I've missed you all terribly. I've been in bed for what seems like the better part of January with bronchitis and I'm finally getting out from under it. I've never had bronchitis before and oofhh it's been nasty. I've also been staying away from social media because these past few months have been heavy, HEAVY. I'm extremely passionate about protecting and supporting human rights. I can't not do anything and a Facebook post is far from enough for me. I'm putting together a theatrical piece with my production company about different experiences in this political climate. I'll keep you updated on it, it's happening soon! I'm trying to let you guys in on more of my life. I find social media to have been very regimented and boring, I need to have more fun with it. SO I'm going to be more personal, less edited, less posed, which I love babes!! I think through these heavy times, that's how we overcome, by connecting more. That's a goal for 2017!

On to outfit details: I've been searching, SEARCHing for satin plus dusters (Have you noticed?!) and thank goodness Nadia and Fashion Nova got me. This pastel pink duster I love, it's the perfect thing to throw on to elevate and outfit. I'll link it under photos, use my FN code for discounts (BWORDXO). I wanted a leggings set to wear under so I made my own. This leggings were $4 a pair at Charlotte Russe so I bought two pairs and cut one into the tube top and chocker. I love making my own clothes honestly. Expect more of that, if you haven't noticed already haha. 

Hope you're doing alright babes! Keep your heads up and keep being the nasty women I know you are ++

Honey Pot

It's 2017 bitches! How are we feeling?!

I look up to a small group of influential women. I'm writing this blog post listening to an acoustic recording of Lady Gaga singing Imagine, while a Barbra Striestand poster watches me from my wall; Lady Gaga, Barbra Striestand, Oprah and Nadia Aboulhosn. These women, amongst others, have been some of my greatest inspirations, keeping me constantly motivated. Nadia came out with her own line and I jumped on it, like this was my long time friends collection drop. Nadia has changed the game, all while changing women's lives and I'm sure she doesn't even know how far she reaches. I read her blog everyday after I discovered it in 2010, for tips on confidence, inspiration and all around boss babe motivation. She was unapologetic and I loved her for it.

Today is my two year anniversary of The B Word and I'm in awe of where we are. I started because I loved inspiring and empowering women through fashion. Blogging and styling is also a creative outlet and an expression for me. I can't thank you all enough for rocking with me and I can't wait to see where this year takes us! I want to get back to what made blogging fun for me, which was creatively styling. So expect more of that 2017! 

Thank you Nadia for years of inspiration and for a dreamy coat! Thank you bossed up babes for continuing to fight for what you want in a world that usually tells us no, and thank you readers for your notes, emails, messages you keep me inspired, always ++
