New Fashion or Old Designs

Adorning her body’s curves as if it was made by God just for her, Rihanna graced the outside of the White House in a Stella Jean original. Bringing attention to this designer we had never known, she began to catch the attention of fashion lovers everywhere. Making statements with her bold prints and aged silhouettes Miss Jean understands how to create something new. Although there are plenty of designers who recreate previous silhouettes and paste bold prints into their designs but Stella Jean’s work is her history, an extension of herself which creates so much life in her collections. Pushing together two prints that us fashion commoners wouldn’t dare do, celebrities wear her designs straight from the runway. I have only love and admiration for the designer.

Marsala

Since the beginning of time, fashion has been on the shoulders of men. When Queen Mary was being fitted for her couture gowns, she was being measured by a man. Male’s have dominated the industry due to their state of mind,  men understand what a woman needs to wear, what looks appealing on a woman’s body. Dior flipped the industry with his New Look, critics thought fashion was dead in London until Christian Dior showed his collection. Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell facinated the industry with their flowing silhouettes and unique patterns. Being in the industry for some years now I believe people don’t understand women’s fashion is inspired by men’s fashion. When designers show their collections at fashion week menswear is before womenswear. Although it seems as if mens fashion isn’t a forefront, truthfully it isn’t, but the fashion industry depends on the history of menswear to design their women’s collection.

Just a little history and insight I wanted to share.

I inserted my favorite inspiration from Fashion Week. For some reason I love this look!

Peace, Love, and Regimes !

Body confidence is short in demand in this day and age.  Young girls are growing up wanting to have that amazing body and women are going under the knife and other extremes to create that illusion.  Once I saw this post on IG I had to think twice.  I believe Kim K is an amazing marketing tool and because she promotes something it will most likely sell. She has a great body.  But she is not an idol, I don’t care how you got somewhere but it does matter how you maintain your position.  She continously “sells”  her body to keep her status because that is all she has.  I don’t mind but when I see her name attached to something that she doesn’t represent, it irritates me.  In my opinion, I don’t believe she has self – belief, she doesn’t use her power to help girls/women find their own confidence, to find themselves.  Honestly, she seems to not have it herself, she is a puppet in the entertainment industry. She complains about her body constantly on KUWTK, so why are you trying to promote body confidence?  Her “style” is initiated by Kanye.  She didn’t dress like that before. Use Zoe Saldana, Khloe/Kourtney  K, Beyoncé, Fergie, Miley Cyrus. . . . . These women constantly express how society warps our mind with what we should look like but they also express this is how they look and there is nothing wrong with that.  Confidence and Empowerment goes hand in hand and I don’t believe Kim K should promote something she clearly states she doesn’t have.  My friend is always promoting Lauren Hill,  Aaliyah because they were always enforcing the improvement of self. But now we have to filter our minds to ensure we don’t fall prey to such idiocracies.

*this is not to knock any one down but simply my thoughts on an issue that I constantly see.  To each it’s own.

You can always pray and ask God to do everything for you but you in return also have to put in work. You need to ready your land for the prosperous harvest that is bound to grow as long as you nurture it.

The Real(ness)

5342909_orig

So as I am sitting, anxiously, trying to finish my 600 word essay ( I know- not that difficult). I began to side track, answering text messages, checking Instagram. . . when I’m scrolling through my group message (with my 3 besties-yes I still use that word) and I see something about Chris Brown + The Real. Now I love The Real and think it’s a good show, despite it’s sometimes bland moments. And I support Chris Brown as an artist, he is very talented. So, I go to Google !! (don’t we all) and I see multiple post about this and decided to read them all. Hello, Procrastinator! Tamar, Adrienne, and Mai had a lot of words to say about Chris Brown and Kaurreche’s relationship. The topic that they were on, Chris’ relationship fit the details. Playing DEVILS ADVOCATE: With that being said I don’t believe it was respectful for them to do that. They are celebrities and celebrities will always get bashed but if KeKe Palmer had a “Gold Diggers” segment on her show and mentioned Vince and Tamars relationship she would throw a lot of shade because she would be offended. Eventhough Tamar would try to shrug it off in her Nice/Nasty way, she would be offended. Saying that, I understand where Chris Brown is coming from and he felt the need to say something back. The way he said it was just a disrespectful as what they said but that is his opinion, his instagram, his career. One thing that I have learned is that publicity is good, good or bad and honestly The Real is a good show but is it really getting as high ratings as expected? Prob not!! So to bash Chris Brown gives them that, it goes with their show and for Chris Brown to lash out about it shows how “bad of a person” he is. So either way The Real wins. On the topic overall, I don’t think Brown is bad for Kaurreche, he has his moments and he did leave her once for Rihanna but I believe overall they are good for each other. He seems happy with her and she seems happy with him, no extraness included. “What would Beyonce do?” No comment!!

Peace, LOVE, and Chicken Grease

Make sure nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what’s good for each other and for everyone else

THE BORGIAS (Season3)

I was recently captivated by the over complex drama of The Borgias. There is a lot to say about the show, negative and positive. When I began watching I was interested in Cesare, he seemed so mysterious and indecent, in some instances. HAHA. His character development was constantly inclining and that kept me in tune with the show. Cesare’s relationship with his sister was very loving, in the beginning, he cared about his younger sister and it was enticing but as Lucrezia failed more and more in her relationships you could slowly see the siblings relationship turn faster, it was a surprise but I wasn’t totally taken aback when they had sex. I was surprised that she initiated, in a sense, and not Cesare. (haha, weird) So as Cesare goes on protecting his sister and finding his fathers forgiveness he becomes this great man to do great things. The ending for his character left me pleased but I didn’t like his wife, I don’t understand why he had to marry ( and that is not just about my obsessive crush). Cesare Borgia was a free spirit and marriage, although not seen much in the show, took a small part of imagination. Lucrezia was so full of herself that you would almost call her naive but she grew up when she got married and began to use her brain and understand her brother can’t paint the entire world with rainbows. She was this amazingly witty woman that really only cared about herself, her son, and her brother- in that order (the son and Cesare was probably in competes) She understood what to do to keep her entire family whole and no one was going to stop her from doing it. Her character was very empowering. Dear old Juan, made my last nerve wither away. He felt forced into the show (come to think of it, it wouldn’t be the same without him meshing the tithes between different family relationships. . . . ) His character was over acted, he longed and talked about being this mighty man that would do anything to protect what he holds dear but in honesty he was a scared little boy, he was more naive than Lucrezia! When Cesare killed him, I clapped in happiness. He was dragging on, a drunk that needed to be rid of. If he didn’t die I most likely would’ve stopped watching the show. (ugh) Now, the Pope, Vanozza, and Giulia were spectacular when needed. Vanozza was this strong willed woman who didn’t need a man to complete her, she was beautiful. Even though the Pope “left” her she stomped her feet for a short while and said “fcuk it”! haha. At first I thought I was going to dislike Guila but later as her and Vanozza developed that very small relationship I decided not to hate her but not to like her either way. And the Pope and all his deceit. This man drove his kids to all that they were. He didn’t care about anything but his security as Pope. But he did love his family, blindly, and that was shown throughout the seasons. And lastly MICHAELETTO ( he deserves capitols) man oh man! Him being Cesare’s right hand kept Cesare on top, it kept him witty and dependable because he knew he would always have Michaeletto to catch him if he ever failed. That relationship was strong which helped Cesare build it all. When Michaeletto killed Pascal I was so torn for him. LOL. “no I wasn’t ready!!” He loved him and Michaeletto was such a loyal person that for him to be deceived was unbearable a literally broken heart. When he came and gave Cesare hope in defeating that Sforza lady (spits) I was in awe. haha. The ending was a happy one, as happy as it could be. Even though it was canceled it left you wondering about how Lucrezia and Cesare would display their relations, how the Pope was going to ensure this monarchy, if the youngest brother was doing well. Everything was up in the air but then it wasn’t because their Borgias, so it’ll all work out.

Peace, Love, and Tranquilizers.

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. – Matthew 7:7

College or Experience??

fashion cap

Being in the fashion industry has its ups and downs (if you can’t handles The Devil Wears Prada, you shouldn’t be in it) Everyday something similar happens, it’s not a fluke and it doesn’t at all slow down. Just as models are in competition of one another, it’s just the same behind the scenes. Women and men are always scratching at the tippy top of the pyramid and when you get there you have to kick everyone else down to stay. It seems surreal but this is experience that I am typing. So about getting to the top. . . . .now a days some people believe that experience trumps text book knowledge. I see how that is relevant, when you are working you want someone who knows what they are doing, who understands it because they’ve done it. But I do believe text book knowledge is just as important. You need those discussions in class, the wisdom that teachers can you, and text book knowledge. It’s an opinion and people will disagree. But my generation is spending so much money on college and working minimum wage jobs because they have no experience. They spend all their time focusing on getting out of college early and forgetting that you now need more than a degree. I recently did an interview and the interviewer told me she has been at the same job for the past three years and she left school because it was too expensive and she was content with where she was. Thats fine and dandy too but understand where you want to go, if you don’t know you will waste your time in this industry. Some people will say you need schooling others will say intern more and you will get entangled doing so much and years will have gone by before you realize you haven’t benefitted at all. In my opinion, go to school and work within your industry or at least intern, having prior experience on your resumé to go along with your degree is a must now.

6′ platforms

Walking,  thinking aimlessly
I look up to see you
Standing, talking. . . .  I remembered your smile
As someone else gets my attention
I grab yours
A moment of sight
I reminisced about it all.
Your eyes told it to me a million times over
I gave my attention elsewhere
. . . . . Before we went past a moment

SAMCRO

So as we have about a month left until the series finale. . .  I cry inside.  The first seven episodes have been drama filled, obviously. I’m ready for Juice to spill the juice,Gemma needs to DIE!  & Niro needs to get with Wendy, I see it coming. Others may not but we can see and HEAR(cause he always saying it) how tired he is of the “thug” life. Hehe. I like how the end is starting but I really feel as if Jax’s character is just gone *poof* went out the window. And I get it, his wife was murdered he found her mutilated body and cried over it but I miss that passionate Jax (R. I. P). So when is Unser going to realize he should’ve been left?? In truth, I’m glad they’re ending the show, there is nothing else to write about.  But I’m more than excited for these upcoming weeks because there are a lot of “club secrets”  i.e. Gemma and her bullshit.  So if you watch the show tell me what you think.

And remember God has bigger dreams for you than you have for yourself.
Toodles✌
