“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 :)

Happy Independence Day! There's nothing I love more than a holiday that gets you off work...praise the Lordt. This isn't exactly a red, white, and blue outfit, but it has hints of reds, blue, and nude, which on a scale of 1 - Patriotic, is about a 5. And I'm ok with that because America's been tap dancing on my nerves lately anyway, lol. :)

I wore these thrifted Hawaiian print shorts with a denim crop top and finished the look with a bold nude necklace and jelly sandals. I love getting old shorts because they're usually high waisted with a modest length, and if you want them shorter, a pair of scissors is all you need.

So what are you guys up to this weekend? I may go party in DC, but I'll probably stay at home with my fiance and Penelope (pup) and grill, pop fireworks, and drink some tasty ass rum. :)

Celebrate. And keep it peaceful, friends!

How to Style: Short Bodycon Dress

Dress: Foerver 21 / Wrap: Unknown / Shoes: Nine West 
The kind of beauty I want most is the hard-to-get kind that comes from within - strength, courage, dignity. -Ruby Dee

 Happy Monday!

This outfit is definitely channeling Mother Africa. It's a fun, summertime outfit for the beach, a funky festival, or any type of eclectic crowd. To me, short bodycon dresses can sometimes come off like you're two seconds from going to the club, especially if you're wearing heels. So I decided to throw this wrap I bought while on vacation in Antigua around my waist, paying special attention to position the opening right at the top of my thigh to show a little leg....cuz I'm fancy like that.
