I am Jamenda McCoy, a juggling wife and mom of two, recovering employment lawyer and founder of Bellē Up Maternity, a boutique serving sophisticated moms and moms-to-be on Chicago's South Side since 2009.
I count on Byron Lars dresses, Oscillation by Lancome mascara, Michael Kors accessories and shoes, shoes, shoes, indulge from time-to-time with a hot dog (don't judge) and slow down with a game of Bedazzled on my iPad or a little good old-fashioned DVR time (Scandal and Law & Order SVU are my faves).
I'm an all-around anomaly. I'm high-fashion (not to be confused with high-maintenance), but as a former Division I college athlete, I'm a tomboy at heart. I'm Type-A and an Artsy Flower Child. I'm country pop and hip hop. Part nerd, part slacker. At times I'm politically correct and, at many others, brutally honest.

This column is intended to be an open window into the joys and trials associated with all that I am: a Black woman, wife, mom, fashionista and business owner.
