Sunday:Odunde Festival in Philly. Outdoor festivals and concerts is one of the things that I love about the Summer. People watching, eating, entertainment and shopping. So many different vendors with a variety of cool stuff to buy. My big sis and I had a great time, as we always do when we hang out for “sister time”. I bought some African fabric that I purpose to use as headwraps (you’ll see it soon on the blog). So many different ones to chose from it was hard for me to pick. I wish I could of bought more to make me a dress or something but I wasn’t feeling ambitious enough to let myself think that I would dust off my sewing machine (lazy, lol). Anyways, so many more festivals/concerts to come this Summer. Can’t wait. Pictures will go up on the blog when that time comes. Enjoy your weekend! God Bless!

Thursday Night: Girls’ Night Out with some co-workers. We went to listen to a live band, “Best Kept Soul”, where one of our patients is one of the lead singers. Excellent performance! Anyways, I didn’t want to get “dressed up” and be overdressed so I figured this look would be appropriate. Something relaxed and laid back but with a little bit of an edge. The cutoffs are a pair of vintage Gloria Vanderbilts that I picked up a couple of years ago. Every time a wear a pair of vintage pants/shorts I just can’t help but wonder how in the world could all the women fit into these things. I know that we, as an American society, are definitely “larger” in size than people were 30 yrs ago, but they must’ve had the smallest waists ever! All of their jeans were super high-waisted and made to fit very snug. My main complaint is that because they are sooo high-waisted, they also are high in the back which when combined with the snug fit can make for a very flat booty look. Not the look that I am trying to achieve, lol. Especially for someone as myself who don’t naturally have a donkey or a stallion booty (ha ha, a little Atlanta Housewives language). So hence the reason why I wore this blazer to cover such pancake booty. The bonus is that the blazer pulls the look together more anyway. What is your experience with vintage pants/shorts? Enjoy the rest of the weekend! God Bless!
