Anonymous asked: I feel like guys are extremely "put off" with current fashion trends...i.e. pillowcase dresses and trouser pants. What are some staple pieces to invest in that won't break the bank, but will attract the right male eyes? Youdabest, girl.

Three letters: LBD. Cliche, yes. But it will never go out of style.

While little black dresses are fun, they can get old, and thrown into the uniform category. Invest in backless dresses. There is something undeniably intriguing about the curve of a woman’s back—a great way to show some skin without a plunging neckline that screams cleavage.

Have fun with your fashion choices. Wear them for you! The right boys will be attracted to all of your other flawless features, besides how you dress. 

Thanks for the sweet words, now go rock your style.

ofiscariot:

literature meme (origin): 1/5 poets. sylvia plath.

And I a smiling woman.
I am only thirty.
And like the cat I have nine times to die.

The most bold-ass bitch. The legend.

The most bold-ass bitch. The legend. 
If you built yourself a myth

You’d know just what to give
What comes after this
Momentary bliss
The consequence of what you do to me

Help me to name it

I just want to thank this girl for being such an inspiration to me, for picking me up when I’m down, for always giving honest advice, and for being such a bold-ass woman. I love you, @sistatothadistant. Can’t wait for more photo shoots and hangs in NYC soon! (at soul train)

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place; from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.

— Pablo Picasso

That crazed girl improvising her music.
Her poetry, dancing upon the shore,

Her soul in division from itself
Climbing, falling She knew not where,
Hiding amid the cargo of a steamship,
Her knee-cap broken, that girl I declare
A beautiful lofty thing, or a thing
Heroically lost, heroically found.

-W.B. Yeats (at Bud & Alley’s Panama City Beach)

If a poem hasn’t ripped apart your soul; you haven’t experienced poetry.
