Fashion, UN-Fashion and the In Between

Hey ya'll...

I am on a mission. I am trying to find ways to incorporate fashion into each of my diary entries. And because fashion permeates some facet of my everyday life, it really shouldn't be that difficult. WRONG! Just because I am the Diva-at-Large, doesn't mean that I don't come down with a case of the banal and routine blues. So this week I dug deep into my fabulicious soul and came up with some interesting topics that could be considered fashionable or NOT.

UN-fashionable - Reefer bongs and gold medals just don't mix. The controversy concerning marijuana use continues. Its effect on the body and whether or not it should be legal are still debatable points. But the fact is, weed is still considered an illegal drug in all cases but cancer treatment. Note to Michael Phelps: Although you've won 8 Olympic gold medals and may feel like you are impervious to scrutiny over little things like smokin' the pipe, you're really not! Just ask my friends at Kellogg's.

Fashionable - Congratulations, Ms. Jennifer Hudson. I am proud like you're my family! You taught the world how to be resilient after tragedy strikes. And you won your first Grammy for the Best R&B Album with grace, elegance and as always humility. And your SuperBowl rendition of the national anthem was off the hook! Go on, Girl!

"Whatever floats your boat" Fashion - God bless the woman who recently gave birth to octuplets. I'm anxious about having one! But then I found out she already had six other children at home! All I know is that I am going to send positive thoughts to those babies, because they are going to have to rely on a higher power (and a community) to survive the madness that will ensue once they come home from the hospital.

P.S.: Forgive my ignorance, but who is Robert Plant and Alison Krauss? Either way, congratulations to you too!

Love Life, Love Fashion!!
