I Wanna Be a Classic

      
Yep, that's my goal in life.  I want to be remembered as having style that traversed all eras in fashion.  I want any outfit I'm photographed in looking as current as if I had taken it only moments before.  Don't get me wrong, beautiful poetry is made when people take fashion risks and become pioneers,  I just do it the right way.  Make sure your wardrobe is diverse, but also ensure it will work for you for as long as you need it to.  A wardrobe should not have to be broken down and reconstructed from the ground up with every season change in the fashion world.  If you are purchasing the right things from jump street, all you will need to add are a few key things to get you through that season in style.  You never know when finances can change and you are only limited to purchasing maybe 3 new items, you need the wardrobe to support that, and, if done correctly, only YOU will know!  

Think about serious multipurpose items that never go out of style, like black pencil skirts, the perfect fitting pair of indigo straight leg jeans, a great blazer, a crisp, well-fitting white button up shirt, and plain white tees. 2 pairs of shorts in black and white and a pair of brightly colored jeggings can do wonders for you too.  The only other item I would suggest you have is a well-made jean jacket that only gets better as it is washed.  Dresses are a wonderful and easy way to make an outfit, but every girl doesn't love a dress.  If you are a dress girl, something gray in an A-line cut to the knee is an easy, neutral alternative to black and can be worn anywhere. If I could only pick one dress for going out, I would go with something a little shorter, fits like a dream, and is in a can't miss color.  A jean skirt in a swing cut is a nice alternative to jeans as well.  The items you select is purely a personal preference, just choose items that will go the distance.  Let your shoes and accessories reflect the "moment".

Crystals and Couture

  Those just might be my 2 favorite C words known to man!  With the start of a new year, it's only right I acquire a little bit of both!  I've had my eyes peeled for the past few weeks for all of the best sales; I had my heart set on a new piece of Rainbow Tourmaline and Rose Quartz(see below for crystal properties and uses if you aren't familiar!).  At the same time, I have also been dreaming of some new bags; crossbodys and a satchel, to be specific; a little on the fancy side though.  All of my work was not in vain because guess what?!  Marshall's is now carrying Badgley Mischka handbags and wallets-mike drop...but it gets even BETTER-not one item is priced over $29.99!!  Wait, What?!  Yes Please!!  Amazon has 1 lb of Raw Rainbow Tourmaline AND Rose Quartz for under $15.00.  I also came across a National Geographic Rock Polisher for $39.99!!  Your girl is absolutely THRILLED!!  What crystals do you have your eye on?!  Have you guys come up on any superstar purse deal

Delightfully Disconnected

This idea started in my journal this morning, then I later thought to pose it to the rest of the world...I recently came across an article (linked below the post) on theminsjournal.com that talked about lucid dreaming.  I no longer believe in coincidence, an took this as a response to the unanswered questions bouncing around in my head about what is actually HAPPENING to my mind and thought process as I grow, evolve, and change.  It broke me down in plain English, and helped me gain much-needed clarity on my current situation... What the article basically said, in a nutshell is that we are never truly awake until/unless we are completely focused, and living in the present moment.  The concepts of past, present, and future are all one construct; all existing right now, simultaneously.  In essence, we are constantly experiencing these things both consciously, and subconsciously.  What we do from day to day, is experienced through a state of Lucid Dreaming; a sort of half conscious

The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es

Today's Inspiration: #1 Stunner...Baby The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es As Our Story Was Previously Unfolding...we were standing in front of an establishment that shall remain nameless, being blinded by some real mess. Per our last conversation, this is where the BKs and I were contemplating just what it took to be Barbie. As we were all adding our respective ideas to the mental list, it was apparent, the Basic rocking the charm, much to our disappointment, we no Barbie. This is where situation turned from nostalgic to pitiful. By no means were we gonna let this masquerade continue,  so as real OGs, we felt at this point, it was time to take action. I couldn't honestly, in good conscience, blame any of the subordinates, none of them were rockin the charm.  To keep this official, let's name the leader of the gaggle Skipper, Barbie's younger teenage sister, who just never quite managed to gain the Barbie fame( still waiting in the wings Tho to seize the throne; Bi***he
