Last week, a friend of mine picked me up from work. As I got into his car, he said, “You wear sweatpants to work? Lucky you!” And I was like, “yeah. What’s the big deal?” Our clothes can get us all kinds of attention, both good and bad. My non-strategy strategy of dressing like myself while staying within the bounds of acceptable work wear like short and sweatpants gets me asked a lot of questions by my friends.

From outfit to shoes, and nothing delivers that for me perfectly like my androgynous outfits. Very easy, you just basically throw them… Read More


You can’t say bread, without butter. I mean, how is bread really, without butter? For me it’s either butter or margarine otherwise no bread. I know you are wondering what’s all these about bread even before I say hi to you guys, lol. As a foodie, 99.9% of the time, food is always on my mind. Even in any conversation I have, I must mention food. That’s how much of a foodie I am. Now, replace food with shorts and you’ll get what I’m trying to say. Simply, I can’t… Read More
