For the past few months, I have been really considering cutting my hair. Okay, this is not the first time taking short hair under consideration as I have had short hair several times before, but after a couple of months, I was always back to adding extensions. Well, I had an idea this time. What if I bought a wig to give the illusion of short hair?………enter the Outre Pixie cut wig (purchase here).
Let me just say I love this wig, but straight out the package it looks like a hair skull cap. My baby boy even said “Mommy, that looks like a hair hat.” O_0 (no lies were told).
In the wig’s defense, once you start fingercombing and manipulating it, the wig actually looks cute. There was only one complaint. Apparently, I have a big head. By the time I took my “hair hat” off my head????? Ewwww, chile, it was throbbing.
When life happens to people, why is your blog the first place that is affected? Why?
Anyway, instead of giving you a long and very boring explanation, just know I have been placing my focus on my instagram page @thebohemiancosmo. Why the name change you ask? I mean, shouldn’t all your social media sites be uniform? Yes, they should but I wanted to focus strictly on fashion and nothing else.
My instagram page @challebrown is a hodge-podge of pictures, style inspiration and even home and decor. It’s just me being random. My new page is a little bit more focused. It’s sorda like an artist evolving and testing the waters. #betastages
Anyway, my plan is to launch a YouTube page in conjunction with @thebohemiancosmo as sometimes people want to see the “true you” in pictures and on camera.
For your convenience, I have linked my new instagram page to this blog. Just click on one of the pictures (on the right hand side under (“Follow us on Instagram”).
With my boyfriend’s old sweater and my iPhone camera, I decided to pay homage to one of my favorite singers and style inspiration, Jody Watley by recreating her “Still A Thrill” album cover for Halloween.
My favorite thing to wear on the weekend is not denim but camouflage. I have camo everything too from dresses, joggers, pants, skirts and even tank tops.
I love pairing these items with contrasting colors or fabrics like this backless knit sweater and faux suede booties but ultimately my main goal is comfort.
I even tone down my makeup because let’s be real, who is going to Target with their face beat to the gawds? 0_O

An easy/chic way to incorporate a subtle sexy look into your outfit of the day is wearing an off-the-shoulder sweater or top.
This style is currently trending this season so if you are looking for a wide variety of apparel check out Tobi.com. Not only is their selection awesome but the quality of their clothing is equally as awesome.
Did I just sound like a commercial? Yeah, maybe. 🙂

Ever so often I love to do what I call “Vintage Recreations” on my fashion blog where I use a vintage photo as inspiration for my “Outfit Of The Day”. Unknowingly, when I put this outfit together and was looking over the photos I thought “Oh, Wow, this ensemble reminds me a lot of Audrey Hepburn’s outfit in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s“. I guess my vintage style is becoming second nature to me now.
I told my boyfriend about the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” correlation and his response was “What’s Tiffany’s? Do they sell chicken?” O_O

As much as I try to take pictures in the daytime, I promise as soon as I get off work the weather does its very best to work against me. #sigh
Anyway, with the exception of the boots purchased from Shein , this outfit was a total thrift store find.
The dress is Norma Komali (I was so excited when I found this gem). This was the same day I found a Prada purse at Goodwill, too.
Now that I think about it, this was also the same day I won $23 from scratch offs. My boyfriend swears I won more than $23 based off my thrift store finds………(ha!!!)
As generic and somewhat juvenille the “Ugly Christmas Sweater” is to me, I love it. I just might be that woman wearing applique sweaters and vests during the holidays when I get older. I just might. #onlyGodcanjudgeme

“Why Blog?” – I ask myself that question sometimes and then I think about how much I love sharing my passion with the world and I get excited.
I mean I could say there is a little bit of “vanity” in taking and editing pictures of yourself, (I will be the first to admit it) but it’s also the feeling of “Who can I help by sharing this post?” or “Will my readers get as excited about this outfit or this collection as I do?”.
Even when I feel like I only have 2 followers or when walking to a location (for an OOTD) with my son wondering “Why am I taking this picture?”, I always think about the quote that says “Blog like no one is watching”.
