Classic, Simplistic, Woman Like, Stylish and she is Tracee Ellis Ross

by EkiuwaJ

For as long as I can remember, it was her drive, her presence and her ULTIMATE lady like ways that kept me loving her more and more each time. Before falling for Tracee, Joan Carol Clayton stole my heart in the eight year sitcom Girlfriends. Joan was witty, stylish, nagging, and a GREAT friend. Joan was the friend I always wish I had, but never could quite find. So Joan will always be my friend in my head. Elle oh Elle.

Here’s why we love Joan Carol Clayton so much, or should I say Tracee Ellis Ross…;)

Inspiration Mondays|Teyana Taylor=DOPEness at its BEST

by EkiuwaJ

Many were raving way before My Sweet Sixteen, but it was then where she made her debut to the world! Many didn’t understand her in and still don’t, but who cares! Teyana is one in her own, she creates her style instead of waiting on trends! From the WILD BEAU hair to the ONE of a kind clothing to the stunning voice and dance skills that could would have many breathless, it all makes her FAB! She’s positive, passionate, and POSH! To know Teyana is to love her, to not know her is to love her as well, cause there is always someone inspired by her ONE OF A KIND Style!

Inspiration Mondays|Vanessa and Angela Simmons ‘Pretty, Posh, and Pastry!

by EkiuwaJ

They’re YOUNG, AMBITIOUS, FAMILY ORIENTED, and They’re the Simmons Girls! Having the  ‘Simmons’ name wasn’t enough for them, they wanted to have something of their own, So they stepped out and MADE A NAME FOR Themselves! Pastry, which is a shoe line that now carries apparel as well and MUCH MORE. How can one not be INSPIRED! I most certainly am! From their tweets to their reality show to the way they carry themselves!

Another thing I love is that whenever Angela and Vanessa are spotted out by the Paps, its always something POSITIVE, What can anyone say bad about these Girls! They’re YOUNG and LIVING the LIFE they ALWAYS wanted!

Whether its getting caught by paparazzi or a photo-shoot! Rihanna goes EXRA HARD! She’s BOLD, BRAVE and BEAUTIFUL! Inspired much? One thing, I’ve been saying for years and years to come is, BE BOLD enough to be you! If you feel like wearing different patters in one day, cool! It ONLY Matters when you are comfortable and when you are being YOU! So with this being said, let someone else inspire YOU, to be YOU!
