the motherland

Ive learned a lot from you other bloggers out there and found a lot of different styles and people. One of the best parts is finding people who you have things in common with, like my fellow African blogesses. (shout to Diane, I love her style) Since some of you guys are so outright of your background, it made me feel crappy about not doing more to display mine. So decided to belt one of my (sister's) old outfits and wear it was a dress (this is actually a top that's supposed to be worn with pants, but the pants weren't that cute)


In other news, I went thrifting again a couple days ago and found this amazing wet seal dress, luckily it was half price so I got it for $2.50. Can't wait to wear it.




(Sorry, bad picture, it looks better on me)







I thought this picture was ridiculously amazing, check it




(cute, right?)







Super excited, my bestest friend who I havent seen in forever is coming to see me, Ill try to post some more this week+weekend!
