“Come through Jesus” First Quarter 2019 is over. The tests kept coming the entire quarter but if there’s anything I know, it’s that God is able. The passing of rapper/businessman/community leader Nipsey Hussle over the weekend has shaken hip hop and black culture to it’s core. Nipsey was a widely respected pillar of the southern L.A. community. Sending prayers go out to Lauren London and her children.Tragedies like this are often a reminder to squeeze my own black man a little tighter at night. Living life to its fullest and loving like there’s no tomorrow are priorities this year. So is dressing like every street is a catwalk. Speaking of catwalks, I finally took this big girly pink tulle skirt for a spin!
In case you haven’t noticed, pink is quickly becoming a closet staple in my wardrobe. Twenty years ago that statement would be laughable. I purchased the skirt on a random trip to Old City’s Smak Parlour and fell in love. The long length and the tiers really caught my eye because it features a true waist which lends itself to crop tops in the summer. Styling this with various jackets and accessories will be loads of fun.
This time I chose to pair the pink tulle with an 80s Cosby sweater (is that reference tacky or nah). Removing the stiff shoulder pads from this $3 sweater was a good idea. When my first choice of blouse didn’t fit I decided to do a Denise Huxtable and opt for a baggier top. The loose, comfy fit adds just the right amount of chill to this pink tulle and its metallic design throughout made accessorizing a breeze. My trusty Zara t-straps with matching envelope bag did the trick.
We shot this look on the coldest day of the week with winds blowing like crazy. Needless to say my feet were freezing but we go the shot LOL. I’m pleased with the finished product and I hope you are too. So how was your first quarter? What was your favorite part? Leave me a comment below!
