Hey y’all! Happy hump day! Quick funny story about this outfit. I was in New York for fashion week, on my way to the BET offices in Times Square to interview Danielle Prescod for Fashion Bomb Daily’s Black History Month series when this guy blurts out, “You looking good Pink Panther!”. HA! Normally, I scorn men who call out at me, but this was too funny. I had to laugh and simply say thank you. Besides, he was pleasant with his tone unlike the typical aggressor.
Anyhow, I have been crazy busy as of late. Last week, I moderated Cocktails with Claire Boston, her first ever Boston event. It was a huge success thanks to all the folks who had their hand at helping out. I’m also prepping to get Shady Society up and running (details in my about section). I just wrapped up an entrepreneur course I was taking. I want to be successful, so I’m arming myself with all the necessary tools to be a bonafide GIRL BOSS! Speaking of which, a Girl Boss series has just launched on Netflix based on Nasty Gal founder, Sophia Amuruso’s popular book. Have any of you guys watched it yet? Due to my tight schedule, I haven’t had any time to watch, but it is certainly on my to-do list especially since I loved the book so much.
Back to my time at fashion week, it was freezing cold, and this floral satin jogger suit was perfect to disguise all my layers underneath. I tried my best to find a great pair of booties to style it with before I left home, however I was unsuccessful. I had to resort to trekking the streets of New York to find something that would work. I hopped over to Steve Madden and found a nice pair of pink velvet booties that fell in line with my monochromatic theme. The thick heel was perfect for the hustle and bustle of fashion week, so I bought them, and kept it moving!
I have contemplated moving to New York hundreds of times, in pursuit of my career. I have decided that I will stay in Boston for now. My last season at New York fashion week solidified my decision. Though I am a social butterfly, New York has a way of making me want to be an introvert. This does not surprise me as I am able to tolerate less as I get older i.e I can’t do crowds anymore.
After a few days, I find myself getting homesick; yearning for the green pastures at home away from the concrete jungle. The biggest factor, is my daughter, Nemiah. Though I can’t promise that Boston will always be our home, I do have to think of her first when it comes to such big decisions, even if there’s some sacrificing involved. I am blessed with an extremely supportive husband who is always open to the possibility of moving. Thankfully, with the rise of technology, I’m able to conduct all of my work remotely, thus my location is not crucial. Plus, I love to travel and can do so whenever necessary.
What are your thoughts on moving to pursue your dreams?
