30 days of truth: day eleven

Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on.

I would say I get the most compliments on my style.

I really don’t know how to call my style but I just love free-flowly clothing. I love bright and bold color and I’m not afraid to mix and match them. I’m the girl who will wear a teal dress, gold clutch, pink pumps and red lipstick. I’m the girl who will leave the house in a big shirt and tights and pumps….to throw out the trash. I’m the girl who will wear a sarong and Jesus sandals to your BBQ. Sometimes it doesn’t make sense but when I put it together, it works for me.

I’m very Carrie (Sex and the City) mixed with Audrey Hepburn.

Style Spotlight: Solange Knowles

I can’t say that I’ve ever been a fan of Solange but since she’s come out of the shadow of her big sister Beyonce, she’s blossomed it’s a beautiful and fierce young lady. Not that they are in competition but to me, Solange’s style surpasses Beyoncé’s. Why?

It takes a lot of courage to cut your hair, as Black women know. To cut it AND rock a super short do shows that you’re not concerned with what others have to say about your image.

She’s charismatic. Her personality definitely shows in her personal style. She’s not afraid to be different and let it show.

Style Spotlight: Hayden Panettiere

I remember watching Hayden Panettiere in her younger days on the soap opera Guiding Light. I thought she was so pretty. But you all may remember her as the out-spoken daughter, Sheryl Yoast, in the movie Remember the Titans. Also, she plays/played on the tv show Heroes. At 21, she’s grown and matured into a beautiful young woman. And she happens to be a shorty, just like me! Hayden Panettiere is in a league all her own. Here’s what I love about her style.

Day 8: SHOES

Yes, I have a sick love affair with shoes. Recently, I’ve been buying more and more flats. If you’ve seen me, you might say that I should never wear them (I’m 4 feet, 11 inches TALL). I was in Target the other day and my lovely friends helped me pick out this cute little mustard peep toe. AND it was on sale. Yippee!

5 Reasons We Love Rihanna’s Style

Aiight, I know my girl may be a little loopy on the music scene but come on, Rihanna has got style for days. Here are five reasons why her style rocks!

She’s always pushing the latest trends to the edge and rocking it out in her own way. Just look at her in this pant suit. Seriously, she does androgyny better than most, all the while still maintaining her femininity.
