Ankara Collection: Blue Horses

Hey Loves! I am completely obsessed with this dress! The colours and the fitting are everything. I popped in to visit my tailor who was swamped with a mountain of December orders and I spotted this mustard-orange-yellow piece on his material rack. It was the very last 1.5 meters and I just knew I had…… Continue reading Ankara Collection: Blue Horses

Ankara Collection: Two Piece Play Set

Hello loves! It’s official, my love for Ankara print and tailor made clothes (Read: Tailored Paisley) has gone next level.

Ankara Collection: A Dash of Orange

 Hi there! I have strangely developed a keen liking to not only the colour orange but off-shoulder gypsey tops!

“Must you wear that thing?” – The headwrap struggles

“Must you wear that thing?” Yep! That is something I have heard my mom exclaim a number of times in our house as either of my sisters or I leave the house for work. She always has that ‘Oh no! Nobody is going to take her seriously,  she’s going to get a warning at work’…… Continue reading “Must you wear that thing?” – The headwrap struggles

Ankara Collection: Print Perfection

Three blog posts in one day!  Yass I’m on a roll today 😊 This is my ‘I don’t feel like getting dolled up today so the bold print can take all the attention’ outfit.

Ankara Collection: Kaftan Kasual

Hello loves! I’m in a good mood today, hope it stays a while =) So! My dear sister who always buys me the cutest stuff bought me this shift dress.

I cut up my graduation dress!

Hey there! Finding the perfect graduation outfit can be a mission because you want to look exactly how you envisioned yourself walking across that stage to receive that degree you slaved so hard for.

Because #blackgirlmagic

Heeeey! I highly  doubt I'd actually wear this as an outfit on a regular day, it was just for creativity's sake.  I'm not even sure how I wound up with this look,  my mind is always and forever on a trip but hey I love it.  I'd probably wear it to a music festival or… Continue reading Because #blackgirlmagic

That. Wool. Skirt. DAMN!

Hey there! I had no idea this wool skirt was going to be as warm as it is,  like no really- its very warm! Still looking for similar skirts.  I really don't like having to wear jeans or pants for weeks on end when winter hits its peak,  with layers of leggings and stockings (pantihose/tights) … Continue reading That.
