Fashion Flash Back: 1980’s For All Dem’ Babies***messymandella***Whitney Houston (1985)

Age doesn’t matter!

Your size doesn’t matter!

The Color of your Skin Doesn’t Matter!
Your hair can be long, short, natural,weave, even a 1980’s mullet and Doc Martins with Crush Velvet (I don’t even know…child…)  but wear it with confidence.

You have to feel that love and admiration, even from a hater. If you prefer the 1980’s but are a little afraid,maybe have a retro party with close friends who appreciate big bangs, hairspray and layers of sock. Maybe,you are not ready for the Patti Labelle hair hat, just as of yet.

They may be  envious of you because YOU can pull it off, and you took that fashion risk.

3 women can wear the same dress, but if you don’t have that confidence, and beauty that embodies grace, you have wasted your time.

Take pride in yourself.

You are amazing, and adventurous. Those clothes, are an accessory for your unique swagger, and gorgeous face. These women are gorgeous, and all of different races an and different hair styles. You keep being confident, you with your bad ass!


All of these looks work, because the confidence is more important than the clothes.
You will stand in the light, and will have fashion mishaps too.

Don’t worry,but again if you are confident you won’t give a damn.

If you are not ready to go out with your hair stacked up to Jesus, or don’t invest in Aqua net Hair Spray have an 1980’s theme party. Don’t let someone tell you to play fashion, safe. That is not for you, if you have confidence.

Don’t worry about other’s opinions.

I don’t!

Forever Young-R.I.P.-For You L.J.***messymandella***

ljI will never get to hug my little cousin again. I saw him a few weeks ago, and he got up and gave me the biggest hug, with his big ears. I felt the love in that hug. That feeling you get when you meet someone who lights up a room. We will never have another Laquan Parker Jr. We can hold on to the memories. As, I looked at you in that casket, I knew none of our lives would ever feel the same.Now, I am very private person,but when I looked into his eyes, I knew he had something that we didn’t have. I knew he was not meant for our world. I cried like a baby when I heard that you drowned, 2 days before your 19th Birthday. I can’t imagine what could come of this pain?

When I looked around as I was sitting with our family, I knew that you were here for a glimpse,and that’s all you needed.

You made that impact. You weren’t an Angel, but you were too good for this world.I will miss you. The boy I saw in that casket was not my cousin. It was a shell of who you were, but your spirit was gone. Your High School Principle and classmates, could not finish their speeches, because of the pain. You graduated a month ago. So much ahead, so we thought…

I don’t want to remember you with that  casket  shutting on you,for the final time. I want to remember  how  you were looking in your red t-shirt  and shorts! I will remember that devious smile, when you got up from the table,and gave me that hug. You will always be a beacon of light in our lives, and you will remain young. Love You LJ!
