Can I please vent?
Lately, so many random people have been coming up to me, running their fingers through my hair.
1. Why do people assume that it is culturally accepted to feel all in a black girl’s head?
2. I honestly don’t even know these people. I can understand some people are friendly, but WHERE DID THE ‘PERSONAL SPACE’ go?
I think my fat cheeks make me look too approachable, they must scream “hey, stranger! Come over here and try to feel my scalp! I bet you can’t!”
Lipstick: Mac Cyber
So, How did I do?
Unif has restocked on their signature tees, and I’m happy that I could fool people that this shirt is brand new. Sharon and I decided to do a little badass shoot
outside of my dorm to celebrate the trickery.
My outfit is basically a re-style of pieces you’ve already seen. Which styled look do you like better?
Is it spring yet?
As a Miami native, it’s pretty hard for me to not be able to wear bright colors and lipstick year-round. I’m so excited that I could finally unpack all of my Spring/ Summery essentials from the lonely bin that has been collecting dust under my bed. Sorry, my precious little pieces. One of the tops I unpacked
that I completely forgot about was a mixed pattern top I had originally gotten for about two bucks at the thrift store, but have been saving for any random throwback-themed party opportunity.
Well, the party never happened. I decided it was time I gave the top a chance.
Top-Goodwill/ High Waist Denim Pants- Gojane.com/ Booties- old
Q: What can you do with two dollars on a spring day?
A: get a shirt from the thrift shop, tie it out, and work it like you dropped big bucks for it.
Oh yeah, and I also found these booties in that bin from sophomore year of high school. That was bin like a time capsule of old goodies, I tell you.

Here’s another Makeover Monday ‘Style Squad’ segment I did with Springfield’s Channel 22. I must say, I’m not as awkward anymore, haha *flips hair. We gave Channel 22’s own receptionist, Erin, a sexy night look. Check it out:
First off, I would like to give one of my favorite Miami Designers Lisu Vega a big thanks for the blouse I was wearing. The print and fringe is to die for.
Like I said in the video, it is all about layering. I got this Moto Jacket at Forever 21 for about $40 a couple months back, and it’s so easy to throw on over a basic shirt, and BAM, I’ve got an outfit. Just like that.
I also layered her bangles (Nefrati’s Treasure Chest) and necklaces for a dramatic look. I’m always a fan of big, gold pieces, and for a night look, it can really grab attention. You can find pieces that give a similar affect at my favorite jewelry store Charming Charlie.
I’m really enjoying this little gig, and I will have a couple more segments before the semester ends. Although between that and catching up with school work that I had to miss because of it is eating my time, I’m going to go back to style post starting this week, I promise! Good thing Spring break is coming up, so I could so a little blog- work.
Are you Feeling Erin’s Makeover?
