2. Always wear a good pair of shoes.
3. Invest in a good coat.
4. There is no excuse for not wearing some type of mascara.....It offends the Fashionista. She also thinks everyone should wear blush (another time another post).
5. Don't plan on having the piece for a long time. There are some things that I take really good care of, I send them to the cleaners knowing that it is an investment piece that I can love forever.
This dress is quite a find, the naturalista told me so. This Mixed Floral Belted Tunic is super cute $22.80 . I would remove the shiny black patent leather belt and replace with this more chic looking link-center belt in peanut butter/ brown $5.80.
I know that most of you like to match browns with browns and black with black but I do not like to follow all of the matchy-matchy rules. These shoes are HOT and set off this outfit. $26.80
Work Casual- This outfit is appropriate for work but still adds tons of personal touches. I love the round neck cardigan because it is always classic and feminine. $17.80
The belt brings the outfit together. $8.80
Even if you were to wear this outfit one time it would be worth the style. Bright colors set an outfit. It is also calmed when paired with a color like black. This yellow linen skirt is a steal. $15.80
These shoes are chic-n-funky. Closed toe to remain strictly buisness but faux crocodile print on the sides. Love Them! $28.80
Stay tuned for more virtual shopping trips! Let me know if there is a specific stores you wouild like us to virtual shop.

She is FREEEE! I have officially become unlocked. This means that I took my locs out. Here are the top 6 questions I have received since the project completion.
6. Q. Is your hair light weight now?
A. It is very light weight! I wanted it to be not so heavy for the summer.
5. Q. Do you miss them?
A. Sometimes I do miss them. I have a certain nostalgia about just getting up and running out of the door. I do not regret it at all. I will most likely loc again, but I have learned so much since I started them in 2003 that there is a different approach I want to do next. I may even try sista' locs.
4. Q. Why did you do it?
A. I got tired of having all of that hair. When I first got locs, there was a specific length that I wanted my hair to be. I think my hair doubled that length. When I could not even roll over in bed without rolling on a loc, I knew it was to long! I also have an issue with being put in categories (good and bad) based on appearance. Although being natural is a part of me, I dont like putting to much into one thing! I want to focus on the entire package:)
3. Q. Are you going to relax it now?
A. This question always gets a full eye roll! Not that I HATE relaxers, but why does that have to be the first thing I do after I take my LOCS out? As if that is the only option locs or perm.... I even got some crazy looks when I said "I am gonna let my hair rest for a while, then we will learn each other again". So the answer is no there will not be relaxer.
2. Q. Now what are you gonna do?
A. I think I answered that in #3. I have tons of tricks up my sleeve for natural hair. Some styles like, double strand curly twists, bantu set, braid out, twist out, curly fro, and many more!!!!
1. Q. You can do that?
A. YES it is possible to take locs out. I used water and a rat tail comb. I did take a month so if you aren't patient, cutting them off is probably for you. I loved when my hair was short but I did not want to go through the in between stage. This length is perfect for me. It still might be a little to long!!!
