Jobs, Clark Kents, and poetry

hey guys. I know these all-word posts are pretty boring but i'll start back taking pictures soon..and getting pics off line and stuff... but for now you're just gonna be seeing these huge ARTICLES with words in all caps... So these past like 3 weeks i've been watching all the seasons of Heroes, which is only the best sci-fi show ever. but i CANCELLED!!!! television people just really don't know what they're doing sometimes. So my marathon is almost over. I've been trying to catch up with my sister who is at the end of season 3 and i'm at the end of season 2.this show really is FYE yall should watch it on netflix.

so i've been trying to get a job since the beginning of this year to no avail. I've probably completed over 30 applications already and it's just really sucky that all my friends have gotten jobs before me when i started looking before them. I think i'm have really bad luck and it sucks.

So i've been trying to write all kinds of poetry lately. I tried writing a rap for school about going to the workshops we have every week, about christianity, about sexuality, how dope i am(lol), relationships, etc. I keep coming up with the climax of the poem, but i can't seem to figure out the beginning of the poem...writing poetry, slam poetry at that, is not as easy as it sounds. I shouldnt be writing with competition in mind, but i am since i want to go to brave new voices again net year and have so much fun all over again..meeting new people and seeing old friends...well thats really all i had to shoes were hurting my feet so bad today i took them off in like 3rd period and didn't put them on after that. Even when i walked to the downtown ymca to my car. welp, bye guys...i just really need some people to talk to and i've heard that strangers give the best advise and can be the best listeners..thats why i started posting again. i feel heard.

Makeup for lost time/ this is for BNV

I'm sorry i haven't done one of these in like 8 months but that last semester of school was ROUGH!! i almost failed spanish...SPANISH!! that should be the class you automatically pass with an A!! but not at Hume-Fogg no no no no no they have to make it like learning chinese or something or russian or something. but that was last year... now im a JUNIOR!! UPPERCLASSMAN!!! 2014!!! WE RUN THIS!! and im takin: PreCal w/ Trig Honors, Lifetime Wellness, AP Physics B, this new AP Cambridge course, AP Lang and Comp, and US History Honors... that sounds real good and hard don't it. lol. But I'm trying to get all A's this year or at least A's and B's. I want to get a nose ring and my daddy said he'll let me get it if i make all A's this semester..that might be harder than i thought it would be but i'm up for getting what i want.

But let's get to what i really wanted to say...I went on two trips this summer. First i went to florida with the whole family...on my daddy's side...not including my great aunts and stuff...and i guess that was a fun trip other than the fact that we can NEVER live together time they wanna go on a trip they needa: 1. try to find a place actually on the beach, not an hour from it.. 2. find a hotel so each family can have its own room.. 3. go to florida for our family reunion instead of going when one of our other families is reuniting... 4. forget all the stupid plans and taco nights and salad bars.

The real trip i took this summer was to San Francisco, California to be apart of Brave New Voices 2012!!! I LOVED going to bnv. I met so many new people from all over the world that shared many things in common with me automatically for them just being there. We all wrote some type of poetry, we were creative, abstract thinkers, and we were open-minded and accepting of all races, sexualities, and religions. we come together like we were family already and made sure we knew it wasn't about the competition, it was about the poetry. I felt so close to all the poets and coaches there...except my own nashville. We were so separated it was CRAZY and DEPRESSING! I was envious of teams like Philly, New York, and Hampton Roads because they were practically in love with each other's personality. We, on the other hand, were in loathe with each other. We talked about each other behind our backs, we (they) talked about each other's poetry, we (they) talked about our coach, who has done all this work for us by himself. If it weren't for him we wouldn't have even been there in the first place...but im rambling. All i wanted to say was that i fell in love with bnv and being surrounded by like minded poets and people that related to my soul more than anything. i sorta found myself on that trip... :)

Open Mics and Stripes

So, I'm sorry I haven't been posting a lot lately, but I've been really tired when I get home after shool. Track is starting and it's really taking up a lot of my time. I don't have time to post everyday anymore, since I have to go to practice, ride the bus and domy homeworkeveryday after school. I really wish I could keep posting and blogging like I did before, but I just can't do it and be the good student and athlete I want to be. Academics is more important to me when it boils down to it since fashion is only a hobby right now for me. I'm going to try and post every few days, but I can't promise anything right now. And once track is over, I'll be back at it. But anywho, today I had an open mic to read at so I decided to not be so layed back like I've been every other day this week because I've been so tired in the mornings lately. But today, I made two new friends and I'm so happy about it. Their names are Sean and John and they area a part of the spoken word group that I'm a part of. Today there was an open mic and I read something and Sean read a lot of poems and he was just telling me that he wanted me to read another poem and we just started joking around and stuff with me, John and Sean. I wore this striped button down top with some black skinny jeans that my sister recently got me. my platform boots that I love, and a deep blue blazer. My sister got me some new cross earrings from Urban Outfitters and I have worn them twice. I LOVE them. A lot of people liked this top for whatever reason, it just looks like a top to me that I just so happened to like.

Homecoming 2012

So I go to Hume-Fogg Magnet High School and last night was our Homecoming dance and I threw it everywhere. I don't want to sound like one of those people, but I love to party. I love the atmosphere and the good energy and all the fun I have at parties and with friends and everything. I'm a true junkie and fun is my drug. I had so much fun at our homecoming. Everybody was giving my school heat just because they thought homecoming was really wack and the dj was really wack. I just said i  didn't care. I went there knowing that I was going to have fun whether the music was good or not and that's what I did. I shook life at that homecoming. Hahahahaha. I threw on two different guys and just dance with one guy who I thought was really cute and he started fanning me because he could see that I was getting hot. Isn't that so sweet of him? But I think I tore that entire homecoming up. Nobody got it like me. Nobody was on my level of high at that entire dance. But anywho... I wore an ivory lace fitted dress with a high collar. I had on a multi colored tartan bowtie I saw at TJ Max and a black velvet blazer to set it off. I rocked these black floral print wedges that I got online and I had on some simple studs. My makeup was done by yours truly. I tried this new purple tattoo ink gel eyeshadow that showed up MARVELOUS! I didn't think anybody could touch me because I was on top of the world. :) So here are some pics that my sister took right before I left.

Saturday, January 21, 2012


I know I haven't been on in a long time, but I just had to take some time off. I had to get a few things in place in my life. I can't just spend all my time everyday posting. I have homework and it's been a HUGE load of homework this week. I needed to catch up with my work. I haven't been doing all of it, and I needed to do it. But this week was spirit week and I dressed up as a doll for monday, which was Extreme Makeover day. I thought that was the dumbest day ever since the next day was character day. Since I dressed up as a doll on makeover day, I didn't dress up as anything on character day. I wore these cute wide-leg pants that I got from Urban Outfitters. They are made with a floral print and I wore them with a sort of orange net tied crop top that I also got from Urban Outfitters. It's see through so I wore a gray cammi under it. I wore my platform booties. Even though it was a cute outfit that i loved, it was pretty cold outside in those pants. haha.

Days of Blaze: Day 4: Ketchup and Mustard

Today was the fourth day of Days of Blaze. I wore some red, wool, high-waisted pants with a yellow t shirt and this new blazer my sister got me sometime last week. It has a lot of sequince ans glitter fabric on it and I think it's really cute. I wore it with some owl earrings and my oxfords that hurt my feet whenever I wear them. haha. I just can't find any other shoes and don't have time to look for them. But I have to cut this post short. Go check out my sister, Broke Fatshion's, post here.

A Fasionator's Fantasy

At night, before I got to sleep
I take showers with sequince and glitter
that goes on shoes and blazers.
My earrings grow wings. Give my ears decor.
Denim blows my mind.
Blocking colors becomes my 9 to 5.
I close my eyes and become famous
A fashionator monochroming my brains out.
At night, before I go to sleep, I dream.

I wrote this today at my weekly spoken word workshop. I'm apart of southern word and we're a spoken word group. If you don't know exactly what spoken word is, it's just poetry. It's poetry, rapping, really any kind of poetry where you're speaking the truth. Not necessarily making it rhyme at the end, but it's poetry none the less. It was really short and everyone loved it, I  don't really know why, though. I'm confident in my work, it's just I didn't think was that great, so I don't know why everyone liked it. But today, it started snowing and I had to leave early so I couldn't really do the other prompt before I left, but I did write it down. And now I just have to write something for it. There's an event coming up that I really want to do. It's called Beyond the Truth and it's basically about things that you learn about the harsh world as you come of age and grow up from being a child and being told things about the world to becoming a teenager and learning things about the world. I think I'm going to write about basically having to transform into a teenager without having a mother to tell me how things are going to be and giving me advise. I'm thinking of maybe writing about going from being a very privilaged child to being a teen living with 4 otherpeople surviving on fixed income. I don't know. Whatever I write about has to be real and something personal to me that really relates to me. Wish me luck. :/

Days of Blaze: Day 3

Today, I woke up a lot later than I was supposed to. I was rushed and I didn't have time to come up with an outfit. I went for a simple look today. My sister got me this blazer a few days ago and I really like it. It has 2 different shades of hound's tooth in it and the shades change on the back. One side is a lighter shade than the other. I LOVE it. I decided to wear it today so my outfit wouldn't be too simple. I wore the blazer with a tan/camel shirt and my jeans with my oxfords. This man at the YMCA shines shoes and my oxfords need some shining so I might bring some money to school one day so I can getmy shoes shined while I workout. I like that idea. Today, my sister came to my school to eat lunch with me. I was so surprised because I didn't know she was coming to my school, she told me she had a dentist appointment. She looked great, too. Everyone looked at her and knew she was my sister or something like that, just by the way she looked and dressed. We dress the same way. They haven't seen anything like that accept for me, but they hadn't seen anything like that that they hadn't seen before. They haven't seen my sister before today and they just knew, you could tell. But here are the pics from today's look. Go check out my sister, Broke Fatshion's, post here.

Days of Blaze: Day 2

So, as you all know, my sister, Broke Fatshion, and I are doing a weekly thing called Days of Blaze where we wear a different blazer everyday of the week for one week and create different looks with each way we wear our blazers. Today is day two and I wore my white shorts that I got from Urban Outfitters with a sheer button down blouse that my sister got from Goodwill for me. I wore some black tights with it and my black boots that I got from Urban Outfitters. I wore this really cute blazer that I got from some thrift store a long time ago and this is the first time wearing this particular blazer and I loved it. I don't nkow what to call the designs on it, but I just think they are so cute. But today was a great day for me. I went to work out with my friend Rachel and that was great. The only downside of the day was that I was terribly tired all day today. I couldn't take 1 and a half hours of class today. I just couldn't take it. I had to get out of it. But anywho, here are the pics from today. So this is Days of Blaze so check out my sister's blog post here.
Keep checking in to Days of Blaze.

Days of Blaze: Day 1

So, I started this thing that I'm going to try to do at least twice a year. I wear different outfits with different blazers everyday for a week. Seven whole days in a row and they can't just be jeans and a blazer, they have to be somewhat different. I came up woth this because I was just think about how many blazers I have and buy, and how many I DONT wear or haven't worn yet. This is my chance to finally wear them all... Well not all of them, but some of them. Today, I wore a thrifted black velvet blazer with my TSTA space t shirt and my black and white polka-dot bodycon skirt with some purple tights and my oxfords. Of course I wore my arm party that I've been obsessed with since I got the bracelets. I toally forgot about any earrings today, but what the hay!? Who cares??? I told my sister about it since she will be starting graduate school in a few days. She's going to school to be a project manager of green buildings. So proud of her right now. But yeah... Here are some pics of what I wore today. Also, I went to the YMCA today with my friend Rachel. We both are in track and it's starting next week on tuesday and I don't want to get caught with my pants down. I want to be prepared for track this year. We have a meeting tomorrow and as soon as we get out of that meeting, I'm going straight to the YMCA to do some running and then lifting. :) But here are the pics. Like I said, I'm doing this with my sister Broke Fatshion. Go see her DOB 1st day post on her blog. : Broke Fatshion
These shoes killed my feet today.
I know they don't look like it, but these tights are definitely purple. :)
So this is the first day of Days of Blaze and tomorrow you'll see what's next.

Gracias y Rosado

Thursaday, I wore one of my blazers that my sister had gotten me on 99 cent day at Goodwill. It was a camel/tan Ralph Lauren blazer and I wore it with a pink Urban Outfitters dress that I got for only $5 during a sale. I thought that was pretty awesome if I do say so myself. \( '_'\) (/'_' )/ hahaha.  I put on some jeans from Forever 21 and my oxfords. I really want to thank the fashion bloggers that commented on my post yesterday. Your advise definitely helped me raise my chin and I love the energy that I got from the words that you left for me. And I think that it's just me being so young and school starting and dealing with homework and being broke(lol). But I was just having a bad night, i guess. But thank you guys for your kind words of wisdom and for the follows. I blog and post because I love it and I love fashion and creating great looks makes me feel good. I don't need to get anything else from it, but to look and feel good. I'm definitely going to try and stay fierce. :)
I was finally having a good day at the "shoot". \('_'\)(/'_')/
I totally forgot I wore rings and earrings. I got the silver ring from Urban Outfitters and the orange ring from Earth Bound. I love them so much. I've worn the silver ring with almost everything since I got it.

First Day of School

I haven't posted anything in a few days because I've been feeling like this isn't going anywhere. I'm not getting anywhere with this blog. Nobody knows who I am, no matter how hard I try, it's never enough. I want fashion to take me somewhere in life, even though it's not going to be my career. I still want it to help me in life to do things I want to do. It could help pay for college or medical school or just help me fulfill my dreams in life that I have. I want fashion to make my life easier, but it's only making me sadder, but I love making outfits and buying cute clothes and I like people seeing and liking my outfits. I'm not going to give up or anything, and I'm not going to stop blogging and letting people see me. I'm going to try harder. I have to get my name out there. I know what I need to do and I'm going to start doing it. I love fashion and it's going to be my supplier of dreams. But this is what I wore on the first day of school, which was January 4th. I definitely forgot to upload these photos. And I'm going to be uploading another for the next day.
I wore a chambray button down top with blue loepard print pants and neon yellow-green sneakers that I got from Urban Outfitters. The necklace I had on is a sort of coral-orange color and I love it and got it from Forever 21. I got my bracelets from Body Shop for another occasion and I've been creating arm parties with them. This was my outfit for the first day of school and I loved it.

Color Blocker

Yesterday, New Year's day, I wore a color blocked outfit that I came up with in only 10 minutes. I woke up very late for church and I had to come up with something really cute since it was my vision to look FABULOUS on New Year's day. So I pulled this together and I loved it. I got these shoes from the thrift store along with everything else. But they began to fall apart as the day went on. So I guess I won't be wearing those anymore, but oh well. At least I got to wear them once and I loved them. But here go the pics... :)

We decided to change our background for this shoot. We took our piictures at the old trin station that was renovated recently. Looks nice now.

New Year's Eve with Sweet Home Alabama

These are the pics from New Year's Eve. I went to the Lynyrd Skynyrd concert downtown with my sister and people were DRUNK and acting crazy. One guy tried to do a crowd surf thing and they dropped him and he was still going crazy after it. He knew all the words to every song they performed and went crazy for every song they sung with his friend, who was clearly drunk with him. But it was really fun and I had a GREAT time!! When they performed SWEET HOME ALABAMA I went crazy!!! My sister said I was loud and I seemed to be on a different note than everybody else. But I still had fun and love the experience I had there and the energy was awesome and I love my city more now. But I'm going to gettothese pics. I wore a deep blue velour button down top with a black and white polka dot body con skirt with sheer leopard print tights. I loved my outfit and this is what I came up with after have a total styler's bock that I just couldn't get over.
I decided since this was for New Year's, I was going to wear all the jewelry I could. I wore all my metal braceletes that I have and two of my rings that looked really good with my outfit and I switched up my makeup and made it more dramatic than it usually is. I usually wear neutral makeup. I wore some glittery black eye shadow and black eyeliner with two mascaras. And I wore my brown lipstick that looks more of deep red than brown, but I still like it.
