You know that thing that women do, when they’re shopping & looking at some badass piece of clothing, then exclaim “love it, but I def can’t pull it off.” Fuck dude, that’s always been such a big pet peeve of mine! It’s pretty much saying you lack the confidence to pull off a look you’re actually into, simply because it doesn’t fit into your fashion comfort zone. Bitch, live a little! I know it may sound a little cray but when I wear stuff, it’s mostly for me. It’s not to impress others and gain attention, it’s to make me feel fabulous! But don’t get me wrong, I have fashion insecurities too. Most of my clothing issues stem from the fact I don’t fit into them anymore or don’t have the right body type. Thanks to my hibernation weight gain (hey 10lbs, wassap), it’s okay though – I have high self-esteem, I ain’t phased. But my desires to wear cute stockings with short shorts is no longer an option, goodbye adorable waxed jeans, hello stretch pants. Not to say you gotta be rail then to dress well but it def makes the outfit try ons and shopping excursions that much more enjoyable. And to moments like these, I praise Allah for fabulous shoes and bags because them shits always fit!!
So because I’m currently in this fashion funk where all the clothes I want don’t seem to zip up properly, or fit for that matter, I thought what better time then to focus on some trends I wanna get into but haven’t yet. Here are some things I’d love to don if I could…
Sky high heels –
Oh gosh the higher the heel the longer your legs look, me loves! But how do these broads walk around looking like a graceful cot dayum gazelle? I can barely walk straight in flats let alone add height to the equation. But seriously, when a girl pulls this off and does it well – I get major balance/grace envy. High heels just demand attention, meow!
Pointy / Stiletto nails –
I’ve always been a square or oval shaped nail type of gal but these cat / point nails are kind of dope. Not only do they lengthen your fingers, they just look super badass. Very cat woman/dominatrix-esque. But can you imagine all the cuts you’d give yourself? I guess it’s worth it to look a little emo esp if your nails are this spectacular.
Backless clothing –
Sometimes it pays to be flat chested. You can go braless for morning coffee runs, well..that’s about it really. But now you have another thing to rejoice about, backless shirts! I love this look. The idea of an unexpected peek-a-boo behind is very sexy. No bra needed? No prob for the moderately endowed. If I wore this I’d have such bad nipple-it is people across town would see.
Crazy eye makeup –
You know, this is the one thing I regret not paying attention to while growing up. My sister is an amazing make-up artist, and I spent years resisting her services and secretly taking it off because I felt so weird with it on. Now at the ripe age of 25 I’m wanting to learn how to contour, blend eye shadow, create the smoky eye effect. This shit is fucking hard. But I give it to the girls that majored in clown make up and are running the streets with their cray faces – very neat to see! And plus they make your face so beautiful and glamorous!!
Anyways I just had some banana chocolate chip pancakes and done gon’ caught da itis brah! See you in a few, have a great weekend xo.
