Happy MLK DAy!!

Today is the day that we celebrate the work and achievement of Dr.Martin Luther King Jr... "I Have A Dream"... "Free At Last"... Those are phrases that one cannot utter with out the association to Dr. King.

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies
hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction....The chain reaction
of evil--hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars--must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of

Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength To Love, 1963.

I respect all that he stood for and all the sacrifices that he made. You'd be silly not to ask yourself "Where would we be if Dr.King had not sacrificed his life for my Civil Rights?"  and  How can I add to his legacy?

...I ran across this T-shirt and felt it could serve as a little reminder on where we came from ,where we are and were we need to continue to go!

Daily Fashion Rant

So there is an individual (leaving out names to protect the innocent) who calls me up for wardrobe advice at least once a week.  I know this is my "fortay", being blessed with the fashion insight ,know-how, and KAPOW!! on everylevel, but questions like "what shirt to wear with these blue jeans?" is just insulting.

This just lead me to todays Fashion Rant! 

Some people believe that in order to be fashionable, you have to "break the bank"... and spend exorbitant amounts of money on garb....
When in actuality, you can be the baddest creature to walk in the front door dressed in an ensemble costing less than 20bucks!  It's your persona/personality/energy/mojo that is golden.

The KEY in being "fashionable" is being able to build your wardrobe with solid TIMELESS pieces platformed by FIT & expressive of your LIFESTYLE!
