A Day in the Life of a Princess

In Fashion, Personal Style

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a princess or a ballerina. After complaining to my mom that I had going to practice, being a princess was my only option. As I got older, I realized that being a princess wasn’t like Beauty and the Beast. In fact, it was more like Michelle Obama, Frida Kahlo or Maya Angelou. Inspiring women to their best selves, regardless of what cards they are dealt. I’d like to think that I am a princess. I may not be as notable as Michelle Obama, but I feel like I overcame a lot and try to inspire others along the way. In fact, I hope everyone looks at themselves as princesses or queens! It may feel like a five-year-old’s depiction of the perfect life–but hear me out: When we were kids, we looked up to some of these Disney Princesses, what’s the harm of looking up to yourself? We get up every day; we put on a game face, (and some of us have to deal with a sexist president by the name of #45) then continue slaying dragons. And even if you feel defeated most days, don’t let that spark die. Let your invisible crown be your guide and may you feel like the best-dressed person where ever you go.

Speaking of, remember when I had an amazingly detailed lace dress from Eleven 60? Well, I am back it again with their Naturally Nude dress!!  Talk about feeling and looking regal! This dress is giving me ALL THE PROPER VIBES!! I wish I still had more weddings to go to because I feel like stuntin’ a little bit!! I am wearing a size 3x, and it’s a perfect fit. If you have larger breasts or big arms, size up because there’s no stretch.

You save lives every day, and you probably don’t even notice it. So put on that crown, kiss a few babies and do what you do!

That 70’s Show- Bell Bottoms and Vests

In Personal Style

Happy Friday! Can you believe it? My long weekend starts now and I’m still trying to get my post done right before me and my best friend leave. But I knew I couldn’t leave without posting something for y’all! So as of late I’ve been really getting into this “look”. I am not sure what you would call it but here are some looks that I loved! I guess we can say it’s a 2016 rendition of the 70’s.

So in my search to curate this look, I knew the perfect place to find each of these items. Forever 21  never fails to have every piece of the puzzle.

Forever 21

From the vest, to the sweater, I found this whole look with ease. Forever 21 is often called the one stop shop of fast fashion because you can find almost anything you need.

Paired with my favorite pair of booties from Rainbows, my hat from Aerie, and bag from H&M, it was done deal! If you couldn’t tell from my past posts, I love to frequent fast fashion places. Not because I’m broke but because they are, at time, the most breathable pieces.

Ebony Gala 2.0- GOWNS

In Plus Size Fashion

Happy Hump Day!

As I’ve been tossing back and forth with deciding whether I would be attending the Ebony Gala this year, I thought about how much fun I had last year!

Playing dress up with the girls, 3 rooms of music, and all best and brightest of Boston under roof—> I GUESS THAT’S A WIN WIN!

If you can recall last year’s outfit, I really went against the status quo! I wore my MONIF C Sequin Jumpsuit! It was an eye turner and definitely unique!

Today, I wanted to highlight some places I will be checking out. GIVE AWAY TIME!!! The first person to guess which dress I am getting, will win one item from that specific brand!  

 

So let’s start with where I went last year, MONIF C. Here are three dresses that I’ve mulled over for the past month. I think it’s about that time to stop mulling and start shopping!

Youtheary Khmer– In the beginning, I kept saying to myself,  ” I don’t want to wear a conventional gown. I want to stick out like last year.”  So the first thing that came to my was YK!
