Heavy on Fashion Reads: If Not 4 U and Some Shoes book review*





Hello, all my fashion divas and gurus! I am so so sorry for all the review and post delays! So many changes happening so I had to take an unexpected hiatus. I am happy to announce that Heavy on Fashion is back and some new features and content are coming. 

Today, I am uber excited to tell you about a great new book that I had the pleasure of reading & reviewing. If Not 4 U and Some Shoes is a great tale about Francie Lanoo, an aspiring fashion designer and footwear enthusiast who embarks on a quest to find her ideal pair of shoes. This Rom-com lit is not just about the love if shoes, which would be great. If Not 4 U and Some Shoes is also about finding your purpose and whole dealing with the unpredictability of life.

Giovanni Eco Chic Cosmetics  Blackberry & Coconut Oil Repairing Hot Oil Hair 

So,  let's talk about hair! As you may or may not know, I am currently on my natural hair journey. This hair journey has been a bit of a story. I had some great accomplishments and some serious pitfalls.  Luckily Giovanni Hot Oil Treatment has been a great deep conditioning lifeline. The winter was harsh to my hair despite using protecting styles and techniques. I know I am not the only one facing getting my hair back for the Spring.

Heavy on Fashion talks to Iyala Anne, Creator and designer of Ane Amour



Heavy on Fashion: Tell me a little about yourself. Where are you from? What's your educational background?  What do you like to do in your free time besides being an entrepreneur?
Iyala Anne: I was born and raised in New York City, where I grew up as a very creative child.  In my spare time, I enjoy attending a ballet class, practicing yoga, painting, singing and writing songs.

Heavy on Fashion: So lets talk about the Ane Amour collection. How did it start?
Iyala Anne:  I put off venturing into the designer fashion industry for quite some time, due to its’ reputation of being cut-throat and superficial.  Against that notion, though, I always found myself coming back.  There’s a passion for design and a vision I had for myself that I couldn’t continue to ignore.
