A “Remember this? Remember the time” post.
Place: Atlanta’s Plaza Theatre 1049 Ponce De Leon Ave NE
I volunteer with The Atlanta Film Festival’s Special Events with the lovely Sydney Lamont (hey Sydney!).
This particular evening HBO’s Original Series GIRLS was premiering their third season. It was a beautiful night. Everybody looking pretty and giggly.
I don’t know whose idea it was, but I was glad they had a popcorn bar, complete with jelly beans, caramel-apple Twizzlers, mini Chips-Ahoy, nuts, and plenty of nostalgic candy to throw in the mix.
I met a tall, lively red head who turned out to be the director of HBO’s PR for this region. Never know who you gon meet, huh? Gotta stay ready.
Frizzle was always dope.
She stayed putting her Stank on it, original to the fullest.
Solar system dress, weather raincoat, dinosaur skirt; she was dressed to the Nines 24/7; anytime she was at school she jump-fresh. Not to mention that she was a whiz on any and everything,
This stylish mamacita is Peaches!
Wearing an Owl’s Eye tank from Urban Outfitters!!
Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child, before you understood the meaning of any word, before opinions took over your mind. The real you is loving, joyful, and free. The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun.

Nike Air Max 1 Ultra has this beautiful floral line called Floral City Pack, with a sneaker for Tokyo, NYC, Milan, Shangai, London, and Paris (pictured here in all its pink and blue glory). They were released April 11, 2015 in North America. I want these! Make those tootsies feel the meadows!
I met this beautiful young mother in her feminine floral and I had to stop her. Maureen is making everybody stop and smell the roses in her black floral sundress. And doing it all while expecting and entertaining her son! I love to see a stylish SuperMom. ❤
Purusing Pinterest, I found these edible flower ice cubes; how gorgeous!
Type in your own Secret Garden with this Liz Lisa Floral Print Silicon keyboard, sold on EBay. I just thought it was worth sharing, since it’s so stinking adorable.
Here I am last summer when I was expecting my son Riley.
All in all, flowers can make you smile and flowers can make anything sexier.

I styled myself for a few promo pics with Urban Village1146 Euclid Ave, Atlanta, GA in Little Five Points (Atlanta’s eclectic, artistic, dope meets weird…mini-Austin neighborhood).
This that unveiling of L5P epitome.
Coral bandage dress
Pink Dorothy from the Wiz pumps that pinch toes
And six years worth of natural hair.
Taking the Tunic trend black AND floral, this girl had me beaming when she told me my style remember her of that Big Ole Apple.
Mint 3/4 blazer. Check.
Black high waist cigarette pants. Check.
Floral dress you bought at Marshall’s when you spent whole checks on clothes. Check.
And there you have it.
Take a vintage silk navy striped catalogue type Oxford, a lemon yellow knit cardigan and some curls, and VOILÁ!
Steve Madden has created my lovely biker studded boots that I hunted down at Dillards two Decemebers ago.
Her name is Magenta
She makes life feel like a fable,
Running on train platforms to catch unicorns flying to the Brooklyn Art Museum and Abyssinian restaurants.
She paints with a mixture of crushed ochre, wet lilacs, and oil:
Her paintbrushes are enchanted.
She practices with each picture, until for painting she is paid.
Offertory grins offering the World through her eyes.
Offhand politeness, a pretty bird from down South.
Doing slightly better on her Odyssey than Odysseus:
Her only offense, singing octagonal octaves with tremble fit only for October.
It’s that frighteningly authentic.
Official oddity, settling into her weirdness
That psychology officiates.
Her head cocked in analyzation,
An amendment to her peers’ playfully shallow scope,
And a nod to her ancestors.
She is analogous to a princess,
Petals envelope her lavender body as she drops them every now and again
Like the globe’s flower girl decorating dirty streets.

I am lighting the circumference of my Circle on the regular: constantly extending myself to meet new people/beings/spirits AND lookin fly doing it.
This weekend I played horseshoes, ate lemon poundcake, went to a banquet, laughed my a$$ off, met five new people, went to a birthday party, line danced, bought Amazonite, Malachite, and Chrysocolla crystals, cried, was advised, and also advised.
Be on your mission, feel free enuff to use your talents, be beautiful, be handsome, and contribute.
