Teairra Mari, and a host of other celebs, helped Soulja Boy celebrate his 20th birthday down in Atlanta. She wore a yellow peplum strapless dress with black and white Jeffrey Campbell booties.

I could not find a similar look for the wedges, but I did find this yellow tube dress for a great price!

Jeffrey Campbell Tribal Tick Studded Wedge Heel $170

French Connection Wizard Cotton Strapless Dress $25 (0riginal price $110)

My friend and former classmate Nigeria asked me to do a few posts on natural hair care, I was supposed to do this post a little ago, but I am now getting to it (sorry). Although my hair is not natural (I considered going through the transition) I did my research and compiled a list of basics and essentials for women with natural (chemical free) hair styles.


  • Sulfate free shampoo
  • Silicone free instant and deep conditioner
  • Daily moisturizer or grease with no mineral oil or petrolatum
  • Daily leave in conditioner
  • Good natural oils
  • Silicone based heat protectants.

Reading the ingredients listed for products at the local beauty supply store or drugstore and watching product reviews from other women will help determine which products have helpful ingredients as opposed to harmful.


  • Plastic wide tooth comb
  • Denman brush or boar bristle brush (some would advise no brushes of any kind)
  • Hair clips that are hair stress free
  • Metal free elastic bands
  • Satin or silk scarf, pillow cover, or bonnet


Here are some great sites for natural hair
  1. Nappturality
  2. Curly Nikki
  3. Motown Girl
  4. Miss Jessie’s
  5. Treasured Locks

Yes you read correctly, Justin Timberlake’s William Rast clothing line will be sold in Target. This December we will be able to snag great denim, outer wear and sportswear from this affordable, limited-edition collection. 

According to PopCrunch

“The winter collection of men and women’s apparel will feature the premium denim, outerwear, and sportswear that has become the William Rast signature. William Rast for Target debuts at most Target stores nationwide and online at the retailer’s website this Dec. 19 and will fill the racks through Jan. 22, 2011.”

Target is definitely making major moves! This is probably going to be one of the biggest collaborations since Justin Timberlake has such a huge fan base. I’m excited for this and its just in time for Christmas so this could definitely be added to the list.

I did a post on these shoes about two weeks ago (click here). They retail for about $200. I found a similar pair for only $20.

This pair is original $30 but are on sale for $20 at AMI Clubwear. Click here to purchase

This week the ladies were out and looking fly. From red carpet to street chic all of these ladies look incredible.

What I love:

  1. Kimora’s laid back look. The denim shorts with the blazer and scarf is a perfect combo for relaxed chic

  2. Amber Riley’s nued pumps and neutral dress. She looks radiant!

  3. Melanie Fiona’s knit dress. This is effortless chic! I love the pairing with the grey booties.

  4. Malaak Compton-Rock’s gold dress. She looks elegant and the colorful clutch is the perfect accessory.

  5. Letoya Luckett’s red pumps. The pumps add a little spice to the outfit.
