On a lazy day, we rock our ish twice!

I transition  Day time clothes into Night time; either by adding a jacket, an accessory or Heels to give it a more “Night-ish” glam

Today was my lazy day, I pretty much chilled at Barnes and Nobles reading and  lusting after other books I wished I was reading…yeah…I have a problem, I know. Seriously, books and buildings that contain books make me happy 🙂

*Dancing to “Girls just wanna have fun”*

This outfit revolved around my pretty asymmetrical/ high-low top. The top is pretty much casual…Its a lace top with pretty tribal designs on it.  I wore it all day with my DIY cutoff shorts. I was going out at night, so, I threw on a Blazer and my trusty Patent Oxford heels to give it a little “dressy” appeal. This is how I rock my ish twice 🙂

Style Crush: Nneka Egbuna

Nneka, is a Nigerian/German Musician, born and raised in Nigeria. I stumbled on her music in 2008….Initially, She gave me a Lauryn Hill vibe because of the sheer genius and truthfulness of her lyrics…. I later saw that she was totally different from Lauryn but still epic all the same.

Palladium 04.04.09

I love her  music and message! I find her style very Organic, grunge, African and original. Her music makes you see the world in a different light. I respect her and how original she is. Honestly, If i met her, I would rather we  talked about her World view on spirituality, Politics and Nigeria ,not fashion. She performs with soul-stirring rawness that produces goose bumps…she is that deep and soulful. She rocks!!!!!

Cap Toe

Louis Vuitton pre Fall 2012 “Merry Go round” Shoe collection is currently the rave. At least among-st the rich or those who generally save their lunch money to splurge on designer shoes. Now, for those of us who just want dupes, or Look alike, ASOS and Zara have similar cap toe heels for amazingly less! I love it 🙂

Everyone has been talking about the movie “Hunger Games“. I decided to go see it after much hype;Went with a couple of friends. I didn’t know what to wear so I wore all black and took my Afro head along. Anytime I wear my hair out people stare at me either in disbelieve or in mild irritation lol… I have gotten quite used to it now. By the way, the above pic is my hair in its semi shrunken state. As for the movie, I really don’t know how i feel about it. I fell asleep half way through it :/ .  Happy Easter Sunday in advance to those who observe it
