GRACE : BLUSH PINK DRESS & LACE

In a recent conversation with a sorority sister of mine, I spoke about a few personal hardships in balancing being a full-time mother working a full-time job and the necessity to have my own time to pursue my own creative projects. She responded with something that made me rethink the use of my words and my outlook on balance. She said, "You're balancing act is graceful tho". Instantly, I straightened myself up, got dressed in a feminine dress with lace, and declared my power and ability to gracefully balance everything I have been assigned to do.

While grace is normally associated with religion and the grace of God, which I appreciate, GRACE resonates with me personally with movement. The ability for women to use feminine power and grace to create, to provide and sustain a lifestyle that they deem suitable for them is divine. Grace for me is managing the life of other human beings, businesses, and caring for themselves all simultaneously. Giving yourself grace honey for doing all that while being a woman. 

This blush pink crepe dress with its light and flowy movement with lace detailing paired with sexy fishnets made me feel like a WOMAN. A GROWN WOMAN, who can gracefully take on the practice and balancing act of womanhood, motherhood and business.
