In The Fashionista's Closet: Sir Mix-A-Lot

I sent Reiko a pic of me in this outfit and she texted me back to stop playing in my closet and put on what I was really going to wear. I told her I was wearing it and had in fact already left the house. I went to a friend's surprise birthday party and my friend was surprised...to see me in something form fitting. I'm trying to change it up a little...

Tank: Forever 21
Necklaces: Chain belts, vintage pendant necklace
Skirt: Forever 21 (It was six bucks!)
Bangles: H&M
Clutch: DSW
Shoes: Steve Madden Luxe 

I attended a pool party on Saturday night and there was a drunk guy who kept trying to get my number.
Every other sentence was peppered with "Know what I'm saying?" but came out sounding like "Naah im sayen?" and no, I really didn't know what he was saying.


We had the following exchange:

Him: Yeah, you look real classy. Like superstar status. I think we on the same level, naah im sayen?
Me: Ummmm kaaaayyy....
Him: I ain't trying to brag or nuthin but this hat cost a hunnad fitty dollars. It's called a buck fitty.
Me: Does it DO something? (There was a big face watch on the hat with rhinestones around it.) Does the watch WORK?
Him: Naw, it's a Chi-town thang, naah im sayen?
*awkward silence*

*And an extra side eye to the people who always want to point out that "they ain't from here."

Me: "Ok, well we're about to go..."
Him: You go to church?
Me: Yes.
Him: I KNEW there was a glow around you, naah im sayen?

*Insert another awkward silence*

WHO KNEW that there was a glow around you when you attended church??? Did yall know that? Maybe it's common knowledge and you get the glow with Communion. I told my friend that I should have told him that I was glowing because I was pregnant....

I added this pic because I was dared to...

I'm dying at this post! LMAO!! na'am sayin'?!?! lol! I hate that with some guys, learn to VERBALIZE. use adjectives, nouns, pronouns and stop all that extra shit( that was extra of me) like "na'am sayin" and putting "man" at the end and beginning of every sentence. "Man, you look so good...man"....I'm not a man or your man.

you didn't give him your number did you. That skirt was cute and "SHAWT" lol!

Moni @ CL Journal said...

Girl, please tell me that you made this conversation up. I cannot believe that in the 21st Century men are still ending a conversation with "naah im sayen?" OMG! That went out with Flava Flav back in the '90's!

I'll never forget in the mid-'90's we were driving on the NJ Turnpike going to work in NYC. Flav and Ed Lover were on the radio were they were morning hosts for Hot 97. Flav was telling a story but must have said "naah im sayen" at least 30 times in a minute. Ed finally lost it and said "Naw man I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU SAYIN, cause you haven't SAID IT YET!!!"

We had to pull over on the shoulder of the turnpike cause we were laughing so hard...

Ms. Tee said...

Looking fab! Very chic!

That dialogue between you and ole boy from Chicago is hilarious! He is a cornball! He needs to stop trying to so hard with those lame pick up lines. Apparently the glow comes from that halo over your head...LOL.
