DOTD: Showstopper… at least the shoes anyway

Today I had on my favorite shoes. I love these shoes because they make people stop and pay attention. I had multiple people today say something about these shoes… and well I already know my loyal readers love them.

I was going to say something super great and awesome… but you know… today was LONG!!! And all I want to do is lay down and watch a little television before I pass out into a peaceful slumber. So needless to say… I’m completely blank in my brain. I’m just proud of myself for posting 2 days in a row… So… How are things with you?
**best thing I heard today: “
I bet people follow you around taking pictures of your legs when you wear those shoes” (heard from a lady who owns a local consignment shop who couldn’t stop fawning over my shoes)**



What I’m Wearing Today:
Dress: Wal-mart
Blazer: Curve Appeal Consignment
Shoes: Steve Madden
Earrings: Wal-mart

DOTD: No more GRAY days

So I have to admit that I’ve been in a rut. So much of a rut that I really didn’t even feel like myself. I felt ugly, unfashionable, and just plain boring. I couldn’t seem to get myself out of this funk that seemed to take over my entire being. I tried and tried and all I kept seeing was the diva I once was. I couldn’t seem to recapture her… and then something weird happened this weekend. After nursing a stomach virus of the worst kind… I suddenly felt like okay… now I’m ready. So yesterday, I got up… got dressed and put on some of the best makeup I’ve done in a while. I then went and ran around town with the family and I noticed something… people were smiling at me again. I felt like people were picking up my fabulous vibe.

So today I got up and put on a one of my favorite tops and favorite booties and threw on a pair of slacks. I am regretting the decision of wearing them with these wide leg pants. I think it makes the outfit look a bit too sloppy. But I was determined to blog today and to let you all know that I’m not dead. I’m not giving up my blog… because I realized one thing while I was wallowing in self pity… there is a need for me on line. There are young, mature, and older plus size women out there who could use some positive reinforcement that they are beautiful. These women look in the mirror each day and hate what they see and think that the world also sees ugliness based on their size. I want to show that they are beautiful and demand the world pay attention to what power us plus size ladies possess…

So… onto the fashion… btw… I missed you **big smiles**

DOTD: Who dat is?

Yeah I know that you are probably wondering who I am. Hi… I am QueenDiva and I am a fashion blogger who has failed terribly at posting consistently lately. I was trying my hardest to be part of the Six Take post but I just couldn’t get myself out of this “rut” I had fallen into. I love fashion but for whatever reason it just wasn’t in me to get dressed each day. But I did, and I then I would say today I am going to take some awesome pictures and give my readers something to look at… and then… I didn’t. Anyway enough of that… Here is my DivaLook of the Day (DOTD).

I am still working and just generally loving life. I have been living a rollercoaster life… but at the end of the day… I am happy. Sorry I don’t have much more to say. I haven’t been sleeping well so just before starting to write this post I took 2 pills to sleep through the night… and I must say… they are kicking in…

So… what have you been up to? If you comment on this post… I promise to stop by your blog and check out what I’ve missed (I’m so terribly behind on that too… lol). Also… if you can’t tell… this skirt is polka dotted…



What I’m Wearing Today:
Top: Dots
Pin Dot Skirt: City Chic
Turquoise Shoes: ShoeDazzle 
Bracelets: Torrid/Ashley Stewart 
Ring/Earrings: Beauty Supply
Butterfly Brooch: Burlington Coat Factory

DOTD: Looking Soooo Familiar

Today’s title comes from the fact that I have worn a similar outfit like I don’t know how many times. But it also stems from the fact that when I was looking at these photos, I saw glimpses of my mother. I really look like her. More and more each day. I know that some people don’t want to look like their mothers… but my mother is beautiful and I love that I have pieces of her beauty on my face.

So this week, I have been feeling like crap. I caught a case of sadness that I couldn’t seem to shake. Until yesterday when it came crashing around my ankles. I just was not myself. My daycare provider noticed and so did hubby. He called me shortly after he left this morning to ask me what was wrong. I told him that I had no definitive answer. That I think I’m depressed… but that I had resumed taking my pills (I had missed a few days). He told me that I can’t wait until I fel badly to resume taking my pills. I have to take them everyday. I know he’s right. And I do try to take them each day. But some days… time gets away from me. And before you know it… I’m not well at all. I try to stay positive in mind and heart… but depression feels like I am carrying around another person on my shoulders. It’s exhausting. Everything seems to take 1000% more energy. Energy I don’t have.

But today… I felt like the old me. I even tweeted. Because I am medicated and I also told myself… Don’t let life get you down… especially when I have so many awesome loving people who care about me.

Enough about sadness… let’s talk… anger… I am short fused lately. So much so… I want to like punch complete strangers for just their random acts of stupidity. I mean… have you noticed that people do dumb *ish and then look at you like “what?” Would you like examples?

Okay yesterday I went to the grocery store for 2 items. I ended up getting stuck in the “express lane” for 10 minutes. This cashier was so damn slow and chatty. I wanted to scream!! Her dumb arse should have been on a regular line… NOT EXPRESS.

Also, my daughter got her hair done by a new shop. They did NOT do the job I am accustomed to and I found out after we got home… they had BURNED HER EAR!! WTH?!!! My baby said she didn’t say anything because she didn’t want to be a baby (how sad is that…) still mad about that.

Then the piece de resistance (so not spelling that right… I’m certain) But this a$$hole truck driver today decides… you know what… I want to be in the left lane… I think I will just get over. So he did, almost running over me in the process. So I took a picture of his license numbers  on the side of his truck. And I will be contacting his company. If he gets fired… oh well… he could kill someone… what a ginormous jackass.

Any way… I feel like maybe I’m being too sensitive. Maybe I’m filled with too much anger. But then another part of me wants to accept the fact that these things upset me. I am a firm believer that you have to embrace your feelings. Too many people are so busy trying to be calm and collected because they don’t want others to see them upset. But you know what? God gave us emotions for a reason. If he wanted us to always be muted and unfeeling, he wouldn’t have created such a wide range of emotions. I know far too many people who act as though showing emotion is being a drama queen. Then I want to be a drama queen and I want to be surrounded by drama queens. Because I like knowing when my friends are happy, sad, and angry. If you hold everything in… you’re just… I don’t know… boring? a step away from a stroke? You have to experience life and emotion. Even if it's something you think others may not want to see… because guess what? It’s not about them… You have to do you… because I’m going to be me… regardless!!! What do you think? Do you hold your feelings in or are you embracing your inner drama queen? When was the last time you cried and why? Now… onto the fashion…
