Seed Planting

IMG_1803.CR2
So, am I the only one who was trying to remember whether or not Joshua had a tree? No, he didn’t but he planted many seeds. Speaking of which, that’s what I’ve been doing. All summer I’ve been shifting and restructuring to stop clocking into other people’s empires and making them great. The shift has taken some lifestyle changes and some consecrated focusing. Oh, how I’ve missed you dearly; it feels good to peek in and say- hello. Thank you to...

The Dialogue

Him_ You’re so pretty, but I’ve never talked to a big girl. Me_ I’m sorry, did you think this was your opportunity_
The Dialogue   Him: You’re so pretty but I’ve never talked to a big girl before. Me: I’m sorry did you think this was your opportunity?   “What in the heck is he doing?” “Girl, this his third time circling this counter.”  My coworker Justine spotted dude last week checking me out. Working for MAC, we often got creepers who shopped through pretty girls like meat. I swear men were worse than our customers. Customers would literally scan our faces as they approached the counter. Now, when...

5th Blogiversary

IMG_1558
Wow 5 years and a sweet one it's been. I've learned so much in this blogosphere, some sweet and some bitter. I just smile at how I've grown in my way of thinking as blogger. Let's go down memory lane. I remember when I became a blogger I took hours gathering boggers who I respected greatly and enjoyed either their sense of fashion or how they appeared to be so boss via social media. I gathered emails to introduce myself....

Regal

Regal, a whole mood. Yeah, I’m definitely feeling my richest. If I’m not mistaken this is the first two-piece suit I’ve ever worn on my blog. I must say, I love it. ASOS did a great job with this bowtie print burnt orange suit. One thing I found necessary was to continue to up the feminine tone the suit displays. Let me tell you what's crazy. When I paired the bow tie suit with the bow tie blouse, it wasn’t...

Feline & Fringe

IMG_0891
I bought this skirt in spring and knew it would be the center of attention no matter what I paired it with. I toggled and tarried so long to find the perfect tee, before I knew it, it was the middle of fall. At that point I was at ground zero again. Going through my closet looking for something to wear, I came across my skirt and thought, ya know, I still see myself wearing this skirt uber casual- effortlessly...

New Year & Dripping

IMG_0992[758]
You saw this dress and swore I was a fly on the wall who heard you talking about how you were looking for the perfect holiday outfit, right? How I hate to admit, I was not that fly, but I feel you. This dress is definitely what the new year needs. Simplicity with a little extra. I spotted this dress on ASOS and thought, this is it after 3 months of debating! I purchased it in November and realized that...

Modern Romanticism

"When you're fluid & solid at the same dang time! Scientifically; My matter changes with the environment Divinely; I'm indestructible!" -Shenell   Girl! I know I’m always claiming a look is by far by fave, but this time I’m for real! I finally styled my Fia Factory top as my heart desired. It’s a beautiful seasonal piece and full of character, so I wanted to fashionably take it to a place that was most fitting.  After contemplating, I knew it needed layering to accomplish a chic...
