Them Harlem times...

So right now I am absolutely buzzed at the news that our flights to New York are finalised and we are ACTUALLY heading back to NYC on June 16th for FFFW 2013!!! Along with the excitement of Full Figured Fashion Week I am soooooooo excited to see our beautiful NY friends again! The excitement of it all has got me going through my photos from last years trip and making me realise how much I have not blogged about the most amazing time we had over there. (It seriously was THE MOST AMAZING time!!!) Cue the need to do a NY post right now :)

This was a fabulous day spent in Harlem with our gorgeous friend Deja from I'm Just Daisy!  Beginning with shopping, then some delicious soul food at Amy Ruth's (we were dying to try chicken and waffles!) and a lot of catching up since we hadn't seen each other since our last trip the year before. Deja then had to run off for class so naturally we tagged along to see her beautiful college. It totes put my baby college to shame, lol. We met her beautiful friend Ash and had a quick tour around the joint until we had to part! SUCH a short but good time catching up...

Amy Ruth's Chicken & Waffles- soooooo good.

What I wore:
  • Sheer, cropped, tribal top- Kmart $8
  • Black, oversized, cotton tee- Kmart $5
  • Pink tube skirt- Kmart $10
  • low cut Converse All-Stars $30
  • Glasses- some souvenere sotre in Manhattan $5 (LOVED them & was so sad when they broke :'( lol.)

My wardrobe choices were always dictated by the heat on our stay in NY. It was hawwwwt every day bro! This outfit kept me cool, comfy & colourful whilst walking around all day!

Its only 4 months late...

I'm shocking. Yes I said it and it's true. I put my poor baby blog on the back burner all the time because of my constant hectic schedule and lack of means of posting regularly but finally here is a new post, like the title says...only 4 months late.

These photos have been waiting patiently on my USB to see the light of day lol. Here are some pics from New Years Eve house party styles! Christmas/New Year is always family and friends time for me. A time to be around my people and enjoy the family I was blessed to be born into and the friends I that have, over years graduated to family status.

What I wore:

It was HOT so to keep it cool and comfy I went with:

  •  my black stretch cotton dress from H&M's basics line (two seasons ago)
  • the lime/pineapple coloured top is from Kmart (last season) and is also stretch cotton. Here I've worn it back to front but on the actual front of the top is a multi-coloured tribal pattern.
  • Converse All-Stars high tops were a Christmas gift from sister. Inspired by our love for the movie "A Cinderella Story" lol.
  • the clip-on earrings and statement necklace both thrifted
  • Head scarf is actually a large thin, cotton scarf which was a birthday gift from my beautiful sissy Moala who is second from the left in the picture below.

I hope you are all enjoying a prosperous and productive 2013 so far! Here's to actually carrying out one of my only New Year's Resolutions- to blog more often because I love it!

Big love xx
