Life Imitating Art

So I decided to give life to the last ensemble I created on polyvore (click HERE to view). Too bad I don't have the red 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli bag that I'm currently crushing on. Having the Rebecca Minkoff Solange nude wedges would have helped a great deal too.  Well I improvised with what I had and pulled the look together.

Knotted Denim shirt

I wore an embellished pink silk shell top and tied my trusty denim shirt in a knot. To keep my skirt from falling off I accessorized with a studded leather double wrap waist belt.

I guess everyone knows by now that I'm a quite partial to maxis.  Left to me, I'd wear them everyday.  I love this lovely pleated one from Next and what's so cool about it is the slit it has in front and the way it flutters around when there a slight wind.

I decided to treat myself to a post-birthday present and made up my mind to get the baddest weave I could get my mitts on and a few pings later, my girl Angela told me she was going to hook me with some neck-turning stuff and boy did she!

Now before I get lynched by the pro-natural hair team I just want to say this, I love my natural hair and I carry it for as long as I can, matter of fact I rock my own hair more than I do weaves so no one should take shots at me for not being proud of what God gave me!

I actually gasped when I saw this wonder.  There was no way I could leave without it on my head.

Met the lovely and beautiful Danielle at the salon, she had this lovely heavily beaded ankara blouse with just beads at the back (I'll ask her for a pic showing the back of the blouse and I'll post it).  She offered to take most of the pictures you see on this post.  I liked how she paired her top with a dark wash pair of skinnies and louboutins...very chic.

I also ran into gorgeous Ono Bello and we chatted about blogging, weird African food and I noticed she was reading Fifty Shades of Grey (way to go girl!).

For information on where to get this lovely hair just shoot me an email ( and I'll hook you up cos that's what girls do for each other!
