OMG! I just got home about an hour ago, I got on the Internet to find that Brittany Murphy is dead at age 32. Apparently, she died this morning from cardiac arrest. For those of you, who don't know who she is, she was the girl that played "Tye" in the '95 movie Clueless....You know, she was..."Rollin wit da homies!".... She also played in another one of my favorite movies, Uptown Girls (2003) with Dakota Fannin. I LOVED her in Uptown Girls. She was so fashion-forward, fun-spirited, and sweet. From the comments of people that knew her personally, she was that way in real life. Ironically, in 2006, she was also featured in a movie called The Dead Girl. This is such a tragedy, she was so young, and very talented. This sucks,... I swear, 2009 must have the worst Celebrity Death List Ever!!! I feel so bad for her family, they must be HORRIFIED, especially her husband. She just recently got married in 2007. Well anyway, my condolences go out to her family and all of her fans.

That’s right, you’ve guessed correctly – HAIR!
Whether short and pixie OR medium- length with waves or curls OR long and totally weaved out, Hair is a woman’s pride and glory and should be rocked accordingly. It’s such a topic of discussion that even comedian Chris Rock debuted a movie entitled “Good Hair” a few months back, which was very eye- opening for most and comical for others.
As with fashion, hair changes just as much ,so you MUST keep up with the trends. As a cosmetologist from the state of California, I am absolutely enamored with the hair industry – everything from the salon talk to enhancing a woman’s outward appearance, and of course the folks that come in selling any and everything from accessories, clothes, games for kids, you name it, the beauty salon will have it . LOL Its just something about the hair industry!
Well, the newest trend for the upcoming new year is COLOR! Not black or reds but warm, rich colors of brown. Caramel, mocha, walnut, cappuccino, or chocolate (why do I sound like I’m having a Starbucks moment) with added sprinkles of honey, bronze, or copper. You can have your trained colorist or hairstylist do highlights, lowlights, or the paneling or blocking technique, whatever tickles your fancy, this is the new “IT COLOR” for 2010. Trust me, you will have the glowy-golden look. Here’s a few celebs to show you how it should be done.
Mariah Carey & Rihanna

Torn and tattered. Dark blue or Light blue. Black or White. Skinny, flare, or boot cut. Yes, It's all about the denim, baby!
Regardless of the style or fit, everyone owns at least one pair of jeans, or needs to.Denim is a fashion must-have and is a vital part of your wardrobe. Jeans can be "dressed up" with a pair of smokin' stilettos or "dressed down" with a pair of jeweled ballerina slippers.
When finding the perfect pair of denim for your assets, its based upon style. But of course, I have to give a shout-out to all my "Label/Designer" junkies who don't mind paying the cost to be the boss!
These jeans are high-fashion that are marketed as status symbols and can be purchased at high-end department stores (Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales,etc) or specialty boutiques. William Rast (Justin Timberlake's line), Yanuk, Paige, Mavi, 7 For All Mankind, Citizen of Humanity and Joe's Jeans are just a few of the designers that women are ranting and raving about as these jeans start off at $200.
There are different cuts, as the leg opening makes a difference in denim, creating a classic or contemporary silhoutte.
Leg opening: approx. 20" or above
Looser fit from hip down; opens to a full, wide leg
Leg opening: approx. 18"
Fitted through thigh and knee; widens from knee down
Leg opening: approx. 16"
Fitted through thigh and knee; widens slightly from knee down
Leg opening: approx. 14"
Same width from knee down to bottom hem
Leg opening: approx. 12" or under
Snug fit through seat and thigh; tapers to a narrow leg opening
It's that time of year, so shop with

STAY TUNED FOR TSHC 2010
here we COME!!!

Well, if you don’t, you definitely need to get one and ASAP. Brandi Russell is the mastermind of Sacred Heart Collection because its so very “Classy and Fabulous”. Brandi was so kind to chat with me even though I know she was super duper tired as she just arrived back in the U.S. from India.
Let’s take a moment and see what this brand is all about, shall we….
KD:What is Sacred Heart Collection?
BR: I started the collection in 2008 to bring fun, flirty confidence back into mainstream women's wear. I’ve always avoided the super trendy shopping locations for fear of looking like every other girl. So, I started designing pieces exclusively for myself &friends and word quickly spread, & before I knew it people were asking me where they could purchase their own.
I graduated from Spelman College with a degree in Mathematics and worked for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for a small stint. Totally out of place, I wore all the trend right clothes, but so highly inappropriate for meetings, so I took the advice of my mentor and decided to apply for design school a
I decided that I would eventually start my own line, but I had to learn the ropes first. I worked for several brands, and national retailers over the span of 6 years. All of which gave me the invaluable knowledge that I have used help me run my business.
KD:Sacred Heart has been worn by singers LaToya Luckett & Keri Hilson, who else would you LOVE to wear your collection?
BR: Rhianna as she heads out for a night out in NY or LA or better yet, I would LOVE to see First Lady Michelle Obama in one of my vintage inspired dresses for a luncheon.
KD: You’ve lived in Atlanta, NYC, & Dallas – any fashion similarities or differences?
BR: Each city definitely has its own style. I love the ostentatious swagger that Atlanta emulates, the individuality NYC exudes, and the prim/proper attitude that Dallas emits. It's that bizarre combination, that helps me be a better designer & inspires me. Speaking of, I am inspired by old movies, wallpaper, music, landscape, EVERYTHING! I am also inspired by 50’s glamour – the women of that era got dressed to the nines daily just because.
KD: What’s the next “chess move” for Sacred Heart Collection?
BR: To continue to grow the business. I am working on new styles, coordinating an upcoming photo shoot, and planning a trunk show next month in Atlanta's own BluPrint Boutique. Always looking toward the next season!
Well, my fellow fashionistas, keep your Hearts open and embrace this Sacred Collection! www.sacredheartcollections.com
