Entry 050: My 50th Post…Remembering My Dad

DSCN0259

How fitting…My parents were together for 50 years and this is my fiftieth post! One year ago today, I lost the only MAN that meant the world to me, My father! Words cannot express how much I miss him. As I write this post, Whitney Houston is playing and I am drowning in tears. If you know me, you know that I am a true Daddy’s girl! We had the most special relationship and living without him has been painful, to say the least. I am trying everyday, to be strong and continue his legacy, but it is the most difficult thing to do. I constantly wonder if I’ve made him proud. He told me many times, so I should just take comfort in that. One of the many things my Dad taught me was to never give up on anything or anyone and I strive to make people better through my actions and interactions. I don’t want to go on and be sad about losing him, but I can’t help it.

My Dad was a wonderful man with a great sense of humor. He lit everything and everyone up around him and his smile could brighten up the darkest of days. Today, my mother, sisters, son, niece and nephew visit his grave at the National Cemetery to reflect and remember the great man that he was! He shaped all of our lives and I don’t know where any of us would be without him.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post! Until next time!

XOXO Kimsue

Entry 037: Spring Into Spring 2015

Looking to spruce up your spring wardrobe? With tomorrow marking the first official day of spring (although it will snow) there are only a few things that you need to add to your closet to make this spring one to remember!shoecult 1. Stacked heels – are back in a big way! I was born in the 70s and I am partial to that era in fashion. Stacked heels, unlike stiletto’s are very easy to walk in and give you more balance. Pair them with wide legged jeans for a cool 70s feel.

2. Menswear shoes – As much as I LOVE heels, flats are a must and are very popular right now. you can do so much with flats. you can dress them up or down; with jeans, skirts and dresses!

3. Bucket Bags! – They’re fashionable and functional. If you’re like me, you carry a lot in your purse unless you’re wearing a clutch. I have to carry medication and other necessities, so the bigger the bag, the better.

4. Printed clutches – The best way to print mix is to add a printed clutch and you are instantly in style!

5. Pearl Chokers – Pearls are coming back in a big way. They aren’t just for breakfast at Tiffany’s. You can add pearls to just about any outfit to make a classy statement. To make it a little edgy, make it a choker with pearls! You’re sure to turn a few heads.

6. Big Hats – I for one, am not a fan of hats. I love them, but I don’t wear them much. This is something that I would like to add to my fashion repertoire
