I have a few confessions to make.
1) I always feel weird posing by myself. No matter how many step-and-repeats I am on, I’m always like GULP! EEK! WHAT?!! in my head. So before this recent HBO Latino Habla Y Vota breakfast, hosted by “The Reel’s” Adrienne Bailon, I googled “JLo red carpet looks.”
2) I’ve always been afraid of tulle skirts but decided to take the leap and rock one anyway.
3) My socks are fuchsia and I know it.
4) I was thinking of McDonalds fries when this pic was taken.
5) I bought said fries soon after.
But, back to the most reveling secret I just shared. You know, how I was afraid to wear a tulle skirt. Honestly, I see so many fashion trends that I don’t believe I have the body for. And it’s not about weight. I often just feel too hippy or short for certain looks, especially skirts or dresses with volume. So putting on this outfit was a bold step in the right direction – the one where I say fuck it and werk a look despite personal hang ups.
I purchased the entire outfit (minus the booties) at an affordable price at A’GACI, a store at the South Shore Mall in Bayshore, NY. The entire outfit plus a green fall wrap jacket cost approximately 85 bucks. No A’GACI where you live? No worries. There’s always Amazon!
