When I was younger, I chose to carelessly iron my sunflower dress without clothes on. I have been scarred ever since but it wasn’t until recently that I became comfortable with it… Proof that I’m a thug.



Now that I’m without hair, I’m easily affected by strong winds and cold temperatures. What I love about this Talbots bucket hat is how structured and chic it can make an outfit.


I’m loving how the brim of this hat matches perfectly with the patent leather lining of my coat. Bought this old thang from Burlington Coat Factory for $40.



These leopard heels are from Zara. Its such an old collection but you can probably find them on eBay. This H&M pin-striped cropped top had me at “Hello…” Well actually the $15 price tag did… My pants are from Style & Co. and my clutch is Alfani.

Dress: SheInside // Head Wrap: Kente Cloth // Shoes: Zara // Bag: Kate Spade NY //

Today’s sermon was centered around Purpose and why it’s so important to know and understand yours in life. Should you be interested in a copy, email me at

[Let me just say this really quickly since so many people have been asking me. SheInside runs REALLY weird. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND only purchasing things with reviews. This dress is a medium and the under arms are cut really high.]

So when I initially discovered SheInside, I saw this dress here and went super crazy. I remembered seeing the same dress at Dolce & Gabanna’s Spring ’13 show. Now, I’m not a fan of knock-off anything. I think the saying “Fake it til You Make It” is absurd. However, I may enjoy dupes here and there….and this D&G dupe was just it for me… I mean really, don’t you think it’s so appropriate for my blog name?


This head wrap here is about a yard or 2 of traditional Kente cloth from Ghana. We spoke about Kente here in case you missed it.The shoes I scored these for 13 pounds at London’s Heathrow Airport (I believe this is the cheapest Zara in London…maybe even in Europe.) (I actually almost missed my flight back to the states shopping in Zara. They closed the gate on me and everything. Terrible.) My bag is an old Kate Spade bag and the necklace….well, I have no idea how it appeared in my jewelry box, but it worked.

Be blessed! Enjoy your week ahead!

The look I give when people ask “Aunty why are you overdressed?”IMG_1577 IMG_1580Dress: She Inside  // Blazer: Thrifted // Shoes: Tory Burch (old) // Bag: Forever 21

 Saw this dress on my girlfriend and photographer, Isabella, and I was really loving it. Well she bought me one & surprised me with it so I decided to wear it today with my fave Tory Burch heels- really comfy. I paired the outfit with this bold oversized blazer I scored from the Salvation Army and my Forever 21 bag. Enjoy your weekend!

– Be blessed!
