You guys I am more than honored and touched at the response from my Teen Vogue mock interview ! I have seen all of the comments and I will try to respond today, but I have limited access to my blog after 5 pm. I am still battling hateration and holleration from my internet access to my blog from my dancerie (home). Pray for my Wi-Fi connection y'all.Any who, when I started this blog I never imagined it would become what it is becoming. It's more than fashion and more than a blog; it is becoming a hub of inspiration served by an awkward and extra (hence the post title) fashion lover (me).
Awkward by definition is someone who feels embarrassed, nervous, or lacks grace. I take great pictures, but I am such a little odd bird in reality. I am clumsy, I walk fast, and I act odd when I meet new people.IDK maybe its because half the people I meet or ingenuine (which is NOT an official word yet) and I am weeding them out early. Either way, those quirks I have learned to love about me. They help to make me special
I am special, but not because of what I wear or the things I have.It's because I choose to be.I know myself and am confident whether in a t-shirt from Wal-Mart or on Gucci boots.Yes, I am wearing Gucci boots today.I treated myself for a job well done on my pretend interview.
Tings nah make me,I mek tings *in my Jamaican voice.Anybody could wear what I wear, but they are not me so it might be the same.It's like the saying 'wear your clothes, don't let them wear you'.The essence you bring to a look makes all the difference.I don't have some great job with a banging salary. I just maximize by looks and make them look 'quality' by studying the runway and then hitting up my faves (Zara, Shein, H&M,and thrifting) to get inspired pieces for less.Attention to detail is everything.Not every 'inspired' piece is worth buying even if the price is right.
This Gucci inspired bomber was definitely a must have though! I got it from Romwe last year.After studying the Gucci version and it's details, I decided that this bomber was worth it.
As you have guessed by now my bomber is sold out ,so is my skirt. So of course I posted similar items.The price point of the skirt is a but pricey for me ($60, esp from H&M) but I posted it to shop and for color palette inspo, so I don't wana hear "Naw you changed, you posting all this expensive stuff! You ackin' brand new!" .I promise I am not, but I can promise this skirt will def go on sale on H&M lol.

You can never go wrong with a pair of sunnies.Some like to splurge on those,but I don't because I am clumsy and lose things.I would hate to scratch them or lose them after spending a pretty penny,so that is not something I personal invest in.My sold out frames are from Romwe.com.They always have great shades for the low.My bag, which describes my face everytime hubs says "are those shoes new?", is a great statement bag.Aside from the facial resemblance, I bought the bag (on sale hallelujah from Zara, $15-sold out) because of the shape.The duo behind Mansur Garvriel , most notably recognized for their must-have bucket bag, created a stunning circle bag ($795) with the same structure.I knew I would not be able to afford it based on the way my account is set up.So I opted for the next best thing, until I become a wealthy world-renown stylist and image consultant *waits for universe to provide.

"Just get to the damn boots already!" I feel like that's what you are thinking. They were a cool $100! Girl, *claps hands I AM NOT LYING! I of course didn't need them, but Gucci boots for $100 is a no-brainer.How is it that I found this and all my designer deals? Therealreal.com is how! They only consign authenticated designer items and at some of the best prices, and trust me I know great prices.Clearance is my middle name *I'm lying but you get it.These boots were an investment and I am waiting on my return.I visit the site daily , hitting up the "New Arrivals" and "Sale" to see the latest goods and deals as you can see from my lovely diagram below.
It's not always about want you desire to have, but how you utilize what you have or within your means.Persistence and creativity are the two keys to my fashion editor-esque looks , along with off the wall inner workings of my brain.I am proudly awkward and extra, but I am also above and evolved. You could also consider me alluring and exotic, I could go on all day with these affirmations and expectations of myself.I'm so comfortable with who I am , but honestly I have my readers to thank in part to that.You all really give me so positivity and speak so much life into me.I'm so eternally grateful for you all.
Drop your "A&E" below! I would love to know more about my readers! I already know you are awesome and excellent :) xoxo
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
