It's Friday and I am ready to get down! Well, I am lying.I ready to get up from this work chair (I'm blogging from the job again...ssshh) and buy makeup.I just restocked my foundation only to realize how it is soooo not my color anymore.I resemble an oompa loopa, but it a tad bit cuter way and an inch or two taller.I just look really orange right now.I get fairly light in the winter time.Speaking of winter, I just found out we are expecting snow this weekend *laments in Spring 2017 collections.
You guys I am trying to up the sexy a bit, can't you tell? *waits for roars of laughter.I don't do intentional sexy well because well, shit I don't know how.I prefer subtleties like the classic 'look to side' and the piercing glare (pictured below) also known as 'are you gonna finish that?'
But seriously, 'sexy' or 'sexiness' in general is an indefinite ideal. By definition it means of or pertaining to arousal or sexual excitement; many things can fit this definition.However society has taught us that unrealistic body proportions, long layered hair, big eyes,skin tight garments (that show your cervix and uterine lining), big lips, among other things are the only sexy.As a blogger, we make our living (well not me, just yet) from visual appeal.The pressure to succumb to these standards are real as they can increase likes and exposure.
Sexy (or lack thereof,population: me) aside, what about my look?! I'm giving a 'day late and a dollar short' Mardi Gras tease with a dollop of disco! My multicolor fringe cape is the statement to end all statement pieces.When I saw it I immediately knew this piece had to be inspired by Missoni.The light hues with metallic remnants scream Studio 54, well it did to me. I don't really own any capes , so this piece was as interesting to style as it was to look at.
If you are up for the splurge (I sure as hell am not) then you can shop the Missoni Fringe jacket here
In the spirit of the boogie, I let my top and bottom shine in shape rather than in color.My bell sleeve top is like my new fave thing. It's slim fitting and the bell sleeve are made of a contrasting fabric with a light sheen for a touch of glam. Not to shabby for $13 huh?

My pants are sold out (Zara) but I have listed a similar pair
My 'mermaid mules' are from H&M and sold out literally in a few days. So I took my time curate a collection of the most shoe-tastic mules price ranging from "the low low" to "oh hell no, I aint paying that!'.
Click each pic to shop the shoe directly! (you are welcome!)
So back to this 'sexy' deal. Don't think I am some anti-sexy ,'non leg and under arm shaver' (which I only shave when they are shown.Not in protest, but in the spirit of laziness), I just think that sexy is more than tig ol' bitties and latex dress (this is NOT shade).If you got it then flaunt it , but I aint got it so...
I can't flaunt it! lol
Like for me these pants are a stretch. They fit like leggings, which I don't hate but they are not forgiving .I fell like you can see every indention on my thighs and my knee caps.I gave clingly clothes in college.I only wore it if is was too tight and too short (certified hoochie mama status).That's probably why I opposed to clingy now come to think of it. My thighs were always one of my fave parts of my body. I think they are pretty great. I think my thighs are sexy to me, and I love to show them.Not for others to oogle, but because I like them.
Side note: I don't workout much (unless you count twerking in the mirror which I do, religiously)
My point is, be your own sexy. Your sexy doesn't have to be what society says it should be. Be ok with you in your skin and know you are enough. Those likes may be nice (boooy those IG likes will mess your head up) but doing what you like because you genuinely like it is more self rewarding. Be sexy how you want and when you want, because you want to.
Of course I had to close blog out with another one of my the 'did someone say dessert?' look-back pose.
Posing 101: I'm clenching my butt right here.I do not have that much booty.Yes, I gave into the pressure.At least my butt looks nice lol.
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
