‘I don’t look back, it distracts from the now’
Hi everyone, hope you're all doing great and off to a productive week. I've been doing great! my days are full of happiness and joy and it has something to do with the fact that I am doing exactly what I love. Being a writer and contributor for the National newspaper- The Gleaner, and being able to inspire women (and men) about dressing well and feeling good about themselves has been very rewarding. In the process it gives me a platform to teach anything I know and it is such a blessing- plus I get to play dress up and meet some pretty cool people ;)
I give God thanks and I am grateful for everything that I have been through in my life that has lead me to this point. The good, the bad and the in between.
I always like to mix vintage pieces with new pieces because it adds uniqueness to my look and I think that if we adhere to this principle it prevents us from looking like we bought everything off a manequin in a store. Also, my vintage pieces all have a little story to them and the nostalgia warms my heart. These pants are by Jean Paul Gaultier and I got them when I was the manager of a thrift shop in Richmond Hill. I totally lucked out and screamed with joy when I saw them hanging for a mere $8, of course I grabbed them up.
Here I mixed the never-fail monochromatic combo with classic pearls for softness and a snake choker to toughness. For contrast against the vintage high-waist pants I went with a sexy backless bodysuit and popped the look with a trendy metal-face spiked belt and envelope clutch.
