Find That Dress!

Normally I wouldn’t do fashion posts with pictures of myself, but as I work out more and more Im becoming a little more comfortable with sharing on the site! I wanted to show you guys two different outfits I went with for Essence Music Festival. Both were dresses. Its always been tough finding dresses because Im short and not a size 0, so its always a challenge. Finding the right porportionate dresses that not only flatter and lenghten but compliment your body can be a tedious task. Ladies out there trust me I know.  I think a great thing to do first off is to go do some window shopping and find at least two styles of dresses that seem to be the most flattering on your body. Once you have that specific idea you can start going to those first and working yourself through the styles and make thing a little less frustrating for you.  I usually love puffy, big dresses (I’m not sure why) , but Im noticing they are not always the most flattering on me. I started trying more form fitting dresses and they actually work.  Sometimes ladies try something out of your comfort zone and you may be surprised at what may appeal to your senses.

I’m not the biggest fan of my arms so I wore little jackets with both dresses. So remember there is ways to cover up things you may not be the most comfortable with, without  showing your favorites. I love my legs, so dresses that allow me to show them are best for me.

I'm an alien from outer-space from a galaxy far away called New Orleans. I love makeup, art, and Prince and wish there was a way to have them all surround me at the same time. I do a little of everything, a modern day Superwoman. I write, I manage, I consult, I just Do, sorta like Nike. I have an obsession with eye-shadow, craft projects, randomly singing to people, pretending I can paint, and just being creative. I have an extensive button and sunshades collections that most grown-ups shouldn't. I live for sales, don't believe in paying full price except for purses, makeup, and spa visits. I'm also known as a nerd with experience all across the board and a couple degrees that help pave my way into the Geek Hall of Fame. I'm just a modern day Southern Belle with many quirks to keep you guessing for days. Just like my city, known for its gumbo... I'm a eclectic soul made of all sorta good stuff, along with a bag full of lipsticks.
