Straight out of Chicago

Earlier this summer a Chicago artist (A homie of mine)named,Kweli sent me some of THEE DOPEST bracelets ever.... When he told me he was going to send me one,I never expected these! I instantly fell in love ...

Kweli is the owner of a Chicago based company called, ShiKahGoh Designs. He specializes in handmade paracord and beaded bracelets. I think my favorite part of my bracelets were the unique beads which turn heads every time I wear them,to the the point of people wanting to buy them off me!
When I asked Kweli to give me a few words about his business he said ,'SHIKAHGOH312 is a Jewelry/Accessories brand based from Chicago, IL.We strive to Swag out your wrist game'

I have to say this one is my favorite,I'm sure you can guess why.....

The fluffkini.....

This March I wrote about the 'Fluffkini' and the search for the perfect one....

Shortly after the post I got super down and felt like the trend just was not for me, not because it wasn't cute, or I could not afford the pieces.... Just simply because I just didn't feel like I had the 'right' body type for the trend. I literally stalked hundreds of confident beautiful plus size women who were bold enough to rock their curves,fluff, and tummies via instagram hashtags, looking for a type of body that spoke to mine.... I scrolled through the sites of Monif C, Swimsuit For All, Forever 21, Torrid and Lane Bryant for the perfect pieces....... I knew I couldn't go sit on the beach in some frumpy skirted floral print suit or some boring solid one piece with a family reunion t-shirt over it...

So then I gave up........


Well until I got the courage to stroll into my local Lane Bryant last week. And there it was two pieces that normally retailed for well over $50-79 a pie…
