As you may know by now, I launched my online boutique Hazed and for the past month it’s been my main focus. I spend majority of my free time working on my boutique, so much I put blogging on the back burner. I got into the mind set of designing a web site and curating merchandise for my boutique that would appeal to everyone, and kinda lost my creativity. So I made a decision to not to sell pieces that were safe and easy, but to sell pieces that would not necessarily be a go to for most but would be great additions to anyone’s wardrobe and to use my blog as a platform to show how to style the pieces in your everyday life(you know two birds one stone). *side note have you guys noticed my new found love of crop tops? Keep an eye out for them on @shophazed*
This has been a long time coming, a couple of years back when I first started my blog I also was in the beginning stages of starting a online clothing boutique. Unfortunately the job that I had at the time was extremely stressful and It was causing me to become unhappy with my life. I had no time for friends or family and the people I did see weren’t people with any true substance. Except for a couple that to this day I still communicate with through Instagram, but anyway back to the subject at hand. One morning without even thinking I quit my job and this quickly put a halt on me starting my business. It took me a few months to find a new job and once I did the motivation to start my business was lost. Now fast forward two years later while sitting at home on a Friday night watching TV, I thought to myself once again am I truly happy at this current point in life and the answer was no. So I grabbed my phone and started an Instagram page,then an email address,then a square space and then BOOM! Hazed was born. My company Hazed which is named after one of my all-time favorite Jimi Hendrix songs purple haze.The feeling the song gives me, wanting to dance around carelessly, is the same felling I want to portray in the clothing I sell. For now there’s only a few pieces up on the site but over the next few months I plan on being fully stocked.
I’m excited for this new chapter my life where I can have full financial and creative control. Also enjoy waking up and doing what I do truly love shopping but with a purpose. But don’t worry this won’t take away from my regular blog post ,this just means you are going to see a lot more of me. The dress I’m wearing in this post is on my site!!! , Head over and check out what I have created at www.shophazed.com .
As long as can remember, I’ve had a feeling that I’ve was born in the wrong decade and missed the golden age of the 70s. I am completely in love with the disco era, from the music to the fashion. One of all time favorite artist is the legendary Jimi Hendrix, yes ladies and gentlemen Jimi. He has been setting my sole on fire since I was 15 and you through I didn’t realize it tell later in life as so my fashion sense.Who doesn’t love a high waisted long wide leg pant ?!? It makes you look taller then life. 70s influence can be seen in all of my everyday looks, whether it’s a high waist jeans,band T-shirts or big glam hair. What did decade do you identify with? And where do you grab your style influence from?
As spring approaches and South Florida’s weather gets back to normal ( so tired of the fake winter we’ve been having for the past few months), I’m staring to incorporate bold colors and patterns into my daily wardrobe. I don’t know if it was the time off or my trip to Medellín, but I’ve definitely been inspired to wear idgf outfits. I feel like in the past I was afraid to wear outfits that were to outside the box in fear that I would get those “wtf was she thinking” stares, but now I could careless. The bolder, the brighter, the better, because honestly #icantkillmyself2018. In other was I’m not going to stump my creativity in the sake of the Florida “norm”.
At the beginning of the year I set a few goals for myself, (wouldn’t call them resolutions, mainly because those never really stick). The goals I set for myself were, to travel more internationally, start something I’ve been wanting to do for 3 years now( more info on this coming soon), read more books, and be less petty( this is the hardest one of all lol). I’m happy to say as we come to the close of the second month in 2018, side note* (can you believe one that it’s 2018?!? and two that we’re almost three months in ?!? 🤔). Back to what I was saying… now as February comes to a close, I’ve marked 2 things off the goal list. Back in the early part of January, a friend of mine mentioned they were going to Medellín,Colombia for a few days and asked if I wanted to come along. Now if this was last year I would have found every excuse why I couldn’t or shouldn’t go, but this time without thinking I said yes. I can truly say it was the best decision I’ve made, and would love to visit this magical city again but I’ve been bit by the travel bug and I have a few more countries I would like to visit before heading back for a round two. Make sure to follow me on instagram @ohyeahkendra ( shame on you if you not… I’m judging you so hard!) that way you can keep up with my up coming travel adventures and crazy/entertaining every day life.The photos in this post,are photos I took while visiting a neighborhood located in the hills of Medellín, which has become a tourist destination, you can walk though the neighborhood to reach the top of the hill and see majority of Medellín. Throughout the path to the top residents have setup store fronts and shops where visitors can purchase food,water,and souvenirs. This way the money goes directly to the people and not to the government( honest they got enough of my money). I definitely recommend visiting Medellín at least once in your life but just make sure you brush up on you Spanish.
Writers block has definitely gotten the best of me this past week. I took these photos on Sunday with every intention to post them on Monday (with some sort of witty title) and interesting explanation of my deep love for camou and how I might own way to much of it, especially for someone who has no interest in hunting. But when it came down for me to sit down and put words to paper aka my iPad Pro nothing came out. I tried writing while at work on break (of course this was a bad idea I definitely set myself up for failure there) , when I was at home doing nothing and trying to decide if I wanted to re watch stranger things for the second time since there are no new shows on Netflix worth binge watching (because I’ve basic watched it all). Still at the end nothing, yup nothing came to mind so instead I’ll tell you the history behind this jacket. A few months back after leaving brunch with two of my amazing friends Arielle and Tony, we did what any person does that’s had way to many brunch drinks, we went to Zara to look around and waste time before saying good bye to each for the day and head home. Right when we about to leave the store I came across this jacket stuck way behind several other items jammed in on the rack. Arielle and Tony both thought the jacket definitely looked like something you would see on a cast member of The Real Housewives of (INSERT CITY HERE). So naturally I needed it because 1 I’m an over the top individual and 2… well there is no 2 just 1, but the line for the fitting room way just way to long for me to try it on. The next best thing for me to do was to just order thought the zara app, and yes I have the Zara app don’t judge me because this is a judge free zone; but right as I was about to order it my phone dies. Once I made it home and my phone had charged enough for it to turn back one, and I went to order the jacket my size had sold out, at the moment it felt like the universe was tell me not to buy the jacket. Over the course of the next few weeks I keep find myself thinking about the jacket, all the ways I could style it and where I would wear it. Well as you can tell from today’s post I bought it, and since then I’ve worn it so many different ways. I’ve even worn it to a doctors appointment and now that I think of it I might have been a tad bit over dressed, but never the less I’m happy I eventually purchased the jacket and I plan on continuing to wear it places, were it’s inappropriate because that the kinda person I am.
