Natural Hair | Three Reasons Going Natural is One of the Dopest Decisions I’ve Ever Made


When I began my natural hair journey in 2011, I had the slightest idea of how that decision would change my life.  I knew that after a bad keratin treatment, my hair would no longer curl and I needed that to change.  In the process of my hair changing, I changed.  Nearly five years after my big chop, I’ve learned so much about myself.


Personal Style | African Prints with DearCurves


I love African prints.  I own a few vintage pieces, but DearCurves has produced something unique and different for those who love bold prints.  Not only does DearCurves offer a variety of African prints and clothing, but they have created an African print bodysuit.  Yes, the top I'm wearing is actually a comfortable, bodysuit.  I think the concept of them adding such a great print to a stretchy, comfortable material is pure genius.  I received so many compliments the day I wore this bodysuit that I was a bit taken aback and I know it will be in much rotation.  Plus, the great thing is that it's perfect for any season.


Personal Style | Comfy Thanksgiving Style with NY Collection


Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I can already taste the stuffing!  Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because I love spending time with family and of course, the good food.  When it comes to Thanksgiving style, I like to keep it comfortable and cute.  Leggings and a poncho are classic pieces that can easily be styled for Turkey Day.  Plus, your stomach can be hidden if you eat a little too much.  I love this chevron poncho from NY Collection.  The print is fun and since it's black and white, it can be styled different ways.  Plus, with ponchos, you can easily add a scarf for extra warmth and chicness.


Fashion | Three Ways Shoe Repair Stores Changed My Life


Shoes are an important part of my life.  I love a great shoe and as a woman with wide feet, great shoes are not the easiest thing to find.  When I do find them, I tend to wear them until they are falling apart.  What I never knew though is that there are ways to possibly put life back into shoes and that shoes that you purchase that don't fit quite right, may be able to be fit just for you.  I found all of this out when I started visiting the shoe repair store.


Personal Style | Fab Werkwear Series: The Cape Blazer


Thank you for the love on last month's fab werkwear post!  I love doing this series because boring work wear should be a thing of the past.  This week, we're definitely adding some boldness to the mix.  I love the cape blazer trend and this blazer packs a definite punch of uniqueness to any wardrobe.  For some, this blazer may be too much, but depending on your workplace, it could be appropriate for Casual Friday and the boardroom.  I decided to share how I would rock it on Casual Fridays or to an after work function.
