This dress is so timeless. I almost died when I saw it. One of my favorite ladies, Mama B, let me borrow it haha. It was the dress she wore the day before her wedding in Lebanon. I am pretty much obsessed with anything sheer. It gives such a gorgeous feminine look but isn't too revealing.

"Anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are, you will never ever reach your personal potential" -Oprah Winfrey

This was my DIY dress. I get bored very easily and feel like I'm always competing with myself. As always, I got bored with this black dress so I rummaged through my closet and found a different dress that was leopard. I cut the leopard dress and made it into a crop top shirt. With the left over fabric that was leopard, I put it on this black dress and also made leopard shoulder pieces...and this was the final product!


bring your best.

"Belief in one's self and knowing who you are, that's the foundation of everything great" -Simon Cowell

I love putting contract colors together, so I figured why not blue and yellow. I'm not too fond of either color because I don't think either goes well with my skin complexion...especially blue, but I felt like switching it up. I like shopping when im upset or sad and yesterday I found these high waisted shorts on sale. I'm in love with them. I originally wanted to wear just a bra with the shorts, but I GUESS my morals stopped me. haha. I swear when I become a famous fashion icon/designer one day, I'm going to wear just the bra with them because then I'd be able to get away with it. I'm sure if I wore that out now it would be indecent exposure. One day my lovely day. Thank you so much to everyone for your condolences in my previous post.

Today my grandfather passed away, just wanted to do a quick post in remembrance of him without getting too emotional. The last time I saw him he kept falling in and out of sleep, but everytime he woke up, I'd be texting on my phone he'd ask me everytime he woke up if I'm still fashion blogging! It made me smile and laugh so hard. He probably asked me that like 10 times to make sure I was still doing it haha. It's good knowing he believed in me as well. So I wanted to say I LOVE YOU GRANDDADDY AND YOU'LL BE MISSED! Thank you to everyone who wrote me saying my pictures weren't showing. Photobucket was having maintenance problems which messed up my blog for about 2-3 days.

I'm super in love with burnt orange, it's one of my favorite colors so when I saw this dress I had to get it. Not much to say this post. Hope everyone is having a good week.

"Everybody look at you strange say you changed, like you worked that hard to stay the same?" -JayZ

Since it's April, I felt like doing something Easter-y. Yeah, definitely just made that word up haha but I'm obsessed with pastel colors so now is the perfect time. I've been attacking all sorts of jelly beans lately because Easter time always has the best kind and jelly beans are my favorite candy in the world!
