Blessings for my new yr

My birthday was last month and I’m still assessing my intentions for my new yr. I had a birthday photoshoot featuring some of my latest designs and it was such a moment of pride for me.

The photoshoot meant a bit more to than my personal new year, but also everything that happened thus far that got to this point. Honestly I’ve never been one to celebrate my own victories, but that ends now. I’m making it a point to take a moment not only for praise but to reflect as well. I mean even if I wanted to take a pause to do a little victory dance theres nothing wrong with that either, it’s about time I celebrate the frustrations I overcome. Every moment counts #NoteToSelf πŸ“

The inspiration pulled for my Peau de Soie Satin gown, was #Garnet has the power to bestow eternal happiness, health and wealth, this #Aquarius birthstone develops confidence and self- esteem into the life of the wearer resulting in success and fulfilment of all desires.

My second look was an Ankara bustier complete with boning complimented with skirt pattern cutouts all thoughout.

This Ankara skirt was so much fun!! One of my top garments I ever enjoyed designing.

I will sure some intentions I currently have for my new year:

1. Continue to celebrate my personal victories, both large and small

2. Remain focused in all aspects of my creative process

3. TRUST THE PROCESS!!!

As always, thanks for stopping by,

Natural Hair is So “Unprofessional” -Excuse you WHA?!?? πŸ’

So glad we’re speaking on it. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Way too often we aren’t seen as “ideal candidates” based primarily on the appearance of our hair. Being deemed as unprofessional I still am perplexed about what my fro has to do being able to do my job.

As a pharmacy technician, the pharmacist would say my curls were a distraction & weren’t professional. Which was odd cause our customers loved my hair & would receive several complements daily. What my hair had to do with processing prescriptions, I could never answer. Aside from it being hate & an unjust bias. Because when other girls would come in with their curls laying down more against their backs; nothing, No complaints.

My hair is anything but unkept & “unprofessional” you unethical bitch. I wish anyone step to me with that type of nonsense. {#LetaBitchTryMe} my natural hair has nothing to do with my work ethic, duty capabilities, & job performance. Why should we have to hide the true essence of who we are to conform to a standard we don’t fit in, {square peg in circle complex}. & I’m not referring to showing up to your work place in sweats & a tank top or tight mini skirt…..
