A girl should be two things: Classy and Fabulous. - Coco Chanel.

Fashion fades, only style remains the same. - Coco Chanel.

Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. - Proverbs 31:30.

I ℓ♥√e a red bottom, but this is one that could have been kept out of the bunch.  When it comes to fashion, I take risks, trend or not. I DO WHAT I WANT! and that is what FASHION entails.

But, I can not see myself stepping out in this... but TRUST I could make it work. Anything fishnet is personally not my cup of green tea.

~Attention Button-Front Fishnet Boot~

I can just imagine young ladies attempting to wear fishnets to enhance the look of this shoe, looking foolish.  If you like this shoe ladies, you can purchase them at Neiman Marcus for $1325.  And keep your look CLEAN!  Pair these boots with a nice pair of jeans or leggings (jeggings♥) & a tee, or a simple dress with a CLASSIC clutch or bag. How you rock these boots will determine what form of attention you will receive.

Here are a few of my favs:

#449 Staying up so late that everything becomes funny
Midnight is long gone.

Maybe you’re crowded around a kitchen table pasting construction paper onto poster board, squirreled into sleeping bags on a cold basement floor, or drinking cold coffee and leaning over laptops before tomorrow’s big deadline.

Either way, it’s time to face facts: you’re up way too late.

Your eyes burn a bit, your head spaces out, random arms or legs starts throbbing, and maybe your scalp gets really, really, really, really itchy. Point is, you’ve ignored your body’s Go to Sleep signals for hours so now you’re hunched over a walking stick squinting deep into the foggy darkness of four, five, six in the morning.

The good news is your brain has developed just the system to charge you up with extra juice and help you power through. Yes, we’re talking about massively lowered Standards of Hilarity which help make everything funny. Someone steps on Styrofoam Jupiter, kicks a can of Coke onto the pizza, or accidentally deletes the Powerpoint slides, and suddenly everyone looks up at each other with tired raccoon eyes and… just starts cracking up.

Late night laughing is a beautiful moment because we’re letting ourselves stand up and step back from whatever’s keeping us up. Gone are the stresses of the group project, hanging dread of the deadline, and tensions tying us together. Now the differences dissolve and we realize we’re all part of the same Bleary Eyed Giggling clan — telling bad jokes, laughing till it hurts, and smiling till sunrise. AWESOME!

#490 Driving around with the windows down on late summer nights

Kids cruise on wobbly bikes, toddlers race on tipsy trikes, and you drift deep into the hot summer night. Swerve and curve on windy roads as darkness slowly falls and stars pop out to reveal a twinkly twilight glow. As you hit the gas and drop your windows the warm beating rush of summer air makes you smile and makes everything else in the world just fade away… fade away… fade away… fade away

#675 - Wordless Apologies

Tension fills the room and black clouds linger by the ceiling fan. Dinner was late, bills piled up, nobody called home.

Now you’re steaming in front of the TV while they’re crying softly in the bedroom upstairs. The stalemate burns quietly until they come down, enter the room slowly, grab your shirt sleeves and look right at you with a pair of warm, moist eyes while starting to give you a soft, smiling apology.

But you see them coming and your stomach churns with a wave of regret so before they even get it out, you interrupt with a head shake and a hug.


I received this in an email and I thought it was an interesting read.

 'They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English.

I can't even talk the way these people talk:

Why you ain't,
Where you is,
What he drive,
Where he stay,
Where he work,
Who you be...

And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk.

And then I heard the father talk.

Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth
In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living.

People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an Education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around.

The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal.

These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids.

$500 sneakers for what?

And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.

I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit.

Where were you when he was 2?

Where were you when he was 12?

Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol? 

And where is the father? Or who is his father?

People putting their clothes on backward:
Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong?

People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn't that a sign of something? 

Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?

What part of  Africa  did this come from??

We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about  Africa  ..... 
I say this all of the time.  It would be like white people saying they are  European-American.  That is totally stupid. 
I was born here, and so were my parents and grand parents and, very likely my great grandparents.  I don't have any connection to Africa, no more than white Americans have to  Germany  ,  Scotland ,  England , Ireland , or the  Netherlands  .  The same applies to 99 percent of all the black Americans as regards to  Africa  .  So stop,  already! ! ! 

With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap ......... And all of them are in jail.

Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem.

We have got to take the neighborhood back.

People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands' -- or men or whatever you call them now.

We have millionaire football players who cannot read.

We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs. We, as black folks have to do a better job.

Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us.

We have to start holding each other to a higher standard..

We cannot blame the white people any longer.'

Dr. William Henry 'Bill' Cosby, Jr., Ed.D.

My Curls

This summer has had a few blazing hot days in Chicago.  I stayed away from the flat iron and stuck with my natural curls.  I recommend this line for those interested in keeping their curls intact.  I use the Coconut and Hibiscus line and I LOVE it.  I use the Curl Control Shampoo, Conditioning Curl and Style Milk, and the Hold and Style Moisture Mist. It smells wonderful and works as good as it smells.  I use the body products also.  This line can be purchased at Target or at their website and follow them on Twitter @sheamoisture4u

I posted about Mixed Chicks before here, and I still swear by and use the leave in conditioner and deep conditioner.  MY CURLS NEED THIS LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER!  The leave in-conditioner is what keeps my curls intact, moisturized and lovely.  I use the Shea Moisture shampoo, smoothie, milk and mist mentioned above for upkeep.  You can purchase at and select stores and follow them on Twitter @mixedchicks
