Growing up I was very much so a tomboy. ever so often I would tap into my girly side but for the most part I just felt to overwhelmed with trying to find out what my style was. Mostly I wore t-shirts and jeans or even oversized shirts. Didn’t really care too much for my body either so a lot of the time I was trying to cover it by wearing baggy clothes or sweaters. As I got older I found myself wanting to get more into fashion and makeup and all that good stuff but it wasn’t until maybe the past 4 years that I really started to grow in the style realm. It first started with a shoe obsession and now it has grown into clothes and cosmetics. Its funny because my daughter is quite the girly girl and knows early on what she does and does not like…for instance, she doesn’t really care for jeans unless they are skinny jeans, she loves leggings, and would wear a dress or skirt every single day if I let her. The winter time is almost a battle every morning when it comes to getting dressed. But anywho, one thing that I started to do was pay more attention to others whether celebrities celebrities or a stranger on the street for stylspiration. One of my very first Fashion Idols was Tracee Ellis Ross as Joan Clayton on Girlfriends. OH MY GAWD!!! SHE IS A FASHION GOD TO ME! Even outside of her character on the show she is just amazing with clothes and I… just… want to be like her when I grow up…
Angela Simmons had me a little worried in the beginning but overtime she kind grew on me. I am really feeling her in the fashion realm as well right now…First picture is one of those questionable ensembles I was talking about….
This Hair is Everything….
These ladies have helped guide me and taught me how to think outside of the box. That clothes don’t always have to be matchy matchy. Bright Colors and patterns are to be played with and experimented with. And most importantly , confidence in yourself makes the 0utfit work.
I wanna hear from you. Who gives you STYLINSPIRATION?????
