Adventures in Window Shopping

Since I told you all briefly about doing some window and actual shopping, I decided to talk about one of my top 5 favorite stores:  Old Navy.  I met up with a couple friends this time around and we decided to see what was new.  Old Navy is getting everyone prepared for spring with rich, bright colors, bold prints, and what seems to be a season filled with cute dresses.  If you don't find anything to wear there, then you're just hard to please (just kidding :), unless you REALLY are hard to please.)  I suggest hitting up the clearance racks first to take advantage of great pieces to add to your wardrobe.  I promise you won't be disappointed.  My first model is wearing pieces from the clearance rack, with the exception of the yellow tank.

Even though these were considered winter pieces, they could easily be carried over into spring.  I know you may be thinking this outfit has a lot going on.  But, I like it and I think it works.  Just look at it this way, if the temperature starts to get warm, you can lose the cardigan and just rock the skirt and tank.  I believe the total amount of this outfit was around $50.

Now, this next outfit is part of Old Navy's spring collection.  It is filled with great dresses that can take you from day to night with bold prints and cute shapes.  They can be dressed up or down with just a switch of a shoe, purse, and jewelery.

This is a fabulous little dress that just SCREAMS for warmer weather. I personally can't wait, but I know we're gonna get a freak snowstorm before spring actually gets here.  Anyway, this dress is priced around $33, so you can still afford to go out for dinner and drinks and not go broke.

I only snapped a couple of photos, but you get the gist of what's in the store.  If you're like me, you probably already shop there.  But, if you don't , what are you waiting for?  Until next time...

I know, I know...

Hello all!! I just wanted to let you guys know I'm still amongst the living.  I've been really busy this month with trying to find a new place to hang my hat, finding a new 9 to 5, and windowing shopping mixed with a little of actual shopping.  Between all of that, I decided to color my hair.  I have been an undercover redhead for a long time.  So when I finally took the leap to color my hair again, I only did what I know; go red.  I love my new color, but I think I wanna go redder next time.  I can hardly wait until my next touch-up :).  Of course I couldn't talk about the color without showing a picture.  **WARNING** Please pardon my freeform afro going on right about now.  Today was just one of those days where I just added moisturizer and finger fluffed.

Of course, my hair color was done by none other than Takeisha Berry-Brooks at A Natural Affair Beauty Lounge.  So, if you're in Memphis or the surrounding area, look her up online at, or on FaceBook:  A Natural Affair Beauty Lounge.  She, and all the wonderful stylists will be glad to take care of you.  Until next time...
