Question of the day........

Why do I feel so guilty for liking Chris Brown's new song? Just asking, We'll Talk!


"An ounce of image is worth a pound of performance"- Peter's Placebo

I have a confession...I went to work today looking a mess! Subsequently, my day turned out to be a mess....The weather was terrible, rainy and cold (like that had anything to do with my outfit)and I got nothing done! I wore gold ballet flats (nine west), blue sailor pants (NY&Co), a sheer leopard print top(Banana Republic) and a brown cardigan(J.Crew)...I would've taken a pic but I didn't want to be associated with this look, lol so I didn't. Do you think that the way you dress lends itself to your performance at work? If you look good you get a confidence boost (so I've heard)and according to Deon Sanders If you look good, you feel good, and if you feel good you play good, and if you play good they pay good! So on that note I'ma do better tomorrow...Inspiration Anyone? WE'LL TALK!

I'm in LOVE!

Buh-Bye to my tuition reimbursement check!

Wow, I love these shoes....I'd be 6'9" in these shoes as they do have a 5 1/8" heel. I am REALLY considering purchasing these, they would look great with so many of the things I own. I work in the banking/financial industry so I'm not sure if I can make these happen on casual Friday; but I would definitely try it!

Body and Hair-spiration!

Kenya Moore....'nuff said!

That hair, I'm barely APL (hair that stops at my arm pit)

That figure, mine is a WIP (work in progress)

....and one day it will all be mine (picture me laughing like an evil scientist)

With that said.......I'm off to the gym, We'll talk!

Come on People OWN it!

Okay, so today is my BIG day, not only is it my birthday (the big 32) but this morning I decided to start blogging. So while I’m attempting to (very awkwardly by the way) introduce myself to the web log world I get an email about blog action day. I think to myself, blog action day, what’s that about! Humph, so I see, bloggers from all over the world posting about the same issue on the same day to spark discussion about an issue of global importance. Now I’m thinking to myself I can almost bet the discussion is not about fashion, I mean it’s important to me but……I digress. Okay the topic is Climate Change. Well at least it’s something I’ve heard of….I think. I believe it means a long term shift in the weather (not good) and apparently if we don’t take drastic steps to rectify this situation our future generations are gonna have problems! We can all pitch in and do our part, things like driving less, meatless Wednesdays (or all week, like me), eat local (farmers market), plant trees, inflate your tires, teleconference instead of work related travel, recycle and use recycled products and last, but certainly not least….turn off the dag on light when you leave the room (or even while you’re in the room during the day)! Here at IownKandiSTYLE I like to encourage people to own their style (especially vintage and thrift) and I want to encourage people to take personal responsibility and OWN their part in making sure our planet is still around for future generations.


The Intro

********Blog Update 2/18/2010....We are no longer called IownKandiSTYLE! BKA Kandi-STYLE's point of view*******

Hello everyone it’s me……… KandiSTYLE! Welcome to the IownKandiSTYLE blog! I call this blog IownKandiSTYLE because in a nutshell that’s just what it is. It’s my style (like it or not) and I own it (like it or not). I’m a southern girl with a southern aesthetic…notice I did not say country that was very intentional! I will explore topics other than clothes/fashion; which include but are not limited to: Finances (I work hard for my money), Fitness, hair care, book reviews, food, and home d├ęcor (I love this stuff)! We’ll talk!
