Feel-Good Fashion… By: Nyesha “Rayne” Gilzene


Remember when you were a little girl and you always wanted to dress up in your mama’s clothes?  Stepping into her high heels made you feel like you were on top of the world.  Carrying her pocketbook which was almost twice your size, made you feel important and putting on her jewelry made you feel pretty. 

Well, as an adult, it’s no different.  There’s just something about fashion that makes a girl feel good.  From the mature retro 60’s to the hip 70’s to the spunky 80’s and the funky 90’s…fashion gives you the freedom to live out loud! It will take you from feeling like a sassy chick to a sophisticated woman. 

The handbags, the jewelry, the glasses and the shoes are all the necessary essentials that add just the right flavor to an outfit.  Even a girl’s hair plays a huge role in fashion.  Whether it’s your nappy natural or your kinky twists or your spirally curls, they all add a special touch.

Not to mention, there’s also something about fashion that boosts a girl’s esteem.  Even if you are experiencing somewhat of a crappy day, looking good helps you to feel good.  It puts a smile on your face and can cause you to realize that your problems aren’t all that important.  You are!

It’s going to be exciting to see what the future of fashion holds this summer.  Mixing loud, solid colors seem to be on the horizon.  So I plan to stock my closet with plenty of blues and greens and yellows and pinks and all the accessories to top them off. 


What about you?...
