I was recently invited to a party by a friend (actually a lady that I work for who has since become a friend). I really wanted to wear something handmade & even had an idea in my head of a dress with some African print & fringes to make it fun. It was a house party & there would be some 'Swing & Jazz' music, so I thought that 'Fringe' would make a perfect addition to my outfit because of it's movement & flirt-ability (does that word even make sense)! There's this dress that...

I should already be in bed by now but here I am, wide awake as I type this special Blogpost. It's not just any normal day for me because my baby boy is turning 5 years today. Typing it makes it feel even more real & maybe reading this a couple of times will help me get used to the idea that I have a 5 year old son! Going through the photos & videos that I've made of him through the years bring back such beautiful memories which in turn make me feel so grateful to have him in my...

Flowy dresses are an essential for Summer & this year's Summer sure is hot. So I imagined myself in such a dress with my hair flowing in the wind & enjoying the summer breeze with a fruity cocktail in my hand. But there's a change of plot here, there's no hair flowing in the wind because I just did another 'Big Chop'. It still needs some time taking used to but am loving it especially during this crazy hot weather.

The sun is shining, it's getting warmer, am getting darker by the day & have no interest at all in wearing tight-fitted jeans. Mom jeans, boyfriend jeans & straight leg jeans are my thing at the moment, combined with summery tops & accessories & I am ready for this 'early summer'.

There's this stylish blogger that I love & whose style is such an inspiration to me, Sade Akinosho . She never fails to wow with her amazing outfits & when she had on this stylish tulle top, I fell in love with it & was almost ordering it from her online shop for myself (before my bank account put a stop to that line of thought)­čśť. A quick rummage through my 'Fabric stash' & I re-discovered this tulle fabric which was actually a wrong purchase that I had made at Mahler Stoffe...

Hope that I am not too late for the 'Mom-jeans' party but as they say, 'better late than never'. And as I always approach trends with caution, this new discovery was fround on Ebay, for a fraction of it's original price. Let's just say, I am already shopping for another pair of Mom-jeans to add to my collection because it is everything that i need in a pair of jeans, & especially in the warmer months.

Finding a camel coat that was the perfect length that I wanted & which was affordable too turned out to be a major problem. So, I decided to make one myself which turned out quite cute especially when styled with this Gingham top that I made myself too. And now that the sunny & warmer side of Spring is taking it's sweet time to show up, I get a chance to rock my new coat now.

Feminism is defined as a range of political movements, ideologies and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, personal, and social rights for women. This includes seeking to establish equal opportunities for women in education and employment. And often, we think to ourselves how we can support & play a part in this movement which is quite important for us & for the coming generations. What we don't always realise is that somehow...

Nothing says 'Weekend ready' more than a pair of distressed Boyfriend jeans like the one that I shared with you on this previous DIY post & a simple white tshirt. Jeans & a tshirt is one of the most basic combinations which you can syle up or down to fit your mood or whichever occassion that you are dressing up for .I decided to add a Tweed blazer, Faux fur stole, a Chanel inspired bag & some heels to dress it up a bit, something that I woud wear to a lunch, movie date or drinks...

The trench coat is one of Fall's must-have piece of outerwear that is not only a timeless classic but also never really goes out of style. It can be found in many styles & colours & there is definately a coat for everyone's taste. Black, camel & grey are the most common colour choices but why not make a statement with a printed trench coat, like this Khanga one from our latest Collection. And when you find a nice one like this, why not make it work double duty & wear it as a...
