Pixie Cut

Lately I've been looking for new ways to spice up my look.  While in Harlem last week the idea of adding a  new wig to spruce up my style was born after passing what seemed like a trillion beauty supply shops.  So after passing shop number five I gave in and went diving for my new wig.  In the midst of my search for the perfect fit I came across a Beverly Johnson human hair pixie cut wig.  Now it wasn't exactly love at first sight but I did see potential.   Before going natural I proudly rocked a rihanna cut for quite a while and loved it to pieces.  So when I eyed this wig I thought it had that same kind of flair.  After playing with it I decided that this wig was a go.  Since then I'v worn it twice and gotta say that I like it.  The upsides is that because it is human hair I can use heat on it and wash it as well.  The fact that I haven't seen any shedding is also a plus.

I'm Lovin My: Polk Dot Shirt

A recent impromptu trip to Bolton's ended with me walking away with this lovely Polka Dot blouse.  While browsing the sale section I quickly spotted (get it spotted) this beauty and without hesitation, snatched it up and headed to the counter to make my purchase.  Since then Polka Dot and I have been inseparable. Partly because it goes with just about anything.   So far pops of color have been the name of the game.  Pairing this piece with bright tones has added an extra dose of personality to this already fun top.

There's a party going on round here

For whatever reason I typically don't get a chance to  party it up on New Years eve.  Well this year I put a stop to that  and decided to step out on the town and shake my tail feather into the wee hours of the morning.  I two stepped it in my stillettos with my girlies Sherrille, Amanda and Lakia by my side.  As a group we wanted to find  a low key yet still hip place to bring in the new year.  Are prayers were answered when we stumbled on Aloft Hotel's Lounge, W XYZ Bar.  The Aloft Hotel, which is nestled in  Harlem's backyard, is super chic and was the perfect destination for our crazy, sexy cool celebration.  Champagne flowed and party goers, with blow horns and party hats,  bumped and grinded way past the ball dropping ( yeah there was definitely some dry humping going on)   Since I hadn't been out for New Years in some time I wanted to dress to impress.  So for the night I went with my curve hugging French Connection dress and kept it light on the accessories.  My good ol' college roomie Sherrile,  also kept it fancy in her grey Laundry dress and pixie cut.  The night ended with my feet hurting like hell , being a witness to a few to many people hurling there guts out and my belly full from stuffing my face at IHOP.  Quite the combo I know.  Call me crazy if you want  but I'd do it all over again.  Happy New Year beauties!
