Embracing My African Roots at the 11th Annual ACANA Festival 🇱🇷✊🏿

It is my lifelong dream to one day visit my father's homeland of Liberia, West Africa. A 'sh*thole country' in the eyes of some, but beloved by many. Until the day comes, I look forward to learning as much as I can about African culture by attending events like the ACANA Festival. For the past… Continue reading Embracing My African Roots at the 11th Annual ACANA Festival 🇱🇷✊🏿

Rompers: The Perfect Short Girl-Friendly Outfit!💁🏾‍💃🏾

If you're a height-challenged girl like myself (5ft), then you know how frustrating it can be to find clothes that fit our petite stature. I can't tell you how many jeans fit perfectly at the hips but have to be tucked under at the ankles or the amount of dress pants that drag at the… Continue reading Rompers: The Perfect Short Girl-Friendly Outfit!💁🏾‍💃🏾

Sailing Through NYC in a Derek Heart Duster ⛵🗽

When it comes to affordable fashion, honey, there ain’t no shame in my game! I take pride in being able to dress well on a dime. The earliest display of this was my eight year old self fishing through my mother’s trash to retrieve the black handbag she had discarded while doing some spring cleaning.… Continue reading Sailing Through NYC in a Derek Heart Duster ⛵🗽

Fashion Fridays: A Few Fashionable Finds

A graphic tee is a great way to make a statement without actually having to utter a single word. It speaks for itself. It expresses your mood, sense of humor, cultural pride, and political views. A graphic tee can also be a bit of an esteem booster like the one I recently purchased. This criss… Continue reading Fashion Fridays: A Few Fashionable Finds

Sole Searching: Spring Footwear 

Anyone who knows me, knows I'm not much of a sneaker girl. I currently own 2 pairs of sneakers (sad, I know), one pair of pink pumas and a floral pair of canvas sneakers. Though I admire those who can rock a pair of sneakers and still look fly, I'm much more of a flats… Continue reading Sole Searching: Spring Footwear

Summer Dress Haul!!!

Confession. This is my first official "haul" so I'm not too sure how many items are required to be considered a haul but anyway... My birthday was last Friday and no I'm not done celebrating! Today, I was shopping for a dress to wear to dinner. I had my heart set on a black, strapless dress from… Continue reading Summer Dress Haul!!!


Summer Faves: Crop Tops & Maxi Dresses

Ok, it's not officially Summer yet but it sure feels like it here in Philly. Temperatures reached the mid 90's two days in a row. Needless to say, you don't want any tight clothing hanging to your body. When it gets like that, a crop top and maxi skirt will do! Maxi skirts are so… Continue reading Summer Faves: Crop Tops & Maxi Dresses
