Do it, then fix it as you go. Too many people spend too much time trying to perfect something before they actually do it. Instead of waiting for perfection, run with what you’ve got and fix it as you go.
-From the book, Whatever You Think, Think the Opposite by Paul Arden
Today, the U.S. honors the birthday (which was 1/15) of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a leader of the Civil Rights Movement.
Today we are still fighting RACISM each and everyday of our life. Just by living day by day with the will and determination to be treated with the same respect and decency as the white citizens in this country; this country we’ve built with our own lives, blood, sweat and tears.
Every single day when we leave our homes, we hope that the people we encounter are judging us by the content of our character and not the color of our skin. The fight against racism continues.
In DC, we are lucky enough to get to enjoy all four seasons. And honestly, Autumn is my absolute favorite out of them all. This may seem strange to some because I’m a Spring baby, born in June. Therefore, my friends automatically think that Spring would be my favorite season, but it’s not. I love fall.
I think it’s actually the fall fashion that won me over years ago. When I was working in the fashion industry, managing my Aunt’s Takoma Park boutique and later managing a Georgetown boutique, I was always super excited about the fall fashion as it entered the showrooms.
These days while providing styling services part-time for several DC area boutiques and DC area professionals and working full time in an office environment, I’ve already started suggesting items for this season. Stay tuned for my Autumn Look-Book so you can see some of my must haves and my favorites!
Happy First Day of Fall Y’all
