Blog Giveaway: African-inspired Accessories & Stationary!

I’m in Berlin for a New York Minute and to celebrate the launch of my blog’s Facebook Page, I’m doing a Blog Giveaway: WoooHoooo!  What’s up for grabs?  A statement and timeless Ankara print clutch bag, set of bracelets and Ankara print notebook (with lined paper) I got from Lagos.

Ankara Print Clutch

Nigerian Street StyleI could have taken still-life images of the clutch and bracelets but I decided to style them on myself to give my readers an idea of how wearable these pieces are- even for those who are not enjoying a warm climate at the moment.  Due to Ankara print pieces being heavily in vogue during the Spring/Summer season, it’s often seen as a seasonal trend, but this is not the case: with the appropriate styling, these pieces can be worn all year round. Write That Down.

My 14th Feature In ‘The Independent Fashion Bloggers’ Weekly Roundup

ifbConfession. I was seduced… by 38 posts this go round. 38! And as seduction would have it, my head was spinning trying to reduce that number to the standard 20. Many of you confessed your own seductions, which ran the gamut. Fall boots, an intriguing invitation, a city, a country, a seductive look of years past… and by Fashion in general.

Trends seducing IFB Bloggers right now are culottes {Never thought seducing and culottes would be in the same sentence, but there you have it}, cropped sweatshirts and sweaters, flannel, burgundy and mustard hues, and saddle bags to name a few.

Other themes of seduction included New York Comic-Con, photography tips, lessons on a couple decades, how to get an internship, history of one of the most seductive shoes, Halloween costuming and… a cocktail. There were also two thought provoking posts on diversity within the fashion and blogging worlds.

Now, just so I’m clear on the subject, where do you think seduction ends and stalking begins? I can only conclude from reviewing A Handful of Stories post that the gloves come off for seduction and stay on for stalking.

My 13th Feature In The ‘Independent Fashion Bloggers’ Weekly Roundup

ifbIFB Bloggers are from all over the world, different walks of life and ethnic backgrounds, varying ages and body types, etc.  Your common thread?  Perspective.  You share your perspective on beauty; how you see and feel beauty.  You inspire and give hope to others from your differences and individual perspective.  Yes, I swear I am still talking about fashion.

This weeks links share perspective on dressing over 40, petite fashion, Summer on budget and not on budget, and incorporating heritage fashions while staying true to personal style.  There are also a couple in depth posts reviewing the current ad campaign season, and a look into Ukraine’s fashion industry from the perspective of a designer.  

… and for the sewing savvy {and not so savvy}, a DIY Caftan!

Hot Links for Summer

Clearly, everyone around here is ready for warm weather. We’ve got kimono-inspired wraps, turbans, sunglasses, and sundresses, just to mention a few topics on the blogging radar this week. Where I live (San Francisco) it just gets cold and foggy in the summer, so I’m living vicariously through all of your summer wardrobe and beauty preparations. Bloggers are also covering some more sober topics including dress codes and marriage equality. There’s lots of good stuff to peruse so let’s get to the links!

Learning à la Mode

The thing I love most about fashion blogging is that it’s rarely only about clothes. It’s about the cultural traditions behind an outfit, using your creativity to create a whole new look, or to discover the real personalities behind style icons. This week’s roundup is enlightening in so many ways. We learned that Nigerian women really know how to do it up for weddings, that two skirts worn together can look very chic, that Anna Wintour is lovely during an interview (and might even tell you your second-hand dress is pretty), how to survive a shopping break… read on for these educational tidbits and so much more!
