Leggings, Crop Tops and After-Thoughts!

Hi Love Bugs!!

Ok, Random Blog talking about "That $h!# I DON'T LIKE!" LOL!!! (Which should have indeed been the Title...but I was Being a good girl this morning! :-D

Anywho, i wanted to talk about these trends that every woman simply shouldn't wear. YES this is my opinion. YES you can go out in Public, where people and innocent children and small animals have to see you in WHATEVER you want to! I CAN'T STOP YOU!! I Know I Cant. BUT I can state my OPINION...Can't I?? YES!! (Its a democracy ya' know! As I Laugh under my breath...lol!!)

SO!!! Let's Start with the Leggings. For those who know me, you already know my General View on Leggings. For ONE the are NOT PANTS!!! This Garment should almost be thought of as an accessory. Something to make that Shorter then short Dress appropriate or Make that Tunic Length Top Acceptable. BUT there are other Factors we need to take in mind...like Body Shape, Fit and SHEERNESS!!! (Yes, I capitalized and Highlighted that last work and put that bad boy in BOLD lettering cause im SO SERIOUS!!!) 


My First Question is do you (And by "you" I Mean violators of this hannis crime!!!) have friends in your life?? Family who cares??? Co-Workers who actually like you? I know yall' are like "Stephanie?? Why The Silly Questions?? Of Course I do!!!" Well if they are NOT telling you that you look a MESS in those leggings, they might not be the best people in your life...Im just Sayin...

Seriously...THIS (Look at the Picture Below...WAIT....Breathe....Ok. Now Look) IS A HOT SMOLDERING MESS!!!)

At Work too?? No!!!!!!  Photo Link )

A Short Shirt is bad enough, but tucking it in and adding a Belt??? I'm Completely confused!!! Well I'm NOT because She OBVIOUSLY is proud " of the 2 Hams Stuck down in back of her Pants" (Comedian  Reference) I wish Ladies as a whole would understand that you don't have to show off Every thing you have to be Sexy! 

 And that Negative, Mannish Attention you get (And Graciously Accept) only makes it harder for Men (Or woman) To respect us and take us seriously! The clothing we wear, weather we like it or not, really makes a difference in how people perceive us! Is it Fair???? Yes and No. If you look as if you don't care about you appearance, People are going to think...well you don't care. Then the assumptions come in (The not fair part) that you are un-organized, lazy, un-kept...you get my drift. When we show too much, it looks like were DESPERATE FOR ATTENTION. Sorry...the Truth hurts huh?

Ok...so You decided to wear the leggings anyway....with a shorter top. Ok, Everything I Wrote Above meant NOTHING to you. Its ok. I Get it. BUT DAMMIT cant you AT LEAST make sure they are thick enough where when the Sun or Bright light catches your better (Or not so Better...) Half that we CANT SEE STRAIGHT THROUGH THEM???? UGH!!!  Really??? I've seen it all. Ive seen bright pink thongs, Floral granny panties...NO panties. I'M SO OVER IT!!! 

Grab a GOOD Friend and have her shine a light towards you or something For Gods Sake!

And here is my Honorable Mention. The Crop Top phase ISN'T FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!
I Don't want to even go into to this...its probably another Blog Post all together.  But Here are some GREAT examples on why you MUST know your body and its limitations.

Ding DING DIINNGGGG!!!! Pic Source

Love Yall!! Pass this on to a friend!!! (LMBO!!!)

All that Glitters...

Good Morning!

I am feeling some kind of way right now. I Feel Like my life is VERY Crowded and in turn, so are my thoughts! So I'm on my Blog today VENTING...out loud!!! This is DEF a Double Latte moment! (LOL!)
You see...my life had changed a lot...Personal, business and so forth. I Got promoted at my job a couple of months back...and I went from an hourly associate who was shoved out the door at 35 hours to a Salaried Manager who work all kinds of LOOOONNGGGGG Hours...sometimes 70 hour weeks...(one week i worked 5 Doubles!!! and got ONE day off!!! ) in this transition period, I lost what little organization I had...i was barely having time to sleep...PLUS I was Attempting to Pull my weight on the #FashionistaPartyShow. I didn't have any time to tend to my OWN YouTube Channel...write to you guys on this Blog. I WAS (and still am...but I'm working on it...:D ) a MESS!!!

And in my personal life (Yea...I'm laying it All out there!!!) I'm struggling as well. I Have no time to see my significant other, because were not "shaking up" so to speak. I Really want to get married...but that's a whole nother' Blog post!!! LMAO!!! I have NO social life and I STILL haven't found an Apartment that I want to move to! my 33 Year Old life can NO LONGER be contained in my little Bedroom...its spreading all over the house!! And Every time I have to urge to "Go IN' and clean everything up, the sight of the amount of Stuff i have to do makes me crash and burn, specially on the 4 hours of sleep I normally get!

All this stress causes me to eat horribly and Shop in what little down time I have...(Is this cheaper then therapy??? Monetarily YES...in the long run...no :/ ) So what a tangled web we weave...right?? Like I need more stuff!!! LOL!

I'm not telling you these things to say WOE IS ME!!!. All I'm saying is that Life throws "STUFF" at you, and being Human Beings, Specially a Female Human Beings, we tend to WANT to do what Everyone expects of us and WANT to be apart of every "good" thing that comes our way. The Reality of it is...we need to learn to do whats BEST for us and know, that its OK...to say...NO!!! NO NO NO DAMMIT!!

I Cant work 12 hours today! I Cant Take part of this Event because I'm Extremely Tired. I Can't do this Project, can I delegate this to someone else? I Cant Make BOTH Baby Showers This weekend...Ill send a Gift! I cant Lend you the money, but I can try to Help you with your budget. Do y'all Fell me????

"Blow Away the Excess!! Some Things are REAL GOLD! Cherish Them! Some Things are Just Shiny and Sparkly....They Will Fade away in Time Anyway..."  -Stephanie Robertson, Life, Beauty and Fashion Blogger

Now my Title is "All that Glitters...". What I Mean is Society makes objects, Events, opportunities, etc. Seam EXTRA FABULOUS!!! DON'T Get Caught up in the HYPE!!! Learn About things for yourself...What may seem AWESOME to another might just be BLAH to you. But know you've Spent you money on the newest "HYPE" Product (Or Your time on a project or Event...How ever it applies to your case) and all you have to show for is a Tube of this "ThisWasSupposedToBeAwesome!" tube of Mascara in your makeup junk Drawer! LOL!

I am slowly making changes to suit my needs. I Let go of being on the cast of the #FashionistaShow, It Just didn't fit into my life right now! Ill miss hanging out with them, but behind the show were business aspects that i JUST Didn't have time for! I Truly wish them the best! I'm also looking for an apartment with SPACE!!! LOL!!! I Need to be in my own place and organize my life the way that makes sense to me! (Y'all Have NOOOOO IDEA!!! LMAO!!! And I need to get back to working out and eating right, which isn't working because my MIND IS TOO CLUTTERED!!! Y'all get the Picture! :)

All That Glitters isn't Gold people! Take the time to sit back and figure out what is truly important in your life and work towards that. VALUE isn't always measured on having the newest of everything on the market...neither is it defined on that notion that "Every One is Doing it!". 

in the Words of Shameless Maya...


I Hope this post helped someone Re-Focus...it was very therapeutic for me :)

Thank you Guys for reading!
