Socialite Style Pick | Glam Rebel

Bad Boy who???? Any bad girl rocking this outfit is sure to be the center of attention whenever they step out on the scene. The femininity of the lace trimmed cami is a perfect contradiction to this sexy structured blazer & the multi-chain necklace. MAC’s Make Me Over is a beautiful pink tone blush that looks great on a variety of skin tones. Im a huge fan of vintage looking brooches, so I just had to throw one in with this piece. What is there NOT to love about this sexy black bootie with a pair of feminine textured tights? What do you think? HAUTE or NOT???

Socialite Style Pick | Can You Stand the Rain?

In Fashion, Socialite Syle Pick on September 10, 2011 at 2:31 am
On a rainy day when my hair decides it wants to FRO all the way out, there is nothing like a haute outfit to make everything alright.  I think this haute little ensemble looks great while you are hitting the streets with the jacket & umbrella on, but it looks just as chic when you take the jacket off and leave the umbrella aside to dry.  And who can hate on your ever so perfect pout accentuated with this strikingly beautiful red lipstick compliments of  the fabulous YSL.  What do you think? HAUTE or NOT?

Natural Hair & the Generation Gap | The Natural Socialite

In Natural Hair, Self Help Series, Socialite Says on July 6, 2011 at 11:35 am

 

Ever since I completed my transition process and became natural, I have received mixed reviews from different people in reference to their opinions about my “new do”. When I first did my big chop, I was definitely not  1) prepared to deal with being COMPLETELY natural & 2) prepared to deal with having SHORT, completely natural hair. If I could have done it over again, I definitely would have transitioned more than the 10 months that it took me to grow my mini fro.   I have since grown to love my hair & its unpredictable nature, but since 2009, neither of my grandmothers have gotten accustomed to the beauty of my “nappy hair”.

I know that I am the only one who has to love my hair, and quite frankly…. I do & could care less what people though.  My experiences with some of my “elders” however have caused me to stop & think twice about the generational gap that exists when it comes to natural hair. Going against someone else’s standards of beauty can be challenging, but nothing beats loving yourself for who you are.

Have any of you witnessed the generational differences that exist when it comes to having natural hair?  Did you get any opposition from your family members when you decided to transition?  If so, how did you deal with the “pressure to perm”?
