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 🙂

It’s a Naija Thang!

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 🙂

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 🙂

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

Shirt : Dillard’s

Shorts: Thrift Store (Vintage Levis)

Shoes:Oxfords (Ross)

Bead necklace: Bought from some African lady

Bangle/ bracelet: Can’t remember

Style Crush: Solange Knowles

Natural hair, believe it or not, gives you a swag of your own! For example Solange Knowles, All I knew about her was that she was Beyonce’s Sister, and she danced background for destiny’s child thanks to papa Knowles. I could care less for her solo projects they did not matter to me and looking at how she fared a lot of people did not care either. This girl goes natural and voila! She is a Style Icon, it almost feels weird because she just gets it totally when it comes to fashion…It’s like girl where have you been all these years?

Her style seems very 70’s inspired with the animal/ African prints and  Bohemian Chic…..I Love, love, love her style 🙂

Street Style Fashion: Mall Edition

Fashion is individual and i really believe that! So armed with that info in mind i went off to the mall for some style hunting. It was actually fun and Texans are generally warm and fashionable people, so, it was quite easy to find fashion intepretations that caught my fancy.

This lady was so sweet.What attracted me to what she was wearing was her Riding boots and Teal sweater!  and of course… how pretty is she?Just beautiful

This lady is such a fashionista! Her whole look kinda gave me a Preppy vibe because of the amazing sweater she has on 🙂

This dude is a Total rock star! His hair cut was really nice. However, what caught my attention was his pant and those awesome boots! Also i love his jacket over his brown shirt which was neatly matched with his boots. So cool

This lady right here is a trend queen! Prints and patterns are totally in! I loved how she combined her pattern dress with the sweater and for a pop of color she threw in a red sling bag! HOT 🙂

Last but definitely not the least…I met this ladies on my way out of the mall and i was like “wow” can you say chic? Ok, what drew my attention was first the bag and the Leopard print scarf (Leopard prints are so in). Now look at how the first lady matched her blouse with her bag without being “matchy”? and the second lady matched her sheer blouse with her boots giving us a little fall/ winter color block fashion? Effortlessly Chic!

This is my very first street style features…more coming soon. And to the kind strangers who featured in the pictures, you guys are so fabulously chic 🙂
