As myself (sade) & Nneoma stepped off the train to transfer to the next I could'nt help but notice this man waiting for the train. He looked a tad bit lost but yet his body language was very laid back. I shyly walked over to him and asked if it was alright with him if I took some pictures of him because I was digging his style. The puzzled look on his face made it clear to me he didnt speak much English so I gestured taking a picture with my hands. He agreed, unfortunately I wasnt able to get his name; email or any type of contact information. His lack of English and my train coming to a screeching halt wasn't helping. His grungy neatly tied boots accentuated the black sleek skinny jeans he wore. I liked the fact that he left his jacket open showcasing his vest and oversize scarf.

Sometimes you dont have time to style your hair to perfection. If you have long hair (real or weave) you can rock this look; Only takes 10 minutes top to do! All you need is a flat iron or curling iron + oil sheen or hair spray + and a large brush .
Hair: Remy 12"
Flat iron: Helix super tool
Oil sheen: Olive oil
Note: If you'd like to preserve this style for days at a time wrap curls around large rollers and cover with satin scarf.

Love your outerwear. Dress up your outerwear. Inspire with your outerwear because in no time you'll be saying farewell Winter and hello Spring .
Riss loves green this winter. I usually say go with a dark color just to be safe but Risa's bold green is the new black! The huge vibrant blue back pack and matching hat and mitten set just complete the look.
oh look at this view ..
Cashmere and Riss <3
Kiajah has such a simple yet attention grabbing look.
With her very feminine puffer coat; the ruffled neck
line and gorgeous belt around the waist; so POSH!
Myself, Ki, & Riss (Left to right)
Nneoma, co-author of this blog, always the more sensible
of us but yet the most enterprising of us all in her very
short pea-coat; fur tightly wrapped around her neck;
Some may find this look not-so-warm but I know one thing it's fetch !
Anyone can wear a pea-coat but not everyone will
stand out amongst the crowd of pea-coats.haha.
I-dont-know whats up with me this Winter and my new found love of fur; faux of coursee, I do have a heart :) .
But I must say Fur is a like a must-have this season. Whether it be a fox tail, a fur collar, a huge fur purse like myself. It does not matter just get some FUR lol .
Just a diamond in the ruff .
