This past weekend I was able to attend Africa Fashion Week LA (AFWLA). It was a really dope 3 day event showcasing emerging African designers in the area. Unfortunately I was only able to attend one day but I had a great time nonetheless. Check out some pics from the event.
btw, if you haven’t noticed I’m trying somethin a lil diff with my hair…color! Let me know what you guys think!

Back when I was in school, I was part of the Nigerian Student Association and the Nigerian Student Dance Group and we started an annual Nigerian Culture Show. It’s always fun and interesting to see how your legacy has played out so my sissy and I went to watch and support.
Wore this fit to celebrate the Nigerian in me. =]

** A note about these shorts- they were originally dark jeans and took FOREVER to get all the way white. I left them in bleach overnight for two nights in a row, and while they are super cute, the bleach did compromise the quality of the shorts…just a word of caution.
I think it is still worth it though, I just have to step into them carefully, lol!
Vegas has A LOOOOOT of tomfoolery goin on there!
Last call for PARTY TIME!!

I was fortunate enough to be featured on the front page of essence.com a couple weeks ago and I was ecstatic!! This is my first time being publicly recognized for my fashion sense, so i was kinda (ok really) excited!
The picture was taken at New York Fashion Week. I was wearing one of my mother’s old Nigerian vests, large readers with my Steve Madden Boots. New York Fashion Week was one of the best experiences of my entire life and I was only there for two days! Just feelin the energy of those around me put a smile on my face.
