006: young & grown

to be played at: Balmain or Isabel Marant

for the girl: who is young & grown

mood: This playlist is dedicated to my bestest – my constant influence, inspiration, and support. I focused on songs that tell the story of a young & grown girl on the pursuit to happiness. I included non-rap covers of rap songs – it is the perfect representation of young & grown – young/sweet on the surface; grown/tough underneath. The end result is a playlist that is fit for the trendsetting-tough chics seen on the Balmain runways or the enviable-nonchalant girls seen on the Isabel Marant runways.

songs that didn’t make the cut, sadly: Let Me Blow Ya Mind – Eve & Gwen Stefani, Rocket Scientist – Teddybears

“I’ve never known a girl like you before”-  you are a “high-flying day-dream believer in love” – “don’t you ever come down.”
