I Love Cath’s Cheek bones!!! Gorg 🙂
Cathy and I, decided to hang out and catch up after church. It then occurred to me that i had not updated this blog with an OOTD post in a while.
This is more an “informal” OOTD blog post.
For Fall/Winter, I’m kinda into oversize sweaters, sweatshirts, Cardigans.
I’m also into the 90’s fashion at the moment. Love it 🙂
I don’t know who came up with the rule of not wearing white after labor day? but whoever you are….. “sir/ma’am, please, kindly slap yourself over the head”. lol Just kidding.
Seriously, I love wearing white. It just makes any and everything appear smarter and happier.
On a very random note, I can’t seem to stop listening to this song! Have a happy week ahead people 😉
In the name of rose-tinted nostalgia….i dug through all my ish to find this gorgeous Naija dress.
I don’t know what it was, but something in the air vaguely reminded me of Hammatan in Abuja; the warmth and friendliness of the people. *sigh*
I love the Nigerian people. Their human spirit and energy tells a story of faith,hope, and love.
So, here is to Naija, the land of my Ancestors!
Dress: From Nigeria 🙂
As surely as the dawn appears
As surely as the sun rises
As surely as the flowers bloom in season
As surely as the seasons change
Summer to Fall
Winter to Spring
As surely as my heart beats in rhythm to life
I will always believe the sun even when it’s not shining
I will always believe in love even when I don’t feel it
And I believe in God even when He is silent
And I will always believe.
If you don’t know Les Twins, I seriously don’t know what else to say, other than get to know them. They are french twins from Sarcelle France. Been dancing since they were kids and they have modeled for designers like Jean Paul Gaultier etc. What i love about them is their originality, they are different in their approach to dance and fashion. Their signature Afro, backward pants, and amazing dance moves keeps them ahead of the crowd.
Honestly though, forget about everything else and watch them dance!
These kids are simply beasts on the dance floor….what?! I love how they tell stories with their dance…Just amazing! They make me wish i honed in my dancing skill 😦
Their style is pretty much hip-hop influenced and very street in expression.
I am in awe of their talent!
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 🙂
Shorts : DIY
Blazer/Jacket : Thrift Store
Gladiator sandals (day): DSW
Patent Oxford Heels: DSW
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
