MY WOMAN

IMG_20150912_125629

Should I begin with my hair or the amounts of sun I soaked up in this outfit. I have said it many times before that I have learned all I know about being a wedding guest from the two most influential women in my life.

The last time I wore a wedding look for the blog, I borrowed from my mother’s closet. Today I borrow from my sister’s closet. This is befitting seeing as two years ago today she got married. This skirt is the remake of what used to be a dress that belonged to my sister. The number of clothes  that rotate between us saw this land in my hands last year. I immediately knew that I wanted it cut into a skirt and save it for a special occasion. I am one who is patient with certain pieces in my wardrobe and would rather wait ten years until the perfect time for me to debut the piece. Incidentally, I also acquired the clutch bag last year in May and have never used it until this weekend. Does anyone else do this?

Paired with a crop top and African beads, a pair of cap toe heels and contrasted with a pop of blue this look is perfect for a September wedding! Can we take a moment to discuss my hair… I have been working with good old Bella Rhea helping her set up shop. She’s been doing hair underground for a while now but I think you and I both agree she should not keep hiding this talent. Follow her Instagram page Hair_by_Rhea for bookings. She took these photos on my phone right before I left for the wedding.

You showed me so much love on social media, don’t shy away from leaving a comment down below!

      This silhouette for me is absolutely Marilyn Monroe but i did not want to sound cliche. Felt like an absolute lady in it. I know what you mean the scarf, huge round sunglasses and a drop top riding in the countryside with my beau. Thank you for reading

    The hair, the skirt, the shoes, the style be so on point i want to steal it. This looks like something back in the 1940’s picture tieing a scarf around your neck. Betty bop type of thing. I love. Love love.
