Not until I heard the words that Joan Rivers had passed, that I realized how much she has played a role in my love of life and fashion. This woman held nothing back and made no apologizes. She always spoke her mind, but through the daggers of words she spoke, Joan had a heart of gold and one could see that she was a good person.
People got so lost amongst the negative and sometimes hurtful comments she made, but life is too short to not be able to laugh at one’s self.
I absolutely adored her, and look how long she had been in the business?! Call her the Madonna of Comedy, constantly re-inventing herself.
She made a career of saying what no one else would say, but wanted to. Hats off to Joan Rivers and her courageous deeds, jokes, and honesty. I’m sure you’re looking fabulous and flicking the world off from the clouds👑💄👠
Now to a fashion girl, such as myself, these words are mentally translated to, “Every boot speaks bliss to me, clicking and clacking down the street.”
OMGAH!!!! I CAN NOT WAIT FOR FALL! Even though I do not practice Islam, as my family does, I absolutely love covering up with layers upon layers of the cutest cardigans, sweaters, coats, scarves, leg warmers, tights, etc. It’s just absolutely intoxicating to think about all the amazing outfits that will be presented to the world as soon as I feel that swift breeze, coming through those “autumn trees.”
Layering does exist all year round, but let’s be real…it is most appropriate during the fall because the probability of sweating is so low. That also means make-up, as well as hairstyles will be able to stay intact.
Ay Dios mio…orale!

"Anaconda," this word does not necessarily bring big butts to mind, but once you mention that it is the title of a Nicki Minaj song, one can only ASSume that it is sexually embedded. I already wasn’t that into the actual song, but the video definitely set me off the edge. As a young, African-American woman, I was instantaneously outraged. THIS is the image millions of people around the world are seeing in regards to how black girls should be. Sure, there are strong, smart, and sexy women out there like Lupita Nyong’o, Kerry Washington, Halle Berry, Jennifer Hudson, and so forth. But let’s be real, Nicki’s reach to the youth is stronger than the ones listed above. Its the youth and our future society’s morals that I fear for. Being sexy is a beautiful thing, but once it creeps over into skanky, that is where the issue lies. I know men in hip-hop and other mediums objectify women all the time, which is wrong, but when a woman chooses to objectify herself, that is just downright sad.
I am currently falling head over clunky heels in love with this Twiggy-tainted, MODel rival. Although I must say that my figure is not the ideal type for rocking the micro-minis and a-line dresses, I can only tip my cloche to those that can. The whole mod-look reminds me much of the 20’s flapper girls with their prepubescent shapes and doe-eye make-up. And as I write this, I see a meme of Ariana Grande from her “Problem” video, which just so happens to feature mod-inspired attire…this post was clearly meant to occur at this very moment.
