The funny thing about an ugly sweater is that they are so freaken cute. The truth is, my competitive side kicks in when I hear the word “competition”. I go above and beyond for a good clean win. My creativity jumps way off the map and for this competition, I think I outdid myself.
Hello all!!! I am proud to say that December 17th makes 2 months since I officially made my first blog post on www.EbanyRenee.com. I am so proud of this accomplishment because I have tried to start my blog for years. Before I didn’t understand the dedication, time, and planning it required to maintain a blog.
Have you ever been laying in bed…sleep…that good kind of sleep that has your mouth open and your saliva begans to trail down the side of your face…suddenly you are sitting up, awake, phone in hand typing away…a text to yourself…pen in hand, paper on the pillow sketching…”Creativity ain’t got a time schedule” I was once told.
My favorite past time is shopping!!! It does not matter if I’m thrifting or shopping in the mall, I just love shopping!!! I’m also about saving a few coins as well. Nothing excites me more than getting a great deal on clothes. I feel like I’ve accomplished everything in life. Lol. All of my “real shoppers” understand where I’m coming from.
Today marks my 28th year of life. I have cried, laughed, been stressed, and been happy within this 28 years. I have gained plenty of friends and I have lost plenty as well. I have had my trials and tribulations but I must say that I am the happiest I have ever been. This year, I was able to celebrate my birthday with people who mean a lot to me, have the spotlight and was treated like a queen.
So a few days ago, I was asked to create a halloween costume for one of my best friends. She wanted to be “Queen of Hearts”, a character from one of my favorite childhood movie Alice in Wonderland. Now, when she asked did I know how to make the outfit, I said yes, knowing I could do it but I was unsure because it was something that I had never done.
Now, I love this look!!! This top here, I found on the clearance rack at Cotton On. The jeans are Levis bout at Macy’s. I found the shoes while thrifting. This look screams YEEESSS!!! You can dress up this look with a more dressy pump and clutch or calm it down with a sneaker and over the shoulder bag. I went for the casual, yet “chillax” look.
This look was inspired by nature itself…how free…how innocent…the colors speak volumes and goes perfectly with my out. The lace long loose skirt make me want to just let go and exhale!! BE FREE!!! The top was a thin strapped crop that i detached the strapps from the back and turned into a haulter crop.
Hello all!!! So recently I started to clean my closet and came across some peices (tops and bottoms) that i had packed away over a year ago. Some things were never worn and I got to thinking, “hey, why not have a mini photoshoot!!!” So my bestfriend and I grabbed our camera phones and redbull and went on a voyage to find a nice body of water and stoops for our background.
Costume party for my 27th birthday… #Dominant #LetMeRuleYourWorld #2014
