Do you Color at Work???

Yes, the question of the day is do you color at work?  I am talking about hair color that is...I know I had you going their for a moment? Right???? Well over the summer, I colored my hair light brown, which was very similar to my skin tone. The color was not real bright, but more of a bronze color, which I loved and rocked for the whole summer gracefully....However, my aunt was not so in love with the color and she actually said to me, " I am not sure if I like the color because it blends into your skin tone." Really Auntie :) She thought I should either go darker or lighter in color, but I was fine with the color I had chosen..Her comment didn't offend me, I thought that it was actually quite comical...It was fine, it was her opinion, and I was in love with my summer color..So, I  laughed  it off because I thought it was actually funny.  However, I noticed at work I was getting a lot of attention. Mostly good comments a few people thought I could actually go lighter as well.  I thought about going lighter, but was afraid that the color might be too bright for the office...Not sure if I was ready to push that envelope just yet, being that I was one of the few minorities with natural hair in the office and a brighter color might just send me to the unemployment line (just kidding).. As mentioned I had no real complaints with the color anyways and only that I grew tired of the color once the summer was o.v.e.r...Needless to say, I recently dyed the light brown out to off black after I grew tired of the color. (I will post a picture once I find a cute one to tag) With the fall in motion, leaves are falling, trees are blowing, and change approaching..What are you doing with your hair for fall?  Do you color at work and if so, are there any colors you believe are inappropriate for work?  FYI, I love, love, these styles and colors and would rock all of these styles to work..What About YOU???Naturally FabulousNaturally FabulousNaturally Fabulous

Fall Fashion, & Fun

Hello All, I have been on a little hiatus for awhile trying to decide to keep this blog or move along for various reasons. In any event, I have not come up with a decision yet, but I still feel a bit connected to this site, and an obligation to full fill.  Therefore this post is being published in spite of lack of time, etc. 

So, without further ado, let's talk fashion shall we.  I am on a mission to find the following for fall;

  1. A shoe boot that is both functional in the office and on the weekend. It must be comfortable and trendy, not to high, but not flat.. After taking an assessment of my closet my pair from last year must be retired... Would offer a picture but too embarrassed...Any suggestions?
  2. A signature black paint suit, is in dire need .  I am in need of a tailored black suit for the fall. The only thing is that I don't want a long suit jacket it should be a jacket that I can tuck the sleeves and roll up. I really like the idea of a wonderful fitted tuxedo pant that flairs with a jacket to match...Don't know if I will be able to find it but wishful thinking...
  3. A new handbag...I have been on the prowl for the last couple of months, and nothing has really caught my eye...Well that's not totally true, see my coworker did prop her 15,000  Orange Hermes Burkin bag on her desk and stopped me in my tracks...Maybe that is why I can't seem to focus on the later...In any event Hermes is not in my budget, but if someone out there would like to gift me one, I would be more that happy to accept :)  If not, then that leads me on my journey to find a new bag for the fall..

What is your favorite item for fall?  Do you put your summer items away totally or do you still rock them into the season??

Look of The Week go to.....
