My Summer 17 Must-Haves

It’s almost mid-week and I hope everyone has been blessed with a great week so far and for those who are facing challenges keep yah head up ❤

So, It’s officially summer and I know everybody is excited with every sunshine causing the most beautiful beach days of the year. With the new season upon us comes the urge to want new things. And there is nothing wrong with that but at the same time there is also a need to declutter. Maybe donate a few old pieces of clothing you don’t need anymore to salvation army or re-sell them to Plato’s closet etc. After that we can get started on our wishlist or must-haves haul. Here’s a list of summer essential I need in my life.

Mule Flats

So, think cosy flats. They are absolutely gorgeous and a definite staple for any closet. They also come in handy on days when you don’t have any pedi and want to somewhat cover your toes; these are perfect for that. Very high fashion and stylish and they are perfect for whatever look you are trying to achieve. Definitely certified streetstyle. 

Moroccan Pouf (Ottoman)

Hand woven with precision by the Berber woman in Morocco, these Moroccan Poufs otherwise known as floor pillows are nothing short of absolute beauty. They are so unique and add depth to your home decor…..they are a must have. I neeeeedddd 😩.

Straw Hats

These are a must have. Summer calls for never ending beach days, pool days and vacations; it just wouldn’t be right without the perfect beach hat. 

Straw Totes

These beautiful woven chic basket-like totes are the perfect thing to grab before you head out the door. They are super earthy and gives off an island vibe.

Little Yellow Dress (LYD)

You know how they say every girl should have a LBD…yah sure. However, for the summer eyes are set on a gorgeous yellow dress. Yes….sunshine yellow is a must for summer especially for my highly melanated sisters….yasss! There is nothing like a highly melanated sis in a yellow dress 😍.

Mule

Walking around in stilettos this summer….no bueno! Mules for the win! They are absolutely hands down the it-shoe of summer 17. They are easily a go to; day or night, very accessible and very chic. The chunky low heel makes it so comfortable to walk in. These should be a definite staple for the summer.


What’s on you summer must have list?

Met Gala 2017 Recap

Hey lovelies, hope everyone is having a good day so far.

So, the holy grail of fashion events went down lastnight…..Yes, the Met Gala! It is a major annual fundraising event geared towards benefitting the Metropolitan Museum of Arts Costume Institute. The yearly celebration is themed and celebrities and attendies alike are expected to wear a representation based on their perception of the given theme. 

Co-Chair at Met Gala, Pharellel Williams and Wife- Comme Des Graçons

This year’s theme was Comme des Garçons by designer Rie Kawakubo. The 74 year old Japanese designer is known for designing risktaking, eye cathing make you look twice pieces. 

The attendees at this years ball really dissapointed me especially some of the big stars. The invitation says dress ‘Avant Garde’ and some of the pieces I saw lastnight was a 👎…..like you made no effort you could have just stayed home.
