[Throwback Thursday] Subway & 702

Welp since the title of my last post was "This Little Game We Play" why not stick with the theme for #ThrowbackThursday. The hit song "This Lil' Game We Play", by Motown's 90's group Subway and labelmates 702, came out back in 1995 and was probably one of the hottest songs of that year. The single actually went gold, selling almost a million copies. And check this out... it was produced by Gerald Levert! So you already know it was a banger! I still listen to this song regularly, and it's on both of my ipods.

You can check out the video below as well as a few other videos from 702... They were one of my favorite 90's R&B girl groups! Don't you just miss the 90's??

"Baby don't stop if you think you can't finish, come prepared if you think you're gonna win this"

This Little Game We Play

You know they say men and women alike love a chase, right? I have to agree in every way! I was thinking about this last night, and it hit me just how much we all love a good chase. How often do we find ourselves going after that one person who shows us the least interest? Now I'm not saying that we go for the worst possible people lol, but I do think we go for those that give us a chase rather than those who are readily available to us.

Think about it like this, if there are two guys/girls that you're into but one calls and texts you faithfully and the other does randomly but not all the time... which will you be into more? In this situation I'm not speaking of any serious relationships, but say you're just getting to know both. I can't speak for everyone else (and I may be backwards myself), but I would probably more interested in the person who I don't hear from as often. That person would just seem more intriguing to me, and personally I love a challenge. I'm not the type of person who wants someone who runs at my beck and call lol, so I do find myself "chasing thrills" more often than I should! I can honestly say most of the time I come out losing thinking like this, but hey at least I can be honest about it! Lol

[Item Of The Day] Animal Print Clutch

Sooo many people sleep on Forever21 trying to keep up with the Joneses by only buying name brand clothes and accessories, but let me just be the first to tell  you that is MY STORE! Lol I could probably live in Forever21, but they have so much to choose from I usually get a headache in the store. However, when you're looking online it's very easy to find things that really catch your eye. You know I'm all about a sale and I found this cute Leatherette Safari Clutch  for only $15.84. That's deal is crazy and the clutch doesn't look cheap at all. It's also a versatile accessory and can add a kick to different types of looks.

Are you feeling this clutch??

SN: I have the perfect pair of brown and black peep toe pumps to go with this! :)

We Like To Party!

Coming up on November 11th, the Boss Chic Files' one year anniversary will be upon us! I seriously can't believe it's been a year already since I started this blog! There will be a lot of changes and new segments added to the blog to relaunch it after the one year anniversary. You can expect different contests, interviews, a section on food and wine, plus more! We will start giving out prizes to our most loyal readers, as well as hold contests to give out random gifts to show our appreciation!

One of the main things we having coming up is a party for the one year anniversary. It will be here in my hometown in Martinsville, VA on November 19th. The location is currently undisclosed, but of course my bosses and boss chics will be the first to know about it! I'm even planning to give away a few free tickets to some of my readers who are not in this area but would like to come party with us anyway :)

Things are definitely about to pick up for the blog, so you have to make sure you stay tuned for everything that's in store! Also if there are any people out there trying to get started like me who specialize in fashion designing, making jewelry, or have anything DOPE you want to get out there, you can email me at and I'll see what I can do for you! I've done different blogs in the past to help people get their names out there, and I definitely don't mind helping people when I feel like they have something to bring to the table.

Stay bossy, never basic!!

Jessica Simpson Valla Boots

Jessica Simpson Valla Boots $149.00

I honestly don't know which is worse, my addiction to shoes in general or my addiction to Jessica Simpson's collection! She is a beast when it comes to shoes and purses and her prices are very reasonable for her to be a household name. I love me some JS! These boots above are $149 and they're called the "Valla Boots". These would be cute with just about anything, but I did find a banging blazer from TopShop to wear with them for the fall. Blazers are a great alternative to jackets for when it starts to get cool, and they are so fly! Check out the blazer below!

[Positive Monday] Memories Last A Lifetime

My mommy and I <3

It's Monday again *weeps* lol I'm kidding! I actually don't even mind being up and at work today even though it was still dark outside when I got here O_0... For the first time in who knows how long, Trey was actually awake when I dropped him off at school this morning. He goes on to ask me "Mama why is it dark outside?" Lol! I tried to explain to him that when the seasons change it stays dark longer, but he didn't understand. Kids are too funny!

Speaking of my little man, unfortunately he's pretty much accident prone like his mama and is always getting hurt in some kind of way. (I'm hoping he'll grow out of this!!) I got a call from his teacher on Friday while I was at work saying that Trey had hurt his arm at school. He was apparently playing on the carpet sitting down, and one of his friends were running around and ran into his arm which caused his wrist and hand to bend backwards. I initially thought it was broken because his teacher said he wouldn't move it. After he kept complaining to her about it, I got off work and took him to the doctor. Him being the dramatic child that he is, had me carrying him into the doctor's office, then into the hospital where they had to do his xray. Luckily nothing was broken or fractured, but they gave him a wrist brace to wear for a few days. I can't help but thank God that it wasn't more serious! (God knows I can't deal with being his nurse for too long, I'm telling ya'll he is EXTREME when he's hurt!! LOL)

[Throwback Thursday] Ray J & Fab

With all the beef surrounding Ray J and Fab earlier this week, it was only right that I dedicated #ThrowbackThursday to them! I decided to post a song from each artist when they first came out, that helped put them on the map (Fab's being moreso my favorite over Ray's lol)... I won't lie though this song of Ray J's used to KNOCK back in the day. But the Fab joint below was definitely a summer time banger.

Check out both videos below and let us know if either one used to be one of your favorite songs! Did you think either would end up where they are in their careers now? I definitely didn't think I'd see the day where they'd be in a scuffle lol!

Let Go To Get One

How many times do we find ourselves waiting to make it official with someone that we really like or love? We all know how it is, you find the one that really catches your attention and while they may not be the most perfect person in the world, they fit you. After awhile feelings get involved, but things still never progress and you find yourself stuck in the same position time after time. You feel like you should hold on because you have developed a special bond with that person, but at the same time you feel like you'll never take it to the next level. Sound relateable?

[Positive Monday] Every Little Thing Counts

It was only right that I post a pic of Floyd Mayweather in his stunnas for #PositiveMonday right?? Right lol. I didn't get to watch the fight, but trust and believe my twitter timeline kept me up on every move made, ultimately ending in Mayweather knocking out Ortiz after 11 minutes. Supposedly Mayweather made 25 million bucks for the short time that he was in the boxing ring. We know who's having a positive Monday today!! Lol

Bossy Links- Jay Z Love Child Rumors Cleared + More

Here are a few links to keep you up on the latest celeb news (and gossip lol) from the week! Check it out below! -LaBellaBoss ♥

Everyone have a weekend! 

Item of the Day- Pink Leopard Belt

I've said before that my style is very simplistic when it comes to fashion. A lot of times I like to wear black (I guess because it goes with everything), so I'm always finding different accessories and pieces to add spice to a plain outfit. The item of the day is this Betsey Johnson metallic leopard belt for $28.00. This belt could add so much variety to your closet in itself, and if it's not overdone it can really add a signature look to your outfit. Tell us, are you feeling this? Let us know! :)

Monica's New Video + #ThrowbackThursday

Monica's new video just dropped this week for her latest single "Anything (To Find You)" featuring Rick Ross. The track is produced by Missy Elliott, and I don't know about the rest of ya'll but I LOVE when Monica works with Missy on her albums! Lil' Kim was originally on the track but was removed per request of Biggie's mom, Mrs. Wallace. 

I love this song and the 90's vibe it gives! Everything about this video was a thumbs up for me, from her hair and makeup to her clothes and shoes. Monica's style is ALWAYS killing the competition. The simplicity of the video made it very fun to watch as well. I even enjoyed the small part in the video of the dancers, and I like the fact that they weren't over the top. This video reminds me of the old school Monica with a little bit of Mary J mixed in the bunch. You can check out the video after the break as well as the #ThrowbackThursday video for the week.

I decided to do the throwback video of a song that Monica's new single made me think of. It's one of if not THE best hip hop collab ever... Can you guess what it is?? Check it out after the break!

[New Video] "Can't Get Enough"- J Cole ft Trey Songz

"Now I ain't got no kids yet, but this right here's for practice" ^_^

Who authorized my hubby J Cole to make a hit with my old flame Trey Songz and not invite me out for the video?? I'm insulted LOL! Anywho J Cole, who is gearing up for his debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story, released the new video for his single "Can't Get Enough" yesterday. The song is featuring Trey Songz and has a guest appearance at the end of the video from my wanna-be bff Rihanna.

First of all, I love this song and I love the metaphors he uses! A few weeks ago I tweeted how I hate for rappers to just throw a bunch of metaphors in a song that don't tie together, but that's never an issue with Mr. Cole. This song is about him meeting a girl and the loving is so good that they can't get enough of each other. Throughout the song he talks about the things this girl makes him want to do, and all the reasons people are telling this girl she shouldn't mess with him. Not once does he ever get off topic... he has metaphors for days!

I'm TOO excited about this upcoming album because I think J Cole can change the rap game. He's young, fly, and REAL. He's not out here just making music to come up like the rest of the young rappers are, so I have mad respect for him. And as much I hate the word swag, whew J Cole is just the epitome of that! #lovehim :)

SN: Shoutout to him for the variety of women he chose for the video!

The album will hit stores on September 27th... Will you be buying? Check out the video after the jump! #ColeWorld

Item of the Day- Fall Hat

As you can tell with the wishy washy weather, the seasons are about to change before our eyes; therefore, we need to be prepared as best we can fashionably. Since it will start to be colder in the morning and throughout the day, you really should have a cute hat or two as an accessory for the season. I found this teal pinched floppy hat  at Baker's website for $32.00. The material of this hat is perfect for fall and I love the colors they have as well. In addition to teal they also have the hat available in black and rust. Let us know what you think!

Fall Trend- Chunky Heels

When I was younger, I HATED the way chunky heels looked. I couldn't wait until I was old enough to wear stilettos like my mama lol. Well now that I'm older, I think certain styles of chunky heels are very cute and fashionable. I like the way these can add a classy/timeless look to an every day outfit. You can definitely look for these to be in style this season; and since fall is right around the corner, I decided to do a post of some of my favorite heels like these. You can check them out after the break!

October's Glamour Magazine

I know most of you have already seen Nicki Minaj's fashion photo spread from October's issue of Glamour Magazine right?? Is she werking it or what! In my opinion this has been one of her best shoots thus far, but that's not the REAL reason I'm doing this post. Yes Nicki can take a mean picture, but also in October's Glamour Magazine is my very own best friend Dorian Carter!

 Dorian and I have been best friends since 6th grade, and he just recently graduated from UVA this past May. He had the opportunity to do a shoot with Glamour Magazine as well, and the picture they chose turned out so dope! He told me that the photo shoot was something they contacted him to do for fun, and I told him he should do it more often :)

I love seeing my friends and others around me doing positive things in life, so I just had to post his pic straight from the magazine. Make sure you check it out below as well as the rest of Nicki's spread. Also make sure you cop the magazine if you haven't already!

Shoe Candy of the Day

"Her feet are killing her, I call it shoeicide."- Fabolous

I would like to raise my right hand and announce that I have a serious addicion that I need to kick... heels! I mean really, when I'm at work I'm browsing the internet to see what new shoes have come out on my favorite websites. This has got to stop lol. However, as long as I'm going to be an addict, I'll make sure I keep my boss chics updated on any new shoes that I like *winks eye* lol.

 The above shoe called Cape Coral from Aldo's will run you at approximately $90.00. It's made of a suede material (which I think is great for the fall), and the heel is 5.5 inches. To add to that, bright colors will really be in this season so these fuschia heels are a perfect way to stay on top of your shoe game. Let us know, are you feeling these pumps??

Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

Don't you just love this pic of Mary J?? Her shades are always on point! Anyway, it's #PositiveMonday again already, where did the weekend go?? I've been sort of MIA for the past few days but I'm back and in full force. However, I do have mad homework this week so don't get ill with me if I don't post every day lol.

I always try to start the week off on a positive note in hopes of making it last through the week. On Friday I received a letter from my school telling me that I was only one class away from graduating with my associates degree. I happen to be enrolled in that class now, so I'll have my associates in December. After that I can finally work towards my bachelor's degree studying something that I love.

Throwback Thursday- Case of the Ex

Mya was one of my favorite singers when she first came out in 1998 with her hit single "Movin' On" featuring Silkk The Shocker. I was probably stanning for Mya back then like I stan for Beyonce' now lol. Mya was and still is gorgeous, she had a decent enough voice, and she could dance.... so what happened to her career? Her Fear of Flying album stayed on repeat in my boom box back when I was in 6th grade lls. I really thought her career would blossom more than it has.

Now of course she does have quite a few hits under her belt including "Lady Marmelade", "It's All About Me" with Sisqo, "Free", "Fallen", and "Case of the Ex" but she just hasn't had the IT factor to keep her out there as an artist. Anywho, I decided to do a #ThrowbackThursday post of my favorite video of her's "Case Of The Ex". This song used to go hard and have you ready to cuss out your man and his ex girl all in one breath lol.

Check out the video below the break... Do you think Mya could have been bigger with the right people behind her? Were you a fan?? I do know one thing, her body makes me want to go to the gym and never eat again lol!! It's SICK!

Meeka Claxton Gets The Boot

Welp TMZ has announced that poor lil tink tink Meeka won't be coming back for the fourth season of Basketball Wives, and contrary to popular belief it's not because she quit. Since Meeka sued Tami over her bitch slapping her on tv, Tami has since stated that she would not be coming back on Basketball Wives if Meeka would be on the show. Now we all know that Tami makes the show, so you know VH1 nor Shaunie are going down like that. They simply gave Meeka the boot! Check below to see what Evelyn has to say about this!

Hahahaha I just couldn't resist!! :-P

Bow Wow's Baby Girl

Contrary to his wishes for his daughter to remain out of the public eye, Bow Wow's baby mother Joie Chavis posted a twit pic of her anyway. Bow Wow announced a few months ago that he had just had a baby girl, named Shai Moss. Well here's the first official pic of her and I have to say she is freaking adorable!! Babies warm my heart! Good luck to Bow Wow with fatherhood in the future, his little girl is going to be a heartbreaker!

Happy Birthday Queen Bey!

It's Queen Bey's 30th birthday!! I confess that I get on the stan side when it comes to Beyonce' lol. I've been a huge fan since Destiny's Child first came out, but I think I went into stan mode when she released her first solo album. As a tribute to her turning 30, I wanted to post her interview with Piers Morgan on CNN from two months ago where she said she would like to have a baby at 30... however, I couldn't copy the video from youtube *Sad face*.

Instead I found something even better, which was Beyonce's episode of MTV Diary! That used to be my show! This episode ventures into depths of her career that we don't really get to see anymore since she has become more private. It shows her preparing for the release of the single "Baby Boy" as well as her preparing for the 2003 VMA's and footage of Destiny's Child as a group. Check out the videos below from that episode and let us know what you think!

Happy 30th Birthday Beyonce'!!

25 Days Of Lockdown

Well it looks like T.I. won't be coming home for another 25 days. According to MissInfo, The Federal Bureau of Prisons didn't like the form of transportion that Tip used to be transferred from Arkansas to the halfway house in Atlanta. Therefore they have ordered that he remain incarcerated until his full sentence is over on September 29th. However, they didn't release any full details of what was wrong with his method of transportation, I'm assuming they were just mad. Here's an official statement that was released by Tip's lawyer regarding the matter: 

“The Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) appears to have an issue with the circumstances surrounding TI’s transportation from Arkansas to Atlanta. T.I. got on a private bus in the prison’s parking area in full view of BOP employees. Indeed, he was actually escorted to the bus by a prison guard.”

What are your thoughts about this?? I just hope he stays focused and stays out of jail for good after he's released again.

Hawthorne Gets The Boot

Welp according to one of my favorite bloggers FreddyO, Hawthorne won't be getting picked up for a fifth season! Am I the only one that's shocked by this? Many people on my twitter timeline were really into this show, so it's hard to believe that it's getting cancelled. Were you a fan of Hawthorne? Let me just tell you, my aunt and grandma are gonna be two unhappy campers when I tell them this!

Rumor has it that the steamy love scene between Jada and Marc Anthony's characters on the show caused the split between him and Jennifer Lopez as well as the rumored split between Will and Jada. Now all of a sudden the show isn't getting picked up again... Things that make you go hmmm.. let me find out Will and JLo can't handle their loves getting close to anyone else... lol I'm kidding :)

SN: Everyone have a safe and FUN Labor Day Weekend!

Throwback Thursday- Cuffing Season Begins

Ok I promise I'm gonna stop using pics of Jayonce' for the head of every blog lol, but I just love them! Anyway it's Thursday already (so glad the week is going by semi-fast), so you already know it's time for the throwback of the week. Today is September 1st, which reminds me that summer is coming to a close. What do you think of when summer is over? Of course fall fashion comes first, but it also makes me think of cuffing season. This is the time of the year where everything settles back down and people get boo'd up. So for #throwbackthursday I decided to post a video that will get everyone ready to for love again. See what it is after the break :)
