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!

Katie Kate – Persephone (Live on KEXP) ***messymandella***

      Looking for music that may provide that nostalgic feeling of 1990’s soul mixed with Hip-Hop and also mixed with drums from the “Lion King?”  You probably didn’t have that in mind, however you have also never heard of  Singer, Katie Kate. She elevates you with her naturalistic hippie mixed with Hip-Hop vibe that takes you into so many places within four minutes and fourteen seconds!

          She masters a multitude of  genres and brilliantly and effectively  encompasses  in one song. Her delivery and vocals are executed to perfection. Katie Kate of course is an Indie Artist that has not garnered the attention she respectively deserves.

        Who knows, maybe this will be her year? She is performing on KEXP Radio, and that is where some lesser known at the time artist by the name of Macklemore, also received national attention. Mackelmore’s musical reception and appreciation has been  received and favored for their beliefs and unique blend of  Hip Hop and Soul. Katie Kate, has just as much talent. Listen to “Persephone” and judge the skills of this Sista, who is trying to establish her name in the game.

Dammit, She deserves to be heard!
