THROWBACK: 90’s Style

Hey Girl Hey!

I’m a 80’s baby and proud of it. I have to admit that the 90’s is where I found my style.

This is how I pay homage to the era.  #SaseeChic

1940’s & 1950’s Kinda Vibe…. Sasee’s Style

Hey Girl… Hey!

Inspiration is vital! You can take something and mold it into what you want it to be.  This holds true with style…  I’m loving this look! I was influenced by the beautiful women of the 1940’s & 50’s era.  The classic red lip, fur, and sequin represents their generation well but, I was able to add my own twist to it.  I love the poised “lady-like” look yet the boots brings an edgy flare to the mix. Ladies, remember, your unique look defines your personality…it’s your signature …wear it well!

As always, Be Confident… Be Unique… Be YOU! #SaseeChic

 

 

SaseeGirls Have the Most Fun

Ladies, its 2017 and things have changed, for the better, we don’t need to take our style SO seriously.  Relax and simply do you, boo!  It’s highly satisfying when you can focus on what makes you unique and not the style of others.  We must inspire to be different yet creative. Striving not to follow the latest trends/fads but, committing to being different yet creative with your style.

SaseeGirls have all the fun because we don’t overthink our style.  We do what comes natural… whatever makes us feel good! Our style is defined and we are satisfied in it.  Being a SaseeGirl isn’t determined by your size or the inch of your heels/pumps.  It’s defined by your ability to be YOU!  Knowing who you really are is powerful and it’s vital to your confidence.

One may ask… What is a SaseeGirl?

  • Boldness: Do you dare to be different?
  • Personality: What makes you…YOU?
  • Creativity: What’s your style?

These three (3) things not only make up your style… it helps to sculpt and configure who you really are.  SaseeGirls tell a story of their life and how they plan to inspire others to be great.  Yes, ladies… isn’t it wonderful to be confident in your style?

Remember… Be Confident. Be Unique… Be YOU! and, never make any apologies for it.

Body Positivity: Are You Comfortable In Your Skin?

Do you remember the “Plus is Equal” campaign?  Lane Bryant launched this collection in fall of 2015.  The world went crazy! Was America finally accepting plus size? Looking back on it…I’m not quite sold on it all.  I’ll admit the “plus is equal” movement officially put us plus size girls on the map. I felt as if we were ultimately accepted for being “us”… not just a plus sized or being a fat girl.  I always wondered if this was simply a craze for the moment or, if plus sized women would begin to see fashion or style as just that. …not, just what I can find in my size and deal with it.  As we enter into 2017, has body positivity made a change or, are we simply back at square one?

There’s the saying, “get in formation”, “slay”, “girlboss”, and we cannot forget the most famous one of them all, “DIVA”… but, does your confidence scream these things?  We often talk the talk but do we actually walk it.  Are you comfortable in your skin?  Ladies, this is definitely something to think about.

Being comfortable shows that you are at ease… you are relaxed.  Your style should show your confidence in the selection process.  Your posture is relaxed and upright.  You are comfortable being YOU!  As we settle into 2017, let’s practice relaxation and being pleasant in our skin.  This not only demonstrates our uniqueness it brings out your character as well.

Body Positivity: accepting the body you have as well as the changes in shape, size, and ability it may undergo due to nature, age, or your own personal choices throughout your lifetime.  This is truly being comfortable in your skin.  You must learn to first accept things you cannot change.  Be grateful for life… know you are blessed!

Ladies, you are beautiful at any age… and, at any size. This year, we must focus on confidence and boosting self-esteem. Our personality is depending on it.

Remember… Be Confident, Be Unique, and Be YOU! …and, we never make any apologies for it.

Are YOU Making a Statement?

Making a statement with your style demonstrates character and confidence.  This is the first step towards being genuinely… YOU!

Your personal style statement is simply telling a story of your life; which, is your personality.  This story is being told without you having to say anything about your unique look or style.  It’s interesting to know that your style can tell events occurred both past and present.  Now, one might raise an eyebrow knowing their past could possibly be revealed yet not realizing the true blessing in it.  Your statement shows YOU have overcome obstacles…past, present, and future.  Making a statement can be tough but the self-assurance you gain is well worth the leap.

So, the million dollar question is… How do you know when you are making a statement?

  1. You Know Your Style
  2. Stepping out of the box
  3. Your Walk Screams Confidence

Know your style… Know what looks good on you. Just because it comes in your size doesn’t mean it’s a representation of who you are.  A lady that’s wearing an outfit meant for her silhouette… well, just let me say that the rest is history.

Stepping out of the box… and, being different can be challenging and difficult yet so rewarding.  Ladies, believe it or not, you encourage other women to be bold with their style. You motivate others to represent their unique look confidently, it gives them that slight nudge to try something different.  Yes, women inspire women… isn’t that what it’s all about?

Your walk screams confidence… whenever you step in a room.  Style + Confidence= Personality and ladies be comfortable in who you are.  Like I always say, know your worth and your style because the two are a lethal combination.

Remember ladies, Be Confident… Be Unique… Be YOU! and, never make any apologies for it.

A Lady & Her Cowgirl Boots

It’s interesting how style can be demonstrated so many different ways.  An individuals personality can be portrayed so beautifully through their look..  Now… it’s important to be both confident and sure of yourself.

Why is this?  Well, defining your style is crucial to the outcome of how YOU really are.  It’s a necessity to be true to yourself… be genuine.

I love playing with my look. I’m sure you are well aware of my type of style.  Sassy yet Chic…. it’s my thing!  Whenever I get a chance to play with my look it gives me the opportunity to test both my confidence and personality.

Yep! I decided to test my style with Cowgirl Boots. LOL!

If you really know me… and, I mean really know me…. I’m more of a high heel/pump kinda girl with a twist of flats. Too funny!!  LOL! So, this is definitely stepping out of my comfort zone and exploring my style.

A Burst of Bold Color

_dsc4959-3A few weeks ago, I challenged you all to take a “risk” with your style.  I wanted everyone to step outside their normal routine and try something different.  As stated in my previous blog… change is good and much needed.  Taking risks are difficult and sometimes a hard task to accomplish …but, with a little patience and diligence you can move towards defining your unique style.  You will have defeated your fears of stepping out and being different through style.

I decided to challenge myself to wearing more bold colors.  I love being stylish, yet, it’s usually more on a conservative chic level… if that make sense. LOL!!!  Making a statement with style screams confidence which ultimately requires risk.

Neutral colors are considered safe and it’s appropriate for any occasion.  You have to put in some time and effort to step out with something bold.  I know firsthand how uncomfortable this could be.  That’s why it’s so crucial to take small steps when it comes to adjusting to a style.  Most times, bold colors are associated with prints and, even though it’s the trend, some individuals are still coming into this new found look.  So, I have suggestions….

  1. Beginners. Pick one (1) bold color and offset it with something neutral.  This can help a beginner transition into colors and prints without becoming overwhelmed with a look.
  2. Intermediate. Pair a pop of color with a print.  For example… try pairing a leopard print button down shirt with green trousers/pants.  This gives you the opportunity to test your confidence level.
  3. Proficient. You are definitely confident in your style.  Mixing and matching prints is second nature to you.  Try a black and white polka dot flare midi skirt and a blouse with stripes pattern.  Those stripes can be any color of your choice.  You are mixing prints with patterns and officially stepping out of your comfort zone.

Try something different this week.  Trust me when I say you will definitely feel good about yourself and your style.
