Am sure you guys can tell from the few pictures on my blog that I love prints, patterns and colors. Well! this is just another proof of that fact. I had a night out with friends in Santa Monica and just took a few pictures. Making this dress was a bit annoying because I first had to sew up all the fabric pieces together before I could cut out the dress. The result was worth the stress. Lemme know what you guys think. Do you like colors and prints or do you lean more towards neutrals and muted palettes.

Hey lovies!
I just got these tribal wedges! I had to wear them I paired them with a black dress I made that was inspired by one of my friend's dresses.

This is Paige, one of my roommates. I love her outfit and had to include her in my pictures. I love the vintage feel of her look.

Hey guys!
 This skirt was what we worked on one of our finals in my apparel process 1 class last quarter, I could not just use muslin and waste my skirt so I decided to use ankara and it turned out beautifully.

I know it has been a very long while and I sincerely apologise. I decided I needed a change and I chopped off my hair. lol! How many of you are going through changes in your life? Embrace it! Remember change is the only constant thing!!! love you guys. xoxo.

Fashion trends

Summer has arrived !!!drums roll! And I have been seeing all sorts of trends this summer, some from spring which are here to stay for the summer. Is it me or have prints gone wild this summer. Every where I see some form of prints which I can complain about because I am African and I love prints.
I would be putting the summer trends I absolutely love. Enjoy!


I am so in love with this trend. I know I am not so tall but I rock my wide leg pants with heels. It brings the 70's flair paired with a blouse and high waisted belt to cinch the waist. or a fitted top to balance out the volume of the pants.


For this trend one season it is in, the next it is not. I favor jumpsuits over rompers, I cant give a good reason I just do. I have been seeing them in different colors, and most especially prints.


I am so so in love with crop tops, but lets face it not every one should be seen in them. For people on the conservative side a tank can be worn under it, this look can also be rocked with high waisted wide leg pants.


For this trend I am on the fence, I feel if the shirt wants to be short it should be, It looks good on some people though.

  The accordion pleats can either be in pants, a three quarter skirt or wide leg pants. i love this especially in maxi skirts


And last but not least prints, they are every where, in dresses, shorts, jumpsuits, rompers, tops. You just have to pick which way to wear it and please do not combine everything together. lol! These are the trends that caught my eye, there are so many out there and yes! i did not cover everything. Have a lovely summer everyone! xoxo!
