Hello and welcome,
I find myself being in conflict with myself most times. Because I know who I am, and what I look like, sometimes, I look at myself in the mirror and hate what I see. Most people say we were not born to know the difference between race, gender, body types etc. However, some have grown up believing in so many false descriptions of who they are or what they should be.
“Oh, you should not eat this or that, can’t you see your mother and her genes, you will end up like that, UGLY!” or “if you bleach your skin you will be marriable” or “when you are in a room with 6 men, 5 of them will want to sleep with you”. Don’t you just find it funny that your beauty is the same thing that causes people to assume you are dumb? Or being comfortable with your curves and your body is the reason why you should be raped.
So, Culture is the ideas, customs, and social behaviour of a particular people or society. For culture to work it starts with one person’s behaviour which eventually spread like a wildfire.
What is my current culture of fashion? well this is a long list of things but these are a few;
- I am not FAT
- I am not an UGLY BLACK GIRL
- I do not need to be PERFECT
- My style is my STYLE
- I know my pocket and what I CAN AFFORD
- Everyone cannot love me but I a few people who REALLY LOVE ME
Today a couple of ladies said to me they liked my hair and the way I styled it, I extended my gratitude to them and added that natural hair is hard work, immediately they replied explaining to me how my hair is only 80% natural because I dyed it. I was taken aback by that statement and tried to compose my words wisely.
I was so upset by the statement; I really want to know this; does the fact I wear makeup mean am not a natural woman? I really wanted to say more like if they want to be natural then they should strip themselves of the things that make an individual 80% natural. In fact, why not go out naked and let’s all see you in your natural glory, yeah? (please don’t do that)
Hello, In case you have you not noticed, I love my skirts. I can wear skirts from now till thy kingdom come. This is just a couple of looks on how I styled my pleated skirt.
I hope you are doing good, I have been away from blogging for a very long time due to a lot of personal reasons.
Anyway I am back and I have a lot of ideas I hope you would like but for now, it is about this gorgeous metallic look.
Hello, how are you doing? this is just a quick look upload.
