Fashion, Charm, + Glamour | “Galloping Horse” Happy New Year From Finicky!


fashioncharmglamour_logo

For most, (if not ALL of us) our resolutions are typically the same every year. The top resolutions I’ve noticed in my circle of friends and family are to lose weight, maintain a healthier diet, to be financially stable, and strengthen whatever religious beliefs they choose to practice. Of course we make these commitments in hope to look better, feel better, live better, and become prosperous in all things right!? But how do you plan to motivate yourselves DAILY in achieving the ultimate goal? When creating a plan, you must incorporate what will keep your eye on the prize. Every day you must practice, work on, and cling to something or someone that will inspire you to overcome your setbacks. As one of my favorite professors at Jackson State University tells us, “Practice doesn’t make Perfect class! PERFECT practice makes perfect.”

Now I’m sure you are wondering what does New Year’s resolution have to do with ‘Galloping Horse’ right? Please allow me to start from the beginning. As I sit quietly on the passenger side reading one of the many Fashion Bibles (as I like to call them) In Style Magazine the January 2014 issue with the beautiful and talented Britney Spears on the cover, I stumble across page 31 titled “What’s NOW! Hot to Trot!” I’m intrigued by the references they make to THE YEAR OF THE HORSE, which most of you may already be familiar with. For those of you who are not, the horse is one of the Chinese’s 12 animal zodiac signs. In comparison to our zodiac signs, you must be born in a certain month. However, with the Chinese zodiac sign you must be born during a certain year as well. Not to force my beliefs/disbeliefs or the Chinese beliefs/disbeliefs but I found that the characteristics of the people who were born during THE YEAR OF THE HORSE quite interesting, admirable, uplifting and remarkable. Just to name a few:

  • Great sense of humor
  • Outgoing
  • Hard workers
  • Great strength
  • Great at multitasking
  • Very energetic
  • Freethinkers

By a show of hands, how many of you all would love to show ownership of these amazing qualities? First, we must plan, prioritize, & put things into perspective! As I sit at my kitchen table, I begin to research those who were born during this time and I am filled with courage and strength to live out my purpose in hopes to one day be as successful and sought after as they are today. Just to name a few:

  • Oprah Winfrey
  • Denzel Washington
  • Aretha Franklin

On December 9, 2013, I decided to resign from my job of six years to build my Finicky About Fashion brand and pursue my career as a Personal Shopper and Fashion Stylist. As the old Baptist folk say “Nobody told me the road would be easy but I don’t believe he brought me this far to leave me”. There was a bit of fear in the beginning of course, but FEAR AND FAITH don’t work well together. In order to look better, feel better, live better, and become prosperous in all things I must trust in him, obey his word, create a plan, put my plan in action, look for ways to encourage myself, and keep the faith! You my Finicky Friends must do the same.

Now to the real reason I chose ‘Galloping Horse’ while searching for pictures to place on the collage the necklace which is now sold out on http://www.topshop.com was called ‘Galloping Horses’ Collar Necklace. I then turn to Merriam Webster dictionary for the definition of galloping and it reads:

  • Progressing, developing, or increasing rapidly

Instantly, my faith smiles and provokes me to keep on keeping on! For Finicky is advancing and making Progress. She is building and Developing a legacy for her brand. Lastly, due to her obedience and sacrifices her faith and blessings are Increasing at a rapid pace! J

So go on, create a plan, stick to it, seek the almighty, keep the faith, and embrace your inner GALLOPING HORSE!

P.S. It wouldn’t be Finicky of me if I didn’t remind you to do it in style! Here are a few “Galloping Horse” inspired pieces you can add to your closet.

GALLOPING HORSE

HAPPY NEW YEAR
