Orange is the new black | Cut out padded maxi dress


Happy Tuesday Beauties,

Another day to be grateful for, another outfit post to share with you all , though this sexy orange number is a dress I wouldn’t have worn before; not even during my teenage years, not even when I had a flatter belly and/or narrower midsection. Why?
Simply because of the morals I was raised upon. A well-educated girl, or a grown woman, or a Christian, or a lady, or a married woman, or all of the above shouldn’t show too much skin, her mid-section/belly in public… feel free to insert any other societal construct you want in here… but I digress.

I’m in a period of my life where I’m embracing every part of my journey, my body, my femininity, my flaws, and my assets to regain my true inner confidence, despise the many changes throughout the years, to accept who I have become while working toward the woman I’m truly destined to be. This journey has no destination, as I don’t really know where it’s taking me, but I am enjoying every single moment of it! I’m enjoying the process.

While I’m not advocating for anything I’m saying here, I just want women to know that
the journey of healing, the journey of doing the work is never done. We continue to grow, evolve, and uncover new depths of self.

One mistake I see a lot of women (including myself until up to some point of my life) make is thinking that doing the work is separate from building your empire, following your dreams, and still being a badass.

The two work together and go hand in hand! You don’t need to stop your life and wait to be “healed”.

There is nothing that forbids or prevents you from being a creator of your destiny; not even healing!
SO… let’s go girl! Embrace every part of your journey, do the work, go through the healing the way only you think is good for you, but just don’t sit on the sidelines. Go through it. Live through it.🧡

    You look amazing in this orange color, Edwige! And I love your point of view on healing- it’s never done and you can’t pause all your dreams in order to do it!
