Hell no to Heels

I like heels. For show, not functionality. They are, just like every other accessory, an optional addition to an outfit. Depending on the event or weather, heels are one’s choice to wear. My first night in Miami Beach showed that this over-sexualized getaway is prejudice against the nice-looking girl, looking to have a good time out on the town. Although I wore my best dress and up-do, the Godzilla doorman turned me away for wearing gladiator sandals, instead of heels. Excuse me for not wanting to stand up and dance all night with my feet feeling like swollen sausages. Tantra can suck my perfectly pedicured, big toe.

Margaritas in Miami

I’m going to a place where the sun is shining and the beaches are beautiful 😎. Final spring break for my time as an undergrad. All of the hard work, patience and preparing has led me to this moment where I may slip into something sultry👙and walk amongst the luxurious atmosphere. Order up, please🍹

Drop-crotch Debacle

The majority of human beings can not pull off a drop-crotch. It easily looks like a saggy diaper. And how do you know if one can pull it off? The simple answer is that you still find them attractive and that the crotch has no relevance to their attractiveness.

All I See is Red

For some odd reason, I have always felt that red never looked good on my skin tone, but after my roommate gave me this tangy, red beret -wahla!- red fever struck my being.  Every skin tone coincides with particular color shades, as in; one can wear any color, as long as they find the right shade of that color.  My issue for the longest time was not coming across a red that accentuates the tones of my skin.  It seems in the past few days, red is the only thing on my mind.  Call Taylor Swift, she can’t have her “Red” back.

Let’s Just Pretend There’s A Camera Capturing Every Moment

Not to give myself a big head or anything, but lately I have been feeling like a reality tv superstar.  It may be the countless hours watching Real Housewives or Shahs of Sunset on Bravo, but it’s like my every moment is being documented for the entertainment of millions of viewers stateside.  Many people try to diss reality tv stars, but they hold a stressful job.  Cameras follow them around 24/7 to capture all the scripted drama that would cease to exist if it wasn’t for money, hungry producers.

Bill Cosby Crossover Tour

Oversized sweaters are the hottest selling price item right now among college campuses and those that choose to be comfy, while looking effortlessly fabulous. Nothing screams indie and trendy like a thrift store find with boots and leggings. Top it with an infinity scarf and high bun, and you are left looking like a coffee-drinking, twitter fiend that clearly ignores social faux-pas.

I’m not the kind of girl to pass up delectable delights, so it’s no surprise to say that I have what some call a “tummy.” Not to say the least, I’m no Honey Boo-Boo, but I don’t make it a habit to wear cropped tops sin undershirt. Oversized shirts are awesome at covering our imperfect bellies, but they seem to take away shape and curvature that we naturally have. I love my bosom-waist-hip ratio, and quite frankly, I want people to notice my genie in a bottle body. Therefore, my heart and gut nearly busted when I saw peplum shapes coming back into rotation. They are absolutely divine!!!! It’s also a savior for the shapeless set who want to form curves. It’s a trend that compliments all shapes and sizes.

Black and Brown…not good all over

I have contemplated with this post because quite frankly, I feel hypocritical. For the longest time, I have chastised my fellow skin walkers that have adorn black and brown combos. However, with the purchase of my absolutely, fabulous pair of Minnetonka fringe boots, I find myself wearing black to really have them stand out. Not to say black and brown go together, but various shades do compliment each other. For example, dark brown is a definite “no” to pair with black, but a nice tan or camel is chic. *side note: if you are doing camel with black, make sure to not over do it. Try and keep a single camel-piece present. Unless it involves a multi-colored scarf that pushes your look into Kate Moss status.
