Black & Gold Classic - A Thick Girl's Closet

Black & Gold Classic

1:15 PM

Fashion is all about making it work. As I was trying to find an outfit to where to the Eddy & Bri event, I knew from the jump that I wanted to wear this oh so fantastic sweater I found in my mother's closet. But of course I had not idea what bottoms. But the skirt I had in mind, was to long. So i had to have a DIY moment. So long story short a little bit of time, my 2 hands and safety pins and viola!

This outfit gave me more attention that I bargained for. I guess its the idea of my short skirt with the stockings and wedges. I mean hey I was feelin myself something serious lol
Oufit Details:
Top: Mom's
Skirt: gift from my mom (Tahari
Wedges: Shoedazzle
Bag: Thrift store
Jewelry: various places

Yes I know you can see the top of my stockings. It was intentional but I kinda liked it! made me feel daring and sexy. Shouts of out to CVS!

I am so in love with this shirt. One day I was at my moms house and I just couldn't help but go through her closet and found this little jem. I mean really how fantastic is this!

 Lately Janelle Monae has been my hair-spiration. I'm always looking for a reason to wear my hair in a pompador!
What do you think? Until next time ladies.
