    OOTO (Outfit of the Occasion)

    If you are looking for an outfit that describes me, this is it. Most times for occasions, we are torn between looking our best for ourselves and looking our best for other people. Hence, everytime I dress up, I remember to include my personality in the outfit. For an event last weekend, I wore this outfit and it’s one of my favorite looks ever. I like the sleeves as they cover my least favorite part (my arms) and give an elongated illusion. The pope collar has always been my favorite , don’t ask me why as I don’t know. The baby doll silhouette is my spirit silhouette. It enhances my…

Contrary to modern opinion, tucking in isn’t for the elderly, neither is it “uncool”.

    Taste of NOLA, the Creole City…

    I have fallen in love three times: Once with a boy, the other time with myself and the last time with a city. NOLA is such a beautiful place, its full of creative surprises and opportunities. It smells and feels like one is in the renaissance era. New Orleans birthed by Mother Africa is adequately mixed with the French and Spanish culture. (whats not to love!) As per the very southern lifestyle, everyone you meet is very warm and they are eager and excited to show you a bit of their culture and also hidden restaurants that have boat filled crab legs (The Original French Market & Bar)that only locals…
