MY STYLE FIX: LEATHER MINI DRESS

Let me be the first to say that like Michelle Obama, Anna Wintour, and Kate Middleton, I too don't have any qualms about repeating an outfit as long it's cleaned accordingly, and bares no evidence of the drunken debauchery that went down.  
If it's good enough for those highfalutin broads with their disposable incomes and designers at their beck and call, it damn sure is good enough for my broke, struggling, barely making the rent, robbing Peter to pay Paul ass. 
Although I would love to be draped in a brand new couture gown and dripping in diamonds every time I left my house, that shit will never happen even if I took up residence on the local corner or purposely by accident leaked my own sex tape, as the girth of my backside certainly doesn't command millions.   
 
As such, by default, I'm left with making the best of what I got, which often means that things will be repeated, and worn within an inch of their lives in many cases, like this little number that made an appearance at many holiday parties and events last month. 
The point is there's no shame in my game as there's no sugar daddy in my life. Until then, I'll continue to focus on whether the outfit I'm wearing looks good on me as opposed to whether it's brand new.

    1. Aww...Thanks! These ankle boots are one of my favorite items of the season. I love them primarily because they are so unique while still remaining classic and chic. The versatilities that they offer is one of the main reasons I'm always wearing them. So glad you love this look, and the booties as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by. Xo

  5. These are the type of fashion statements that I love to make! These photos also reflect the importance of adding nice accessories to complete your ensemble. Don't be afraid to spark up your mini dresses with colorful chunky necklaces, belts, and handbags. They certainly add a nice touch to my outfits!
