Personal Update on Yanni...

So my luv's it's been a while.

As I sit here sipping on some chardonnay while listening to Dwele it dawned on me that this whole blog thing was a good idea. I mean the feedback has been really good. Granted I need to blog more, but I never have time. However, that will all change after next week.

So I took the ultimate leap and resigned from my plantation job. CRAZIIIII I know. What was I thinking? Who knows lol j.k. At the end of the day I made the best decision for myself and that's really all that matters wouldnt you all agree?

Anyways, with that being said I am definitely throwing myself heavy into this fashion limelight I am searching for. I have a few things lined up which is pretty cool, but ofcourse I am totally searching for me.

I also still need a perm. paid gig while I dip and dabble in the industry.

My life I tell ya lol. It is what it is.

At the end of the day my heart and soul is focused on this industry and being at my job was only holding me back. No advancement, no career just a job. What kind of life is that?

Soooooo with that being said if anyone knows of anything hit a sista up and let me know :-)

In a week I'll have more time which I am very happy about. I have all these thoughts and idea so hopefully I can make them happen.

I also want to take the time out to thank all of you who read my blog. I know a lot of ppl read, but very few follow which is cool. My thoughts and random comments are all worth my time and I am glad you all have taken time out of your schedules to read my insight.

I appreciate it.

The Diva Wears....

What is going on ppl?

So I was out the loop for 2.3, but I got to thinking tonight and the inspiration came along.

I was thinking about this photographer that hit me up today wanting to do a *tf* with me and I have the choice of picking the concept. When he told me that my first reaction was “awww he’s about to make me get creative with this type of freedom” then it started.

SHOES, Shoes and more shoes. These insatiable things can change moods from sad to happy in the blink of an eye. When I looked at my collection it hit me that I could do some dope shoots with a few of them. All these ideas started coming together and this new photographer is definitely somebody I would like to work with. I feel his vision reflects mine and what we could potentially accomplish.

So I'm sitting here thinking about my collection and my theory on shopping came to mind: random acts of buying can lead to the completed piece of a good ‘fit.

Shoes can be the root of maxing out a C.C. That does not pertain to me ofcourse :-/

Anyway, not feeding your way into these pairs of addiction can lead to a broken heart, moping for days and/or extreme rationalizing of why you didn’t get it, why you couldn’t get it or both. However, when you FALL for them its seriously like love at first sight. Literally.

With that being said I felt the need to share a few of mine...
A black and white checkered 4 in. pump with a one band buckle is sophistication at a budget. Simple, chic with some trend can go a long way.

Tan and white T strap Mary Jane inspired 3 ½ in. will turn some heads. These deliciously classy stilettos will compliment a timeless ‘fit.


Let’s not forget the mysterious fabulousity of the satin. These scream sexy, sensual and in charge. A gorgeous dress would make this red carpet acceptable.

SHOES, shoes and more shoes. Sigh...living without them IS certainly not an option.
