Halloween is right around the corner, and I am still on the fence about a costume post.For now please enjoy my dark, yet lovely sultry night time look.
Hiya guys and gals! It's Wednesday which means only one thing to me :it's not Friday.Over it! I'm keeping it cool, casual, and straight up geek'ed today.
Long time no post huh? Well it's only been a week and I have good reason. Hurricane Matthew devasted much of eastern North Carolina.6 days with out lights , tremendous amount of flooding, and fallen trees left me almost immobile. Compared to my neighbors and family back home I didn't lose much , and for that I am thankful.
I am still wrapped up with Shop Feline and their amazing headwraps as I close out the week. With Hurricane Matthew making it's way up the coast, I have been in much more of a solemn mood . So much damage and so many lives lost in Haiti , I am not much in the mood to be jazzed up. I pray for all those weathering the storm and mourning the loss of loved ones.
I'm keeping it under wraps all week with Shop Feline.I am wearing one of their solid color head wraps tied in a bow for the ultimate feminine Old Hollywood glam.Shop them here to see all of their fab pieces.You know how much I love Burgundy , so get used to seeing a lot of it this season.
I have been jamming to Solange's new album, A seat at the Table, like many over the weekend. Amidst all of the social unrest , it's great to hear positive tunes promoting unapologetic blackness. Being the proud black girl I am , I am sharing a little of my #blackgirlmagic in a fly girl type of way.
Yellow, it's me *insert roaring laughter. Fall is the most wonderful time of the year for one reason :jackets. I love them! Don't ask me how many I have (about 50 give or take ) . I am a woman obsessed; a trait I got honest from my mom. Thanks Mable lol
Champagne wishes and caviar dreams......the story of my life *stares out window. I don't really mind wishing though, it keeps me optimistic. Pink , Blush, Rose and all shades in between the pink spectrum are slowly making their way back into my wardrobe , as I am sure you can tell.For Fall, I find pairing with Burgundy is one the feminine combos you can have. Add a splash of gold and you have a winner.
Hi Kids! *in my Keke Palmer voice. Thanks for stopping by today. The gag for today is *drum roll please JUST BE YOURSELF! Why you ask? Because everyone else is taken. It is so easy to get lost on the sauce in a world of social media and fashion overload, especially as a blogger. There is a thin line between inspiration and emulation which is very easy to get crossed and or blurred. As many of you may know, I love a great inspired look.I may see something on someone and it may spark my imagination and that is how is starts. I also don't mind acknowledging the origins of my inspirations either. In a world, where sometimes style is masked in a uniform look of Olive and nude colored bodycon, middle -parted hair ,flawless makeup, and coke-bottle body types it is refreshing to see so many resist the peer pressure and potential IG likes just to be true to their style. I admire that and that is why I pay homage.
I too don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight, Sia. My money is already spent on my outfit *sly smirk.
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
