Ombre Tights

Winter is just round the corner. Ombre Tights are a good idea.

Maki Oh Yes

I'm busy looking at this Nigerian designer's work. And I'm loving what I am seeing, her recent collection at the Arise Fashion Week was so impressive. I think I'm a fan now. Yeah, I am a fan.

New York City

I have been missing from the blogosphere. I know. Currently in New York - yes, you heard me! I'm trying my best to take as many amateur photos as possible. But honestly, I spend most of my time gaping at buildings, outlets, retail stores and goodlucking people rather than taking actual photos. I'm having  a great time, slightly sick, but..who cares? I'm in New York and that is freaking amazing.

Emily Blunt (from Devil Wears Prada) in “True Lies” for Time Style & Design Spring 2012. She is actually really stylish, I underestimate her, I should stop doing that.
I havent been posting - I know - lets just say I've been drinking copious amounts of Red Bull, trying my best to see myself on the otherside of all this work.
If you're the praying kind, your prayers would be much appreciated at present.

The Naked and Famous

"We're only young and naive still
We require certain skills
The mood it changes like the wind
Hard to control when it begins

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah"
- The Naked and Famous (Young Blood)

Love the song, love the video, love the lyrics. Thank God for this kind of music.

Food and Nostalgia

I went to a special lunch during the holidays with a few of my friends, some I hadn't seen in six or seven months and others I hadn't seen in six or seven years! Needless to say, we enjoyed ourselves, the sushi and the inevitable air of nostaglia.

These prettyful pictures were taken by my dear friend Chandra of pinkpeachpurse and edited by yours truly.

Young Blood

I trust everyone has had a good weekend, mine was busy and tiring so it was nice to come across a great editorial with tall, dark, handsome men dressed in dapper clothing. Men and clothes aren't just good to have, they're good to look at too.

Monday Cool: Speaking Pixels

"Whether we know it or not, everything we do and say, and even what we choose to wear, express something about who we are...As creatives and committed believers in all things both beautiful and inspirational, we've created Speaking Pixels to communicate concpets and ideas that speak to the message of individual experience. Our vision is to reorient people towards beauty, illuminate goodness in the midst of a world that at times seems broken, and honor the wonder that exists in day to day life" - Speaking Pixels Manifesto

This is a quote from the manifesto posted on their website, I decided to quote a large part of it because I honestly can't find the proper words to describe how I feel about this plethora of creative coolness. It literally blows my mind. I no longer need to seek inspiration. I have found it.

Love: Rita Ora

She's really stylish, she's really talented, she's signed to Roc Nation. I love her now. That is all.

If you don't believe me about her level of talent, check out this clip. I didn't know "Hey Ya" was written so beautifully until she sang it.

Bad Girls Do It Well

I'm sure good girls do it well too, but in this video, m.i.a puts up one helluva argument.

Last Saturday.

Last week Saturday my residence had a New York Fashion Week themed party/get-together, needless to say, I pounced at the opportunity to wear something nice-ish.
Meat was 'braaied', punch was had, The Motto was played, I had fun.
