Happy First Day of Fall

In DC, we are lucky enough to get to enjoy all four seasons. And honestly, Autumn is my absolute favorite out of them all. This may seem strange to some because I’m a Spring baby, born in June. Therefore, my friends automatically think that Spring would be my favorite season, but it’s not. I love fall.

I think it’s actually the fall fashion that won me over years ago. When I was working in the fashion industry, managing my Aunt’s Takoma Park boutique and later managing a Georgetown boutique, I was always super excited about the fall fashion as it entered the showrooms.

These days while providing styling services part-time for several DC area boutiques and DC area professionals and working full time in an office environment, I’ve already started suggesting items for this season. Stay tuned for my Autumn Look-Book so you can see some of my must haves and my favorites!

Happy First Day of Fall Y’all

Wisdom Wednesday

Life is full of ups and downs, highs and lows. We all know the saying “What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”. But when we are actually going through tough times, it doesn’t seem like its making you stronger. It actually feels like its tearing you apart until God gives you the time it takes to pull through. Through God’s love and with the strength that God gives us, we become stronger and better through the challenges of life. Believe me, as I go through these tough times, I know that IT GETS BETTER.

I know it will for you too.

Flashback Friday: Kinky Straight & Loving It!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!! It’s Flashback Friday!

Now that I’m back in Senegalese Twists again, I’m missing my Italian Yaky hair extensions that blended so well with my natural hair. Through the years, I have had every hairstyle under the sun, including dredlocks for almost 8 years. So I am no stranger to hair extensions, super short hair, afros, twist-outs, etc. This year back in March or April, I did my 3rd BIG CHOP.  But during the cold season, I’m all about the protective styles. I’ve always liked hair extensions like Italian Yaky or Kinky Straight better than any Silky Straight hair extensions. This type of hair matches my hair texture so perfectly. I loved this look and will more than likely do it again. But for now I’m going to enjoy my Senegalese Twists. 

Have an AWESOME weekend.

A Hat, Hunters Boots & Vintage Gucci

Look of the Day.
As the Autumn season seem to be coming and going in the DC area; one day its in the 50s and next day in the 70s, I have been looking for a great Fall Hat for a while and I found this beauty at Marshalls for only $19! You know how I love a great deal! My Black Tall Hunter Boots will probably always be in my Capsule Wardrobe. My Vintage Gucci Bag was a gift from my baby sister who knows I prefer Designer Vintage Bags. Paige Premium have become one of my favorite jeans brands (along with True Religion & J Brand), I lucked up on these at a local thrift store. 
{Thrift Store Tip: Know your favorite jeans brands and look for them FIRST when thrift store shopping.}

Frugal Friday’s Fab Finds

TGIF. Happy Friday Y’all. Today’s Frugal Friday Fab Find are these marble colored Dr. Marten Pascal Patent Leather Boots I found yesterday at Ross for just $35. They were the only ones in the store and in my size (6.5) so in my mind they were totally meant for me. They are a bit weird/different but so am I & I like (LOVE) that. And I KNOW I got a great deal because they are selling at Lord & Taylor for $125 and at Karmaloop for $112!

So if you like these as much as I do, check out your nearest Ross Store to find them in your size. 

Happy Frugal Friday and have an awesome weekend!
