"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." - Coco Chanel
When you walk into a room and you feel like you're not a part of the crowd, you better change your mindset and just act like you belong. You'll see that by the time you leave, those same people who didn't know your name in the beginning - will end up wanting to know more.
To me, fashion helps make that presence. Why wear all black when nine times out of ten, everyone else will be wearing the same thing. Bring color into your life, whether it's accessories or a dress or even a pair of really cute heels. When you love what you're wearing, your confidence builds and your energy will capture the room.
My favorite staple in my closet is a dress. Dresses not only make me feel girly and confident, but I feel like they capture my personality more than anything else...even shoes.
An outfit tells a story and each time I go to pick out a dress from my closet, I'm reminded of whatever happened when I first wore that dress.
Today, I was so proud of someone very special to me. She got through so much in life and is continuing to do more. Being there to support her today, showed that no matter what challenges you face in life - determination and hard work will get you to where you want to be.
I hate to see when others forget to chase their dreams and postpone whatever aspirations they set for themselves. I have done it myself. But I have come to realize that we should all go after what we want because there is no one holding you back, but yourself.
Congrats, sistah. Eu te amo muito!
