Golden Kaleidoscope: "This is the L-I-Y-A-H"

"This is the L-I-Y-A-H"

Let's face it, sometimes you don't want to wear a dress and high heels. Some days you wanna be "one of the guys". I was watching an old school Aaliyah music video and it inspired me. She had this sexy tomboy attitude about her. It wasn't overly masculine; it was perfect.Since the anniversary of her passing was a few days ago I decided to do an Aaliyah inspired outfit post. Her music, life, even style of dress affected my life so much that I attempted her signature over the eye hairstyle, and I wasn't able to see in class. I was cute though! Her life was tragically cut way too short but, at least we have her music and movies to carry on her legacy.

This is my homage to the beautiful Aaliyah

"I stay true to myself and my style,
 and I am always pushing myself to
 be aware of that and be original."- Aaliya

 “Well, I think that the image is a part of me. I wear the baggy pants , the hats, the whole nine. And you know, I may add a little for the excitement and the intrigue in the videos, but my family has told me that little air of mystery that surrounds me is for real.”-Aaliyah

One in a million.

" Keep working hard and you can get anything that you want. If God gave you the talent, you should go for it. But don't think it's going to be easy. It's hard!”-Aaliyah

Sunglasses-Street Vendor
Shoe-Charlotte Russe

"I don't think about my previous success. I'm happy that the work I've done has been very successful".-Aaliyah
