Fashion and style are two different things. “We may have on similar outfits but look entirely different.” Outfits equals fashion while the looks, let’s just call that style. Today I need to breakthrough to y’all style offenders out there. I cannot begin to express enough how sad and scared I often get when my eyes meet certain things. It literally feels like post-election violence all over again. Wait did I just compare that gruesome act of 2007 to your style? Huh! I just can’t…
Let me just put this out there. Today, I am not going to mention names or point fingers. However, am going to shame your acts. Pay attention, am only going to say this once. Shout out to y’all mashing up LL Cool J, Puff daddy, Sisqo and Notorious BIG’s style. Y’all look ridiculous. Don’t get it twisted; I absolutely love the 90’s gangster look. But trust me, you don’t have to be every single 90’s rapper/musician at the same damn time. Pick a struggle; it ain’t that hard. And boy, don’t get me started on you having relaxed colored hair. Huh! Who do you think you are?
As though the above is not bad enough, here you go again with your “scaled” looking legs. Aroused in me, is the curiosity of your grooming habits; if at all you have any. I mean, isn’t it common knowledge to put some oil on immediately after you step out of the shower? I need answers here, for it was only satisfaction that brought the cat back. How on earth do you just get into layering your outfit, before moisturizing your body? You should honestly be ashamed of yourself if you skip the most basic step of grooming. Dudes, I tell you this for free; if you’re still single, it’s probably because your legs kind of look like they have scales. No woman would ever pay attention to a man that doesn’t take care of himself. There is a huge gap between you and the man that has the girl of your fantasy. Oil them legs to bridge that gap. Okay!
Ever since the big chop got recognition as cool, most if not every woman is trimming down their hair. Some obviously look adorable and for this reason, I must confess I have ultimately considered doing so as well. I just need that extra push and drive for me to get to that level. I understand that maintaining natural hair is not an easy task. But don’t go about your business with unkempt hair and blame it on “all natural”. Going natural shouldn’t be an excuse for not maintain yourself. Trust me, I know all about maintaining natural hair, with protective styling and having products that are of importance. All am trying to say is y’all make natural hair look bad when you really don’t take care of it.
Any woman of substance will agree with the common dictum that what you wear greatly influences how people view you. Again, am only going to say this once; so pay attention. Stockings are not tights. ‘What do you mean?” This is the question in your head, right? Well, shout out to y’all ladies wearing t-shirts and blouses with stockings. You look so shady. What exactly are you trying to achieve? See, you only wear stockings or pantyhose beneath dresses or dress tops. It is so ratchet of you if we can see the lines of demarcations that specify whether you have on a boxer brief stocking or a v-line one. Those lines are there for a reason. Stop being ignorant and obey the "stockings rule". See the lines should totally be covered; beneath the dress. C'mon ladies can you just stop embarrassing yourselves like this now!
"Compose yourself" this is what I say to myself, every single time. Well, all in all ladies and gents, you do you, be yourselves. But always keep in mind that someone somewhere is always watching and will most definitely tell.
