{Blouse: Bloom | Jeans: Gap | Heels: Similar}

By the time you will read this, I will be up in the air on my way to New York City. Technically this is during fashion week, but sadly no one accepted my offer to walk the runway for them this year. Some people just don’t know a good thing when they see it. Instead I’ll be speaking Wednesday on a panel about entrepreneurship at the IFB Conference. (Remember the post when everyone thought I hashtagged bacon? Ah yes, now it’s all coming back to you. That conference.)

I had big plans for a sock bun tutorial this week and a few other cool posts but I ran out of time. Next week I’ll post a bun tutorial, I promise. But I promise like a bad ex-boyfriend who lies. So don’t hold your breath.

    I love the rolled up denim style!

  • nathyness

    "I promise like a bad ex-boyfriend who lies." Classic Kendi humor! Love it!

    My favorite part of this look is the shoes. They are so pointy and vintagey. I got a pair like that the other day from Modcloth, except they're glittery! Can't wait for them to arrive!

    I've been obsessed with this blog for probably over a year now.  Wish I had the chance to attend the conference.  You should of held a meetup for all your NYC fans!! Not that this weather is conducive to looking cute.  My hair expanded to new heights on my way home last night.  Curly hair problems right?  Good luck today gurrrrl!

    Beautiful top!  This is why I could never own my own clothing boutique… I'd be too tempted to get high on my own supply, lol!


  • http://caseylynndesigns.com/Blog Casey Lynn

    I just must tell you out of any blog I read, and I read a lot of blogs, you are my favorite writer. Seriously your so funny and honest. For example I laughed out loud when I read this "But I promise like a bad ex-boyfriend who lies. So don't hold your breath." Seriously I envy your wit! Thanks for the adding some joy and laughter to the day!

  • Spalculi11

    Thank you! You inspire me to dress out of my comfort zone! I love the shoes:)

  • Genie

    I love those pumps, they make your legs look nice and tan. Congrats on the IFB panel, I wish I were going to that and fashion week of course… 

  • Talesdemileto

    Ouch… these pointy shoes are too cheap, lacking clearly class.  Pointy shoes are awful, I expect they don't come back.  I would be indulgent in other girl, but you are too classy and chic for such poor shoes.

    Best regards for the best model and blogger

    Kendi, you're so quotable! "I promise like a bad ex-boyfriend who lies" You made me giggle out loud. Is there an acronym for that? Perhaps we all can join forces and start typing out GOL.
