Had To Share: Demestiks New York Afro Designs By Reuben Reuel

Awesome African collection

Art Becomes You

Had To Share is a new feature where I share interesting finds and quirks that I’ve stumbled upon on the internet and find them so good that I just HAD TO SHARE! I’ll open this feature with Reuben Reuel, an African-American designer. His label Demestiks New York is known for its signature African inspired prints and contemporary structural designs.

For his latest venture, Reuben has dished out structured peplum silhouettes, beautiful and colourful skater designs, coat dresses, chic skirts and enviable dresses all at very affordable prices! I swear if you are one to go bold with ethnic prints and colours, this is for you. I’ve possibly fallen in love with the whole collection and will be snagging a few pieces for myself. Let’s see if you love these too:

Signature Style the JOODJ way!

Ever looked into your closet/wardrobe and felt like you are tired of wearing what you have or having to put up the same look? or ever felt like looking different/standing out from the crowd when it comes to donning common pieces e.g shoes, bags et all? Then I guess this post has come at a better time! After watching an awesome interview of Mukami Kinoti – Founder & CEO of Joodj on my favorite show AM Live NTV, I said why not share this with my followers?

JOODJ  has a wide range of fabulous pieces i.e clips, bibs & cuffs that can be easily attached to your shoes, headbands, bags and easily double as jewelry for your ankle, wrist and neck; SANAA, ZIZI and FEDHA are my favorite collection. Instead of buying new shoes, dresses, jackets, belts, tops or bags all the time, revamp them by adding a touch of JOODJ fashion statement pieces simply by clipping! Its easy right?! Visit www.joodj.com and get yourself these fabulous and affordable fashion statement pieces today.

2014 Grammys: Who wore what…

So the 56th Annual Grammy Awards were held last night and this saw great music stars rock their best fashion pieces for the red carpet event. Grammys is best known for the outrageous fashion pieces stars don as they strut the red carpet; Pharell Williams‘ hat was the main head turner this year while the Daft Punk‘s head gear was just another eye popper.  Splash of color, sheers and metallic gowns were evident as the stars settled for elegant looks this time round. Amber rose, Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Christine Teigen, Taylor Swift, Ciara, Ariana Grande & Zendaya topped my best dressed list. Notably missing in action were music moguls Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Jeniffer Hudson, Kanye West, Adele, Milley Cyrus, Usher, Justin Bieber, Jessie J,  among others.

See who were what to the event.
