STYLE: Too old for the trends?

How do you do fellow kids?!” LOL! Do you ever feel weird when you see a style or trend that some would call ‘young’?

Shout out to the team at Jessica London for sponsoring my ‘back to work’ look! My previous job was in the non-profit world – very laid back and very casual. Seriously, if I wore heels to work, it was a big deal. Now, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE some casual looks. But I love being able to add a bit of flare too. Now, working at college, I feel the need to step up my game. Students come to me for guidance and I hope I can stylishly lead them.

Let’s talk about underwear! Y’all, I’m mad at people wear the WRONG UNDERWEAR at the WRONG TIME! I’m mad at people wearing too small panties, too big panties, and just sad panties. Also, did you KNOW that you are supposed to get new underwear EVERY SIX MONTHS! Yes, girl! Like, throw the daily panties away and start fresh! So let’s talk about the right time, to wear the right panties.

Around the time when Sisqo sung the THE THONG SONG, thong sales just went through the roof. Victoria’s Secret saw such an increase in thong sales, the retailer was brought back to life!
