I got this dress at a sample sale.  The minute i saw that bright yellow chiffon and lace on the rack I fell in love.  I thought to my self this is something I would dress Lupita Nyongo in if I were here stylist.  It didn’t fit quite like I had imagined so I made a few adjustments by hand and bought some lace trim to belt and tie in a bow.  Yellow is one of my favorite colors along with the pink on my lips.  Yellow is a must have this season so make sure you get you some, it looks good on you.

I paired this polka dot chiffon top top with these daisy dukes and cork bottom heels and a straw hat.  I’m actually wearing the top backwards.  I though the yellow bow tie would look really cute in the front.  This was a fun look.


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 😉


Buns & Butterflies


I’m loving my butterfly earrings & Ankara clutch that I made with my new mustard dress.  My brass choker go great with my vintage brass & copper elephant broach on clutch.  I’ve bee practicing my bun lately…I’m getting better so stay tuned :-) I tried white eyeliner for the first time…it definitely gave me a different look I have to get use too.  what do you think? Earrings and clutch are available in the online store.  Ring is sold out.


Spring Turban


I bought these shoes over 7 years ago and I’ve only wore them a few times. I love the wood heel and the printed straps.  I thought they would go perfect with this turban wrap. a this white dress.  This dress is so comfy and it has pockets on the side.  I’m a sucker for anything with pockets on the side.  I guess you would call this a clean bohemian look.




I was never into jumpsuits.  I never saw a style that I liked or thought would look cute on me.  So when I saw this jumper I almost passed it up, but the sales guy at the sample sale was like “you have to get this” I was like “you think so, what are these things on the side that look like inside out pockets but aren’t pockets”. So I bought it anyway and when I got home and tried it on, it was the most adorable jumper I ever saw and it fit perfectly. Great find :-)


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?


Walking the Dog

It was chilly in the neighborhood today so I pulled out the Afro puff ski hat and a purple little wool jacket I bought from a second hand store.  You can find these Afro Puff hats in my online store.  Just put your hair up and let your hair go wild out the top…lol.  I love the color and it pairs perfectly with my loose fitting skinny jeans and pink heels.  Of course I have on a white tank because I can always style the hell out of a wife beater.  These can be a style saver and best friend :-) I was trying a new bright pink lipstick too…I think I like it.
