Ladies Put Some Clothes On

To The Ladies: Put Some Clothes On!

There is a time and place for your revealing clothes, Social Media Is NOT One

Universal Pictures

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has scrolled through their Instagram feed and in the middle of all the vacation photos is one of a girl in little to no clothes. I not only quickly scroll past it in hopes that my mother doesn't notice it while she is hovering, but also because I don't care to look at the photos you post where you and your girlfriends are wearing skimpy clothes.

No, I do not want to see your half-naked posts on social media. I know you're going to get offended and simply say "Well, if you don't like what I post, then don't follow me." Well, it isn't that simple. Just because I unfollow you, it does not mean I can escape all the photos on social media featuring girls in raunchy clothes. The selfies you post with your boobs hanging out are not only distasteful, but it sends the wrong message to guys about you as well as fellow women.

Nobody is telling you what to wear or what not to wear; it is your body and ultimately your choice on how you choose to dress. However, you should be aware of and understand the repercussions that your wardrobe decisions will have.

You can wear what you want; it is your body. But don't expect your boyfriend to approve.

Don't expect his parents to approve of you.

Don't expect to have a lasting relationship when you dress like you aren't in one.

Don't be surprised if your boyfriend isn't happy with the fact that other guys are flirting with you when you are out in public because of the message your outfits send to guys.

Don't be surprised when your boyfriend breaks up with you because he is not okay with how revealing you dress.

Don't be surprised when guys hit on you inappropriately and make rude comments towards you when you and your girlfriends go out for lady's night.

Don't be surprised if an employer does not want to go through with hiring you because the company's HR department found some raunchy photos of you online. Do not be surprised by any of this because all of this will be the results of the pictures you post with you in revealing clothes.

Don't get me wrong, I am all for rockin' crop tops and shorts- it's a summer ensemble go to. However, it should be done in a tasteful way. There is a way to show some skin and rock what you got with class. Nobody wants to be flashed a peep of your underwear — or lack thereof in most cases — when you sit down or bend over. Nobody wants to get an eyeful of boob when you bend over. It makes people uncomfortable.

Flaunt what you got and be proud of your body and the skin you are in; be confident and work it, but don't be distasteful about it.

There is an appropriate place for your revealing clothes- social media is not one of those. Posting the photos now may seem like nothing harmless; after all, it is just another photo to add to your growing collection of online posts right?. In that moment it might seem like no big deal, but when employers find it, it becomes a big deal. When your family members see it and disapprove of what you do, it becomes a problem.

When people start to make negative comments about you and spread rumors about how you carry yourself, it becomes an issue.

I'm all for being body positive, or whatever the heck the latest "trend" is, but there is a time and appropriate place for your crop tops, or lack thereof. There is nothing wrong w a cute crop top or a pair of flattering shorts, but ladies please be aware of when you choose to wear these clothes as well as what you choose to wear in your latest Instagram photoshoot.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
