This past weekend I participated in the 2nd Annual Women’s March. It has been one hell of a year since last year’s march. I’m not into politics at all, but a Hispanic woman like myself can’t ignore the words and actions that comes out of this presidency. So many emotions ran through my mind, looking around at people of all genders, ages, nationality, sexual preference all with the same American Dream. How can one person try take that away from us?
I grew up in a household with my 3 siblings of parents who immigrated from the Dominican Republic. We are not just first generation, we are THE generation. In my parents eyes, they did the right thing coming to this country, raising educated women, providing for us so that we didn’t struggle in life, to the point where we now can provide for them.
It’s never too late to get out there, speak up and fight for your rights! It is never too late to work hard for your dreams. BE FEARLESS!
And what do fun fearless females wear? Wild wild wild coats! I’ve wanted a leopard coat for a while now and I guess it was just bad timing…until now.
During the Cyber Monday sale I was able to get my hands on this faux fur for, wait for it… $23! Since then we’ve been a match made in Heaven. If you know don’t know me, know this: I love animal print, so it was just a matter of time before I got my paws on a classic piece to add to my wardrobe. I left room underneath for a playful sheer blouse and a pair of snatched attack high waist jeans. I wore patent high heels and a patent tote for a polished work appropriate look. I kept my makeup simple, but if you want to get really wild, wear a seductive red lip to bring all the boys and the girls to the yard. 😉
What brings out your wild side? Tell me your fearless story! 🙂
