BGLH Style: Yaa in New York

• May 29, 2013

Introduce yourself!
Y:
Yaa is my name. I live in Brooklyn, New York (My new home). I work in technology on the product end of things.

What is your style philosophy?
Y:
To be honest I always want to be comfortable, and I want to feel confident walking out the door. This holds the core of my style philosophy. Confidence above all else.

How would you describe your sense of style?
Y:
Eclectic and undefined. I have really learned my body over the past few years and I mostly wear garments that flatter my body structure. There are so many trend styles that I think are great, but I also know that they will not work for me. Some people think I can wear anything, but that is not true. I think once you understand that, you can really tailor the look and feel that makes you unique and smashing.

What is the process of deciding what to wear in the morning?
Y:
I wish I had a process. I just wake up, go to my closet and pick out something. I go with my mood. Sometimes I will wear all black for two days. At times I will wear bright colors for a whole week. It all depends on how I feel. I guess my style is very intrinsic to my mood, which makes sense as I am a Virgo.

What are the three favorite things in your closet?
Y:
This is a difficult one. I don’t really get attached to items of clothing anymore, so I could wear sneakers on the weekends for a few weeks and that could be my favorite piece. At the moment, I would say I love wearing these silver rings that I have had in my things for years now, but I just rediscovered them. They are four rings that I have been wearing together and one has turquoise in it. Another would be my thrifted leather jacked with suede appliqué that I bought during the fall of last year. Lastly, I love these 7 For All Mankind high heeled shoes that I just purchased. I do not normally wear heeled shoes, so when I find one that is comfortable, I run for the wallet 🙂

What are some of your favorite shops/websites for clothes, shoes and accessories?
Y:
Asos.com for a lot of dresses and unique leotards. Shoes I normally go to Macy’s or Lord and Taylor. I buy my accessories online and in terms of jewelry I get inspired by what I see on Instagram a lot. I have lots of jewelry, but I am not someone who wears them at all.

How long have you been natural?
Y:
I have been natural most of my life. At this point I believe for about 21 years.

How and why did you transition into natural hair?
Y:
It was not a conscious decision. I just didn’t want my scalp being sore anymore from relaxers as a child.

What is your signature hairstyle?
Y:
I guess my tapered cut with the highlights.

Describe your styling regimen over the course of the month.
Y:
For the past two months I have been wearing marley twists as a protective style. Since I have had somewhat of a tapered cut I usually wear my hair in a very easy to manage manner. I sleep in twists almost every night with a scarf and I undo the twists in the morning. Sometimes I will lightly comb out my hair for a big hair look, however I do not comb it out completely because I still want the twist out definition. I mostly use Shea Moisture products (Moisture Retention Shampoo, Conditioner and the Curl and Style Milk). Over the past week or two I have been using Ouidad’s “Curl Recovery” line, which I received for free at an event. It’s pretty good, but I love my Shea Moisture products. Not to forget I sometimes use Kinky Curly Knot Today if I want really defined twist outs.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?

You are beyond beautiful!

Alisa

Wow! She is beautiful! I love her skin complexion too! It’s funny how in the African American community, “light skin” is seen as more desirable than “dark skin”, but I personally find “dark skin” to be absolutely beautiful! Of course, I did not always feel this way, because I was blessed with “dark skin” and like many African American girls, did not learn to see the beauty in my skin until I became an adult.

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Thanks

First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!

Effervescent dietary supplements are creating quite a fizz in the health and wellness industry of America. Fat soluble vitamins include A, D, E, and K and are found in fish oils, meats, vegetables, and dairy. ’ In fact, according to a study by The American Academy of Sleep Medicine, treating insomnia naturally leads to significant improvements in up to 80 percent of cases.

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

My blog site is in the very same area of interest as yours and my visitors would certainly benefit from a lot of the information you present here. Please let me know if this alright with you. Thank you!

Hello, I do believe your website could possibly be having internet browser compatibility issues. Whenever I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, excellent blog!
