Happy Monday, Model Citizens! Today’s look features a new item I recently added to my collection, this gorgeous, metallic gold belt! I have been seeing this belt on the likes of celebrities like Toni Braxton and on fashion bloggers like Shirley B. Eniang, and I gotta tell ya, they were making me gold with envy! After a few hours of searching, I was able to find one of these belts in my very tiny price range. I payed less than 15 bucks for mine! I love the versatility of the belt. Even though its super shiny and definitely hard to miss, I feel like it can be paired with a wide variety of looks and colors! From a shirt dress, to a midi dress like what I’m wearing in this weeks look, to even a coat! I haven’t tried the coat or shirt dress looks yet, but you can bet your stylish ass I will be!
Anyway, I have been sitting on this dress, afraid to wear it, because I swore that I was a little bit too fluffy to do the dress justice. Then I got to thinking, “So…what? I’m gonna wait until I look like Beyonce, to slay these fashion dragons, like the Godiva goddess that I am?” Naw, that’s unacceptable. So, I grabbed the nearest girdle, beat my face until it damn near bled, put on these here high heels and did what I needed to do: werq.
I’m spilling my insecurities to y’all, because you follow along with my weight loss and diet struggles. You know my stories of trying to be more marketable in an industry where being myself isn’t good enough…even when my looks shouldn’t take precedence over my skill.
I just wanna remind anyone who’s reading this: YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL THE WAY YOU ARE. DON’T APOLOGIZE FOR BEING AUTHENTIC. YOU ARE VALUED AND YOU MATTER. Don’t let media and people tell you otherwise chile, you keep slaying.
