Thrift Find: Oriental Jacket

My most recent thrifting treasure is this oriental inspired jacket. It's reversible which gives it huge brownie points for versatility. I know it's summertime & the sun is blazing but I don't care lol, I might wear it on a cooler day when it rains.

This cute little number was only $5 :]

The Weeknd - The Birds [Part 1]

Love this.
I'd love to go to a concert featuring The Weeknd, Frank Ocean, & Jhene Aiko.

D'Banj Joins G.O.O.D. Music

& It all started with a tweet ...

Congrats to the Nigerian superstar D'Banj for signing with Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music ! When I first saw this tweet I was ecstatic at the prospect of a collab between the two. Little did I know that they would soon join forces on a much larger scale. Wednesday, June 8th D'Banj confirmed through his twitter account that he had joined the G.O.O.D. music roster; what a fitting birthday gift for both him & Mr. West.

I love Kanye, I love Nigerian music, this is beyond amazing to me. I'm so excited about how this will hopefully bring Nigerian/African music to the main stream market. I can not WAIT to here what D'banj & Kanye have in store.

Love all the young, ambitious royalty of the world :]

Haute Buy: Rania Dress by Cheap Monday

I came across this sheer Rania dress by Cheap Monday and instantly fell in love with its versatility. It can be worn as a throw over to the beach with just your swim suit underneath, or with a tank, your favorite jeans, & some cute heels for a casual night out. Or something more my style - a sassy bandeau top, with a tight skirt & wedges.
Raina Dress
Purchase it at Revolve Clothing for $85.

The Heart Gallery Returns June 26

Hello Hauties!

I am proud to inform you that Jersey's own The Heart Gallery will be returning Sunday, June 26th. The Heart Gallery is an exhibition of cultural art, including music, fashion, live art, and poetry. I really missed this event during their hiatus, because it's not often you find culturally savvy events in New Jersey.

If you're in the Tri State area I would definitely suggest you come out!

For serious inquiries on vendors & performers email theheartgallery@gmail.com
