OOTD - Black Swan

It honestly wasn't my intention to channel a gothic ballerina of some sorts, was stumped for what to wear to work on Monday and as black is always a safe option I went for it. Plus I love updo's and whenever I have my natural hair out I like to show off le visage without the acres of weave usually hanging around it.

Check out my mean mug a la Wednesday Adams....

giving 'em face like Tyra, Miss J. and J. Alexander were right there cheering me on....


H&M sheer pussy-bow blouse; H&M trend high-waist full skirt; Salvatore Ferragamo bow pumps; Revlon Lipstick in 'Black Cherry'

A very convenient and infrequent breeze blew just then and as a result of my having no stamina I sort of moved with the wind and stumbled into fierce territory.

Lol.

I've had this skirt since 2008 and I remember when I first got it, I was visiting my friend Nneka in NY and after every day of shopping I'd come home to Harlem and show off my purchases and I rememeber her going "you're never going to wear that".

Well boo to you Nekky baby, I'm still rocking it 4 years later, best $60 I ever spent.



Love and light beautiful people xx

    1. Lool!

      It is o, most people are pretty casual but I've never been able to dress up for work before. At my last job I wore white and black most of the time so I'm really enjoying this.

      I have a channel o but there's just one video on it, uploading videos is just sooo long. I'll think about it sha.

      Thank you!

    1. Lol, thanks boo

      Its not easy o, if I don't put my hair in protective weaves it would be all over the floor. My hair grows because its not out all the time. Limit for this hair now is like 3 weeks or a month and it'll be back in a weave sharply.
