What To Wear: Graduation Edition


It’s finally a done deal!!! This past Friday, May 17, I graduated with my Masters in Literature from Georgetown University. When I tell you that walking across that stage was the best feeling in the world, I truly mean it! I’ve never been so intellectually challenged in my life…

But for now, let’s just discuss the outfit…As I already stated here I bought the dress from Zara. My bestie, Brandi, actually picked it out so I can’t take credit for that. But the shoes…

Originally, I bought a simple gold shoe, but it just didn’t wow me, and I knew that I wouldn’t wear it again. And then I found the shoe I am wearing.Oh.My.God…These shoes are!! I actually wanted the black ones, and went to Macy’s and tried them on and everything. However, I knew that I needed a graduation shoe and the black one just wouldn’t go with my yellow dress.

So I ended up getting the snakeskin version of the shoe online (at the last minute) and had to have them shipped to me overnight. And I am soooooo glad I did!! I loved the fact that the shoe had gold in it but wasn’t all gold. I also loved that they didn’t match the dress exactly but somehow still worked …Oh yes, I will definitely be wearing these all summer.

As you can see I kept my accessories to a minimum, only wearing gold stud earrings and a gold watch. The look really didn’t need much added to it…

Check out the complete graduation look and a close-up of the shoes below:

4 More Years! & I’m Back!

Hey folks!! I’ve really missed you all over the past month or so. But before I get into what’s going on with me, I have to say congratulations to our President, Barack Obama for securing another term. Words cannot express how elated I am that Obama will be remaining in office. Cheers to moving FOURward!!

Yesterday was an amazing day for me. Not only because my Prez was re-elected, but also because my thesis was finally approved by my department and uploaded for online publication! I thought that completing the research and the written portion of the thesis was tough but editing the format was just as tedious. I had to go through multiple levels of approvals, and at some points wasn’t sure that I was going to make it.  However, by the grace of God I was able to finish! I received an A- on my thesis, and I will officially be done with school this December (walking across the stage in May 2013)!

In case anyone is interested in the topic of my thesis, it’s entitled Octavia Butler’s Examination of Religious Values and the Human Condition in America. Butler was a black science fiction writer I met while I was studying at Howard University. My thesis focuses on her series she wrote back in the 1990s, Parable of the Sower and Parable of the Talents. Trust, you need to read these books!! She was a visionary and many of the things that she wrote about in her novels are occurring in American today, which is why I found these novels so intriguing…

Anywhoo…While focused on graduating, so many other things have fallen by the wayside so now I am pulling it together and trying to make things happen. I have so much in store for the site and am excited to get back to what I love to do: blogging…Stay tuned for more posts this week and some changes in the near future! God Bless!! XOXO
