We make it peplum

Hi People,

I am trying to be organised this week, so far I have done three things on my to-do list. I am so proud of myself because this is the first time ever I have done anything I write down. lol! I sort of just get them done whenever. I hope I can keep it up throughout this week.
I have been seeing peplum all over the place and it is surprising, I din't know it would come back in style so fast because some three years ago that was what we were rocking, Anyhoo! I respect those of  you who follow trends because as far as I am concerned it is a full time job.
This was my attempt at converting one of my tops to a peplum style top with a belt, we make do with what we have. lol! the top, skirt and necklace were all made by yours truly. I hope you like? Enjoy!

I know some of you would be wondering if those are the only pair of shoes I own? lol! I don't know why it goes with everything, or maybe I just like them too much. lol!

Crop Love.

Hey People,

I don't know why I love crop tops so much. I see myself reaching for them when I go shopping or even making them when I sew. Now this top you all have seen before here, I decided to wear it with a skirt this time around and I don't know which look I prefer. lol! Which look do you prefer? Let me know Hope you like! Enjoy!

On another note, this heat has not been funny at all. I have rashes all over my face, I don't know why the rashes can't go to a less obvious part of the body. I cannot wait for summer to be over. I love fall! because that is when I can start layering and the colors are so beautiful then.

Stripes and Flowers

Hey People,

How are you doing? How has your week been going? Mine has been going wonderfully well! I just saw myself in these pictures and realised how dark I had gotten. For the past two weeks the weather has been in the 90's out here in LA. Its like my sunscreen has refused to work, or maybe it is the swimming. I have never been this dark even when I was in Nigeria under the hot sun. It seems the sun that shines here is different. lol!

For this look, I tried the mixing print trend again, (see my first try here) and I loved how it turned out, the top, pants and belt were thrifted, while the necklace and oversize clutch were made by me. I hope you like. Enjoy!

Wrap it Long

Hey People,

How is your week going? I am so sorry I couldn't blog last week, I was under the weather but now I am back and strong. lol! I finished my swimming lessons last Friday and I had fun all through, it was an intense workout, for about a week my whole body hurt, but after that week, I sailed through it like a pro. Yours truly can now swim, not in the deep end though as I cannot tread yet, I am working on that.
This look was something I threw together on Sunday after having a bad hair day. You naturals know how our hair has a mind of its own, that morning it refused to cooperate so I put it in a turban. I made the dress and the clutch by the way. :) I hope you like. Enjoy.

Shout out to Daniel for taking these amazing pictures. They turned out well.
