7 Must Haves for Fall 2014 (Women)

Now I am a very simple yet sophisticated person. 
I don't like anything over the top when it comes to Fashion, Hair, Shoes, etc. With me my style is my own!! However each year I do a list of 7 essentials for your overall style look for each season. Everything from the "IT" Handbag to the latest OPI Collection. 

Here are my Top 7* "Must HAVES" for Fall 2014. .

#1 Boots
Every Fall (and Winter) wardrobe should be equipped a a boot that can be versatile. When I use the word "versatile" I am referring to a piece that can take you from the office to volunteering in your community. 

The "Iman" collection available online via HSN has the perfect "Riding Boot".
It is leather, durable, and extremely comfortable. I have it featured here in "Chocolate" but it also comes in 2 other essential colors "Cognac" and "Black"

IMAN Platinum Rock the Runway Leather Riding Boot

#2 Loafer
Over the past 3 years the Loafer (Oxford) has made a gradual come back on the women's fashion scene. Normally we see the Men rocking all sorts of funky yet stylish patterned or solid loafers. Now most women's show designers have created equally stylish yet sophisticated loafers for us to wear. Here is a favorite of mine by Steve Madden "Zunni". It is available in the featured color "Leopard", "Black", and "Camo Multi"


#3 Nail Care
The Perfect Mani and Pedi are a must at anytime of the year, however in the Fall/Winter months it is important to show extra attention and take extra care of your hands and feet. As the climate changes your skin and nails become dry and brittle. Try one of the colors from the OPI: Nordic collection to keep that sophisticated flare going.

$9.50 Ulta

#4 Headbands 
The transition from Summer to Fall (including winter) can be one of the toughest times for hair. Especially if you are Black and Natural. However have no fear!! Headbands have been back on the scene and can turn any bad hair day into a hairtastic day!! Here is a site "Andrea's Beau" that feature several different styles and also provides variety pack.

Andrea's Beau $16.00

#5 Handbag
 I don't know a woman alive right now who doesn't love the style and quality of Michael Kor's products. His handbag's are what you will see on the arm of most women across the country. The "Casey" bag is a classic handbag that truly can be carried year round. At certain times of the year it is available in different solid colors and patterns. Here I feature it in "Black". It is sleek, the perfect size, and with enough room for you to carry all your essentials and then some.
Michael Kors $ 895.00

#6 Perfect Trench 
Although most Fall mornings and nights aren't too chilly you still need the right thing to keep you warm. The Trench Coat is a classic and can be found on any "Must Have" list of the Fall/Winter. From the classic khaki to a bright red, you can find it in the right color to suit your personality and style.

J Crew $158.00

#7 Skinny Jean
The perfect pair of jeans can take you from the office to your favorite teams football game. Either you know which style fits or you can build the perfect fit that suits you Levi's has you covered. Check out one of their most popular styles the "Mid Rise Skinny Jean". The color I have featured is  "Blue Dream". It also comes in other rinses and colors
Levi's $35.00 

Sistah's Chat Special Edition

On this past Saturday I hosted the "Special Edition" of my event "Sistah's Chat" at the downtown Public Library here in Chattanooga.

I must say this was one of the BEST chat's ever!! The Brother's on the Panel came to enlightened the audience on their views of what is currently happening across the country with racism and the plight of the black community. Also the Sistah's were not mute at all!! They were actively participating and providing their views.

Here are a few photos from the event!!

Thank you to each of my Panelist and Supporters!!

Be on the lookout right here for the date and time for the next "Sistah's Chat"!!
