My kind of Charm…

Accessories never get the hype they deserve… Is it because they are too small to notice?, maybe….

The charmed jewelry speaks volumes about an individual. I, love my bracelets chunky….. I love them too much that nothing in the market seems to get me, and so I have resulted into making my own .

Check out below for some ideas on how to have yours customized.

Of Heirloom lovers

Of the statements makers

 

Of the unorthodox thinkers

and of the sentimentalists

The NYFW 2016 runways…

 Fashion Week, when a designer can dream beyond…and as much as most of the clothes that walk down the runway cannot be put down to the streets, it is always amazing to see how far our designer’s minds go.

Check out some of the looks that got to me and I think stealing some of the ideas will be quite rewarding

When in doubt wear red…..Bill Blass

Valentine Cliches 🙂 🙂 🙂

The argument that everyday should be a day to celebrate love doesn’t suffice. I do think that we need a special to put everything else aside and celebrate mankind’s greatest weakness….Love!

…but do you have to have a night out to celebrate love!….and are cliches so bad?

Celebrate Love the best way you know how to. Express your kind of love with your style

Perquisites of being black!

One thing we can’t argue about is the African hair. There are a million things we can subject our hair to without loosing it or looking weird.

That full, kinky, strong hair is nothing but a blessing

If you have Caucasian hair please leave braiding and locks for your darker counterparts

Let’s give nature credit where it’s due

The Palazzo pants!

 There is one rule I however have when it comes to these wide legged pants…tuck in the top or wear a fitting top. It makes it less tacky and so chic but one thing is for sure, these  pants are comfortable and every girl should own at the least….two pairs

Something Striped 1′

Black and White Striped outfits have done their time…or so I hear, but I refuse to decompose mine, plus I don’t like following trends, I love being the odd one out …
