ON MY GRIND.

"Opportunity is missed by people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."
Grind. That's what I've been on for the last little while. So much has been going on, I can hardly tell my head from my feet. Everything from plays, to new moves for Flaws of Couture, to getting more spiritually in-tune with myself. Although I've always been someone who works extremely hard, I sometimes feel like I lose answers for why things happen the way they do. Sooner than later, it all comes back to me. I have to keep working my ass off to get what I want. Absolutely NOTHING comes easy to the people with the most influence in this world. There's so much that I want to do this coming fall season and I can't wait to share it with you guys! I just KNOW you're going to love it.

Yesterday, I wanted to give "Summer" a kiss. I feel like I haven't really embraced the possibilities of this summer because of all the things that we've been doing! I got so caught up that all I've been wearing is shorts and tang tops! I've also been on this "natural hair" journey, which is something I'm actually really proud of. As a black woman, I would agree that my hair is a very sensitive issue and for that matter, a HUGE deal. Let me know what you think. I wore this hand-me-down floral top that I got from my aunt and paired it with one of my MANY denim shorts. I had on Torrid's system heels and my favorite watch from Guess. I absolutely adore this top and watch. They're both officially two of my favorite summer finds. I feel so playful and so "me" in this outfit. I hope you all like it as much as I do!
Talk to you soon! sash

Sorry, "Fashion Gods".

Apparently, mixing denim is forbidden. Womp. Today I felt like going against the "fashion God's" and doing exactly that. I decided to pair both of my favorite denim pieces and call it a day. This thrifted light denim jacket use to have sleeves, but this summer I decided to cut them off for an "in with the new" feel. My dark denim shorts are from Forever 21. I adore these shorts. They pull me in, in the right places making me feel nice and secure. One thing about me is that my jeans MUST have a good grip. If not, I won't even bother. As for the shoes, you guys have seen me in these before! They're from Shoe Dazzle! And the accessories are from Sirens here in Canada.

If you're thinking of wearing something that people have ALWAYS said is a "no no", this month, go for it. I challenge you. The awesome thing about the time we're living in is that there is ample room for experiment and "trial and error". People wear the craziest things nowadays, all in the name of self expression. So what's the big problem if you want to wear sneakers with your dress, wear 50 shades of purple at the same time, or mix your denim for that matter? Give it a wack! You'll be surprised at what you come up with! -PS. The showing of the tummy in the plus size community has exploded this summer. This is something I've been doing for quite some time and I love it...AT TIMES. Be careful with this trend, ladies. It really is a hit and miss! Think it through, then go full speed ahead!
