There is nothing more beautiful than an African woman rocking her beautiful fro. It is undeniable that a movement has started, where woman celebrate their natural hair…and I love it!

I recently shot with a ‘fro’ and it took me 6 hours to get my hair to at least look like some sort of ‘jerry/springy’ curl. Sadly, my natural hair is ‘wavy’ and dry, rather than ‘springy’ and fabulous…… oi! In an ideal world, I would rock this look all day, evrrrrrrry day, but let’s call a spade, a spade, and just work the best with what you have!Heeeheeehee.

Pleather dresses are always on trend, and a shift is a fab way to still add sophistication to what may seem a ‘very tough’ look.

Fringe is back, baby! So why not a cute cropped jacket with boyfroend jeans, and the imfamous ‘leopard’ heel?

That biker and statement – skirt – and – T combo! Yes – you need a biker. Its aseasonal and you can wear it with anything!!

If you don’t know it yet hun, the pleated skirt is here for life!

Sheers – Mesh, chiffons, eyelet mesh, anything ‘see-through’ is spot on trend this season. So instead of rocking it with a flat, I opted for a sneaker! It’s not only ubercool, its comfy darling!

Have fun experimenting with looks. Remember – dress for your shape, and use elements of fashion to complete your looks. Style always preceeds fashion!

I love mixing up prints! Especially if it the same family/hues. For example monochromes (Black and whites)

These Images show monochromes mixed with a slight pop of colour! Great for work!

I opted for a more laid black monochrome mix, with a white 60’s frame…

.. a black and white palm print off shoulder, teamed with a grid print skirt…

…a plain black sling back with chrome handles..

…and a metallic flat!

There is no need to restrict or contrive your look. Play around with prints.

As long as they are similar hues….mash it up! 🙂

I am a sucker for sneakers and denims. At times you just want to kick of the heels and rest your feet.

Peak caps in cute prints are fun, and an easy way to camouflage
