Renaldo’s Halloween Party

Good Afternoon.. I’m here in the house.. hungover, lazy and hungry! Yesterday I spent the whole day in the house relaxing and on the phone running my mouth. One of my best friends Renaldo had a Halloween Party last night at his place. I’m not a fan of Halloween. I hate the idea of spending money on a silly costume for one night and I could have taken that money to buy a real outfit! I was contemplating on going, but Renaldo is the type of friend that will be pissed if I didn’t show up. So I dressed up as ME .. A STYLIST! LOL I posted some photos from the party below and a photo of these headpieces that inspired me to use on a shoot.

The whole crew was there. We had a blast! Renaldo really went all out!!  After the party, Sebastian and I decided to go to Secrets for a quick minute. We got there mad late and stayed for only 45 minutes. Now this Hurricane Sandy is supposed to hit NYC today and tomorrow. The MTA System is shutting down ALL Train service at 7pm. Really?!? I feel like they are overreacting. Maybe I have this mindset because I’m from South Carolina and I’m used to hurricanes. The last time NYC did this nothing happened, but a lot of rain. Nevertheless, Yall be safe and watch Snapped Marathon today or The First 48 Marathon! I love that shit!

End of the Day.. Kendrell styling Dawn Richard

Wassup Yall, I’m extremely tired… Literally.. Kelly Price TIRED!! I’m just getting in from a long day. Today I did a cover shoot for Dawn Richard. The shoot was amazing. She was very nice and allowed me to use her to make my vision come to life. My theme was Chanel Girl In Brooklyn loves Versace. I can’t wait until the images are released to show you. Thanks to my assistant Marcelle.. He gets me and he’s super creative. He balances me out and brings so much to the table. I’m trying to tell yall we turned it up today! I’m so tired .. I think I already said that! LOL Sebastian wants me to go out with him tonight, but I don’t know. I left one of the pieces for the shoot at home and Marcelle came back to get it for me. Then he came back and had to leave the shoot early. So the shoot was all the way in Soho and I live in harlem. I came all the way home and realized that this boy didn’t give me my house keys back .. so I had to go back downtown to get them and come back home! A MESS! Look below to see a pic of Dawn and I on set today acting silly. I’m so goofy.. SUPER THANKS TO Sebastian, Gabriel and Rae.

Friday Photo Shoot with Dawn Richard

Wassup Yall.. Man I apologize, but the past few days was crazy. Right after K.Michelle left I got a call to do the cover of this new magazine of Dawn Richard.  Dawn was in Danity Kane and Diddy Dirty Money. I was contemplating on doing the shoot cause I found out just a day in advance, but that’s part of the business. So, I’m doing it today cause Its a new editorial piece to my book and I can build relationships. The inspiration behind my shoot is “BAD BITCH” meaning its dark, leather and just on some dope shit that I can’t explained. I thank my best friend Sebastian for loaning me a piece for my shoot. Actually one of Sebastian pieces (pieces means accessories or something thats a hot item in your wardrobe) convinced me to say YES. My assistant Marcelle will be with me today too. I saw my friend Darius yesterday, it was good to see him. He played my assistant yesterday. Thank YOU DARIUS! Okay.. Im going to hit yall later cause I have to go to the barbershop and the dentist before my shoot at 2:30. Have a great day! HUSTLE HARD!

Kendrell GET UP!!

Hey wassup yall… I’m here in the bed.. I’m starving!! Yesterday was amazing. K.Michelle loved the options that I had for her Green Screen Looks for Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 2. I gave her pieces that gave drama! LOL  I’m excited to see which look VH1 picks. After the fitting we went to Dinner at QI (this Thai restaurant on 43 and 8th ave) It was nice. Then our ratchetness started we went across the street to BBQ’s in Times Square for some drinks! It was a fun time. K.Michelle wore this sweatshirt that I got her from Raunchy Nation that caused a scene on the street, twitter and instagram. Look at the picture below…

Now today I have to do the part of my job I hate RETURNS! Then,  I have to go send my lil brother some money. He never asks for anything, except clothes.. and I feel like I want to be there to help him out. My family is important to me. So.. What yall doing??

K.Michelle Fitting Tuesday

Good Morning Yall,  How’s everything going? I hope all is well. I told yall that the past 2 days were going to be crazy! I was prepping K.Michelle wardrobe for season 2 of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. I got a call from her on Friday morning saying.. ” change of plans I’m going to be in NYC on Tuesday just for that day and leave out on Wednesday Morning So I need to have options for Green Screen Looks!” So, I’m kinda like gagging cause in a stylists world weekends are dead days. Meaning All showrooms are closed and the studio service departments in stores are only open MON -FRI so I’m like that gives me a day to work. Well, Thank God I have contacts. This is very important if you’re trying to be a stylist. Your rolodex is like the BIBLE. I suggest you save every number and email you get. You never know when you may need it. So, back to the subject.. I researched many designers in NYC and surrounding areas on social media and the Internet. I reached out to them and I had them come to my apartment or I traveled to their space. I got a lot of nice pieces. I’m kind of a perfectionist so if things are not how I imagine them in my mind I’ll tend to analyze it. So much that I had a nightmare the other night about what would I do if I didn’t have enough clothes for my fitting.

Sunday we went to Church and saw my sister Pietrina there. Then we all went to the Standard Hotel to a pop up designer show where I had an appointment to see a collection. I made a lot of good contacts. One of the designers I pulled from him the next day for my fitting today. Then we had brunch at The Standard and we didn’t like the food for brunch, but the dinner is good there. I went to the Jeweler as well to pick up my diamonds for K.Michelle. I went off. The pieces are so sick!  Fast Forward to today I’m in the house this morning waiting on packages for my fitting that I had shipped to me. My girl Chan made a nice peplum top for K.Michelle which I love. Well, I hope her flight gets here soon so we can see what will work for the green screen.. Maybe I”’ try to find some ME time in the midst of this to hit the gym.

Crazy Saturday!

Wassup My Friends…

How yall’ been doing? I hope all is good in your world. I’m here in the house.. just getting in from Tameka’s Birthday Brunch at Hudson River Cafe. I like the brunch there.. Unlimited Mimosas, Good portion of food for only $25. I can dig it. I went to the gym this morning !!  YAY!! So, I apologize for being missing in action for a couple of days..excuse any typos cause I was drinking .. okay.. okay… So, I had my meeting with the agency it went very well. He explained to me that he wanted to see me do some stories. Stories means he wasnts me to come up with different concepts and do a photo shoot of my concept meaning story and bring it to life. I agree this is what I need to do. I’ve been working so much with celebrity type jobs that I now need to show the depth of my creative vision in a story photo shoot. If you don’t get what I mean by story it means like a EDITORIAL shoot that you see in all high fashion magazines. So, I have some ideas and got a team together to make this happen. Today I went to my girlfriend Tameka’s Birthday Brunch. It was nice. I loved that her mom was there. Family is everything…

 

Now to the DRAMA!!  sighs…  I’m prepping for K.Michelle to shoot for Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 2. Season is going to start taping next week and we are getting her green screen looks ready. Green Screen is the interview shot where she speaks to the camera.. like last season I had her in the Katerlina Corsett. I’m prepping for that and my deadline is Monday night. I see K.Michelle here in NYC on Tuesday so I’m working my ass off!! In the next 30 minutes I have a designer coming over so I can choose some tops out of a few collections.  This is the part of  a stylist job that never ends.. I’m kinda tipsy but I still need to work and get the job done!! I want to make her look beautiful as always ut more of a clean beauty with a sense of the urban girl. Anthony is at rehearsals for his new broadway show PIPPIN. We stay busy!! I hope yall are okay.. I’l hit yall later..Kendrell has work to do!! Oh, Wait .. What yall think of BRandy’s album .. I love Without YOU and Let ME go!!

Stylist Kendrell..K.Michelle, Lauriana Mae & More

Wassup Yall.. what’s going on? I’m here in the house talking to Anthony and about to do some work. I have my meeting tomorrow morning at 8:30 am with one of the agencies that contacted me. I have to go there and let them review my portfolio and see if I’d be a fit with the agency. I’m still kind of 50/50 on what I want to do. When you sign with an agency it has its perks and downs just like anything. I hope everything goes well. Say a prayer for me. Yesterday, I went to Pnina Tornai Fashion show which was amazing. It felt good being Front Row and a little intimidating to be one of the youngest and the only black male in the room.  Tomorrow I’m going to Mark Zunino Fashion Show at 4pm. I’m going to bring one of my best friends Sebastian with me.

 

I posted on Twitter and Facebook tonight that I’m looking for Womenswear Designers for RTW, Accessories and Shoes. The next season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta and I’m looking for the hottest of the hottest pieces for K.Michelle. If you are a designer or know of a dope designer thats new and fresh please email me or post it on here. For all my Dancing With The Stars fans check out Lauriana Mae song “Beat It Like A Drum” on tonights premiere episode at 8pm. Tonight the Presidential Debate comes on .. GO OBAMA!

NEW CLIENT ALERT!! PACK YOUR BAGS KENDRELL..

Hello Fashionistas,

How are yall’ feeling this morning? I hope yall alright. So, Remember the other day I told yall that I have a meeting with a Broadway actress? Well, the meeting never happened, but I sent over a packet of my vision of her transformation. She loved it! She checked out my site and loved it! I’m excited becuase this will give me the opportunity to step her brand beyond Broadway especially on the TONY Awards Red Carpet. So we are going to meet in the next couple of weeks to get started and to iron out the details. POW!! I will reveal her name to yall soon, but not until we sign the dotted line!! LOL Last night, K.Michelle called me and we discussed her coming here in the next weeks to start shopping for Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 2. We are going for a clean classy look. So she said ” I’m going to come there with an empty suitcase and we can fill it with clothes!” Fine with me.  I’m probably going to go to Atlanta at the end of the month when she starts to film. Please say a prayer for my client and good friend Lauriana Mae. Thank You

Good News.. Our Sylvester show is going on tour! First stop is Washington, DC. We are super excited. This all began with a conversation with Anthony and I. Some producers told us NO about producing the show. So we created and did EVERYTHING on our own. We had 2 sold out shows in NYC. Now we are packing our bags and hitting the road. Teamwork Makes The Dreamwork! It feels good to be doing all of this too with the one I love. Well, if you’re following me on Facebook and Instagram you would see that I’ve been back in the gym hard and I’m on a NO CARBS DIET! SUCKS! Heres a photo of me at the gym and this bird food that I hate! I’m a southern boy!I’m about to cook breakfast.  Yall, hit me up and let me know whats on your mind.. Make today a productive day…LOVE YA

Good Morning

Wassup Yall,  Sorry I didn’t get a chance to post anyhting the last few days. I’ve been a lil’ busy. So let me update yall. GOOD NEWS!! A really good agency contacted me! I have a meeting with them next week. Their really good, but my only concern is that they have too many stylists already and I don’t want to have to fight for jobs within my own home. You feel me? Then, I started this NO CARBS Diet. This is making me so moody and crancky. I’m a southern boy and I like to eat carbs, fried food etc. I’ll get through it. The things we do for our image! I got Brandy’s New album early from the record label. I love it, but it is a little over produced. Good Album though…  Last night we watched the Vice Presidential Debate.. WOW BIDEN reminds me of myself in a debate. He did an amazing job.

Today I have a meeting, but first I’m about to head to the gym. Oh, I got some more good news.. I have another meeting with a leading Broadway Actress. She’s young, great body and I will be able to transform her into a Hollywood Star on the carpet. I’ll reveal her name after I have my meeting and its a GO! Yall have a productive day!

Let The Church Say Amen..

Wassup Yall.. It’s Sunday! This is the first Sunday in a month and a half that I missed church. Honestly, I was tired and I wanted to relax a little. Well, I thought I was going to relax, but I forgot that today Summit is coming over and so is Anthony’s friend. So, that means I’m cooking Sunday Dinner. I like to cook and entertain with positive people that don’t bring drama. 

 

On the menu i’m making baked mac and cheese, fried chicken (remember i seasoned it yesterday), greens and potatoes and fried rice. SO UNHEALTHY!! I got to have a cheat day. Also, today is one 2 of my best friends birthday.. Sebastian and Pietrina! I love them so much! Sebastian went on holiday for his Birthday and he’s getting his life! I wish I was there. I spoke to my moma and my granny today. Well, let me get back to this cooking.. Hope yall having a great Sunday!

It’s Saturday..

Wassup Yall, What yall doing? I just got back in the house from the gym. Today is my second day back in the gym. I took 3 months off because I was so busy with work. Later this afternoon, I’m going to do some research on a few new clients. I want to work with a few actors/actresses. I think this would be a good step in my career. I’m not sure who I want to style as of yet, but if yall have any ideas let me know. Comment below and I’ll check them out. Last night, Anthony and I went to Dinner with some investors for our Sylvester show. We are planning take the show on tour next year starting in the spring. That’s going to be a BIG Thing. Tyler Perry is my inspiration for this project. So for the rest of my day I’m going to clean and season this chicken!! We’re having one of my best friends over tomorrow Summit and one of Anthony’s friends. I’m gonna cook a big southern Sunday dinner. (that I shouldn’t be eating) Well, I look forward to hear yall suggestions on actors/actresses. Have a relaxing day!

Today Is My Lil Brother Birthday!!

Good Morning Yall,

Today is My Lil Bro and only Brother Birthday Desmond! He’s 21 ! So I have to get him something that 21 years old like Clothes or  Money!  I love him we are so opposite. I’m 5’9 160 lbs 30 waist and he’s 6″3 200 lbs and whatever waist! I don’t see him as much cause i’m in NYC and He’s down south but I miss him! I’m up early trying to get back on track. Anyone that knows me knows that I stay in shape. I usually work out like 5 times a week, but I’ve been sooo slipping. I haven’t been like in 3 months and that ain’t hot! So, I’m starting back today! I don’t really have that many stylists friends, but my best friend Latoya. I have many associates, but I just got off the phone with my fellow stylist Jasper Rose. I met Jasper actually on Twitter and we were trying to meet each other numerous of times, but we kept missing one another. We finally met in NYC at a fashion show. He’s always been real and no drama which is cool in my book. So remember I told yall i submitted some emails to agencies. Well, I’m still waiting. Today, I’m going to start looking through my magazines and make a inspiration board, then start trying to pair outfits together for K.Michelle for Love & Hip Hop Season 2. We discussed that she wants to be on some other shit. Meaning not doing too much.. That’s the way I like it. Hair Done, Skin Flawless, Nice Bag, Hot Shoes, Banging Accessories and that’s it!! We wanna go for a classy urban woman.

I posted a photo of an example of a list that my clients get if i’m not able to be with them. This list is detailed so they will know how to put together the outfit without me being there.

Yesterday, I told yall I was going to the dentist right..That was a waste of time cause I have to go back on the 18th. To get the appointment yesterday I told the receptionist that I had an emergency with my back tooth right, so I thought they would do everything for me when I got there (teeth cleaning, xrays etc) Then, the dentist said today we only going to look at the one tooth that has pain you must come back for everything else! They Turned ME!! LOL

Personal & Business Day

Good Morning Yall,

I woke up this morning on the grind. I started working immediately. I’m in the mood today to just THROW IT OUT THERE. Meaning.. i’m just about to put a lot of shit out there and see what happens. I’ve been working for myself for the past years and I’ve been doing pretty good for myself. Although, at times I wish I had an agent, which is what I started resourcing this morning. If I decided to go with an agency, It has to be a perfect fit that will allow me to grow. So i’m here sending some emails and let’s see what happens. I have a dentist appointment at 11:30 and meeting my good friend Rio at 1pm. I was supposed to go to the gym. This week is a slow week for me styling, but hey I did just put on a big show in NYC on Sunday so I need a little break. As I mentioned to yall yesterday, even though i’m not on a shoot i’m still putting in work! Last night Anthony and I ordered Dominos new Pan Pizza its Good!! I kid you not, they stole Pizza Hut’s Pan recipe cause its the same damn thing!! We watched the presidential debate. Who are yall for? Romney or Obama?  Aight I gotta go get my teeth clean.  Smile!
