Hope you babes are ready for the summer because honey, ready or not, here it comes. Since I am in Dallas and it feels like the sun is sitting on the light post, I like to wear items lightweight. So, I am kicking it off with this number, a stripped dress and watermelon clutch. I mean what better to have on those sizzling summer days than a slice of watermelon or watermelon clutch? Lol Of course you babes know I am infamous for something eye catching, whether it is a handbag, necklace or earrings. Something must turn a head or 2. This little cutie is by Kate Spade. If you want something classic or off the wall, check her out. She never disappoints! My dress was a purchase from the junior section at Marshall’s 2 years ago. My intention was to wear it during the Essence Music Festival because it was so comfy and it had pockets. The pockets were the game changer. Lol Well, I was checking myself out in the mirror before leaving the house and chile the zipper said no ma’am and broke on me and split down the middle. I was soooo happy this happened at home and not at the concert. I would have been super embarrassed! When I returned to Dallas, I threw it in the bag for the tailor and forgot all about it. *straight face*
Fast forward 2 years, a tailor and a watermelon clutch. TA DA!!! I was initially going to pair this purse with a pink dress because of course, it was “safe”, but when I put on the dress after getting it back from my tailor, I immediately thought of that clutch and it completed my look. You babes know I like things the average person would think, “What am I going to do with this?’ I mean, who buys a purse in the shape of a watermelon?? Don’t limit yourself, wear what you want. Do what makes you feel fabulous and forget the rest.
I hope you enjoyed this embarrassing story of me and my zipper. haha But more over I hope I was able to give you some fashion inspo.
Until next time,
Love, peace and watermelons!
