Hi Darlings, Happy New Week. Last week started off pretty gloomy with all the rain on the East Coast, but on Thursday, July 26th, which was Liberian Independence Day, something spectacular happened. My adorable nephew Christian Lee Jones was born on the very day mama Liberia gain its independence. What a day to be born right. The entire family is just so thrilled, thankful and delighted to welcome him into our big loving family.
White contains an equal balance of all the colors of the spectrum, representing both the positive and negative aspects of all colors. Its basic feature is equality, implying fairness and impartiality, neutrality and independence. It is interesting to note that babies come into the world with a perfect balance of white, ready to imprint their lives with all the colors of the spectrum (hopefully!) from all their life experiences, which I find to be a wonderful thing.
The evening of Christian’s birthday, I had an event I was hosting at an art gallery in Philadelphia. In his honor I decided to wear an all white attire to celebrate his birth. Children are such a wonderful gift, and me being the proud Auntie that I am, I couldn’t think of a better way to honor the little angel than to wear a color that represents such purity.
White is pure and is the color of perfection. The psychological meaning of white is purity, innocence, wholeness and completion. My sister has always wanted a son and has expressed to our family that having a boy would complete her beautiful family, so we were happy that dream came true for her. With all that in mind I knew that him joining us in the world was a huge blessing, and I wanted to continue the rest of my evening with him in mind by wearing a fabulous white attire.
My outfit of choice for the evening was a dress with a matching futuristic cape designed by me. What I love most about the dress was how feminine yet masculine it was. The dress had very beautiful details with a choker type neck piece that clipped in the back and connected beautifully to the body of the dress. The entire shoulder and neck of the dress looked like a masterpiece designed to appear like I was wearing a statement jewelry. I wanted my dress to be form-fitting and show off my waistline, which I was able to accomplish because the dress was measured to my size and body type. The cape was very structured and I even placed shoulder pads in it to make it more defined. I intentionally made the cape longer than the dress because I wanted the finished look to appear dramatic to the eye.
When I wear clothes, I want to look like art and express myself in a way that is true to who I am as a person. Why wear clothes if it doesn’t tell a story and represent the wonderful person that you are? Clothes allow me to express myself in so many ways. I dress to express the beauty in the world. The endless thoughts that flow in my head of things that inspire me, move me. This white outfit told my story that day. It represented strength, over pouring joy, power, and completeness — all the things I felt when I first laid eyes on baby Christian as he curled in my arms with such purity and goodness.
