Vintage Paisley

newyearzrq DSC_0206 DSC_0227 I bought this Vintage Paisley skirt at a second hand store. I love the colors, the length and how it flow with the opening slit on the side.  I decided to pair it with a jean shirt and a tank and they wen perfect together for a nice outing or a day of shopping.


Afrolicious Tribe


This is one of my favorite outfits I styled for the Afrolicious Hair Affair. I found these tribal pants and top in the fashion district of downtown LA. I had no idea what I was going to wear so I bought this pretty yellow heart shaped tube dress, a colorful tunic to choose from a couple of days before then at the last minute I put on these pants and realized that the top went perfect with the pants and put on this H&M blazer.  I had always planned to wear the mini top hat.  You can purchase these in the Afro City store. Oh and the handsome little pooch is my neighbors :-)


Kente Spikes

I love this outfit.  I first wore it to the 1st annual Afrolicious Hair Affair I put on in the Hollywood Hills. I love the Ankara Peplum I layered over this stretchy skirt.  The skirt looks like jean but its not.  I thought it went so well with my Ankara jean earring with spikes that I made.  You can find these earrings in my online store.  Experimenting with my hair, I put it in a Fro Hawk.  I’m loving my make up in this pic.  the blue liner is killer 😉


Ankara Gypsy


I love these pants. I bought them at the Salvation Army.  I wasn’t sure how I would style them and one friend wasn’t to sure if they would be cute at all, but I knew I could make them look funky. She calls them Hammer pants.  I call the Gypsy, Genie or Harem pants and the outfit came out just like I imagined they would. Paired with my leopard heels, wife beater and chocolate turtle neck sweater shawl.  I guess that’s how you would describe it.  Talk about comfort & style.  I love it.  what do you think.  would you wear these?
