Thrifted Thursday + A Message to our QUEENS!

Happy Friday Eve Folks… I just realized that I’ve been wearing “Thrifted” pieces this week. I’m surely not complaining because I’m definitely getting the opportunity to rotate a few item in my closet that having worn over a long period of time. Most days I’m not exactly sure what to wear because the weather here in Atlanta has been extremely “out of ordinary” for it to be August! I can’t believe how cool it is and how much rain we have had over the course of the past few weeks!

I haven’t been thrifting in months… I found myself buying things I didn’t need so instead of going back into anymore “Thrift Stores” I’m going to take advantage of the items that I already have.


Here’s a look at the past (3) three “thrifted” outfits that I have worn so far this week.

 





On yesterday when I posted this look on my IG and Facebook page I was feeling REAL ladylike and my caption read:
Society has our young generation believing that showing A$$ is CLASS but in REALITY a Man will “address” you the way you dress… Respect is given when shown!

~Always Keep it CLASSY Ladies!!!!










We witness so many females that post half naked pictures just to gain a like on IG/Facebook or a Follow on Twitter… I’m thinking what happen to morals and self-respect! I understand there are models and professionals that get paid to do this but what message is this sending to our younger generation? They are our future and if we EXPECT the best from them we MUST show them the best from how we live to how we dress.  



NOTE TO YOU:
I am in no way judging how anyone dresses… To each its own but I’m raising 2 daughters to be QUEENS over here! And, I live each day so that can look at me and honesty say they are PROUD of me. I know I am their greatest cheerleader as they are mine. They are watching me so I have to be the BEST example and Mommy I can be.

Folks are too afraid to be a VOICE but at some point someone has to take a STAND and let our young girls know that there’s more to life than a follow or a LIKE!   


~Until Next Time 


Peace, Love, & Fashion

  5. I couldn't agree more! Some people will do anything for attention not understanding that all attention is not good attention. We definitely have to teach our kids how to conduct and dress themselves in a way that commands nothing but respect.
