Inaguration baby!

My husband is so disgusted but do I care!. This is why he is shaking his head in dismay
Mrembo: “This is so exciting.. can’t wait for Tuesday’s big bash inauguration”

Big Al: ” Mhm… why”

Mrembo: “Can’t wait to see what Mrs O is wearing”

Big Al: kisses his teeth (yeah he has learnt how to do that) and shakes his head in utter dismay….. he does not get it.

Anyway, I am so excited. I am obsessed with Mrs Obama. I just love the way she dresses and just in-case you missed it.. here is my plug again… http://www.mrs-o.org

Mid-Life Adoloscence

……. is the only logical explanation as to why I want a bikini, tattoo and skinny jeans . I mean what the heck am I going to do with a bikini. This is what I am asking myself. The other part of me says “because I want one, and I am going to wear it” and I am like “where in the world will you wear it? “I just want one”.

The tattoo, I already know the shop where I will have it done, now I just need to pluck the courage to walk in to browse through their catalouge. Nothing big or scary. It will be somewhere inconspicuous.

As for the skinny jeans, I have been hunting throughout town but alas I hunt in vain. The fact that I cannot find them in my size should tell me something.. but no…no… Mrembo wants skinny jeans so that she can dress like this

These (above) are the longer type which EVERYONE has been wearing during winter with the kinda big baggy shifty shirt/dress blouse tops.

Then these (above) shorter ones are what are now on sale for summer, cause you get to wear them with flats or heels. I intend to wear with flats.

Above is an example of the tops (buggy, dressy/shirt blouse or whatever the right name is) paired with skinny jeans.

Now if Queen Latifah and Beyonce can get them in thier sizes, why am I not finding mine?? I am an in-between size of the two ladies. Not small like Bey and not big like Queen, kinda in the middle.

A bonus pic of Queen. She is like my fashion icon. I love love the way she dresses. Who said larger ladies can’t be hot!
