What to add to my shop??




UO Dress

I've had this dress for a long time. I loved the florals, the colors, and the material (it's 100% viscose). I decided to actually wear it today. After putting it on, I felt that it was a bit too short, but I wore it anyway. This dress may be added to my shop (still working on getting it up & running) because I don't think I'll wear it again.

Coffee Talk: Who do you dress to impress?


H&M Top / Vintage Skirt purchased in NY / Madden Girl Shoes

Not too long ago, I read an article about who women are dressing to impress. I began to think...I know why I dress the way I do, and I know who I dress for. But really, who do women dress for?

When I see females in their short skirts, fishnets, and platform boots as I'm driving in to work or taking the Marta train, it's hard to ignore the calls and whistling from strange men (even while they are in their own cars!...driving). Men seem to see this way of dressing; along with the much added makeup, as some sort of an invitation. And what happens when the advances are ignored? They find themselves offended, and start yelling insults.

Although we may sometimes wear revealing articles of clothing, it's not always done to attract the opposite sex. So what does it mean? Does it mean that the way we dress has to do with some general sexualization of women's fashion? Basically what was once considered scandalous is now worn openly in public today.

Or do we dress to impress other women? Aren't women the ones who will be the judge of what you wear anyway?

How about we dress for ourselves...I do. I love how the clothes make me feel, which is good. I like feeling feminine, I get a boost of confidence, and I get to express myself.

But I guess some women do dress for men. I mean really, go to a club on a Saturday night...you know what I'm talking about (cleavage, cleavage, and more cleavage).  Don't get me wrong, there is nothing bad about dressing sexy when you feel like it. As long as you feel good wearing whatever it is you're wearing it doesn't matter what others may think.

Honestly, I don't think about men or women as I dress. I just want to make sure that I'm looking put together, and I feel good in whatever I'm wearing. Even as I post my pics on my blog, I'm not looking for compliments. I'm just sharing with all of you my everyday dress. This is me. I'm usually low key and comfy....but I feel good in every outfit I put on.

So what do you guys think? Who do you dress to impress?

Weekend Wrap up...

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I'm now preparing for the week ahead. Considering the last couple of days have been hectic for me, I've decided to live by Bruno Mars' The Lazy Song today.


Friday was movie night. And I bet you can guess what we went to see. Yep! You've guessed it. We went to see Fast Five. I must say that this movie and the 1st one were the best. If you haven't seen it yet, go! Then wait until after the credits to see the 'surprise' they've left for the viewers.

Saturday was all about my daughter and then my friend's daughter's 9th birthday party. I was the photographer for the party. But first, my daughter had to do a few things, then she had her conference call for AIFW, then it was off to the party (which was an hour away).

So I had taken quite a few pics...here I am

Head to Toe H&M

Here's my daughter....who was the helper at the party. She was one of the kid's makeup artist (there was another woman helping), cupcake helper, and one of the group leaders for the hula hoop challenge.


Here is my friend with her 9 year old daughter Milan. The party theme was Pretty Girlz Rock & all of the kids were to wear sparkly, bedazzeld, tutu kind of items.

Here are the goodies!


Then this young man comes to the house and when these little girls saw him.....they practically ran him down. I didn't know who he was; neither did my daughter. He was the surprise guest. His name is Chris Tavarez and he is a model/actor. He's been on Big Momma's House 2, Tyler Perry Meet the Browns, Avalon High (Disney Movie), and is currently filming another Disney movie called Magic Eye. He's also quite the football star in high school. Rumor has it that he received scholarship offers from Tulane, Duke University, Harvard, Princeton, Maryland and Vanderbilt. He recently accepted Duke's offer. Here is Asiah with him.
I guess he didn't know where to look...there were cameras going off everywhere!

Anywho...after the party, I went home and slept like a baby. It was a long day yesterday.

Today, I cleaned a bit, did not cook, and did nothing but relax. I did go to the Red Dot Boutique earlier (Target).
groovy

That's it!
So what did you guys do?
