Rules Were Made To Be Broken....Sort Of.

You know that rule of fashion where you're not supposed to mix certain colors, black and brown being one of them? Well I must admit, I'm a huge fan of the colors together as long as you do it right. My rule is, if you can decipher the brown against the black then you're good to go! (A scarf to pull it all together doesn't hurt either)

  • tan sweater - kmart
  • black jersey dress - h&m
  • brown leggings - walmart
  • boots walmart
  • scarf - dots
  • earrings - forever 21
  • skinny belt - forever 21
Sorry for the bad lighting. I'm currently experimenting with different spots in my house for the best lighting and back drop.

Ask The Kardashians

  • sweater - marshalls
  • basic tee - kmart
  • skinny jeans - walmart
  • belt - thrifted
  • boots - rugged wearhouse
  • earrings - thrifted

Not That Kind Of Girl

I’m not the kind of girl to think like a guy because I don’t work that way. I don’t know how to not care for you. I don’t know how to hide my emotions. I don’t know what it means to “fuck em and leave em” because sex and emotions come tied together with me, like they are meant to be. I wanted to save myself for someone I cared deeply enough for to trust that he would not turn me into that kind of girl. I made a mistake. I gave him too much credit. I never thought he would be the one to only remember my existence at night, feed me lines to get me to let him in, or ignore my calls/texts in order for me to “get the hint”. The least you could do is tell me its over rather than me try to figure it out on my own 100 missed calls later. Guys, you say you want a good girl but where do you think the bad girls came from? The sudden trend of girls acting/thinking like guys was something I never quite understood. Now I see why. No, I’m not that kind of girl but I don’t know how much longer that may last.

Heartbreak is one hell of a pain to get over.

Dressed To Impress

Sorry for the slow down in posts. I gave up on life on Monday and decided not to do my hair then it snowed on Tuesday so I wasn't motivated to actually get dressed for either one of those days but I'm back now!

  • blazer - borrowed (from maya)
  • scarf - dots
  • black skinny jeans - walmart
  • flat ankle boots - walmart
  • earrings - borrowed  (from maya)
Wore this summer dress today but obviously its too cold to wear it as an actual summer dress so I paired it with leggings and boots.

 I like the distressed look on the boots!

  • dress - forever 21
  • belt - forever 21
  • bag - thrifted
  • boots - forever 21

Leopard With a Splash of Purple

Went out to a bar last night but we weren't trying to get all dolled up so we kept it simple.

  • leopard ruffle top - express
  • long sweater - jcpenny
  • jeans - forever 21
  • kitten heel pumps - payless
  •  earrings - rugged wearhouse
What Maya and Karima wore:

I went thrifting after work today and got some cute blazers, a couple belts and a super cute green top with a keyhole cut in the back! Whyyyy do I love thrifting so much?? But anyway, later kids!

Fat Ass, Skinny Bitch

I've never been one to struggle with my weight. I've always been about 5'2" 135 lbs. "Perfect" according to doctors, friends, and society. Over the past year, however, I've gained 30 lbs. Not good. Not because society says so but because I am no longer happy or healthy. I can see and feel a difference in my body. My clothes fit tighter and my body feels tired. At first it wasn't a problem for me because even with the weight gain I didn't feel ew about myself (even though I knew I could stand to lose a couple lbs.) but around my birthday my mom felt the need to point out my sister's obvious weight loss compared to my weight gain. "Look how skinny you are." She marveled toward Karima. "Not like Jarima. She got fat but you, you got skinny!" Thanks mom. As if I wasn't already aware of the severe weight gain. 30 lbs is a lot, period. I'm determined to get out of my sad ass funk though. Playing the victim is NOT cute. I'm going to lose this 30 lbs by May, because I want to and for NO ONE else.
