Y’all know I love highlighting black woman and WOC owned businesses, so when I had the opportunity to learn more about style guru Glendine Mason and her clothing store, Cayjor Boutique, I jumped at the chance—especially since she’s having a pop-up event this Black Friday weekend!
Last week Pittsburgh had the pleasure of hosting its very own fashion week to highlight and set new standards for the city’s fashion scene. The celebration consisted of three fashion forward events throughout downtown Pittsburgh. Ya girl was able to attend two of the three events and get all the info about Pittsburgh’s up and coming fashion elite. I won’t lie, this blog is a lot of pictures, but its fashion week…I mean what other way should I go about this?
My 29th birthday was this week and it prompted me to do some self reflection. This is the first time in a long time I don’t feel any pressure to be something I’m not. In fact, this is the first time, to my recollection, that I am completely uncomfortable and in tune with my truth and it feels great.
It is legit August. School is in session, buses are on the road again and the weather is starting to cool. How did all of this happen so quickly?! As happy as I am to welcome fall –and fall fashion back to the scene, I realize sometimes it can be difficult to plan an outfit during transitional weather. So let’s talk about one of my go to outfit choices for the fall: Jumpsuits!
If all the raindrops were maxi skirts and crop tops, oh what joy that would bring! This post is filled with nothing but good summer vibes. It reminds me of only the happiest thoughts possible…to the point I feel like I am a kid actor on Barney, joyfully singing with the purple dinosaur himself. More and more, I have been trying to dress outside of my comfort zone as part of my journey to body acceptance and self-love. This summer, I have felt most confident, most beautiful, and most comfortable in maxi skirts and crop tops.
I’ve been seeing the new brand SheIn all over my news feed recently, so I had to check out the hype. Plus sizes at a cheap price that are cute and good quality?! This can’t be real….
