Simple yet Chic

I decided to come up with some simple quick looks for the workplace or any type of event in which someone may need an idea to spruce up their natural hair look. I have natural curly hair type 3c...I love wearing my hair down alot but sometimes after a few hours my curls begin to change and they become puffier and shorter so I wanted to come up with a few updo's and makeup looks that you may tickle your fancy...

First Look: Red/Wine Lips & Silver Eye
Low Bun with Hair Loose on top w/Blk Flower

Second Look: Silver/Purple Smokey Eye & Nude Lips
Hair: High Bun with Front Left Out Swept into a Poof

Third Look: Neutral Grey Eye & Muave Wine Tinted Lips
Hair: 2 Strand Twist Pulled to the Side w/the remainder hair swept
into a side bun.

Please keep in mind this is 2 day hair with only conditioner used & these are
quick looks I just threw together
so they are not really polished and ready to wear out lol...
just to give you an idea or inspiration...


Prep In Ya Step

In reference to one of my fashion posts for, I blogged about the latest trend in mens' fashion that I absolutely adore. The "Ivy League" look. A look in which is taken from the early fashion that was seen at Ivy League schools. Men would wear rugby colors, fitted trousers, penny loafers, and pocket squares for example. Wow, the image of Carlton Banks from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air just popped into my head when I was describing the attire. How funny, who would of thought his fashion sense would finally be accepted and embraced now. How I love fashion! Either way I appreciate where Hip Hop fashion seems to be going and this is one trend I hope never fades. Men wearing polished, more refined and paying attention to detail is the best. Here I styled my wonderful model (bf) in a Prep inspired ensemble....

This was a very simple look to throw together, he is known for dressing up to par daily so
working with the clothes in his closet was an easy process.

Hat: Red/Orange Accent Plaid Jacket: Thrifted Tweed Top: Burnt Orange
Pants: Thifted Striped with Navy Blue Belt: Thrifted Shoes: Suede Loafers
Sidenote: His pants are actually a little baggier than
I would have used but I tried to make them work ;)
