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!
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.
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...man, jumpsuits!

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
I love my fashion old. Whether I'm digging furiously through thrift store racks for the coolest finds, or watching an old movie on Turner Classic/Netflix, old fashion is my fashion of choice. There's so much inspiration to be gleaned from all the decades past -except the 2000's, let's never do that again please? In any … Continue reading On Borrowing Fashion
I never thought I'd find a use for this skirt. I bought it on a whim, years and years ago and never quite found something to pair it with. Then I bought this fabulous denim crop top and bam, match made in heaven. I had to casually retrieve the skirt from my sister's wardrobe, seeing … Continue reading Denim on Denim (Updated)
Great accessories are the key to a great outfit, I learned that early. Whenever I find an outfit too blah, I throw on some kickass accessories and it takes the outfit from blah, to bam. Case in point today's outfit. Casual comfy jeans and a tie crop top, pretty basic stuff. However, add some reflective … Continue reading The magic of accessorising
This is my new favourite tunic of all time (that's right, ALL time). I love it because it was crafted from a little over 1.5 yards of fabric. My late aunt happened to have bequeathed my uncle (her brother) this great fabric, and after he'd made his own outfit, he had a tiny bit of … Continue reading Unique Tunic
After a long hiatus, I am back home in Toronto. I'm so grateful for the adventures of the past two years, culminating in one final bungee jump of an adventure - I found my bestfriend and married the heck out of him; so yeah, it's been great. That said, I am jetlagged, I am sleepy … Continue reading Style Recap
