Happy girl, happy world

Happy girl, happy world! It’s as simple as that. When you learn to be happy and thankful for what you have, all the things that meant so much don’t seem to hold much significance anymore. I may have back to back appointments/meetings, 1000 things to do per  day, and barely any time to tweeze my eyebrows (they’re like a jungle mess), but I’m not sure I’d want it any other way. Staying inspired is not hard esp when you have great friends, family and love. My motivation isn’t fancy cars (it is, but that’s for later on), but more for the people around me. I want to take care of the ones I love! .. sigh, just one of those mornings where I wanted to show you my gratitude. Thank you!

Okay now moving on to more materialistic fashion things, yay. THANK YOU to every single person that left a comment, tweeted, texted, and emailed me in regards to their dress pick in last week’s post! I had such awesome feedback, made me want to buy it all so that I could make you happy.. but unfortunately my Visa thought otherwise. So here’s what I went with.

Wedding (evening) / Next day post wedding brunch (day)

Zara lace & leather dress / ASOS Skater dress with embellished collar

Totally in love with that cream ASOS, should be arriving shortly :) I haven’t gotten the Zara one yet bc its not available in stores but when it arrives, and if the fit is good, we are on like donkey kong. But knowing me, and my knack for picking dresses that look better on the hanger, I picked up this back up dress for the wedding..

Ted Baker Haylea pleated maxi dress (avail in blue here)  It’s an orange/tangerine color in person and friggin’ gorgeous! If only I had a Hermes belt to wear with it…. nudge nudge.

And for those who liked the Alice + Olivia joint..

My homegirl Nia found almost the same dress for a fraction of the cost. Alice + Olivia was over $300, vs. Greatglam $35! It comes in blue (pictured), as well as red and green. Thanks Nia!

In other news, are you keepin up with the HONEYDRIP team? It’s a hub of all things dope girls (aka you) are into. High end nail art, boys we lust after, shoes that Cinderella would even trip over, and pretty much the in’s and out’s of what it is to be a woman handlin’ her biz, get familiar ladies! Here’s a sneak preview of what’s to come..

Sweatshop of 1.

Making it MEOW with custom pieces! We love creating unique pieces and sharing it with the women that understand our vision. Thank you to everyone for your support, we’re having a blast and couldn’t be where we are without you. Work in power, always.

On to my shameless plug, if you’re an H&M lover/hater like I am, then you already know about the sneak preview of their collab with Vogue Japan editor at large/create consultant, Anna Dello Russo.. sweet lord the collection had me quivering at the loins!

Peep my article for Vancitybuzz here – I’ve picked some of my favorite pieces to share. The collection is seriously over the top, gotti, in your face and very old gold money.. I LOVE IT. As much as I dress like a poor banshee student with barely a dime to her name, my blood lusts after gotti shit like this. Gold, bright colors and straight up BOUGIE. Veeezyloves!!!

Anyways my loves, sorry for the lack of content, this post is more or less what I’ve been up to.. which is a whole lot of nothing and everything. Stay hungry, stay humble. love you! xo.

Thoughts?

Need your help, please. Must find a dress for a wedding! Things to consider – October wedding in Seattle, to be worn with date in navy suit, I want to be able to eat and drink (conceal food baby), my lady curves and humps..and most importantly, I want to look pretty! Now which one?

ASOS skater dress. I think this is IT. but I can’t be sure because i have tourettes. Help, please.

ASOS Bow waist dress

SOS Lipsy sequin peplum

ASOS Dolly dress in Baroque print

TOPSHOP red mesh low v dress / TOPSHOP sequin ballerina dress - love the sequin and princess poof dress.. but i might look 12 instead of 21 (plus 4)

Alice + Olivia long sleeve goddess dress – Cute but maybe not for a wedding…

ZARA Studio dress w/ leather / ZARA lace dress w/ feathers – the first one is really trendy, and beautiful. The second has feathers, seriously.. who doesn’t love feathers?

ASOS mini dress / ASOS Darling Amelia lace dress - red is never a bad color choice!!

So..what will it be folks? Lace, color, tight? Or maybe i’ll end up with my regular go to outfit. Garbage bag w/ arm holes…..

Sunshine makes me want to get my pastel on.

It’s seriously so gorgeous today I almost went out bra-less! Oh the days of a hot sticky summer. With the sun, comes the hopeful dream of dressing for it..in mother effin’ PASTEL y’all. I know we’re still a hop and a skip away from summer but the colors and inspiration are already flooding my mind. Hence the nail job I did yesterday.

Kitty kept me company, she helped dry my nails with her wagging tail. Genius child. I cant’ wait for hot weather.. I’ll be wearing my too-short-for-work dresses all day errryday. Air flowing between your loins is such a  beautiful thing.

Can you taste the happiness?? If Spring/Summer were to knock on my door tomorrow, I would greet them with a mojito in one hand, and these dresses all up on me. I love doing light fabrics and colors in sunny weather because tanned skin next to light hues is absolutely delicious. “Oh this ol’ tan? I got it while frolicking nekkid in St. Tropez. No biggy.”

Romwe bow knot pastel dress $21 / Marchesa Nott dress $925 $370 / CK Rain Draped Dress $1271$635 / Robert Rodriguez one-shoulder silk dress $495$222.75 / DVF Blaire dress $522  (This Blair dress previously seen here. I guess Big papi forgot my address)

Some accessories for those who arent comfortable with the whole pastel fitted look. ASOSskinny bow tie belt $10 / ASOS Limited Edition Pastel Chainmail Drop Earrings $17.91 $14.32 / Miu Miu Pastel cat eye stunna shades $300 / Ice cream ring $8 / Sam Edelman mint bow pumps $606 / Lens Get Gorgeous ring $10 – so cute!

Color therapy (as previously mentioned right huuur) is something people dont indulge in enough. Now go on my love, go get your mint on…

Another shot of my lavender nails in day light. sorry about the bad paint job, i hate it when bitches post crusty nails up.. it was late, and i was tired. Sue me!! Happy hump day, let’s chat later. xoxo
