Confession of the Anti-TomBoy

December 29, 2009 2 comments

Before I get extra deep into my blog and me blogging away, let me give you some back ground on me.

I am 36 Black Woman, of a very mixed dna mixture, No Kids,never married, but i am dating a great guy and an assistant project manager by day for a construction company.  I am a die hard Chicagoan, and an Alumnae of Tuskegee University, a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and Gamma Sigma Sigma National Service Sorority *whew that was a mouth full*

Thats the basic boring stuff…I was a prissy little girl who’s mom is a TomBoy. It was interesting growing up, my Mom made sure i knew how to play sports and change a flat tire, my Dad made sure i knew how to fight.  They both encouraged me to grow up and be what i could be and never let the fact that i was black or a woman stand in my way.

But there was something really interesting with me and my Mom.  She is a die hard TomBoy.  Now she wears dresses but getting all dolled up is not her thing, but it was mine.

I have been a budding fashion diva since i can remember.  One of my fondest memories is going shopping for my Easter outfit.  Which consisted of a bomb diva dress The dress was the start, it was usually pink or red or purple the 3 colors i lived by as a kid, still do today. Then you had to find the right shoes Patten Leather was/is one of my favorite materials for shoes and bags…. i would have the matching shoes usually black or white and of course the coordinating bag and of course your thinking thats it right? No not for Vonetta, i had the anklets, gloves and hat to match

While i miss the days of me getting a new easter and christmas dress *yes i got a new one for each with all the bells and whistles that go with it* I do not do the matchy matchy thing any more lol

But cant you see the start of a young fashion diva, make-up was a whole different ball of wax lol

How did you start out on your fashion road?

Love & Peace
