“Back to basics”

 

“I do think the heart can balance out the mind; if your heart is in a good place it can give you the strength to do the right thing and behave the right way and overcome the mind.” – Alexis Arguello

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that something great happened to Versicolor Closet yesterday: This look posted last week was featured on the Wendy Williams show and earned me the “Fan of the day” title. I realized I got my 2 minutes of fame when my phone started ringing nonstop while I was working. I got texts, phone calls, Facebook messages, Instagram comments and a bunch of new followers storming in at the same time. I was wondering what was happening and that’s when I realized my friends and followers spotted me on TV. It definitely made my day! Wendy’s comment about me having ‘great legs’ made this all the more surreal. I just know God has even more in store for this little blog of mine and I’m quite humbled and blessed to see all the people – mostly strangers – that are rooting for me. Your support means more to me than you will ever know and for that I say a huge THANK YOU 🙂

About this look: I checked out the JCrew sale for the first time and scored these fab pair of black shorts for less than $15. Paired with an over-sized blazer featuring a black lapel, I ended up with a simple and neutral look great for brunch on the weekend or for a night out. It’s always a good idea to keep your upper half covered when sporting such a leggy look 🙂 It’s all about balance. As you may have noticed lately, my looks have been gravitating more and more around classic pieces. The simpler, the better. 

Be sure to catch the rerun of Wendy’s show if you missed it. I would love to hear your thoughts on the segment. Be well my beauties!

      Hello there mama! U know I actually was wondering what happened to you cause u are never this quiet. Lol I look forward to your long, hilarious comments so I’m glad you’re back 😉

      Thanks so very much. I still haven’t seen the episode myself and I’m not sure when it will air again. It’s the episode with Keke Palmer being interviewed if that helps in searching for it. I don’t watch TV so I wouldn’t know. Lol

      Thanks again for the kind words and support. They mean the world 😉
