If you are the queen (or king) of the snooze button, then you already know that every now and then you over snooze and end up having to throw an outfit together. This look is a result of such an occasion. And to make matters worst, this was also the day that I was co-representing ShoeDazzle at a Pop Up Shop hosted by the W Hotel Downtown. This was so not the look that I was going for, but hey it still worked out. What I like most about this look are these distressed high waisted skinnies. Although they are a bit long for my short 5 foot frame, the comfort level is really good. In preparation for a night of standing, my shoe BFF was the 'Kala' bootie in Tan. Such a great pre-spring outfit.
Body Shaming is defined as inappropriate negative statements and attitudes towards another person's weight or size. Basically shaming someone for their body type. We all at some point in life have criticized ourself for something. After all we are our own worst critic. Comparing our flaws or imperfections to society's beauty standards or an IG model standards. So what makes me guilty of body shaming and who have I shamed? Me, Myself!!! I'm short, my legs are little, my stomach isn't the flattest and my boobs aren't the perkiest. There I said it... But did you also notice that I also said shamed, as in past tense. If there's one thing life has taught me.... ain't nobody perfect. Which is why I overlooked what I use to see as a problem and nailed this entire look from head to toe.
Hey guys! It's kinda been a while since I last posted. Although I've been pretty busy lately, but I still could have found time to check in with you. Now I'm going to be real transparent and tell you why...
I was going to quit. Yep, just give up! Why? Because I wasn't seeing the results that I'd hope to see. Living in a microwave society where patience is rarely a virtue, I thought that by now I would be this grandiose, extraordinary, bomb stylist/style blogger. But life has a way of teaching you a valuable lesson. NOTHING worthwhile comes without a price. (tweet this if you believe this)
After about a month of trying to give up and wallowing in self pity, I decided that enough was enough. I had to reaffirm myself that I was qualified and that I have what it takes and I will be successful in my craft. The same goes for you!!! You are the best at what you do.
I'd like to shout out my husband, Robert for always having my back even when he has no idea what I'm talking about. I'd like to thank my sister/friend Kisha Rose for talking some sense back into me. I'd also like to thank all the other females that I admire for paving the way for me. Last, I thank you, for stopping by my corner of the universe and listening to my mini soapbox speech.
Hey guys! Happy February; it's the month of loovvee. I've been thinking about a Valentine outfit, but then I remembered I wasn't going out for V-day. Therefore, I didn't need a look for this lovely day.
Now if I were going to be booed up at a restaurant with my main squeeze, I'd probably were maybe a blazer layered over an over-sized sweater with some distressed jeans and cute booties. I might even throw on a hat if I can get my hair to cooperate. What do you plan on wearing on the day of love?
In my last post (
) I talked about how faaabbbulousss my hair was. But I think today's style is my most favorite natural hair style since day one.
How's your first few days of the year going? I'm on the highest cloud.... Tomorrow my husband and I will be on a flight to Punta Cana, DR for the next few days. And I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!! The other exciting part to this trip is that I'm 95% packed. I always wait until the night before and then I'm sleepy the first day of my trip; but not this time. A sista is ready.
So if you've been following me on Instagram or Facebook, then you'll know that this look is sorta out of my realm. I've had this faux fur vest for almost a year. To be honest I've never really been into any type of fur. I was stepping outside of my norm when I bought this piece. Here lately I've been kinda revamping my look. Although I'm not really sure which direction I want to go in, I think this is a start. What do you think?
Hey ya'll, hey! Guess what I'm sitting here doing...
Watching football with my husband. Never would have thought in a million years that I'd become a football fan. Welp, Christmas is this Friday and in the spirit of the holiday I wanted to wear something "Christmassy." I think this tartan print skirt (worn
) is a perfect option for the season. How would you have styled this skirt?
