Dressing for Me

Sunday I decided to wear another thrifted look inspired by fellow blogger The Fashion Officer. I think I did well for my first attempt at putting together a look that didn’t come from the mall. What do you think?



What I did get was lots of compliments and few stupid (yes, my mother taught me not to say this “bad” word but….) one. I had someone come up to me and asked me who was I dressing so sexy for. WHAT?! *silence*


Let me go ahead and do this PSA for people who are like-minded. I am not going to hoard things and wait until some guy finds me and says I'm attractive to look and feel good about ME. I refuse to teach my son that being a single mom means boring, waiting and that he’ll only find completion with another human being. 



Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, I hope you enjoyed the rest of the look. I included a shot of my photographer. He’s the most amazing guy ever!

Thanks Ladies! Gotta admit I have a new "addiction"...(coughs) but will go easy, I promise. If you thrift you must admit in-store don't compare prices.

You look HOTT! Work it, girl! Definitely divalicious! And, I totally agree... dress for YOU, not anyone else. As a mom, you have to model self-care to your son. If you don't care you YOU first, you can't care for anyone else. PLUS, no one will care for you.

And how adorable is your photographer.

Alicia, I'm learning to dress for me and not fear that someone will think a certain away about me because I enjoy looking confident daily as I go into to not only share written/textbook knowledge with my students but as an example of a African American mom who takes pride in her and one way to express this is through my style of dressing. Yes, Mini-me is doing well with our new camera. Guess I should reward him for snapping all those pics, lolol.
