Fall Trends 2013 - Women's Edition

Fall is around the freaking corner. Well, not for my ass, I live in Tampa. But that's neither here nor there. I found this great article on Huffington Post breaking down the Fall trends for 2013. Believe it or not, most of the trends are plus size friendly. Take a look below or at the article for wardrobe inspiration. Be careful with the Fall trend #3. Over-the-thigh boots are not always kind to big girls. I recommend flat thigh-high boots, but do you if you can pull off over-the-thigh boots.

August 24th Outfit

Dinner and drinks with Monique called for a casual outfit.

Click the links if you want to put together a similar look.

Sh!t I Forgot To Blog About In August

 Kimye finally released photos of baby North. I can admit that I wasn't expecting her to be this damn cute.

 Harpers Bazaar set Gabourey Sidibe's ass up! It's sad that a so-called fashion magazine couldn't find decent plus sized clothing for Gaby. It's also sad and pathetic that Gaby went along with this bullshit.

 Super politician Cory Booker announced that he was running for New Jersey Senate. I can't wait until his presidency.

Beyonce cut her split ends, and the world went nuts.

She then threw this on her head a few days later.

Kelly Price duped the entire world. I don't know how she hid her evil ass personality from the public. I'm still hurting over this. 


It was all a hoax! I knew this story was fishy when his publicist said he booked a show.

 Uncle Rush dissed Harriet Tubman in an ignorant disgusting comedy video. I think coke and white women have made Uncle Rush out of touch.

RIP Jett Jackson

50th Anniversary of the March on Washington. Keep the dream alive!

Let me know if I forgot anything.

Just A Thought

Why do people ask questions they really don’t want to know the answer to?  Have you ever thought about that? I'm referring to the question “How are you feeling?” or any question where people are asking about your well being. People ask me that question all the time and always without hesitation respond with “ok” or “fine”, even when that’s not the case. 

Me thinking

Last night I thought about what would happen if I was honest with the world and really stated how I felt. The next time I’m asked that question, I could respond with “horny” or “anxious to get away from you”.  The latter maybe a rude response, but why should I lie when you asked the question. As I go deeper in my mind about this I am reminded of my southern upbringing, where polite always trumps honesty. I can remember my mom grooming me and my brothers about social etiquette and taboos. I was raised to give the appearance that everything is always ok even if it wasn't. This tradition is something held so dear to southern society that it is considered unthinkable to not always have a smile on your face. My mom loves to say, “As long as God woke you up this morning, you shouldn't have anything to complain about”. Well life isn't like that. I’m not always “fine” or “ok”. I should be able to express that rather than giving an inauthentic automated response. JUST A THOUGHT.
