I have a confession. I spent way too much money yesterday (what else is new). I always get a bit overzealous when the seasons change–I love Fall and Winter clothes! In the past 2 weeks, I have purchased 4 pairs of boots, a leather jacket, and countless pairs of skinny jeans, tissue sweaters, and fitted tee’s. Last night the hubs wanted to get in on the fun, so we hit the mall. At our last stop, we happened upon the most unique looking mannequin…
How sweet is that?! I’ve never seen a natural mannequin–and her hair is bigger than mine! Go Macy’s 😀

I long for the day when I can see such mannequins in the plazas out here.
I saw a similar mannequin in Macy's and I'm on the West Coast.
A friend sent these links my way since she knows (even after 4 yrs of being natural) I sometimes struggle with what to do with my hair. She also knows (by my own admission) that I use your site like my own personal "anti-relaxer" 12 step program …cause I check cn.com out on a regular. My only excuse for stalking your site like I do is that it keeps me up to date on the latest products and what other natural chicas are doing.
Any whoo…. Thought you might want to share these links with the CN.com community.

I love Coach outlets! Most of my coaches come from the outlets and I found two big ones there for $99 (they had like a crazy weekend sale)! I love me som coach, but I hate the prices!
Thanks ladies, ya'll got me sharing all the secrets!
I got the purse from the Coach Outlet…it was supposed to be 350, but I payed 150 after taxes 🙂 It's actually my first (and probably last) expensive purse. I'm rough on bags, and only wear big ones. Aldo has the best big purses, and actually 3 of my favorite bags came from there and didn't cost more than 35 dollars! I loved the color of this Coach…felt guilty, but had to go for it 😉
Thanks aunt k 🙂
I'm eyeballin that purse! Tell us more about the purse please!!!
Nikki you are just too cute! I love the natural hair mannaquin too! that pix is worth a thousand words to us in the natural hair community! I just love this blog it is so fresh!
Nikki, I agree with Anononymous 407. I love your style! Your hair in that picture is beautiful, and could the profile of that ring get any bigger?! Damn.
I'm so proud of you.
HILARIOUS!!! Love it!!! I'm noticing so many naturals everyday especially t.v. commercials!!! This is great!!!
Ok, so one day, you just have to do a dress-style post! I so dig your outfit choices!
Here's a pic of the boots on from last year–
I wore them regularly for 3 months, and the entire time while in DC for the inauguration!
I love the month of October too. It puts me in the mood for the smell of cinnamon or vanilla.
Going to have to run out and pick up some candles and some pretty scarves for those chilly fall evenings.
Ya'll know I'm a budget shopper! I look like a million bucks everyday, but my outfits usually cost between 30 and 100 dollars, lol.
I love Rack Room Shoes boots. I bought this pair last year:
They look a little plastic-y online…but I get stopped every time I wear them! People always want to know where I bought them from. They look like leather and elicit a 'wow, expensive boots' response from folks. I loved them so much, that I bought the exact same pair again this year!
I also bought these:
Great boots, great prices, and looks like you paid more than you did! I wear these flat boots daily–they jazz up most outfits and are very comfy. Now I need some dress boots!!!
Thanks ladies for the compliments. I wanted to cart that mannequin home with me!!!
Aww she's almost as pretty as you! I'm such a shopaholic can you tell us the boots you bought. I'm so lost in which ones to buy.lol
lucky you! we're turning the fashion world on it's head! (lame pun intended) lol
I love that you stopped and took a pic with the mannequin!!!
Natural hair is taking over! lol ~KF519
I can't remember if I've seen a mannequin with natural hair before!! That is too cool.
First of all I'm a shopaholic too. The only thing I can say about you overspending is that I'm a size 8 1/2 in boots, hook me up LOL
That mannequin looks like you LOL
They got a sistah doing one of the mannequin! love the hair! I went to three different tj maxx and marshalls last week and killed it. I purchased three sweater dresses, two cute sweaters, 4 pairs of jeans, and a pair of riding boots. For all of that I only spent $320! If i would have gone to the mall I would have spent wayyyyyyyyyyy more.
What are tissue sweaters?
Yay! That is so hot! You know what is funny? I get more compliments now on my hair curly then I did when it was mid-back length and straight.
Wow! That manequin is too cool! After hearing your shopping list, now I don't feel guilty about my recent purchase of 3 jackets and 4 sweaters! In fact, it's given me "justification" to go out and get those boots I wanted from last weekend! 🙂 *I love this website… <3 <3
