So this week I'm beginning with a blog post instead of a portfolio post. Partially because I neglected to do one last week, but mainly because I need to both vent and boast. Why the lack of outfit posts on my site may have crossed your mind. All last Fall and Winter I've been looking like a bum, well those days are over! Truth is, I really care about what I look like, I know some people would consider that vein...but I really don't care. So I got out of this whole "I don't wanna outfit post" craziness because shit, this is who I am. I'm tired of explaining the value of posting pictures of myself, to be clear, yes fashion/style may be the commonality that brought to you here. But I hope my content holds equal weight in why you come back...and I thank you kindly that you do! With that being said, I'm feeling very boss bitch in this shaggy vest and blunt cut bob! Thanks Alicia boo!!
Every now and then indulging in a little retail therapy is so necessary. Now don't go spending your rent money, but when you have a little extra change, treat yo damn self! That's exactly what I did over the past few weeks and I have not one regret. It's exactly what I needed, I can't remember the last time I went shopping. Been over here looking raggedy and that's just not me. Why has no one sought to give me an intervention, ya'll ain't right. But I appreciate the comments letting me know I've been missed. I've missed you guys too!!
Now onto the venting. Purpose is a topic of conversation that's in heavy rotation amongst the people in my inner circle. It's become somewhat of an obsessive topic for me, because over the past 4 years I've been through a lot of trail and error in discovering my purpose. Instead of me constantly asking myself. "Why or what the fuck am I doing," I mapped out what my purpose looks like. I constantly ask myself how the things I'm doing contribute to this over arching goal...aka my purpose.
Lately I've become so in tune with who I am and the life I'm building for my family and I. I asked myself have I been effective in establishing and maintaining my connection with people. I asked myself this because my purpose heavily resides in the realm of serving others. My answer to that was no. The beauty of what I do on this site is not that I put on clothes and take pictures. It's that I'm articulating a more important message, and that's to really feel good about yourself. I could easily just say, "Hey guys I wore this outfit and here are the links where you can buy it. Ok bye." But you will ever get that on this site. Here you'll always get real stories, bits of my life that I hope in some way helps you in yours. Because we're all imperfect and that's how it should be. And we all need to feel good about who we are.
So yes, these posts are so necessary. I mean how many of you have a girlfriend on call 24/7 to help you pick an outfit. I damn sure don't so what do I do? Hit up my virtual girlfriends aka my fav blogs and get a lil inspo. Hell if that's all I am, I'll take that haha.
So I boasted slightly already about feeling very exteriorly (not sure if that's a word) fly. But I feel really good inside that I'm back to sharing looks with you guys. Personal style is really something I'm passionate about and I encourage everyone to get up and put things on that express who you are. Not doing what everyone is doing, but capturing your mood and making a statement about yourself. Lawd knows everyday is an adventure when in my closet, and albeit ever changing, so am I. I always find comfort in knowing what I put on is a true reflection of me.
Everyday I feel confidant knowing what you see is what you get. And when I don't feel confidant, I go get my hair done lol!!! You know it's true. Ok bye.
