Ok so last week I told you all about me coloring and few hair pieces to switch up my look for fall. I dyed black peruvian human hair with Clairol Professional Classic Collection dye in 6N which is dark neutral blonde. Many people felt swindled because they thought I was going totally blonde. Honestly I had no idea that the dark neutral blonde on dark brown hair would make the hair sandy brown. Although I knew I wasn’t bleaching my hair I didn’t know what to expect. I also told you that I would be making my own hair extensions! If you don’t remember, click here. Well why the dyeing process was so easy and effortless the clip-ins were not! The gurus on YouTube make it seem like it was totally simple, but apparently I did not have the proper hair weaving needle :(, but because I’m resourceful and savvy, I made it work!

So check out how I styled my new hair and new look!

Perfect sporty chic outfit!

I went sporty chic with my Phillip Lim for Target BOOM Sweatshirt and my leather leggings from H&M. I carried new favorite bag from the Phillip Lim for Target collection and brought the look together with a pair of shoes that I’ve had for the last three or four years from Payless, yes don’t sleep on Payless and their shoes last.

I’m amazed at how great the color looks first because I did it myself, and second because it matches exactly to  my natural hair color. As I’ve stated in previous hair posts, my hair currently has three textures, most of my hair is relaxed, a portion of my hair is texlaxed, and then there is my new growth. My hair also has three different colors and for the Clairol Professional Classic Collection to be so versatile that it matched all three of my hair shades I’m simply blown away.

This picture captures the color so beautifully!

Remember the collection offers 16 different shades and because it is easy to use I’m sure you won’t have a problem finding the right color to fit your style needs. The process of coloring took about 10 minutes for the mixture and application and 45-minutes to process without heat. I love my new look and it’s just in time for my birthday too! How exciting is that!

I remember the last time I went to Kohl’s I said I’m not coming back for a while because they take all of my money. I would spend a certain amount and get Kohl’s Cash and would have a week to spend it so I would be back in Kohl’s earning more and spending more. It was definitely a vicious cycle and that was before I had any self control lol. Now I think I have a reason to go back besides the Daisy Fuentes Collection, Elle Collection, and Jennifer Lopez Collection, Kohl’s now has a collection with one of my favorite designers, Catherine Malandrino. I always love to see her show during Fashion Week because it is definitely refreshing and . I always said in my next life when I’m a millionaire I will probably have a closet full of her pieces, well now I can make that dream come true even if I’m far from being a millionaire.

Catherine Malandrino recently released a collection with one of my favorite retailers Kohl’s and the collection is definitely worth the drive to Rego Center Mall (the place with the nearest Kohl’s). Take a look at the collection

They are currently having a sale with everything 25% off so you may want to head to your nearest Kohl’s or shop online by clicking here

For this installment of “Style Files” I’m featuring three very distinct looks from three very fashionable women. I would wear each of these looks because they all suit some part of my style and personality. Check out Tia Mowry, Tamar Braxton, and Eve!

Ok for Tia’s look I would definitely wear this to work or church. It is sophisticated and modern. The printed skirt paired with the cream blouse and blue cardi is perfect for this type of fall weather, and you can still wear sandals, but I’d probably opt for a pair of open-toe booties.

Eve’s dress at the BET Hip Hop Awards was stunning. You can never go wrong with black and the sequin and intricate hemline is what makes this dress standout. Her soft curls red lip and wine colored shoes are the perfect compliment. My birthday is Wednesday and this is a look I’d wear to my birthday gathering if I was having one lol.

Last but not least we have Tamar Braxton in a black leather sweatsuit paired with red Christian Louboutin heels. Of course the red shoes are the show stoppers and this look is great for a girl’s night out.

Although they are three distinct looks, which look fits your personality and style best?

So on September 15, 2013 at 4:21am I magically awoke from my deep sleep and checked twitter to see if they released the Phillip Lim for Target collection online and to my surprise they did. I stumbled out of my bed to get my computer to shop my little heart out. I did not want to deal with the lines and the crowds so I thought online shopping was my best option. I knew which piece I wanted definitely (The Boom Sweatshirt), but I was still conflicted on what else to purchase. Many of the New York bloggers that I follow happened to shop the pre collection during fashion week and started wearing their pieces already, and although they looked great in everything (Shout out to Glam Nikki) I wasn’t sure if the pieces I thought I wanted were for me. Plus I’m trying to be a “smarter shopper.” Many of the pieces that I wanted I knew that I wouldn’t get that many wears out of them because of the distinct patterns. I needed to get the pieces that were the most functional for my wardrobe and the pieces that I absolutely loved, not just liked. I also set a specific budget that I did not want to break.

So I ended up choosing four things. After weeks of waiting for my purchases to arrive they finally came last week! I was so excited. Although online shopping is less of a hassle, the waiting time sucks.

Later that day I went to Target with my mother and there were tons of pieces left and in my size. They were all over the place but I was able to see if I missed anything online and I didn’t. I got everything that I wanted and needed, with the exception of one handbag. I was looking for a presentation clicker in electronics and saw one of the workers stashing bags behind the register to purchase later. If she had the bag that I wanted you know I would have said something, but she didn’t so I let her slide lol.

I’m just happy that I can finally wear the things that I purchased and carry the oh so fabulous bags! Ok I know I’m about 2 weeks late, but hey it’s better late than never.
