Limited Edition Indeed!

I was going through my email this afternoon and saw the link for this awesome shirt and HAD to have it. Not only because it’s cute; but also because of the saying on it.

Now…I was going to write this semi-long diatribe about why this saying has so much meaning to me and how I embody being a limited edition. Buuuuuut…I’m not going to do that.  I’ve spent most of my life explaining myself, who I am, how I roll to people and at the end of the day…the only valid opinion I need to worry about …is the one I have of myself. I know who I am and what I want. And even that makes me a limited edition.  And I’m proud of that.  So…yeah…ON TO THE FASHION IN TODAY’S LOOK! *muppet smiles*

The ensemble itself contains some of my favorite colors and has quite a few options within the package. There’s this cute top that ties at the waist (seen above), an incredibly short mini that THIS big booty simply should NOT be in, and a very cute shirt dress that when worn with the right boots will just be yum together! Now if you’re big on modesty, it does run a little short, just cupping the bottom, so you can totally rock jeans or leggings underneath it and it will still look cute!

Speaking of bottoms, I had to pair this with my go-to jeans from Blueberry that I’ve had for what feels like forever. With this combo you simply can’t go wrong. Aside from them being well textured and tight-fitting, I simply love the way my booty looks in them. Yup…I totally perved my patootie while dancing tonight. *wiggles all sassy like* LOL

Tying together the look are these adorable heels from Reign that I picked up from the sale they had a few weeks ago (yes, late on getting these, I know. But hey…I still got them. 😛 )

Aaaaaanywho…off to continue being sociable with strangers for a change!  Ni niiiiii…

Simply Relaxing…

A moment of peace and quiet…

It’s rare that this house is quiet. I remember when I used to revel in the silence on my work platform; not setting roots.

I had tried the community living thing before and it simply didn’t work out.  Neighbors stealing my then daughter’s Christmas gifts from under the tree (yes I am serious), higher cost of living and getting less back. It really wasn’t something I needed when my very first children were no longer there. I even went as far as sectioning off a part of my store’s parcel to carve out a little space for myself once I had a second family & later, after that situation changed, I never bothered to try to set roots again. I’ve lived in other homes since, but nothing that was mine. That was almost a year ago.

Now my house is full of sounds from dem babies running around, their laughter, the laughter of my other children who are almost grown and visitors. This house has been given breath; becoming alive. From painted walls and spaghetti all over the floor, to horsey rides, movie nights and food fights in the dining room, this house has become a home.

I know that there are a lot of parents and caregivers that feel so free when their kids aren’t home because they’re always on the run with them, but I’m just happy they have a safe place to come to with someone they trust and a community at large who look out for them when they wander around the neighborhood making new friends.

It’s because of this that while the kids aren’t here this morning, I can feel their presence in everything I touch, in the empty of the house, the birds chirping, our frog ribbiting and the pin dropping. It is the knowing that they are always in our home in spirit and in my heart always that I can get up this morning just before work and simply…relax.

Solo by Envious…

It’s amazing how the name of a piece can have so many meanings, symbolize so many things and still be a standout statement all on its own.  At least that’s what I thought when this wonderful outfit hit my notices today.  Introducing Envious Creation’s newest release “Solo”.

Solo by Envious

The word solo can mean so many things and seeing this outfit sparked every meaning I could think of.  The drum solo in one of my all-time favorite movies, “Some Kind of Wonderful”, sprang to mind immediately.  The opening sequence of it includes a drumming sequence by the movie’s heroine, a girl named Watts.  Watts wasn’t anything special. A tomboy, picked on by even the most dreadful students in school and her best friend, who she was in love with, was predictably in love with the prettiest girl in school.  The best friend, a “loner” like her eventually goes out with the girl of his dreams and this whole exchange ensues about how she would rather be with someone for the wrong reasons than alone for the right ones (again…a reference to going solo).  Keith [the guy/hero/best friend] simply says “I’d rather be right”.  Well of course by the end of the movie, Watts gets the boy, Amanda [school beauty] realizes she’d rather be right for a change and stand alone and yay happy ending.

As cheesy as the movie was (though poignant I suppose for the 80’s), I loved that throughout the movie the running theme was standing up for one’s own beliefs…and not giving a care as to if that meant standing alone.  That’s what permeated through the movie for me.

Now…I’m sure you’re wondering what on earth this has to do with fashion right? Right. So let me get to that.  I’ve been a long time fan of Envious and for the most part, Saya’s designs are pretty standout, always making solo pieces versus a piece in a million colors (guilty!), but even in her individuality, she usually plays it on the safe side as far as color selection.  Her fashions are typically sexy but with that flirt of cute.  Even her edgy options have that “cute” quality.  But this piece…this beautiful work of art…is a standout piece all its own.  The colors and pattern are eye catching, summoning tons of earth tones while keeping the funky edge punctuated by the spikes of metal throughout the dress.  The pattern itself is bold and daring without being run-of-the-mill and cute.  This is a more mature look that adds edge and oomph! in a collection that while edgy at times, can often play more on the youthful side of edge.

“Solo” on the other hand is all woman.  This piece shows a maturity and development of style as it strays away from softer colors or monochrome by adding in a blending of hues that make for something rich and  substantial but still a very wearable piece of art. Pairing it with the leggings and combat boots take what could be a cocktail dress and adds an edgier layer of casual that you simply don’t see very often and gives you a bit of variety in one look.  You can … pair this up with some high heels, ditch the leggings and bracelets.  Orrrrr…you can go total punk rock bad ass and use the look as is. Add that this outfit comes fully equipped with jewelry AND boots and well damn…do you really need to do much else than your makeup and hair? I don’t think so!

I don’t know about anyone else, but to me…that screams rebel, grown up and stand-alone when it comes to an outfit. And is definitely worth its name.  I’m not sure if this sort of pursuit of pattern and color will be a new direction for Envious Creations, but I can’t wait to see what she puts out next.
