Let’s talk about this outfit.
I got this amazing top in the mail from Backroom, also known as BKRM. I was so happy because I have been wanting this Paint it Red number forever! I even posted it on my Instagram account a few months ago so I felt truly lucky to receive it a few days ago. By introducing a mix of rare labels and contemporary styles from both street level and luxury categories, BKRM provides an unconventionally modern product selection to reflect current and forthcoming aesthetics catering to both genders, in addition to a straightforward shopping experience with complimentary shipping worldwide. This shirt made it to me within a week and it was sent from the otherside of the world! It’s not very often that happens. What I love about BKRM is that they offer high-end brands like YSL and more affordable brands all in one space. They cater to the urban fashionistas but there is something to be found for everyone! See for yourself.
I wish I looked a bit happier for my shoot today but as you can see from my shots I am not in the lightest of moods. Perhaps the rain in this shoot is ironically reflective of that. I don’t like to share too much on the blog because I think sometimes things need to be left at home. However, I wanted to share this because this person was one of the most influential people in my life and she deserves to be recognized by all. This person is my grandmother who passed away yesterday.
She and I shared a bond like no one else except for my sister. We would talk to each other every week, sometimes more than once a week just for the sake of talking. I shared everything with her, cried with her, laughed with her and she gave the best hugs and kisses in the world. Right on the lips from the age of 2 to now! There was never anyone so stubborn as my Grandmother and I am sure that’s where I get it from. She always stood up for everything she believed in and loved without fear. She was outgoing, extremely funny and had the biggest heart of anyone I know. She loved wholeheartedly with no strings attached. She was fearless and she fought hard to the very end.
For she is clothed in strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future – Proverbs 31:25

I’d like to send out a little thank you to the Backroom team and to Negin Mirsalehi for the inspiration for this post. Just love her!
