CHERISH







     Summer is almost to a close and I've been reflecting a lot lately on life during these long, summer days. Its crazy how we spend our lives praying and wanting something so bad, and then when we finally get it, were so use to it, we've taken it for granted and forget all about how we use to want it so bad.  I've realized this about myself, even. Were all human and we naturally take things for granted. There are others across the globe who would kill to have the lifestyles we have and when I mention that I don't mean that you have to be well off. 
     Life's experiences, what you have, cherish it. Im learning to appreciate the journey because in the end, we always look back and say to ourselves "It wasn't that bad." Realizing that today in this very moment that everything will be alright. If you are reading this you have SO MUCH to be thankful for. Someone didn't wake up this morning. Someone is in the hospital right now fighting for their life! I know it gets super frustrating not being somewhere in life that you want to be but its all about progress and timing. We have to remember to be patient, do the work, and the rest will fall in place. "It does not matter how slow you go, so long as you don't stop." -Confusius

Thanks for reading and I hope to see you on the next post.

#TheVernonVlog YouTube



Recently I've decided to be more involved on YouTube which includes vlogs, comedy sketches, style videos and more. Here is my second vlog. I show you a typical (or not so typical) week for me in preparing for my outfit of the week posts for the blog. Kinda like a behind the scenes of me producing the content for the site. So far, I've posted a look every week for the past 20 weeks. In this video, I fall a tad bit behind, but still deliver! Be sure to check it out & subscribe to my channel,

Ready for Fall 2015







I don't know about you guys but Im ready for Fall! Jackets and blazers are my favorite clothing items and during the summer I can't rock these pieces too much, because its super hot out. Im excited to finally wear the pants I made in todays shoot. They took me only a few hours to make. Im thinking about making some shorts also. The jacket I've had a while which is from Zara. Hope you enjoy and I'll see you on the next post.

Todays post comes to you straight from my iPhone cam. I decided to be very laid back today with production haha. I got a chance to meet up with another blogger by the name of Sasha Frank here in L.A. After running into each other at multiple fashion events we finally got a chance to meet and get to know each other more. She's a singer/songwriter as well, be sure to check her out. (Sashafrank.com) I love her vintage style, its fresh and something you don't see everyday. Have a great weekend and I'll see you guys on the next post!

Retro X Denim






Can you believe August is already here? These summer days are flying by! This is my first time rocking a kind of funky, retro piece. Reminds me of something from the 90's. I loved that decade so I'll take it. I wanted to focus in more on detail, composition and contrast with this post. Hope I did a little bit of justice. I usually like to mix and mingle pieces from different places. Mixing different pieces from thrift shops with something new or something I've owned forever with something thrifted or something I've owned forever with something new. These past two posts have been full outfits from Forever 21 Men. What do you like to mix and mingle most in what you wear? Hope you all have a great weekend and I'll see you on the next post!

OVERSIZED








This weeks look is one of my favorites. Anyone who knows me, knows I love simplicity with a hint of contrast. I've never really been into the oversized trend and this is my first time rocking an oversized item. I must say, I like it. Its comfortable, you get major air when its hot out and it somehow creates a balance that makes sense. I also never really accessorize much and here I am doing so. I don't know, I just don't have a habit of considering accessories when I go out and shop. I definitely dig my necklace and ring here. Everything you see here is from Forever 21 Men. See you on the next post.
