Sweeties, I must admit I was little sad when “Being Mary Jane” didn’t come on Tuesday night. I actually loved the show. Gabrielle Union, who plays Mary Jane, along with AKIL Production did an amazing job on addressing real life issues. We all can relate to some aspect of the show. We also loved the show’s soundtrack and Mary Jane’s wardrobe. It appears some of you ladies also tuned in to the BET scripted drama. We recently received a “Reader Request” from Anna who also loved MJ’s wardrobe. She said, “Where can I purchase the yellow jacket being Mary Jane was wearing?”

I’ve since changed my mind. I don’t mind spending a few dollars on stylish  flats. I’ve heard beauty cost, but so does comfort. Continue Reading »
