“the crowd erupts in applause, but we can’t hear them”
Lemonade. Or the piece of art that changed my life immensely. I will never ever forget the day of its release, I was anxious, impatient, and riveted. The amount of excitement I had was too much to handle and I didn’t know how to verbalize any of it. From the second I saw her in the field wearing a hoodie/gown hybrid, I knew I was in for a life changing experience. At the time of its release I was about to finish my junior year in high school and I was stressed and timid, and somehow it made everything seem ok. The music pulled me in and shook up my understanding of love, forgiveness, racism, empowerment, and heartbreak. To see a woman so powerful and successful, take an uncomfortable and relevant subject like cheating and channel it into art was so astounding. Getting to see, hear and every feel a deeper level of Beyonce’s life was so humbling and I’m forever grateful to her for letting me experience it. While the ultimate break up songs like “Sorry” and “Don’t hurt yourself” we’re an amazing addition to the cheating theme, but if you look too closely into Jay’s possible infidelity, you’ll lose the true meaning of the album. The album was about forgiving someone for ruining you and to stand up for your rights and to be proud of who you are and where you’re from. I will be forever grateful to Beyonce and for her vision and execution of the greatest album of all time.
Now that you know how much Lemonade means to me, I’ll give you the fashion and fun part of this post. Last night I celebrated….wait for it……….MY GRADUATION!!!!!! Yes that’s right, you’re reading a high school graduate’s blog right now! I’m so excited that I’m done with high school forever and can’t wait to start my life! So about that party, it was such an amazing time and I wish I could do it everyday! All my closest friends and family were present and I was surrounded by so much love and I’m so grateful for the people that showed up and slayed! Being me, I asked all my guests to “serve a look” because I’m very into people throwing caution to the wind and pulling out all the stops for an outfit! I ordered this jumpsuit from ASOS after having fallen in love with it weeks before! It’s one of the most comfortable things I’ve ever worn and I don’t regret wearing it for a second! Obviously the party was Lemonade themed (argo the prologue) and I’m so happy with how everything turned out! Thank you to everyone for coming and serving and for being so loving and supportive!!!! Catch the looks below 😉 and have a great week!
