I don’t know how many hours of my life have been spent waiting for the bus.

For most of you who don’t know me personally, which would be like everyone; I spent a good chunk of my life living in Brooklyn. Let’s say around 20 years give and take, which means I am older than 20 *winks. Now, people often think that living in a major city means mass transportation is everywhere…that is basically true, but for people who live off the nether branches of the transportation tree, sometimes you feel like your neighborhood is the cog in the great wheel called the MTA.
Cog or not, my neighborhood is beautiful, and I often miss it.
If you live in my old neighborhood you have three options…you can walk the 15/20 minutes downtown to Atlantic Avenue, you can wait on the B-38, or take the G train . I typically walked because I hate to wait (also as a child my mother always made me take the bus…has cheek pinching trauma flashbacks), plus try navigating a full cup of coffee with ease on the B-38 in the morning. we could bet on the percentage consumed by your clothing, hopefully not your neighbors clothing as well, and the bus itself.
There are times…where walking isn’t a viable option, and that is when bad weather strikes. Snow, I laugh at…rain, not so much. Rain is like the ultimate frowney face living in a pedestrian city.
Sometimes you just have to wait…even if it is impatiently.
I would like to mention that there are a few blogs that have also covered some of the same pieces I am wearing. I am in love with these fashionistas, so I am going to mention them here. Bootsy Bubbles, So Many Styles.
It is safe to say everyone is in love with this TokiD cardi, I am, the pattern, the colors…yum. The skirt I am wearing is from the secret store, as well as the red wool tights. Maylee’s designs are gorgeous, her fall releases especially in my opinion. She always gets texture oh so right, and isn’t afraid of patterns and color. TokiD also isn’t afraid of pattern, and I like that their color palate is a bit different.
Also back to CHANTKARE, this necklace is gorgeous, makes me want to put it in a sammich; if that aint love folks I don’t know what is. I think it is important with assecories…that they make an impact, but are also versatile…so whoop whoop . You can find this piece at Modavia, at the moment.
The skin I am wearing is from Lelutka, I did toss on a tanning layer…*sings,Brown Skin Lady! I love the versatility of Lelutka skins, they photograph beautifully offer a ton of options and there isn’t one makeup that I am like…hears record skipping. In the post before this, and the one after, I am wearing Flutter (Lelutka skin), and to me they look oh so different.
My lovely loafers are from Lelutka as well, often times I wish they would stop making shoes, so I wouldn’t have to go broke…Let’s face it if Lelutka stopped creating, I would probably have a nervous breakdown. Whose the SL shopping addict? *raises her hand.
This hair, also from Lelutka is spot on texture wise (if you happen to have hair like mine), totally makes me think of myself in 1998, I was such a huge fan of Janet Jackson, and when the velvet rope dropped; I died my hair this color. I think a lyric from the Joni Mitchell song she used as a hook on this album fits this post.
