Say yes to the dress...

I have been battling with the idea of going to graduation for the past several months, but as of lately I have been getting super excited for my first (and not my last) COLLEGE graduation.....

So of course I need a dress.....Something fab, something sexy,something a size smaller!.....

Something  simply Cookii.

I mean its graduation for a fashion degree,I have to look AMAZING.....
So join me on me on my own quest to ' Say yes to the dress'.....

The famous Monif C Marilyn convertable dress; $215
So its kinda pricey, but it can be tied about 12 different ways and I could be totally on trend with the black or white.

Now this is slightly longer than I actually want,but its beautiful......I love a good maxi dress and I feel like I would wear it again? :$205

Monif C is doing no wrong this season and is COMPLETELY on trend....Now this one has sleeves ,cold shoulders and is long so Im not sure if its the best look for graduation,but maybe it would be a good gift?LOL ; $198

The fact of the matter is that after they hand me my degree,Im going to turn up with my friends (aka PARTY) and it will be in the middle of June.......So I could slip this light number under my gown, change my shoes and accessories so I can enjoy my evening? ; $39

I stumbled upon this dress,I really do love the designer and Im patiently awaiting her spring collection.... I have written about Jibri before,such a talented young woman. As for the dress,Im loving how nontraditional it is and the length is PERFECT. ;$250

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

The Normal Ones...

So of course every good blogger has these super glam photos posted on their blogs and IG. Like they look like they literally "woke up like this".... So if you know me, the glam thing you know that is a super stretch.. I'm normal at this point in life, I prefer leggings, Jordans and hoodie every chance I get... I have served my time in the club in 5-6 inch heels with the dresses short enough for my niece to wear. So when I sat down with my good friend, Chaz about doing photos for my blog I know I was probably every photographers nightmare. No, like seriously.... She asked about my ideas for my shoot, my visions, and I had nothing.. I mean I'm not a model? I like cookies too much....My 'sexy face' looks like I have something in my eye,lol So I did my own make up (scary, I know), Wore two of my favorite items; a denim shirt from Torrid (that my boobs are apparently too big for), and a tulle skirt from Zellie For She, And sat in front of the ca

Size and the standard of beauty ;The little girl in the pink jumper

So lately I've been battling with some deamons as far as my appearance..... As a bigger girl I have learned what can make or break you in terms of beauty..... Yet I still find it shocking when people find me attractive.I'm very shy,and often it hard to believe that people find me beautiful......I always resort back to moments of my childhood.... Picture this..... A chubby bubbly lite skin girl with braids and barettes in a pink and white shirt,deniem jumper,white socks,and pink/white nikes(eh I was a 90's kid) comes to her desk and sees a note.... "Dear Ashlei Will you be my girlfriend?" The little girl looks over to the most popular boy in class,who happens to be smiling at her from ear to ear.The youg girl sends a note back,"Yes"backwards "s" and all....Later on that day as the children file out of their lines for recess,the girls on one side stepping,playing house,and the boys on the other wresling,playing football,etc.....A yung ma
