MINDING MY OWN BUSINESS



For as long as, I can remember, I’ve had aspirations of owning my own business and truly following my dreams. Unfortunately, for a very longtime, I allowed what people think of me to become a major obstacle.You see, I didn’t want to be labeled as just another materialistic, stereotypical and superficial light-skinned black girl. I know silly RIGHT?!….but we’ve all been there before in some shape, form or fashion (allowing what humans think and say about us to hinder us in some way). Then one day, I had a major epiphany. I came to the realization that although, I love fashion, I’m not validated by any material thing and usually the people that put labels on others are unhappy,  insecure individuals. I also realized that I only have one shot at life and I should step out on faith and go after my dreams. After all people are going to talk about you no matter what you are doing and that’s not my business or concern!! I know that I’m a god-fearing, smart, humble, beautiful, classy, respectful and educated black woman. I’m not defined by what I do for a living or what people think of me, my past mistakes or my failures. I’m definied by my Christian walk. I was born with purpose, destiny, resilience and amazing drive for a reason. On top of all of that I’ve been blessed with gifts that come natural and effortless to me. I’m not diminishing my degrees, my accomplishments or previous accolades. I know that those achievements are all apart of my continued journey. However, I’m reminded of the old adage,“ choose a job that you love, and you will never work a day in your life”. I absolutely love working for my self: I love fashion, styling, blogging, helping people, talking to people, encouraging them, smiling, laughing and giving advice. I’ve never enjoyed working on the weekends until now. The weekends give me so much to look forward to: participating in events, meeting new clients, selling my products and networking has been a very humbling yet amazing experience. Although my physical body may get tired at times, my spirit is always strong!! I’m so excited about this new business journey that life has me on and I know that as long as I keep God first that “HE” is going to take me to places that I’ve always dream of!!! 
So grateful that my sweet-girl was here to help me out on Small Business Saturday. 
I love this sweet face soooo much.:)

FRINGE



Fringe is SUPER HOT right now. From Fringe skirts, shoes, purses to Fringe tops and jackets. 
You can not go into any shop, open up a magazine or log on to any social media site without seeing something with Fringe details on it. Yes, Fringe is everywhere!:) I’ve been getting into the habit of wearing the pieces that I sell in my store to show my clients how they look on. Mixing my pieces with some of items that I already have in my wardrobe is so much fun!! I wore this cute Fringe Skirt from my online store (Graceful K Boutique ) to a shopping event this past Sunday and I received a lot of compliments!:) This skirt is faux suede (on trend) and extremely cute, and fun. A definite must have!!

FLARE



Flares are all the rage right now and I’m SUPER GEEKED that they made a come back! I remember wearing them in the twelfth grade with stacks for my Senior Class Day Picture (Ha)!! Who knew that they’d come back around again?! I wore these Paisley Flares to,"The Women’s Empowerment Luncheon", this past Saturday. I thought the bow blouse would pair nicely with the Paisley Flares and big hair for a complete seventies look!:) Every fashionista should add a pair to her wardrobe. Plus, I know where you can find these Super Cute Flare Pants for an amazing price! Yes, you guessed it, Graceful K Boutique carries these stylish paisley Flare Bell Bottoms!! I love the fit and how amazingly comfortable they are. I’ve been pretty engulfed in this season’s fashions and all of the awesome styles. Fashion is so amazing these days and I’m loving every bit of it!! Everything is basically in style, plus the mere fact that these pants can be worn all year round makes them even more desirable:)

GREY+OXBLOOD



This past Saturday my online store, "Graceful K Boutique, participated in the annual “Pink and Purple Awareness Day” to support the victims of Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence. The event took place at the Natural Hair Boutique located inside the Legacy Locs and Natural Hair styles in Memphis, TN. 
I was very impressed with the testimonies of all of the speakers who spoke and shared their stories.
 It’s imperative that we as women support other women and stand in the gap for those who are unable to stand for themselves. I’m very honored to have been apart of such a powerful event!:)
