Dear Elsa Schiaparelli:
thank you for introducing fashion to surrealism. I really hope the new team at your house does justice to its name. Also, you really shouldn’t have smoked, but I guess it’s a little late to tell you that…

stylitics: The ball has dropped and the New Year has rolled in (time to put away the champagne), and now, if you’re one of the 45% of Americans who regularly makes New Year’s Resolutions, you’ve probably resolved to lose weight, get organized, spend more time with family, make smarter purchasing decisions,… truly speaking, I posted this for myself. :)
Nigeria week 1
Since we left the house, I haven’t had a single chance to blog. Quiet and a steady internet connection is a difficult combo to come by in Lagos with my uncles, aunt, and kid cousins. In Ilorin with just the grandparents and their wifi, it’s been a little easier. It’s been just over a week, and so far it’s been great. I’m chilling hard and eating SO much. My jeans are...
I have decided
For the past few years I have relaxed into the dangerously comfortable pattern of throwing on the first decent set of clothes that I can find in the morning that don’t completely repel each other. I’m the chick who actually looks better on laundry day, because the jeans and tees are out of stock and all that’s left is a handful of dressy blouses that make everyone feel obliged...

This creative fashionista subscribes to the “waste not, want not” mantra, so rather than throw away that old pair of jeans, she’s going to show us how to transform an old pant…
Squeal! - Mr.Price opens up online store
I am happy today. I am also sad. Ask me why. Seriously, ask me. I am happy because Mr. Price opened up their online store on the 30th of July. I am happy because they timed it well, opening up their store just when SA is finally starting to catch on to the whole online shopping thing. I am happy because over the past few years, they have really raised the quality of their...
(via Neil Harbisson: I listen to color)
So to recap my life right now, I am now a full time second year fashion design student at CPUT with a standing copy editing obligation to All Things Fashion Africa, a part-time social media and design research assistant for matchmybag.com, a blogger, a sales assistant at Merchants, a worship team member and a youth leader at my church, and soon (hopefully), a campus ambassador for Stylitics.com...
Merchants on Long
So my part-time work for Match My Bag.com has been going really well; I’ve slacked a little lately (bad intern!), but I have a plan in place to help me pick up the pace again. And now *drumroll please*: I am a sales assistant! [Cue the trumpets. :)] I have bagged the most hated valuable position in the fashion industry (in terms of experience and knowledge, that is), and I’ve done it...
