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

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,

So I did a thing.... Chapter 1

This is the story of how my life was changed (again) in a matter of a few months... Its taken a while to process everything that has happened in my healing, the journey and ultimately what is next for me ... So bare with me as I tell this LONG story, Ill include pictures though to make it kinda fun...I have dealt with a lot of depression and anxiety stemming from this entire situation because of things that went wrong, things that were left unattended (by my own hand) and ultimate outcome...But I want to share my story because I know that someone else is hurting in silence and could use some help. While I don't have all the answers ,or maybe any some days, I have my story On February 19th at 12:30pm, I had 19cm/ 3.06 pound fibroid and 8+ pounds of excess skin removed in the same 6 hour long procedure.... Days later I had to have 2 blood transfusions due to the loss of blood in surgery and after.  Apparently things got scary (I didn’t know,I had a TON of morphine in my sy

Chapter 6 .....Silvia

And just like that.... I had a date. The scramble began, I had to cram 6-8 weeks of recovery plans in a matter of 10 days.... Oh, and  I mention this is my final semester of my degree? So yea on top of working full time, trying to navigate through my interpersonal relationships,  and processing whatever is about to happen, I had to navigate what this could possibly look like for the last of my education. via GIPHY I was extremely emotional at this point and probably closer to my breaking point that what I honestly wanted to admit.......... I was scared. Scared of the pain, the recovery, the incision, hell how my body would look and feel because I had honestly just adjusted to the initial weight loss and of course dying. While both procedures are fairly simple, its rare that they are done together....So I had no clue what to expect but that I was going to be in pain... I got my tribe together for surgery/recovery plans, bought plenty of wine (they like
