These were taken on the first day of fashion week. I was fortunate enough to get a sewing machine for my birthday (thanks parents!) so I really wanted to push myself to learn how to make something for fashion week. The finished product is this ankara skirt I am wearing.

I was so excited to meet one of my absolute favorite fashion bloggers Kristina Bazan of KAYTURE! She was super nice and sweet and even stopped to snap a photo with me!
As a rookie blogger, I love going to fashion week simply for the experience. While getting invited into shows is ultimately the goal, just being in the presence of so many different styles, trends, and down right craziness gives me life! It makes my heart skip a beat. It makes me swoon.
But…..As our NY luck would have it, we were able to make it into the Lincoln Center, which was a treat in and of itself.
After having some fun in the Lincoln Center, we left and took the subway over to Harlem to visit little Africa and look for some African fabric.
A gorgeous Harlem sunset
After shopping we headed back to soho to meet up with my cousin for dinner, drinks, & dessert. Much needed after being out allllllll day.
Some dope street art
A cute little poster in the restaurant.
All in all, it was a
good awesome day!
P.S. I got a lot of questions about my lipstick color, so I thought I’d let you guys know what I was wearing. I used MAC’s Magenta lip liner as a lipstick and lightly went over it with MAC Rebel lipstick.
This is gonna be a really quick post because this week is already starting off cray cray but here are a couple more photos from my cousins wedding.

It was a two day affair with a Nigerian dance party the first night and the white wedding the next day. I took about a hundred kajillion pictures and still haven’t been able to go through them all. But, here’s what I wore on the first day. More pics coming soon!!

June definitely marks the start of graduation and wedding season, and of course graduation parties! One of my sissies had the privilege of graduation from my alma matter, UC Davis over the weekend so there was no doubt I had to go and support.
What I Wore:
I love the color of this dress! The blue is so electric! I also like how the zipper is long in the back.
I also love these black aviators. I have been looking for a “signature pair” of sunglasses and I found these at a random store in the mall.
