timberlands by Manolo


This entire look gives me 2003 feels back when it was all about the Manolo Blank Timberland boots and denim was all the rage. Im sure we all still have those matching jean ensambles that Justin and Britney wore to an award show burned in our minds. In my opinion Jay and Bey did justice to that look back when they performed '03 Bonnie & Clyde' on MTV.

For me this look was so fun yet still hitting on the trends of now. Even though cornrows have always been around in the African American community I will admit its cool that its being recognized for its effortless chic look but credit should be given to the originators. Before I continue to digress the early 2000's were all about being cool and thats how I felt from head to toe. You could not tell I was not in a music video featuring Lil Kim who has the ability to be sexy and street besides that the mix of camo which never goes out of style really up'd the ante.

Pretty P


Recently I spoke with a friend of mine just about how AMAZING it is to be a woman. We get to create life, run the world, make a house a home, and of course get dolled up. I for one love being soft and pink, I am far from ashamed of my emotions, instead I embrace them which I feel we aren't always taught to do. Being a woman, a Black woman at that you're constantly the pillar of strength for everyone around you which is fine but what about when you need to let those tears out, when you need a moment to get lost within yourself. Ladies, always take what you need for yourself!! Fall, wipe those tears, add mascara, then kill shit! Wear your confidence as if its this seasons Chanel.


We can be tough as nails or as delicate as a blossoming flower either way theres beauty in it all. I love my sensuality, my virtue, Ive never been in more of a calm state in my womanhood. I know who I am, what I deserve, and all thats coming to me. Ive spent so much time working on and creating this woman that I am today that no one can come in and take away from that. I proudly rock my pink side because its a blessing to be a woman.

Black Is My Happy Color


Its so funny how colors are associated with emotions but nothing about rocking black makes me feel down or scared. In all actuality in this color I feel like anything can be conquered. Personally I think everything looks better in black!! Its something about the intensity of it. That power statement you make when you dare to rock a color that can stand alone and demand you respect it!


I constantly tell myself that I'll try out more colors and prints, hell Ive told all of you this but I can't help myself! Black allows me to face the world not giving a damn and of course its forgiving to most body types but never hide behind this bold statement realize that you're a sexy, badass, who got up and found the perfect shades of black that match one another!!





Grey Idea

                                                    
                                                    

My addiction to neutrals hasn't faded a bit! Every time I see something in color I love it but then I'll see the same piece in black or grey and I just fall madly in love with it and have to have it!! Grey has taken over my wardrobe in such a vast manner that I barely wear anything else and this crop top is stuck on rerun when it comes to what I choose to throw on.


What I will always love about fashion is its ever changing and evolving. Neutral is the new black. You don't have to feel cornered in or restricted when it comes to keeping it simple. Simplicity is the new glamour!!! I think I just made that up but its true!! Sometimes the cleanest palette can look the chicest. Right now thats working for me but if you love to be BOLD by all means be the boldest out there!! Neutral or bold remember to always be confident in it. Let your look speak volumes and remind the world who the f*ck you are!
