Jozi Maboneng stands for a celebration of South African fashion. This features designs from local South African designers: Loin Cloth and Ashes, Taibo Bacar, Ituen Basi, Gavin Rajah, Deola Sagoe, Marianne Fassler and more.  Seeing these images makes me even more eager to explore the beautiful continent of Africa— currently planning a trip to Ghana for 2014 and I cannot wait!  What do you love the most about this spread?  Do tell!

Celeb Spotting—Kelis


Hola peeps!  Busy week and there is no stopping us now!  Browsing the web I came across these pics of Kelis with her fab curly fro and her cutie pie son Knight.  I’ve been a huge fan since her “Bossy” days and I must say she is running a close race with my girl Tracee Ellis Ross in the best curlz category.  However if you have been longing to hear more of her music don’t fret because she released single “Copy Cat” earlier this month and album #6 will drop in 2013.  So much to look forward to…yippy!

Fall Fresh—1 Outfit + 4 Pairs of Sneakers


Hola!  I hope all is good with ya.  The weather is starting to change just a tad bit and all I can think about is fall clothes.  My current lust is wedge sneakers—funny because I am so not a sneakerhead at all.   Yet here I’ve styled a perfect look for fall—colored denim, chunky knit sweater and a timeless Chanel bag. This ‘fit can be paired with any of these sneaks. Take a peek and let me know what you think. Enjoy!

Friday Sass—Brit Wit It w/Alexa Chung


Hola peeps!  We made it to Friday! In tribute to the Olympic games being held in London I decided to feature one of the Brit’s most fashionable chicas—Alexa Chung.  I have always admired her quirky fashion sense.  This set is perfect for frolicking around the U.K. or any city in the world.  Who doesn’t love denim cutoffs, chunky jewels, slouchy tees all paired with knock-out platforms.  Sass all around—POW!  Enjoy your weekend!
