I don't wake up before—the house can fall apart, but I sleep for seven hours.

Louis Vuitton Fall / Winter 2012 The Sartorialist TwitterTwitter FacebookFacebook Feed RSSFeed RSS DIY Gold Tube Bracelets I have very vivid memories of walking into a bead store for the first time, almost 15 years ago, and being overwhelmed by the million and ten ideas that filled my mind.

Style Profile…Ni’ma Ford First job? It was actually at Abercrombie! I learned how to style outfits for customers. Thankfully, when my interest in that store died my passion for styling lived on.
