Nolcha Fashion Week—Maita Marimo S/S14

Hola!  Nolcha Fashion Week was just as fab as ever and one of my favorite designers was Maita Marimo.  The 29 year old hails from Zimbabwe  where she attended school for interior design but eventually became a self-taught fashion designer.  In 2012 she was voted Zimbabwe’s Fashion Week Designer of the year.  Maita describes her signature style as “Classic chic with a modern edge”.  Her collection is most definitely a representation of that with intricate details like lace, ruffles and pleats.  Take a peek and enjoy!

Fashion Insider on the Move—Straight To The League

Hola peeps!  A few weeks ago I attended Nolcha Fashion Lounge which was held a few days after Nolcha Fashion Week.  There I met the owner and team of the clothing company- Straight to The League.  I think their About Us section explains what they do best: “Straight To The League is a clothing company… that’s NOT about obligations, titles or regrets! We are movement that promotes greatness on all levels and the mentality and  mindset that says; I can accomplish anything!”

What caught my attention where the super soft organic cotton tees.  The team informed me that a portion of the proceeds from that collection is donated to a charity.  Doesn’t that just warm your heart?  Well it definitely warms mine!  Take a peek at some of them below.

Also ladies no need to fret because we can shop the brand too; they have League Lady especially for us.  I am really happy to see a line that is socially aware with cool designs and great price points.  Straight to the League is definitely a Fashion Insider on the Move—>Congrats!

2011 Reflections

Hola peeps!  Well here we are the last day of 2011 and it feels so good!  Time to give thanks for all the past blessings and looking forward to the ones to come.  This year has been a whirlwind for SNC but I am so happy that you guys have stuck with me through it all.  I was looking back at pics that I took this year and there are tons that didn’t make it to the blog and/or the facebook fan page *btw if you aren’t a fb fan by now then you are really missing out*.  So I thought why not share them now—a perfect way for you to see some behind the scenes shots at shows, a peek into my personal style and the hair ‘dos that I rock on occassion.

I hope that you enjoy my reflecting back and urge you to share some of your moments as well.  What worked or didn’t work for you this year—fashion or hair?  Don’t be shy the only way that we can learn from one another is to share the experience.  Here’s to a great 2012 year head!!
