Hey girl hey! So, I know what you’re thinking, Does she have on another suit?? And the answer to that is YES! Lol, I do but I have my reasons for it. Aside from the fact that I am utterly obsessed with wearing suits I was inspired by our new Vice Present elect, Kamala Harris! I know I can’t be the only one who was ecstatic when they saw that cute little video going around Instagram when she called President elect Joe Biden...
“We did it Joe…you’re gonna be the new president of the United States” I shed a thug tear 😭.
I was at work when the news finally broke and I could barely contain my excitement! After days of being left in limbo I was relieved to hear that Trump was finally getting his ass out of the White House, although he’s not going down without a fight 😒. Whatever your political views are is none of my concern, however, I think it is a huge milestone to not only have a woman as the next Vice President of the United States but a woman of color at that. African Americans went from not being able to vote at all, from fighting for equal rights for decades (still til this day), to having our first African American president Barak Obama to having our first female African American Vice President, Kamala Harris. For me and plenty others it’s a big deal, I feel so blessed to have witnessed such milestones and I’m only 36. To see that kind of representation in the White House is bomb af and I couldn’t care less who disagrees with me 🤪. Do we have a long way to go? ABSOLUTELY but I feel like we’re off to a positive start.
I know I wasn’t the only one who yelled, “Yassssssssss sis, I know that’s right!” When she came out to Mary J Blidge wearing an ivory Carolina Herrera suit, she was definitely giving the girls a look and a word. She delivered her victory speech with class, sophistication, elegance, poise and a dash of sass…a woman of her caliber I wouldn’t expect anything less.
Now let’s get into my lewk! Although my suit isn’t even a fraction of the cost of hers I still feels it’s super bomb and vibrant. I’m not a color girl at all but I saw this orange suit on Boohoo and knew I had to have it. I’m more into muted colors like nudes, black and even white but the occasional pop of color always serves he girls just right. What I liked most about this suit was the double breasted blazer and the slight shoulder pads. Exaggerated shoulder pads have been having a moment and these were perfect.
The star of the show for me were the sunglasses with the chunky chain attached. I’ve been seeing these floating around Instagram for months now and finally got my hands on a pair from Amazon, although they weren’t very sturdy and the chain kept falling off they served the purpose for this shoot.
Aside from fedoras sunglasses are probably next up for my favorite accessory. They are the perfect “you can’t see me but I can see and yes I am silently judging you” accessory 😂.
I don’t know what the next four years will hold but I am absolutely sure that it has to be better than the last four, I’m not at all into politics but I am not oblivious to the type of “leadership” we have in the White House currently. I have faith that these two will do good by the USA and vice president elect Kamala Harris will do so while wearing a fly ass suit! Fingers crossed 🤞🏽.
Until next time
