‘The Real’ returns today!

Haute off the press:
“The Real,” the one-hour, daily talk show hosted by Tamar Braxton, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon, will debut on Monday, September 15th on the Fox Television Stations and in national syndication (check your local listings here), with a rebroadcast in primetime on cable network BET.

“The Real” is led by five bold, diverse and outspoken hosts — Tamar Braxton, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon. These women reflect the home audience and unapologetically say what women are actually thinking. Their unique perspectives are brought to life through their candid conversations about topics ranging from their own personal lives to the news of the day to beauty, fashion and relationships.

These women are all going through varied life experiences, including new motherhood, new marriages, dating or singledom, that relate to every woman’s own trials and tribulations. Unlike other talk shows, each of the five hosts is admittedly a “work in progress” and fearlessly invites the home audience into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion will turn the traditional talk show on its head.

Connect with the show via social media!

“The Real” airs weekly at 1 PM on WABM 68; will you tune in? Would it be great if they had correspondents who are “real” women (not celebs)? Just throwing that out into the universe!

This made my day.

The sunglasses! #thatisall
I totally think these are staged.

I know why the caged birds sing…

How adorable is this handbag from Kate Spade?! The “Pollie” handbag ($498) from the Hello Shanghai collection is textured suede with 14-karat gold hardware and metallic jacquard lining.

A bit much for your taste, but still looking to add a touch of whimsy to your accessory wardrobe? Try the Birdcage coin purse.

Don’t be the employee everyone gossips about because your wardrobe is clueless! Contact me for tips on:

Transitioning your wardrobe from campus to the corporate office;
Navigating the office dress code; and
Getting the biggest bang for your buck

I’ve consulted with individuals and delivered dynamic presentations on style to nonprofits and companies and would love to share my tips with you. Dressing for the office doesn’t have to be boring; it can show off your personality without making you a topic of discussion for all the wrong reasons. Contact me directly to discuss further!

Oh, you didn’t make it to NYFW either?

I’m here for this new line of tongue-in-cheek tees by Tees in the Trap! This one ($30) was made for me! I’d toss it on with a leather pencil skirt or some destroyed denim, a pair of haute shoes and call it a day.

Ask Alexis: Finders Keepers

Q: I’m loving Jersey Belle’s style! Where can I find the super cute graphic sweatshirt she wore on last week’s “Secrets of the South” episode? – Bama Belle

A: Bama Belle, here comes the boom! (See what I did there?) Birmingham’s latest reality star Jaime Primak Sullivan’s pop art French terry sweatshirt (pictured in part above) looks super similar to the one from Target’s previous 3.1 Phillip Lim collaboration last fall, which originally sold for $29.99 but is no longer in stores. However, I suggest you search for it on eBay. Happy shopping!

Sidebar: Are you watching Jersey Belle, which airs tonight at 9 PM? I kind of like it; I admire Jaime’s outspoken personality!
