The romper....




I love fashion.




Im a girl,I love shopping,fashion,colors,fabric,textures....




Ill admit that on weekend getaways Elle magazine can be my bible....




I work retail,so I almost get to shop for a living....




Tiffany,Chole,Gucci,Cavalli,Juicy are all welcome house guest to me.




But Im not a big trend follower....they kinda turn me off(except my maxi dress obession!)









So of course when my job(and some of my favorite retail fixes)showed their summer lines,




I was shocked




Possibly boarderline appauled....









What the eff is this?


A ROMPER?





Could this be the most god awful thing on the runway now?




What grown woman will willingly put on a ONESIE?



Like this is a honest question....

Not only does it look like a yeast infection waiting to happen.....

But its a ONESIE....No one over the age of 2 should be wearing this...

Ladies,
Put it on with a sneaker,
Put it on with a pump,
...Maybe a stilleto too....
BUT IT IS STILL A ONESIE....

Ill admit its cute....but only on my 3yr old neice....
Something about a 24 yr old woman carrying a fabu handbag,and sickning sunglasses wearing a neon colored ONESIE in the streets tryin to take care of business DOES NOT DO IT FOR ME!!!

Hence why Im instating the NO ONESIE campaigan brought to you in part by the same lovely people who are working with the American Dairy Committee for the Cheese Crisis 2009.....

I could be wrong about all of this...
Onesies...I mean Rompers could be hot...

But I kno you WILL NOT catch all 5feet 9inches and 250llbs of me in one...

Jus because its in my size at Torrid DOES NOT mean ill go there.....

Fashion cues for the Attractive and Mature....

For some reason everyone wants to claim to be 'grown and sexy'.....And for some reason cant dress the part... So Ive created my own phrase "this isnt for the grown and sexy,this is for the mature and attractive"....On the strength that those of us who actually are 'grown and sex' do not have to remind those around us EVERY 5 MINS or attend events named after this fad saying.....Attractive and mature have the form of dress that states it. So take these few helpful hints.... 1-Ladies;your jewelry needs to be simple and functional.A few simple pieces (not made of PLASTIC or from the hair store) say alot ....Perfect examples are.... a cocktail ring a silver 'return to Tiffany&co' bracelet or just something lite to put around your wrist a pearl necklace;classic AND sexy. a plain gold hoops <==NO,i repeat NO doorknockers a pearl earrings 2-Step your shoe game up,purchase a good CLASS pair of shoes What is a good pair of shoes you ask?A good pair of

I kinda did a thing......Nothing major...

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,
