me some Rico Nasty, Tommy Genesis, Abra, Ms. Nina, La Goony & Bootychaain, Jorja Smith, Kelela, Fergie and Gwen. The list goes on. When I'm in the turn-up mood I turn on an electronic mix / track on soundcloud too.

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-30 at 8.18.45 PM.png

 

What are you drawn to first when shopping?

SHOES! Always got to hit up the shoe racks before I even scope out the clothing. Also I'm a crazy Jacket fanatic. A definite 1/3 of my entire closet is jackets for some reason I cannot say no to good outerwear.

 

Do you find it easy to collaborate with other creatives in the Bay Area who really understand your vision?

Yeah! I mean, you'll always run into people who "fuck with your vision" no matter where you are.  One of my fav teams to work with was def my shoot with you @thetigerhour and Dre @dre.x.criatura!  Its all about the energy people put out and how well you vibe in order to get your vision on 100.

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-30 at 8.35.28 PM.png

 

Put us on to who you’re currently stalking.

Wow, I'm the biggest Instagram stalker ever. This is probably my favorite question I could go on forever but let me keep it to my current favs!

@rico__nasty; a female rapper. HUGE hair inspo and her music tunes my into my inner bad bitch.

@melovemealot ; Model / artist. She is just next level asf. Photoshop alien queen.

@uglyworldwide; Model. If you don't already follow her.... Get a grip ok.

@erikabowes; Aesthetic, aesthetic, AESTHETIC! Everything.

@internetgirl; To keep up on the latest and greatest thrift finds.

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-30 at 8.40.32 PM.png

 

How do you dress yourself on days you can do everything you wanna do?

How I dress honestly just depends on the mood I wake up in, as anyone does. 

Dressing up and being extra always improves my mood.

 

Screen Shot 2017-12-30 at 8.39.31 PM.png

 

Where are your top dream destinations and why? 

I have not been able to travel out of the country yet! I just bought my ticket to Tokyo in February that I am SO psyched about because Japan has always been #1 on my travel list. I'm planning to hit the East coast soon as well.

 

What do you think are some of the differences in fashion styles between east and west?

I think the main style difference between the coasts are the weather. Cali you can literally wear hoe fits year round comfortably (which I love) but New York in the winter.... BRICK

AROUND THE ISLE

HAWAI'I ISLAND

 

F2CC347D-1FD2-420C-B548-BA46998BF26C.JPG

THE NEWS TEAM IS BACK IN THE ISLANDS AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME ON THE ISLAND OF HAWAI'I- THE YOUNGEST AND LARGEST ISLAND IN THE HAWAIIAN ISLAND CHAIN.  we drove around the whole island and seen the pure beauty of its people and landscape.

"You can travel through all but four of the world's different climate zones there, ranging from Wet Tropical to Polar Tundra, a result of the shielding effect and elevations of the massive volcanoes Maunakea and Maunaloa. From the molten magma flowing at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to the snow-capped heights of Maunakea; from the lush valleys of the Hamakua Coast to the jet-black sands of Punaluu Beach, the island of Hawaii is an unrivaled expression of the power of nature. However you decide to experience the island, it is sure to leave you humbled!" - VIA GOHAWAII.COM

    the island is magical and alive, at that.    take a peek at our adventure to heaven on earth ~

    after lunch in hilo, we set out to visit rainbow falls.  the rain had the falls pumping and it was incredible to see the island cleansing itself.   "Its name originated from the fact that on some early mornings a rainbow can be seen arching across the falls. Waianuenue Falls is its Hawaiian name and means "rainbow seen in water." Like all waterfalls, Rainbow Falls' display is dependent upon recent rainfall and can fluctuate between a single thin stream of water and a raging cascade. When the flow is just right, the falls resemble an 80 ft. white shower falling over a rock shelf into a placid blue-green pool."  - via www.lovebigisland.com

MOUNT SHASTA

SISKIYOU COUNTY, CALIFORNIA

 

IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING, BUT THE NEWS TEAM FINALLY MADE THE VOYAGE TO MOUNT SHASTA.  THE SCENIC 4.5 HOUR DRIVE TO THE MOUNTAINS WAS DEFINITELY WORTH THE WAIT AS WE WERE GREETED BY WARM WEATHER, FRIENDLY LOCALS AND AN ABUNDANCE OF FLOWING WATER.  WE FELT THE ENERGY AS SOON AS WE ARRIVED AND IT ONLY GREW STRONGER AS WE GOT CLOSER TO THE WATER.

THE NEWS TEAM PLANNED AHEAD AND MAPPED OUT SEVERAL POINTS OF INTERESTS INCLUDING EPIC WATERFALLS, THE HEADWATERS, AND THRIFT STORES ALONG THE WAY.

WE COMPILED OUR BEST MEMORIES OF THIS AMAZING TRIP AND ARE ANXIOUS FOR THE DAY WE HEAD BACK TO THIS SPECIAL PLACE OFF THE GRID.

OUR ACCOMODATIONS WERE BOOKED MONTHS IN ADVANCE FOR A BEAUTIFUL SMALL HOUSE NESTLED AMONG GIANT TREES IN A PRIVATE MEADOW WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS OF THE SNOW CAPPED MOUNTAIN.  THE HOUSE SAT RIGHT NEXT TO A FLOWING CREEK SO WE SLEPT LIKE BABIES LISTENING TO THE SOUNDS OF NATURE AND IT'S COMPANY. 

NEAR THE BOTTOM OF THE FALLS, WE FOUND MINERAL CLAY SEEPING OUT OF THE ROCKS.  

A COUPLE TIMES, JAIA THE HUSKY @BORNTOBEJAIA TOOK OFF INTO THE WILD MEADOW, CHASING DEER, RABBITS, AND SIMPLY FOLLOWING HER NOSE.  IT WAS A SPECIAL MOMENT FOR THE TRIBE AS WE LEARNED THROUGH THE TRUE TEST OF THE WILD THAT WE ARE A PART OF HER PACK.

SWINGING PEACEFULLY OVER THE CREEK

ON A WATERFALL TOUR OF THE WORLD 

THE NEWS TEAM ALWAYS FINDS TREASURE ON OUR TRAVELS, LIKE THIS MANNEQUIN DRIPPED HEAD TO TOE IN VINTAGE MCDONALD'S UNIFORM SWAG.

ON OUR WAY OUT, WE HIKED DOWN TO THIS WATERFALL.  THE BIGGEST WATERFALL WE VISITED, BOASTING 129 FT FALLS, 22 FT IN DEPTH, A FLOW OF 100 MILLION GALLONS, AND CASCADING 42 DEGREE WATER.

THE NEWS TEAM HEADED TO RICHMOND, FOR THE BAY'S FIRST EVER A CURRENT AFFAIR SHOW FEATURING THE BEST VINTAGE UNDER ONE ROOF.  PURCHASING A PREVIEW TICKET GOT US IN 2 HOURS EARLY BEFORE GENERAL ADMISSION FOR THE BEST VIEW OF WHAT EVERYONE HAD TO OFFER.

A CURRENT AFFAIR MERGES THE BEST VINTAGE AND ITS ENTHUSIASTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR IN NEW YORK AND LOS ANGELES TO HOUSE AN AMAZING SHOWCASE OF FASHION WITH PIECES RANGING FROM $30-$3000.

 

"Our over 60 vintage retailers and private dealers showcase the best in vintage clothing, accessories and jewelry. Shop everything from rare denim and American workwear to avant garde design pieces to luxury staples from the likes of Chanel and Hermes." -VIA ITSACURRENTAFFAIR.COM
 

THE FORMER FORD ASSEMBLY PLANT WAS FILLED END TO END WITH COLORFUL, ETHEREAL TREASURE.  WE COULDN'T BELIEVE HOW MANY AMAZING PIECES WERE BEING COLLECTED BY MANY LOCAL VENDORS RIGHT HERE IN THE BAY AREA.

 

"Each event features a robust roster of exhibitors, prominent supporters from the fashion and editorial worlds." - VIA ITSACURRENTAFFAIR.COM


WE KINDA WISHED THERE WERE MORE VENDORS CATERING TO THE GENERATION OF BUYERS THAT CARE ABOUT 80'S, 90'S, AND Y2K MUSIC/NOSTALGIC FASHION, AS ALOT OF WHAT WE SEEN WERE NOT YOUR EVERYDAY, WEARABLE AND WORKABLE PIECES YOU COULD CALL YOUR "FAVORITE" IN YOUR OWN WARDROBE.  THE OFFERING WEIGHED HEAVILY IN WOMEN'S CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES, BUT THAT JUST GOES ALONG WITH THE SATURATION OF THE FASHION INDUSTRY.

NONETHELESS, WE WERE DEFINITELY IN VINTAGE HEAVEN, ADORING AND TRYING ON PIECES FROM FAR PARTS OF THE WORLD RIGHT AT OUR FINGERTIPS. TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF OUR FAVORITE BOOTHS AND PIECES...

WE CATCH UP WITH THE EVER EVOLVING DRE LA CRIATURA IN HER HOMETOWN FOR THE news' FIRST EVER STYLE PROFILE.  WE TALK WHAT'S NEW, WHAT'S GOOD, AND WHAT SHE'S FORECASTING FOR A/W '16.

 

INTRODUCE YOURSELF.

WHADDUP!  I GO BY DRE, DREBAYBAY, CRIATURA, BUT YOU CAN CALL ME DREA.

 

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I'M A FASHION INDUSTRY HUSSY.  but really tho, i love styling, curating, and telling stories through photography.

 

WHAT'S YOUR MOST RECENT "MUST HAVE"?  

my current must have is some all over tan boots,specifically ones with a hiker boot lace.  it's not a timb- it's the new boot.  still with a feminine edge but versatile... and they're just hard ~~~

 

 

 

WHAT STANDS OUT TO YOU UPON FIRST GLANCE; THE CLOTHES OR THE PERSON WEARING THEM?

THIS IS TOUGH...  I DO NOTICE PEOPLE FIRST.  THE HAIR, THEIR MANNERISMS... BUT WHAT KEEPS ME INTERESTED IS THEIR STYLE.  I LOOK AT HOW THEY PUT THEMSELVES TOGETHER.  

WHAT'S INTRIGUING TO ME IS THE BREAKDOWN OF THE OUTFIT.  THE BEST EXAMPLE I CAN GIVE YOU IS WHEN I WAS ON THE TRAIN AND I SAW A WOMAN DRESSED IN AN EVERYDAY WORK OUTFIT: TROUSERS AND A TRENCH.  SHE HAD A DEEP RED LIP, METALLIC NAILS, A PURPOSELY CRINKLED TRENCHCOAT LAYERED OVER A PURPLE BLAZER... but WHAT GOT ME was her bamboo earrings.  it's about how you wear it.  she HAD DIFFERENT ELEMENTS THAT MADE HER STANDOUT AND MADE ME ASK "WHERE YOU GOIN'?".

 

ANY SKINCARE FAVORITES YOU CANNOT DO WITHOUT?

I'M ALL ABOUT THE OILS.

COCONUT, TEA TREE, OLIVE, CASTOR OIL FOR HAIR, FACE, AND HEALTH... oh! I ALSO LOVE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR AS A TONER and coconut oil as a makeup remover and moisturizer.  

I LIKE NATURAL, ALL PURPOSE PRODUCTS- IF IT CAN HEAL MY BODY INSIDE AND OUT, I'M ALL ABOUT IT.

WHICH ITEMS IN YOUR WARDROBE DO YOU CHERISH MOST?

I CHERISH MY GOLD THE MOST.  

WHEN I STEP OUT, I'LL REACH FOR MY GOLD PIECES.  I HAVE TWO GOLD NECKLACES FROM MY GRANDPA, ONE WITH AN EAGLE PENDANT AND THE OTHER IS A HERRINGBONE CHAIN.  

ANOTHER SOLID PIECE IS MY JADE BRACELET I'VE HAD ON FOR 4 YEARS FOR GOOD LUCK AND PROTECTION.  

 

WHAT INSPIRES YOU CREATIVELY?  AND HOW DOES THIS AFFECT YOUR STYLE?

HONESTLY, STREET STYLE IS MOST IMPORTANT to me BECAUSE it fills me up with IDEAS.  WHEN YOU SEE IT OUT ON THE STREET, IT'S MORE ATTAINABLE.  IT OPENS UP THE ART OF STYLING BECAUSE IT SHOWS ME DIFFERENT WAYS I CAN STYLE A PIECE.

I'M SEEING THAT CREATIVITY MAKES A TREND.  A MILLION PEOPLE CAN WEAR THE SAME PIECE, BUT IT'S HOW EACH PERSON MAKES IT THERE OWN.  WHAT MAKES THE PIECE STAND OUT MORE THAN A TREND IS SEEING HOW PEOPLE CHOOSE TO WEAR IT.

"HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF IN FASHION AND WHAT MAKES IT DIFFERENT IS HOW IT'S REPURPOSED AND HOW IT'S STYLED."  

 

WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE ARTISTS, MUSICIANS, OR DESIGNERS?

I WAS RAISED ON LISTENING TO A LOT OF OLD SCHOOL FUNK... SALSA TO JAZZ.  IT'S BECOME THE ROOT OF NEW MUSIC I LISTEN TO.  MY CURRENT FAVORITE ARTIST IS SANGO.  FOREVER AND ALWAYS WILL BE OUTKAST, NAS, ERYKAH BADU, AND SEU JORGE.

two designers who i think bring a new perspective to color and structure are @rosie_assoulin and @areanyc.  rosie is great at combining feminine and masculine silohouettes and areanyc inspires me and my approach to styling and photography.

 

WHAT IS YOUR SHOPPING STYLE?

I THINK I HAVE A COUPLE SHOPPING STYLES.  

IT'S DEFINITELY BASED ON MY MOOD. I IMPULSE BUY AND I HAVE SPLURGING MOMENTS BUT I'LL ALWAYS LOVE A GOOD SALE.  IF I CAN PAY LESS FOR IT THEN I WILL.  I LOVE BEING THRIFTY.  

THESE DAYS, BECAUSE OF MY PROFESSION I HAVE TO GO ONLINE AND SEE WHAT'S TRENDINg.  MY STRATEGY IS I'LL PUT IT IN MY CART, SAVE IT FOR LATER, sleep on it, THEN THINK "DO I NEED IT?" "CAN I BUY IT LATER?" OR "CAN I FIND or create it myself?". 

 

 

HOW DOES YOUR UPBRINGING REFLECT IN YOUR STYLE TODAY?

GROWING UP I WAS A TOMBOY and i still carry that into my wardrobe today.  i love mixing menswear into my style and still feeling feminine. i like styling things that you wouldn't normally pair together.  for example, wearing a sexy slip dress with sneakers.  i like looking and feeling relaxed.

 

 

WHAt is something new you're INCORPORATING in your style THIS SEASON AND HOW?

wigs.

i'm all about new hair without doing anything to my own.  hair is a way to express yourself even greater than clothes.  i have about 5 pieces and my collection is still  growing.  i'm still learning what styles work for me but it's so much fun to switch it up on dem.

 

WHAT ARE YOU FORECASTING FOR THE UPCOMING winter SEASON?

i like to call it "at your leisure" which is bringing a sporty casual style in day to day fashion.  things like a hoodie, track pants, and a sneaker are no longer just for going to the gym. mixing formal pieces with sportswear create a unique aesthetic of fashion and function.

 

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE RITUALS?

i enjoy a hot shower... honestly, the simple things.  pampering myself at home with a face or hair mask and enjoying a glass of wine.  having time to do nothing is my idea of relaxing.

 

WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL TO NEXT?

JAMAICA... AND CUBA.

i feel my best in a tropic setting.  i feel most inspired in colorful cultures... plus i love the sun.  i gotta be in the sun.

AYTS / LANIE PUNANI

ARE YOU THAT SOMEBODY?

L A N I E P U N A N I

24 / UNICORN / SEATTLE, WA

TO KNOW LANIE IS TO KNOW A UNICORN.  DID YOU READ that correctly?  SHE'S MAGIC- STRAIGHT UP.  so here you are, approaching the introduction of said legendary creature, that is this woman.  it took me over a month to collect this data because hunting her down is damn near impossible, unless you have the right bait...

 

OK LANIE, YOUR TURN.  INTRODUCE YOURSELF.

hI, HELLO, SUP, ALOHOLLA, HOOTY HOO!  THE NAME'S LANIE PUNANI AND IT AIN'T EASY HAVING A PUSSY.  BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY... IT'S ALL LOVE.

 

 

WHAT ARE YOUR DAILY RITUALS?

I WAKE UP IN A NEW PUNANI.

LAY IN SILENCE AND JUST BE... FOR A MOMENT BEFORE I GET GOING WITH WHATEVER THE DAY BRINGS.  MAKE MY BED, MEDITATE, GRUB, SOMETIMES FLOSS, AND DO A COUPLE TITTY SHAKES WHILST MOONWALKING.

SEND MY ENERGY OUT TO MY PEOPLES AND THE WORLD.  BUT THAT'S CONSTANT THOUGH.

 

WHO OR WHAT DO YOU CURRENTLY DRAW INSPIRATION FROM?

ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING.  FROM THE INTERGALATIC GALAXY TO MY MOM'S INFAMOUS LUMPIA SHANGHAI TO XXX TO THE BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE OF COLOR TO ALL THE INJUSTICES AROUND THE WORLD TO MY FEELINGS TO DARK TO LIGHT TO THE POSITIVITY TO MY NIPPLES TO MY FRIENDS AND 'OHANA TO SOUND WAVES TO HIP HOP TO STRUGGLE TO BOOKS TO HAWAI'I TO SEX TO LAND TO CULTURE TO SUSHI TO GOOD FOOD TO GOOD COMPANY TO LOVE TO BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL LIFE AND TO ME, MY PUNANI.

 

HOW DOES YOUR UPBRINGING REFLECT IN YOUR STYLE TODAY?

THAT HISTORY DOESN'T REPEAT ITSELF;  INSTEAD WE REPEAT HISTORY.  TO ALSO PAY MIND TO MY CULTURE AND ROOTS FROM HAWAI'I TO THE PHILIPPINES.  TO BE RESOURCEFUL.  TO MAKE USE OF WHAT YOU GOT.  TO SEE EVERYTHING WITH A NEW PAIR OF HEART MIND AND EYES.  ALSO, THAT NUDITY IS THE MOST PURE.  DO NOT BE AFRAID.

MOST IMPORTANTLY...

FUCK TRENDS, DO YOU.

 

WHAT STANDS OUT TO YOU UPON FIRST GLANCE; THE CLOTHES OR THE PERSON WEARING THEM?

bOTH BOTH BOTH!  A COMBO OF BOTH!

IT DEPENDS ON THE ENVIRONMENT, WHERE WE AT, MY EYE, MY MIND, THE LIGHTING, AND HOW THEY PRESENT THEMSELVES.  MOST OF THE TIME IT'S WHAT THEY'RE ROCKIN EVEN IF IT'S JUST A HAT AND PANTS OR IT COULD BE THEIR WHOLE GET UP.  BUT THEN I SEE WHO'S ROCKIN' IT AND MOST IMPORTANTLY HOW THEY'RE ROCKIN' IT AND I'M LIKE YES BITCH DO YOU.

YOU CAN HAVE THE MOST FRESHEST PAIR OF SNEAKERS AND I'LL BE LIKE "K COOL NICE".  BUT IF YOU'RE ATTITUDE IS STANKY THEN THOSE SHOES AREN'T AS FRESH AS I FELT THEY WERE.

 

WHAT ABOUT GROWING UP IN HAWAI'I MOLDED YOU INTO THE PERSON YOU ARE TODAY?

THE LAND, THE PEOPLE, THE MOUNTAINS, THE SEA, DA AUNTIEZ, DA UNCLEZ, DA SISTAHZ, DA BRADDAHZ, DA CULTURE, DA HISTORY, DA 'ONO KINE GRINDZ OF COURSE, DA ISLANDER STEEZ, DA SALT, DA KIDZ, DA MELTING POT, DA 'OHANA, DA LOVE, DA SPAM, DA SLIPPAHZ, DA PIDGIN, DA KINE, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY DA ALOHA, BRAH!

ALOHA IS MORE THAN AN ALOHA SHIRT.  SERIOUSLY THO, IT REALLY IS ALL THAT AND THEN SOME.  THERE'S NOTHIG LIKE IT.  IT REALLY IS A HEAVENLY PARADISE ON EARTH.  AGAIN, ANOTHER ENDLESS ANSWER THAT YOU'LL HAVE TO GET KNOW BY DOIN' LIFE WITH ME.

"SPREAD ALOHA, NOT YOUR LEGS.

BUT LEGS TOO IF THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE INTO."

 

WHAT ARE YOUR GO-TO DANCE MOVES?

LIFE IS ABOUT ENDLESS BODYROLLS.  I WILL WIN AT A BODYROLL COMPETITION.  I'VE BEEN BODYROLLING, TITTYSHAKING, AND MOONWALKING OUT OF THE WOMB.  FREESTYLE IS NUMERO UNO.

 

CAN YOU PUT US ON TO ANY MUSIC, ART, oR MUSES YOU'RE UP ON?

THERE'S MANY OLD AND NEW TO EVEN MENTION.  RAT MEOW IT'S "SOFTCORE" AND "WHORECORE" BY LSDXOXO TO MONARX OF HAWAI'I.  QUIET KAOS WILL ALWAYS BE THE TRUEST OF STALLION UNICORN.  LAURYN HILL TO SASHAMARIE TO DONORMAAL TO WORKHOUSE.  I'VE BEEN STALKING HEAVY THE REVOLUTIONARYART COMING OUT OF OAXACA AND DALLAS CLAYTON.  THEY MAKE ME SO HAPPY.  ART FOR ME IS EVER EVOLVING.  AND THESE CATS GET IT.  AND NOW ONLY IS IT ABOUT EXPRESSING YOURSELF BUT IT'S ABOUT SENDING A MESSAGE.

SHIT'S ENDLESS.

 

WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN CLOTHING?

PIECES THAT I'LL WEAR OF COURSE.  PIECES THAT I CAN SEE MY FRIENDS WEARING SO I CAN GIVE IT TO THEM.  PIECES I'LL WEAR BASICALLY AND NOT BE AFRAID TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED IN OR BE IN A MUSIC VIDEO WEARING.  I CAN LOOK AT A SIMPLE ASS TOP AND SEE A DUMB ABOUT OF WAYS IT CAN BE WORN.  SAME THING GOES WITH A VERY INTRICATE PIECE.  IT'S LIKE WHEN YOU'RE MIXING INTO THE NEXT SONG AND YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT ALL THE DIFFRENT SONGS AND WAYS YOU CAN MIX IT.

I TRY TO LOOK AT EVERYTHING INDIVIDUALLY THEN COLLECTIVELY.  TRANSCEND EVERYTHING.

 

WHAT ARE YOUR CURRENT PROJECTIONS?

IT'S INFINITE.

QUIT MY FUCKING JOB AKA MY FAKE PASSION SO I CAN PURSUE ALL MY TRUE PASSIONS BUT STILL BE ABLE TO MAKE RENT AND ALL THAT ADULT BS.  CURRENTLY TRYINGTO DO BOTH AND ONE DAY HAVE MY PASSION BE MY FULL TIME GIG OF LOVE.

I'M DONE WITH SCHOOL.  TRIED GOIN' BACK MANY TIMES.  I'M COLLEGE EDUCATED BUT NEVER GRADUATED.

I'VE BEEN CREATING.  SKETCHING, MIXING, COOKING, DREAMING, FLOATING, CRYING.  WRITING DOWN ALL IDEAS SO I DON'T FORGET.  MY MIND AND EYES BE BLAZIN' WITH IDEAS.  I'LL BE PUTTING OUT ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING I LIKE AND MY HEART DESIRES UNDER PUNANI BY LANIE PUNANI.

I WANNA BE ABLE TO TRAVEL THE WORLD AND DO WHAT I LOVE, SHARING MY ALOHA.  BE MY OWN BOSS.  WAKE UP WHEN I WANT.

 

WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL TO NEXT?  WHAT'S ON YOUR RADAR?

FUCKING TRYING TO TAKE MY ASS BACK HOME FOR A VISIT.  HAWAIIAN AIRLINES SHOULD REALLY GIVE DISCOUNTS FOR KAMA'AINA LIVING AWAY.  FARE IS RIDICULOUS AND ALL I GET ARE PEANUTS AND ONE CARRY ON?  POOR KID ON THE COME UP.  

REAL THO, I'M TRYING TO GO EVERY-MOTHERLOVING-WHERE!  DEFINITELY TRAVELING ONCE REYNA'S DONE WITH SCHOOL.  I'LL QUIT MY JOB FOR MYSELF AND HER JUST SO WE CAN TRAVEL THE WORLD FOR A YEAR OR TWO.  EVERYDAY IS OUR HONEYMOON.

OR JUST TAKE ME TO ANOTHER PLANET.  

"SEE YA IN BERMUDA!"

 

WHAT IS YOUR MAGIC?

I LOVE YOU.

 

 YOU LOVE ICE? THIS IS A QUESTION.

FOR BREAKFAST LUNCH AND DINNER.

 

AND LASTLY, WHAT DOES HAVING A PUNANI MEAN TO YOU?

THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE BEAUTIFUL, AND THE UGLY.  MOTHERLOVING EVERYTHING.  360.

WHEN PEOPLE HEAR OR SAY PUNANI, THEY EITHER LAUGH, DON'T KNOW WHAT IT MEANS, THINK THEY KNOW BUT AREN'T SURE, THINK ITS TABOO, UNPROFESSIONAL, OR ARE OFFENDED.  HAVING A PUNANI MEANS INFINITY, STRENGTH, HAPPINESS, STRUGGLE, COURAGE, FEARLESS, ACCEPTING, FORGIVING, FUCKING FEELINGS, CRAMPS, BEAUTY, GENEROSITY, SELFLESS, SELFISH, SHELL FISH, EMPOWERMENT, JUSTICE, LILIHA BAKERY CHANTILLY PUFFS AND BUTTER ROLLS.  

IT'S EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING.  FOREVER TRANSCENDING EVERY SECOND MINUTE HOUR OF EVERY DAY.  IT'S LIFE.

LOVE THY PUNANI

SPF 1 HUNNA

WEATHER IS SWEET

LOCATION: O'AHU, HAWAI'I

FORGET ABOUT LAYERING ON HEAVY CHEMICALS AND CONSIDER A MORE NATURAL SELECTION OF NON-TOXIC SPF.  MY SENSITIVE SKIN IS EASILY IRRITATED BY MOST SKIN CARE INGREDIENTS AND AT ONE POINT I REMEMBER SKIPPING OUT ON SUNSCREEN BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS DOING MORE HARM THAN GOOD... AND IT WAS.

SINCE THEN, I'VE INCORPORATED NATURAL PRODUCTS AND ESSENTIAL OILS IN MY SKIN CARE REGIMEN TO COMBAT AGAINST EXCESS SUN EXPOSURE.  THESE OILS ARE PACKED WITH ANTIOXIDANTS AND VITAMINS THAT PREP AND AID IN MOISTURIZING SUN DRENCHED SKIN.

  • AVOCADO OIL
  • MACADAMIA OIL
  • ALMOND OIL
  • JOJOBA OIL
  • COCONUT OIL
  • SHEA BUTTER 

RAW SHEA BUTTER IS THE BEST MOISTURIZER I'VE USED ON MY SKIN... SERIOUSLY.  COCONUT OIL MELTS QUICKLY AND SMOOTHES NICELY BUT SHEA BUTTER HAS UNIQUE MOISTURIZING AND HEALING PROPERTIES THAT I CAN SEE AND FEEL.  I APPLY A GENEROUS AMOUNT OF RAW SHEA BUTTER BEFORE AND AFTER SUN FOR PROPER MOISTURE AND TO LOCK IN MY TAN.

UNLIKE MOST SUNSCREENS, THESE OILS HAVE LOW SPF'S RANGING FROM 4-1O WHICH MEAN MORE REAPPLYING AND MONITORING YOUR TIME IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT.  AND DON'T FORGET TO HYDRATE! A RECOMMENDED 4+ CUPS EVERY HOUR TO MAKE SURE YOU'RE BROWNING, NOT FRYING, FA'REAL THO.
