#FashionFridays Skirts, Dresses, Bold Colors

You can never go wrong with a flowing dress or a skirt!  Wear it to work, then transition to an evening of fun.  Just throw one on that fits your shape, no fuss no muss.

Birthday Outings! Such a Gemini...it was cold so I threw on some leggings with my sandals. It works!

Giving thanks for another blessed year! Paired up my African skirt with simple blouse and jacket for work, then take off the jacket for after work birthday shenanigans!

Stopping to smell the tulips. Pair up a dark colored skirt with a bright top, funk it up!

Cheers to my Geminis!  Love the life you live…in a skirt 😄!

Fashion Fridays: #Spring Has Sprung With MSC Treasures #AfricanFashion

Good Morning & Happy Friday. At 6:46 pm, my fashion lovers, it will be officially Spring.  It’s not feeling very Sping outside today on the very first day of the new Season.  But, a girl can still dream of warmer weather.  Possibly tomorrow she will be in her full glory and will bless us with a delightful sunny day.  Till then here is a bit of wardrobe inspiration.   I picked up this dress from MSC Treasures at the Afri-Pop shopping event a few weeks back.  Some background on MSC Treasures:

“With two out of three sisters loving everything about fashion, the youngest sister was left to shop in their closets. The sisters have always had an opportunity to mix something African with something Western, creating unique styles that many wanted. As a result MSC (My Sister’s Closet) was created. The sisters consider themselves curators of all things beautiful from Tanzania and East Africa. They seek to showcase and welcome the hidden talents and treasures of other Tanzanian and East African Designers…Offering quality designs and products made in Tanzania by Tanzanians. They also create employment opportunities for Tanzanians, which not only allows them to earn a living wage, but improves their standards of living. Msc Treasures equals Fashion with an impact.”   Bio MSC Treasures

I always raided my Mom’s closet, so I can relate. But wished I had sisters too, so I am a little jealous. I love this dress because of the bold patterns and the layering. I wore it to an event a couple weeks ago when the temperature hit 60.  I winterized it a bit with a black jacket and black tights, appropriate for work and keeping with the season.  Here I am wearing it with some high fun heels, free from the other winter accoutrements.

Stuntin, ha!

Make your closet work for you (or your sister’s closet), by wearing your clothes in a variety of ways to fit any season.  This way you save your coins.  Spring into action…

Cheers to Spring & Friday!

#Spring Mix Happy St. Patrick’s

My evening Green Edition in honor of St. Patrick’s Day!  Spring is coming and why not throw a little green in the mix, along with turquoise and shades of blue.  I mixed up this look with a green dress, baby blue jacket with great embroidery detailing, turquiose ankle boots, and for fun a black & silver dangling chain!
