Okay so this 90's vintage shirt (dress in my opinion) I'm sporting in these photos has been in my closet for years. I felt it was time for her (the shirt/dress) to be seen again so I took it out for a spin. I found it at a thrift boutique, and it was about $12 or so. Thrift shopping is my life right now, and because of this addiction I'm saving money and looking good at the same time! If you feel like you don't have the energy to go thrift shopping on your own (which a lot of people feel this way), no sweat. They have boutiques that will do that for you. Check out www.dotherightvintage.com and @shopvintagebowtique (Instagram boutique). They have the best vintage treasures, and all you have to do is wait for them to find a item you like and purchase it. Simple as that.
On another note - I was listening to a TD Jakes sermon on Saturday morning (just a few hours after partying at Zulu and indulging in tasty libations - judge not), and he was touching on the mental aspect of life. He was saying that you have to constantly feed yourself positive affirmations, and that you can't lose your head and let your emotions control your decisions or thought process when life happens. This is something that I try to preach and practice often. I do fall off at times because life does get hard. However, I'm actively learning each and everyday that the more beautiful words I speak and the more positive things I believe, the more peace I have. It's not about getting every blessing I've prayed for, it's about making the most out of everything I have already been blessed with and being confident that I will get all the things I need and more in due time.
Keep your head to the sky my people. It's all good.
