Web Window Shopping: Natural Girls United

Thanksgiving is the green light for the Christmas/holiday shopping season to begin. As most people make their list and check it twice in hopes of finding that great holiday gift for the female in their life I would like to offer some friendly advice on a perfect gift that celebrates that HUE female in your life. One that truly gets to the heart of being a black girl/ woman. Let me introduce you to Natural Hair United. It is doll collection like none other.

I came across Natural Girls United last year and I have been hitting to everyone that I know that if they wanted to get me a gift that I will love and display with pride all year long then they need to look no further than these amazing creations. I am a firm supporter of young girls (and boys) have toys that represent them. I am blessed that my Mom & Dad made it a point to provide me with dolls that looked like me. At it is for this reason I am madly in love with the dolls that Natural Girls United create. It is more than just a doll in my eyes. It is a way for young girls to see and understand that beauty comes in all shades, sizes and hair textures. These dolls make me want to cry and smile all at the same time because they offer a true celebration of black beauty.

Web Window Shopping: The #BUYBLACK365 Beginners Guide: Retail Edition

 

screen-shot-2016-10-19-at-1-37-17-pm

Believe it or not the holidays are just around the corner. During the holiday season many people flock to large major retailers in the middle of the night to get the deal of the century from stores that move people in and out like cattle with little to no service. Over the last few years I have heard people speak of wanting to support black business owners but have not idea of where to start (especially if you don’t live in a large city). The purpose of Web Window Shopping Wednesday is to point you in the direction of black owned business and brands as well as companies that embrace diverse images of style and beauty.

Today’s feature has something wonderful to offer all you beautiful hues that want to #buyblack for the holiday season and beyond. Today Soul Reflectionz will be giving all the subscribers of their website a free copy of  BEGINNERS GUIDE: RETAIL EDITION. Not a subscriber? No worries.

Web Window Shopping: Pervacious Boutique

 

I fell in love with the “Speedway” dress from Pervacious Boutique after seeing it in my Instagram timeline a few weeks back. Offered in two colors (red and lime). The lime dress grabbed my attention from first sight.

The online boutique caters to the petite and curvy fashionistas of the world and offers a diverse array of truly sexy clothes, shoes swimwear, and accessories.

What I truly love about the dress is that it is classy and sassy at the same time. The vibrant color combined with the bold white stripe down the center along with the black side paneling perfectly showcases the female form in such a way that a style maven can feel fashion forward, flirtatious, and  confidently modest all at the same time.

 

Web Window Shopping : Live in Fashion

Welcome to Web Window shopping Wednesday ~say that five times fast :0)

Web Window shopping is all about finding those fashion treasures online. I came across the feature of the day because they liked an picture I posted on my instagram page. ( yup, I check out the pages of those who like my images). I instantly gravitated to the gorgeous Jaguar post earrings on the Live in Fashion website because they make a fashion forward statement while remaining classy. They can easily be matched with a pair of jeans and classic white shirt to add a little flare to traditional weekend look or you can use them to adorn your little black dress when you are out on the town to unleash your inner sexy style.

With a new Spring collection on the way I am sure that you can find something to add to your wardrobe….but I must warn you I will fight you for that clear clutch bag on shown on their instagram page….True story.

With love from me to hue.

Web Window Shopping- Rachel Roy

 

I don’t know about you but I’m a girl on the go! Fitness, family, friends, and fashion…sometimes is hard to get your breath moving at the speed of light from one thing to the next. That’s why this edition of Web Window Shopping it all about helping that girl on the go transition from daytime working wardrobe to nighttime stunner.

I stumbled across the beauties below in a mad dash one morning a few weeks ago while running errands. I immediately posted the link to the shoes on my Facebook for my friends viewing pleasure and joked that if wanted to get me a birthday gift I would make it easy for them. The MIYANG SPIKE PUMP is truly a stunner.

Since my day job is in a creative field I could probably get away with the in the red, but if you are in a more conservative environment you could easily slip in the navy, grey, or pink during the Summer and the added benefit that takes these heels from day to night are the Rock Star spikes. All you have to do is ditch your boring suit and throw on your favorite little party dress and boom…instant evening allure!

Web Window Shopping: lovebychari

Who doesn’t like window-shopping?Isn’t there something exciting about finding that perfect item as you are just strolling through life? Well that is the purpose of a new series of post for my blog….but with a unique twist. Have you ever surfed in styled? You know…shopping online of course! Well I like to call it web window shopping and for my first installment I wanted to highlight a new little find that I stumbled across while on a social media site….it doesn’t get more web window shopping than that!

As a style blogger you get to see a lot of websites and budding designers. The moment that I clicked on to Love by Chari’s site I had that window-shopping moment of bliss… you know the one where you start mentally going through your closet in your mind thinking you know that you own something that goes with the delightful item you just viewed and even if you don’t you are going to buy the item anyway because…well it’s that stylish.

So what stopped me during my web shopping experience?

These leopard post earrings of course.

Why you ask? Well, because they would go wonderful with my leopard heels and the size gives them just enough “pop” without being overpowering.I immediately added Love by Chari to my list of web window-shopping items.

After communicating online I learned how unique my web window-shopping experience had been. Charity who is the designer of several delightful gems is working on a degree in the healthcare industry, and that these creations are sparked by her desire to find the perfect pair of earrings that offered more flair than the flower shaped and pearl stud earrings that she came across that were nice, but not really her cup of tea. Unable to find what she was looking for she created her own line that includes an array of items that she features in her online boutique. And what I love even more about this line is that it offers fashionistas the chance to be a designer’s original with custom made earrings. If that isn’t fashion forward then I don’t know what it.
