Haute Look: Tribal Nails

It was time for a fill on Saturday, & I really love how my nails came out! Me & my fav nail tech kinda freestyled to create this African glamazon look.

'Cause I'm Foxxy Cleopatra, and I'm a WHOLE LOTTA WOMAN

Frida Gustavsson x Vogue US November 2010

Photographer Patrick Demarchelier did a spectacular job of portraying all-Americanism with a vintage twist, in Anything Goes.
Frida Gustavsson joins Eddie Redmayne in this Mary Poppins meets high class American socialites shoot.
Grace Coddington elegantly styles Frida in simple & chic pieces by Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana, Yves Saint Laurent, among others.

Overall, I love it. It makes me want to watch Chitty Chitty Bang Bang lol

Dwele - Watch Me

Dwele is such a dope artist, & he really showed off his talents when he made this beat/song out of boredom. Give 'Watch Me' a listen, and the rest of his album W.ants W.orld W.omen in stores now.

Haute Look: Turbans

Due to my hair being a HAUTE MESS, I have to be a little innovative until I get it done this weekend. So I decided to rock a turban, which I've been looking forward to doing this for the longest! Particularly since I saw Carrie's incredibly fab turban in Sex & The City 2.

I topped it off with ruby lips, a vintage blazer and big glasses to complete the look.

Here are some flicks of my bad hair day turned turban lol

Featured in the last pic is my friend NJ, she also has a fashion/lifestyle blog called
Pretti Young Thing, its new but it definitely deserves a good look!

Look for Less - YSL, Meet Forever21

I'm completely in love with these YSL suede pumps, they're edgy & trendy yet simple & chic. However they're $895

So if you're tryna save some of your pretty pennies for a more budget friendly look, Forever 21 has these Suedette Wrap Heels for a lovely $25, cant beat that!

Let me know what you think about this steal! :)

Malcolm X Inspired Style

In my Sixties History class we've been learning about the Civil Rights movement, and I couldn't help but take note what a fly papa Malcolm X was.
I found some replica Malcolm X Horn Rim glasses on ebay for cheap cheap, I'll update you guys when the come in :)

"I think I’m Malcolm X, Martin Luther
Add a King, add a Junior"

Willow Smith - Whip My Hair Video

Bravo! As if the song was catchy enough the video just boosted it up a level. The concept is dope -- not too young, not too old, just right. And her smile at the end is absolutely adorable

Thumbs up for Willow.
I whip my hurrrr back & forth!

World, Meet the Sexiest Shoe of the Year?

Recently Saks & Footwear News joined forces to pay homage to the stiletto gawds, such as Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Manolo, and Giuseppi Zannotti, to name a few. They crowned the 'Sexiest Shoe of the Year' Christian Louboutin's Maralena crystal-covered mesh peep-toe pumps. Now these are undeniably FIERCE, but SEXIEST shoe of the YEAR? I'd have to differ. There are definitely shoes out there more fitting to bear such a crown.
What do you think? Queen Bee, or just a wannabe?

Chic & Cheap Vol I

I finally popped my thrifting cherry today!! lol, and it was about about time !! My cart was full and my heart was happy -- I can't to go back.

Wardrobe, Meet Thrifting:

THIS is my find of the day, I have fallen in LOVE with this jacket! I love its 80s/ethnic feel and the fit is great

Close up of the pattern

I was actually looking for a school bag for my books but I'm glad I ran into these cute little purses. The first is a sequin beige clutch with a long strap, perfect to glam up an outfit, and the other is a patched brown satchel, for a nice vintage look.
both $2

This vest is so 80s, and loud, and FAB! I tried it on with a pattern top & i felt like the SHXT! lol I'm sure I wont be able to help but to wear this soon.

I like this grandpa-esque blazer, its a bit oversized but the fit is nice and it looks good that way

This coral blazer looks amazing on my brown skin and the shoulder pads are BOMB! It's also oversized but I'll make it work, by any means necessary lol

I'm compiling a list of stores I want to visit, soon thrift shops across America will know my face! (maybe not, but it sounds good ~_^)

I know you like my style, you like how I break it down

MSU Radio

So this Friday I got a chance to speak on MSU radio with my friend NJ, and it was a lot of fun! The show,'The Cool', hosted by DJ Ace Boogie, had a real chill vibe and great selection of authentic hip hop (not the typical washed up radio). This week we talked about men vs women, so you KNOW that convo could've went on forever lol. Hopefully I'll be back often to speak my mind 'cause there's always a lot on it! ;)

You can tune in online @ wmscradio.com every Friday from 4-7pm! (click the tape to listen)
Have any topic ideas for next week? Let me know :)

Twitter, Meet Kanye

@KanyeWest is arguably the most entertaining person to ever create a twitter account. He's arrogant, random, self conscious, comical, and infectiously amusing. I don't think I could ever unfollow him, because 90% of the time his tweets actually make me laugh out loud -- like stfu ye! haha. Here are some of my favorite of his outrageous tweets:

"I think Twitter was designed specifically with me in mind just my humble opinion
hahhahaaahaaa humble hahahahahaaaa"

"Tell everyone at the label only use Gothic or Helvetic fonts for email blasts unless I otherwise approve"

"Is it wrong to wear a CHANEL dinner jacket with a T shirt to the airport if it's still breakfast time
out here in Singapore uugh TOO LATE!"

"I ordered the salmon medium instead of medium well I didn't want to ruin the magic"

"120,000!! (followers) This is way to much I need a moment!!!
Can I quote myself or is that like talking in 3rd person which Kanye loves to do LOL"

"She said she can jog in those heels ... I said, those heels must be Lanvin!"

"Being nice is the shit ... working on being a doper person #ITSAPROCESS"

We all self conscious I'm just the first to admit it

& It Came to Me, Like an Epiphany ...

Random epiphany I had in the car on the way home from church:
I really cant entertain these assholes anymore. Like at ALL. It's disrespecting my dad honestly. He treats me like a princess and loves me TOO much! So how can I parade around with these fools and settle for their bs, like I don't know or haven't been shown any better? Ya, doesn't make sense. Its backwards. Life only moves forward ...

love, my beautiful mind

Happy 50th Bday Nigeria!

On Saturday East Coast Nigerians celebrated our wonderful country's 50th Bday in NYC. The celebration included a parade, but of course running on cp time I missed that, however I was able to make the festival on 47th street. Overall it was fun, I love being able to celebrate my culture with my fellow Naijas. Being surrounded by Nigerian food, music, artists, tradition, and people gave me LIFE. What really inspired me was the African fashion. I CANNOT get enough of African prints and material incorporated into fashion forward pieces! I was able to network with some African designers, so look out for feature posts soon ;)

my friend made her shorts; how dope!

my beautiful African queens :)

omo you gon make me fall in love
