Style Post: Blue Cut-Out Dress.


"It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences." -Audre Lorde
I've found myself in a bit of an Afrocentric vibe lately, and my style has definitely reflected that. In this look, I took this short dress with cutouts (which I found at the thrift store) and added bold accessories to make the look better fit my style. The big elephant necklace and turban headband each add elements to this look that are more Afrocentric in nature.

Why I Went MIA.




You may have noticed my last post was a good 2 months ago. There are a couple of reasons for that. First of all, I was in the final stretch of tedious ass, out of my mind ass wedding planning, which all ended on October 5, when I became Mrs. Ikpe. It was a beautiful day in St. Louis, and we were surrounded by amazing friends and family. Weddings are mad stressful, but it's all worth it in the end. Oh, and I'll be sure to make a wedding post as soon as I get the photographer's pictures.

"I don't think art is propaganda; it should be something that liberates the soul, provokes the imagination and encourages people to go further. It celebrates humanity instead of manipulating it." -Keith Haring
You may be wondering why I'm holding a painting, and if so, it's because I'm shipping this bad boy off to my very first buyer today. Yes, I am officially a paid artist. Still broke, lol, but paid nonetheless. If you want to see more of my art, check out my Etsy shop, ArtistLeslieAnne.

Keep it peaceful,

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.” – Booker T. Washington

I've cut this shirt up in so many different ways, it's not even funny. Today, it's a crop top/ bandana. Tomorrow it may not exist at all. That's just the fun of fashion.

Keep it peaceful :)
