Relaxed In Victoria Secret’s Pink / Sport

Hi Guys !

I’m so happy it’s my favorite time of the year ! Fall! To celebrate my new fall wardrobe , I decided to wear Pink and VS Sport out with my hubby this Saturday. Here’s pics of my outfits and info so you can purchase this outfit will be included.

Top-Pink Cold Shoulder Black / White Sweatshirt

Size-Small

Price– $52.99

Bottoms- Victoria Sport Black/White Leggings

Size -Small

Price – $69.95

Shoes – Black on Black Leather Toe Chuck Taylors Allstars

Size – 5

Price – $54.99

The material is nice and soft , and the leggings are pretty long. If you’re short like me , you might end up with them pretty high over your belly button. The nice thing about the leggings is the string that is in the inside front to make the waist tighter if need be.

I really like that the sweatshirt is not too thick , I would say it’s the thin type sweatshirt , so in nice fall weather a jacket is not needed.

I’m happy to be sharing my first fashion post with you all , and more will sure follow.

Until then ,

Happy Shopping !

Fierce Curly Feature

Image

Hello Dears,

This month’s Fierce Curly is a sista with so much style and confidence, that I had no choice but to feature her. She has the most beautiful chocolate rich skin, and doesn’t let her complexion stop her from wearing all the colors of the rainbow to express herself. (which she does well 🙂 Everyone get to know Sophia!

1.What made you decide to become natural?

I decided to return natural again After I promised my grandmother That I would while on her sick bed.This is actually my third time “going” natural.

2. What sets you apart from other naturals in regards to your style ?

My style is that more of Urban Boheiman Chic I can say. I love to mix and match stylish items from all eras and trends and Rock it. I can be laidback casual, or Boheiman Rock Star the next.

3. What are the three products that you can’t live without ?

Natural Love ButterCreme, Tangles and Beyond Conditioner, and Hairitage Hydration Soft Coconut Marshmallow….And Water if i can add that.:)

4. Would you promote natural hair to younger girls? Why or why not?

Yes. I have actually been teaching a few young teenagers that recently return natural with this last year. It allow them to see their hair in its natural state. It also allow them to embrace the hair and image that as given them at birth and to love that image no matter what. Teaching our young ladies Self-love is always an outstanding goal.

5. What do you love about being natural ?

The Versatility. I can be “straight” one week and then have my curly coils the next. I still can have color(dye) my hair, style, and be creative. Ive been blessed to meet some amazing women on this journey as well. Natural I Will Stay. Im Not Going Back This Time. 🙂

Again, I love your styles included your terrific twist outs . Maybe one day you can do a picture tutorial for us. Be Blessed my sista. YOU ARE ONE FIERCE CURLY!! 

                                                                                       Love,

Global Coutour 1

My name is Patricia and I am the Owner and Designer of Global Couture (http://globalcouture.net). I am originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan and currently reside in St. Louis, MO. During the day, I am a tenured college counselor and full time doctoral candidate completing my dissertation.

How did you get started?

I am natural and love it! I don’t have the exact date I went natural but I believe my last relaxer was 2009. I transitioned with Senegalese twist for nearly two years and finally mini chopped my relaxed ends May 21, 2011.  I decided to ‘go natural’ because I was tired of dealing with breakage and bad hair days from relaxers.

I decided to begin Global Couture 2 years ago, when I noticed I couldn’t find any accessories or natural hair apparel (mainly T shirts) I wanted to wear, that reflected my new consciousness.

Global Coutour 2

What is your current regimen? What three styles do you wear most often?

I co wash (conditioner only) my hair in the shower about 2-3 times a week. When it’s wet, I apply a leave in and gel. I’ll let it air dry and I’m out the door. I try to deep condition at least once a week using the bagging method overnight. The three styles I wear are my afro, my afro, and an afro puff! LOL. I am the wash n go queen and just let my hair do whatever it wants. I love updos’ but I can’t style or flat twist to save my life 🙂

Where do you find inspiration for your brand?

I would describe Global Couture as fresh, diverse, and colorful. Traveling is my passion. I add stamps in my passport every chance I get! I came up with the name Global Couture and logo because I want my brand to reflect fresh, diverse, eclectic beautyand styles; I appreciate from around the world.

 

Much of my inspiration for Global Couture (http://globalcouture.net) comes from the various natural hair communities (via blogs, natural hair meet-ups, and YouTube) which I so joyously joined nearly two years ago.  Global Couture is an expression of my love for travel, self-exploration, cultural expression, and creativity. Global Couture designs hair accessories, jewelry, & apparel for the bold, chic, and culturally curious. Global Couture is trying to spread the word about embracing your natural hair and its reflection of our history. “Loving your hair represents loving yourself.” Love your curls, if they are wavy, curly, kinky or coily.

Going back to my roots” during this natural hair journey has been truly self-affirming. Through this journey, I fell in love with the freedom, self-expression, and renewed confidence fostered by a simple ‘hairdo’ change. I found quickly it was more than a hair style change, it became a lifestyle change. I began to take more risks outside of the expected and mainstream forms in beauty, hairstyles, clothing, and accessories. I believe this ‘mini’ transformation paired with my travels through South American, Asia, Europe and the Caribbean has added to my appreciation for various forms of beauty, personal expression and culture expression.

What is your ultimate vision for Global Couture? Where do you see the brand in 5 years?

I currently sell T-shirts, hair accessories, bow ties, earrings, necklaces, totes, iphone cases, and curly girl mugs. I have over 200 additional concepts in the works for my T shirt apparel and accessory line. You can expect to see those in addition to the 93 products that are now available on my website.  I also have a line of wood, gold and silver accessories coming soon!

My vision for Global Couture is to encourage others to embrace the natural beauty in all of us from the inside-out.  I want to continue to grow my business and expand partnerships with local charities.

Are Some ladies Taking Natural Too Far? Part 2

A lot of times when people think of the natural hair community they image us with hip huggers, bright-colored lipsticks, and big ol circle earrings. Do you get offended by this, or do you embrace it because you yourself thinks that’s what its all about? Scrolling through a lot of our social media websites I do see women who are natural coloring their hair these bold colors, and rocking fashion in the many colors of the rainbows. I can’t help but to wonder were these women the same ones who fought for attention back in the day. Are they using natural hair to stand out amongst their creamy crack user girlfriends?

Don’t get me wrong it is entertaining to look at until one person take it too far, or many. A lot of these women are copying looks they see on the runway or in magazines, sorry that is not a look to wear out everyday. I thought being natural was wanting to make sure your hair got the proper nourishment and remained fly without a perm, for me that is.

Also, what gets to be a bother is when natural hair communities makes up all these rules on their own telling you what a natural is supposed to do, and not do. Hello? Who made you Chief Hair No Lye? This is a major turn off and DO give the natural hair community a bad reputation. Stop listening and following everyone that another person like just because the majority loves them. My advice is to find you a natural hair beauty that you can relate to, that you feel YOU can learn the most from. Stop running on Instagram counting followers to pick your hair crush, some of those women need to go back and get their hair together.

I hope I didn’t make anyone upset, and if I did I’m sorry. My blog is o keeping it real, and giving honest reviews. This has been a hair check for most of you, are you being naturally yourself?

Making A Sad Face Right Now Shoedazzle

OMG! After receiving a $15.00 credit in my Shoedazzle account , and finding me the perfect pair of booties, guess what!!?? Shoedazzle sent me the wrong size! Before placing orders I always view the reviews made by other buyers so I can know if the shoe runs true to size or not. All the reviews said that it ran true to size, and it was a perfect bootie for your skinnies. Now you all know, I love my skinnies. Without hesitation I ordered mine in a size 7. Here they go right here.

Now these are sexy!  Imagine my face when I pulled them out the box, after stalking FedEx like crazy. I told hubby “Bae, don’t these look a tad bit small?’ He was like try them on. You remember how Cinderella’s step sisters looked trying to force their big ol feet into her glass slipper? That was me. I even ran and got a stocking to see if that would help. No. Then on top of that I see final sale on my order confirmation, no way! It did not say that when I placed my order. The first time I called Shoedazzle I told them I wanted a bigger size, well they said no, final sale. Then I go back in the living room and ask hubby about places that stretch shoes. Next thing I did was check the whole shoe, I don’t know why , but something told me to. 6.5!! They sent me the wrong size! My shoe sticker on the bottom says 7 , the box says 7 the confirmation paper and my order history says 7, but the shoe itself is a freakin 6.5!! Here I am writing you guys in real-time, as I’m sitting in my office on hold to demand my size seven be sent, someone in their warehouse done made me wanna cry. I had my whole outfit and hairstyle pictures for these boots to wear out this Saturday, and I bet now that won’t happen. SMH! It already took these shoes too long to arrive in my book. The order was placed on November 24, and today is December 4th.  I’m not too pleased at all on this matter.

Love,
