BOSSED UP: Pants Suits For The Everyday Woman

You know a boss lady when she struts into the room suited and booted in a well-fitted pantsuit”

Soap Box Moment: For so long, women have worked harder or as hard as men but made statistically less dollar for dollar than their counterparts. Women have been marginalized, put down, and harassed simply because of their sex. Well women, It’s time for us to put on our pantsuits and fight back against every injustice, and harassment anyone would try to throw our way. The Golden Globes last night made me so proud to be a W-O-M-A-N!

I was almost in tears when Oprah said in her speech, “So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon…” a day where our truths and our words will set us free from discrimination. Almost every woman came, dressed in all black, in solidarity against the sexual abuses that has been happening in Hollywood for centuries. I wore all black as I watched from my home in solidarity with them as well. Remember, no matter how scared you are to speak out, “your truth is the most powerful tool you will ever have” so SPEAK OUT and don’t let anyone ever shut you down as a woman…YOUR VOICE IS POWERFUL!

Now, let me get off my soap box and talk about the fashion on the red carpet and some of my favorite looks…fyi some of the women had on pantsuits.

I just loved Kyra Sedgwick’s pantsuit so much. It fit her like a glove and accentuated her tiny waist and long legs. It also cemented the fact that women are here to stay, a force to be reckoned with and not to be taken lightly. To me a well-fit pantsuit will speak volumes and louder than anything else you can say.

Fuchsia.Passion

A strong and barely controllable emotion” is what webster defines as PASSION!

We all have once had a passion for something. Whether it was playing basketball, being an actor, being a doctor, being a lawyer, or being a singer, passion would keep us up at night and keep us dreaming during the day. Well, along the way, passion fizzles out. Life comes in and waters down the fire of passion and with time, we forget, we lose sight, and we move on. Now, it’s time to pick up those passions friends.

Remember, you don’t have to quit your life, your job, your day-to-day activities to pursue passion. You just have to find time to carve you a space for you and a space to pursue your passion. You can do it. Let me know what passions you have given up on and how you decide to pick it up and make those dreams a reality. The difference between dreams and reality is You. You make the dream work, so get out and work!

This look is my Fuchsia Passion. I found this gorgeous dress at the Ghetto Dillards (Dillard’s Outlet in Eastdale Mall). Being a new mommy, my arms are just not where I want them to be so I paired the dress with a stripped off-shoulder blouse, a folded faux-leather bag and black and white heels. This look is perfect for that special occasion. I have linked sites where you can buy that perfect evening outfit so check them out and tag me on IG: Oluwafunmifly  or FB: Houseofodara if you recreate this look. Don’t forget to comment and let me know what you think. Also, let me know what other looks you want to see and ask any questions you may have.
