Fly High

"...Because eagles fly alone prepare to pay the price of your coming greatness." - Pastor EA Adeboye

My seamstress made this for me for a wedding I attended early this summer, so I am late posting these pictures. Of course, this is one of my favorites! It's actually a tube top and skirt (which has six panels using three different ankara material). She suggested making it like this because of the volume in the skirt. And let me note: this is a very heavy skirt. I had a little tossing it back to walk, but not so much having to drag it along. (= 
I like it better as separates because I can use them with different items, which I have.

 






And yes, this is the picture in my logo.

The Hipster

"There is no definition of beauty, but when you can see someone's spirit coming through, something unexplainable, that's beautiful..." -Liv Tyler

The Hipster is at it again looking as beautiful as ever. Here she is in a white button down and an Ankara A-line skirt at a traditional Nigerian wedding. Check out her blog to see how she hits the streets daily. 





Good day, all. xo

O Mercy, Mercy Me

The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the

Fro Power

“Everyone notices everyone else's problems but never pay attention to their own. People don't know anything about themselves because they're worried about everybody else." 

I know this is site is not about hair, BUT this hair just gives me life. Her fro is so on point, and just adds oomph to her statuesque frame. Good day, all. xo

Just Look Over Your Shoulder, Honey

"You have to come to your closed doors before you get to open doors." -Joel Osteen

I hope you all had an joyous Labor Day, and took a break from all of your hard work.

Abby is here in a long V-neck dress with a pink studded belt. I think her gele makes her dress really pop and pulls her outfit together.
