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

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,
