Lingerie to street style

I kept seeing this trend of maximizing the use of lingerie outside of sleep wear. At first I was skeptical because how could something that is either frilly, skimpy, silky and laced up pieces of clothing be appropriate enough outside of the bedroom.

…Then a rich deep purple silk high low with black laced cups changed my mind. It is gorgeous on its own but as I layered it with a printed black and white flowly top secured with a black broach on a pair of black cowboy boots. My hair twisted up similar to Chun Li from Street Fighter.

My fashion looked like a hodge podge of confusing elements but it worked! I┬ádefinitely made a statement at a party because I didn’t show up in casual beach wear like everyone else.

I can’t wait to style up this sky blue cupped frilly baby doll lingerie this weekend. Its fun knowing you can enjoy lingerie wear outside of bed.

Eeeek!!!! I got my first gray hair!

This morning, I was busy doing my normal routine but I took a double take as I stared at the mirror. Staring back at me is a reminder of my dwindling youth, a single strand of gray hair. Just my luck to see one, a month before I turn another year older.

I heard rumors of plucking it would only make it spread more gray hairs or something to those lines so I kept the strand, hid it in between locks of hair. As if “drowning” it in more hair would make it go away. Silly!

Truth be told I have virgin hair, meaning I never had it chemically treated to a different shade of color from my natural hair tone of black. I blame and thank my mom for it because she emphasizes natural beauty to be the most beautiful. Of course hearing it initially when I was as a teenager did not make sense just because everyone else is doing it besides me.

I have to say that the older I get, her beliefs does ring true. Plus, it saves me a LOT of money so cheers to you mom!

Belated Happy Mother’s Day!
