From Geek to Chic

“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!“
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
“Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!

I just had to take a praise break before I started writing this post. For I am so grateful and humbled by the blessings and tribulation that I have received and overcome. God is AMAZING to me and Lords know I don't deserve it. But I stand here blessed and thankful for the things that he has done and the things that he is about to do. I give God the glory, the honor, and the praise... in advance. AMEN!

Now, lets get to it. While perusing the Internet for fabulous duds, I floated over to ASOS to put my 20% off coupon to good use. I pondered back and forth about whether I should or shouldn't purchase the skirt shown in this post. I know that it's very popular and I usually go for the under appreciated pieces. However, this skirt is so fun and cute, I just gave in and bought it. I knew that I wanted to dress it down, being as though most have decided to dress it up. While looking for a top to pair with the skirt, I came across this "Geek" Sweatshirt and it spoke to me. IT'S SO ME! It was perfect for the look and feel that I was going for and I knew it would be the perfect fit for the Ivie Rose Boutique Mixer. I kept my accessories simple, as I didn't want to appear overdressed. I added my signature specs and light jewelry to finish the look.

The Q&A mixer hosted by a Ivie Rose Boutique was this past weekend and I had a blast! I attended as a special guest to answer questions about hair, makeup, fashion etc. I was so grateful to be apart of such an event. I love networking and supporting people from my area, especially when it's a black owned businesses. Ivie Rose has a monthly mixer series so be sure to check their website for upcoming events. I had a great time meeting my followers and "instabuddies". It was a good time. Thanks to all of the fab ladies who came out and supported.
 
Here are the photos from the event. Enjoy!
