Don’t Be Clothes Minded

no shopping

I went to the mall with a friend and she saw some pants she wanted. Immediately, I was like, “girl I got the same pants except mine is Adidas!” When I went home I tried on the pants for her to see. When trying on the pants she pointed out that it still had on the tag. I bought those pants for $80 since September and I had never worn them. I saw the pants on some blogger and just went and bought it.

I went through my closet and found so many clothes that still had the tag on it or clothes that I had only worn once. In that moment the light bulb went off! I spend way too much money on clothes that I never wear. Continue reading “Don’t Be Clothes Minded”

Life is Short, Buy the Dress  

 

I saw this dress on my Instagram feed and instantly fell in love. I loved the sparkle and shine and thought it would be perfect for my 25th birthday dinner. I quickly went to Fashion Nova to take a closer look at the dress. The more I looked at it the more I felt discouraged. I looked at the back and realized it was relatively open. I know I’ve been working out but I still have a very stubborn back roll that does not want to go away. How would back fat look with that dress? The cut is very low which meant I couldn’t wear a bra with it. Where would my breast go? I had never gone bra-less before. Also, I looked at the length and thought my thighs was simple too big for such a short dress. I literally felt like I was having an internal battle.

I am always encouraging people to love their body, yet here I was putting myself down. What I’ve learned is the journey to self-love never ends. Some days I walk pass the mirror and I’m like damn girl have you been squatting? Other days I rather not look in the mirror. As I continue to work for the body I want I will love the one that I have.

So, I bought the dress and this happened:

So, what’s that outfit you’ve been eyeing but refuse to buy cause some part of your body is just too big? After reading this post go to that website and make that purchase cause afterall, life is short…just buy the dress.

I’m Back 

It’s currently 2:36am and I’m up writing this post because quite frankly, I’ve been gone for too long. My absence can partly be blamed on two things. Firstly, the b*tch that is  hurricane Maria. This hurricane came and turned my beautiful island upside down. Life will never be the same and I just couldn’t think about writing a blog post when my family had no electricity or water. 

Secondly,  life happens. Since my last post I celebrated my 25th birthday, moved to a new state and started a new job. Moving takes so much and two months later I am finally all settled. 

The problem with being away for so long is I get stuck trying to think of the perfect post to come back with. Well, this is the perfect post. For those of you who kept asking, “when are you gonna post?” Thanks for keeping me motivated. I’m back! 

Love,

Dee
