Babati // Tanzania 2014


Babati // Tanzania 2014


I’m Sabla`, pronounced (suh-blay) and Im a 17 year old Fashion Design student in my senior year of High School.  I work at American Apparel just to add some extra money to my pocket but more importantly I’m an aspiring designer, blogger, artist, and analyzer lol. The look I put together is just a combination of all my top favorite kind of things to wear and I wanted to “feminize” my look up a bit because I’ve been dressing very masculine lately. The gold skirt I’m wearing is actually a dress I made into a skirt and I wore it high waisted because I feel high waisted items look best on me due to my thin frame, plus I just simply like it. Gold is the only metallic accent I wear and probably will ever wear. My wide brim hat and denim shirt is the masculine touch of the whole look, I ‘m a sucker for collars and beaded jewelry. Not much of a fan of bandeaus so it kind of shocks me that I even threw one on for this look and actually liked it. 

  1. On creating  sablagoldensense: My initial goal for my blog sablagoldensense.blogspot.com was for it to be a fashion blog because around the time I was a huge reader of many fashion bloggers such as Karen of www.wheredidugetthat.com, and Travis Gumbs & Joshua Kissi of www.StreetEtiquette.com. But over time as GoldenSense progressed as well as I, I realized I’m not just about Fashion, I’m about music, poetry, art, etc also. So, that’s what I wanted to showcase and that’s exactly what I began to do.
  2. Who inspired your style most in 2011? Menswear inspired my style in 2011 but not more than my own personal creativity and taste. I don’t want to wear something that makes someone say “this look like something such & such would wear,” I want it to be like “This look like something Sabla` would wear.”
  3. Describe your personal style? Ahh! This question has always been a tough one for me. I guess I will describe my style as eclectic, comfortable, creative, and a bit obnoxious on occasions.
  4. Favorite designers? My favorite designers are Carly Cushnie & Michelle Ochs of Cushnie Et Ochs and of course Alexander McQueen because he was more than a designer, he was an artistic GENIUS. The stuff he came up with was beyond spectacular and breath taking.
  5. Style Icons? Solange Knowles, Erykah Badu, and Janelle Monae
  6. Favorite/Least Favorite current Fashion Trend? I Love the whole ombre & color blocking trend. I dislike the patriotic trend of sporting the American flag everywhere especially if you’re not even patriotic.
  7. If you could what trend from the last 2 decades would you like to bring back? Well, I hate everything that was trending in the early 2000’s but the 90’s I feel everything amazing has been brought back or have been attempted to be brought back. I’m going to get a bit crazy and say reeboks, I want to see them make a comeback again and how they will throw their brand mainstream again. Maybe they should partner up with Jeremy Scott.
  8. Does your everyday life play a role in the way you dress? Yes it does. It goes with how I’m feeling that day or how much time I have. Plus going to a very creative school I can get away with some “obnoxious” looks without being patronized about it.
  9. Besides blogging and school, do you have any other projects you are working on? It may not be considered a project but I’m an athlete, Im captain of the Softball & Track Team, and co-captain of the Volleyball Team. I’m focused on winning medals and plaques this year so I’m training hard. But to get back to Fashion, I am working on a collection with a very good friend of mine.
  10. When you hear the term “BlackFashion” What comes to mind? I think of Black culture being conveyed through Style & Fashion in an influential, powerful way. When I hear Black I think of Power, when I hear Fashion I think of Influence. Black Fashion is Powerful Influence.
