Last weekend I had the pleasure of participating in Michigan Fashion Week 2014. I say participating instead of attending because the week was filled with events that encouraged networking, learning, and showcasing personal style mixed with the latest trends. By no means am I a fashion blogger but, I will say I was beyond pleased with the fashion displayed at the events. So, here are my Top 5 moments from Michigan Fashion Week 2014!

At Saturday’s show the designers displayed many different styles. There was street-wear, earrings, men’s fashion, everyday style, and many others showcased throughout the show. A few of my favorites included: Jesse Jane‘s black and white pieces, Fancee‘s all black, the entire Detroit Respect line (including the schmoney dance), Monica Williams‘ earrings, Lena Harbali’s ‘African inspired print, and Jireh de Jose‘s entire line.

After watching the video, I was inspired to try this “wash and go” method. Usually I twist out my hair, and if I did a wash and go I wouldn’t cleanse, just co-wash. I would leave some product on my hair, which creates heaviness and length. I’ve seen success story after success story about this new way to do a wash and go, so after I took out my twists I decided to try it on my 4a/4b hair…twice.

The first time I tried it didn’t go so well. I didn’t even take a picture because it looked a mess. If you can use your imagination, it looked something like this:
