Song of the Week Kiss by Prince

I love Prince, he has a certain kinda conviction that only a few persons can pull off. He is very interesting,…to say the least. He has a way about him…I mean, he wore heels and skinnies and he is not gay! …He is very talented and is the man behind a lot of my favorite songs. I am very intrigued by him and his obsession with purple, it is a nice color, but I don’t get it!… I guess I never will!

The song kiss has an epic video, it leaves nothing to the imagination and his abs, is just…ahhh…and that tank top…He pulled it off! The song, underneath his high pitch voice, is a very sexy song. It is the song you listen to when you just want to get in that head space, 😉 or when you want to be reminded that you don’t have to be a particular person, to be a particular person. The song is sexy, but it has an underlying meaning that I can relate to…be you, whatever that you is! And to never be afraid to get your inner self out, as long as you ‘act your age, and not your shoe size’ 🙂 …

Many persons are not familiar with Prince and his body of work, this is your chance to change that… Here is the unforgettable…Prince! (*singing* ‘You don’t have to be cool to rule my world’…)

You are welcome! 🙂

 

The Sheath Dress

The Sheath dress is a type of dress that’s closely fitted to the body, its name is derived from its fit and silhouette. It is relatively unadorned, it usually fall on the knees or lower thighs. It has a straight, simple silhouette, defined waist and a skirt that fits snugly-either straight or pencil. A sheath dress elongates the body and suits just about every body type. It is very versatile and can be worn just about anywhere.

 This type of dress gives the wearer an elegant lady like look that is hard to mimic with other types of dresses. Michelle Obama and Jackie Kennedy Onassis is/were avid sheath dress wearers. They’re able to wear this type of dress to any event and never look dull or repetitive.

 A sheath, because it can be worn year-round, is a practical item to have in your wardrobe. A solid or multicolored sheath is perfect for the office, a business dinner, or even church. A lower cut more risqué sheath can be worn on a date, a girl’s night out, dinner with friends, or a banquet etc.

Here are a few ways to wear your sheath dress.

Layered

Adding a belt to any dress instantaneously transforms it. Belting ads definition and brings attention to and accentuate the waist giving the wearer the illusion of having the enviable hour glass silhouette.

 With Statement Shoe

Any outfit can be made better with a statement shoe. A statement shoe is the focal point of the outfit, it should stand out, as such, other accessories should be mild and understated. A statement shoe gives the sheath dress a more edgy, glamorous look.

Printed

The accessories with which you pair this sheath, should be understated or non-existent. The dress should be the focal point, adding too much of or the wrong accessories my cause the outfit to look frumpy or way too busy.

With Bold Accessories

As stated earlier, a sheath is a perfect canvas (because of its design and silhouette), as such a simple sheath, can be paired with bright bold accessories to add dimension and character to your outfit.

Song of the Week: I Can by Nas

Life, Life….Life is so hard, depressing, sad, difficult, unfair, unbearable and all the other terrible adjectives that escapes me right now….Life is well, life,… it is a roller coaster, it has ups and downs, phenomenal highs and depressing, dark lows. Maneuvering the day to day activities and responsibilities of life can be a lot, at times its feels like all the little things are going to strangle me to death, but, alas,..I am pressing on!

Being able to rise above depressing lows is an enormous feet, but listening to songs like “I Can” gets me moving. This song is very motivational, and perfectly suited for the low times. It makes you feel as if you are bigger than your problems and no matter what, I can, I can achieve anything if I work hard at it…

So, if you are feeling down, depressed and have lost your will to fight, hold on for four more minutes and listen to this song, it will get you right back on your feet and ready to fight again….

….Hands in the air,…sing!….”I Know I can, be what I wanna be, if I work hard on it, I’ll be where I wanna be”!

Hope you enjoyed 🙂 ….Selah!
