FIFTY SHADES OF FUCK YOU.

by Jamila Pierre


Not you, but most all things crappy....unless you're crappy......are you crappy....? LOL! This post and this dress is for those who get me and for those who have a sense of humor, at the very least a care-free bone in their body. All others...I suggest you wait until my next post.

Let me preface this by assuring you that there are quite a few things to be happy about in life, at least for me, I am absolutely aware and acknowledge all of the privileges I have been afforded (no matter how big or small).....but this past week.....?! This past week has been an emotional roller coaster of shit logs being slung in my direction.

 I've done my best to cope with the pieces of turd that somehow still landed on me despite the old "college try", I still managed to get in the crosshairs...my Kung Fu was at about a level six out of ten this week....not nearly enough.

I barely made it out alive this week...but I am alive.

There's this misconception that things shouldn't phase you, that if you give in to the rage or "negativity"...you're somehow less evolved. I think not! For me personally, very little gets to me as far as how people perceive me, how I physically look,  etc..., I really don't care. But, there are still some lines out there that can be crossed and the cup of rage just runneth over. Guess what....? That's OK! Feel all of those feels.

The idea that you should be so elevated that you only see things as a "positive" (even though some things are just shitty...just plain old shitty, nothing more nothing less), it just doesn't sit well with me. I need to be able to see and except things for what they are, whatever they are, and that I have the space to explore ALL of said feels.

With that said, these past few months let alone this past week, has been craaaaaaaaazyyyyy. Not a fan. But hopefully I'll be able to push through yet again and find a way to live with the new changes heading my way.

On a brighter note, I find it to be amazing that there's clothing out there that can express your sentiments with such pinpoint accuracy. 

As some of you might know, I'm an ambassador for the brand CowCow, I honestly couldn't be more stoked and appreciative about it. It isn't every day you get to work with a company that you mesh with so well. I have a plethora of existing posts on the brand and how in love I am with them as a whole, much less for their actual products. 

They sent me this dress (which I selected myself), after I'd already bought its sister of course. When I saw that this awesome print came in black and white...I just had to cop it. The dress just screamed "Fifty Shades Of Fuck You". And guess what?! They have it in a bunch of other colors too. I just might get one for every day of the week, especially because this print is my #ForeverMood. It perfectly reflects my response to the shit that people need to miss me with. Can you tell that this week has been trying...? LMFAO! I can somewhat laugh about it now because life is real funny sometimes.

ANIMAL.

by Jamila Pierre


I thought I'd give you some Island of Dr. Moreau realness in this post, just a hybrid of beautiful and amazing creatures. 

I got this cute little headband for liiiiike less than five bucks in this rose gold and in black, #winning. I thought it suit the look over all and added just the right amount of whimsy and shimma shimma.

Now let's discuss this here dress. 

I am in absolute LOVE with it! I first saw it when Glitterandblazers on Instagram hauled it in a YouTube video. I paused the video and immediately went to ASOS.com and gotz ta searching for it. Sadly...it was completely sold out, a few weeks later I heard the call of the dress and thought I'd give the search one more go. Amazingly, the dress was there in-stock again in every size, in all its animal print glory....you know I bought that bitch right?

It has everything you could look for in a dress without pockets; pizzazz (some ZAZAZOO), comfortability, special details (like the slight eyelash lace and the squiggle stitch), and a remarkable ability to make you feel like the baddest with little to no effort.
