Today is suicide prevention day, worldwide. The fact that this issue is so widespread that it is a day that needs to be recognized worldwide should tell you something. I’m going to speak about a key element that’s essential to understanding how to go on with life when you have difficulty in doing so: FAITH. The picture above encapsulates so much and can mean something different to each person. It could mean that God is the Ultimate (which he is) and the way to getting better, to things getting better.
But that’s not what this post or the pic is about. This is about you. Specifically, you having faith in YOU. Please don’t get me wrong, God is the will and the way. But what of you? You that

The elements of lace effectively softened each look.
Today begins one of the most exciting times of the year. No, not Christmas, it’s NEW YORK FASHION WEEK (NYFW)! And the official kick off of fashion month. I’m always delighted to attend NYFW, but this is vastly different from others. This year there should be a ton of diversity on the runway (hopefully). POC will be debuting their collections, while celebrities like Rihanna are branching out and showing different aspects of their creativity. The last couple seasons we’ve seen more political wear. Let’s see is the overall picture changes this year. Stay here for designers that stood out this season and the coming trends.
It’s a typical summer day. The heat is sweltering and everyone is talking about how it’s only going to get hotter as the day progresses. The humidity is at an all time high and you’ve got not one but three events to go to. You’ll be gone from late morning to late evening. The question is what on earth do you wear for such situations?
The perfect outfit of choice is the caftan. You literally can’t go wrong. Not only are caftans available in a wide variety of styles, you can get them in a ton of different fabrics. So you can buy whatever suits your bodily needs. Let’s say you have a situation like I’ve outlined above, you’ll need to put on something that’s chic, but can also carry you throug
