Bright colors, brilliant jewels, and high quality textiles, are no stranger to this Detroit native’s wardrobe. Jade exudes both flamboyance and extravagance justifying them as two major determinants to her style. Jade says “When I get dressed I dress to be seen, PERIOD”. She later says “I keep myself standing out in the crowd on a consistency with my DOPE ATTIRE because this is what I do”, and for that reason Ooh La La chose her as our Friday Fly Philosophy feature.
Jade describes her Fly Philosophy as beyond what her eye can see. When she go shopping she naturally pick items seen in magazines, or ones that haven’t been seen at all for that matter. She doesn’t discriminate in designers or the price region when it comes to purchasing a hot item. This show-stopper is also a budget-buster. She says “I also love the cheap stores as I prefer to call them as well.” Jade doesn’t mind sharing the prices for a dope cop especially if it was a steal. She even give numerous reviews on items she purchased on-line.
