Spring Snowfall :: Vintage Overcoat & Diesel Tote

image.jpg

I was asked recently why I decided to blog again after such a long break (8 months). After thinking about it I came up with a million and one reasons why I started back up. One of the reasons I do it is I found that blogging opened my world up to meeting so many interesting people that I otherwise never would've met. Blogging brought me a new confidence in myself, and even taught me to treat myself better.

The relationships I've foraged, the places I've been, the things I've seen and, the confidence I've gained is irreplaceable. As much work as it is writing articles all the time and subjecting myself to open criticism from the world I wouldn't trade it for anything.

As my first consistent article came to a close with Aprils relaunch I couldn't help but feel lucky to have my readers. Here's a shoot I did during the last spring snowfall in NYC here - I'm wearing ZARA fall 14 collection for my shirt and pants, the boots are timberland, and the over sized coat is vintage.

Thank you guys for supporting me and I can't wait to continue this crazy ride with you all!

Perceived Style

My name is Kevin Kamari Foreman but you can call me Kam for short. I am a New York based up and coming designer/stylist. The idea to begin blogging about fashion came about over a glass of wine with a designer friend of mine Kenny M. at the end of 2013. I was showing him some of the looks I had put together for my birthday when he turned to me and said - "you have a good eye... maybe you should try getting into fashion yourself." That's when Perceived Style was born. I have an obsession with classic American prep, bodybuilding, grooming, beauty products, and fashion in general so it was a good fit for me. Before my blogging days I used to be very depressed, very overweight, self conscious, and constantly self-defeating myself. Fashion helped pull me out of that. It taught me to live life, love the skin I'm in, and care about what's on it. So when I was creating the blog it was easy to decide what it would be about. The main focus of Perceived Style is to inspire people to be comfortable in their own skin, to smile more, and to care more about their overall appearance using tips and photos. Job History: I used to work at BFCU in bethpage long island. Now I am the creative directior/CEO for Perceived Style and a freelance menswear designer as of June 2014. Education: I went to Farmingdale College for 2 years then moved to Hofstra for the last 2 years. I presently am taking continuing classing in blogging, fashion writing, and design. Interests: Art, Fashion Shows, Menswear, Shopping, Photography, Womens Fashion, and Food/Movies.
