cfblog

Blessings from theOhiogirl, got me feelin’ major like Biggie. A crop tank & a tee. ^_^

These HalfBrooklyn tees are super dope and I love them already! They are good quality, efficiently priced shirts. I love the additional softness of the crop tank.

Free Spiiirit is gonna customize the t-shirt so be on the lookout for that! Oh, btw! Speaking of customization…do you guys have any ideas for how you want to see this shirt customized??? We’re thinking a little fringe & distress, hippie-grunge style, but we are open to suggestions! What do you guys think?

(If you’d like to purchase a “Crooklyn’s Finest” tee direct all inquiries to HalfBrooklyn@gmail.com)

Trendspotting: Leather

Hola my dears!

Today is a beautiful day and its actually starting to get cold in the South (whadya know?) And I’m  actually not a big fan of the cold but its still bearable out there, just cold enough that I can pull out a few cute cold-weather items. 🙂

This leads me to a spotlight on the perfect cold-weather trend for fall…LEATHER. Leather is a big trend for fall. I’m seeing it on celebs, runways, and everyday street fashionistas, and as it gets colder, this is definitely a trend to embrace. Leather is mostly worn in black, but there has been a rise of colored leather as well, as of late. Check out a couple of pictures I accrued below of the trend being put to best use…

The leather trend comes in various colors, shapes and styles so there is something leather out there that can flatter anyone. Gon’ get you some!!

Janelle Monae Inspired Hair

Hello my lovelies, Jaz here! I was watching natural hair videos, as I sometimes do in my limited free time, and I stumbled across an interesting video from one of the naturals I am subscribed to. The video was by LoveIslandBeauty and its a vid for Janelle Monae Inspired Hair. The style looked absolutely stunning on miss Jo Michelle and I was dying to try it! However I had in my twist and wasnt quite ready to take them out yet, sooooo I used my Mommie as a guinea pig and tried the style out on her! I think it came out quite well and I want you guys to be the judge. Check out the video by LoveIslandBeauty and a few pics of the style on my mom below.

 

 

 

This style was done on stretched out natural hair. I can’t wait to try this on myself. What do you guys think??

Share your opinions. Until Next Time!

Hair of the Week: Mini Twists

Image

Greeting lovelies! A more appropriate name for this post might be Hair of the Weeks. Sunday I spent hours upon hours styling my hair into mini twists. The style, though time consuming, is a great protective style for natural hair and it is meant to last a long time. Perfection for my busy schedule! So its been a couple days already, but I plan on keeping this style for another 2-3 weeks. I only used Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In, the basic two strand twisting method, and LOTS of patience to achieve this style. Its my first time doing the twists this small and I like them thus far. I like the way they coil up at the ends. The shrinkage with this hairstyle is crazy! My twist are literally more than twice the length they appear when I stretch one. I may stretch the twists out over time using braids or ponytails and see how they look that way. But I’m not too, too obsessive over length appearance.Anyways, enough of me being a Chatty Cathy! Here are a couple more pics where you can see the twists a little more clearly.

What do you guys think about this hairstyle? Love it? Hate it? Let me know!

Until Next Time!

Your opinions definitely matter! So, I ask that you all take a moment to answer the poll below in relation to the changes to theFashionerrd.
