Yesterday and today I was out running some errands and I saw a bunch of fashion bloopers and blunders. In some instances, I couldn't believe my eyes.

The first one was a woman with more dimples than a golf ball and more cottage cheese than Breakstones and she had the nerve to have on some daisy dukes! I couldn't believe my eyes. They were screaming "Stop it, please!" This woman had the nerve to be sharing her sexual escapades. I think she thought it was cute but she sounded like a low budget ho.

The next one was a young girl (maybe 16)who was wearing some black sheer leggings with some polka dot panties. Now, I'm sure this girl didn't realize how she looked. Maybe her mom doesn't know any better so she can't teach her to do any better.

Yesterday, I was in the store and this woman was walking in some high heels. As she was walking, you could hear the nail in the heel. Ladies, take your shoes to the shoe repair shop or pitch them when the tip is missing. Stop wearing them. It is not cute and it is annoying to the ear.

Now, I know some people may not think anything was/is wrong with these things, but I couldn't believe some of the people were actually out and about looking the way they were. What happened to women of color looking decent when they leave the house? Does that even happen anymore?

Another year.

A few days ago (3 to be exact) I celebrated my 35th birthday. I was contemplating on having a birthday party but then life got in the way and I just didn't have the time to plan it properly.

In recent months, I have been invited to adult birthday parties and you are expected to pay for your own lunch or dinner and bring them a gift! Now, when people plan parties for their children, they don't ask you to pay for your child, so why do they do this as adults?

This is just my opinion and I am not asking people to agree with it although a lot of the etiquette experts would agree as well, if you are planning a birthday dinner party, you should pick up the tab and do not expect a gift. If people want to bring you a gift they will do so on their own, but it should not be expected. I always like to believe that a parties are a way of celebrating with those who are close to you. If you are planning a party to gain, maybe you should reconsider doing this.
