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.
KeKe Palmer is such a fun, fearless, and intelligent young black woman. She first hit the scene in the inspirational drama "Akeelah and the Bee" in 2006.To see a young girl on the big screen starring in a moving and looking me impacted me in such a major way. I wanted to see her win because I wanted to win so I began to watch her career blossom and cheered her along the way. From True Jackson VP on Nickelodeon, to various movies, her budding music career, and her recent FOX network domination on Scream Queens and Grease Live, I have to cheering and twerking for my girl. She also is quite the fashionista as well. Steering from the norm, which I love, she marches to the beat of her own style drum and gives 0 f%^&s. Taking one from the page of the iconic maximalist herself, Iris Apfel, she also believes in "more is more and less is a bore''. A great fashion philosophy to which I am definitely in agreement. Here's to KeKe, a carefree beautiful black girl who changes her hair every week, likes long nails, twerks on film, and slays in her own lane!
