Real Housewives: Minneapolis Rendition

This entry is dedicated wholly and utterly to my housewife aka roomie Mina :)  What started out as a joke seemingly fit and has now stuck as a title and another role she fulfills in her life.  She does it all fellas! She cooks, cleans, schools, works, & even gets her daily GTL on (hence why I call her my housewife).  On top of that she's beautiful and SINGLE!  By no means am I trying to sell her by the way, but I WILL mention that Valentine's Day is coming up and applications are being accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis ;)

Furthermore, I decided one Saturday morning to play dress up with her and thus unfolded our mini photo-shoot.  Though we were limited to the confines of our apartment, we had a great time being as versatile with scenery as we could.  I incorporated different looks into her wardrobe to interpret the different roles she executes in real life.  I can't forget to mention that I had my fashion team, gurus Moni & Winnie helping out.  Seems to be a consistent occurence of complete and utter foolery and lunacy when we're together - in a humorous nature of course.  But having a group of amazing friends is the best fashion accessory you can have :)

Anyway, I hope you enjoy these photos!  I had a blast styling Miss Mina & can't wait to play dress up again!
