Allow me to re-introduce myself . . .
Hey ya'll, I'm Demetrice. I am a 30 plus, single mother, born and raised in NC, who loves working with at-potential students in higher education, but my hidden passion is fashion. My blog is all about how I am able to stay trendy and fashionable on an educator's budget, with a mix of my natural hair journey.
IMPR(4L)ess is inspired by all of my friends and colleagues who believe in my fashion sense. I was also inspired by a number of fashion blogs dedicated to daily outfits, fashion deals, and style/wardrobe tips. My personal and professional style is very basic, with a few trendy pieces added every season. I typically opt for quality name brand staples paired with less expensive trends. I love NY&CO, Nine West, and The Limited, but I also wear George by Walmart and Merona by Target. I shop everywhere; Goodwill, Outlets, Consignment Stores, Department Stores, and Online!
DREAM BIG: God never gives you a vision unless he has already given you the ability.
I recently took a little break from blogging to clear my mind and to ask myself "why am I doing this?" Blogging is not as simple as taking some pictures and posting some outfits, but requires time and energy that I don't always have. I was constantly reminded by family and friends that I had already been given the ability and tools to take IMPR(4L)ess to endless possibilites but my vision was unclear. The future of IMPR(4L)ess is way beyond just blogging about fashion. I want to offer workshops/events for young professionals who are trying to define their own personal style, help young women build a wardrobe of quality staples on a budget, and eventually open up a consignment shop where young professionals can shop with confidence (THINK BIG).
