Have you ever come across an ancient picture of yourself in your high school year book from year ______( Yea, its been that long, we know..) or a flashback scrawls across Facebook asking you if you remember the time. After you regain your composure from whatever nostalgia feeling that came across you from seeing the #THROWBACK, your attention then is directed to the next important issue…. your style….. or lack there of.
Yea, it can be tragic and hilarious all in one. But the good thing about it is our epic beginner failures in all things cool and in style, left room for improvement and growth. Not to mention, thank GOD for Pinterest and IG style influencers who give us daily inspiration! Because without them………..
Or at least that is how it feels for me..
But in reality, regardless of how non-existent our style seemed back then, it served a purpose.. Hold on a sec, I know you are like, ” What you talkin bout Kiki,” but it did. Wayment… hear me out. The hidden gems behind “bad style” captured in your yearbook or Facebook memories, set me up to be HELLA present and confident in all I do, no matter how against the grain it meant being. And I can honestly say, I benefited from this because it helped lay the foundation to the unapologetic, unconventional fashionista I am today. And I learned these serious life lessons in my style evolution as well!
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS BEING OVERDRESSED
Any time you step out, is an occasion to dress up and show out! Don’t let your best dressed day be in your casket! Let them have it NOW!
BLACK IS EVERYONE’S BEST FRIEND.. Incorporate that bish in EVERYTHING!
Black is a fashionistas best friend, and if you’re anything like us, ya’ll are REAL close.
SOMETIMES, YOU HAVE TO SWITCH IT UP..
HAIR THAT IS!
Change the game with a single style. Plus your white coworkers will be sooooo confused .
FORGET THE RULES, AND JUST DO YOU!
Whether you’re fat or skinny, tom boyish or girly glam… put on the stripes, mix those prints and wear your all white, give zero f*cks and just strut your stuff baby!
There are lessons to be learned, even in our “mistakes.” So even though you have gotten all stylish and in the know of the latest trends, don’t forget that carefree spirit without a care or clue, you had back in the day before the style evolution come up took place, because that is where the magic really happened! And you learned how to be you, unapologetically!
Now, who wants to see more #throwback pictures?? to REALLY see how far by Kikisol has come???/
Until the next time, live F.A.B with no regrets,
