Posts Tagged ‘Kendra’s Night Out Challenge

So I got an email from Kendra Thornton (pictured below), a travel expert and owner of a PR firm in Chicago. Kendra has been featured on CBS, NBC, CW, FOX, and ABC. She also was on The Nate Show and The Tyra Banks Show! I was elated when she told me that she loved my blog…and my style. Kendra wanted me to be involved in “Kendra’s Fashion Challenge” where selected bloggers choose their favorite looks for her to wear during her upcoming trip to The Big Apple.

Here is what she wrote:

In a few weeks, my friends and I will be going to New York City for a time of fun and excitement. While we are there, we will be visiting some amazing places and having the time of our lives. On one special night, we will be at experiencing The Standard High Line Hotel. I have heard a number of good things about this place, and it will be great to be there. In order for me to stay in this beautiful NYC hotel, I need an outfit that will enhance my night out with my friends. I really am in need of some fashion counsel. That is why I have created “Kendra’s Fashion Challenge.” After all, I am a mother of three, and my priorities have been focused on them and my husband. I am not saying that is a bad thing, but I need some help with my wardrobe.

So, without further ado, here are the top three looks I have chosen for Kendra:

For outfit number two, I switched it up a little. I call this look business with a pop of color. I can envision Kendra in this for sure! The white a-line skirt shows just enough leg to make the guys wonder but not enough to become Miley’s twin. This ensemble can be worn with or without the blazer.

For look number three, I chose a wild card! If Kendra wants to pop out on a cool night with friends in NYC at an art gallery or catching a bite to eat, then she will definitely turn heads with this one. We have hot pink, high-waist, wide-legged pants with a sheer red ruffle blouse, and white pointy toe heels. And let’s not forget the bling.

 

Which look would you prefer for Kendra’s night out?

I got a letter in the mail telling me that I no longer have health insurance. I need allergy shots. Glasses. My yearly physical. My monthly birth control pills. And I was going to enroll in therapy because I need it again. I did break down this morning. But, I will not allow life’s inconveniences to break me fully. But instead mold me. Because with hardship is ease. Because pain is temporary. Because things are falling apart for a reason, a grander scheme and I have to move with it or get crushed in the process. I arrived home last night, and my former roomie took me to get tacos. It was so nice to catch up. I explained to him the woes of moving from his cushy home. That it was a mistake to leave. Because I’ve been going through it. I told him that I’ve cried more in the last two months than I have in the last two years. He said, “When you first moved with me after your divorce, you were in a similar situation. You got through that. How can you get through this?” He was right. I had gotten through that. I thought back to what I did. I know I cried a lot. I beat myself up. Told myself that I should’ve been okay being abused emotionally and whatever else he was doing. That I deserved to be battered because I was a bar person. I also submerged myself into creating. Videos and makeup and stories and narrative and I posted all of that here. That’s how I wrote my whole book. The one that’s being published in October. It wasn’t about money or popularity. I was creating because it felt right. It gave me something to do. What has been that one thing that has always saved you in times of desperation? What’s your motto for when messed up things happen back to back?
