Weekday Capsules are Back for the Summer


So I’ve been auditing my closet again. Now that the seasons have changed and my company is in full swing, it’s time to try some new things with my wardrobe. After evaluating my closet with the Kon Marie method, I narrowed down the items that I wear out the house to 80 (shoes not included)….

OOTD: Spring in the Winter


As promised, I’m posting my OOTDs again on my personal blog. I apologize for the gap in these fashion posts. I’ve been busy working on my company plans and website but I don’t want to let my recording of my thrifted fashion goals go astray. My top was one of the items I snagged when…

June 22nd OOTD: It’s Monday Again


Today was a pretty slow day work wise. I was glad because I stayed up until 3am finishing my twists. I hope these last for awhile. It’s going to be nice not having to do my hair everyday. Today I decided to be comfortable and feminine. I went with this gathered black top from New…

3.24.15 Today’s Outfit


So my work day was pretty rough. My computer had a bunch of issues going on and slowed down/stopped progress. I just hope it’s back on track tomorrow. I don’t want a repeat of frustration with PC computers. I almost wish that I could have brought my iMAC to work with me at one point,…

Fasting and Furniture


Whenever a new year starts, Brandon (the hubster) and I tend to participate in a spiritual activity to help us reboot and re-focus. This year, it’s the 21 day Daniel fast. Aside from avoiding certain foods, we are writing in journals daily, praying and getting in some personal worship time with God. This is day…

Summer Combo #1


As promised, I’m now starting to use my summer capsule wardrobe everyday until the end of August. This is the first combination that I came up with. To add some flare, I wore this scarf, though I think I should have added a belt to the pants. Overall, I’m pretty happy with it. I think…

Summer Capsule Wardrobe


Ok, as promised, I have photographed and sorted out 50 or fewer items to wear this summer. The theme behind my selections was bright feminine colors, texture and patterns. The goal is to stray away from too many dark or neutral colors. I still need a pair of wedges and nice black dress shoes, but…

Capsule Wardrobe Plans


In order to improve my fashion sense, I’ve decided to get rid of all of the items in my wardrobe that make me look under 21 (although sometimes, this can’t be helped, I’ve got a real baby face). I tossed out so many things, some that I really love, but in the long run they…

5 Months of Hair Progress


Check out my video to see the progress I’m making in my goal to grow my hair to armpit length. I’ve been natural since 2007 but this is my first purposeful attempt to grow it to a certain length. So far, so good for five months. What do you think? — Elle
