Throwback :: African Infused

Nigeria Traditional attire and jadore-fashion.com

While viewing my photo archives, I realized that I never shared these pictures with you. The pictures were taken in December 2011 while on vacation in Lagos, Nigeria. My outfit as worn in the post was unplanned. I was wearing a self-designed African Ankara print skirt with slits (not shown) that tore after I stumbled and fell. We were visiting some family members and it was dark in the house due to a power outage. I was carrying my hubby’s one year old niece while walking into the house and unknown to me, there was a small chair in the walkway. I tripped on the chair and fell. While falling, all I could think about was the little girl in my arms and luckily for us, she was unharmed. I was bruised and the slit on my knee length skirt tore. Thank goodness for a good ol African wrapper / fabric which I wrapped around my waist as my new skirt. :)

Afternoon Cravings: JIMMY CHOO



As the holiday season approaches, I keep longing for a pair of silver or gold shoes. I fell in love with this Jimmy Choo Tempest Sequin Pump (here) especially, with the strappy details. I can definitely wear it with a cocktail dress or with a pair of jeans. The good news is that it is current on sale at Saks.

What do you think? Do you have any current shoe cravings?

Stripes & Floral

PA0_9271-2223488856-OHi everyone! It was a long, relaxing and celebratory thanksgiving weekend which I spent with my hubby, parents and friends. I had a movie day with my girlfriends also. Though we planned on going to the movies, we ended up staying at my place eating and watching 'Grimm' on Demand.

The weather was great over the weekend and I remembered my Asos mirror skirt which has been in my closet since the summer...love the floral mirror details. For a casual and fun look, I chose a simple striped top and completed the look with beige pumps.

Thankful for You


Today is Thanksgiving Day in America. I am happy to have the day off...whoop! whoop! Lots of food to eat today. I am definitely not a turkey or stuffing girl, but I will be over at mom's for great Nigeria delicacies like Egusi soup, okra soup and rice before hanging with friends for more food.

First, I want to use this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to YOU...yes YOU reading this. I am so grateful for the amazing love and support I receive everyday from you and taking the time to comment on each post. Also, I am thankful for the special emails and encouraging ones I receive daily which is my beyond imagination. When I receive emails on how much I inspire you or you admire me and my work, it brings tears to my eyes. Words can't express how grateful I am for your support. For all you have done and will continue to do, I say THANK YOU.


THANK YOU so much.

Love you all from the bottom of my heart.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

TJ Maxx: Fall Finds

IMG_8098

A couple of days ago, I received a gift card from T.J Maxx to SCORE my perfect fall finds. I am a big fan of mixing affordable pieces and what better place to shop at an affordable price other than T.J Maxx. After church on Sunday, I went to the closest T.J Maxx store and below are the amazing pieces that I scored and how I styled them.

The weather was great last weekend and I visited the State Park with my hubby. It was great day to dig up the faux fur vest and riding boots. We took a walk through the woods and the sound of the flowing stream was serene. I enjoyed the beauty of nature


Have a wonderful weekend!

Monochrome :: Burgundy

PAO_0357-2166545524-O
Hi beautiful people! This week brings us closer to Thanksgiving Holiday. How time flies, huh? Christmas is barely two months away--one of my favorite holidays. Like most holidays, nothing reminds me more of festive moments than warm colors and jewel tones. As the fall leaves change colors, I get excited. This makes me incorporate burgundy or mustard colors into my outfits like in my previous post here. I think I am officially embracing the fall season i.e. one of change and reflection. The weather was beautiful this weekend with temperatures in the high 60s. I couldn’t be any happier – a great time to experiment with my Valentinos and burgundy.
