Baby Steps

There's a pile of unfolded laundry in my apartment that has become a metaphor for my chronic problem avoidance. It started as a small pile, could have easily been folded and put away in the space of 10 minutes, but it kept getting pushed and pushed. "I'll do it later" "OMG but it's so little, … Continue reading Baby Steps

Here Comes Christmas!

I love Christmas. I do. I'm a December baby, and I'm sure that has a lot to do with my love for the most festive time of year. My birthday is exactly two weeks before Christmas, I know, you'd think I would get double presents but NOPE! All my loved ones are cheap so  I … Continue reading Here Comes Christmas!

Motivation is a helluva depressant.

I haven't been motivated to do any blogging recently. I have stayed fabulous and quirky, but I have not found the get-up-and-go required to pen down all my thoughts and the processes behind all the looks I put together. In my defense, I have no defense. I'm just going to be straight with it, I … Continue reading Motivation is a helluva depressant.

On Denim

I feel like there needs to be a song dedicated to the awesomeness of denim and whoever invented it - probably a black mother who was sick of doing the laundry (I seriously think so!) The song needs to be an R&B style song with so many runs, featuring Keith Sweat (whoooo can love you … Continue reading On Denim

On Jumpsuits

I'm grateful for a lot of things in my life - family, love, blonde hazelnut lattes, shoes with the perfect platform to heel ratio,, jumpsuits! The answer to every lazy fashion girl's prayer. The fashion gods' solution to days when you really need to look great, but don't have the energy required to rummage … Continue reading On Jumpsuits

On Date Nights and Slip Dresses

I believe wholeheartedly in the power of a good entrance, in a drop-dead outfit - Yes, I'm that girl. I mean, it makes sense that I'm that girl, I make an effort with what I wear, my payoff is the inevitable "oooh" when I walk into a room. Fun fact: I don't advocate lateness to … Continue reading On Date Nights and Slip Dresses

It's MAY! Summer is around the corner, woohoo! Are you ready for the slay? Because I was born ready. Yusssss! LOL. I have no anecdotes or cute stories to tell about this outfit. The only thing I have to say is that it made me feel wonderful. You can tell too! Look at me revel … Continue reading On Loving Yourself

On Headwraps and Blue Jeans

As a proper Igbo girl, I've always had a thing for a perfectly executed headwrap. Whether it's a simple turban or a complicated double-decker style worn by a full-bosomed Igbo woman, the headwrap or ichafu as we call it, has always been a huge part of Igbo tradition. Any event that calls for dressing up, would see … Continue reading On Headwraps and Blue Jeans

On Shopping While Petite

Full disclosure: This is a rant. You have been warned. I used to love shopping. Walking in and out of stores all day, trying on clothes, falling in love with adorable things, I could do that all day. This was adorable back when my style was super teeny bopper and Forever 21 was my mecca. … Continue reading On Shopping While Petite
