The Slayed Afro

Happy Saturday Darling Divas!!

Yes, I know that this isn’t a day that I usually post, BUT I meant to come up here yesterday, and that just didn’t happen. So I thought to myself why not put it up today? And obviously, here that post is. I have new hair!! I decided to go big with it this time around, and I am in love with it!!! So in today’s mini-blogpost I am just sharing my new hairdo, and I hope you all will enjoy! So sit back, what the video, and meet me below for more details!

Did you all enjoy? I hope so! I am definitely lovingggg my new look! Click here to cast your vote in the poll!  Being blonde is always fun for me, so I decided to take it back for a second. I dug into my archives and found some blonde pics of me. Oh, how I miss bleach sometimes.

So I wanted to get back to my blonde roots, but this time, no bleach was required! For this crochet install, I searched around for blonde hair that had dark roots because I wanted to look natural. I went to my beauty supply store and was lucky to find what I wanted!!

So this is the type of hair I used to achieve my look. The Durban Twist hair from Harlem125. I used three packs of RT27, and one pack of F1B/27. This is some big hair yall!!! So, for now, im rocking it as an afro, but I plan to put curls in soon.  This hair can do so many things, and is super soft! So click here to purchase online!  The website I linked is a longer length and comes in different colors. If you’re looking for the same hair as mine, I would look at your local beauty supply store, or do a further search online!

    So, ladies, that’s it for today’s mini-blogpost! Be sure to come right back here next week for two new blogposts! ANNDDD a special announcement is dropping next Saturday so get ready!!! Feel free to follow me on my social media. They are all linked above!! I love you lots like tater tots, I hope you have a great weekend, and I will see you Monday!

Dia & Co (September) Styling and Try on Video!

Hello, All my Darling Divas!

Happy Friday!!!! I don’t know about you, but I am so ready to get my fabulous weekend started! Today I am following up my Dia September unboxing video, with my styling and try on video! I got some pretty amazing styles this month, and I am excited to show them off to you! I don’t want to ramble on, so let’s get into the video!

Did you enjoy! Everything didn’t fit me well, but if they did nd I had more coin this would have been a full box purchase! I love how all the styles were so different, and that some were pieces I would have never picked for myself. Luna always amazes me!!

Taylor – Alicia Dress – $98.00

Size: 16W 

Keeping: Oh God Yes! 

There was no way that I was sending this back! I love this dress!!! It’s so perfect for fall, and it so my style! I have a banquet coming up in two weeks, and I can’t wait to rock this that night. As far as styling, for the event, I plan to let this dress shine on its own and the only style it with a pair of heels and clutch. But on my casual days, I plan to wear this with a jean jacket, tights, and boots for Fall! 

Junarose – Greta Straight Leg Jeans – $79.00

Size: 18 W

Keeping: No

The pants didn’t fit, so there is no picture, but I still am going to style them! If I were keeping the pants, I would style them casually with an olive green cardi, white turtleneck, and cheetah print flats. And I would also style them with a mustard sweater and funky boots!

Modamix – Kenna Tunic – $79.00

Size: 16W

Keeping: No

Button down tops are hard for bustier girls, and this surprisingly isn’t too bad, I just know I would be wondering all day about that slight gap by my boobs. So because of that, I sent it back. But it was such a beautiful length for a tall gal like me, and olive green is seriously my color! If I were to keep it, I would style it with leggings and boots, or with knee high boots and tights for a sexy look!

Under One Sky – Lucille Crossbody Bag – $36.00

Keeping: No 

 I really wasn’t expecting to think this was cute, but I was pleasantly surprised! I only didn’t keep it because I know I won’t wear it. But it’s nice to get accessories again! If I were keeping it, I would pair it with a simple jeans, uggs, and t-shirt.

 

Swak – Navaeh Tank – $29.99

Size: 1x

Keeping: No

 This tank top was unexpected. I looked at it and did not think I would like it. I tried it on, and it was actually not too bad!! I’m only not keeping it because I don’t have to have it, but it is definitely a nice wardrobe staple. If I were to keep it, I would pair it with jeans, cute heels, and a cropped jacket. I would also layer it over a pencil skirt with pointed flats and a moto jacket!

4 Looks, 1 Piece (Jennifer Seamed Pant)

Happy Friday Darling Divas!

I hope you are all ready to start your weekends as I am! I am coming here today to show you four looks all created around one piece! I got these amazing pair of black pants in my July Dia&Co unboxing, and I have BEEN LIVING IN THEM! They are so comfortable, and I have rocked them so many ways. So I decided to show you four different ways to style these pants. I am thinking of doing a series like this where I style one piece, four ways, so let me know what piece you want me to style next! It’s imperative to get as much wear out of your clothes especially if you are on a budget like me! This is just my way of getting creative and getting all my money’s worth out of my clothes! If you want to snag these amazing pants, then leave your stylist a note on Dia&Co telling her you want the Jennifer Seamed Pant in your next box. If you don’t have a box, don’t worry! Order yours today by clicking this link to my promo code! It allows all First Time customers to get their first styling credit ($20) free! Also just putting a disclaimer out that this video is not being sponsored! I am doing it on my own, I was not asked to this, and all opinions are my own. I just really love these pants and want everyone to have them! (lol)  With that being said let’s get into the video!

Did you enjoy the video? I had so much fun making this video! I really do love fashion, so if you have any fashion related videos you want to see let me know! Let’s get into the breakdown for each look!

Look 1
 Casual
Denim Shirt- Fashion 2 Figure
Crop Top- Forever21
Sandals- Payless
This look is perfect for your weekends, running errands, or hanging out with friends! If crop tops aren’t your thing, feel free to replace it with a t-shirt or blouse. This is pretty much one of my go-to looks right now. It’s comfortable, it’s cute, and did I mention it was comfortable?
Look 2 
 Formal
 Top- Dia&Co
Shoes- Payless 
 Who said you couldn’t wear pants to a formal event? This outfit is perfect for attending a wedding, birthday parties, or anything else that requires you to get dressed up. This beautiful peplum is so fun! I loved it and couldn’t wait to style it! This outfit will have you looking the part, but being comfortable at the same time. 
Look 3 
Work Chic
Blazer- Target
Blouse- Torrid
Shoes- Payless
  If your office attire is business casual, then this outfit is perfect for you! You get to look stylish and be comfortable at the same time. You can feel free to add a longer shirt if you want to cover your butt. I love this outfit because of the pop of peach in the blazer! It spices up the outfit, and will def have people at the water cooler asking you where you got your outfit from. 
Look 4 
Night Out
Cape- Fashion to Figure
Tank- Dia&Co
Shoes-Torrid
If I had to pick a fave look from this lookbook, this would be it! This outfit is perfect for your next night out. It’s going to turn heads, have you feeling confident, and you can dance the night away in these pants. If you see this look on IG when I go out for new years, you do not have deja vu. You saw it here first! 
So, ladies, that’s it for today’s video! Which look was your fave! I love them all ( obviously) but that last outfit just gives me the most life! If you like videos like this, let me know!
