I want you to step into March with the affirmation that you will SLAY this year. Fresh out of a February filled with wonderment and promise… how amazing was Black Panther amirrrrrright?!!! March carries over the promise of being AHMAZING and I will tell you why. Across the country our youth has found their voice and they are taking action. Out of great loss we find great strength. But it is not strength alone that will get us there but the will and the conviction to bring about change. To paraphrase the words of 18 year old Emma Gonzalez, nothing about who we are and where we come from matters but what we do will.
NOW! Let’s talk fashion shop chat. This Spring you will layer and you will layer right. The slip dress with a plain tee is such a grunge era style and it’s making a comeback in a big way. Velvet in this interim period between winter and spring is hot for a hot second. Oh, and hoops will be your go to accessory so get your hoop game right, right now.
Oh, and what am I obsessing over right now you ask? I know you didn’t ask but I’m going to tell you anyways. Rihanna’s Fenty make up. This (super super super talented beauty) superstar thought of EVERY possible skin tone, or shade, and released a soft pro matte foundation that had me going to Sephora on several occassions to figure out my shade. Here is a piece of advice. At Sephora they have a tool to help figure out your “suggested” shade but grab the associate with the fiercest face and ask her to help figure out your tone. But first go look at all the shades and you can usually tell which one kind of looks like your color, and then ask for help. Because as you well know no one knows you better than yourself. Snap ya fingers three times now.
And on that note I leave you. But I seriously want you to have a fabulous weekend. I’m going to have some English tea at a posh place in Covington.
Until the next post,
