ELOQUII SHOES ARE AMAZING & NOW I CAN WEAR THEM!!!

If you know me...you know that I am a huge fan of Eloquii.

I love there fashion and they usually made amazing shoes unfortunately for so long I was not able to wear them because unfortunately I wear a size 13W.  It is so hard to find shoes to begin with so to find shoes that are fashion forward is almost non existent.  My choices have been limited to Torrid, Avenue and some times I can get these pups into Nordstrom Rack.  Could you image only having THREE choices of where to buy shoes.  Its down right sad. Because of this shoes have been my least favorite part of fashion.
Thanks to Eloquii my shoe game as increase by 1.....


BLACK PANTHER: WHY I LOVE THIS MOVIE AND WHAT TO WEAR???


The highly anticipated Marvel Studios’ Black Panther comes to theaters everywhere on 2/16/18 (some cities have fan showing 2/15) and I’m SUPER excited about this.   This movie has already blown out in pre-sales, setting records and no one has seen it yet!!!  Fandingo announced that  this movie has the highest pre-sale tickets of any Marvel movie.  The previous holder was Captain America: Civil War.  (sidebar: wasn't this the same movie that introduced Black Panther?  Humm...no wonder it did so good...)

Here’s a brief synopsis of the film:
"Marvel Studios’ Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life."

Rather its the anticipation of another Mavel Movie or the start studded cast, this movie has everything I need and wanted in a Marvel Comic movie but it also holds sentimental value from my childhood.  





I remember reading the Black Panther fir the first time as a kid by accident.  I was at the library (remember that place) looking for comics to read.  (Another side note:  my mom would not buy comics/books because she said "that what the library's for". I think I single handily kept my local branch open because I spent a LOT of time there).   
When I found it I thought its a comic about the Black Panther Party!!! It wasn't but I also saw it was really really good. I cant remember the issue exactly, but 
I remember wanting to read more.  Unfortunately, this was a library and they only had one issue, which in comic book land is like having one chapter to a book.  I also remember being amazed that black pPanther wasn't a white man wearing a panther suit but a black man. That meant a lot to me because outside of Storm I hadn't seen another black super hero.  

Later in life, thanks to the internet, I got a chance to learn the back story and enjoy the story of T'Challa.  Plus it was great to learn that he was the boyfriend/husband/ex-husband of Storm.  I totally expect to see this in the next Panther Movie.  hint hint

So with tickets purchases and fan parties to attend the next question is....
WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR!!!

Here are a few outfit ideas for your Black Panther (Movie) Party
