A Natural Hair Inspired Halloween

Happy Halloween, Everyone!!! The costumes are out, the vibe is spooky, and fall has finally arrived in Virginia! With all the costume ideas out there this year, I decided to not only have some fun at work, but to work a costume around a fabulous protective style: Paying homage to the iconic Janelle Monae, a little extra “umph” to the classic pomp transformed this work look into a perfectly fashionable (and work-appropriate) Halloween statement. How are you rocking your natural hair this Halloween?     Advertisements

I read in the comments section of her Instagram that she actually purchased this material from Dubai and then had her seamstress sew the dress for her. So the material is actually from Dubai, who would’ve thunk?!? It looks so African but I guess it’s just the style that it was sewn into. #Beautiful ❤  She looks like royalty.

Career OOTD #1: Black & White

Ever walk through the mall, enter a store you like, go to the “career” section, only to be met with work clothes that are inappropriate for the office or (even worse) clothes devoid of all personality?  Since my work takes up a good portion of my life, I’m rarely in casual clothes.  But I do get tired of the typical, boring professional uniform attire, especially in the legal field.  It always feels a little like I left a piece of my soul behind.
