So this designer is catching a lot of slack for the face paint. In my opioion, it's art. There are various cultures that face paint and the purpose of this shoot was to not only entertain but in a way inform. Let art stand as what it is and move on. geez.
I'm bored out of my mind! I was entering time for my attorney's but only a few have actually turned in their sheets to me on time ( -_- ...makes my job take weeks longer than it really should ). Oh did I mention that I LOVE my new firm. We have Happy hour!! lol Seriously..there's a cabinet upstairs full of liquor and I have a HUGE desk to myself. Not much to complain about at all. The partners are approachable, the paralegals are sweet, and my supervisor loves me. Any who, I should probably find something to do...hmmm..pleadings it is =]
p.s I forgot to inform you! The creamy crack and I have reunited. Sorry Natural club, you can have my lifetime membership card back! My how I missed walking outside without my hair turning into a huge curly poof! I also took this opportunity to have it cut again. Rocking a pixie for a while (So easy to roll out a bed and head to work, no big fuss).
p.s.s I can't wait for my box to get here from China. Planning a cool photo shoot with my new clothes. I'm thinking something really "bubble gum pop" lol...let's see if I can find a few inspiration pic(s):
4:04 PM soooooo, I'm on this website and didn't know lol (**blushing, HARD***..Mr. would be proud lol) ...Click to view site: I'm here too =] http://amateurfashion.tumblr.com/post/3211952906/blackbeauties-jenelle-ashley
In an economy where shopping is becoming less and less of a priority (at least to "most" people)...I have found the solution to our financial style crunch. Enter causewaymall.com! Founded and located in China, Causewaymall offers great fashion at dirt cheap (wholesale) prices! No jokes, I made off like a kid in a candy store with a blind store owner! 18 items including dresses, bracelets, necklaces, shorts, shirts and tights for only... $110.65. With international shipping ($61.14), I totaled out at an unbelievable, $171.79!
Honestly, I could spend that on two dresses and a pair of shoes in America (depending on the brand). Take a peek at a few of my new wardrobe selections...

Online shoppers get their say with Derek Lam According to Yahoo Fashion (SAMANTHA CRITCHELL, AP Fashion Writer), Derek Lam is in the process of becoming our favorite ebay auctioneer, check this out: "Derek Lam is skipping the middle man. He's taking which looks he'll include in his newest collection, all exclusives to be sold on eBay, straight to the most important critics: consumers. Lam has put together 16 looks, based on his favorite dress designs, and wants the public to vote on which five he'll produce — and ship — all before Memorial Day. Prices will be between $125-$295. Among the styles are a shirtdress, V-neck evening gown, T-shirt dress and a sundress. "It's all my aesthetic, but I wanted to do something more accessible," said Lam, whose usual price tags can easily have four digits. Lam said he's a tech junkie. He forces himself not to get distracted at work by Martha Stewart, Oprah Winfrey or Wired magazine apps. Tapping into direct communication with shoppers makes sense, he said. "I'd love to get response from the consumer on everything, and I want to speak to them. I want to explain what I do and why I do it. ... Anything that gets people involved in shopping is a good thing, like the contact you have with a salesperson in a store or being able to touch what you're buying." Crowdsourcing, he said, is the way to do it online. Lam said he's unsure which of the dresses will fly. "There's not a formula here, but I'm very curious. We're breaking the rules a little bit with this, but we'll definitely take a look at what it all means."
This is one of my very favorite shots of Caitlyn. Not only were those shoes TWO SIZES too small, we had to pin the back of the coat with a paper clip to make it fit lol . My girl's a trooper!
