I should say, pushed out… but I completely welcomed this. Out of My Comfort Zone. After Jenae Jones got her hands on me and dared me to step out and have a bit of fun, I welcomed this… it was a bit scary, I must admit, but this look, hmph. HEYYY BOOO…
The whole reason of this shoot was to celebrate my blog turning five! Jenae and I had this conversation and she was like “Bish you need to be FANCY! This is YOUR time to bring it in a new way, Fancy as F%@*!” So, we went to work…
Styled with Jenae’s help, with Makeup by Carmella and shot by the illustrious Inez Lewis, we brought this look out, and they wanted me to bring it… so I had a little fun. I mean, seriously, I do not think I would rock a fishnet crop top any other time in my life. So I thought, ‘what the hell, let’s do this!’
Out of My Comfort Zone
In a Rue 107 top and a Simply Be Faux Leather pencil skirt, we finished this off with a pair of heels from Just Fab! Smoking out the eyes, defining the cheekbones, and giving a bold lippie from Urban Decay (WTF), I was set to have some fun!
Seriously, I love this look. Would I ever wear this out and about? Maybe when I was 23… but this is what makes experimenting fun… You remember how much fun, how daring you were, how playful you can be, and how much you may have shirked away from having fun… Like, this is what I think about myself sometimes. I was always showing off the legs, rocking strapless, and rocking the heels… I wonder what happened.
Who knows, but this shoot right here reminded me about this- how daring I pushed it, how much edge I had to me, and as I find myself in an interesting transition to a more sophisticated edge, I am grateful for this shoot and for my friends who reminded me where my moxie and edge was hiding…
Here is a quick rundown of my look and where you can get the items:
- Top: Rue 107 Dark Fantasy Crop Top
- Skirt: Simply Be Faux Leather Quilted Zip Front Pencil Skirt
- Shoes: Heels from Just Fab
Happy Five Years to me!
