In My Birthday Outfit


“Go shawty, it’s your birthday — we gon’ party like it’s your birthday!”


Yup, this past Thursday was your girl’s birthday. A year older, more wiser and a little taller, if you include my fro — it’s safe to say, I am not the same girl I was a year ago. I am grateful for all that I have learned about myself and this thing called life this year. I am too blessed to be stressed and to fly to cry, even though it was my birthday and I could if I wanted to. I am looking forward to all that this year holds for me! Getting over the hill isn’t so bad, after all?

Actually, I’m loving it!


Knowing I was kicking off the celebrations with a simple dinner with my beau,

I just wanted to be comfortable & sexy.


not that I Woke Up Like This but it was easy to be Flawless in this Forever 21 ensemble. I’ll be the first to admit, at times I can overlook Forever 21’s teen + trendy choices, especially when I’m looking for wardrobe staples. But, I am happy to report the quality of Forever 21 has changed drastically since it’s emerged on the scene. What was once disposable clothing, has blossomed into a store that’s more permanent!


a gray tee, for me, always gives me the casual cool factor + any kind of leather is a W. 


Spotted this gray faux leather mini skirt on the hanger from across the store, only to realize its faux leather. Damn. It’s hard to find a good faux leather piece because it has to be a GREAT imitation for me to rock. I hate to see plastic looking leather worn with a smile — Girl, No! But this mini is a good quality, that looked and felt the part. It was a party in the fitting room as the look came together.

This was one of my birthday outfits! The beau “rented the place out” aka we were the last reservations at the small & quaint restaurant, allowing us to have a very private & romantic candlelit birthday dinner for two. It was perfect.

Happy Birthday To Me!

      1. I’ve been particularly drawn to their shift dresses and I recently purchased two marled knit dresses from Forever21. I love the fact that Forever21 is carrying more contemporary and minimalistic wear.
