Martin Luther King Jr. said, “No man has a right to rain on your dreams.” He and so many others paved the way so I could try many things. While there are many things I haven’t done, there are lots of things that are now not out of may reach.

Today was Martin Luther King Jr. day and though I may not be changing the world, I have dreams too. While not as lofty or earth shattering as others, one of my dreams is to express myself through fashion. It’s that black and white.

I’ve created a little forum to express myself. It’s nothing political unless you consider some of my style choices (smile). I love to share my looks and the fact that I get to do it and be shared with all types of people who may be different from me is the true blessing.

So I’ll do what I do and I hope despite my similarities or differences from whoever reads this, I can continue to inspire, inform and help people develop a love for developing their own unique style. I always grateful for a day off of work but I’m even more grateful for what this day represents.

For today’s look, I’ve taken Martin Luther King Jr. day quite literally. My look is in black and white with a hint of color slipped in. The boat neck sweater gives my look some personality.  It is an interesting style that you don’t see everyday but that’s what makes its individuality work well. It’s just a little difference but sometimes a little change and the simplest combinations work best together.
