I think one of the best traits I have is the ability to be myself.
Many of you may not know this, and I was just talking about this with a friend of mine on a Facebook post, but years and years before I started doing makeup I had plans to pursue fashion design and attend FIDM here in Los Angeles. I remember as early as 10 years old, I used to sketch designs, dresses, sometimes eyebrows and face shapes, shoes, clothes, basically anything that inspired me. Fashion runs deep in my veins underneath all that lipstick and glitter.
When I was younger I was known for having the most off the wall, and sometimes strange, outfit choices.. In the 6th grade I got voted best dressed, here’s what I wore the day my yearbook photo was taken lmao
From the hair to the folded up sleeves where should we begin?
And on a scale of 1-10 how necessary were those butterfly clips in my hair?
So anywho, today’s outfit post is very reminiscent of my old school says as a colorful fashionista, and reminds me that color and originality still lives in me till this day. Except I’m 10 TIMES better at wearing it now LOL
This outfit is NOT for the body conscious. Warning, if you’re going to rock something like this, wear it with confidence and OWN it girl! Because let me tell you, I sure as hell was!
I LIVE for my girl Nikkie Davis, owner of BubbleBabez and clothing designer. She actually MADE this for me. She is SO freakin multitalented it’s ridiculous!! She also does makeup too and if you’re not following her on YouTube by now you should be!
Nikkie’s line of leggings (Nikkie Nylon on instagram) is doing REALLY well. She customizes leggings that instantly SLIM and shape the body. I think she’s an incredible person and what she is doing is entirely too amazing to not be shared with the world. She also has a line of dancewear and makes catsuits!
When I saw this on her instagram I instantly said MINE MINE MINE! It came in a different color, I don’t recall which one, so when she said she’d send me one this was the colour combo I chose. Yall know I love me some teal if you haven’t already noticed!
That’s my post for today I hope everyone has a glorious Labor Day. Personally I don’t really have the day off (I don’t even recall the last time I spent an entire day doing absolutely nothing) but I’m still feeling refreshed and grateful regardless.
