As we all know February is Black History Month and I must say I do enjoy see all the great facts and stories about our positive black figures in history. Throughout this month every week I will highlight a special, what I like to call, “Fashionably Beautiful.” She will be a noted woman of our history who despite many obstacles and challenges managed to persevere and achieve the goals she’s set out for herself, and not to mention she looks damn good while doing it 😉
This week I’ve decide to highlight the beautiful Dorothy Dandridge. It’s very obvious of how much of a physical beauty she truly is. What I find especially remarkable about Dorothy is her achievement of being the first African American to receive an Academy Award nomination for best actress in 1955, during a period of racial segregation. Although it wasn’t a win, Dorothy managed to rise up against the odds of her time in an industry where although she may have been allowed to perform on stage, she wasn’t allowed fraternize in the establishments she performed in because of racially segregation. Nonetheless, we celebrate this beauty and all of her achievements and contribution to our history.

There are some 80s fashion that I wish would just remain in the 80s. I felt that way when I saw cut off shorts were making a comeback in summer fashion trends. However, I’ve had a little change of heart after seeing some really nicely styled cut off jean shorts. Cut off shorts are one of those items if it’s done tastefully it’ll look really cute or you may end up looking like you belong in the Red Light District (if you know what I mean).
Here are some looks that I found that make me want to grab a pair of jeans and start cutting away. They make cut off shorts look very versatile. If you like these looks, check out my Pinterest Board of cut off shorts styles, you won’t be disappointed.

Do these comments sound familiar? “I love her style” “That fits her, but it wouldn’t fit me” “I’m not crazy about that dress” “I’m not sure I’d wear that” There are different aspects to each one’s style, that’s what makes us each unique, whether the newest eye candy bracelet or your Grandmother’s wedding ring.
As a mom on the go, I know how important style is, but I also know how easy it is to get caught up in busy schedules and everyday life so getting “pretty and prepped” everyday needs to be done in ten minutes or less. Here are some cute ModMom looks that take 10 minutes or less to replicate.
My philosophy is true style is more about how one “feels” about themselves, if they feel absolutely great about themselves it’ll “show” in their appearance. CLICK TO TWEET
